Floyd County is born and Virginia Tech golfer Amanda Hollandsworth, who finished 5th at the NCAA national golf tournament this year, missed the cut by eight strokes Saturday morning after a bogie-free seven holes to finish her round after weather suspended play Friday in the Women’s Open in Charleston, SC.
Hollandsworth shot three under par for her final eight holes but finished her rounds at 11 over with a score of 153. The cut was at 145.
Hollandsworth, who turned pro before teeing off in the Women’s U.S. Open Thursday morning, is not alone in missing the cut in weekend professional golf action. Masters winner Tiger Woods shot three over par in round two of the PGA Championship Tournament Friday and didn’t score well enough to get into the final two rounds. At least five other match winners this year also missed the cut in the Women’s Open.
Hollandsworth finished her second round three strokes better than her first round on Friday.
