Lorie Kane hit a rough patch on the back nine Friday during round two of the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Carnoustie, but managed to squeak in under the cutline by one shot at one-over.
The Charlottetown native began the day well enough with birdies at No. 2 and No. 6 At that point she was only five strokes out of the lead. Then the wheels came off as Kane sputtered down the stretch to post a four-over 76 to land T57 for the championship.
Kane heads into weekend play a dozen shots behind leader Caroline Masson of Germany.
Kane’s compatriots, Alena Sharp of Hamilton and Barrie’s Stephanie Sherlock, both missed the cut.
Sharp had rounds of 77 and 72 to finish four shots off the cut pace and Sherlock carded a 77 Thursday and a 73 Friday to come up short by five strokes.
Masson will begin play Saturday one shot ahead of South Koreans Inbee Park and first round leader Meena Lee.
