08 February, 2019: A disastrous front nine ruined Vani Kapoor’s hopes of making the cut on her LPGA debut, as she shot three-over 75 in the second round of ISPA Handa Vic Open, co-sanctioned by the LPGA. Vani, playing at the Par-72 Beach course had two double bogeys, two bogeys and three birdies, but it was still two shots short of the cut mark of Top-65 and ties.

She totaled 146 and was Tied-77th as the cut fell at one-under 144.

The first two rounds were played at Par-73 Creek Course and the Par-72 Beach Course.

Also missing the cut were the other two Indians, Aditi Ashok (73-76) was Tied-109th and Diksha Dagar (78-72), also playing her maiden LPGA event, was Tied-124th.

Kim Kaufman of the US was leader by two shots after a second successive 66, the second being on the Par-73 Creek Course, where she dropped just one bogey on the second, but had six other birdies and an eagle for a seven-under 66. A day earlier she carded six-under 66 at the Beach Course with seven birdies and one bogey.

Kim was followed by Japan’s Haru Nomura (67-67) and Australian Su Oh (67-68). The first round leader, Felicity Johnson of England slipped with a second round of 74 and was Tied-ninth after a first round 65.
