Defending champion Hinako Shibuno will miss the cut at the Women & # 39; s Open and will finish 12 over bar after two rounds.

The Japanese 21-year-old captured the hearts of golf fans when she won at Woburn in 2019 when she first played outside of her home country.

But she struggled in stormy, wet conditions at Royal Troon, with a 78-over-par 78 in the second round.

It leaves her well beyond the expected cut of six.

Bronte's English law slumped for a day, but it also looks like she will miss the eight cut overall, while compatriot Charlotte Thompson will miss ten .

The leaders dropped as wind and rain blew across the left course, with Germany's Sophia Popov at the top left of the leaderboard at the bottom for her tee time of 14:22 BST.

Nighttime leader Amy Olson, from the US, was just inside the cut after five bogeys on the front nine.

Very few players went under par on Friday, but fellow countryman Austin Ernst moved up to tie for second place after a round of 70.

Scottish Catriona Matthew finished level par on Thursday, while England's Georgia Hall – the 2018 champion – was over twice. Both will try to conquer the ever-increasing winds to maintain their place at the top of the standings later on Friday.
