Dalton, Sturgeon Miss Cut At Copper Rock Championship
SALT LAKE CITY – Kendra Dalton and Haley Sturgeon have both missed the cut at the Copper Rock Championship following the second round of play this afternoon.
Dalton, who graduated from Bringham Young University, struggled throughout the second round of the tournament as she managed to fire a six-over-par 78. Her round consisted of zero birdies and six bogeys. Similar to yesterday, Dalton’s struggles occurred on the front nine where she managed to make the turn at five over par. Only one of her six bogeys on the day came on the back nine.
Sturgeon, on the other hand, missed the cut due to her performance in the opening round and not the second round. Sturgeon shot one of the rounds of the day as she entered the clubhouse at four-over-par including bogeys on the final two closing holes. Her lone birdie of the day came on the short down-wind par 4 13th hole.
🚨 HOLE-IN-ONE ALERT 🚨 @TessHackworthy aces the par-3 4th with a 9-iron from 120 yards 👏🏽

The two local ladies were not the only high-profile players to miss the cut. Reigning champion Bailey Tardy missed the cut by one shot as she finished at nine-over-par.
