-5 cut lowest in LPGA history; Yost, Inkster survive

PHOENIX – How low did they go Friday at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup?

The cut was set at a record 5 under par.

That’s the lowest cut in LPGA history, surpassing the 4-under mark set two years ago at the Manulife LPGA Classic.

A year ago, Sei Young Kim won the Founders Cup with a 27-under-par total, equaling Annika Sorenstam’s 72-hole record.

Stacy Lewis and Ariya Jutanugarn are almost halfway there this year. They share the lead at 13 under going into the weekend.

Count Kaylin Yost among the 74 players who made the cut Friday. Playing in her first LPGA event after Monday qualifying this week, she is at 6 under after a second-round 71. She brought her remarkable story of perseverance to the first tee.

Born with a hip malady, Yost spent the first 16 months of her life in a body cast. Her parents were told she would never walk. At 2 years old, doctors delivered more tough news. They told the family Kaylin was hearing impaired. Today, she walks with golf’s best and hears with a pair of hearing aids. She’s hoping a good finish this week will open more opportunities for her to earn her way to the LPGA beyond Monday qualifying.

Also surviving the cut was 56-year-old Juli Inkster, who is also at 6 under after a second-round 73.
