Cheyenne Woods Just Missed Going from Low Round Thursday to High Round Friday on LET
Cheyenne Woods doubled 2 holes, bogeyed another 2, and couldn't make a birdie all day to shoot a 78 the day after she opened the Open de Espana with a 64. It's all part of the learning process for the LET rookie, but it's a particularly painful lesson on a day she went from -8 and 2 up on her closest pursuer to -2 and 6 down on the leaders in the clubhouse, Lee-Anne Pace and Celine Herbin. Only a 79 from Stephanie Michl prevented Woods from suffering the high round on Friday after firing the low round on Thursday. [Correction: 4 players helped Woods out by failing to break 80.] Phew! Good news is, Cheyenne made the cut and is actually still within the top 20 as of this writing. So she'll live to fight another day. Hopefully this roller coaster start to the tournament will only make her stronger in the long run--and this weekend.
