Disastrous second round has Lydia Ko in danger of missing cut at US Open

Lydia Ko has had a shocking second day at the US Open in Ohio, with the Kiwi golfer now looking unlikely to make the cut after a round of five-over this morning.

Beginning the day on the back nine, Ko bogeyed her second hole of the round, wiping away her -1 advantage from yesterday.

Things would begin to get better for Ko, with a birdie on the 16th, before finishing the back nine with a bogey on the 18th.

On the front nine however, Ko had a bogey on the second, before back-to-back blemishes on the fourth and fifth holes.

Ko would finish the day with a bogey on the ninth, seeing her at +5 for the round, and +4 for the tournament, sitting in a tie for 70th place, one shot over the projected cut line.

The Kiwi trails leader Sarah Jane Smith of Australia by a massive 14 shots, if she's to advance to tomorrow's third round.
