Aditi makes the cut; Lahiri misses out
Aditi had three birdies against four bogeys after starting the day at T-18 and ended at T-32.

Aditi Ashok shot a solid two-under 70 to make the cut and followed it up with 2-over 74 in the third round at the Lotte Championships.

Aditi had three birdies against four bogeys after starting the day at T-18 and ended at T-32.

Brooke Henderson (73) entered Friday with a two-shot lead and made three birdies on her outward nine to stretch her lead to five at the turn. But she stumbled on her inward journey.

After a birdie on the par-5 13th got her to 12-under, Henderson made a four-putt double on the par-3 16th to slide back to 10-under.

Then, she went long on her approach on 18 and made bogey from the back bunker to finish at 9-under.

Lahiri misses cut

Anirban Lahiri continued to have problems with his putter as he missed a  lot of makeable putts to shoot three-over 74 in the second round and miss the cut in the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island,  US.

Lahiri, who scored 72 in the first round, had a nightmarish second round as he missed five putts 10 feet or inside and two more between 10-15 feet.

Twice he had to take a penalty and ended the day with three birdies, four bogeys and a double to miss the cut by as much as four shots.

Among those missing the cut were Paul Casey, Marc Leishman and Tyrell Hatton, all ranked among the top 20.

Bryson DeChambeau shot a career-best 7-under 64 on Friday to take the lead into the weekend.

DeChambeau's first event as a pro was at Harbour Town Golf Links in 2016. Two years later, he posted his lowest ever on the PGA TOUR to get to 10-under 132, one ahead of red-hot Ian Poulter and Si Woo Kim.

Poulter showed he's not done playing high-level golf with a bogey-free 64. Kim, THE PLAYERS Championship winner, had a 65 that included a two-shot penalty for touching sand after a bunker shot.

Two shots behind DeChambeau were Chesson Hadley (68), past RBC Heritage winner Brandt Snedeker (64), Luke List (64) and first-round leader Rory Sabbatini (70).

World No 1 Dustin Johnson shot a second straight 69 and was tied for 26th, six shots off the lead.
