A trio of local golfers in Michelle Wie, Claire Choi and Britney Yada all missed the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open on Friday.

Wie, a Punahou alumna, shot a 12-over 154 over the first two rounds. Yada, a Waiakea alumna, shot a 13-over 155. Choi, also from Punahou, golfed under amateur status as she is still a member of the Santa Clara women’s golf team. Choi shot the best out of the Hawaii golfers with a 10-over 152, finishing four strokes shy of the cut line.
