SANTA FE — It was more like it had hoped. But it might not be good enough for Team New Mexico to make the cut at the 12th USGA Women’s State Team Championship at the Club at Las Campanas.
Teeing off in the morning made a big difference for the trio from New Mexico during Wednesday’s second round of the 54-hole event — despite cold temperatures early in its round and heavy rain late. However, the team is only tied for 25th place in the 48-team field. The 36-hole cut is scheduled to be the top 21 teams and ties.
The cut was originally slated for Wednesday night. There were still, however, 12 teams on the course when darkness suspended play Wednesday. There was also a 48-minute rain delay in the cold and wet afternoon wave.
The USGA will attempt to complete the second round Thursday, starting at 7 a.m. Once finished, the cut is scheduled and the final round is slated for 9 a.m.
