Sooner trio makes the cut



Lucy Nunn, an assistant coach at Kentucky but originally from Lawton, shot her second straight 75 to finish at 6 over.


Shot of the day: Lacey Fears, who finished the day tied for 17th at 3 over, had a hole-in-one on No. 2 Tuesday. Fears, who plays collegiately at Mercer University, used a 7-iron to ace the 153-yard hole.

It was the first hole-in-one at the WAPL since Mary Matson’s at the 2009 event Red Tail Golf Club in Devens, Mass.


Assist of the day: Staggs was hunting for her ball in the left rough on No. 8 and the five minutes allowed to find it was running out. It was found by Transcript photographer Jay Chilton.

“It was just in the left rough and everyone was looking farther to the left and I was like, it has to be right here because I didn’t think it was that far left,” Staggs said. “He came up on it and that was nice. It kept me from not being so stressed out, because I really didn’t want to go back to the tee.”

Staggs went on to bogey the hole, but shot a 73 and safely made the cut at 4-over par.


Noteable players heading home: Emily Tubert, winner of the 2010 championship, missed the cut, as did 2011 runner-up Marissa Dodd.
