The cut. 70 players made the cut at 10-over-par 152 after two rounds of play at the $1.8 million SemGroup Championship Presented by John Q. Hammons. 10-over-par is the highest cut on the LPGA Tour since the 2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship (also 10-over-par).
Second-round leader Paula Creamer (70-71=141) is the only player under par through two rounds of play. The 21-year-old shot even-par 71 on Friday to take the lead at 1-under heading into Saturday, when temperatures are expected to be chilly through the morning and winds are predicted at 10-20 mph from the NNW.
The 6,602-yard, par-71 layout at Cedar Ridge Country Club played over a full shot easier on Friday (75.48) than it did Thursday (76.78). Creamer made three birdies and three bogies on her way to even-par for the day. It marks the fifth time that Creamer has held a second-round lead in a 72-hole tournament, the last being the 2007 Mitchell Company LPGA Tournament of Champions where she won by eight strokes.
