Talley 7 shots back at British Open

By James D. Horne jhorne@paducahsun.com

Emma Talley made the cut at the 2014 Women's British Open and is in striking distance of the lead after she shot a 1-over 73 in the second round Friday. The Princeton native and University of Alabama golfer ended the second round tied for 16th place and is 1-over 145 for the tournament.

Talley is just seven shots back of leader Mo Martin, who sits in first place with a 6-under 138 after shooting a 69 for a second straight day. Talley is tied with six others, including defending champion Stacy Lewis.

So Yeon Ryu and Beatriz Recari are tied for second at 141. Two golfers are tied for fourth at 2 under, four are tied for sixth at 1 under and six are tied for 10th at even par, one stroke ahead of Talley.

Talley, playing as an amateur, will start at hole No. 1 at 10:15 this morning with Ai Miyazato in Group No. 27. Coverage begins on ESPN2 at 7 a.m.

After parring on the first hole, Talley made bogey, par, par and bogey, before making her first birdie on No. 6. She parred the next two holes and bogeyed at No. 9 to finish the front nine with a 2-over 37.

Talley started the back nine with a bogey, but settled down with three straight pars and then dropped birdies on No. 14 and No. 15. The Alabama junior ended the second round with three consecutive pars and wrote down a 36 for the back nine to get her down to 1 over for the tournament.

The former Caldwell County standout was better on the fairways, hitting eight of 14 Friday, compared to the seven of 14 she hit on Thursday.

She wasn't as good finding the putting surface Friday and was 8 of 18 on greens in regulation. She made 14 of the 18 greens on Thursday.

Talley did have two sand saves in two tries on Friday after not saving her two chances on Thursday and she drove better Thursday. She drove an average distance of 237.5 yards on Friday compared to the 229.0 yards on Thursday.

Talley also putted less Friday. She putted 26 times against the 33 putts she tried on Thursday.
