Rachel Rohanna turned her game around a little bit Friday in the second round of the U.S. Women's Open, shooting 3-over 74 at the Country Club of Charleston.

The Waynesburg Central graduate missed the cut with a two-round total of 11-over 153.

The second round was delayed due to weather and play was eventually suspended at 8:24 p.m. because of darkness. Mamiko Higa maintained the top spot on the leaderboard at 6-under 136 after an even-par 71 in the second round. Jessica Korda trails by a stroke.

"A little bit," Rohanna said of her improved score in the second round. "I just didn't hit the ball well, still."

Rohanna opened on the front nine in the second round and promptly carded a bogey-5 on her first hole of the day.

She bogeyed the third hole, but managed to get one of the strokes back with a birdie on No. 5. Rohanna parred the rest of the front nine to go out in 1-over 37.

Rohanna had bogeys Nos. 11 and 14, and seven pars to play the back nine in 2-over 37.

"It was not too windy today compared to yesterday. I didn't play 'bad,' just kind of blah both days," said Rohanna. "As you saw, no big numbers, just too many bogeys in the first 11 holes and not enough birdies to make it up."

Rohanna continued, adding, "Nope, nothing really bad and nothing very good. Just some not-so-great ball striking in bad wind, which resulted in bogeys."

Rohanna expects to be back on the course in the coming week, but in an LPGA Tour event.

"I'm almost 100 percent sure I'll be in Atlantic City for the ShopRite LPGA," said Rohanna, adding with emphasis, "It's been a crazy four weeks for sure!"
