Michael Hoey is playing life’s long game

On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Olivia Mehaffey continues to search for form on the Ladies European Tour as she missed her seventh straight cut on the professional circuit at the Big Green Open in the Netherlands.

The Tandragee star had started her second round at Rosendaelsche Golf Club just one shot off the cut line but collapsed to an eight-over 80 on day two to end the tournament 11-over, seven shots off the weekend mark.

Mehaffey had three bogeys, a double and a triple on her scorecard and, despite parring her way back to the clubhouse on her back nine, the damage had already been done to see her miss out on the weekend again.

It’s been a struggle for the former Arizona State ace, who has admitted she has not adapted to the professional game as much as she would have hoped, and she will hope she can find something for the second half of the season.

At the top of the leaderboard, Australia’s Whitney Hillier finished her second round with three straight birdies in a four-under 68 to take a one-shot lead at the halfway stage as she reached eight-under-par in the Netherlands.

The 31-year-old finished with six birdies and two bogeys to take a slender advantage over Austria’s Sarah Schober, who fired a 70 in her second round to reach seven-under, with Indian pair Vani Kapoor and Diksha Dagar tied for third at five-under.
