Liz Nagel bounced back from a rough Saturday to finish the U.S. Women’s Open strong.

The former Michigan State golfer and DeWitt native wrapped up the tournament with an even-par round Sunday at Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania.

The round of 70 was the second-best of the U.S. Women’s Open for Nagel, who was playing in just her second career LPGA Tour event. Nagel finished her first career major in 63rd place at 16-over par.

Nagel, who is in her debut season as a professional, had three birdies and three bogeys during her successful final round. That helped her bounce back from a third round where she finished 13-over par.

DeWitt’s Nagel ‘thrilled’ to be in U.S. Women’s Open

Nagel accomplished one of her goals this weekend by making the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open. She started the tournament strong, shooting a round of 68 Thursday that had her ranked in the top 10 of the leaderboard. She fell back a little Friday, but ended the day among the 63 golfers that made the cut in what started as a field of 156.
