Saturday was a tough one on the course for Liz Nagel.
The DeWitt native and former Michigan State golfer struggled in the third round of play at the U.S. Women’s Open, shooting a 13-over par 83 to fall into 63rd place.
Nagel, who is in her debut season as a professional and playing in just her second career LPGA Tour event, had bogeys in 10 of her 18 holes during play Saturday at Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania. That included a double bogey and a triple bogey and prevented Nagel from making a climb back up the leaderboard.
The 23-year old Nagel started the tournament strong, shooting a 68 to finish the opening day in the top 10. That helped position Nagel to make her first career cut in an LPGA Tour event and stay around for the whole weekend at the major.
Nagel tees off in the final round Sunday morning.
