World golf No 3 Lydia Ko has made the cut at the women's US Open after an improved one-over 71 today on the tough Pinehurst course in North Carolina.

After shooting a six-over 76 in the opening round, Ko posted two birdies and three bogeys at Pinehurst No 2, the same course used for last week's men's US Open, to make the cut by 2.

Rookie pro Ko sits at +7 after 36 holes, trailing clubhouse leader Michelle Wie by 11 strokes. 

American Wie, who has shot back-to-back two-under 68s, leads by two shots from first-round leader Stacy Lewis, with half the field still on the course or yet to tee off. Lewis is early in her round.

When she finished her round, Ko was one shot outside the cut at +6. However soon after the cut-line (for the top-60 and ties) moved to +7. She is likely to be well inside the top 50 when the round ends.

Starting on the back nine, Ko started with three pars before bogeys at the par-four 13th and par-three 15th to sit at +8. A run of seven straight pars followed, before a birdie at the par-five fifth hole. The teen sensation immediately gave that shot back on the next hole before closing out her round with her second straight birdie on the par-three ninth.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
