New Zealand's Lydia Ko is on track to keep her perfect record of never missing a cut in 20 golf professional tournaments alive at the US Open in New York.  

Ko was three-over par after 16 holes in her second round when bad weather suspended play early on Saturday (NZT).

That left world No 1 amateur Ko in a tie for 32nd place for the tournament after she shot an even-par 72 in her opening round.

The cut is projected to be at five-over par. 

Ko will resume her second round 12 shots back from world No 1 Inbee Park (67, 68) who leads by two strokes from South Korean compatriot IK Kim.  

Ko began on the 10th tee and got off to a solid start. She bogeyed the par five 13th but birdied the 18th to make the turn in even-par 37.

She remained at even par until the third hole when she made an uncharacteristic triple bogey at the par three. She mixed birdies and bogeys on her final four holes to be three-over-par after 34 holes.

The youngest winner in LPGA Tour history is playing the US Open after an impressive showing last week at the Arkansas Championship where she finished tied for fourth.

Ko, who is playing her fifth major championship this week at the Open, has finished as the leading amateur in every major she has contested.

She has competition for that title this week with Canadian amateur Brooke Mackenzie Henderson also in a share of 32nd place after rounds of 71 and 76.  

American amateurs Casie Cathrea and Doris Chen are a further shot back on four-over-par.
