The first 72 holes are played on both courses, while the final 18 holes take place on the Champions course.

A cut will take place after 72 holes, where the number of players gets reduced to 70 golfers.

Dreher, who currently sits tied for 101st after 2 rounds, shot a 77 on the first day and a 78 today.

Only the Top 40 players receive tournament memberships, so Dreher has some catching up to do if she is to qualify for the LPGA. Best of luck Kirby, everyone at home is routing for you.
