The world number four followed up her opening round 74 with a seven over par 79.

It is just the third time Ko has missed a cut in her professional career.

The last time she missed weekend play was at the Kia Classic in California in March.

She hasn’t won a tournament in over a year.

Ko’s round today included six bogies and a double bogey.

She missed the cut by four shots and was 14 shots behind the leader Christie Kerr of the United States.

At the halfway point of the tournament Kerr, who shot a one-over 73, is five- under for the tournament after a day where blustery conditions at Dundonald Links made scoring difficult.

First-round leader Karrie Webb of Australia is a shot behind after a three-over-par 75 in her second round.

Only six players were under par at the halfway stage, with Korea’s Sei Young Kim and Sun Young Yoo on three-under, Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum two-under and Iceland’s Olafia Kristinsdottir on one-under.
