CHARLESTON, S.C. (WTVA) - The fifth time appears to be the charm for Ally McDonald.
After missing the cut in her first four U.S. Women's Open appearances, the former MSU standout is tied for 12th after 54 holes at the Country Club of Charleston.
McDonald, who made the cut by just one stroke, shot a bogey-free round of 4-under 67 on 'moving day.' The 67 put her in a tie for 12th at 2-under par.
"I was telling my family, 'I just feel like I have a monkey on my back at this tournament,' cause it's one that I've always wanted to perform well in," said McDonald. "It's one (a tournament) that I hold to a very high standard, wanna play my best, but unfortunately my game hasn't been there completely."
Former Duke teammates Yu Liu of China and Celine Boutier of France are tied for the lead at 7-under par.
