Cole Miller Misses Cut At U.S. Open

Penn State men’s golf graduate Cole Miller missed the cut at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills after shooting a 74 in the second round of the tournament.

Miller’s second round performance was a four-stroke improvement from his first round score of 78, but it was not enough to give him a chance to play in rounds three and four of the tournament, which is being held in Southampton, NY. His final score of +12 is four strokes above the tournament’s cutline of +8.

The New Tripoli, PA, native never recovered from a rocky start in the first round. He birdied the Par 5 fifth hole, but not before a bogey and double bogey on the second and third holes of the round. Miller’s fifth-hole birdie was one of just three he would make throughout the tournament.

Miller, who is Penn State’s all-time scoring leader, reached the green in regulation on 18 of the 36 holes he played. His average driving distance of 310.1 yards was more than 11 yards higher than that of the field.

In addition to Miller, several of golf’s biggest names like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Bubba Watson missed the cut. He finished the tournament with a lower score than PGA Tour veterans Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott. who finished at +14 and +13, respectively.

Miller qualified for the 2018 U.S. Open on June 4 after finishing his sectional qualifier in third place. He made his professional debut at the Bayview Place DC Bank Open in Victoria, British Columbia last week, finishing tied for 23rd with a score of -6.
