An and Hampshire miss cut at Open

Ben An and Travis Hampshire both missed the cut at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links following second-round play in the 110th United States Open.

An, a Bradenton resident, carded a 4-over par, 75 on Day Two.

Hampshire, who is No. 2 on the local West Florida Golf Tour's Order of Merit, shot 77 Friday.

Both players missed their chance to continue on the weekend, which players 7-over par or better qualified for.

For An, the reigning U.S. Amateur champ, the result is his second missed cut in major championships this year.

The perks of winning the national amateur title meant An earned an invite to The Masters and automatic exemptions into both U.S. and British opens.

For Hampshire, a mini-tour professional, he earned qualification through the grueling local and sectional stages before exiting without a payday in his trip to California's crown jewel of golf courses.
