Paige Spiranac Makes Cut in Second LET Appearance

Paige Spiranac has come a long way as a professional golfer since she first turned heads as a social media sensation. The evolution in her game was apparent when she made her first cut in a Ladies European Tour event last week at the Scottish Ladies Open.

Spiranac's first appearance on the LET, last year, drew some criticism (wholly unwarranted, in our view), and she missed the cut. Spiranac touched on that in announcing she was going to Scotland:

In-between her first LET attempt and this one, Paige has had good finishes on the mini-tours, including her first pro win on the Cactus Tour.

And now she has her first cut on the LET, a step up from the mini-tours. Paige shot 76-75 to make the cut, then added a 74 in the final round. She finished tied for 58th. Not earth shattering by any means, but another sign of progress - not to mention proof of skill.

In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
