Reuters and staff writer, with CNA

Chen, who was raised in Taiwan before moving to the US to pursue her golf dreams, is making her debut at the US Women’s Open, and is the first Taiwanese amateur to advance to the final round of the tournament.

Taiwan’s Yani Tseng, failed to make the cut after hitting a seven-over par 151 through the first two rounds.

Once considered among the best golfers in the world and the youngest player ever to win five major championships, the former World No.1 continues a 15-month winless spell. However, Tseng, 24, is not discouraged, tweeting, “Wish I am still playing out there. But I had lots of fun played at Shinnecock today. Be patient, I will be where I want to be !!!”

Taiwan’s Candie Kung withdrew from the tournament without completing her second round.
