Seoul, Korea (Sports Network) - LPGA Tour player Laura Davies missed the cut at the Korean Open Friday after a second-round, five-over 77. She finished two rounds at 11-over-par 155 and missed the weekend by four strokes. "Nothing was bad, but nothing was really good," said Davies, who has won 20 times in her LPGA Tour career. "It was just a little bit missing from everything."

Davies became the fourth woman to play in a men's tournament this year when she teed it up in the Asian PGA Tour's Korean Open at Woo Jung Hills Country Club.

, got the ball rolling when she played at the PGA Tour's Colonial. Suzy Whaley won a qualifying spot to play in the PGA's Greater Hartford Open and 13-year-old phenom Michelle Wie played on both the Canadian Tour and Nationwide Tour this season.

Davies mixed one birdie and six bogeys in her round Friday and realized that her problem competing with men is the big irons she needs to hit into greens and her poor putting.

"I had 35 putts today. It's too many, and you're going to miss every cut with 35 putts," said Davies. "It's very hard for me to use five-irons, four-irons and three-irons to get the ball close to birdie."

Lee Sun-ho of Korea carded an even-par 72 and is alone in the lead at four- under-par 140. Ted Oh, the first-round leader, posted a two-over 74 on Friday and is tied for second with American Robert Jacobson at minus-three.

John Daly is part of a group tied for fourth place at two-under-par 142.

Justin Rose also missed the 36-hole cut as he finished two rounds at nine- over-par 153.
