BECKIsraeli golfer Laetitia Beck saw her first major tournament end early on Friday after she failed to make the cut in the British Open.

Making her professional debut at the Ricoh Women’s British Open, held at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club at Southport & Ainsdale, she became the first Israeli to reach a golf major when she qualified for the event at the start of last week.

However, after carding a six-over-par 78 in the first round, she then registered a five-over-par 77 in the second round, meaning she ended on +11 – missing the cut by five shots.

Deciding to turn professional after qualifying for the Open, the Belgian-born 22-year-old has won the Israeli Championships five times, and claiemd two gold medals at both the 2009 and 2013 Maccabiah Games. She also hopes to represent Israel at the the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
