AIG Women’s British Open: Notable players who won’t play the weekend at Muirfield, including world No. 1

With so much history this weekend in Muirfield, the cut is just a little more missing at the AIG Women's British Open. Not to mention the fact that this is the last major of 2022.
It's a long wait until next April's Chevron Championship.
World No. 1 Jin Young Ko tops the list along with defending champion Anna Nordqvist, Lexi Thompson and a host of other prominent players.
This is the first time female professionals have competed at Muirfield, one of the most famous clubs in the world. A total of 65 players made the cut in 3 overs.

This is the first missed cut at a major for Jin Young Ko since the 2018 AIG Women's British Open. Ko shot 76-71 and finished the tournament 5 overs with three bogeys in the last four holes.
Lexi Thompson (over 10)

After suffering major heartbreak at the KPMG Women's PGA, Lexi Thompson skipped the Amundi Evian Championship two weeks ago. At Muirfield, Thompson bogeyed her last three holes en route to a final 77. She only birdied twice over the course of two rounds and finished with 10 overs.
Anna Nordqvist (4 over)

The 2021 AIG Women's British Open winner came into the week saying she wasn't feeling any pressure. Just wanted to enjoy the moment. Making just three birdies in two rounds to finish the tournament 4 overs was certainly not what she had in mind.
Still, there's plenty to look forward to for Nordqvist, who is set to soon have a wedding party in Scotland after it was twice postponed due to the pandemic.

Dame Laura Davies has competed in the Women's British Open 42 times, a record. The 58-year-old finished with a shocking 10 on Friday 18, shooting 81 and finishing the tournament with 14 overs.
Davies is exempt from AIG until age 60, which happens to happen in 2024 when the Championship returns to the Old Course.
Ayaka Furue (4 Over)

The form that saw Ayaka Furue win her first LPGA title with a magical 62 five days ago at the Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open didn't last. The Japanese rookie bogeyed the 18th to end with 4 overs.
