Stephanie Meadow carded a one-over 72 at the NW Arkansas Championship to stay just inside the cut mark after round two.
The Co Antrim native, who was among the early starters, will start Sunday's third and final round at the Pinnacle Country Club course from one under.
Meadow began the day from the back nine on two under after Friday's opening round. But consecutive bogeys on the 13th and 14th saw her drop back to level par.
But she rallied with a birdie on the 18th. As her second round approached its conclusion on the front nine, Meadow then picked up another shot on the eighth to return to two under.
However, a bogey on her final hole on the ninth meant she finished up on one under, just inside the projected cut mark for the 54-hole tournament.
Min-Jee Lee of Australia shares the lead on 12 under with the 2018 NW Arkansas winner Nasa Hataoka of Japan.
But they were just one shot ahead of South Korea's Eun-Hee Ji, who was among the late starters, as she began her final three holes of round two.
