Yani Tseng ended her run of 12 consecutive rounds without breaking par Friday at the Evian Masters, but she still missed the cut.

Tseng, the Rolex world No. 1, posted a 1-under-par 71 in the second round at Evian Golf Club in France but fell one shot short of advancing into the weekend.

The missed cut is Tseng’s second in her last three starts. She has now gone eight events since her last LPGA title. While it’s harsh calling that a slump, it constitutes the longest stretch Tseng has gone without winning in her 76 weeks as the world No. 1.
