Former Miss America is showing her skills off to large audiences in a different way this weekend
Playing for the first time at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Kira made the three day cut which meant she will be one of the limited amateurs to play on Sunday.
Her playing partner for the week was tour pro Ryan Armour.
"I'm so excited! I'm here for the ladies and this has been an incredible experience," Kazantsev told CBS' Amanda Balionis after her round.

"I got into this event Monday morning at 10 a.m. so to come down and make the cut, and my pro Ryan has just been amazing, so I'm just so happy to be here."
Kira pulled the load of the score as Ryan had a rough week.
She was the only female amateur to make the cut. Kira, who is now 27, won the 2015 Miss America pageant in New York.
