The Northern Irishman fell apart on the final stretch of his last round, bogeying three of the final four holes. His 74 means that he is likely to be two shots outside of the cut when it is made on Saturday.
It could be the first time he hasn’t made it to the weekend since last year’s Irish Open. However, he already missed 29 cuts in his entire career, which is more than double the 13 Tiger Woods has managed in the whole of his.
The 25-year-old has missed the past three weeks, and looked rusty on the course. This will not be the perfect start to his build up to the Masters in six weeks’ time. Should he win the major it would complete a career grand slam.
“I’m p***ed off,” the world number one said. “I don’t like missing cuts. I’m not going to be playing this weekend, which is not nice. Usually, I’m good at taking it from the range to the course. That’s never really been a problem. But this week, it was funny, it felt like the first tournament of the season when I’ve actually played two events.”
