The former world number one carded a second round of 75 in the British Open -- four strokes better than his opening effort of 79 -- but nowhere near enough to punch his ticket for the weekend in the year’s third major.
It is the first time that he has missed the cut in The Open in six attempts, although he has only finished in the top 20 once -- at St Andrews in 2010 when he tied for third behind Louis Oosthuizen.
