Lee Westwood missed the cut for the second time in a month, at last weekend’s Players Championship.
It was the Worksop golfer’s 11th attempt to win a tournament that has seen him finish in the top 10 five times.
Playing alongside Carl Pettersson and Shawn Stefani he signed for a first round four over 76.
And although he made five birdies on Friday, three bogeys cost him and he missed the cut.
He’s back on home soil next week at the PGA Championship at Wentworth.
