Former University of Kansas golfer Gary Woodland finished his second round at the British Open with three consecutive birdies to finish on the same day.

But Woodland’s late run was not enough to save him and he missed the cut after shooting 3 over par in the first two laps of the event.

Woodland shot 73 Thursday and followed with a 70 Friday to miss the cut line by two shots.

Although it ended on a high note, the former Jayhawk’s second round also featured four back-to-back bogeys, from No.9 to No.12. That streak ended Woodland’s hopes of staying for the week. -end.

Woodland finished his heat tied for 98th place, but the final record will show his performance at the event as a missed cut.

Woodland finished in the top 50 of golf’s other three majors in 2021 – tied for 40th at the Masters in April, tied for 38th at the PGA Championship in late May and tied for 50th at the US Open in June .

His performance at the Royal St. George in Sandwich, England continued a recent trend of British Open wrestling for the Topeka native. He has now missed the cup in his last two UK Opens – the tournament has not been played in 2020 – and has also finished outside the top 50 in five of his last six appearances at the event abroad . This followed a string of top 40 (2011, 2012, 2014) rankings in its first three tries.
