Jesper Parnevik missed out by just two shots on the chance of playing in this year’s Open Championship at Turnberry.
This after carding a one-under 70 in the second and final round of the American final qualifier for the lone English major in Texas on Monday.
Parnevik, who let slip a golden opportunity to win the 1994 Open at the same Turnberry, slipped up again after getting himself in a good position with a round of 64 in the morning session.
Unfortunately he fell off the pace in the afternoon to miss out on one of the eight qualifying spots that were up for grabs.
American Matt Kuchar took the top spot after finishing 13-under-par by following a first round score of 63 with a 66 in the afternoon.
He was joined by fellow American Jeff Overton who carded rounds of 64 and 67 to finish at11-under, as well as six others who tied on 10-under overall: Davis Love III, Richard S Johnson, James Driscoll, Tim Wilkinson, Frederik Jacobson and Martin Laird.
Germany’s Alex Cejka, who had led after the morning session along with Kuchar on 63, shot a 71 in the afternoon to miss out.
