Padraig shoots a second round of four over par 75 to miss the cut at the PGA Championship. Starting on the back nine, he got off to a solid start with five straight pars before a visit to the water cost him a double bogey six on the par four 15th hole. He did bounce back with a birdie at the par four 16th, where he hit his approach shot close, but another shot went at the par five 18th to be out in two over par. The front nine was a mixture of one birdie and three bogies, on a day the course played especially tough. Its back to the Seniors tour now for an important run of events, including a Major next week!

Disappointing opening round for Padraig at Valhalla as he shoots a six over par round of 77. On a very tough course, he found numerous bunkers off the tee and also ran up a double bogey seven on the par five 7th hole, where he found water off the tee. He made just one birdie on the par five 10th hole and will need a low round Friday to progress as the cut line looks to be around level par!

Padraig plays this week at the famed Valhalla course which is hosting the PGA Championship. As a former winner, he is invited back each year and will relish the chance to compete against the elite in the game! A who’s who of the game is playing with all the tours represented and of course local PGA professionals who have qualified. The course is long and arduous so length and accuracy off the tee is essential. It all starts Thursday!

Tee Times: Round one Thursday, at 8.35pm GMT, and Friday Round two, at 3.10pm GMT, with Patrick Reed and Sam Burns
