The miracle turnaround that Jeev Milkha Singh needed did not happen and the Indian missed the cut after returning a modest one-under 69 in the second round of the Crowne Plaza International Golf Tournament in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Chandigarh-golfer signed off with a total of two-over 142, four strokes below the cut-line.
Jeev was off to a fine start with a birdie on the first hole. He gained another shot on the seventh in his flawless front-nine to make the turn two-under.
On his way back, Jeev went three-under with a birdie on the 14th but bogeys on the 15th and 17th marred his card.
At the top, American Bryce Molder took the lead with a sensational eight-under 62 which took his total to 13-under 127.
Another American Jason Bohn (65) took the second spot, a stroke behind Molder.
