Even the world’s top two players get the weekend off sometimes. In fact, it’s happened more in the past few years than you may think.
The last time it happened? Not that long ago. It was last year’s U.S. Open, where Luke Donald and McIlroy, the top two, respectively, each missed the cut at The Olympic Club. Prior to that? Donald and Lee Westwood each failed to reach the weekend at the 2011 British Open, which marked the first time since the OWGR was implemented that each of the top ranked players missed the cut at a major.
