Luke Donald crashes out of US Open qualifiers

Luke Donald was unable to finish in the top 14 as his hopes of qualifying for the US Open were dashed this week.

To make matters worse for the Englishman, many of his peers managed to cement their place at the event, including Scot Martin Laird, Steve Stricker, Keegan Bradley and Stewart Cink.

The 39-year-old, currently ranked 75th in the world, was unable to grab a place in the top 14 of a very strong field playing at the Brookside and Lakes courses in Columbus.

Donald came through on five under after his two rounds, three shots off the cut mark, which means he will be sitting out this year’s second major, set to be played at Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

The Englishman is still without a major win, with his best US Open finish coming in 2013 when tied for eighth at Merrion.

However, Scot Martin Laird will be there after he carded a pair of 67s to finish on 10 under, while former major champions Keegan Bradley and Stewart Cink also made the grade.

Former Ryder Cup player Steve Stricker made it through his section at the Germantown Country Club and Ridgeway as he finished top of the pile with a total score of 132.
