Luke Donald was one of the favourites to lift the claret jug on Sunday, but the World No. 1 failed to make the cut on Friday.
Donald has been the best player on the tour this year, but for many reasons he once again failed to make an impact at the Open.
After finishing six over par, Donald had a miserable second day. In hindsight, a three put on the first hole all but summed up his day.
Donald was not the only big name to miss the cut, however. World No. 2 and fellow Englishman, Lee Westwood, and compatriot Ian Poulter also had a sorry time at St. Georges.
Two-time Open Champion Padraig Harrington and 2010 US Open Champion Graeme McDowell also went home early.
Donald has said that to win the Open Championship he has to improve his game, but here are four reasons why he will never be victorious on home soil.
