Padraig Harrington: More disappointment for out-of-form Irishman

Sky Bet

Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship on Friday, losing his PGA Tour card for next season.

The Irishman finished four-over par after two rounds at Sedgefield Country Club, well outside the projected cut line of two-under as the second round wound down.
                  
Harrington won The Open in 2007 and 2008 and the US PGA Championship in 2008, but that triumph was his last on the PGA Tour.
                  
He will now head back to Europe, where a start in the Italian Open in two weeks seems likely to be his next tournament.
                  
Harrington can use his one-time exemption for being in the top 50 on the career money list to maintain his playing privileges on the PGA Tour next year, but he indicated he would instead seek sponsor exemptions later this year for some of the lower-key events that open the 2014-15 season.
                  
"My expectations were very high this week, so this is disappointing," Harrington said.

"My expectations were very, very high. I just can't get out of my own way. Such is life.

"I'm certainly working on some good things. That's maybe why my expectations were so high. It will probably happen when I least expect it."
