Another missed cut at the Omega Masters. First round was not too bad with a -3 but a +3 second round was not good enough.

I see Luke is listed in the BMW at Wentworth this week under a "Medical Extension" Cat 1a. It would be nice to see him make the cut.

I haven't been taking much notice of the "Categories " recently so when did the change the Cat 1 time limit?
Category 1 -- Winners of The Race to Dubai and Majors (Exemption reduced from 7 to 5 years)

Very poor start at +4 so has a lot to do 2nd Round. Eddie P was even worse at +7.

Failed to make the cut again. Double bogey on the 8th and a triple on the 11th meant +3 for the round meant he finished on +7.

Luke will be playing in the Alfred Dunhill this week, Cat 1a medical extension, so barring injury he will at least play 3 rounds for a change. His Team partner is Jamie Redknapp.

saw Luke in the Sky coverage of the Dunhill Links event at the weekend. He seemed to be playing well, and a creditable 10th = placing could have been marginally better with a little bit of good fortune on Sunday. He certainly looked comfortable out on the course, good to see him hitting those great iron shots into the greens.

I wonder if he can take this as a springboard for nexy season ?

I don't know how the European Tour operate their "Medical Extensions" but Luke is also on a Medical Extension on the PGA Tour
https://www.pgatour.com/fantasy/medical-extensions.html
If you wish to get some idea of how that works start on page 112 of https://qualifying.pgatourhq.com/static-assets/uploads/2017-18_pga_tour_handbookregs_final.pdf "d.Major Medical/Family Crisis/Mandatory Obligation Extension "

He is playing this week in the "Italian Open" under a cat1 Medical Extension.

Back to mediocre for a 2nd round of +1. 3 X birdies, 2 x bogies and 1 x double bogey. He can't seem to get any real consistency but is still tied in 31st with -4.

Playing 2 rounds in one day doesn't seem to agree with him.
3rd Round-1 x Eagle, 4 x Birdies, 5 x Bogeys and 1 x Triple Bogey.
4th Round- 3 x Birdies and 5 x Bogeys.
Surprisingly he finished level Par for the competition.

He was looking so, so good back in November when we were testing. I'd imagine its just tough getting a rhythm when you haven't played that many tournaments. But physically he was in really good condition.
