2020 PGA Championship: Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia among stars to miss at TPC Harding Park


The difference between playing on the weekend in a major league and watching at home can be decided by an accidental hit of the putter, as Rickie Fowler excruciatingly learned on Friday. Fowler missed the cup at the 2020 PGA Championship in one fell swoop on Friday and he has only himself to blame after a blunder at No.6 that caused him to miss a start time on the weekend, breaking a personal streak of 14 consecutive cuts. made at the majors.

He’s one of the biggest stars not to play on weekends at TPC Harding Park for the first and only major championship of the 2019-20 season, but he’s definitely not alone. In fact, he is one of 12 top 50 golfers in the Official Golf World Rankings – including Tyrrell Hatton, Marc Leishman and Matt Kuchar – to miss the cut line 1 in 141.

The chopping block was just as bad for a number of former PGA Championship winners. As Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson enjoy a few more laps under sunny California skies, former champions Jimmy Walker, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Martin Kaymer, Davis Love III, Shaun Michael and Rich Beem also missed the Cup. Among the former champions, Kaymer’s is perhaps the most shocking after starting his round on Friday in T3. He shot a par 82 of 12 on Friday.

Here’s a look at some of the other big names on tour who are joining Fowler on the sidelines, along with their respective scores.
