Brits still misfiring in run-up to Masters

Britain’s best hope Justin Rose is slipping down the world rankings, now in tenth positon, having missed the cut at the Valspar Championship he has now missed three of the last four cuts, he has not troubled the top of any of the leaderboards all season.

In a year he will be looking to win a major again, after such a strong season last time out, this is not ideal preparation for the masters which is just three weeks away now, a tournament in which he can really move up the world rankings and cement his place at Rio next year for Team GB.

Another Team GB hopeful, Welshman Jamie Donaldson also did not make the cut this weekend for the first time this season.

At the other end of the spectrum, Brian Davis had his highest placed tournament of the season, tied tenth, having lead after the first day with a round of six-under.

But a horrid back nine on the second day consisting of six bogeys meant he plummeted down the leaderboard, which meant he would have to have a very good weekend if he was to stand any chance of going back to the summit.

Unfortunately he did not put in the required rounds to make up the distance the front runners had put between themselves and Davis by then and finished tenth in the tournament.

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is next up for the boys on the PGA Tour,  a hugely prestigious tournament that the players will be giving their all in their attempts to win and gain some places in the world rankings.

Aiming to put themselves in good form also with only three weeks to go to the first major of the year at Augusta.
