Andrew Marshall's poor run of form on the European Tour continued yesterday when he missed yet another cut, this time in the Wales Open.

The Norfolk professional faced an uphill task after opening up with a three over par round of 72 on Thursday - and despite firing a second round 67 at Celtic Manor yesterday, it wasn't enough to repair the damage.

Starting at the 10th, Marshall opened up with eight straight pars before grabbing a birdie three at the 18th to move back to two over par for the tournament and to within two shots of the projected cut mark.

But a bogey at the next put him back to square one. A birdie on the fourth hole -Marshall's 13th - pulled him back on course and another at the sixth raised his hopes further. He finished off with three pars for a two-under par 67, but his total of 139 was not enough to make the cut.
