BENDIGO golfers Andrew Martin and Heath Reed have missed the cut at the Australian Open at The Lakes course in Sydney.
Martin scored three-over in yesterday’s play, which followed an opening round of five-over.
The cut was four-over.
Reed, who previously played at Marong and Eaglehawk, struggled on both days.
Reed carded a seven-over par yesterday after a five-over from the first round.
Reed began steadily after teeing-off at the 10th, carding all pars with a solitary bogey – on the par-three 15th – in his opening nine holes on the back nine.
But the now Queensland-based golfer struck trouble almost immediately on the front nine, with bogeys at the 2nd, 4th and 9th and triple-bogey on the par-four sixth.
Reed must now look to the PGA Championships at Coolum next week for a good result if he is to keep his tour card for next year.
