Poor third rounds put paid to the Vic Open chances of Bendigo golfers Lucas Herbert and Andrew Martin.
Both players missed out on playing Sunday’s final round after slipping down the leaderboard on day three.
Herbert went into Saturday’s third round at 10-under par and in contention to win his first professional title.
Four holes into the third round his title dreams had been swept away by the strong winds at 13th Beach Golf Club in Barwon Heads.
Herbert made bogeys on his first four holes on Saturday and he slipped down the leaderboard.
The world number 75 tried hard to work his way back into the tournament, but on a tough scoring day he eventually signed for a four-over 76.
At six-under par and in a tied for 37th, Herbert was one shot outside the cut mark after three rounds.
Martin was tied for 68th at two-under par.
After just making the halfway cut on Friday night, Martin shot a three-over par 75 on Saturday.
He started his third round on the 10th hole and was two-under through nine holes, but he dropped five shots in seven holes on the front nine.
Scotsman David Law won the tournament after making an eagle on the par-five 18th on Sunday.
Law finished at 18-under and won by one shot from Australian pair Wade Ormsby and Brad Kennedy.
