A much better day of 1 under 69 for G-Mac with birdies on the Hole 4 and 17, the one blemish was a bogey on the 11th. This wasn’t enough to make the weekend but when the consistency returns Graeme hopefully will be back well up the leaderboard.

Graeme had a horror day on the par-threes at PGA National as he started the Honda Classic with a round to forget in Palm Beach Gardens in Florida.

The Rathmore man recorded a quadruple-bogey, a double-bogey and two bogeys to finish a combined seven-over-par on the four shortest holes on his way to a nine-over-par round overall that leaves him needing to do some work to make the weekend.

Graeme had started well, birdieing his opening hole, the 10th, and the 12th either side of a bogey at 11, but the quadruple-bogey came at the 15th and then the double followed on 17.

Although the World No.117 birdied the par-five 18th, that was to be his last of the day as he dropped four shots after the turn to end well off the pace and needing a big day to avoid a fifth missed cut in six events this year.
