Harrington misses PGA cut

Sheboygan - Padraig Harrington spent two days fighting to get back to even par at the US PGA Championship, hopeful of having the weekend to
state his case for making the Europe Ryder Cup team.

It all fell apart in one hole at the end.

From the middle of the 18th fairway, Harrington chunked a hybrid 4-iron into a water hazard that shouldn't even come into play, making a double bogey to miss the cut at Whistling Straits.

Harrington, who only two years ago became the first European with successive majors in the same season, headed home after missing the cut in a major for the third time this year.

The Irishman has no tournaments left to earn points toward making the Ryder Cup team, and must rely on Colin Montgomerie taking him as a captain's pick.
