Luke Donald missed another cut following a disappointing first two days at the Canadian Open, as his dip in form continues.

The Englishman carded a one-over-par round of 73 on day one at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Ontario and although he improved on day two, Donald will not be playing the weekend.

A second round of 71 on Friday left the 35-year-old on level par after 36 holes, which saw him miss the halfway cut by one shot.

The latest setback will be another dent in the confidence of the world number nine in the run up to the fourth major of the year – the USPGA Championship.

Donald has now missed four cuts this year and has just three top-ten finishes to his name, having played in 13 tournaments across both the US and European Tours.

The Ryder Cup star will head to Oak Hill in two weeks looking to win his first major title, but the signs do not look good for Donald, who has twice finished in the top ten at the USPGA Championship.

There was better news though for Graeme McDowell, who bounced back from a shocking round of 76 on day one in Canada to make the cut.

A superb 65 on Friday has kept the Northern Irishman in contention to challenge this weekend, although he remains ten shots behind the halfway leader, Hunter Mahan.
