Alfred Dunhill Championship: Oosthuizen’s shock exit as Hoey survives the cut

Finish ahead of the Open champion and you'd reckon on having a really good round of golf — unless it was yesterday and your name was Damien McGrane or Michael Hoey.

True, both players did score better than Louis Oosthuizen, winner of the Open at St Andrews but yesterday he slumped out of the Alfred Dunhill championship at Leopard Creek when his second round 71 wasn't good enough to keep him in the tournament.

A 147 total left the champion on the wrong side of the cut which came at 146.

McGrane's 73 for 145 earned him the right to play the weekend, while Michael Hoey survived, shooting 74 for 146.

Gary Murphy and Jonathan Caldwell made their exit on 147 (74,73) and 156 (77, 79) respectively.
