JUSTIN Rose’s chances of winning his second US Open were dashed as he missed the cut in Erin Hills.

This is the second year running that the Englishman has suffered this fate, in a tournament he won in 2013.

The former Robert May’s School pupil was one shot short of taking part in the final two rounds at Wisconsin.

Rose opened on Thursday with a par round of 72, hitting two birdies and two bogeys in his opening nine holes.

Another birdie on hole 12 moved him to one under, but a bogey at the last, saw him finish on level par.

In round two which started at hole 10 he made a birdie, but then dropped a shot at the 13th.

Two holes later, he holed another birdie, but disaster struck with a double bogey at 17.

This was followed by a birdie on 18, which saw him back to par.

Rose hit a birdie to start the second half of his round, but then suffered drop shots at holes three and four.

After a birdie at seven, he looked set to make the cut, but bogeys on holes eight and nine sealed his fate, with a two over round of 74.

Brian Harman is the leader going into today’s final round on 12 under.
