MARC Leishman's horror opening round at The Northern Trust tournament in Jersey City has come back to bite him harshly.
The 35-year-old failed to make the second-round cut on Friday night (AEST) after shooting an even round of 71 to remain two-over after his 36 holes.
A day earlier the world number 22 fired a two-over round that included two bogeys and a triple bogey.
The Warrnambool export didn't go without a fight, firing four birdies across his final 18 holes at the FedEx Cup event at Liberty National.
But his final round of the weekend was littered with four bogeys, including three in a row from the eighth to the 10th.
Jason Day was also cut while Adam Scott and Matt Jones are the best placed Australians in the field tied for 17th at seven-under.
American Patrick Reed (14-under) is holding a slim lead ahead of Mexico's Abraham Ancer (13 under) with one round to play.
