WARRNAMBOOL'S Marc Leishman quest for his first major win continues after he failed to make the cut at the USPGA Championship on Saturday.
The 36-year-old was cut after the second round of the first major tournament of the year after firing even and two-over rounds at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.
Starting on the back nine, Leishman hit two consecutive bogeys on the par-4 12th and 13th before fighting back with two birdies on the par-4 16th and 18th.

On his final nine holes he only managed one birdie on the par-4 seventh but added three more birdies to his round on the par-4 first, par-3 eighth and par-4 ninth.
Fellow Australians Lucas Herbert and Matt Jones also failed to make the cut.
Heading into Monday's final round American Justin Thomas (nine-under) leads by one shot to countrymen Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Champ.
Three Australians are still in the draw with former winner Jason Day (six-under tied for seventh) the highest.
Adam Scott (two-under tied for 30th) and Cameron Smith (even tied for 43rd) are further back in the field.
