Australian duo Jason Day and Adam Scott offered no excuses after missing the cut at the PGA Tour’s team event in New Orleans. The two former world number ones have teamed up for the first time since the Presidents Cup in 2015 following a request from International team captain Ernie Els ahead of this year’s edition of the biennial event.

The pair missed the cut at the Zurich Classic after an even-par 72 second round however, and both players were disappointed with the early exit. “It was hard. There’s no excuses. We did have the tougher side of the draw but there’s no excuses,” Day told pgatour.com.
“We just needed to come out and play well, and unfortunately I think we just didn’t have the momentum going.” Scott said: “We missed greens from the fairway and then our short games were under pressure. “It’s tough to get a rhythm going, and we were grinding hard and didn’t quite get it going.” The 2019 Presidents Cup will be held at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia in December.
