Graeme McDowell failed to qualify for next month’s US Open, a year after his 10-year exemption expired for winning the major in 2010.
The 41-year-old Northern Irishman didn’t complete the second qualifying round in Dallas when it became clear he wouldn’t get one of the 10 spots.
An open of 70 left him at a level of four under the final qualifying mark.
German amateur Matthias Schmid and American amateur Matthew Sharpstene led the qualifiers with nine pennies.
Peru’s Luis Fernando Barco won the last qualifying place with four under after winning a 10-man play-off.
McDowell, who was also fourth in the world rankings seven months after winning the US Open at Pebble Beach, is now ranked 147th after struggling for form since returning to the sport after the opening lockdown last year.
Before the first lockout, the Northern Irishman had returned to the top 50 in the world by winning the Saudi International.
Her best performance this year is a share of fourth place at the PGA Tour Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in the Dominican Republic at the end of March, held the same week as the WGC Matchplay event in Texas.
The US Open will be held June 17-20 in Torrey Pines, California.
