Ahead of the week at Hamilton, Sahith Theegala was just behind Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood in the oddsmakers' list to lift the title this week. However, the start proved to be a nightmare as he carded a 4 over par 74 that included back-to-back double bogeys on the 14th and 15th hole.

Theegala had a better round on Friday but 1-over 71 wasn't good enough to make it to the weekend.


2) Shane Lowry

3) Nick Taylor
