Donald unlikely to make BMW PGA cut

Two-time BMW PGA Championship winner Luke Donald looks unlikely to make the cut of this year&aposs event after a disappointing second round. The world number six, the defending champion, failed to recover from a poor start on Friday, hitting a par round of 72 following his six-over-par 78 on the opening day. Donald&aposs round got off to a difficult opening when he double bogeyed on the second hole, before bogeying again on the third to leave himself with a mountain to climb. Birdies on holes four and eight restored some hope, but despite three birdies on the back nine he was unable to improve his overall position and will likely not be in action over the weekend. The Englishman was quick to bemoan his showing, but felt the inclement weather conditions at Wentworth had an affect on his game. “I think the last couple of years it's been very warm and balls travelled a lot,” he told Sky Sports. “I&aposm hitting a lot longer irons into some of these holes this year because of the weather, but the bottom line is I didn&apost play very well. “Nine over through 21 holes is pretty terrible golf really.” Compatriot Ian Poulter is also not expected to make the cut. The world number 17 finished eight over par after scoring 76 for the second consecutive round.
