Among those who missed qualifying was young American star Jordan Spieth, who lives nearby and played the course dozens of times as a junior. He was on the verge of qualifying, but put two balls in the water on the par-3 17th hole, taking a 7 and sinking his chances for his first Open Championship.

"It's very disappointing, it stinks," he said.

Former Masters champion Trevor Immelman missed with scores of 68-73-141 as did former Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, 70-72-142, who put a streak of 26 straight Open Championship appearances in danger.

"There are still some chances for me to get in the Open," Love said, "but I want that streak to continue. I want to keep playing."
