Dylan Frittelli failed to hang on to a very promising position early in his round as he tumbled down the leaderboard on Sunday at Royal Portrush.
The John Deere Classic winner was hovering at the bottom of the first page early into his final round after wiping out his bogey at the third with a birdie at the fifth.
As the inclement weather rolled into Portrush, the late starters scores started to rise which left Frittelli well placed to ensure his best ever Major finish. Instead, he was part of the masses to see his score balloon in the wind.
A front nine 38 was marred by bogeys shortly before the close. He offset his bogey at 11 with his second and final birdie of the day at the next before five bogeys in his next six holes saw him drop 20 places down to 32nd place alongside Ernie Els.
As the latest South African on the course, his round handed top performing SA honours to Louis Oosthuizen and Erik van Rooyen, who sit in T20.
