The New Zealand golfer, Michael Campbell, has missed the cut at the Bay Hill Invitational in Florida.

Campbell carded a second round 76, a one shot improvement on his first round score, and missed the cut by 8 strokes.

It was his first tournament since suffering a shoulder injury last October.

The world number one, Tiger Woods, is still in the hunt, tied for 10th - he mixed three birdies with two bogeys to finish day 2 five shots behind pacesetter, American Sean O'Hair, who's 8 under par.

Woods is playing only his third event of the year.

He was sidelined by a knee injury for eight months.

The overnight leader, Jason Gore, is in second on 5 under par, and British Open champion Padraig Harrington, playing with Woods for the second day in a row, carded a 68 to vault into a tie for sixth at two under, six shots behind O'Hair.
