James Gill misses place in Open

6:26 am on 8 July 2009

The first year New Zealand golf pro James Gill has missed out on a place in the field for next week's British Open at Turnberry.

Gill was tied for second after an opening round of 69 in his final qualifying event near Glasgow, but he blew out to a second round of 76.

But there will be five New Zealanders teeing off at the Open next Thursday night.
