Matt Wallace’s debut appearance at the Masters ended in disappointment after he missed the cut at Augusta.

A three-over-par first round of 75 had left the Moor Park Golf Club honorary member, who won Wednesday's par-three competition, in need of an upturn in fortunes to ensure he would make the weekend at the first major of the year.

Despite starting his second round with a bogey five at the first, Wallace responded with birdies at the two front par five holes on the front nine – the second and eighth – to get his round moving in the right direction.

However, the world number 36’s hopes were to fade at the turn as he dropped three shots in four holes, with bogey fives at nine and 10 before a double bogey six at the 11th.

Two more dropped shots at the par four 14th and 18th holes saw Wallace, who turned 29 yesterday, finish on eight-over-par, five shots beyond the plus-three cut line.

The second round ended with five players – Jason Day, Brooks Kopeka, Francesco Molinari, Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott – in a share of the lead at seven-under-par.
