Four dropped shots in the last four holes cost Waterford's Eanna Griffin his chance of making the cut in the South Beach International in Miami.

One of six new names on the 2016 Irish senior panel, Griffin began the day on three over after an opening 73 at Normandy Shores but a six over 77 at Miami Beach Golf Club saw him miss the halfway cut by three strokes. 


Griffin began his second round  with a birdie four but then bogeyed the second, third, fourth and seventh.

He birdied the 12th to move a shot inside the cut line at five over but a bogey at the 15th followed by a double bogey six at the 16th and another dropped shot at the last saw him miss out on six over par.

American Philip Barbaree (68-69) leads by one stroke on four under par from compatriots JHoshue Lee and Sarosh Adi while England's Sam Horsfield, who withdrew from the GB&I Walker Cup team for personal reasons. is just two behind in tied fourth after a 69 at Miami Beach Golf Club -
