What's wrong with McGinley?
The big question these days appears to be: What’s wrong with Padraig Harrington? But what about Paul McGinley, who turned a promising (possibly tournament winning) start in the BMW International Open into his fifth missed cut of the European Tour season.
Now 42, McGinley has shown few sparkles of brilliance over the past two years and is ranked 188th in the world behind every other Irish tour player bar Gary Murphy (431st) and rookie Jonny Caldwell (1,093rd).
It would appear that his lack of driving accuracy is killing him, as we explain later.
Shane Lowry is 168th in the world thanks to his shock Irish Open win as an amateur just over a month ago but he’s still waiting to earn his first euro with his clubs after missing the cut for the third time in a row.
