SHANE LOWRY IS in danger of missing the cut at Houston Open on Friday after a nightmare start which included a double-bogey and a triple-bogey in his first nine.

Weather delays interrupted the play at Houston, meaning only around half of the field completed their second round on Friday.

The Clara native struggled to a three-over par round of 73 and dropped to two-over, with the mark for the weekend cut likely to be at +1 or better.

Seamus Power also missed the cut on five-over par, his level-par 70 on Friday not enough to make up for Thursday’s slow start.

Graeme McDowell was among the afternoon starters in the second round and is on one-over through 12 holes before the weather brought his round to a halt.

Martin Trainer leads after carding a five-under 65 to leave him on 10-under, one shot clear of Kevin Tway who is in turn one shot ahead of Jason Kokrak.

Jonathan Caldwell is three shots further back on six-under par.
