Filipino Juvic Pagunsan ended his first appearance in a Major tournament with a five-over-par 75, finishing in the bottom of the field that made it to the weekend of the British Open.
The Asian Tour's reigning Order of Merit topnotcher finished at 11-over 291, his total ballooning after a faltering finish to his final round at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.
The 34-year-old was in the middle of the pack after making the turn at one-over 35, but he bogeyed four of his last seven holes -- including the dificult 18th which he bogeyed for the third time in four days.
Still, Pagunsan earned the distinction as the first Filipino to make the cut at The Open and later said he will return home with a lot of good memories of his Major debut.
“It’s a good experience. First time on a links course and some good memories already. I love to play here. It’s totally different from home. The weather is different, the grass is different, the bunkers are different. Everything is different,” he told asiantour.com.
