WILTSHIRE'S Jordan Smith endured a disappointing US Open debut after missing the cut at Torrey Pines by three shots last weekend.

An opening round of 77 did the majority of the damage for the 28-year-old, and Smith was unable to post a low enough score in his second round to make it through to the weekend on four-over par or lower.

Spain's Jon Rahm went on to lift the trophy, ending with back-to-back birdies on his 71st and 72nd holes to finish on six-under for the tournament and claim his first major.

Smith's wait for a first major goes on however, after a tough first round on Thursday - which was initially disrupted by heavy fog on the coastline course in California - saw the Bowood Golf Club member register seven bogeys and just the solitary birdie.

The 28-year-old kicked off his opening round in relatively serene fashion, carding three pars in a row before the trouble began.

Smith's next five holes read; bogey, bogey, par, bogey, bogey, as his putter remained stone cold and the three-putts flowed all too regularly.

An errant tee shot on the par-three 11th threatened to put Smith in more trouble, yet a superb bunker shot allowed the Chippenham man a realistic chance to make par - an opportunity he took as his eight foot putt rolled in on the left edge of the hole.

However, the smile didn't last long for the Wiltshireman as three further bogeys occurred in Smith's next four holes.

The 28-year-old - who is now 65th in the European Tour's Race to Dubai rankings - managed a birdie on his closing hole as his quest for some positive momentum began.

Unfortunately, while Smith's second round featured four birdies in total, five more bogeys meant the Chippenham golfer headed home early from the third major of the year.
