PADRAIG Harrington and Graeme McDowell both missed the cut at the Northern Trust Open in California overnight.

South Korean Sang-moon Bae and Swede Fredrik Jacobson shared the lead at the halfway stage of the event.


McDowell carded a one-over-par 73 to lie on three over, one adrift of the cut.


Harrington did most of the damage in a first-round 77 and today’s 71 left him on six over.


World number three Luke Donald put himself firmly in contention. Playing his first tournament since November, he produced a five-under 66 to sit seven under overall, two off the leading pair on nine under.


Donald, 18th overnight, carded seven birdies against two bogeys to end day two fifth — and he could have been in a share of third alongside Americans John Merrick and John Rollins but for a dropped shot on his penultimate hole, the par-four eighth.


Donald told “Happy with my score, obviously coming off a pretty good break, you never know with how you’re going to deal with being back in competition again but certainly a big improvement today, ball striking wise and my short game has been very sharp.


“I’ve been excited about that. It’s been a big key to my score so far, and, yeah, excited to be in the mix again.”


On the top of the pile though were Jacobson and Bae, both of whom were six under for the day to climb from sixth to joint first.


Other big names to miss the cut included Dustin Johnson, Mike Weir, Zach Johnson, Geoff Ogilvy, Bubba Watson and Lucas Glover.
