Padraig Harrington saw his Masters hopes disappear on a frustrating final day at Augusta.
Harrington did not hole nearly enough putts to challenge
Resuming his storm-delayed third round at three under on Sunday, he was only two off the lead through 12 when his game fell apart.
Five shots went over the next four holes to leave the 34-year-old Irishman on two over par after the third round.
The rot continued for much of the final round until a birdie-birdie finish helped him to a 74, a four-over total.
Harrington was not the only European star to struggle at Augusta.
A birdie at his final hole was too little, too late for a disappointing Sergio Garcia.
The 26-year-old holed a 20ft putt for birdie to sign off with a 73, good enough for a 10-over-par total of 298.
At sixth in the world, the Spaniard is the best-ranked European but continues to flatter to deceive on the big stage.
But there was better news for Thomas Bjorn. The Dane posted his best round of the week, a 69, to improve to five over for the tournament.
