Shubhankar misses the cut

Shubhankar Sharma exited at the halfway stage of his maiden Masters, but insists he has learnt enough to come back and make a mark in the future.

Playing way better than the first day, Shubhankar did a good job despite the strong breeze that made things difficult on Friday at the Augusta National Golf Club.

His two-over 74 got him a total of seven-over 151 and left him way off the cutline that fell at five-over.

Talking about his Masters experience, Shubhankar said: "It has been fantastic. I missed the cut but I thought I played pretty good, just didn't finish the way I wanted to yesterday. But this experience is invaluable. Just can't wait to get back every year after this and I'll do my best and I know I'll have to play my best to get here every year, but it has been a fantastic experience. The course has been in superb condition, the crowds have been great and it's just a pleasure to play in front of them."

Despite missing the cut, Shubhankar plans to stay on for next two days, before heading to his next event in Texas. "I am going to stay on enjoy the week. I have learnt a lot and I will surely be back."

Starting the day 5-over and needing a sub-par or at least a par round, as it turned out, to ensure weekend action, Shubhankar never found the momentum he needed to bring in a low score. "On this course, you need a few birdies to start with. I had the chance on the  first day and again on second, but did not quite hole them. But, I was happy with my driving," said Shubhankar.
