First major as a pro a tough one for Australian Bryden Macpherson, shoots 90-80

Bryden Macpherson finished his second and last round of this British Open 32 shots off the lead, and with a smile on his face.

He was never going to make the cut after opening his first major as a professional with an 18-over-par 90.

His start on Friday wasn't encouraging either — he bogeyed his first four holes.

But after a double bogey on the 18th to finish, the Australian said, "I enjoyed every moment of it, as much as you could.

"You go out there and you try and take in the experience for what it is, instead of what you want it to be."

Macpherson qualified for the British Open by finishing tied for fourth at the 2013 Australian Open.

He won the 2011 British Amateur.
