Two weeks after enjoying the perks of a US Open champion, from dining with the prime minister to watching the Wimbledon men’s final from the Royal Box, Justin Rose led a parade of stars exiting the British Open.
Rose shot a 6-over 77 Friday to finish with a two-day total of 152, missing the cut by two strokes. He was joined by several former major winners, including Rory McIlroy and Jim Furyk, as well as a few others, like Luke Donald, Matteo Manassero and Nick Watney, ranked among the top 30 players in the world.
‘‘Golf humbles you all the time,’’ said Rose, No. 3 in the ranking.
The last U.S. Open champion to miss the cut at the British was Lucas Glover in 2009. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
