Paul Lawrie was left to rue his lack of success on the greens, claiming "putting like an idiot" cost him a chance to challenge for the championship.
The 1999 champion followed up his third round 76 with a 72 to finish four over for the tournament.
Heading into the weekend the Scot was amongst the pack chasing leader Adam Scott but poor displays with the putter cost the 43-year-old.
He said: "I played nicely and just putted like an idiot again. Thursday I putted beautifully, so it's just a bit weird.
"I just holed nothing out there, it is so disappointing. I think frustrated would be an understatement.
"I think I've hit the ball this week, not as good as I can, but extremely well.
"Had I been top-10 this week, I think it would have been fair enough."
