Allenby was on the way to perhaps a top 15 PGA finish, standing 2-under through 13 holes Sunday and staring down a makable birdie putt on No. 14. That’s when things changed.

Allenby made bogeys on the 15th, 17th and 18th holes to fall to 1-over, tied for 26th. Still, that’s better than six players ahead of Allenby in the standings who failed to make the PGA cut. Allenby says he’ll have chances to improve his status before the BMW Championships end Sept. 18. Then Norman’s picks come eight days later.

“All I’ve got to do is focus on playing golf,” he said. “Hopefully, that’ll take care of it.”


DIVOTS: U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III was at 1-under par and in contention after 36 holes, then went 76-79 on the weekend. Love had wanted a strong showing to bolster his chances of earning a spot on the 2012 team he’ll lead. He entered the PGA eighth in U.S. Ryder Cup points. … Shaun Micheel went from third place with a 66 on Thursday to last among the weekend starters after going 78-77-74. … The PGA’s lone remaining club professional, Mike Small, struggled down the stretch with bogeys or higher on seven of his final eight holes. He finished at 12-over, behind everyone except Paul Casey, Davis Love III, Micheel and Rory Sabbatini.
