Lyle being cold shouldered ?

Sandy Lyle feels he is being cold-shouldered by sponsors on the US Tour and pleaded for a chance to prove that he can still be a force before taking his place in the Honda Classic in Fort Lauderdale.

Lyle's 10-year exemption after winning the 1988 Masters has run out. But he expected a good finish in the recent Tucson Open to bring further invitations.

But it didn't, with two of the four wild cards going to Gary Nicklaus and Robert Floyd. Lyle said: "It seems the sons of great players are rated higher than an Open and Masters winner."
