Dubai, Jan 28 (PTI) A fighting Shubhankar Sharma failed to make the cut after falling short by one stroke at the weather-hit Hero Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament here on Saturday.

After not being able to hit a single shot on the opening day, Sharma played 21 holes on Friday and another 15 on Saturday, but he missed a 3-footer for par on his 36th hole at the Emirates Golf Club to miss the cut.

"That's golf. But I will take some positives as I was Top-10 and played well last week in Abu Dhabi and here I played well in spells," said Sharma, now in his 11th year as a pro.
