SSP Chowrasia and Jeev Milkha Singh crashed out at the halfway stage, as the pair missed the cut at the KLM Open on Friday in Amsterdam.
Chowrasia, a two-time winner on European Tour, carded 69 in the second round, but still missed the cut by as it fell at one-under 139. Jeev carded 71 and 70 and missed the cut by two.
Fellow Spaniards Miguel Angel Jimenez and Pablo Larrazabal took a one-shot lead into the weekend as they aim to emulate Seve Spaniards Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal by winning at Kennemer Golf and Country Club.
Simon Dyson (63) and Oliver Fisher (65) and Frenchman Julien Quesne (65), who all climbed to eight under par are tied for third place.
Dyson is aiming to claim a record fourth KLM Open title, whilst Fisher - celebrating his 25th birthday - is in need of a big week as he bids to retain his playing privileges on The European Tour.
