In a galaxy far, far away, there was a small group of talented and dedicated men trying to fight for their survival battling a golf course that was unrelenting at best. Day 2 at The Masters, Augusta National Golf Course proved to be that course! I am not sure what happened yesterday, but Augusta bared its teeth and took a huge bite out many of the worlds best golfers.
Yesterday, there were only 4 rounds under par. The best score was a 71 and not surprisingly, it was not by Jordan Spieth. The average score of the players who made the cut on Tuesday was 73.73, it was a tough day at Augusta National.
There are seven players under par overall, but of those, how many really have a chance to win? Well actually, they all do! However, the odds will be in Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy’s favour, but I would not count to Danny Willett and Sergio Garcia! It is very difficult to pick who is going to edge their way to the top of the leaderboard on ‘Moving Day’, but maybe holding ground may be the best strategy of all.
One of the greater moments for golf was the last round of golf at the Masters by Tom Watson! I could go on and on about Tom Watson’s accomplishments and what he meant to Augusta National, but this video of his play yesterday sums it up.
Today is ‘Moving Day’! I believe it is going to be an exciting time on the links. I am not sure who is going to dominate or who will be roughed up, but one thing I know for sure, it will be entertaining!
I am a grateful golfer! Bring on ‘Moving Day’!
