Wow, the action was incredible and as a result the leaderboard is jammed-packed with Major winners. With 5 players tied at 7 under and 4 more at 6 under, moving day will take on a whole new meaning. With the cut set at +3, 65 players will vie for the green jacket on Saturday and Sunday. In the past, I would say that only a few players have a chance to win, but not this year. Day 2 proved that anyone has a chance to make a move into contention and many did!
Who would have thought that during a rain-delayed round that there would be a -7, -6 and two -5 rounds. Is it possible that Schauffele, Oosthuizen, Day and Molinari peaked too early and thought Friday was moving day? They were solid as a rock and will be watched through both days of the weekend.
Adam Scott and Tiger Woods shot -4 and garnered most of the media hype. Scott went as low as -8, which instilled fear of making the cut with the 9 players at +3, but alas, a bogey on 16 put that fear aside. A funny thing is that Jordan Spieth also shot a -4 and was barely noticed. With so many players at the top of the leaderboard, Spieth will have to finish higher than 6 strokes back to make any headlines.
The second day was not without some bizarre moments:
Yesterday was one of the best ‘second day’ at The Masters in a very long time. There was some great action and some comical relief. Most of the top players showed up and are in the mix. There was so much action, it is hard to focus on one area.
Before I sign off, I have to mention Tiger Woods. A favourite of Josh from Golf is Mental, Tiger Woods looked like the champion of old. He is sitting one stroke back and will play in the better conditions tomorrow afternoon. If Tiger can get control of his putting within 6 feet, I think he might donning his 5th green jacket!
How did you enjoy the action yesterday?
