"Seventy-three is fine", Woods said. With the way the back nine was playing today, the wheels could have come off there. Get previews, recaps, picks, awards and more!
Playing in his first masterssince 2015, he had a shaky time and hit a number of poor shots in a round watched by his mother, Kultida, and girlfriend Erica.
The second round of the Masters Championship featured a lot of movement and a new leader. It was a disappointing round for Spieth, who opened double-bogey-bogey to hand back the lead he'd gained in round 1. I can just be relaxed going on to the first tee, not being too concerned about trying to get those birdies back.
"I know what I need to do, I'm just not doing it", said Woods, who was playing just his 20th round of the year on Friday and making just his 10th start in the last three years this week.
He didn't, but Reed has plenty of company. That's 14 major trophies chasing zero at the top of the board. "I'm incredibly thankful to have this opportunity to play golf again". I've been hitting that shot well on the range and I thought it was a prime opportunity to give it a test.
Woods showed some experience after that torrid hole, putting together back-to-back pars at the next two and giving himself a chance of getting a shot back after a sublime lob approach.
The poor round left Woods, competing in his first major since 2015, just one shot above the cut-line but a distant 13 shots back of world number 24 Reed, who is hoping to pen a comeback of his own after missing the cut past year. Even better: Since no other amateurs made the cut, I will also be low amateur come Sunday.
Spieth shot a 2-over 74 in Round 2 to fall to 4 under for the tournament. The swings are furious and the falls unforgiving. He will be in the final pairing today with Reed, scheduled to go off at 2:30 p.m. "Play smart golf, play from the fairway".
"When I was walking up (to the green), I'm like, 'Man, that was a really, really hard shot to pull off, ' and I don't know why - I didn't have any nerves". Others hit it high enough to soar over the trees to the left of the fairway. He broke 70 in the first round at Augusta National for the first time since 2011. It's going to go into the water if it doesn't hit the hole. Those are the moments, ultimately, that define major champs. "It blows 40 and rains every day it seems like".
Given the potential for bad weather, McIroy was glad to be at 4-under through two rounds. That doesn't engender a ton of confidence.
Most players (right-handers) aim for the trees on the right and try to hit a sharp draw.
Caldwell, an avid golfer, has few things on his list he's yet to accomplish, but with the help of his stepdaughter, Jordan, one of those dreams came true Masters Thursday. Let's see if we can get it in 18 holes tomorrow. And Spieth, in the mix for another green jacket. Or a Grand Slam victor.
One more solid round and he might have predicted his own future.
Tiger Woods has plenty of work to do. That's a very on-brand move for Reed, who fancies himself the best player in the field, if not the world.
It could have been better, as mostgolf rounds tend to be. His iron play and swaggering, finger-wagging persona is built seemingly only for the biggest of events. But the way he regained his mastery of it here was indicative of his mindset as he went round in 68, three under for the tournament.
In a sense, those divergent paths were the flawless analogy for where Woods is at this stage of his career.
