"Jordan had a pretty strong finish there", McIlroy said.
Sure, there are a few outliers in the group, including a pair of 41-year-olds, Henrik Stenson and Charley Hoffman. Golfbreaks.com can build the ideal package for you including accommodation, flights, auto hire, Masters badges and local golf, so make your Masters dreams a reality.
He was over the green on the 240-yard fourth and then missed a 7-footer for par.
"It's not always the birdies that stick out in your mind", McIlroy said, calling those shots the highlights of his round. They blew themselves out of the tournament with sloppy second rounds, and they now sit 13 and 14 shots back, respectively. I just stepped up and hit it. "So, yeah, they were huge".
Rory McIlroy gave his quest for a career grand slam a boost by grabbing a share of the second round clubhouse lead at the U.S. Masters yesterday while former champion Tiger Woods was flirting with the cutline.
"With the weather conditions (expected)", Leishman said, "we're gonna have to worry about ourselves and not what everyone else is doing". "I'm not surprised about (Spieth) at all". He plays well around here. Then he went out and beat Spieth.
Mickelson was motoring along nicely at two-under for the tournament until he came to a screeching halt with a triple-bogey wreck at the par-four ninth, where his second shot from the woods clattered against a tree and ricocheted into a bush. Those two are capable of putting together scintillating rounds and joining the leaders.
"I am from Texas", he said. "I'm so far back".
Only two players have come back from seven shots behind after the opening round to capture the green jacket. Woods played exactly like someone who hadn't played at the Masters because of injury since 2015.
"It was me", Woods admitted.
Ridley strongly hinted at pending changes by saying: "Our observation of these great players hitting middle and even short irons into that hole is not a momentous decision".
Reed, chasing his first major title, has a two-shot lead over Australian Marc Leishman on nine-under-par after the second round at the iconic venue.
"I also feel like I'm in a better frame of my golf game and kind of mentally coming in". Johnson's inconsistency in the first round was not on display in the second round as he grew more confident with each hole he played. "It was probably the quickest shot I hit today, which is weird". "Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it didn't want to".
Garcia ended up with an octuplet-bogey 13 that was the highest score posted by any player ever on the hole.
Favourable late scoring saw the likes of Dustin Johnson (-4) and Justin Thomas (-5) also make their move, with the duo in a tie for sixth at three under.
Rickie Fowler was 2 under, and Justin Rose was at even-par. That he's back again and given himself yet another opportunity to win here is shaping up as one of the more compelling storylines of weekend play, but make no mistake: These golfers may not actually carry their own clubs around the pristine Augusta course, but metaphorically speaking, no one is carrying a heavier bag than McIlroy.
