What's the cut rule at the Masters? Some big-name players in danger of missing it

He will need some more help from the golfing gods on Sunday.

"And getting up there on the leaderboards in majors, I'm guessing that comes before winning one, most of the time". He excused it as typical "punches" from a daunting golf course in hard conditions.

Umbrellas were out early at the golf course with light, intermittent rain falling. "I'm hitting so many good putts". "They are fierce competitors and maybe the rest of us can put a few numbers up there and sneak up on them".

Caddie: That's two pounds over a six-mile hike, so it adds up. Then you only have one other hand to do everything else. In my spare time I play golf and Ultimate frisbee, dabble in photography and make my vehicle less comfortable on the street just so that it'll be quicker at the track. "But it's just frustrating being out there when you know you don't have a chance".

Following each roar, more and more heads started to look away from the shots being played right in front of them as gazes were directed to the large manual scoreboards placed on certain holes. They tee off at 2:40 p.m. The shot would have rolled well past the hole, but it hit the stick and dropped in for a 3. In 2016, victor Danny Willett trailed the leader by 4 shots after two rounds. "With the way the back nine was playing today, the wheels could have come off there".

Collins: Which for a caddie is terrifying. "And missed the putt, but, hey, it's a lot easier to play the hole from the green than it is dropping".

They played some brand of golf Saturday. You can put it either way.

Phil Mickelson lines up his putt on six during the second round of the Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., Friday, April 6, 2018.

After three top-12 finishes this year, Woods had climbed to 103rd in the rankings heading into the Masters.

Collins: When you're on the course and see a guy making a insane run up the leaderboard, what's that like here?

What would it take to shoot two rounds in the 60s after playing so poorly? Growing up surrounded by cars, I knew that whatever I did as an adult, it had to involve them.

Well, it's nearly Sunday at the Masters. "The ideal grass and really just the lush green fairways - it's basically golf's heaven", he said.

"It's up to me to be disciplined enough to follow the game plan".

"Definitely looking forward to the weekend and the putts are definitely due to fall". "I was lucky just to see the ball, and I had a stance". I just don't like that hole. He bogeyed both, and really unraveled at the par-3 12th.

Collins: If there's one hole that's "fun" to a caddie, which one is it?

Coverage: Watch live and uninterrupted coverage of Sunday's action on BBC Two from 18:30 BST and up to four live streams online from 15:15. The crowd all around the green, especially if you're a little bit later. I've been hitting that shot well on the range and I thought it was a prime opportunity to give it a test.

Collins: Forget the players for a minute.

"And you call yourself a fan". My concerns stemmed from the fact that, when on the course, even the media is expected to adhere to Augusta National's strict prohibitions on cell phones and other electronic devices.

He hit shots into places even he'd never been to in almost 20 years of playing Augusta National, including launching one into the bushes behind the fifth green, leading to a lengthy search for his ball that could have been a scene from a safari. You're hitting from a low spot up to an elevated green.

Right now, golf gets to have its cake and eat it, too.

"It won't be quite as intense as that Ryder Cup match, I don't think", McIlroy said, alluding to the partisan and at times rude nature of cheers rarely found at Augusta National.
