Masters Update After The First Round

Round two of the 2019 Masters is set to begin Friday. The first round proved this year as highly competitive with a plethora of golfers within a few strokes of each other. Many of whom are elite golfers with Green Jackets already in their closets.

Leaders After Round 2

Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are tied for first with -6. DeChambeau credits his placement to being able to adjust to the different slopes on the course.

Phil Mickelson is in third at -5 and says he came into the Masters playing with a lot of confidence.

Here’s what Mickelson had to say:

After winning the Masters 3 times, Friday will be Mickelson’s 100th round golfing in the Masters.

Dustin Johnson and Ian Poulter are tied for fourth at -4.

Things could change drastically for the leader board after round two because 20 golfers are within four strokes of first place. Some of the golfers in the mix have great track recorders at the Masters.

Big Names Going Into Round 3

Tiger Woods is among some of these golfers at -2. Woods expressed that so far, he’s been actuate with his ball placements.

Former Gator, Billy Horsel, is tied for 11th with a -2.

In addition, Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth both are +3 and need to have a strong round three to stay in the running. This shouldn’t be too hard for Spieth to hunker down in his game, considering the Masters is his favorite tournament.

Meanwhile, Rory Mcllory will also be on the chopping block Friday, because it’s cut day and only the top 50 will advance to round 3 on Saturday.

Tournament Details

Round 2 will be aired on ESPN on Friday.

Rounds 3 and 4 will be on CBS on Saturday and Sunday.
