Saturday is Moving Day at Augusta

04.09.16

Friday Leaderboard

As in moving backwards if the wind continues.

Course set up will be the key to the round today.

Wind does two important things to this golf course.

It makes the players think about their ball-striking and club selection plus it dries out the greens.

After watching Spieth run over the joint for 270 last year and becoming the first player to reach 19-under at Augusta, I don’t think they’re going to water the greens and stick in easy pins.

There were 20 players in the red after round one.

There were seven after round two.

Yesterday was the first round without a player in the 60s since 2007.

There were four 71s on Friday, the low round of the day.

Here are the only players with both rounds at par or better:

McIlroy 70 71
Piercy 70 72
Snedeker 71 72
Matsuyama 71 72
Aphibarnrat 72 72
Dechambeau 72 72
