Well, we didn’t get to see much through the rest of Day 2 at Augusta National when rain interrupted ongoing play late this afternoon. There were players and spectators being forced to evacuate by officials, while there was a huge tree collapse over on the 17th tee where no one was fortunately hurt. So we will wait and see how the make up of the current leaderboard look like going into tomorrow before entering the final two rounds in the race for the one & only green jacket prize.
In the meantime, we saw a huge reshuffle of players coming in and out of the Top 10 places so far until this point. The man to watch right now is USA’s Brooks Koepka, who is currently in top spot by himself now after an excellent shift today on 5 under 67 which puts him at a total of-12, with Spaniard Jon Rahm is not far behind even though he has another 9 holes to go from the 10th. So does Last year’s US Amateur champion Sam Bennett where he moves up to 3rd right now (-8) through excellent back-to-back scores of 68, as he looks to become the first amateur player to win the The Masters in its 87-year existence.
Then we have our Aussies & Kiwis corner with Jason Day (Tied 6th at -5) & Adam Scott (Tied 10th at -4) still in the Top 10 despite some dips in form. Although Scott still has some holes to catch up, so there’s plenty of time left to make a late charge going into this weekend. Meanwhile, nothing much has changed from NZ’s Ryan Fox over in Tied 18th, while Cam Smith can hopefully turn things around going into the back nine & climb a few places on Tied 22nd right now. And sadly, there’s very little chance of both Harrison Crowe (Tied 63rd) & Min Woo Lee (Tied 71st) surviving the Top 50 cut ahead of this weekend where Harrison didn’t improve that much & Min-Woo going from bad to worse with 3 holes still to play.
