Masters 2011

Young guns partners again

The bad news for the field in the 75th Masters Tournament is that Northern Ireland's 21-year-old Rory McIlroy and Australia's 23-year-old Jason Day will be playing together today for the third straight round. If they continue to bring out the best in each other, they'll be hard to catch.

Tiger finds game, and roars follow

It was a frustrating, wheel-spinning first nine for Tiger Woods on Friday at Augusta National Golf Club. "All I wanted to do was get to under par for the tournament," he said. Woods did much more than that. It quickly turned into vintage Tiger at Augusta.

Tiger steps into weekend hunt at Masters

This Masters Tournament just got very, very interesting. With the last roar of the day Friday, Tiger Woods dropped in one more birdie for a 66 to jump into a tie for third behind a couple of kids. We're about to find out a lot of pressing questions this weekend.

Couples' cool has an ageless quality

Which is more impressive -- that 51-year-old Freddie Couples is competing with guys less than half his age to win the Masters Tournament or that he's still cooler than all of them?

Donald still has shot at ending Par-3 jinx

With his 4-under-par 68 on Friday, Luke Donald put himself in position to challenge for his first Masters Tournament title. Should everything fall into place for him Sunday, the Englishman also would end a 51-year-old curse. No one has won the Par-3 Contest, as Donald did Wednesday, and the Masters in the same year.

Yang's rise reversed on back nine

Y.E. Yang climbed to the top of the leaderboard at the Masters early Friday with a furry of birdies, but back-nine bogeys ended his day right where he started it. He shot even-par 72 to finish the first two days at 5-under, tied for seventh.

Quiros achieves his goal

Alvaro Quiros gave one of the more eye-opening comments from players after an opening-round 65 Thursday. Quiros said his aim was to make the cut and "it would be stupid" to think about shooting 65 again. Quiros was right on target Friday.

Putting proves challenging for Barnes

Ricky Barnes is better known for his engineer's cap than his golf game. He hopes to change that this weekend. After carding 1-under 71 in the second round of the Masters Tournament, Barnes finds himself in contention at a place where he has had success before.

Birdie putts save Ogilvy

A major winner in Friday's 10:30 a.m. group made a charge up the leaderboard in the second round, but it wasn't Phil Mickelson. Geoff Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open winner, shot his second 3-under 69 to move to 6-under for the tournament and a tie for fifth place.

Mickelson needs big charge

Phil Mickelson walked off the 18th green at Augusta National Golf Club on Friday with the confidence and swagger of a man ready to win his fourth green jacket. The fact that he was eight strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy didn't seem to phase him.

Early departure won't spoil tournament

Jhonny Vegas, who did not make the cut after shooting a two-day 4-over 148, shared his rookie Masters experience with The Augusta Chronicle:

Missing cut doesn't have to mean leaving

Patrons could do a double take at the Tournament Practice Range today. They just might see a player working on his game who isn't in the Masters Tournament anymore. It's not unheard of for a player who missed Friday's 36-hole cut to stay and work on his game, especially considering the club's state-of-the-art practice area.

Clubs used by Eisenhower being sold in online auction

A set of golf clubs used by President Eisenhower sat abandoned in a shed behind an Augusta home for years. After today, they will be in the hands of the highest bidder on an online auction site. New Jersey-based Green Jacket Auctions is taking bids until 8 p.m. today for Eisenhower's golf bag and his five Spalding Bobby Jones golf clubs.

Masters trash is treasure for some

The commemorative plastic cups that come with beers and sodas are as much a part of the Masters Tournament as pimento cheese sandwiches and golf itself, patrons say. Garbage picking is not ruled out.

Players tweet about second rounds

Golfers get serious on Friday for the second round. Here are some of their tweets and reactions from the day.

Athletes on tour amazing to Tiger

It was perhaps inevitable, but golfers at the Masters Tournament are playing a game even Tiger Woods is not familiar with. "They are doing things no one has ever seen on tour before," Woods said of the newest breed of players, who are turning heads the way he did in the 1990s.

Woodland slumps in second round

Gary Woodland knows what it feels like when he's having one of those grind-it-out rounds. A day after blistering the back nine en route to an opening-round 69, Woodland couldn't recapture the magic and slipped to 1-over 73 in the second round.
Full Story


Watson survives a rough second

Players across the course were posting low scores Friday, but a sizable contingent of Masters Tournament patrons still followed Bubba Watson and his roller-coaster sideshow. The former University of Georgia golfer was all over the map in shooting 1-under 71, which left him at even par at the midway point.

Day fires at every pin in sizzling 64

For someone who owns all of two rounds at Augusta National Golf Club, Jason Day surely isn't shaking in his golf cleats. The 23-year-old Australian played as though it were a game of darts Friday, firing at the pins for a bogey-free 64.
Full Story


Amateurs leaving Matsuyama behind

The expression on Hideki Matsuyama's face probably didn't need translation: He will play the weekend at the Masters. The 19-year-old amateur had completed his second round at his first Masters after his even-par opening round with a 1-over 73. That was good enough to make the cut, making Matsuyama the only one of six amateurs to do so.

No. 1s aren't ones to stay for weekend

Forty-nine players made the cut Friday at the Masters Tournament. World No. 1 Martin Kaymer is not one of them. The reigning PGA Championship winner is among a star-studded group who will be watching the Masters on TV this weekend.

In the field

After Padraig Harrington had teed off Thursday, there was no doubt: He knew he would do so again Friday, no matter how his neck felt. The three-time major champion, who said he hurt his neck while warming up Thursday morning, had 40 percent movement in his neck Friday.

Fan notes

On their 10th year coming to Augusta National Golf Club, Louie and Deborah Nye have their routine down. They start the morning at the practice area watching their favorite players prepare for their rounds.

Masters Insider: Jason Day

Jason Day earned his first Masters invitation by winning the Byron Nelson Classic last year. The 23-year-old from Australia shot 64 on Friday to vault into second place.

Where to go: Hill on 16

One of the most popular gathering spots is the 16th hole. In 2008, Augusta National added a viewing area on the hillside overlooking the pond and green. A storm wiped out some trees a few years ago, so the club converted the area into a place that has become popular with patrons.

What to expect: Moving day

Low scores should be plentiful in today's third round. If form follows the action from 2010, when Phil Mickelson made consecutive eagles, then patrons should be in for an exciting day.

Patron of the day: Jackson Dupree

Jackson Dupree is a 7-year-old from Appling who is visiting the Masters for the second time.
