They're still chasing Jordan Spieth. But this time, it's a real race. The defending champion struggled after what he called a "dream start" of 2-under through three holes to shoot 2-over-par 74 on Friday in a brutal second round.
Bernhard Langer, the 58-year-old two-time Masters champion, shot 73 on Friday and is tied for 15th at 1-over, five shots behind leader Jordan Spieth. Davis Love III, who will turn 52 next week, matched that 73 and is tied for 23rd at 2-over.
As the cut line moved with leader Jordan Spieth's late bogeys, Phil Mickelson's spot for the weekend sat 22 feet away. But his failed birdie putt on No. 18 left him with his worst-ever Masters round of 79.
LAMAR-MILLEDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL pupils Cayden Oliver, Ian Bentley and Lorenzo Jones enjoyed Friday at Augusta National Golf Club, thanks to a Salvation Army program that provides Augusta schoolchildren with badges.
"I like Bubba," said Cayden, 7.
