  • The wind just took Gary Woodland's ball and rolled it all the way down the green. Winds are moving at more than 20 mph now.

  • Scottie Scheffler is tied with Bryson in the lead again after a clutch birdie at the 10th.

  • If it's not Phil, Tiger could play with Rory McIroy or Justin Thomas on Saturday, too. It should be a fantastic pairing regardless.

  • A great finish for Collin Morikawa, though he's still four shots back from Bryson DeChambeau as it stands.

  • Bryson isn't slowing down. He's got a two-shot lead now headed into the 14th.

  • @ArtButSports never fails.

  • Tiger just finished with an even-par 72 on Friday to make the cut.

  • Tiger Woods is safely into the weekend, which gives him the all-time record.

  • Tiger Woods is on pace to make a record 24th straight cut now at Augusta National.

  • Bryson DeChambeau is back in the lead at 7-under.

  • That's back-to-back pars now for Woods. He'll head to the 18th at even par on the day and 1-over on the week.

  • Tiger Woods missed an eagle putt at the 15th, but that left him with an easy two-putt birdie to get back to 1-over on the week.

  • Tiger Woods just bogeyed the 14th after missing his approach shot long of the green and then pushing his par save long. He's at 2-over now, still two shots inside the projected cutline.

  • Scottie Scheffler birdies almost immediately to match Bryson at 7-under.

  • Tiger Woods is holding strong through Amen Corner. He's still at 1-over on the week.

  • That's a huge birdie putt for Bryson DeChambeau at the 7th. He's back in the lead again at Augusta.

  • Looks like Vijay should make the cut at Augusta National for the first time in six years.

  • Tiger Woods is 1-over at the turn, and two shots inside the projected cutline.

  • DeChambeau with his first big wobble of the second round on No. 6. after pounding a 5-iron over the green on the par 3, a pitch an two-putt bogey has him now a shot off the pace, with Max Homa now all alone in first place at 7-under par. Homa, who bogeyed 18 to close out his first round this morning, got through the first nine on his second round with two birdies and seven pars. Homa has just one top ten at a major, a T10 at the 2023 Open Championship at Hoylake.

  • Tiger Woods gets to the turn, even par for the day and 1-over for the tournament after a first nine that included three bogeys, three pars and three birdies. He remains six shots back of the lead, shared by Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau at 7-under.

  • Bryson DeChambeau is still tied for the lead (-7) after opening his second round with a couple of pars on Nos. 1 and 2, including getting up and down for a 5 on the second hole after a poor pitch shot into a greenside bunker.

    The 2020 U.S. Open champion's best ever finish at the masters was a T21 when he was the low amateur back in 2016 in his first trip to Augusta National. The now-LIV Golf star has had a good season on that tour, leading his team Crushers GC to first place in the current LIV standings. He also leads that loop in eagles and driving distance on the season.

  • Tiger Woods adds to his lengthy list of Masters highlights with a chip-in for birdie on the par 3 sixth hole. After missing the green a little short, Woods leaned on his legendary short game to to his career reel. This birdie got woods back to +1 for the championship after back-to-back bogeys on No. 4 and No. 5.


  • We have a new co-leader. Max Homa birdied the par-3 fourth hole to move to 7-under and into a tie with Bryson DeChambeau.

  • Max Homa is off to a hot start in his second round. After Birdies on No. 16 and No. 17 to finish his first round this morning, Homa has birdies on No. 2 and No. 4 and has jumped into a tie for the lead with Bryson DeChambeau (-7) thru four holes today. Check out this long birdie putt on the par 3 fourth — that the TV commentators said was playing 265 yards, into the wind — that got Homa on top of the leaderboard:

  • Collin Morikawa's first round is in the books. He finished with a Birdie on 18 to shoot a 1-under, 71. He'll be back out for his second round just before 11 a.m. ET.

  • What happened to Tiger/Max Homa/Jason Day on the second green is a perfect illustration of why scoring is going to be difficult at Augusta National today.

    Both Homa and Day had lengthy eagle putts that they blew well by the hole. Day missed his birdie putt; Homa slipped his in. Meanwhile, Tiger hit what looked like a perfect 12-foot putt for birdie only to have it stop just before it dropped into the cup.

    Finding the right speed on the greens is a chore.

    By the way, that birdie for Homa moved him to within one shot of the lead.

  • As Round 2 gets underway, here's where we're at:

    - Bryson DeChambeau, who tees off at 11:54 a.m., holds a one-shot lead over world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. Scheffler doesn't tee off until 1:48.

    - If you're looking at the cut line, it's top 50 and ties, which at the moment would include Tiger Woods (+1) who is aiming for a record 24th straight made cut.

    Notable players currently on the outside looking in: Justin Rose, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Brian Harman, the reigning British Open champ who is dead last.

    - Wind is a factor. There is a steady breeze at Augusta National and it's expected to continue throughout the day. That will make scoring tough, maybe more so for the later tee times when the greens will be fullier (is that a word?) dried out.

    - Biggest surprise: That would be Neal Shipley, an amateur who is currently 1-under and in 15th place. The 23-year-old warmed up for his first Masters by hitting up Waffle House Wednesday. Smart man.

    - Biggest disappointment: Take your pick between Spieth (+7), Fowler (+4) and Harman (+9). The cut line right now is +2. They have work to do to make it to the weekend.

  • Tiger Woods is off for his second round at Augusta National. After finishing his first round on Friday morning and carding a 1-over, 73, Woods is looking to make his 24th-straight cut at the Masters which would be an all-time record. Woods opened with a par on No. 1 to begin Round 2

  • Tiger Woods drops another shot at 18. He comes in at 73, 1-over par.

  • Welp, Jordan Spieth will be happy to end Round 1. He made a mess at 15, pitching his fourth shot into the water en route to a quadruple bogey. He's at 6-over. Making the cut will now be a chore.

  • Tiger Woods leaves his putt short on 17 and taps in to par his third consecutive hole. He moves to 18 at even par.

  • Max Homa's near-eagle shot from 156 yards out.

  • Max Homa is on one this morning, dropping his approach at 17 an inch from the cup. That birdie will move him to 6-under, just one shot off the lead.

  • Tiger Woods needs two putts on 16 to get his second straight par. He remains even par for the first round as he heads to the 17th hole.

  • Meanwhile, Max Homa drained his birdie putt to put him at -5. He's just two back of DeChambeau.

  • Jason Day, sporting an interesting sweater this morning, dunked it into the water at 16. That led to a double bogey and he's now at +2.
