Rory McIlroy sets clubhouse target on day two at Masters


And Justin Thomas, the hottest player in the game.

Leishman's chip from behind the green rolled through the putting surface and into the water. He was second through 36 holes in the 2013 Masters, a shot behind Jason Day.

The meltdown left Garcia at 10 over in the opening round and 14 shots behind the leaders.

Ultimately, it would take nothing short of a miracle for Woods to achieve a comeback victory.

How will Tiger make out in Round 2? The massive gallery and the accompanying energy, Leishman suggests, might've been good preparation for the weekend. But that left him with a 4-over total and in a tie for 40th.

Tiger Woods's ball striking was off all day, and he also couldn't get a putt to fall.

His adventures at No. 5 were even wilder. His second shot squirted right and into the gallery he just repositioned. He got up and down from the sand for a 6.

No. 2: Woods has dominated the par 5s at Augusta National in his career, but managed to only make four pars on Thursday.

With an exception or two, they'll be the ones battling for the green jacket at Augusta National this weekend.

"And I fought hard to get it back in there, and I'm back in this championship. But I made some nice par saves and was able to grind out some phenomenal second-shot iron shots and good two-putt birdies".

Still, it ended up being a solid day for the golfer nicknamed "Boom Boom".

Sixty-year-old Bernhard Langer made the cut. He only trails Jack Nicklaus in terms of cuts made, which is just incredible. A crowded field with no breakaway leader means there will be a bottleneck of players within striking distance of the top spot. Both Reed and Leishman are seeking their first major title. He has the best score relative to par at the Masters since 2011, and the most birdies and eagles since 2012. Even a bogey on the final hole felt like a par the way he navigated out of the trees and limited the damage with a pitch that stopped inches from going in.

No. 9: With a driver on the ninth, Woods splits the middle of the fairway. Woods has only shot under once (a 68 in 2010) in the opening round at Augusta. If Thursday's 66 was Spieth at his best, Friday's 74 was him at his most quintessential.

He was over the green on the 240-yard fourth and then missed a 7-footer for par. Ditto for 58-year-old Fred Couples. He would par his next six holes to keep himself at 4 over while the cutline was looming at 5 over. It was his first triple of the tournament.

Jordan Spieth is missing fairways and struggling with his putter.

Spieth also missed putts of 11 and 5 feet.

Garcia seemed to spend much of Friday going through the motions. Jordan Spieth is at 1-under-par through the second hole in the Masters Tournament 2018 First Round.

Spieth double-bogeyed the first hole to drop to 4 under in the 72-hole tournament.

No. 6: On the downhill, par-3 sixth, Woods again takes a lot of time to survey the wind.

"Absolutely, absolutely", said Kuchar, who shot 31 on the back nine.

Woods is playing the Masters for the first time since a tie for 17th in 2015.

Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler were among those at 70. Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Jon Rahm are right behind that threesome. He putted from there to 3 feet and brushed the birdie in to move back to 3 over.
