After winning a four-shot lead on the back nine, Rory McIlroy’s second round at The Masters was marred by three bogeys and a costly triple-bogey seven. He finished in fourth place.
The “2019 masters third round” is a recap of the second round at The Masters.
Tiger Woods will participate in The Masters Tournament this weekend, exactly 14 months after fracturing many bones in his right leg and foot in a terrifying single-car accident.
Woods shot a 1-under 71 in his first PGA Tour round since November 2020, and he did enough in Round 2 to make the cut for the 22nd time at Augusta National Golf Club. So, how did Tiger perform on Friday, and do you think he has a chance to win his sixth green jacket?
With a strong second round at The Masters, Tiger Woods continues to defy the odds.
A few holes into his second round, things weren’t looking good for our guy.
He began the day with a sloppy bogey on the first hole, and after a good par on the second, he bogeyed three consecutive holes to drop to 3-over par. Given that the cut line was at 4-under at the moment, Woods seemed like he may be on his way out early.
But, in true Tiger form, he bounced back when he needed to.
Woods almost reached the green in two on the par-5 eighth hole before getting up and down from the fairway for his first birdie of the game. The best shot of the day occurred on the par-4 10th hole. Tiger hit a long iron from 208 yards away and stuffed his approach to three feet after splitting the fairway with his tee ball. It’s a whole dart.
To go back to 1-over, Woods would make the short birdie try. Two consecutive bogeys on the difficult 11th and 12th holes endangered Woods’ weekend once again, but he bounced back with two straight birdies on the 13th and 14th holes. He’d finish the day with a 2-over par 74 after parring his last four holes.
It was another amazing round for the 46-year-old, who hadn’t played competitively in 17 months, despite the strong winds and hard conditions. He’ll be nine strokes behind leader Scottie Scheffler heading into the weekend.

You’d think that if I told you Woods was just four strokes behind second place with two rounds to go, he’d be right in the mix for another green jacket. Unfortunately for him, World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler went berserk in his first two rounds, finishing at 8-under par going into the weekend. He’s five strokes ahead of second place and holding his first major championship.
Tiger would need a miracle weekend to catch Scheffler and win, but a solid third round would put him in an excellent position to finish in the top 10 or top 5. I’m sure he’d take it as a start to the week.
In any case, we’ll see Tiger red for the first time in almost a year on Sunday, and that’s all we could ask for from this week.
