12 Apr 2024
Here comes Brooks Koepka?!

Koepka E (6)

Don't write this man off yet. 

A long birdie putt drops at the fourth for the five-time major champion, moving him back to level par. 

Elsewhere, Tiger Woods and Max Homa are in trouble and are staring bogeys in the face at the fifth. 

Not long until Bryson DeChambeau tees off

Bryson DeChambeau will kick off his second round at 16:54 BST. 

Can he make another fast start?

Jordan Spieth update

Spieth +7 (3)

The former champion began his second round the way he finished his third. Dreadfully. 

He sliced his opening tee shot way, way right and ended up making a bogey from the pinestraw. 

Spieth made amends quickly with a birdie on the second but he's still miles off what we expect the projected cut to be. 

Max Homa ties for the lead

Homa -7, Woods +1, Day +3 (4)

The par-3 fourth is playing long. 

Only Homa finds the putting surface but he is miles away. 

Not that it matters, as he drops a bomb for birdie to tie for the lead on seven under. 

Meanwhile Woods executes his greenside chip over the trap perfectly, but misses the subsequent par putt. 

Jason Day also scrambles for another par. 

Ludvig Aberg takes advantage of the par-5 second

Aberg E (2)

A sloppy finish in round one saw the Swede finish one over. 

But he has taken full advantage of his length and two-putted for birdie on the par-5 second. 

He's back to level. 

Shane Lowry slips further behind

Lowry +3 (8)

The former Open champion is going in the wrong direction. 

He's dropped another shot at the seventh hole after a wayward drive left him out of position.

After finding the greenside trap, Lowry can't get up-and-down to save his par. 

Justin Rose is struggling

Justin Rose +5 (7)

The Englishman began his second round at one over but bogeys at the first, fourth and a double at seven haven't helped matters. 

He needs to find something. 

And fast. 

Great read from Tiger!

Woods E, Day +3, Homa -6 (3)

The wind is really picking up now. 

All three players in this group find the green in regulation but only Woods takes advantage. 

He steadies himself and curls in a right-to-left slider from inside 10 feet. 

That was a loud cheer from the patrons. 

Let's check in with another Masters rookie

Matthieu Pavon -4 (4)

Great stuff so far from Pavon, who earned his spot here thanks to his victory at Torrey Pines in January. 

His victory at the Farmers Insurance Open meant he became the first French golfer of the modern era to win on the PGA Tour. 

Woods stays at one over

Woods +1, Day +3, Homa -6 (2)

Woods can't take advantage of the par-5 second. 

He missed the green left and chipped to within 15 feet but his birdie putt stops half an inch short. 

His playing partners find the putting surface in two but only Homa can take advantage with a curling birdie putt from close range.

Mud ball!

Watson +1 (4) 

Two-time Masters champ Watson airmails the green on the par-4 fifth. 

But he lets us know it wasn't his fault and yells loudly: "Mud ball!" 

Tyrrell Hatton begins to rebuild

Hatton -1 (2)

The fiery Englishman had a tough morning but has already picked up a stroke early with a birdie on the par-5 second. 

Augusta National has typically not been a kind place to Hatton. 

Will 2024 be different?

Par start for Woods

Woods +1, Day +3, Homa -5 (1)

All three players make opening pars. 

Steady stuff from Nicolai Hojgaard

Hojgaard -5 (4)

The Dane admitted he wanted a bit more sleep after his opening round but he's ticked off four consecutive pars to begin his second round. 

Tiger Woods is underway in round two

Fore, please! 

Now driving, Tiger Woods!

The 15-time major champion gets his second round underway at one over par and will face a battle to make the cut once again. 

His opening tee shot finds the left side of the fairway. 

Woods made birdie here yesterday. 

Strap yourselves in. 

How are the LIV players getting on?

Bryson DeChambeau leads the way for the breakaway tour atop the leaderboard on seven under. 

The American will begin his second round at 16:64 BST. 

How are the other LIV players getting on after round one?

Let's take a look:

Joaquin Niemann -2

Cameron Smith -2

Sergio Garcia E

Tyrrell Hatton E

Brooks Koepka +1

Phil Mickelson +1

Jon Rahm +1

Bubba Watson +1

Charl Schwartzel +2

Patrick Reed +2

Dustin Johnson +6

Adrian Meronk +8

Ugly finish for Tommy Fleetwood

Fleetwood E, Johnson +6, Morikawa -1 (18)

It's an ugly finish for the Englishman, who misses the green at 18 and can't save his par. 

That's back-to-back bogeys for Fleetwood, who sits on level par after 18 holes. 

Meanwhile, it's a steady opening round for Collin Morikawa and he's in at one under. 

LIV Golf's Dustin Johnson, though, has had a shocker. 

His short par attempt at slides by the cup and it's an ugly back nine for DJ. 

Ludvig Aberg cancels out good work

Aberg +1, Spieth +7, Theegala +2 (18)

This group have finally completed their opening round. 

It's a disaster start for Spieth, who looks all at sea. 

Meanwhile, Aberg's dropped shots at 14 and 15 wipe out the superb work he did on the front nine. 

Still, Aberg steadies the ship with pars at 16, 17, and 18.

What is going on with Brian Harman?

Harman +9 (18)

The 2023 Open champion turned in two under 34. 

But the American endured a torrid back nine in which he dropped 10 shots.

He returns an opening scorecard of nine over 81. 

Brooks Koepka birdies 18 to post 73

Koepka +1 (18)

Brooks Koepka has had a quiet start to the 2024 Masters. 

The American has now won five major championships and is widely expected to be a factor on Sunday afternoon. 

He sends a towering iron into the 18th and converts his birdie putt to sign for a 73. 

Big afternoon ahead for the LIV pro. 

What will be the projected cut?

It's looking like the projected cut at the 2024 Masters will either be two over par or three over par. 

Tiger Woods posts one over 73

Woods +1, Day +2, Homa -5 (18)

Woods will have about 50 minutes before beginning his second round where he will once again face a battle to make the cut. 

The iconic golfer hits his approach at the final hole into the right trap and he splashes out to about 15 feet. 

And his attempt slides by the right edge of the cup. 

He duly taps in for a 73 and he will have mixed feelings about that. 

Meanwhile his playing partners Max Homa and Jason Day also drop shots on the hole. 

Cameron Young in at two under

Cameron Young posts a two under 70 to open his 2024 Masters.
