Five players share the lead after the second day of the 2019 Masters Tournament. Louis Oosthuizen, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Francesco Molinari lead the way at seven under par. The early rain softened the usually firm Augusta greens and this affected the scoring in day two. Surprisingly 45 golfers are at level par or better which is not typical for The Masters. The cut line was at three over par and 65 players, which is a record, managed to make it for the weekend. Among the names who failed to make the cut are the 2017 champion Sergio Garcia, world number one Justin Rose and Englishman Paul Casey.
Former world number one Jason Day suffered an injury in the opening round. The cameras showed him receiving a treatment from the physio on the second fairway. Obviously it has been a temporary pain as in round two Day played Augusta for 67 shots and climbed to the top.
Francesco Molinari continues to impress. The Italian posted third round 67 to enter Saturday as joint leader. Molinari’s record at Augusta is not great, his best results at the Masters is T19 in 2012.
Ian Poulter is in the mix at a major again. The Englishman shares 10th place and he is only two behind the leaders.
That’s what the players will face on Saturday:
