While conditions got better throughout the day, it was a tough scoring day for the Swoosh Squad. Here are the round 2 scores from the 9 Nike athlete field at Augusta;
It was a tough day overall, as all Nike athletes shot +3 or worse. Three of which missed the cut; Paul Casey shot +3, Lucas Glover shot +9, Simon Dyson shot +5.
Ross Fisher had 8 bogeys on the day, double what he had in Round 1.
Tiger Woods starte the day with birdies on 2 of the first 3 holes but didn’t seem to have the right stuff after that. He had 5 bogeys after that. Tiger is only hitting 50% of fairways and just over 50% of greens. He needs to step his game up.
Charl Schwartzel started in a similar fashion with birdies on 2 of the first 4 holes, but had 5 bogeys after that to end his second round.
Kevin Chappell didn’t have a great day, but ended birdie-birdie-par-par which is a great finish for anyone. He will look to build on that momentum tomorrow. Kevin is hitting 75% of fairways, which always helps.
Stewart Cink’s putter isn’t quite on. He’s hitting over 80% in Fairways and Greens. That’s incredible.
Francesco Molinari is the only one on the Top 25. He’s on 89% of Fairways and 75% of Greens. I think his scores will come around in the next two days and he’ll stay in the Top 25.
