The Masters: Day 2 Recap
The Masters: Day 2 Recap

Here are some notes and observations heading into Saturday's action:

1) Jordan Spieth -4

He will be the first to tell you that he did not have his best stuff out there, and also made uncharacteristic mental errors, but, guess what, this is his sixth straight round leading at The Masters. He is very comfortable at the top and his attitude is second to none.

2) Rory Mcilroy -3

Just a dream pairing. The two young guns. The winners of four of the last six majors. Nike vs. Under Armour. I feel like Rory has not even played that great, but if he finds it, watch out.

T3) Scott Piercy -2

The guy just will not go away.

T3) Danny Lee -2

Someone close to the game said to 'stay away from this kid on any sort of action as he is very nervous.' They said he was so nervous at the Presidents Cup in Korea that Nick Price actually had to pick around him in some of their matches. Not sure if I am buying that, but just letting you know what I heard.

T5) Brandt Snedeker -1

He always plays well here and wants this tournament so bad, being a southern boy. I was joking around with a buddy of mine that he plays so fast, I feel like it hurts him.

T5) Hideki Matsuyama -1

He is so solid and not intimidated at all. He has been in Butler Cabin twice during the green jacket award as low amateur,and I kind of think he wants to be in there again except in a different chair.

T5) Soren Kjeldsen -1

Another guy like Sergio who bogeyed the last two holes. And you thought he was done for... but fast forward three hours and the guy is in the top five with solid all-around play.

T5) Kiradech Aphibarnrat -1

This guy is the real deal.

T8) Danny Willett E

He didn't have his best stuff Friday, but hung in there and grinded it out. I think this kid is ready for the big stage.

T8) Sergio Garcia E

Remember what my dad said unsolicited on the way to the champions dinner on Tuesday -- that counts for something.

T8) Bryson Dechambeau E

This kid is going to be in there in the end. Watching the replay of the telecast and seeing his reaction when his ball went over the green on 15 and him saying it was unbelievable and complaining, was kind of a turn off to me. Then my tone completely changed after I saw him make a triple on 18 and smile the whole way off the green. I thought that was mature beyond his years, and you need that sort of moxie to compete in an event like this as an amateur.

T8 - Dustin Johnson E

Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky. He was a sexy pick at the beginning of the week, but has got lost in the shuffle.

T8 - Daniel Berger - E

This FSU Seminole continues to impress in his first Masters. He had a great pairing with two European Ryder Cup stalwarts in Jamie Donaldson and Justin Rose -- and beat both of them.
