McGirt has solid start to 2nd day of Masters

His length off the tee provides him with the ability to tear up course, and he should be confident with the greens at Augusta after leading the putting stats at last year's tournament.

Lee Westwood: At 43, his prime has probably come and gone, but Westwood finished tied for second a year ago at Augusta National, and he's had five top-10s the last seven Masters.

"That pitch I think is the hardest in golf", Bann, who coaches several tour players and is a director at the Bann-Lynch-McDade instruction school in Australia, told Reuters.

England's Justin Rose, who won the first Olympic golf competition in 112 years when he topped the podium at Rio 2016, will be looking to go one better than his joint-second finish in 2015 as he heads out onto the course.

He's enjoyed the perks that have come with that status - wearing the green jacket in public with pride, the coveted No. 1 badge reserved for the defending champion, even planning Tuesday night's Champions Dinner.


Willett reckons not being the reigning champion anymore might help him get back to his best, but isn't sure the tag will ever leave him. "Just because you know what's coming your way when you get out there, because it's a major, you want to do well and you want to represent yourself well".

"He played the ball back in the stance, got a bit steep on it and hit it a fraction fat". I know you can't miss there (left of the green).

Wang earned his ticket to Augusta National by being in the top-50 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

"Unfortunately how it's gone the last few months every now and again you end up hitting a little pull when you're trying to hit a fade and then you hit a couple in reaction to that which miss right". It could work in Willett's favour to go under the radar, but he has confessed that his major breakthrough has brought on difficulties that he did not envisage. As he talked to his wife he said: "Wait, let me breathe this Augusta National air one more time".

Consistency has been the key for Hatton in recent months and fine performances in his past two majors, The Open and US PGA where he finished fifth and 10th, seemingly put the young Marlow man on the brink of something special.

"Some days I would wake up and I would feel really, really bad and sad about what's going on with my mum and other days I would wake up and then I would start feeling guilt because I didn't feel like I was feeling bad enough for the situation that my mum was going through". He was very much in an under-control point going to bed last night. When my mind is not there, I'm so far off.
