The Masters 2022: second round – live! | Sport


Yesterday was like November 2020 all over again, as Im Sung-jae, Cameron Smith and Dustin Johnson grouped at the top of the leader board. There were also shades of 2016, as Danny Willett put his post-win Augusta woes behind him with a 69. Thoughts also turned to 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019, as Tiger Woods blah blah … you’ve heard word , I’m sure.

There were a few disappointments too, though. Some of the big pre-tournament picks didn’t really show yesterday – Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm – and plenty of those big names are going out this morning, already requiring something in the 60s to get back into contention. Some have games in decent nick to fall back on, some less so.

But it’s only Friday, so the tournament is still taking shape. Much will be turned upside down by the end of play today. Here’s how the top of the leader board looks…

-5: Im
-4: Smith
-3: Willett, Niemann, Scheffler, D Johnson
-2: Kokrak, Conners, Cantlay
-1: Higgs, Na, Berger, Woods, Finau, Simpson, Varner III, Zalatoris, Fitzpatrick
