    JUSTIN MAKES PAR

    Justin Rose sinks a par four at the third hole to stay at seven under overall through the first three of round two.

    Shane Lowry finds a birdie after a magnificent chip onto the green to take him back to one over par.

    Matt Kuchar pars the third after a birdie at the second to stay five over par overall.

    FLEETWOOD AT THE FIRST

    Tommy Fleetwood starts the day with a solid par at the first.

    There was a chance for a birdie but his par from teen feet away just pulled to the left so he'll tap in for par to stay at two over overall.

    Phil Mickleson escapes with a bogey to go four over par and Scottie Scheffler makes par to stay at one over.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    PHIL'S IN TROUBLE

    Phil Mickleson is in a spot of bother at the first.

    His third shot from the edge of the green comes rolling back to his feet.

    His second effort to get it back on the green is better but it's going to be a bogey to start for two time champion Phil Mickleson.

    That will take him from three over par to four over.

    ROSE BIRDIES

    Here's a look at Justin Rose's birdie at the second that cancelled out his bogey from the first.

    It's been a poor start for his partner Shane Lowry.

    The Irishman has bogeyed the second after a double bogeying the first.

    He's now two over par overall after starting the day one under.

    BIRDIE!

    There it is!

    Justin Rose's bogey at the first is quickly forgotten as he sinks his putt for birdie at the second.

    He's back where he was at the start of the day at seven under par overall.

    BIRDIE CHANCE

    Justin Rose puts his bogey at the first behind him with a cracking shot onto the green from a tough position on the edge of a banker.

    He's on for a birdie here which would put him back to seven under par overall and would restore his four shot cushion at the top of the leaderboard.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    BERND BIRDIES AGAIN

    It's now four birdies from the first six holes for Bernd Wiesberger.

    He's four under par for round two through six holes and two under par overall.

    2020 COMPARISON

    When the Masters was last held in November 2020 there were TWENTY-FOUR scores in the sixties after round one.

    Yesterday there were three.

    Justin Rose with 65 and Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama shooting scores of 69.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    LEADERBOARD

    So as things stands Justin Rose's lead has been trimmed to three shots after he bogeys the first hole at Augusta.

    The second is the ideal hole for him to claim that shot back though with a good chance for a birdie at this par five hole.

    Marc Leishman has started the day well, sinking three birdies out of three to start the day.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    BOGEY

    Not the best of starts for Justin Rose as he bogeys the first hole.

    He was always in trouble in trouble after that first shot and couldn't save par.

    He's down to six over par overall.

    It's not as bad as Shane Lowry though as he double bogeys to undo his hard work yesterday and take him to one over par overall.

    Matt Kuchar opens with par but he's way back at six over par overall.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    MASTERFUL MARC

    Marc Leishman has birdied the first three holes of the day!

    What a start for the Australian who is now tied for second place at three under par.

    If he hadn't had three consecutive bogeys yesterday he could well have been at the top of the leaderboard.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    ROSE IN TROUBLE

    Here's where Justin Rose ended up after his tee shot at the first hole.

    He sensibly chipped it onto the fairway from here instead of trying to find the green and is battling to save par on the first hole.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    BRILLIANT BERND

    Bernd Wiesberger has now birdied FOUR out of the first five holes on day two.

    That puts him two under par overall through five holes of the second round and five shots off the leader Justin Rose.

    What a start!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    ROSE'S SECOND SHOT

    It's not the end of the world for Justin Rose.

    He's in a clearing to the right of the fairway without any tress between him and the main course.

    He's just going to chip it back onto the fairway so it might be tough for him to save par here on the first.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    BACK-TO-BACK BIRDIES

    Marc Leishman has started the day well after four bogeys on the back nine yesterday.

    He's birdied the first two holes of the second round to be two under par overall and tied for fourth on the leaderboard.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    IFFY START

    It's not the greatest of opening shots from Justin Rose.

    Shane Lowry started with an absolute peach straight down the middle of the fairway but Rose's effort is off to the right, close to the trees.

    Kuchar rounds off the opening groups tee shots and it's a belter, centre of the fairway in an ideal position.

    The first hole at Augusta is a par four.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    HERE THEY COME

    Justin Rose, Shane Lowry and Matt Kuchar make their way to the first hole.

    Justin Rose looks cool, calm and collected but his heart must be racing.

    Can he finally convert a Masters lead into winning the competition at the fifth attempt?

    It will be Shane Lowry to take the first shot.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FIVE MINUTE WARNING

    Just over FIVE minutes now until current leader Justin Rose tees off for his second round of the 2021 Masters.

    Will he stretch his seven shot lead today or will the chasing pack close the gap?

    His partner Shane Lowry is also in a promising position, one under par after an impressive first round.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    MISFIRING MCILROY

    Rory McIlroy's round of 76 yesterday was his first ever opening round at the Masters.

    He's four over par overall but did say he was starting to feel better towards the end of the day yesterday.

    If anyone who could turn it around it's Rory.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    DAY TWO LIVE

    Marc Leishman of Australia on the first hole at Augusta on day two.

    He briefly shared the lead yesterday before four bogeys on the back nine meant he shot a level par score of 72 yesterday.

    BIRDIE

    Bernd Wiesberger is on the charge!

    The Austrian has birdied the first three holes of the day to take him to one under par overall.

    He's just six shots off the lead now.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    RELENTLESS ROSE

    As we near leader Justin Roses' tee time let's take a quick look back at his remarkable round yesterday.

    He shot a round of 65 compared to the rest of the field averaging 74.57, almost TEN shots behind Rose.

    His four shot lead also ties second largest lead at Augusta after the first eighteen holes of the competition.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    BERND BIRDIES AGAIN

    Austrian Bernd Wiesberger has followed up his birdie at the first with another birdie at the second!

    He's back down to level par overall after shooting a two over par round of 74 yesterday.

    What a start to the day!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    STAT ATTACK

    Justin Rose is the eleventh player in the past fifty editions of the Masters to hold a multi-stroke lead entering the second round.

    Of the previous ten, only Jordan Spieth won the Green Jacket.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    COUNTDOWN TO ROSE

    There's less than forty-five minutes to go now until current leader Justin Rose tees off on day two at Augusta.

    He's in a group with Ireland's Shane Lowry who hit a very good one under par round of 71 yesterday, and American Matt Kuchar.

    He didn't have a great day yesterday, hitting a six over par score of 78.
