View from the azaleas: Day two at Augusta
Saturday 09 April 2011
Shot of the Day
After finding himself amongst the trees on the eighth, Phil Mickelson brought out a wood to fire a beauty off the pine straw to the green on the way to the unlikeliest of birdies at the par-five. Echoes here of his wonder-shot on the 13th last year as the American charged inexorably towards his third Green Jacket.
Outfit of the Day
Bubba Watson looked positively pearly in an all-white ensemble. Despite looking more like a caddy than a pro, the big-hitting American will be wearing the same outfit for the entire tournament, a first for the Masters.
Shank of the Day
Ian Woosnam, who won here in 1991, hit a fan in the head with his tee-shot off the six. The fan was bandaged up and suffered no serious injuries. The Welshman, whose hip problem meant he had to sit on a shooting stick during his round, gave the fan a ball to ease the pain. Woosnam's pain continued though – he may have hit a fan, but he missed the cut by a mile.
