No. 1 Johnson, No. 3 Thomas eye second major wins at Masters

Bryson DeChambeau drives just short of the green but LOSES HIS BALL! Im, Johnson share early second round Masters lead

Forty-eight players did not finish their second rounds, including Tiger Woods, Hideki Matsuyama, Patrick Reed, Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth. "I just simply haven't executed it and performed it well".

There was not enough daylight to get everyone's second round in at The Masters. The 63-year-old victor of green jackets in 1985 and 1993 finished 36 holes on three-under par 141 after completing a four-under par 68 first round and a second-round 73.

In all, 48 golfers must finish round two on Saturday morning.

Thomas was one of four players tied for the lead when play was suspended due to fading light, with a stunning tee shot into the par-three 16th setting up one of four consecutive birdies in his second-round 69 at Augusta National.

The low cut line could also spell trouble for Bryson DeChambeau.

The likes of Jon Rahm, Paul Casey, Bryson DeChambeau and Tiger Woods are now on the back nine completing their second rounds before the halfway cut will see the top 50 and ties through to the final 36 holes.

DeChambeau could be left ruing a triple-bogey seven on the par-3 third, which was followed by three more bogeys before the turn.

DeChambeau will simply be trying to make the cut when he returns Saturday morning to complete his final six holes of his second round.

The team bonded unlike any worldwide team before and went close to pulling off an almighty upset against a superstar United States team led by playing captain and defending Masters champion Tiger Woods.

Thomas has watched shots do unexpected things this week, a mix of rain-softened conditions and autumn weather requiring some adaptation from lessons learned over time at Augusta National.

"Played real solid, had a lot of good looks, none of them seemed to want to go in", Johnson said.

"It has been fine", Ancer said. "I played the par 3s really good". "That obviously makes it a little easier for me to get close to the hole when the greens get a little softer".

Hardly what was expected from a guy who has transformed his body into something resembling an National Football League middle linebacker, who overpowered the U.S. Open field at Winged Foot to capture his first major title, who brashly set par at Augusta as 67 rather than 72.
