By Brad Wright

With the Masters tournament officially over on Sunday, it is time for our final notes from the event, so enjoy!

Charl Schwartzel: Schwartzel shot a 66 in order to win the Masters tournament. He finished the day in a dramatic fashion, as he won by two shots over Jason Day and Adam Scott. Schwartzel birdied his last four holes and earned the honorary green jacket.

Jason Day: Day put together a solid final round and finished tied in second place with Adam Scott.

Adam Scott: Scott finished the day five-under and was the leader until Schwartzel birdied on four holes.

Rory McIlroy: McIlroy appeared to be the clear favorite on Sunday, but sadly, things don’t always turn out the way they are supposed to be. He shot 37, one-over par on his front nine and then finished with 80 for the day.

Day three has come and gone for the Masters tournament, but here our latest notes on the event. Get excited because Sunday should be an interesting finish.

Rory McIlory: stayed consistent by posting two under par and will be the 54-hole leader heading into Sunday.

Tiger Woods: Went two-over par and remains seven shots behind McIlroy.

Phil Mickelson: Did not shoot a low score, but still trails McIlroy. He remains behind the struggling Tiger Woods.

Jason Day: He bogeyed four holes and birdied an additional four holes en route to an even par 72 for the day.

K.J Choi: Played a solid round and remains four shots back.

Angel Cabrera: The former Masters Champion went five-under par and put himself four shots behind McIlroy.

The Masters: Day Two Wrap Up

By Brad Wright

Tiger Woods: Fist pumps were flying on Friday, as Tiger shot a 66 and stumbled his way to a par-35 during the first nine holes. He birdied on every par-five, which was a good sign. Tiger remains three strokes behind Rory McIlroy and one behind Jason Day. Tiger will be playing with K.J Choi on Saturday.

Rory McIlroy: Rory has remained consistent during the first two rounds. McIlroy only slipped once with his first bogey of the tournament during his back nine on Friday, but continues to remain an active member of the pack.

Jason Day: He shot an even par round of 72 on Thursday and played very well on Friday, shooting at 64. Day remains one stroke ahead of Tiger and two strokes behind Rory.

K.J Choi: K.J had another solid round by going two under par and did leave a few putts on the course. For example, Choi needed three putts to get down from five feet on the 18th hole, but luckily, he finished his round with a bogey.

Martin Kaymer: With Tiger somewhat behind and lagging at times, Kaymer could fall down if Woods walks away the winner. Kaymer is yet to make a cut at Augusta, so don’t expect much from him on Saturday.

Phil Mickelson: Phil did not make too much noise on Friday, as he finished the day evenly and finished the first two days, two-under par.
