Hoffman goes with the wind
Did anyone really think Hoffman was going to run away with this tournament? Hoffman with an early birdie on two it looked like he was starting right where he left off on Thursday. However, that changed pretty quickly after bogeying 5 of 6 holes in the middle of his round. He was able to finish strong and finish at 4-under, which is good enough to be tied for 1st going into the weekend at The Masters (not too shabby).
Can Sergio or Rickie get their first major championship (and green jacket)?
With his best finish at the Masters being a T-5 in 2014, Fowler is so due for a major championship victory. In some of the best form of his career and playing lights out the first two days at Augusta, Rickie is in a great position to capture that all elusive green jacket, and get the major monkey off his back.
Speaking of getting the monkey off his back, Sergio could use a win. As a Sergio hater, I wouldn’t mind one bit if he never wins a major championship, but the golf purist in me believes he deserves to win at least one. Well, maybe not this one. I am excited to see if we get vintage Sergio choke artist at some point this weekend, but either way he will be exciting to watch.

Notable Cuts (That may cost me a lot of money)
Tyrrell Hatton, my gut guy for DK, did not play well. That is putting it delicately, because he finished at 14-over good enough for 90th (out of 93). Why is this troublesome to me? Well if you look at my $3.5 Fantasy Golf Millionaire Draftkings lineup for this week, you will see my 5 other guys are in prime position for a huge payday.
Bubba Watson, another guy who I don’t pick in DK based solely on the fact I don’t like the way he treats his longtime caddie, Ted Scott. With a disappointing 6-over today, Watson misses out on the weekend for the first time in his Masters career.
Freddie Freakin Couples!
Coming into the week all the talk was about Phil possibly becoming the oldest winner at the Masters at the age of 46. How about if I told you that Fred Couples, at the age of 57, was right in the thick of things coming into the weekend! The 1992 Masters Champion went 2-under today making him 1-under for the tournament, good enough to be tied for 7th. In a time where most golfers are a fan favorite, Fred Couples will always be the most beloved at Augusta.
Phil & Fred vs. The Millennials. Who will come out victorious this week at Augusta?
I couldn’t be more excited for tomorrows action. Follow @Foreright_ on Twitter for updates throughout the weekend. Enjoy!
