Round 2 of the 2022 Masters Tournament proved to be a major challenge for the star-studded field.
Scoring opportunities were in short supply despite cool and cloudy weather conditions at Augusta National. Just 15 players were under par for the tournament after 36 holes.
One player who was deeply in the red was world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who opened up daylight on the rest of the field as the Round 2 leader.
And then there was Tiger Woods, who wrote another compelling chapter to his comeback story. He will play on the weekend, health permitting. He had an opportunity to finish in the red, but he was unable to sink makeable birdie putts on 15 and 16. He still did enough to make it to Saturday.
“I made the cut, I’m going to have a chance going into the weekend,” Woods told ESPN after his round. He acknowledged, however, that he isn’t feeling “as good as I’d like to feel” after walking the hilly Augusta course two days in a row.
