Masters social round-up: Sergio's charge, Couples rolling back the years and Grace's brilliance


Sergio Garcia went on a popular charge at the Masters as the leaderboard became far more compact on a dramatic day two.

Charley Hoffman could not match his opening-round 65 and slipped back to four under for the tournament after a disappointing 75, and Garcia - despite being temporarily the subject of a scoreboard error - joined him after posting a three-under 69.

Later in the day it was the turn of Rickie Fowler and Thomas Pieters to turn on the style to make it a four-way tie at the top heading into the weekend, while a certain Jordan Spieth also surged back into contention.

Here's our round-up of day two via social media.


Ouch! It was a difficult day from the start for defending champion Danny Willett...

But there was a popular Sergio charge to warm up the patrons' vocal chords.

Rory McIlroy was doing his best to play himself into contention.

There was plenty of confusion as a scoreboard error wrongly had Garcia scoring a seven at the 10th, but the mistake was quickly rectified.

Meanwhile Fowler was doing this at the second during his charge up the leaderboard...

It was not just the young guns doing their thing at Augusta as Fred Couples once more delighted the Patrons.

Willett was left to rue another difficult weekend as the defending champion bid a premature farewell.

Phil Mickelson was doing Phil Mickelson things and Graeme McDowell could not even dream of following 'Lefty's' exploits.

Branden Grace has not had the best of tournament's thus far, but surely this is right up there as a contender for shot of the week.

Pieters has endured an up-and-down tournament, but the Belgian is right in contention again.

But, perhaps ominously, this man is on the up...
