Former Masters champion Zach Johnson and eight other players owe Adam Scott an expensive dinner.
Scott looked like he’d end up the solo leader at The Masters until he missed a two-footer for par at the 16th hole. He went from eight-under par back to seven and that miss let Johnson and eight others at three-over par in for the final 36-holes.
Among them were two amateurs — Devon Bling and Takumi Kanaya.
Not among them was the world’s No. 1 player — Justin Rose. Rose choked on a four-footer for par at the 18th hole Friday and after rounds of 75-73, he won’t be around for the finish of the 2019 Masters.
He made the cut but it certainly looks like Rory McIlroy won’t be winning the career Grand Slam. After rounds of 73-71, McIlroy finds himself at even par and unless he starts shooting in the low 60s over the weekend, he’s going to be seeing someone else slip on the Green Jacket.
Comeback of the day belonged to Jordan Spieth. The 2015 Masters champion looked like he’d be headed home early after an opening 75 but he fought back hard on Friday with a four-under par 68 that got him into red number at one-under.
