We made it to the weekend at The Masters, and Oklahoma State golf school alumnus Rickie Fowler is right in the thick of things at the top.
Fowler is currently in a four-way tie with Charley Hoffman, Sergio Garcia and Thomas Pieters, with all four golfers logging a 36-hole total of four strokes under par. William McGirt is currently two-under par, earning him the sole fifth-place position.
Things were not easy in the first two rounds, as the wind wreaked havoc on the golfers and everyone had average scores. Fowler ended the first round +1 after double bogeying the 18th hole. In his second round, Fowler carded a -5 to roar back to the top of the leaderboard.
Alex Noren, the other Oklahoma State alumnus, did not make the cut, posting a 36-hole total of +8. The cut line was +6. Noren was four-over par both days before not making the weekend.
Here’s the highlights of Fowler’s second round condensed into 1:47 for your enjoyment.
