First 2 in the bag 72/71 I just can't read these greens they have way more borrow than you think. This is how me games gone second round nearly holed my tee shot on the fly on 16 hit the flag and finish three feet away walk off with just a par. Better luck tomorrow I suppose.
Started steady but amen corner crucified me, 6,5 at 10 and 11 then par bird par then 7, 5 and it was over lol, finished +6 78. Had a nightmare start to round 2, bogey, bird, bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey to be +4 after 6 then somehow found my game and had 2 bogies and 2 birds in the remaining 12 holes to finish +4 and +10 at the halfway stage. Not good.

Pretty sure I hit +5 or +6 second round being drunk and tired .. I blame Oswinner and the fact that I don't particularly like this course (oooo controversial) 😂😂
I love the course I just find reading puts on those greens particularly difficult on TST I don't know if it's down to the green textures. Some themes have greens I can read some don't I'm reading the borrows just not how much it's gonna turn.
Shot even with at least 4 or 5 putts I should have made. Had two metal errors on 13 and 18 with approach shots but beside that I am ok with the score. Been playing more and getting back to how I know I can play.
Gl to all and happy Masters week! Love this week as a fan/player of the best game ever made.

Played great - missed very few greens in reg. Putting was a combination of horrible and downright unlucky. Had a spell in Round 3 where i lipped out 4 times in 5 holes or something stupid. Lip outs probably hit double digits in total
Still, markedly better than last year.
Enjoyed my rounds - good call going for the medium firmness

Well that's the most consistent performance from me over a full tournament on what I consider to be one of the hardest courses to read greens on. Shot 74/71/71/69 to finish at -3 under it's not going to get me into the top ten but I'm pleased with it if only a few of the easy putts had dropped and I hadn't put it in the water twice on the 11th once on the second round and once on the third round. Yeah I know the guys at the top are like round about the -26 under mark but those four rounds were way better than I could have hoped for before I started especially how I finished last week.
-4 +5 +1 -5 = -3 never play well at Magnolia I just don't like the course at all never have ... I think basically it's too good of a recreation which makes it too hard for me! Haha good luck all those left to play 😀
