Sergio Garcia Leads The Masters Field After Another Windy Day at the Masters

Garcia Leads In Augusta

It was another windy day on [Friday] at Augusta.  Most Golfers had the same problems as the First Round.  The Field shot over 500 strokes over par in the First and Second Round combined.  The wind played a huge factor in that.  The greens were firmer on Friday.  Which meant difficult chipping and putting.  The greens were faster so if you didn’t putt below the hole then you most likely would two putt.  Only 9 Golfers were under par during the Second Round which meant that there was plenty of room to make the cut which was at 6 over.

While the Field struggled some played well.  Sergio Garcia made a strong outing as he went 21 holes without making a bogey.  In fact he was the only Golfer without a bogey in the First Round of play which was a real feat.  He finished the Round 1 under for the day, 4 under for the Tournament. He sits a top the Leader Board as Co-Leader with Charley Hoffman -4. Thomas Pieters -4, and Rickie Fowler -4.  Sergio Garcia has never won a Major but has been close on several occasions.  The question is whether he can play this well going into the weekend.

Rickie Fowler -4 will be someone to watch for.  He played well in the Second Round with a 5 under par on Friday.  He looked good and was putting extremely well.  In point of fact all the late Tee Time Golfers played well yesterday.  The greens really dried out giving the players better shots.

Phil Mickelson also played well.  He ended the day at even par but he had some great shots.  I don’t want to jinx him and we have seen this in the past from him but he tends to miss really short putts.  His putting was a little off yesterday and he missed several birdie attempts.  I think if he shortens up his game and he makes those, he has a real chance at climbing the Leader Board.

The real story of the day was Fred Couples who played fantastic and was on the Leader Board all day.  At age 57 he could still drive the ball off the Tee and shot well on the front 9.  His putting was superb as he continually targeted below the hole on the greens.  He just made it look easy.  He ended the day 1 under, tied for sixth.  I think that if he plays better on the back 9 he just might break into the top 5 during the Masters.

With all these story lines the Masters is shaping up to be one to remember.  I myself can’t wait to see more Golf.  Listen it’s been a long winter and with the Golf season starting off in April, what better way to enjoy spring than to watch the Masters.  The Masters continues at 3 pm on CBS.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
