McIlroy continues to lead Masters; Woods, Mickelson, Couples to make cut

The headline:  Fred Couples in contention at Masters

The summary:  21 year old Rory McIlroy continues to lead the Masters.  He’s finishing up his 2nd round and is currently at -10.  Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and 51 year old Fred Couples – 19 years removed from his last Masters title – sit in contention.

The reaction:  McIlroy is playing the best golf of the tournament so far but you simply can’t ignore what Fred Couples is doing.  Most men his age are happy simply making the cut but Freddy is currently just 5 shots out of the lead.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson both sit a little further back but will make the cut and play into the weekend.  Whether they end up in contention for the win again remains to be seen but they’re alive and that makes them dangerous.
