The Top 5 Shots From Day Two Of The Masters 

1. Cameron Smith, Second Shot, Par-5 15th

The Australian with a masterclass on how to hit your fairway wood – or how to stripe your fairway wood directly at the pin.

This beauty, from 247 yards, set him up for an eagle, which he converted for a nice piece of crystal.

2. Justin Thomas, Third Shot, Par-5 8th

Thomas didn’t have a lot going for him here: pine straws, a bank – but somehow he managed to get the ball up-and-down for birdie.

How about the use of the slope, too… not bad at all.

3. Tiger Woods, Third Shot, Par-5 2nd

The 15-time Major winner looked set to walk off the par-5 2nd with a disappointing par when he found the greenside bunker with his approach, which gave him very little room to work with.

Woods, though, is pretty handy from the sand.

5. Dustin Johnson, Second Shot, Par-4 11th

You don’t become world number one without striping your irons like this.
