US Masters Best Shots 2019 – Round Two

Round three of the Masters is in the books and Open champion Francesco Molinari takes a two-stroke lead into the final round.

We saw some phenomenal golf on Saturday, mainly from Molinari but Tony Finau too who shot 64 and Tiger Woods who posted a 67.

Below, we pick out some of the best shots from day one at Augusta National, including Molinari’s stunning bunker shot on 18 and Tony Finau’s near-albatross on the par-5 8th hole.

US Masters Best Shots 2019 – Round Three:

Tiger Woods birdies on 6 and 7

Woods rolled in a lovely putt on the 6th for birdie and then stiffed it on 7 for a tap-in birdie…

Rickie Fowler chip-in eagle on 13

This got Rickie to within two of the lead at the time…

McIlroy birdie on 4

Rory made a two on the difficult fourth hole with this tram-liner.

Molinari birdie on 14

Not the greatest putt ever seen but still, this was clutch from Molinari. He hit a beautiful approach to the 14th and rolled in a downhill, right-to-lefter perfectly centre-cup to take the outright lead.

Woods birdie putt on 16

Again, not the greatest shot in the world but under the circumstances this was equally clutch from Tiger. Late on Saturday afternoon at Augusta faced with a testing downhill left-to-righter for birdie on 16…no problems!

Molinari birdie on 15

Again, another putt and this was probably the moment we all realised that Molinari is playing his best golf yet again. He was slightly long in two at the par-5 15th and had this downhill left-to-righter for birdie. It was never anywhere else.

The two best shots of day three –

Tony Finau eagle on 8th hole

The American came THIS close to making an albatross!

I will say that this was the tied-best shot of the day along with Finau’s near-albatross on 8. Molinari was two clear with the last to play and found the front-left bunker in two, with the pin right at the back of the green. He hit a sublime shot to within two or three feet to keep his two stroke margin heading into Sunday.

US Masters Best Shots 2019 – Round Two:

Tiger Woods birdie on 15

Forced to lay up after pulling his drive left, Woods made up for it with this superb birdie putt up the hill.

Rory McIlroy’s 50ft birdie putt on 16

It wasn’t the best of days for Rory but this 50 footer made sure that he would have no worries of missing the cut.

Justin Thomas chip-in birdie on 6

Justin Thomas chip-in eagle at the 15th

Kevin Mitchell hole-out eagle on 7

Rory McIlroy tee shot on 4th

Dustin Johnson chip-in birdie at 13

Adam Scott eagle on 15

The video doesn’t actually show you but his 2-iron was without doubt one of the shots of the day, especially when you consider that it came after a 45-minute delay due to lightning.

US Masters Best Shots 2019 – Round One:

Phil Mickelson’s near-ace on 16

Lefty came THIS close to making the first hole-in-one of the 2019 Masters…

Bryson DeChambeau’s near-ace on 16

The Golfing Scientist also nearly made a hole-in-one on the par-3 16th…

DeChambeau’s chip-in on 17

After birdies at 13, 15 and 16, the five-time PGA Tour winner then chipped in for birdie on the 17th…

Patton Kizzire’s eagle on 2

The American’s chip-in on the 2nd was the first eagle of the 2019 Masters…

McIlroy’s birdie on 16

He didn’t have his best stuff on Thursday but this 35ft birdie putt on 16 helped the cause…

Tiger Woods’ birdie on 14

Woods made back-to-back birdies on 13 and 14. This one was impressive after his drive found the trees down the left…

Koepka’s birdie putt on 12

The three-time Major winner putted it in from off the green on the famous 12th for a 2…

And shot of the day goes to…

Bryson DeChambeau for almost making a 2 at the 18th…

DeChambeau and Koepka both lead at six under par after round one.

Phil Mickelson is just one back after a 67, which is his lowest opening round at Augusta since 2010…when he won his third Green Jacket.
