Danny Willett and Rory McIlroy left trailing in Charley Hoffman's wake

Meanwhile, defending champion Danny Willett began the second round with a snowman, taking an 8 on the opening hole.

The 2013 US Open victor has been drawn in the 16th group to tee off with the US' Brandt Snedeker and another player who like Rose has finished tied for second place at Augusta, Australia's Jason Day.

Flannels, the luxury fashion retailer, who recently announced Westwood as an ambassador, have put a £2 million price tag on the tournament's famous green jacket if he clinches the first major of the year.

Taking it all in: As one fan or patron, as Masters officials like to say, was leaving Tuesday he stopped to look around one last time.

Johnson suffered a back injury in a "serious fall" in his rented accommodation on Wednesday afternoon after the cancellation of the traditional par-three contest due to bad weather. You can remember shots from the past on nearly every hole on the back nine, some of which doomed and others that boosted each competitor's chances.

After starting with a par, Hoffman kept up his birdie run - he's made six in his last nine holes - with one at the par-5 second.

"So I didn't take my medicine, and hit it about 15 feet right with a club that takes the spin off".

"You are always trying to get better. I should have backed off it and got everyone to move".

'He is a worthy successor' - Neymar ready to replace Messi, insists Sampaoli
Sevilla wasted another golden chance in the 24th minute when a Samir Nasri free kick was headed over by an unmarked Vitolo. Messi bagged a brace after Luis Suarez's overhead kick had given the hosts a 25th-minute lead.

The 29-year-old then chipped to six feet and two-putted for a demoralising quadruple-bogey eight, dropping him to five over par and two shots outside the early projected cut.

"I played some pretty good golf in the middle there and couldn't hole a bean".

After a not-terrible one-over par round of 73 on a hard day at the Masters on Thursday, he came to the tee on Friday looking to make a move.

Pieters had threatened to set a daunting target when he raced to the turn in 32 and also birdied the 10th to reach five under par.

Garcia, heckled by USA fans at last year's Ryder Cup about his lack of a major title, found it easier to keep his cool in front of the appreciative Masters crowd. "I was busy with family life", Willett said, "and I didn't quite realize, in fairness, how hectic and how chaotic it was going to be". You can't just do it week in and week out. "This place changes by the hour", Sergio Garcia said about the constant course changes thanks to spring weather.

"Just mozied around really", he said.

The 29-year-old Englishman is now in danger of becoming the first defending Masters champion to miss the cut since Mike Weir's short defense in 2004. I look forward to it, and I look forward to the challenge the next three days.
