The world number one Rory McIlroy is currently seven shots behind the leader of the Masters 2015, Jordan Spieth. The Irishman will look to improve in the second round today to get back in contention for the title. If all goes to plan, McIlroy will become only the sixth man ever to win every major tournament. He made a decent start by earning a one-under-par 71 in round one, however Jordan Spieth, the man who came runner up to Bubba Watson at last year’s Masters, has taken a strong lead in this year’s tournament with a score of eight-under 64.
The 21 year old American, Jordan Spieth has come into this Masters tournament in fine form after winning once and finishing runner-up twice in the past 3 PGA Tour events. Spieth will be looking for his first ever major this week, after coming so agonisingly close previously. The American managed to become the first man since Tiger Woods in 2011 to record nine birdies in a round. Tiger Woods is looking for his 15th major this season; it has been some time since he last won a major in 2008. However, the 39 year old has not got off to a great start as he has scored a one-over 73.
England’s Justin Rose made an impressive start to the tournament this year after carding a 67 in the first round, only 3 shots behind Spieth. Rose is chasing his first ever Masters title after he earned his first major victory at the US Open in 2013. Rose, who is in a good position heading into the second round, commented, “There’s really no point in getting ahead of yourself. So much can happen around this golf course. One thing I’ve learned on this golf course is that if you do make a bogey or two, when you start to chase around here to make up for it, it’s not always the best decision.”
