Norman misses cut but four Aussies play on

Greg Norman produced some of his old magic at Augusta but it wasn’t quite enough in order to make the cut. Four of the seven Australians in the tournament made the cut with Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby only just scraping through. I still think he could shoot anything given a decent day with the putter, his eagle on 13 proved that.

Young guns Aaron Baddeley and Geoff Ogilvy have done enough to not only make the cut but give themselves a shot come Sunday. Ogilvy is a big chance quietly doing what he has to do to win this tournament but an Aaron Baddeley win on Easter Sunday may be hard to watch. Mathew Goggin struggled both days on his first look at Augusta, it’s a pity Norman has to leave but an even bigger disappointment was Adam Scott once again missing the cut. He’s really struggling at the moment.

Come Sunday, Aussie Golfer still believes Jim Furyk is going to be right in the mix. Obviously Tiger will be there but Furyk is flying under the radar a little.

Australians left at Augusta
T11 Geoff Ogilvy (-3)
T19 Aaron Baddeley (-2)
T42 Robert Allenby (+1)
T42 Stuart Appleby (+1)

    Baddeley’s current haircut of choice makes any victory hard to watch. Still fancy he or Tim Clark might make a run…and probably finish second to you know how.

    Good blog AG!
