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.
Piers Ward from Me And My Golf shows you the changes you need to make in your set up to improve your fairway wood ball striking.
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

Woods, though, is pretty handy from the sand.

5. Dustin Johnson, Second Shot, Par-4 11th
The American made yesterday’s top 5 shots with a stunning approach into the par-5 2nd, and his iron play was equally impressive during much of his second round.
You don’t become world number one without striping your irons like this.
