  • Hello and welcome along to The Independent’s live coverage of The Masters 2014.

    The world’s best golfers descend back on the beautiful Augusta National Park for day two in the chase for the famous Green Jacket.
    Bill Haas’ four under was the best round on day one and good enough to hold a one shot lead over Adam Scott, Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen in second place. There is a group of players just behind the early leaders all with a good shot to climbing the leader board today and Rory McIlroy is among them.

    Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose and Luke Donald all day poor first days yesterday as the Augusta got up to her old tricks and caught many of the top players out.

    Who is going to make that cut though and what will today bring? Sit back, relax and enjoy a feast of golf at its very finest from one of the most spectacular settings in all of sport. We want to hear from you too. Hit the ‘Make a comment’ button below and we’ll post the best ones.

  • DAY 2: Back at the home, the mecca of golf, the perfect Augusta National Park. Set in the heart of Georgia, the course is looking wonderful on the second day of this year’s tournament. The snooker-table greens framed with springtime flowers in full bloom, corridors of giant trees and pristine white sand bunkers glittering along the way. It really is a lovely place to play and watch some fine sport.

    The course caught many out yesterday with the hot sun baking the greens and making them lightning fast and many players had tricky wind condition to deal with as well. But, whose going to be the one to deal with everything the best and post that magic score going into the weekend?

    Augusta is where legends can be made, history is forged and the best can take their place among the sport’s elite. Da, da, daaaa. Sorry, getting a bit carried but it’s hard not too on a weekend of sport like this one! Let the games resume!

  • THE COURSE: Before we get going properly, how about a little reminder of the course, shall we? Augusta. The most famous of all golf courses and probably the most beautiful setting in all of sport. From Amen corner, Rae’s Creek and Eisenhower’s Tree, there’s plenty to get stuck on but plenty of opportunity to become a legend and even more chances to make mistakes. What’s the deal with the famous 18 holes then?

    1. Tea Olive, 445 yards, par 4
    2. Pink Dogwood, 575 yards, par 5
    3. Flowering Peach, 350 yards, par 4
    4. Flowering Card Apple, 240 yards, par 3
    5. Magnolia, 455 yards, par 4
    6. Juniper, 180 yards, par 3
    7. Pampas, 450 yards, par 4
    8. Yellow Jasmine, 570 yards, par 5
    9. Carolina Cherry, 460 yards, par 4
    10. Camellia, 495 yards, par 4
    11. White Dogwood, 505 yards, par 4
    12. Golden Bell, 155 yards, par 3
    13. Azalea, 510 yards, par 5
    14. Chinese Fir, 440 yards, par 4

    16. Redbud, 170 yards, par 3
    17. Nandina, 440 yards, par 4
    18. Holly, 465 yards, par 4
    4/11/2014 3:04:18 PM

  • Our man Kev was out good and early this morning seeing how Augusta is looking for the second day of action, more from him throughout the action
    4/11/2014 3:06:51 PM
  • MARC LEISHMAN: And, here we go the first big mover of the day is Leishman and what a start it is. The Aussie opens up with three birdies from his opening three holes to take top the table!
    4/11/2014 3:11:41 PM
  • ELSEWHERE: Bubba's continuing his steady, accurate style today, posting all pars so far. Louis Oosthuizen, another big performer yesterday, is a bit here and there but still at two under as he approaches the turn.
    4/11/2014 3:14:11 PM
  • TEE TIMES: The pairings are the same as yesterday but the tee times have been switched around. Good for some, more added pressure for others. Bubba Watson and his group got going at 2:57pm with Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose teeing off at 3.30pm.
    Lee Westwood, out last yesterday, began at 3.41pm today. Our current leader, Bill Haas kicks off at 6:15pm and Adam Scott (6:48pm) and Rory McIlroy (6:59pm) will finish things off.

    4/11/2014 3:16:45 PM

  • In the pink! Sergio and Luke are look very dapper today 

    4/11/2014 3:21:34 PM
  • LUKE DONALD: You've just seen him, so how about a little update. The Brit is going well today clawing back some points with two early birdies, can it last, will it make difference or is Luke out already?
    4/11/2014 3:24:11 PM
  • PROJECTED CUT: So, that all important cut. At the moment it's at seven over and worse, it may change due to what happens later, we'll keep you updated.

    4/11/2014 3:28:48 PM
  • KEVIN STREELMAN: More good news for the yanks as Streelman starts to find his straps. He is up to two under with two left in his round and looking good. 
    4/11/2014 3:32:00 PM

  • Marc Leishman is making a go of it today 

    4/11/2014 3:34:12 PM

  • Bubba's out again, going nicely 

    4/11/2014 3:35:49 PM
  • MARC LEISHMAN: He's been here and there today has Leishman. Played five holes so far and not a par to be seen. Back-to-back bogeys on the fourth and fifth mean he slips to second and Haas, still in the haas, is our leader again.
    4/11/2014 3:38:05 PM
  • KEVIN STADLER: We have another in one in the race for second place. Haas up top but behind him Stadler birdies early on to join the number two party.
    4/11/2014 3:41:54 PM

  • Sorry to all those out there working, will try my upmost to keep your day bearable 
    4/11/2014 3:45:01 PM
  • KEEGAN BRADLEY: Keegan had a colourful back nine yesterday and today isn't going very smoothly either. The American bogeys three of his first four, oh dear. 
    4/11/2014 3:46:55 PM
  • BRIT WATCH: How about our boys, I hear you cry?? Donald has slipped up after a positive start by bogeying the seventh to be six over at the moment. Justin Rose is going steady and a birdie at the second is starting to make a mends for yesterday. Perhaps our greatest prospect this weekend though, Lee Westwood, has made a mistake at the third to go to two over. Early days in those rounds but it's not looking great for England to see a Green Jacket this year. 
    4/11/2014 3:50:57 PM
  • BUBBA WATSON: Everyone's favourite pink driver have taken the lead! Bill Haas is joined by the 2012 winner at the top after Bubba's birdie at the seventh.
    4/11/2014 3:55:29 PM
  • JONAS BLIXT: The Swed is back in the mix. Yesterday's early leader has started well with a birdie at the second, looking good early on again.
    4/11/2014 3:57:08 PM
  • READ ALL ABOUT IT: Michael Fitzpatrick had a baptism of fire on his Masters debut with a double bogey on the first hole but did finish very well, read more about the amateur's day HERE
    4/11/2014 3:59:20 PM

  • The patrons always love a bit of Phil 

    4/11/2014 4:01:37 PM

  • Always a lot of love for Bubba
    4/11/2014 4:03:31 PM
  • PAST WINNERS: Just a little recap as Bubba takes the lead, he has been there before but who has been there, done it and got the t-shirt (er, jacket) then? The Masters always throws up classic moments and the very best golf. Here’s the recent winners for the famous tournament:

    2013 Adam Scott, AUS, -9 (playoff)
    2012 Bubba Watson, USA, -10 (playoff)
    2011 Charl Schwartzel, SA, -14
    2010 Phil Mickelson, USA, -16
    2009 Angel Cabrera, ARG, -12 (playoff)
    4/11/2014 4:05:14 PM
  • MARC LEISHMAN: I reckon Marc had quite a few Weetabix this morning, he's all pish and vinegar. Another bogey at the seventh and the Aussie's early lead is now a distant memory.
    4/11/2014 4:08:25 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: First back home today is Kevin Streelman and he can be very happy with his day's work. He is well in the shake up going into the weekend with his round of 71. 
    4/11/2014 4:10:14 PM
  • LEADERBOARD: -4 B Watson (US) after 7, Haas (US); -3 Leishman (Aus) 6, K Stadler (US) 2, Scott (Aus).

    Selected others: -2 Oosthuizen (SA) 10, Snedeker (US); -1 Gallacher (Sco) 12, Jimenez (Spa), McIlroy (NI); E McDowell (NI); +1 Donaldson (Wal); +2Westwood (Eng) 3; +3 Garcia (Spa) 7, Rose (Eng) 4; +4 Clarke (NI) 12, Mickelson (US) 4, Poulter (Eng); +5 Donald (Eng) 7

    4/11/2014 4:11:10 PM
  • JONAS BLIXT: And in the blink of an eye, Jonas is up to the top again. The man from sweden really is playing some top notch golf and birdies again to draw level with Bubba and Bill.
    4/11/2014 4:14:57 PM
  • LEE WESTWOOD: Big Lee is back to where he started the day with a useful birdie at the fifth.
    4/11/2014 4:16:00 PM
  • THE OVER 3S: There's a real precession of players starting to pile up between the three and four over par scores, some big names too. Phil Mickelson is still there as well as Martin Kaymer, Sergio Garica, Bernhard Langer, Ernie Els and Justin Rose. Not the place to be boys! Time to get going!
    4/11/2014 4:19:14 PM
  • EAGLE: Is it a bird?? Is it a plane?? No it's Louis Oosthuizen's eagle!! What a shot from the South African on the 13th to join the leaders. That's our first eagle of the tournament too. 
    4/11/2014 4:20:48 PM
  • LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN: Been a bit of mixed bag from the South African today but that approach shot to the 13th was a thing of beauty. It gave him a five footer and he held his nerve, top stuff. 
    4/11/2014 4:24:08 PM

  • Doing well with the spelling of his name guys! Twitter explodes with Oosthuizen love.
    4/11/2014 4:26:01 PM

  • How about a little pic of Louis too 

    4/11/2014 4:27:46 PM
  • THE FIELD: Starting to bubble up nicely now here on the second day. Still quite a few yet to tee off including Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy who must be itching to get out there. 
    4/11/2014 4:29:20 PM
  • STEPHEN GALLACHER: The Scot is having a bit of a tussle with mistress Augusta today. He's on the same score as he began the day with but four birdies and four bogeys suggest things aren't going entirely smooth. 
    4/11/2014 4:32:27 PM
  • BUBBA WATSON: He is human after all. Bubba makes his very first mistake of the 2014 Masters with a dropped shot at Carolina Cherry, or hole nine to you and me.  
    4/11/2014 4:35:20 PM
  • KEVIN STADLER: We have a new name at the top of the leader board and it's Kevin Stadler. A birdie at the fifth to add to one at the second sees him join our leaders.
