IT was a pretty sensational day at the US Masters from the sublime of Jordan Spieth to the ridiculous Ernie Els.

Spieth continued where he left off last year with a super 66 to lead by two and is now clear 15-8 favourite at Betway.

My main antepost pick Jason Day looked well placed at five under after the first nine but fell apart going home and finished level. He needs to make inroads into that six-shot deficit today to have any chance.

Two of Ace's selections are under par – Justin Rose (-3) and Hideki Matsuyama (-1) – but Rickie Fowler is heading home early after an 80 that included two double bogeys and a triple.

But no one suffered more than Els who five-putted from three feet at the 1st for an ugly 9 that was initially reported as a 10. If you haven't watch it have a look and you still won't know how he did it.

I posted a mythical twoball fourfold that won at 8-1 yesterday and I've got another at 7-1 – including two of the same bets.

Here are Ace Venturer's thoughts and tips for day 2.

He says: “It was a great day overall for the Europeans with six in the top eight but there is still a long way to go. Shane Lowry had a near flawless round and then the dreaded par three 12th reared its ugly head and he dropped a shot.

“In the threeball today Lowry (bet365, 11-8) looks good enough to see off Angel Cabrera and JB Holmes. Louis Oosthuizen had an up and down round and finished level par but should shoot lower today.

“The other member of the trio, Jason Dufner, had three bogeys in the first five and struggle the rest of the day, finishing with a double bogey. Oosthuizen (Betfair, 7-5) looks the one for this trio and I expect him to climb the leaderboard today.

“Austrian Bernd Wiesberger (Ladbrokes, 4-5) looks like he’s got enough to see off Vaughn Taylor and Sandy Lyle.”

    Does anyone think Adam Scott will win his three ball today??

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      the notorious, he could do but Kisner and Koepka are capable players.
      I don’t do threeball betting because it’s usually tough to call and a tie is often possible.
      I’ll try to add some twoball bets.

    Looks like we’re going to have a boring final day at The Masters once again. Jason Day dropping shots all over the place while Spieth is extending his lead. Best @ EVS @ Skybet now. Justin Rose looking good for a place so no need to put anymore on him as I already have Top 20 Finish @ 4/5 and EW @ 25/1.

    Looks as if it’s going to be another tough day on the course. At the moment only two players in the top twenty are under par and one of them is Jordan Spieth. Oh scrub that… Spieth’s just double bogeyed the fifth but Mickelson has just birdied so still tw.

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      ace, just settling down to watch. Can’t believe how easy it’s looking for Spieth at the moment.
      Let’s hope someone can get within 1 or 2 and make a game of it.
      That was quick – Rory two behind.

    • Jordan 6 years ago

      Some bad scores today Ace for a few big guns. Wind seems to be playing its part.

  4. Jordan 6 years ago

    I’ll be lucky if Big Phil makes the cut here!

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      Jordan, at least it’s interesting again. A final pairing of Spieth and McIlroy will be sensational tomorrow.

    • Jordan 6 years ago

      You’re not wrong Mr F. That amateur is making everyone look silly at the moment.

    • Jordan 6 years ago

      What do you think the cut will be? +5 or +4?

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      Jordan, cut now +6 so Mickelson needs to birdie the last.

  5. Jordan 6 years ago

    Mickelson double-bogeys the 15th and 16th ?
