Masters: Tony Finau Battles Star Golfers, Weather Conditions At 2023 Masters

Apr 7, 2023, 4:12 PM | Updated: Apr 8, 2023, 1:01 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – On a day that saw suspensions of play and trees falling on the course, Tony Finau managed to stay under par through the first two rounds of the 2023 Masters Tournament.

After finishing the second round with a score of +2, Finau’s position on the leaderboard slipped.

He fell from 13th to 29th as his score dropped from -3 to -1.

While Finau was finishing up his round on the 18th hole, play was suspended for the first time of the day.

Finau was lucky enough to finish all 18 holes. Not all golfers were able to experience that luxury as the harsh weather conditions picked right back up.

After two large trees fell near the 17th hole of the course, the Masters suspended play for the rest of the day.

It was later announced that the rest of the second round will be played on the morning of the third day.

Mike Weir is currently projected to miss the cut as he sits in 56th with a score of +4.

Weir’s first round was much better than his second. He was even after the first day but finished with a +4 on Friday. The wind and adverse conditions likely played a factor.

The postponed second round on Saturday morning is Weir’s only shot to make it past the cut.
