AUGUSTA, Ga. – Utah native Tony Finau didnt have his best performance on the second day of the 2024 Masters Tournament but he still made the cut.

Finau was tied for 17th after the first day and fell down to T44 going into the third round.

Tony Finau’s Round Two At Augusta National

After starting the second day with three straight pars, Finau looked like he would hold onto his top-20 spot.

His first slip-up came on the fourth hole when he took five shots to find the hole on a par-3.

Finau made a birdie on hole 7 but his progress was quickly erased with a bogey on hole 8.

He finished the front nine at two-over-par.

Windy conditions were not kind to Finau or any of the other golfers.

With wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour, every shot had a level of unpredictability.

This was especially true for Finau on the back nine.

He recorded a bogey on holes 10, 11, and 12.

Birdies on 13 and 15 stopped the bleeding a bit. But, a double-bogey on 17 and a bogey on 18 resulted in Finau finishing at six-over-par on the second day.

Once again, putting was the main problem for Finau.

He averaged 1.78 putts per green in regulation compared to 1.63 from the field.

Finau was more consistent with his tee-offs compared to the first round. He hit 57% of fairways on Thursday compared to 71% on Friday.
