Els avoids early exit by departing major champs
Uihlein, the U.S. Amateur champ who was paired with Mickelson and Geoff Ogilvy, was a little kinder, running ahead of the group to give Smith an encouraging hug. He might have been better off saving those well-wishes for himself. Uihlein blistered his second shot on No. 9 so badly it landed about 25 yards in front of the No. 1 tee.
“I was hoping to make the cut and didn’t do that, didn’t play well. And I didn’t hit my irons very good,” said Uihlein, who finished at 5 over. “You’ve got to be very precise out here with the irons, and I just wasn’t quite ready for it.”
GUIDED TOUR: Charl Schwartzel might have to give Jack Nicklaus a cut of his earnings this week.
The six-time Masters champion gave Schwartzel invaluable advice before the South African’s first appearance at Augusta National last year, talking him through the course.
Nicklaus “took me through every single hole the way he used to play it,” Schwartzel said. “You can’t get much better advice than that. … I was in such awe.”
Schwartzel has put the advice to good use, shooting par or better in four of his six rounds at the Masters. His 71 on Friday left him at 4 under, six strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy.
