6:30pm ET

Padraig Harrington‘s ball moved on the 15th green after he addressed it due to wind.  One stroke penalty or he would have gone to -4 instead of -3.

Earlier Greg Norman melted down at 13, scoring a 7.  He’ll miss the cut.

Angel Cabrera is looking good at -7 despite a bogey on #15.  He has golf balls made of stone, no fear and plenty of power in his game for this golf course.  At this point he’d be my pick to win.   I like the look in his eye and the way he chomps his gum.

Phil Mickelson almost flew his ball into the hole on #13 for a double eagle and had a tap in eagle.  He’s back in red numbers but quite a way down the board.

It was a tearful ending for Fuzzy Zoeller my pal, and also Gary Player.  They both played their last round at The Masters.  I can’t imagine the emotion they must have felt walking up the 18th.

“It was the damndest feeling I’d ever had.” Zoeller on the emotions he felt walking up the 18th at Augusta for the last time.

4:20pm ET

Kenny Perry is playing a great tournament with a 67 today.  He and Chad Campbell are in the house leading at -9.

Tiger Woods bogeyed the 18th hole a 2nd day in a row to shoot an even par 72 and stay at -2 for the tournament.

Anthony Kim had only one par on the front because he had so many birdies.  He set a Masters record with 11 birdies to finish at -4.  How cool would it be to see AK win?

Todd Hamilton is in the house at -6.

It is looking like some big guns are going to miss the cut:  Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Adam Scott, Boo Weekly and Freddy Couples.

2:00pm ET

Tiger Woods has reached Amen Corner.  H’e still at -2. He found his favorite spot, where they’ll be putting a plaque with his name on it soon.  He’s in the trees right of 11 fairway, where he broke the club a couple of years ago.  He was in those trees yesterday.  Tiger has made a great par save on 11.

Chad Campbell is still in the lead at -9 after 16 holes. Kenny Perry is climing up the leaderboard, now at -7 after 12 holes.

Players in the house after day two:  Hamilton is at -6.  Merrick, Baddeley, Mcdowell are at -2.

Players who finished round two and ar circling the drain… and heading for home are Perez and Wilson at +10, Watson +13, O’Meara and Goggin at +7.

1:00pm ET

Chad Campbell has reached Amen Corner.  He bogeyed 11 and 12 so he sits now at -9 in #13 fairway.  Fred Couples is losing ground , at +5 after 14.  Tom Watson has blown up 10 shots and is +12 after 17.  Zach Johnson has lost 5 shots to par, going from -2 to+3 after 10.

11 and 12 on Amen Corner are the two toughest holes on the course, playing at close to 1 over par each.  How cool is it that a 150 yard par three is playing so tough?

12:00pm ET

Conditions are a little tougher today.  The wind has really picked up.  Scores will be much higher today if the wind stays like this or gets worse.  Many players who were in red numbers yesterday are going backward.  I’ve seen three balls in Rae’s Creek (Hole 12) already, including Ian Poulter and Pat Perez.   Chad Campbell is at -10 through nine holes today.

    Norman hitting great shots, terrible shots, chipping in from the bunker, 3-putting several holes, etc….

    Norman really hasn’t changed
