The Masters: Shots of the day from the second round at Augusta

Tee times start later over the weekend because the field has been cut down after the first two rounds, so even the first players out won't tee off until after 10 a.m.

The former LSU golfer who has played in nearly 20 USGA events has watched her husband play several practice rounds at ANGC but has never played the course.

"To think that in those 15 years, here we are in 2018 and right out of the box Fred Ridley, the father of three daughters - he mentioned that and I don't think that's insignificant - announces this historic tournament that will be women playing at Augusta National". The first 36 holes of the 54-hole event will be played at Champions Retreat Golf Club here before the final round, featuring the low-30 scores, is played at Augusta National. It was that Hootie Johnson, 'point of a bayonet, we're not going to have women members'. Ridley, who succeeded Billy Payne as chairman of Augusta National in October, spoke at the traditional chairman's press conference on the eve of the Masters. Invitees will be determined by awarding spots to winners of other recognised tournaments and using the world rankings.

And Mo was the focus of some of the media's questions. "But of course you can imagine we try everything to make him available". Liverpool can further cement their place in the top four this weekend by beating rivals Everton at Goodison Park.

"We believe this event will have a long-lasting impact on the game", Ridley said. Let me just generalise and say "we". I just felt it was time to do that.

"It's never going to affect my golf, so I'm fine". The ANA Inspiration, the first major of the year on the women's calendar, is held the week before the Masters. "It's fabulous. I can't wait to see how the women handle one of the greatest golf courses in the world". A chance to play in a new national championship at Augusta National might stem the rising tide of adolescents by making the amateur option more appealing.The change may also persuade more female college golfers to remain in school, since there is a new title to chase.

Several notable players need a good round Friday to ensure they stick around for the weekend at the Masters.
