Former Georgia Tech and Georgia golfers Matt Kuchar and Bubba Watson are still in contention at the 2012 Masters at 7-under which is two strokes behind Louis Oosthuizen.

Kuchar is two-under through the first eight holes and missed another birdie opportunity on the eighth hole. He opened the Masters with a 71 on Thursday and has shot 70 on both Friday and Saturday.

Bubba Watson opened with a bogey on the first hole for the second straight day but birdied No. 2 and No. 5 to get to 7-under. Watson shot an opening round 69 on Thursday and followed that up with a 71 on Friday and a 70 on Saturday.

Oosthuizen grabbed the lead with a double eagle on the second hole of his round but Kuchar and Watson both are in position should he falter.
