2012 Masters Update: Atlanta Natives Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar In Good Position

After the first two rounds of the 2012 Masters tournament at Augusta National, Atlanta-area golfers Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar are both in good position heading into the weekend. The projected cut is going to be at 5-over par and neither Watson nor Kuchar, are anywhere close to being in danger as Watson is one stroke behind at 4-under par and Kuchar is two behind at 3-under par.

Watson didn't have as good of a round as the 69 he shot in the first round, but he still finished Friday with a 71, putting him at 4-under par. After bogeying on the fifth and ninth holes, he turned things around on the back nine, birdieing 13, 15 and 16.

Kuchar shot a 71 on Thursday and was able to beat himself with a 70 on Friday. He birdied the 13th and 15th holes and bogeyed the 17th and then finished out strong with a birdie on 18.

Both Kuchar and Watson are in good position to challenge the leaders, Jason Dufner and Fred Couples, who are both at 5-under par after two rounds.
