Masters 2014: Ex-champ Larry Mize shoots 72, will likely make cut
Former Masters champ Larry Mize is a great story and he will likely play the weekend at Augusta for just the third time since 2000.
Augusta native Larry Mize won the 1987 Masters in about as dramatic fashion as you could imagine, by chipping in on the 11th hole in a playoff.
Since then he hasn't done much at the Masters, though (just two top 10 finishes) and he's only made two cuts since 2000.
That will change on Friday as Mize will likely make it three in the last 14 years. Mize shot an even-par 72 on Friday to follow up his 74 from Thursday and when he finished he was within the top 50 (and ties) and well within 10 shots of the lead.
With the scoring average at 73.27 for the second round when Mize finished, it's hard to see that changing.
Mize likely won't be the only old-timer to make the cut, either. Fred Couples and Miguel Angel Jimenez are also in the hunt on Friday.
