Masters Results 2012: Biggest Surprises Entering Weekend at Augusta
Is it really a surprise that Freddie Couples is hanging out near the top of the leaderboard at the Masters?
It has only been 20 years since since the 52-year-old won his only major at Augusta, but he's back in contention heading into the final two days.
Can he keep pace? That remains to be seen, but Freddie is just one of the surprises down at the Masters this weekend.
The 32-year-old hasn't finished better than fourth at Augusta since 2004—and that was his best finish ever.
He's hanging around the top of the leaderboard entering Saturday, and it will be very interesting to see how he handles it.
Since 2004, the best Garcia has finished at the Masters is 35th—he's also missed the cut twice.
The 27-year-old German entered this Masters hoping to change his futures of making the cut at Augusta, and after Day 1 it looked like he was going to do just that. But Friday wasn't kind to the one-time major winner, and he's quickly falling apart yet again.
He came into this tournament rather green having played only two events thus far this season, but if he misses yet another cut it will be a huge failure for him.
The FedEx points leader came into this tournament as one of the hottest players in the game. He's won twice already this year, including last week at the Shell Houston Open, but he hasn't kept that form here at Augusta.
He placed in the top 10 at the Masters twice in 2009 and 2010, but missed the cut last year.
He was coming back this year looking to redeem himself, but never got it together on Friday.
Mahan will make the cut and could essentially make a push, but that would be another surprise entirely.
