Day 2 Storyline to Monitor: Adam Scott Looking to Make Headway in Title Defense
Scott just teed off a bit ago, starting his trek to the top of the leaderboard at 1:48 p.m. ET. He still has a long journey ahead of him in order to retain his green jacket for another year, but the defending champion looks to be well on his way.
The Australian superstar finished the first round at three under par on Thursday, just one stroke behind clubhouse leader Bill Haas.
ESPN noted that his score of 69 matched his first-round mark last year, which could be a great omen for the 33-year-old:
Scott was proud of his near-flawless performance, as per Bob Harig of ESPN: "I was really very happy with the way I played today tee to green. It was really how you would hope to come out and play at any major, and especially the Masters. I was really solid.
ESPN Stats & Info did note that Scott has never led at the end of any round at Augusta, as he needed to break a tie with Angel Cabrera last year to claim victory:

Regardless, Scott is perfectly positioned to capitalize down the stretch on Friday and may end up leaving the rest of the field in the dust at the end of these 18 holes.
If Scott can accomplish that, he will be one step closer to gaining entry into one of the most exclusive clubs in golf history: an elite group of players that have won consecutive Masters.
The PGA Tour tweeted out the members of this fraternity and the years that they won:
Back-to-back #Masters wins would put Adam Scott (T2) on a list with these guys: Nicklaus ('65, '66) Faldo ('89, '90) Woods ('01, '02)— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) April 11, 2014
Will Scott win this year's Masters?
Considering Scott was one of only four golfers to breach the 60s in the opening round, he clearly has what it takes to dominate the course this year. That is a true testament to his skills and preparation in the face of the treacherous conditions created by the tourney’s organizers.
If he can cap off the second day of play with another solid performance, Scott will be in prime position to earn another title at Augusta National and become just the fourth back-to-back Masters winner in history.
