  • Nicolai Hojgaard Looking Forward To Dream Weekend At The Masters Despite Late Stumble

Nicolai Hojgaard looking forward to dream weekend at the Masters despite late stumble

Nicolai Hojgaard was left to rue a poor finish as he continued to enjoy an otherwise stellar Masters debut at Augusta National.

Hojgaard was one of 27 players unable to complete their first rounds on Thursday following a lengthy weather delay, the 23-year-old Dane having covered his first 15 holes in five under par.

Three closing pars on Friday morning saw Hojgaard sign for a superb 67 and the Ryder Cup winner had improved to six under par after 16 holes of round two, only to bogey the 17th and 18th.

"I would love to play 17 and 18 again," Hojgaard said after a 73 featuring four birdies and five bogeys gave him a halfway total of four under par.

"I don't feel like I hit a bad shot on the last two holes. Maybe the tee shot on 17, but the second shot felt decent and I ended up in a really bad spot.

"That's part of it. It's major golf. It has to be tricky, and it is really, really tricky out there. I'm enjoying the challenge. There's a lot to look forward to on the weekend.

"I felt like I managed my game really well today, even though I didn't strike it properly. I felt like I was a bit all over the place, but kind of putted myself around, which was quite good to see.

"I just managed to make a couple of mistakes in the end, which I feel like it's very, very expensive at the moment."
