Justin Rose Hits Shank on No. 11 at Augusta National, Salvages Bogey
Through 14 holes in the second round of the 2015 Masters Friday, Justin Rose tied for third place at six-under par -- a fact you’ll find more impressive after you see his second shot on the par-4 11th hole.
Rose finished the first round with a 5-under 67, but struggled out of the gate Friday, making three bogeys in his first four holes. He fought back with birdies at Nos. 5 and 8, then birdied the par-4 10th to get back to five-under par. On 11, Rose drilled a beautiful tee shot 305 yards down the middle. But with 198 yards left, he did this:
Yikes. His ball nearly landed in the upper deck. The upside for Rose was that he salvaged a bogey and quickly put the shank behind him, making birdies on the next two holes to get to six-under par. Here’s a look at Rose’s 11th hole, via Masters.com:
