There were former three Bulldogs in the field at the 2019 Masters. And all three players will be sticking around for the weekend.
Kevin Kisner, Bubba Watson and Keith Mitchell are all above the projected cut line of +3 and will be able to play Saturday and Sunday.
Of the three Bulldogs, Kisner is still in first as he is at 2-under par. He fired a 1-over 73 on Friday. Kisner picked up birdies on 15 and 16 to make up for the three bogeys he had on the first 11 holes.
Watson once again fired an even-par 72, and he sits at even through 36 holes. The two-time Masters winner had just one birdie in the round, but he did eagle 13. Watson had the best Friday round among the former Georgia golfers.
Mitchell shot a 2-over 74 on Friday. Unlike his opening round, Mitchell got off to a great start as he was 3-under through the first 8 holes. The highlight of Mitchell’s round came when he holed out for eagle on the seventh hole.

But Mitchell’s day came undone shortly after that highlight. He bogeyed 9, 11, 14 and 17 and 18 to give away the work he did early on Friday. He is 2-over after the first two rounds.
Mitchell, Kisner and Watson all finished clear of the projected cut line of plus-3. Some of the golfers who did not include Justin Rose and Paul Casey.
As of publish time, there is a four-way tie for the lead at 7-under. Brooks Kopeka, Jason Day, Francesco Molinari All three have won a major before.
Tee times for Saturday have not yet been announced.
