Wang misses cut #TheMasters

April 8: Korea's Jeunghun Wang shot a second straight six-over-par 78 to miss the halfway cut in his Masters Tournament debut on Friday.
The Asian Tour star endured a mixed bag once again at Augusta National Golf Club where he was one-over par through 13 holes after shooting three birdies against four bogeys. The slender 21-year-old then made an eight at the par five 15th hole before signing off his campaign with a disappointing double bogey on his last hole.
His two-day total of 12-over-par 156 was six shots out of the halfway cut mark.
Four players share the lead on 140. They are first round leader Charlie Hoffman, Rickie Fowler, Thomas Pieters and Sergio Garcia.
Asian Tour honorary member Ernie Els is tied 19th after two days on 147.
First round report
April 7: Asian Tour star Jeunghun Wang endured a difficult start in his Masters Tournament debut as he carded an opening six-over-par 78 at Augusta National on Thursday.
The 21-year-old, who is a one-time winner on the Asian Tour, began his day with a double bogey on the first hole before fighting back briefly to get back to level par for the day with birdies on eight and 10.
However, his round unravelled around Amen Corner, where he triple bogeyed the tricky par three 12th and double bogeyed the 13th hole. He bogeyed 18 to  leave the course a disappointment man after earning his place in the elite field for the year's opening Major.
American Charley Hoffman took the opening round lead with a blistering 64, leading by four from William McGirt. England's Lee Westwood is third following a 70 on a day when only 11 players broke par.
Wang's 78 left him in tied 75th position and with an uphill task to qualify for the weekend rounds.
