Hideki Matsuyama: the ball struck by the 2021 Masters champion lands in the spectator’s jersey



“It went between my legs, hit my knee and kind of curled up in my shirt,” the viewer explained into a microphone picked up by the PGA Tour at the Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey.

World number one Jon Rahm, who is the defending US Open champion, sits atop the standings with a one stroke lead after shooting a four under par 67 in Friday’s second round.

“Believe it or not, I had my fair share of bad shots today,” Rahm, 26, told the PGA Tour website. “A bit like yesterday [Thursday], I was able to save a few good ones … As the weekend approaches, I’m definitely going to have to correct a few of these mistakes. “

Storm Henri

The Northern Trust is the first FedEx Cup playoff event of the PGA Tour.

The FedEx Cup sees players rack up ranking points throughout the season, with the top 125 entering the first qualifying round.

The field is small with the last 70 players competing at the Tour Championship in Atlanta in September, where the FedExCup Champion takes home $ 15 million.

The final round of the Northern Trust tournament on Sunday could be postponed to Monday due to Storm Henri.

Jordan Spieth watches his shot from the seventh tee in the second round.  Spieth's turn included two eagles.
Spieth shot a 62 less than nine.

“We are closely monitoring Tropical Storm Henri and its potential impacts on The Northern Trust,” the PGA TOUR said on its website Friday.

“We will assess Henri’s track tomorrow [Saturday] and expect to release the plan and schedule for the final round on Saturday late afternoon.

“Henri is currently not expected to have any effect on the forecast for Monday. Depending on the forecast path of the storm, it is possible that the final round will be postponed until Monday,” the statement added.
