The Mexican golfer recovered from the penalty that added two strokes to his card, but fell far short of the 13th place he achieved last year, finishing in 26th place.
Abraham Ancer finished his second participation in the Masters and finished tied for 26th place after four rounds after finishing +1 over par in the mythical Augusta National. The ‘Turco’ slipped in good shape at the weekend despite a penalty and this Sunday ended with red numbers by signing a card of 70 strokes.
The Mexican golfer had a bumpy day. Although he started with a birdie on hole three, the one from Tamaulipas had bogeys on the flags of the seventh and ninth for a first round of 37 impacts, which put him far from the result he obtained last November.
However, he trusted his approach and the second round started with a birdie. The last nine he would have no problems and two more birdies on 13 and 15 made him go into the red for the second time this week.
Ancer It could not match the 13th place it achieved last year when the mythical tournament delivered by the famous ‘Green Jacket’ changed its date so that it could be held, since the pandemic prevented it from being played in April 2020.
The ‘Turco’ trusted that in the future more Mexicans will join to play the most important Major and shared that he was able to see figures of the stature of Lorena Ochoa, who was cheering on the Mexican for these four days.
“I hope that little by little we will be more. I saw Lorena (Ochoa), Gaby (López) and María Fassi. It was incredible. It is a field that I really like. You have to be precise and I love having imagination around the green. It is not just hitting long. I like fast greens. In par-3s you suffer on the tee shot, but when you hit one it’s incredible. This field demands a lot from you, ”he said at the end of his round.
On the other hand, in the rest of the Latin American players, Joaquín Niemann and Sebastián Muñoz they were tied for 40th place with a +4 in the final score. The Chilean, who had a 70-hit Saturday, finished this day with 76 shots as a result of four bogeys and a double bogey, as well as two birdies.
Meanwhile, the Colombian had six birdies this Sunday, but two double bogeys on one and seven took him away from a better score. Muñoz signed a 74-hit card and couldn’t match the 19th place he had last year.
