Bjorn makes his move

Thomas Bjorn may have emerged as Europe’s leading contender at the Masters following a well-played 68 in Friday’s second round.

The Dane picked up eight birdies around the course but dropped four shots as well as he moved to three-under par for the tournament.

It left him in a share of third place alongside Adam Scott, Jonas Blixt and Jordan Spieth.

“I’m going to hit some balls for 20 minutes and then go home and put my feet up,” Bjorn said after a 68 which featured four birdies in his last five holes.

“It was a good day. I played well all the way through and felt comfortable on the golf course today. I hit two great shots into 13 and walked off with a par and after that decided I needed to be more aggressive.

“I took the shots on at 14 and 16 and they paid off and it was nice to walk up and tap it in for a birdie on 18.”
