Marc Leishman not worried about daunting leaderboard entering weekend

Marc Leishman

Marc Leishman is holding strong through the first two rounds of the Masters in Augusta. The Australian is 7 under par through two rounds after shooting a 5-under 67 on Friday and trails leader Patrick Reed by two strokes.

Behind both of them on the leaderboard are some big names: Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Charley Hoffman, Justin Rose, Bubba Watson are well within striking distance. But Leishman says he is not worried about who he has to contend with.

“It’s obviously a great leaderboard. Every year here it’s an awesome leaderboard and this year is certainly no different,” Leishman told ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt after his round. “With the weather conditions with the way they’re looking, I think we’re going to have to worry about what we’re doing ourselves and not worry about what other guys are doing. Just try and shoot as good a score as you can and see where you end up.”

Leishman shot four birdies and an eagle as part of his 5-under round, which was a stroke behind Reed and tied with Justin Thomas. If he can keep it up, he’ll be in contention for the green jacket on Sunday. It sounds like he is well focused on the task at hand.
