Rock and Manassero fight it out for Augusta spot

Matteo Manassero and Robert Rock go head-to-head Today with a place in the Masters Tournament up for grabs.

Robert Rock beat Tiger Woods two months ago and since winning in Abu Dhabi Rock has slipped from 55th to 57th in the world, but he has this one last chance to climb into the top 50 and earn a debut at Augusta National.

The 34 year old  Englishmen could make it by coming first or second in the Trophée Hassan II at the Royal Palace course in Agadir, although a runner-up finish might see him thwarted by others – Ernie Els included – competing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida.

For the young Italian, currently 61st, only a victory will do and his second place at the Open de Andalucía Costa del Sol last Sunday takes him into the event full of confidence and high hopes.

Rock was one off the lead at halfway last year at this very same course, but rather than grabbing his first victory dropped back to 19th finishing eight strokes behind fellow Englishman David Horsey.

Should be an exciting week of golf, make sure you’re watching!
