The opening round of the Masters wasn't too kind for Justin Thomas, but it appears the Kentucky native is back on track. This afternoon in Augusta, he is off to a tremendous start.

Thomas didn't have any trouble driving the ball on Thursday, instead the biggest issue was his putter. However, he still has plenty of time to mount a comeback over the next few days.

Bryson DeChambeau is currently leading the field in the second round of the Masters. His total score right now is -6 through his first 25 holes of this major.

Thomas is taking several steps in the right direction today with a pair of birdies. Clearly he is feeling confident through the opening half of this round.

On the sixth hole, Thomas closed the gap on the leaderboard with a beautiful chip shot. This might end up becoming the best play from Friday's action.

Check it out:

Last year, Thomas finished the Masters tied for 17th place. He is tied for 21st place in this year's event, but that could change if he continues this recent stretch of great play.

With 11 more holes remaining for Thomas, he'll have a good chance of finishing toward the top 15 if he can avoid going over par.
