Jason Day leads the Masters after the second round Day shot a 4-under 68 Friday for a 6-under 138 total. That gives him a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples and Marc Leishman.

14-year-old Guan Tianlang has become the youngest player to make the cut in PGA Tour history.

Guan is 10 shots off the lead--just good enough to make the cut. His margin of error would have been larger if not for the one-stroke penalty he received for slow play.

The Chinese eighth-grader was already the youngest player in Masters history. Now, he's reached another milestone--two more rounds in the first major of the year.

Tiger Woods surged to a share of the lead, but a tough finish knocked him three strokes behind.

Woods looked like he would be in the final group heading into the 15th hole. He was at -5 and nearly holed in his third shot on the par-5 hole. His ball hit the flagstick and then went into the water. Woods hit nearly the identical shot and made a bogey.

Woods also three-putted the 18th hole for the first time in his career, finishing with a disappointing bogey that left him three shots behind the leader at -3.
