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.
