Day leads, Tiger in hunt, 14-year-old makes cut at Masters

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

AUGUSTA, Ga. >> Jason Day leads the Masters after the second round, and 14-year-old Guan Tianlang has become the youngest player to make the cut in PGA Tour history. 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. 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.

He approach shot on the 15th hole hit the flag stick and bounced back and rolled into the water hazard. He finished with a bogey on the hole.

He also bogeyed the 18th with a three-putt.
