14 year old makes Masters cut
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. He had already become the youngest player to play in the Masters
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 which is 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. We have not seen the PGA give a penalty for slow play in some time, maybe some warnings but not the one stroke penalty. It must have really been some seriously slow play.
The Chinese eighth-grader was already the youngest player in the history of the Masters. 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. We still don’t recommend that anyone bet against Tiger in pulling off another win!
