Jason Day leading Masters

12:21 pm on 13 April 2013

The Australian golfer Jason Day is leading the Masters after two rounds of the year's first major tournament in Augusta.

Day carded a second round 68 to be 6 under for the tournament, one stroke ahead of the American veteran Fred Couples and the first round leader Marc Leishman also from Australia.

Tiger Woods picked up one stroke today and is lurking at three under par.

The Spaniard Sergio Garcia dropped four shots in the second round to tumble from the top of the leaderboard to 2 under for the tournament.

He's joined by world number two Rory McIlroy who hit 70 today to go with his first round 72.

The 14 year old Chinese amateur Guan Tianlang, the youngest person to ever play at the Masters incurred a rare one stroke penalty during the second round for slow play.

Guan signed for a three-over-par 75 and a two-round total of four over 148 to just make the cut , along with last year's champion Bubba Watson.

The amateur blamed the swirling wind at Augusta for his indecision over club selection which led him to being penalised for his second shot on the 17th.

He's become the youngest player ever to make the cut at a major tournament.
