The two big story lines from the Masters continue to deliver:

  • Guan Tianlang: The 14-year-old from China, already the youngest player ever to tee off at the event, made the cut at 4-over. This despite the fact that he got penalized one stroke on the 17th for slow play. (It was windy, and he was taking his time choosing clubs.) The kid handled it with class afterward, however, and said he respected the decision, reports Bleacher Report.

  • Tiger Woods: He played well again and is just three shots off the lead at 3-under. Woods shot 1-under today in his bid to win his first major championship since 2008, reports AP. It could have been better: He bogied two of the last four holes.
  • Leaderboard: Australia's Jason Day leads everyone at 6-under, with Fred Couples and Marc Leishman (another Aussie) a shot behind. Angel Cabrera, Jim Furyk, and Brandt Snedeker are at 4-under, and Woods is tied with six others at 3-under.
