Masters Leaderboard: Jason Day Wins Round, Rory McIlroy Winning Tournament

The Masters Tournament young guns group of Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, and Rickie Fowler has dominated the tourney leaderboard through Friday, with Day (8-under) shooting a scalding 64 in the second round to pull into free-and-clear second place. Rory McIlroy (10-under) remains the leader, going 3-under on the day despite finally suffering his first bogey. Fowler (5-under) is no slouch either, tying for sixth place.

The cut line comes into play, with world No. 1 Martin Kaymer (6-over), Stewart Cink and Zach Johnson (2-over), and one-time 2011 Masters leader Retief Goosen (5-over) among those who won't be competing tomorrow.

Tiger Woods is making his move, scoring three straight birdies in the middle of his round to move to 3-under with six holes remaining. Phil Mickelson just keeps lingering, hanging at 2-under again.

Matt Kuchar is tumbling after a double bogey and various other mis-steps, landing at 1-under with five holes left in his day. Bubba Watson (1-under) earned a piece of crystal for his eagle on hole No. 15, which also helped eliminate any cut-line concerns.
