Keeping score


Number of players who were tied for the 36-hole lead Friday at the Masters, a tournament record. All five – Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Francesco Molinari, Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott – are former major champions. They were tied at 7-under 137 at Augusta (Ga.) National Golf Club (scores). Four of the past five winners have held at least a share of the 36-hole lead: Patrick Reed (2018), Sergio Garcia (2017), Jordan Spieth (2015) and Bubba Watson (2014). Danny Willett (2016) was tied for eighth through 36 holes. However, in the past 82 Masters Tournaments, the second-round leader/co-leader has gone on to win only 32 times.


Number of players – 61 professionals and four amateurs – who made the 3-over 147 cut Friday at the Masters, from a starting field of 87 players. The low 50 scorers and ties and those within 10 strokes of the lead qualify for weekend play at Augusta National (tee times).
