Augusta, GA (Sports Network) - Jason Day put together the best round of the day on Friday, while playing in the final group at the Masters.
Day carded a 4-under 68 to take the lead after 36 holes at Augusta National. He finished two rounds at 6-under-par 138.
The Australian finished second at the Masters and U.S. Open in 2010. They are his best finishes in the majors.
Fan favorite Fred Couples carded a 1-under 71 and he shares second place with another Australian, first-round co-leader Marc Leishman, who tripped to a 1- over 73.
Angel Cabrera, a two-time major champion, posted a 3-under 69 earlier in the day to climb to minus-4. He was joined in fourth place by Brandt Snedeker (70) and Jim Furyk (71).
Four-time Masters winner Tiger Woods had an unlucky break late in his round. His third shot caromed off the flagstick on No. 15 and back into the water. That led to a bogey, and he 3-putted for another bogey at the last for a 1- under 71. Woods is tied for seventh at 3-under 141 with six others, including Adam Scott (72), Lee Westwood (71) and Justin Rose (71).
