Six things to know after 36 holes of the 2019 Masters where five players share the lead at 7-under par.

  1. The five atop the big white and green scoreboards at Augusta National are all major champions including Francesco Molinari (67), Brooks Koepka (71), Jason Day (67), Adam Scott (68), and Louis Oosthuizen (66). The five-way tie is a new tournament record for 36 holes.
  2. One back were two more major winners in Tiger Woods (68) and Dustin Johnson (70).
  3. The day’s low round went to Xander Schauffele, who posted eight birdies en route to a 7-under 65.
  4. Seeking to become the sixth player in history to complete the career grand slam, Rory McIlroy shot 71 to sit even-par 144, good for T36.
  5. The day’s biggest turnaround went to Matthew Fitzpatrick, who followed up a first-round 78 with a day-two 67 – an 11 stroke swing.
  6. Two-time Masters winner Bernhard Langer posted a 72 to sit 1-under par through two rounds. The 61-year old German star was the only player over 50 to make the cut.

  • Cut: The cut was 3-over 147. A total of 65 players made the weekend, including 61 pros and four amateurs, from a field of 81 pros and six ams.
  • Cut Rules: After 36 holes, the low 50 (and ties), and those within 10 strokes of the lead play the final two rounds.
