Crowded at the top of the Masters leaderboard

The 14-year-old from China isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. And this Masters is still a long way from taking shape. Despite being the first player at Augusta National to get hit with a one-shot penalty for slow play, teen sensation Guan Tianlang still made history Friday as the youngest player to make the cut in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. And it came down to the last shot of a wild and windy day. Jason Day could have sent the kid home early with a birdie from just off the front of the green on the 18th hole. But the Australian was wide left and tapped in for par, giving him a 4-under 68 and a one-shot lead over fellow Aussie Marc Leishman and the ageless Fred Couples.
