The Masters Leaderboard: Angel Cabrera, KJ Choi Move Into 2nd

2009 Masters champion Angel Cabrera has played himself into contention for the 2011 title. The Argentinian began the day tied for 18th, but shot a 5-under 67 on the day to rocket himself up to second. Cabrera is two shots off the lead at -8.

South African Charl Schwartzel has also played himself into the conversation at -4 on the day through 16 holes. He’s also tied for second.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy has regained the lead from Jason Day and currently sits at -10, giving him a two shot lead over the rest of the field. Day looked in line for a birdie at 13, but ended up bogeying the hole. Rory birdied and claimed the two shot lead.

Tiger Woods has struggled with the putter most of the day and is currently +1 on the day four shots off the lead. His partner for the day K.J. Choi, however, has played a strong round leaving him just two shots back through 13 holes.

Another performance of note has been the play of Hideki Matsuyama, the only amateur left in the tournament. He shot a 68 today to push him up 24 places in the standings. The young Japanese amateur is from the northeastern area of Japan that was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami is 4-under for the tournament.
