Golfers at the 2013 Masters in Augusta are plugging away through the second round, and while many golfers are still on the links, a few have posted stellar second-round scores and will look to continue their momentum tomorrow in round three.
With storylines aplenty heading into tomorrow's third round, here is some coverage information to keep in mind.
CBS will broadcast the third round live at 3 p.m. ET and will go until 7 p.m. ET.
Individual tee times have yet to be announced but will be as the evening winds down.
One name to watch as the tournament enters the third round is 2009 Masters champion Angel Cabrera, as he posted a three-under 69 to put himself within two shots of leader Marc Leishman of Australia, who at the time of this posting has yet to finish his second round.
Another storyline to watch entering tomorrow’s play will be that of Tianlang Guan, the 14-year-old phenom. In order to make the cut, Guan, the youngest player to ever tee off at the Masters, will need the 36-hole leader to shoot no lower than a six-under for him to move on.
Guan entered the clubhouse with a 75 on Friday, and is four over for the tournament. Now all he can do it wait.
Making the cut might be a tough order, especially considering what happened to the teenager on the 17th hole Friday afternoon.
The idea Masters would take away penalty because Guan is 14 is silly. Warning on 10. Advised on 12. Bad time on 13. Warned going to 17 tee.— Doug Ferguson (@dougferguson405) April 12, 2013
Per ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski, Guan was "first told on the 13th hole to speed up his play" but apparently did not, because officials had seen enough on 17 as Guan reportedly exceeded his 40 second allotted time.
If Guan were to miss the cut based on the call, it may not go over well with the PGA’s general fan base.
Guan had been warned several times, and the PGA was forced to penalize him regardless of age. In a tweet about the event, Associated Press's golf reporter Doug Ferguson received some insight (above).
European Tour rules official John Paramour was directly involved in the decision, and it is one that Guan’s playing partner Ben Crenshaw didn’t necessarily agree with. In an article on ESPN.com, Crenshaw said the time delay could happen to anyone.
"He's 14 years old, we're playing when you get the wind blowing out here, believe me, you're going to change your mind a lot. I'm sorry, I'm a player, but it is not easy to get around this golf course the way it's set up for [these] two days.We're playing threesomes. We used to play twosomes on the first two days. So everybody is taking their time. It's difficult."
As the evening goes on, Guan's fate will be decided based on the performance of other golfers on the course.
