Masters through Friday

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Justin Rose didn’t get the memo that Augusta National was playing a little easier yesterday at the Masters. He had to rally for an even-par 72. The good news for Rose: He’s still in the lead. But now it’s down to one shot over Brian Harman and 24-year-old Will Zalatoris (sal-ah-TOHR’-ihs), who is making his Masters debut. Former Masters champ Jordan Spieth (speeth) and Augusta National wizard shot a 68 and joined Marc Leishman (LEESH’-muhn) just two shots out of the lead.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Dustin Johnson is scheduled to be in Butler Cabin tomorrow evening, draping the green jacket over the shoulders of the Masters champion. That will be his only official appearance at Augusta National this weekend. Johnson — the world No. 1 player and reigning Masters champion — bogeyed three of his final four holes yesterday and missed the cut by two shots. He’s the 11th defending champion to miss the 36-hole cut. Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka (KEHP’-kuh) and Lee Westwood also dropped out.
