On Friday the Masters players found out who was in and out, after two rounds of play.  All four Hispanic players made the cut.  Argentine Angel Cabrera, lovely known as “El Pato”  is currently in fourth place with a score -4 under par.  Two Spaniards are also well placed and amongst the top 20 players at The Masters 2013.

Gonzales Fernandez-Caston is -2 under par while Sergio Garcia, who had a very strong start is also -2 under par.  Jose Maria Olazabal survived the cut with a +2 to par.

The Masters cut rule in place since 1957 comes after the second round of play.  Golfers with the lowest 50 scores, plus ties, and any golfer within 10 strokes of the lead, advance to play the final two rounds.

Meanwhile golfing phenom 14-year-old Guan Tianlang became the youngest player ever to make Masters cut.  Tianlang accomplish this feat in spite of receiving a rare penalty for slow play.  Even if Tianlang would not of survived the cut he has already made history.  He is the youngest player ever at the Masters and the youngest at any major in 148 years and of course the only player carrying textbooks in his golfbag.
