AUGUSTA, GA. (AP) - Angel Cabrera is halfway to his second green jacket.
The 43-year-old from Argentina made the turn at 9 under and holding a two-stroke lead over his playing partner in the final group, Brandt Snedeker.
Cabrera was steadier than any of the leaders on the front side, making two birdies and seven pars. He won the Masters in 2009.

There’s been a steady rain since the leaders teed off at the Masters.
That’s got to be a good sign for the guy nicknamed “The Duck.”
Angel “El Pato” Cabrera has built a two-stroke lead with steady play over the first seven holes _ two birdies, five pars, and a 9-under total. Jason Day is at 7 under, while Adam Scott and Brandt Snedeker are another shot back.
While Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn is cheering on Tiger Woods again at the Masters, her ex has been on Twitter delivering a shot at the new couple.
Woods was penalized two strokes on Saturday for an improper drop in the second round, hurting his chances to win a fifth green jacket. The problem started when a television viewer called in to question whether Woods had followed the rules.
Thomas Vonn tweeted, “No problem Masters tournament happy to call in and help. You always have to keep an eye on those cheaters.” He added a smiley face to his comment.
Somehow, we get the feeling that neither Tiger nor Lindsey is smiling.
