AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A brief look at the second round of the Masters on Friday:

LEADING: Jordan Spieth at 4-under 140.

CHASING: Rory McIlory, whose 71 was one of the few sub-par rounds, was a stroke back.

SHOT(S) OF THE DAY: Bryson DeChambeau hit his first tee shot at No. 18 out of bounds, and banged his second so far left, he took an unplayable lie. The amateur made a triple bogey for a 72, leaving him four strokes behind playing partner Spieth.

STAT OF THE DAY: Angel Cabrera, who won in 2009 and lost in a playoff in 2013, is at 2-over heading into the weekend. On consecutive days at the par-5 15th, he made a quadruple-bogey 9 and a double-bogey 7. Had the Argentine made pars both days, the six saved strokes would have left him tied with Spieth.

NOTEWORTHY: Stretching back to his wire-to-wire win in 2015, Spieth has led for six consecutive rounds, a Masters record.

QUOTEWORTHY: “The guys that played well got rewarded and the guys who did dumb stuff like I did shot a big number.” - Phil Mickelson, whose 79 put him on the wrong side of the cut line.

TEE TIMES: Bernhard Langer and Jason Day, 1:30 p.m.; Sergio Garcia and Danny Willett, 2:10 p.m.; Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, 2:50 p.m.

TELEVISION: Saturday, 3-7 p.m., CBS.
