The second day of the 2014 Masters Tournament really stretched out the field as many golfers who played well on Thursday didn’t on Friday and vice versa. As many players are cut heading into Saturday, we look back at the five players who made the biggest moves in the second round of The Masters.

There were several players who recorded three or more birdies on Friday, but Furyk did so without recording a single bogey on the day. Through eighteen holes, he had 14 pars and four birdies, which brought him to two under par for the tournament after shooting a 74 on Thursday. The 43-year-old veteran is looking for his second major win and his first green jacket.

Thomas Bjorn: -4 (68)

Although he shot eight birdies on Friday, Bjorn isn’t at the top of this list because he cut those strokes in half with four bogeys. The Denmark native has three second-place finishes in major tournaments since turning pro in 1993, but he’s still looking for his first major win. If he can play a little more consistently on Saturday, he could give himself a good chance for his first green jacket.

John Senden: -4 (68)

Another player who shot four under par and recorded a 68 on Friday was John Senden. The 42-year-old Australian is looking for his third PGA Tour win and first major victory with six birdies on Friday that followed two bogeys to start the day. He’s now in prime position to put himself in content on Sunday if he can play well again on Saturday.

No one had a better day than Bubba Watson, who separated himself from the pack with a four-under 68. That outstanding Friday round puts him at seven under par for the tournament and gives him a three-stroke lead heading into Saturday.
