There's a four-way tie atop the leaderboard at the Masters, but it could get more crowded still.

Half the field will finish Round 2 Saturday morning, hoping to keep up or capitalize on what's already been a record-setting pace.

Moving the tournament from spring to autumn left Augusta National soft and yielding instead of fast and firm, and everyone from World No. 1 and co-leader Dustin Johnson to five-time and defending champion Tiger Woods is rushing to get into the act.

The most notable exception: big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau, whose plan to cut the course down to size is in tatters.
