Justin Rose clings to a 1-shot Masters lead after 2 rounds — with Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas among a group in the hunt

AUGUSTA, GA. — Justin Rose was happy enough to still have the lead Friday at the Masters, even if only by a fraction on a day when Augusta National was more forgiving and he had to rally just to shoot par.

One of them was Brian Harman, barely inside the top 100 in the world a month ago until two good weeks changed his fortunes. The other was Will Zalatoris, 24, who just more than a year ago was toiling in the minor leagues and still doesn’t have a full PGA Tour card.
