Augusta Masters: Scottie Scheffler takes lead at Augusta Masters

The wind that howled as it shook the Georgia pines gave all the trouble imaginable on Friday to Tiger Woods and several other golfers at the Masters. And then Scottie Scheffler made the challenge seem even greater.

In his debut as the new world ranking leader, Scheffler looked like one. He did not incur a single bogey over the last 15 holes and signed a card of 67 strokes, five under par, equaling the Masters record.

Only four other players in the history of the prestigious tournament have been five shots ahead after 36 holes. The most recent was Jordan Spieth in 2015.

Woods is nine shots behind. Facing a challenge still recovered from the legs after the serious car accident he suffered last year.
