    Soft conditions at Augusta National led to another scoring bonanza at the 2020 Masters on Friday as 23 golfers posted under-par scores in Round 2. That means there’s now 49 golfers entering Saturday positioned in the red, setting up what should be a delightful day of action on Moving Day. There was plenty of moving and shaking at the top of the leaderboard Friday to whet the appetite for the weekend, too, and some of the sport’s stars shined bright. Justin Thomas put together a 3-under 69 to claim a share of the lead, Abraham Ancer posted the best round in his debut at the Masters with a 67, and both Dustin Johnson and Cameron Smith put together quality rounds. All four share the lead at 9 under as we roll into Saturday.   It wasn’t all hunkydory for the contenders in Day 2 of this year’s competition, however. Thursday leader Paul Casey dropped outside of the top 10 after going 1 over through 11 holes. Tiger Woods, top 10 on the leaderboard after Thursday, slipped down to T22 after a second-round showing of even through 10. And Bryson DeChambeau, after an opening-round 70, is on the cusp of potentially missing the cut as he tries to dig out of an early-morning implosion. He’s 1 over overall and finished 3 over on the day before play was called. DeChambeau will resume early Saturday morning with an eagle attempt on the par-5 13th hole. Round 2 was called due to darkness but will resume at 7:30 a.m. ET with Round 3 expected to begin at 10:30 a.m. The goal at Augusta National is to complete the third round on Saturday. As for the rest of the contenders, here’s a rundown of what transpired from Friday.
