The Masters Saturday Recap: Dustin Johnson in control after a scorching Saturday | CBS Sports HQ

Moving Day at the Masters turned into separation day as clarity came, slowly but surely, at the top of the leaderboard as 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson broke away from the rest of the field with a 7-under 65 that thrust him into pole position. At 16 under on the week, Johnson has tied a 54-hole Masters record set by Jordan Spieth in 2015. Spieth, of course, went on to win the green jacket by a four-stroke margin.

Entering Sunday, it’s Johnson’s jacket to lose as he became the first player in Masters history with two rounds of 65 or better in the same tournament. He also became one of only four at the event to card a 66 or better after leading through 36 holes; the prior three to reach that accomplishment all won.

Johnson’s four-stroke lead entering the final 18 holes is the largest such lead at the Masters since 2015.

As for the rest of the field, here’s a spin through the leaderboard with a look at those that survived the Saturday cut and remain in the mix, some more so than others.
