Jordan Spieth holds a five-shot lead at The Masters following a record-breaking first 36 holes at Augusta National.

The 21-year-old American was tipped to be Rory McIlroy’s biggest threat before the tournament began, and he has lived up to his billing by following up a first-round 64 with a second-round 66 to move to 15-under, five shots clear of fellow countryman Charley Hoffman.

Englishmen Justin Rose and Paul Casey improved to seven-under through 36 holes, where they are joined by Dustin Johnson, with Phil Mickelson a shot further back following his second-round 68.

Tiger Woods improved on his opening-day 73 with a second-round 69 to improve to two-under, but Rory McIlroy’s quest to complete a grand slam of Major titles may have to wait until next year after he shot 71 for the second day running to sit 12 shots behind leader Spieth.
