Fowler favourite to claim the Green Jacket at Augusta

Four-way tie at the top of Masters leaderboard

Rickie Fowler hit a five-under-par 67 on Friday
1 of 1

Rickie Fowler is 4-1 to win his first Major after a second-round 67 took him into a four-way share of the lead at the Masters.

Fowler is joined at the top of the leaderboard by Spain's Sergio Garcia, Thomas Pieters and Charley Hoffman, who held onto top spot despite a 75, having started the day with a three-shot advantage.

Garcia, who also does not have a Major success to boast of will be looking for success in his 74th effort to win one of the game's big prizes. He is 13-2 to get the job done with Betfair and Paddy Power.

The Spaniard carded a 69, while Pieters also came out of the pack with a four-under 68.

The Belgian will be looking to become the first Augusta rookie to win the Green Jacket since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979 and is 10-1 for glory.

The quartet hold a two-shot advantage over William McGirt, but there are a host of top names breathing down their necks. Including former champions Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson all within four shots of the lead.

Justin Rose is the leading Englishamn, three shots off the lead.

The cut came at six-over par, meaning 53 players made it through to the weekend.

Those to miss out included defending champion Danny Willett, Zach Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and Patrick Reed.

Best prices: 9-2 Fowler, 13-2 Garcia, 8 Spieth, 9 Pieters, 12 McIlroy, Rose, 14 Rahm, 20 Hoffman, 22 Mickelson, 25 Scott, 33 bar.
