AUGUSTA, Ga. - Bubba Watson is playing better than "Bubba Golf."

The 2012 Masters champion has made five straight birdies to take a four-shot lead over Kevin Stadler and first-round leader Bill Haas.

Watson birdied Nos. 12-16 which improved him to 8 under and moved the projected cut line.

The top-50 and ties, plus those within 10 shots of the lead make the cut and play the weekend. But only 33 players are within 10 shots of Watson.
