Augusta – Tiger Woods Augusta Nationala was delighted to be in the second round on Friday Masters, who was firmly in the hunt for the historic 15th headline and the fifth green jacket.
LEADERBOARD: 83. Masters – 2nd round
The 43-year-old US star shot a dramatic four-pair pair 68 to split sixth in six under 138 with 36 holes, with one stroke for the record-breaking Masters leading the five-coaches-all main winners – seven-under 137.
"It was fun," Woods said. "I felt like leaving some shots there. The day was solid.
World Champion Francesco Molinari, last year's winner of the US Open and PGA Brooks Koepka, Australian Jason Day and Adam Scott and South African Louis Oosthuizen Everyone shared the centerline.
Their performances were overshadowed by Woods, who warned he would threaten to cover his first major title since the 2008 US Open and the first Masters since 2005 – surprisingly after years of knee and back injuries, which he doubted You're ever going to compete again.
"After three knee surgeries and four back surgeries, I'm great," Woods said.

"I've been in the last two major championships," Woods said. "I'm here at the masters at one time."
While Woods settled down because he was in package 1, Dustin Johnson, American Xander Schauffele and South African Republic were in second place. Justin Harding, there was no doubt that the star was in the crowd, glued to every step of it.
After two early birdies and bogey, Woods missed an eight-foot pair putt on a par-5 eighth hole and seemed intended for an unspectacular circle.
What followed was the vintage Woods and brought chilled bushes that accompanied the first big Tigermanie victory of 1997.
Woods sank a 37-foot bird putt on the ninth, fell in a 13-footer for a birdie at 11, and then lipped out a bird's chance at par-3 after a stormy delay.
At the age of 14, Woods escaped the tree to the left of the waterway, set his approach to 28 feet and stuck testt putty to reach five.
When Woods hit another shot, the security guard slid to the muddy ground and slid into Woods's right leg, causing some terrible moments before the star tested his ankle and walked undamaged.
"That's what it is," Woods said. "The accidents happen. Let's go ahead, I'm fine."
At par-15, Woods twisted into a 30-footer for the bird, interrupted with the right pump fist to make one single path off the lead.
His five pots made from more than 20 feet in two days are two more than any competitor.
Woods missed the eight-foot bird putt on par 17 and missed the 14-footer for the bird at 18.
This left him only shy of the largest co-leader package ever since 36 holes in Masters, five more than in 2017 and 1973 – every time the winner came from the top of the quarter.
Oosthuizen made seven birds in shooting 66. He fired 67 after repairing his back on Thursday.
Molinari in seventh place left 67, which is the lowest score in his 26 career rounds at Augusta National, where his best achievement reached the 19th place in 2012.
"It was a solid day that lasted, and the ball hit well," said Molinari. "I hit some quality iron tracks and when I missed, I missed them in the right place."
Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, gathered fifth in the fifteenth position to reach the eighth-floor, but the 16-year-old fell back into the pack.
"I've set up a good place for a weekend," Scott said. "I'm in a good place to run with them somehow."
Koepka fired 71 in spite of a double disaster on a par-5 second hole, birds at 15 and 18 years old when she saved the pod.
"He did not exactly feel comfortable, so it was nice that I got one at 18 to finish it," he said.
Four-time main champion Rory McIlroy, who was looking for a green jacket to finish the Grand Slam in his career, shot 71 at seven.
American left-wing Phil Mickelson, who won the age of 48 in the history of golf's oldest champion in 48 years, scored a three-time lead in his 100th career in Masters.
