Tiger Woods only one back as five share halfway lead at Augusta

Tiger Woods made the largest logjam in Masters history look even bigger by making Augusta National sound as loud as ever.

Woods sank a 37-foot birdie putt at the ninth, dropped in a 13-footer for birdie at 11, then lipped out a birdie chance at the par-3 12th after a storm delay.

McIlroy got his round under way with a flawless drive and an approach to 25 feet but left his birdie putt inches short and then strangely opted to hit a three wood off the tee on the par-five second. Day fired 67 after tweaking his back Thursday.

With the crowd closing in on Woods after hitting his shot, the security guards rushed in to prevent the American from being crowded out.

"It was just one of those weeks, just not quite had it", McIlroy said after an erratic round containing an eagle, four birdies and five bogeys.

A bold tee shot at the 16th resulted in his sixth birdie of the day, and he parred in to stay in a share of second which ensured him his place in Sunday's final threesome with Molinari and his Ryder Cup team-mate Finau.

Woods then managed to make a miraculous birdie from out of nowhere to put himself right into the thick of the action.

Online speculation has centred on one lyric which has Danny singing of Sandy: "She swam by me, she got a cramp". Essentially, it seems like it'll be a whole film made out of the lyrics of the song Summer Nights .

He didn't show any trouble the rest of the way, and didn't find much interest in talking about it after his round except to say "accidents happen" and "it's all good".

With the forecast calling for heavy rain and thunderstorms late on Sunday officials have made a decision to send golfers off in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees rather than traditional pairs in an attempt to get the final round completed and avoid a Monday finish to the year's first major. It must be the hills, because I've been playing and hitting a lot of balls recently with no ill-effects. "I'm in a good spot to kind of run with them".

Having not won The Masters since 2005, fans have already started dreaming of seeing the 14-time major champion pull on the green jacket once more.

Woods had three birdies on each nine, with a bogey 5 on the fifth his only blight.

A rain-softened course was expected to play into McIlroy's hands, but the 29-year-old added: "I don't think this course plays easier when it's soft".

World number one Justin Rose missed the cut for the first time in 14 Augusta appearances at 148 after a second-round 73.

Another former victor, Chrarl Schwartzel, did not make the cut while amateur Jovan Rebula, Ernie Els' nephew, also missed the cut.
