McIlroy shares Masters lead, Woods flirting with cut

He happened to be in a threesome with Tiger Woods, whose comeback from spinal fusion surgery led to a huge buildup for this Masters.

With only 92 yards left, Tiger flipped a wedge shot too deep and it rolled off the back side of the green, setting up a testy third shot.

He managed to find the positives.

"All in all, obviously going into the day I feel like I had a better round in me than a couple over, but making the turn I told [caddie] Michael [Greller] "let's try and shoot two under on the back nine, if we shoot two under on the back nine we'll get to four for the tournament and we should be within a couple of shots". "I like it when it gets challenging".

Reed, who has never seriously contended on a big stage outside of the Ryder Cup, had birdies on half of the holes he played Friday.

The world's top two players, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, both made ominous strides up the leaderboard, but Tiger Woods needs something special over the weekend after he narrowly survived the halfway cut following a frustrating 75.

"Six months ago, I didn't know if I'd be playing golf, " Woods said after finishing 36 holes at 4-over par and in a tie for 40th - 13 strokes back of leader Patrick Reed.

Spieth was happy to be near the top after the way he started - a tee shot into the trees on the right and a three putts for a double bogey, and then a drive to the left and three more putts for a bogey.

Reed had a two-shot lead. He came into the Masters ranked 101st in par-5 scoring on the PGA Tour in his comeback from spinal fusion surgery past year.

He can thank a few timely shots down the stretch. But on his first swing back at the Masters, Woods hit the ball straight into the crowd.

The only two players who finished below Garcia in the 83-man field were amateurs Matt Parziale, a 30-year-old firefighter from Station 1 in Brockton, and Harry Ellis.

The four-time Masters victor then fired his approach into bushes over the green on the fifth to run up a double-bogey, and another bogey on the 12th saw him drop back to five over. He turned in 1 over, but things got interesting at the 11th. He had an opening to the green and cleared spectators out of the way, but one of them had left a chair in his path. And the wind laid down, and I hit over the fifth tee [behind the green].

"To win this tournament, you're going to have to take a chance at some point, and I felt like that was one where the reward was worth the risk", Leishman said.

And Woods is confident he still has a part to play over the coming days. "I put it in the right spots so I could be aggressive with the putter". "I'm just so thankful to have this opportunity again". Tiger would make the putt, but it's a crushing double.

He dislocated his ankle celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament on Wednesday and then popped it back into place. He trails only Rose in birdies since 2012 and has played the Par 5s in 52-under-par in his career at Augusta.

Birdies at 14 and 16, the latter producing the loudest roars directed at Woods all day, took him to one over.

"Seventy-three is fine", Woods said. Golf participation fell from 25.7 million players in 2011 to 23.8 million in 2016, according to the National Golf Foundation.

Right behind them are five major champions.
