Tiger Woods shrugs off injury scare to sit one off the lead

Augusta National is at the mercy of the field for the third round so far.

Will Patrick Reed defend his title?

He was later joined by four-time champion Woods, who looked a little out of sorts early in his round and followed four pars with a dropped shot at the fifth to raise fears that he would head in the wrong direction on moving day.

Scott, who has never led at Augusta despite winning the green jacket in 2013, was happy with his round. All these questions will be answered in the coming days.

There's a reason there's no running at Augusta National: you might just take out a four-time champion.

But it almost all came undone on the 14th after he found himself deep in the pine trees following a wild drive off the tee. Woods then stuck his tee shot on the par-3 12th before horns sounded to halt play due to inclement weather.

The first five-way tie for the lead after 36 holes at Augusta featured Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen. He failed to make the birdie putt after play resumed.

Woods hopped out of the way, winced and repeatedly flexed his ankle, and then poured in another putt. "Accidents happen, and we move on".

The delay lasted only 29 minutes.

After two early birdies and a bogey, Woods missed an eight-foot par putt at the par-5 eighth hole and seemed destined for an unspectacular round. But he made it up for them with a couple of long birdie putts, and he had no complaints with his position.

Spieth, who has struggled for much of the past year and has no finishes better than 30th in 2019, rallied with a 68 during the second round to get to 1 under par for the tournament.

It's the first time three players have shot 64 or better in a single round of the Masters.The tournament record is 63. "I was just very patient today, felt very good to be out there doing what I was doing". "I'm like, 'It's 10 off the lead and 60 right?' He goes, 'No, it's 50.' And I'm like, 'Well, good thing I probably didn't know that"'.

Justin Hading, who surged to the top of the leaderboard for much of Round 1, was still in the hunt at six-under par.

As for Rory McIlroy, the career Grand Slam might need to wait another year. Two players posted rounds of 8-under-64 and under is 8-under for the day through 16 holes. He was only seven shots behind, but he had 35 players in front of him.
