Finau rockets into Masters lead with blistering front nine

Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy

Rory Mc Ilroy was in the final pair last year but finished tied fifth as American Patrick Reed won his first major

The man - yet to be identified - did hit Woods on his right foot, leading the 14-time major victor to jump in the air several times before limping back to the fairway.

Tiger Woods celebrates after making a putt for birdie on the 15th.

The top of the Masters leaderboard is a crowded place after two rounds, with Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen in a five-way tie for the lead.

The Masters has finished on a Monday just five times, most recently in 1983 when Seve Ballesteros won his second green jacket.

An injury-hampered career very almost saw Woods retire from the sport, though a resurgence in the last 12 months has put the former World No 1 firmly in contention. Woods returned to miss the putt, and then took three shots from 35 feet behind the par-5 13th green to lose another prime birdie opportunity.

McIlroy was also less than happy with his tee shot on the par-three fourth, but holed from 32 feet for an unlikely birdie, only to then drop shots on the sixth, seventh and ninth, where his approach plugged in the top of a greenside bunker.

It's the first time three players have shot 64 or better in a single round of the Masters.The tournament record is 63. He was particularly happy to finish, especially after storms moved into the area and stopped play right after his tee shot into 5 feet on the risky par-3 12th.

He turned in a bogey-free round that includes six birdies and an eagle at No. 8, giving him a one-stroke lead when he left the course.

World number one Justin Rose missed the cut for the first time in 14 Augusta appearances at 148 after a second-round 73. He still was within four shots, along with Justin Thomas, who had a 68. Former victor Trevol Immelman finished at two over while Branden Grace was at three over for the day.
