Tiger Woods cops accidental slide tackle after miracle shot at US Masters

That birdie took Woods to six-under, within range of Australia's clubhouse leaders Adam Scott and Jason Day, who are alongside British Open victor Francesco Molinari, three-time major victor Brooks Koepka and Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, at seven-under par.

Five golfers are tied for the lead at 7-under, while Tiger Woods is one shot back after two rounds.

Dustin Johnson (70), Justin Harding (69) and Xander Schauffele (65) are a shot behind at six under alongside four-time Masters victor Tiger Woods (68).

"The last three majors, I've been right there", Woods said.

Woods almost holed a long birdie putt at No. 10, and then hit one of the best shots of the day with his second at the hard par-4 11th, drawing an iron shot to within 15 feet. "It really is an exciting leaderboard, fun to be a part of".

"You're going to be tested in a major championship one way or another", Koepka said. He answered with three birdies on the next four holes, including a shot into the 16th that stopped inches from the cup.

Scott, who has never led at Augusta despite winning the green jacket in 2013, was happy with his round.

"I missed a few putts out there, but I'm not too bummed out about it because I hit them on my lines, " he said.
