Reaction_300 Hole No. 12 (Golden Bell)

155 yards, par 3

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for ninth, four shots behind leader Lee Westwood (8-under through 4).

Today's stats: 6 of 9 fairways / 6 of 12 greens / 18 total putts.

Hole No. 11 (White Dogwood)

505 yards, par 4

Tiger Woods' second round at the Masters: Hole No. 10

Smiley_300 Hole No. 10 (Camellia)

495 yards, par 4

Tiger Woods parred. A wonderfully placed drive at the bottom of the hill was undone when Woods' right foot slipped as he hit his approach shot. The result was a heavy shot that pulled to the left front of the green. Even so, the long birdie try came to a stop just off the cup's right edge.

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, two shots behind co-leaders Fred Couples (6-under through 12), Ian Poulter (6-under through 10) and Ricky Barnes (6-under through 9).

Tiger_500

Hole No. 9 (Carolina Cherry)

460 yards, par 4

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, two shots behind co-leaders Fred Couples (6-under through 11), Ian Poulter (6-under through 9) and Ricky Barnes (6-under through 8).

Tiger Woods' second round at the Masters: Hole No. 8

Hats_500

Hole No. 8 (Yellow Jasmine)

570 yards, par 5

Tiger Woods parred. Site of one of yesterday's two Woods eagles, a back tee position and cooler conditions left No. 8 not nearly as accessible. Woods layed up, then watched his wedge approach again come up short of its intended target – rolling back some 70 feet to set up a challenging two-putt.

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, two shots behind co-leaders Fred Couples (6-under through 10), Ian Poulter (6-under through 9) and Ricky Barnes (6-under through 8).

Hole No. 7 (Pampas)

450 yards, par 4

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, two shots behind co-leaders Fred Couples (6-under through 9) and Ricky Barnes (6-under through 6).

Tiger Woods' second round at the Masters: Hole No. 6

Hole No. 6 (Juniper)

180 yards, par 3

Tiger Woods parred. Taking aim at a back left pin location, Woods couldn't get his tee shot to run all the way to the back tier – watching his ball roll back down a slope to the front of the green. Now faced with a near-impossible birdie chance, Woods took his two-putt and moved on.

Today: Even-par.

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, three shots behind leader Fred Couples (7-under through 8).

Tiger Woods' second round at the Masters: Hole No. 5

Hole No. 5 (Magnolia)

Tournament: 4-under.

Standing: Tied for eighth, three shots behind leader Fred Couples (7-under through 8).

Hole No. 3 (Flowering Peach)

350 yards, par 4

Tiger Woods parred. Bombed his drive at Augusta National's shortest par-4 into the short rough left of the fairway, but watched his wedge approach check up shorter than he'd anticipated. A 14-foot birdie chance dove beneath the hole at the very end.

Today: 1-under par.

Tournament: 5-under.

Standing: Tied for second, two shots behind Fred Couples (7-under through 6).

Woods_240 Hole No. 2 (Pink Dogwood)

575 yards, par 5

Today: 1-under par.

Tournament: 5-under.

Standing: Now tied for second, two shots behind Fred Couples (7-under through 5).
