Tiger takes centre stage at Augusta

A severe weather forecast for Sunday afternoon has prompted Masters officials to move up the tee times for the final round at Augusta National.

The 29-year-old was eight shots off the lead as he signed his card, but low scores were the order of the day and the four-time major victor was certain to be too far back to mount a challenge on Sunday.

That shot momentarily launched Scott past countryman Day into the outright lead, before a three-putt on the next hole brought him back level. Cantlay, who began the day nine shots off the lead, moved to within a shot of a group of leaders who had yet to tee off when he finished.

Tiger Woods had just punched out of the woods along the 14th fairway when a highly overzealous Georgia Bureau of Investigation security guard, determined to keep the surging patrons at bay, slipped and almost snapped Woods' ankle.

After an ordinary outward nine featuring three birdies offset by a pair of bogeys, Woods embarked on one of his trademark charges, carding three birdies after the turn to shoot up the leaderboard. 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 unsafe par-3 12th.

Scott was the only player to reach 8 under with a 2-iron into 5 feet for eagle on the 15th, only to miss a 3-foot par putt on the 16th.

Spieth, who has struggled for much of the previous 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.

"There's nothing better than having a chance going into the weekend at the Masters", Mickelson said. "I'm in a good spot to kind of run with them".

But he feels he's getting closer.

A rain-softened course was expected to play into McIlroy's hands, but the 29-year-old added: "I don't think this course plays easier when it's soft".

It was a brief scare for 14-time major victor Woods during the closing stages of his round, following another solid day on the big stage.

World number one Justin Rose missed the cut for the first time in 14 Augusta appearances at 148 after a second-round 73.

But since then he has shown more than a glimmer of his once-spellbinding form, and has placed himself firmly in contention with a commanding 68 in his second round to remain a shot behind the leaders at 6-under par.
