Fewer Fireworks At Augusta National Today

The action hasn't been nearly as dramatic early in the second round of the Masters as it was Thursday but the day is still young.

Fred Couples made the turn at 6-under par, tied for the lead with Ricky Barnes, who made two early birdies to climb up the leader board.

The colorfully dressed Ian Poulter (shown in photo) is one shot behhind after seven holes, tied with four players -- Tom Watson, Lee Westwood, Y.E. Yang and Phil Mickelson -- who haven't begun their second rounds.

Tiger Woods made an early birdie at the second hole but gave it back with a bogey at the fourth and is three off the lead after seven holes.

A cool breeze and more difficult hole locations have caused Augusta National to play more difficult today. No player is better than 2-under par in his second round today.

Good grief. I turn on ESPN and they've got a permanent 'Live Update' banner for Tiger taking up 20% of the screen. They already show every shot he plays. Enough is enough.
