Woods Lurking Behind Masters Co-Leaders

The sartorially splendid Ian Poulter is tied for the second-round lead at the Masters with Lee Westwood but Tiger Woods is lurking.

Woods birdied the 15th hole then stuffed his tee shot within six feet of the hole at the par-3 16th hole but missed the putt, keeping him three strokes behind the leaders. Poulter, through 17 holes, is 9-under par, tied with Westwood, who has played eight holes.

The news wasn't so good for first-round leader Fred Couples, who finished with three straight bogeys, three-putting the last three holes to fall seven shots behind the leaders. Couples followed his opening 66 with a 75 on the clear, breezy day.

Phil Mickelson is at 5-under par through six holes while 60-year old Tom Watson has fallen six shots off the lead.

Surely, Tiger Woods is hoping to rename this golf tournament, "The Mistress" so that he can feel right at home.
