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

The Masters’ cellphone ban is a tradition unlike any other ‘Wonderful isn’t

After he hit his approach shot from the wet rough, a security guard ran over to help control the crowd but instead slid into the player's ankle.

Dustin Johnson (70) and Justin Harding (69) were a shot behind at 6-under, alongside four-time Masters victor Woods, who is sitting ominously just behind the leaders as he hunts a first major since the 2008 US Open.

Woods shot a 68 and has plenty of big-name company among the leaders, including 48-year-old Phil Mickelson, who didn't have his best round with a 73 on Friday, but is still just three shots off the lead.

However the South Australian missed a short par putt on the par-three 16th - the bogey dropping him back into a tie for the lead at seven under alongside Day.

"That's what I'm going to do today - hit bombs! I haven't done that, I think, in my life".

Woods returned from spinal fusion surgery last year and contended at the British Open and PGA Championship then snapped a five-year US PGA Tour win drought at the Tour Championship and stretched his comeback story again Friday with no health issues after great play on one of golf's biggest stages.

Aviation minister Suresh Prabhu orders review of troubled Jet Airways
Jet did not mention in its statement whether it was in discussions with the lessors on the present situation. The State Bank of India had on Monday offered up to a 75 per cent stake in Jet Airways for sale.

"Didn't exactly feel comfortable so it was nice to get one at 18 to finish it", he said.

He just couldn't take the next step - one more birdie on a back nine filled with so many chances - to join the largest 36-hole logjam in Masters history.

Can either make some serious headway in the second round? "Accidents happen, and we move on". No one who has covered the Masters for years can remember anything quite like this happening. Tiger Woods celebrates after making a putt for birdie on the 15th green during the second round of the Masters.

Woods leapt into the air to avoid injury and though the security guard seemed to clip his right foot, he appeared to come away unscathed, despite briefly grimacing as he made his way back to the fairway. And now he goes into the weekend one shot behind, the closest he has been to a lead going into the weekend at a major since the 2013 British Open at Muirfield. But he made it up for them with a couple of long birdie putts, and he had no complaints with his position.

He knocked in the eagle putt to move to eight-under par.
