Tiger continues Masters charge

Tiger Woods continued his remarkable golfing comeback with a two-under-par round of 70 at the Masters on Friday that left him in touch with the leaders near the halfway stage.

The day before, in his first competitive start in five months following the scandal over his admitted marital infidelities, the American had shot 68 - his best opening round at the first major tournament of the season.

The world's top player had a streaky start to his second round when he pulled his shot into the trees, but recovered to save par and ended his day two shots behind clubhouse leader Ian Poulter in a tie for third.

Another Englishman, Lee Westwood, was a stroke further ahead of Poulter with seven holes to play when Woods finished. He then went another clear with a birdie at 13 before dropping back to eight-under with a double-bogey at 14.
