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

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 risky par-3 12th.

However, one security guard failed to take into account the slippery conditions, and slid into Woods, effecting a sliding tackle more commonly seen on the football field than the golf course.

Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen all reached the clubhouse on seven under, setting a record for the most players to be tied at the top of a Masters leaderboard after 36 holes. Woods returned to miss the putt, and then took three shots from 35 feet behind the par-5 13th green to lose another prime birdie opportunity.

"Three [majors] in a row, I've been right in the mix", Woods added, building on his second place at last year's PGA Championships.

The 28-year-old Koepka, a three-time major victor, made birdie on No. 18 to salvage a 71 and stay tied for the lead.

"We have been dealing with mud balls pretty much all week, so I'm going to pray for clean golf balls in the fairway and we'll go at it from there", said Fowler, 7 under after a 68 on Saturday.

Molinari safely negotiated the final two holes in par - thanks to a deft sand-save from long distance at 18 - to remain on 13 under, and he can look forward to another major final round alongside fan-favourite Woods, with Tony Finau completing the final group of the 83rd Masters.

Webb Simpson, who moved into contention after shooting an 8-under 64 that leaves him at 9 under, is hoping for weather to make an impact.

Woods initially skipped away as the golfing world collectively held its breath, but showed no ill effects during the remainder of his round and was just an inch from a share of the lead when he left a 15-foot putt short on the final green.

Spieth, who has struggled for much of the a year ago 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.

That left him just shy of the biggest co-leader pack ever after 36 holes at the Masters, the five one more than in 2017 and 1973 - each time the eventual victor coming from the top foursome.

Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, eagled the par-5 15th to reach eight-under but a bogey at 16 dropped him back into the pack.

It worked wonders as he appeared to be in considerably less pain while putting together a round that was almost flawless, although Day said his wife Ellie deserved just as much credit for his remarkable recovery.

Rose, Garcia and Willett, at four-over-par 148, missed by one stroke, while Schwartzel was two shots over the line.
