After a beautiful first day at Augusta, where the predicted storms failed to materialize, Friday began with much cooler conditions.

Lee Westwood who teed-off the day as tournament frontrunner is on the course and is currently shooting level par to maintain his lead at five under.

But Sweden's Peter Hanson, who began the day tied for second place, has just joined Weswood on five under after birdying the par-three fourth hole.

The other man who was a shot behind the world No. 3 overnight, Louis Oosthuizen, is heading in the opposite direction, though, after a difficult start to this second round. The South African hit a double bogey on the second hole, followed by further dropped shots at four and five to make the turn three-over on the day.

Tiger Woods, who shot an even-par 72 after a difficult first day, tees-off at 1.42 p.m. The 14-time major winner, seeking his fifth Green Jacket and first since 2005, will be hoping for better form from his driver after some wayward tee-shots in his first round.

Woods' predicted rival this week, Rory McIlroy picked up and early shot on his second round to begin positioning himself nicely, at two under.

Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson also picked up a shot, on the third hole. to start repairing some of the damage from his two-over par round on Thursday.

World No. 1 Luke Donald is in the last group to get underway on Friday, teeing-off at 1.53 p.m. The money leader on both PGA and European tours last season did not have the best day yesterday after shooting a 75, but it almost got a whole lot worse when at one point it appeared that he might be disqualified.

Donald's scorecard read that he had shot a 73, but it was determined that the error was as a result of a fax machine smudging one of the scores entered on the card, rather than a mistake on the part of the player.

There are currently two players with a share for second spot at four under; Americans Ben Crane and Jason Dufner.
