HIGHLIGHTS-Golf-U.S. Masters Day Two

Reuters

AUGUSTA, Georgia, April 7 (Reuters) - Latest news from second round of the 81st U.S. Masters on Friday.

GRACE MAKES EAGLE AT PAR-FIVE 15TH

South Africa's Branden Grace made an eagle at the par-five 15th hole to move to four over and give himself breathing room with the projected cut at six over par.

MICKELSON MAKES MOVE

Three-times Masters champion Phil Mickelson made his fifth birdie of the day at the 13th hole to reach three under par, one stroke behind the clubhouse leaders.

GARCIA, HOFFMAN CO-LEADERS IN CLUBHOUSE

Spaniard Sergio Garcia fired a three-under-par 69 to reach four under for the tournament and move into a share of the lead with overnight leader Charley Hoffman (75).

SCORING CHANGE GIVES GARCIA BOOST

Garcia's bid for a maiden major appeared to take a hit when scoreboards showed he made a triple-bogey at the par-four 10th. It was changed back to a bogey since Garcia, who hit a provisional ball after a poor tee shot, found his original ball, which had ricocheted off a tree and into the fairway.

STENSON AT RISK OF MISSING CUT

Swedish world number five Henrik Stenson shot a three-over 75, falling to eight over par for the tournament and also certainly missing the cut, which is projected at six over par.

COUPLES THREE SHOTS BEHIND LEADER

Former champion Fred Couples birdied two of his first three holes to get to one under for the tournament and three shots behind leader Charley Hoffman.

WILLETT IN DANGER OF MISSING CUT

Defending champion Danny Willett made a quadruple-bogey at the first hole before mixing a birdie with three bogeys to finish at seven over and likely to miss the cut.

FOWLER MAKES EARLY EAGLE IN HOT START

Rickie Fowler holed out from a greenside bunker for an eagle at the par-five second hole before carrying that momentum to the third where he made birdie to reach two under, two shots off the lead.
