Masters Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Surging In Second Round

It took Tiger Woods a round and a half to make his 2011 Masters Tournament leaderboard move, but the tourney's current front-runners had better take a look over their shoulders. After starting the day with bogeys on two of his first three holes, Woods put together a streak of birdies on holes No. 8 through 10, followed by another string from hole No. 13 to hole No. 15. With two holes left in the round, he's now 6-under on the day, tying him for fourth place overall.

He had a chance at eagle on No. 15, too, with his shot from just off the green narrowly missing the cup, and barely missed a birdie putt on hole No. 16. And this round featured a pair of bogeys, meaning it could've been a whole lot worse for anyone dreading a rush by the record-holder.

Woods drew applause from the crowds as he approached the green on each of his last three or four holes. Tiger's partner Robert Allenby (1-over) should make the cut, while Graeme McDowell (2-over) needs a birdie to make the cut.
