2012 Masters Update: Tiger Woods At 1-Over After Nine Holes In Second Round

Tiger Woods is on the back nine in the second round of the 2012 Masters tournament and is currently six back from the current leaders, Jason Dufner and Fred Couples, who are currently sitting at 5-under par. After finishing the first round at even, Woods has taken his first step into the positive side of the field, with a 1-over par score, which he got after shooting a five on the par-four ninth hole.

After a strong birdie, par, birdie start, Woods has struggled with three bogies in the following six holes. Many of Woods' struggles have come on the green as he has been unable to finish holes strong.

Woods isn't in danger of missing cut by a long shot, but if he continues to struggle in the short game and fall farther behind the leaders, he could put himself in a hole that is too deep to climb out of. However, we're talking about Tiger Woods, who can also make up the six strokes before he finishes the day.
