Poor shots, kicked club sum up Tiger's second round


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods struggled for the second consecutive day and followed his opening 72 with a 3-over 75 on Friday at the Masters to drop eight strokes out of the lead.

The round was marred by a poor 9-iron tee shot at the 16th hole that prompted Woods to drop his club and kick it across the tee box. “It’s an easy shot,” said Woods, who is tied for 40th and headed straight to the practice tee afterward to work with swing coach Sean Foley.

Woods' score of 147 is his highest 36-hole effort at Augusta National since 2007, when he eventually finished tied for second place.
