US Gulf Superstar Tiger Woods has had a damper in his comeback at the 86th US Masters in Augusta after his re-annuled preamble round. The five-time tournament winner, which had been around 14 months ago after a serious car accident before the premature end of his career, slipped after the second pass through a 74 in the 19th place in the 19th place in the par-72 course.
Already in the course of the second round of the Californian, the German Altmamp Bernhard Langer (Anhausen) had lost his struggle for a place in the field of participants of the two final laps. For the second round, the two-time Masters champions needed 76 strokes and thus missed 40 years after his debut in the Augusta National Golf Club a total of eight blows over Par the cut. At the same time, the 64-year-old Schwabe could not shrug his own retirement record at the master.
The leadership took over the US world-world ranking scottie Scheffler by a superior 67th with a total of 136 beats Scheffler has a Masters record protrusion of already five strokes on a four-header group with the Japanese priority winner Hideki Matsuyama at halftime of the Majors tournament.

Woods went through a roller coaster ride on the second round. Already on the first nine holes, the Topstar had come across PAR through a Birdie and four Bogeys, but later in the clubhouse for the two last passages was successful: “Hopefully I get one of these enlightened moments and can make it to turn it, On the last nine holes on Sunday everything can happen. “
