Masters: Phil Mickelson trolls Matt Kuchar over caddie pay controversy

Masters: Phil Mickelson trolls Matt Kuchar over caddie pay controversy

Tiger Woods had just punched out of the woods along the 14th fairway when a highly overzealous Georgia Bureau of Investigation security guard, determined to keep the surging patrons at bay, slipped and almost snapped Woods' ankle.

Then there's the man lurking one shot behind: four-time tournament victor Tiger Woods.

United States left-hander Phil Mickelson, who at 48 would become the oldest major champion in golf history with a win, shot 73 in his 100th career Masters round to stand three off the lead. The 48-year-old lefty is four-under for the tournament, three strokes back of the leaders at -7.

"Now I'm just going to rest. I haven't done that, I think, in my life".

Koepka, the U.S. Open and PGA champion, began with a birdie to quickly take the lead, only to hit out of the pine straw, off a tree and into the creek to make double bogey on the par-5 second hole.

Those Expensive Vitamins You Take Might Not Be Helping You Live Longer
Roughly 90% of American adults do not eat enough fruits and vegetables, but many are trying to make up for it by popping pills. And ultimately, the research has found only associations and does not prove that certain nutrients in foods lengthen life.

"That's what I'm gonna do today, hit bombs and attack the pin here at the Masters" Mickelson said. "But we're going to have a great day". On his quick walk to the fairway to see where the shot finished, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent rushing over to control the spectators behind Woods slipped on the rain-slickened grass and slid into Woods' right leg. "Accidents happen. We move on". Tiger Woods celebrates after making a putt for birdie on the 15th green during the second round of the Masters.

But their feats were all eclipsed by Woods, who signaled he would be a threat to capture his first major title since the 2008 US Open and first Masters title since 2005 - astonishing after years of knee and back injuries that made him doubt if he would ever play competitively again.

Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau started Friday with a one-shot lead.

Poulter enjoyed a massive slice of luck when his approach to the 13th stuck in the bank of Rae's Creek and allowed him to chip and putt for an unlikely birdie, but added: "I'm a little frustrated with a couple of missed opportunities towards the end there". McIlroy played the par 5s in even - two bogeys, one par and an eagle on No. 8 that got him under par, but only briefly.
