American Patrick Reed, on nine under par, leads the US Masters at Augusta Georgia by two shots after the second round. Reed followed his opening round of three under 69 with a six under par 66, the best score on day two.
The key to good scoring at the Masters is putting well and Reed was way ahead of his rivals in this category. On day two he made nine birdies but three bogies gave the chasing pack some hope.

Australia’s Marc Leishman is closest to Reed on seven under par, after a second round of five under 67 which included four birdies, an eagle and just one bogey.
Some of the pre- tournament favourites are also on the frontpage of the leaderboard but will have work hard over the weekend.
Henrik Stenson is on five under, Jordan Spieth and Rory Mcilroy are on four under par while Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas are on three under.
Louis Oosthuizen is the best placed South African on two under and Branden Grace is on two over par.

Tiger Woods had one of his worst days at the Masters, carding a three over 75 and he finished on four over par after two rounds. It was enough, however, to make the cut for the weekend.
Phil Mickelson suffered even more carding a 79, but he still managed to make the cut which was at five over par.
Defending champion Sergio Garcia is out of the tournament after rounds of 81 and 78.
Other notables not making the cut are Charl Schwartzel, Trevor Immelman, Dylan Fritelli and 2016 champion, England’s Danny Willet.
