New York, April 10 (ANI): Professional golfer Tiger Woods is in contention at the Masters after two rounds.

Woods, 34, followed up his first round 68 with a second round 70 in more difficult conditions at the Augusta National Golf Club.

At 6-under, he's in a five-way tie for third place, two shots behind a pair of Brits, Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter, both at 8-under.

Had Phil Mickelson not lipped out a long putt on the 18th green, he and Woods would have been paired together in the third round, which as it is, they are tied.

"It feels good. It feels really good," the New York Daily News quoted Woods as saying about being in the mix in his first tournament after a five-month layoff.

"I usually put myself in contention most of the time most years here, and this year I'm right there. We've got 36 more holes and I'm sure the golf course, they are not going to make it easy for us.

"They made it easy on the first day for us and today was certainly much more difficult," he added. (ANI)
