2012 Masters Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods Struggling With Driver, Putter

It hasn't been pretty for Tiger Woods, despite a solid start to his second round. After opening with a pair of birdies on the first three holes, Woods has played the next eight holes at 4-over, falling back on the leaderboard in the process. While the leaders are in the clubhouse at 5-over, Woods is seven shots back at 2-over for the tournament.

The good news, if there any at this point, for Tiger is that he's still got room to make up ground. The bad news, however, is he still has room to lose ground, as well. With a couple of par fives coming up, Woods has a chance to finally take advantage -- though he's only birdied one of the par fives so far this week.

The putter has been the problem for Woods as he struggles with putts long and short alike. Short pars seem lengthy and long putts are getting close, but not falling. It seems everything is off by inches around the green for Woods -- the difference between a solid round and a dismal one.

His driver and ball striking is also off once again -- the same problem he had on Thursday. He's in no danger of missing the cut -- at least not at this point -- but Woods is quickly playing himself out of contention.
