Masters 2009 Early signs

Masters 2009

Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods have only played two holes but already it's been an up-and-down round!

As the pair try to overhal a seven shot deficit in the final round of the 2009 Masters, they really do need to pull out all the stops.

The first holes saw them both hit sketchy drives. Woods ended up on the 8th, while Mickelson was on the trees the other side of the fairway. Both escaped with par.

On the second both hit second shots long but managed to get a birdie and move to five under.

Lee Westwood - playing in the group behind with Ian Poulter - birdied the first and looks set to make more progress at the second - which is yeilding plenty of birdies so far today.

The only other significant mover s far today is Steve Flesch. The left-hander eagled the second with his chip and birdies the third to move within five shots of the lead. The leaders have yet to start their final rounds, yet signs so far are good for scoring.
