AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Lee Westwood made nine straight pars to open his second round at the Masters and ended up right where he started – in the lead at 5-under par.
Westwood, in search of his first major title, did have company, though. Peter Hanson started Friday's second round with a double bogey, but followed that with three straight birdies to join Westwood at 5 under on a blustery day at Augusta National.
Rory McIlroy was making an early charge with three birdies to get to 4 under.
Another shot back was a group of six, including Ben Crane, Jason Dufner and Sergio Garcia
