Tiger Woods is in contention to win a first major since 2008 despite almost being injured in a bizarre incident on a rain-hit second day at the Masters.

The four-time champion hit a four-under 68 to finish six under, one shot behind five halfway leaders - all of them major winners - including Open champion Francesco Molinari and US Open and US PGA winner Brooks Koepka.
However, Woods was almost knocked over by a security guard who slipped on the damp grass and clipped his right ankle, causing the 43-year-old to hop forward to avoid a fall.

Ian Poulter is the leading Englishman on five under, while Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy shot a 71 that leaves him level par but world number one Justin Rose bogeyed the last to miss the cut on four over.

It is an exceptionally tight leaderboard though, with 22 players within four shots of the lead.

The third round is live on BBC Two and the BBC Sport website from 19:30 BST with live coverage of featured groups on Connected TV and online from 15:15.
