AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) After two rounds of the Masters it's Brett Wetterich and Tim Clark tied for the lead at 2-under.

Wetterich three-putted for bogey twice over the final three holes and staggered home to a 1-over-73 today. Clark, who was the runner-up a year ago to Phil Mickelson, holed a putt from off the 18th green for a 1-under-71.

Vaughn Taylor is one shot back after missing a five-foot par putt on the final hole for a 72.

Four-time champion Tiger Woods stands five shots back at 3-over after shooting a 74. He's among 22 players within five shots of the lead.

Mickelson improved on yesterday's 76 to shoot a 73 and is 5-over par through 36 holes.

Sixty players made the cut at 8-over, the most players to advance to the weekend since 61 in 1993.

Jerry Kelly, Vijay Singh, Zach Johnson and Justin Rose are tied two off the lead at even-par.

Among those who failed to make the cut are Colin Montgomerie, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, and Michael Campbell.
