AUGUSTA, GA. -- Italy's Francesco Molinari shot a bogey-free, five-under-par 67 on Friday to share first place after the second round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

Brooks Koepka, South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen and Australia's Jason Day and Adam Scott are level with Molinari at seven-under-par 137. Oosthuizen posted a 66 for one of the best scores of the round.

However, a big stir occurred late in the day when Tiger Woods pulled within one of the leaders.

His 68 left him at six under in a four-way tie for sixth behind the top group.

Woods had pars on the final three holes with a chance to make an even bigger splash.

Scott surged to the front with an eagle on No. 15 before giving back a stroke with a bogey on the next hole. He ended up with 68.

Day carded five birdies over all, including birdies on all four of the par-five holes. His only two bogeys came on the back nine en route to a 67.

Day began the Masters by throwing his back out while leaning down to kiss his daughter on the practice green.

He played his way onto the leaderboard a day later after receiving a scolding from his wife.

"It's the Masters, you need to suck it up," Day said his wife, Ellie, told him Friday morning.

Day, who has a history of being bothered by medical issues, did better than just sucking it up.

He went out and shot a five-under 67 to move into a tie for the second-round lead.

And that had him feeling a lot better.

"I can't complain about it too much," Day said. "She's birthed three children and I haven't, so she's a lot stronger as a person than me with regards to pain, and I just hit a little white golf ball around a course." Koepka, a first-round co-leader, had a slow start to the second round, but finished with 71.

Koepka was two over on the day through six holes, with a double bogey, two bogeys and two birdies. His errant tee shot on the second hole led to the double bogey. He recovered to produce nine pars and three birdies over his final 12 holes.

Dustin Johnson (70), Xander Schauffele (65) South Africa's Justin Harding (69) are level with Woods at six under.

Harding made four consecutive birdies (Nos. 12-15) and added another on No. 17 before finishing with a bogey.

Play was suspended for about a half-hour shortly after 5 p.m. ET because of thunderstorms in the area.

Woods made a putt of about 40 feet on No. 9, then added a birdie on No. 11 before play was stopped.

Spain's Jon Rahm was at five under for the tournament after 11 holes, but never made another move and was stuck two strokes behind the leaders after a 70.

Canada's Corey Conners shot a 71, to sit at three under, in a tie for 16th.

England's Ian Poulter had grabbed the lead at four under early in the day, but he stalled with nine straight pars. Poulter shot one under on Friday to go to five under for the tournament after briefly reaching six under.

Phil Mickelson remained within range as he was one over for the round and at four under for the tournament.

Patton Kizzire was among the early finishers, notching a 70 for the second day in a row. His fourunder total made him the leader in the clubhouse before some golfers teed off for the second round.

Matt Kuchar shot three under for the round to join Kizzire and Mickelson among four-under finishers.

First-round co-leader Bryson DeChambeau dipped to three under after notching a 75.

Defending champion Patrick Reed shot 70 to reach one under for the tournament to make the cut.
