AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) —  Tiger Woods finally has a birdie on a par 5 at this Masters. The way his second round has gone, he's thrilled to have a birdie anywhere.

Woods has overpowered the par 5s at Augusta National while winning four times. He made par on all four of them in the opening round, and failed to convert on the par 5s on the front nine Friday. But he blasted an iron out of pine straw and onto the green at the par-5 13th and two-putted for birdie. That pulled him to within 11 shots of Patrick Reed.

His first birdie of the round at No. 13 followed another tee shot into Rae's Creek on the par-3 12th. Woods was 4 over with five holes to play.
