McIlroy: I need to cut out mistakes

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy go into the second round of the Masters separated by just two shots, but the omens looked far better for Woods than the man he recently succeeded as world number one.

Woods declared himself satisfied with an opening 70, two under par, that left him four shots behind overnight leaders Sergio Garcia and Marc Leishman, on a day when 33 players in the 93-strong field broke par. However, McIlroy was among those players who failed to finish in red figures.

The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland carded five birdies and five bogeys in his 72, and said afterwards: "I felt like I played well and gave myself plenty of opportunities. I just made some silly mistakes, a couple of three-putts on the back nine. I made enough birdies but I just need to cut those mistakes out and I'll be fine."

He added: "I turned in two under par and everything felt good. That was the story of the day; any time I got a bit of momentum I gave it straight back. Around this course you really can't do that."

Woods has started with a 70 on four previous occasions at Augusta National, going on to win in 1997, 2001 and 2002 before finishing 'only' sixth in 2009.
