As the second round of the 2010 Masters comes to end we find two Englishmen atop the leaderboard. Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter share the lead at 8 under par. Trailing by 2 shot at 6 under par are a group of very talented golfers including 4-time champion Tiger Woods and 2-time champion Phil Mickelson. K.J. Choi, Ricky Barnes, and Anthony kim rounds out the group currently tied for third place. First round leader Fred Couple shot a second round 7 to drop to 3-under par.

Tiger Woods has shown that his game is back and if he can improve his putting he might primed to capture his 5th Green Jacket and make an emphatic statement that his back and that he is still the most dominate player in the game.

As for Lee Westwood this years Masters means a lot more. He was in the hunt at Torrey Pines along with Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate for his first Major Championship at the 2008 U.S. Open only to miss out on a playoff by one shot. Last year at the Open Champions at Turnberry he found himself in a similar position only to come up short to Tom Watson. Westwood has to realize that this maybe as good a chance as he will ever have to capture his first Major Championship and become the first European to capture a Green Jacket since José María Olazábal in 1999.

As the 3rd Round begins the 2010 Masters is up for grabs to say the least. Who will make a move and try and steal this championship away from the rest of the field. The golf course will be setup tough for the second straight day and if someone wants to win the 74th Masters Tournament they will have to show the patience required to win a major championship.
