The weather could not take away the magic as the second day produced another stunning spectacle at the Masters Tournament.

Here are some of the things you might have missed at Augusta National Golf Club.

Woosy bows out

Ian Woosnam, Champion in 1991, has announced he has played his final Masters after missing the cut. The 61-year-old suffers from ankylosing spondylitis and had previously retired from playing at Augusta in 2016 before being persuaded to change his mind by his wife Glendryth.

“Maybe if they will give me a cart or something like that I’ll come back," he said. "That would be all right. But I don’t think I’ll get that. It’s been a pleasure being here, being a Champion, I look forward to coming for many more years."

Woosnam still plans to attend the annual Champions Dinner and play the traditional pre-tournament par-three contest.

Zach Johnson is one of us...........sometimes

As a two time Major Champion, it's pretty rare that Zach Johnson would make the sort of mistake that you or I would on a golf course but that was the case on Friday. While stood on the 13th tee, he hit his ball with the toe of his club while taking a practice swing, sending it clattering into a tee marker and running forward.

"I can't think of a time I've done it," he said. "I mean, not on purpose. Maybe I tried to do it. I don't think I could do it again if I even tried."

There was no penalty as Johnson did not intend to hit the ball and he went on to make a birdie. Maybe he's better than us after all.

Ton up for Lefty

Phil Mickelson brought up yet another milestone in his brilliant career as he carded a 73 in his 100th round at the Masters. Since claiming the Silver Cup as low amateur in 1991, Mickelson's 100 rounds have brought him three Green Jackets and 12 other top tens, and he finished outside of the top ten just once between 1999 and 2010. He has played 53 of those rounds under par for a 73 under total. A true Masters great.

Langer makes the weekend, again

Just a day after carding his 42nd under par round at Augusta, the two time Champion signed for a 72 to stay at one under and make the cut at 61 years of age. As well as his wins in 1985 and 1993, he has seven other top tens, including as recently as 2014, and he was just two off the lead heading into the final round in 2016. He has ten Senior Majors but looks likely to keep trying for more Green Jackets for a while yet.

Tiger nearly takes a tumble

The 14 time Major Champion made arguably the birdie of the day when he recovered from sending his tee shot on the 14th a long way left by playing out to 28 feet and rolling home the putt - but it could have been so different. After Woods had completed his second shot, a marshal running behind him slipped and clipped the former World Number One's ankle. The golfing world held its breath but Tiger was fine and went on to make another birdie on the next. He heads into the weekend one shot off the lead and with no ankle problems.
