Masters Leaderboard Update: Fred Couples Shares Lead, Tiger Woods Struggling

Seattle's Fred Couples shares a piece of the lead at the 2012 Masters at age-52 after a nearly flawless round of 5-under 67 on Friday, tying his best ever round at Augusta. Couples had bogeys on the 1st hole and the 6th hole, but otherwise played masterfully. Couples, along with fellow American Jason Dufner, find themselves as leaders in the clubhouse at 5-under for the tournament thus far, trailed by Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson, all at 4-under.

On the other hand, Tiger Woods' comeback trail took a strange turn again today, with bogeys on 4, 6, 9, 11, and 16 and were marred by cursing, anger, and even some club kicking.

See below, as Tiger tees off on the 16th hole, and shows his displeasure with his shot, kicking his club:
