Ireland's Padraig Harrington and Fijian Vijay Singh share the lead on five under par approaching the closing holes of the second round of the US Masters.

Harrington had birdies at the first, 9th, 10th and 14th, mixed with bogeys at four and 13 to take the lead, while Singh, the 2000 Masters champion grabbed birdies at the 8th, 12th and 13th holes to join him.

Overnight leader Davis Love III held on to his advantage until the par-3 12th where he had a four, then took five at the tricky par-4 14th, the only hole on the course devoid of bunkers.

Sergio Garcia was briefly co-leader with a two at the 4th but at Amen Corner had a five and a six at the 11th and 13th.

Tied in third place on four under par are Angel Cabrera, Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen, who has just started his round with a birdie at the par-5 second hole.

Miguel Angel Jimenez is the clubhouse leader on three under par after a 71 today. Tiger Woods parred his first two holes to remain on two under par.
