Day two of the 2009 US Masters saw a slight change in the weather with gusting winds and overcast skies. Some great rounds were still carded and we see Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry sharing the lead on nine under par.

Kenny Perry shot a bogey-free five-under-par 67 to join Chad Campbell at the top of the Masters leaderboard on nine under after two rounds at Augusta.
Overnight leader Campbell fired a two-under-par 70 while Angel Cabrera carded a 68 to sit third on eight under.
Tiger Woods had another low-key round and is two under after a level-par 72.
Northern Ireland teenager Rory McIlroy dropped five shots in the last three holes but avoided disqualification for kicking sand in a bunker on the 18th.
Woods, who returned an opening-round 70 on Thursday, had birdies on holes 6 and 8 and bogeys on 7 and 9. After birdying 15 he bogeyed 18 for the second day running.
"There were a lot of wasted opportunities out there," he said. "I hit some good putts today, better than yesterday for sure, but I still didn't make much.
"Obviously I need to play a bit better over the weekend than I have been. I need to make few more putts and hopefully get it going."
On each of the three previous occasions Woods has started a Masters by shooting 70, he has gone on to claim victory.
But the 33-year-old, competing in his first major since knee surgery, had before never failed to score in the 60s on Friday having shot a 70 on Thursday.
