11:46 am on 13 April 2009

The New Zealand golfers had a dismal second day at the US Masters in Augusta.

The US Amateur champion Danny Lee joined former US Open winner Michael Campbell near the bottom of the leaderboard, both missing the cut on 11 over par.

The Rotorua teenager Lee carded a horror nine over 81 on a windy second day after dropping 11 shots on the back nine.

On two over par overnight at Augusta Lee began his second round with a bogie. An eagle and a birdie saw him two under after the first nine holes before Lee dropped five shots on the 10th hole - then added two double bogies and two bogies.

Campbell's also departing after a three over 75.

The Australian Greg Norman also missed out, while fellow legend Gary Player of South Africa had the highest score.

Chad Campbell has been joined in the lead by fellow American Kenny Perry.

Campbell added a two under 70 to move onto nine under but Perry carded a five under 67.

Tiger Woods failed to push on after an even par 72, bogeying the 18th to be seven shots back in a share of 13th.
