David Lynn: 15 pars in his second round at Augusta

David Lynn insisted that "boring is good" after grinding out a second-round 73 to remain at the business end of the leaderboard at the Masters.

The English journeyman looked in danger of undoing much of his good work on the first day when he followed five opening pars with bogeys at the sixth and seventh.

But the Augusta debutant dug in to reel off 10 consecutive pars before picking up his first birdie of the round at the last to get back to three under for the tournament.

"I was just grinding out the pars," said Lynn, who admitted his position could have been much better had he backed up some excellent iron play with putts to match.

"I actually had quite a few chances on the back nine, so to finally finish with a birdie I hit a fantastic shot into the last to about six feet.

"As we can see by the numbers on the scoreboard, nobody is running away with it, so boring is good."
