Augusta, Georgia: Tiger Woods ignored calls to withdraw from the Masters on Saturday after being given a two-stroke penalty for an improper drop at the 15th hole.

The Augusta National Golf Club competition committee issued the penalty for his drop at the par-5 15th hole in Friday's second round, a violation that could have led to his disqualification.

Instead, Woods fell from three to five strokes behind leader Jason Day of Australia but was allowed to continue playing in the year's first major championship.
