Masters Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Grabs Share Of Lead As McIlroy Falls Apart

Tiger Woods is still struggling with his putter, but his issues this round have been setting birdies or par rather than bogeys as in previous rounds. Woods surged into a share of the lead with his birdie on 15. On that same hole he missed out on the chance to take the lead outright with having a four foot put for Eagles rim in and out.

The leader coming into the day, Rory McIlroy meanwhile has fallen apart. He is seven over par on the day after a triple bogey on ten. He’s now dropped five shots off the lead at -5 after coming into the day with a four shot lead. It has become almost uncomfortable to watch the 21 year old, especially on 12 where he missed two putts from with 4-5 feet. After that disaster at 12, his tee shot on 13 ended up in the water. McIlroy slumped over for a few moments after the shot, clearly completely out of sorts.

Currently, four players claim a share of the lead at 10-under. Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel & Angel Cabrera.
