Tiger Woods One Shot Behind Rory McIlroy On Masters Leaderboard

Tiger Woods has cooled a bit as he enters Augusta National Golf Club’s toughest stretch. Woods is currently navigating Amen Corner, but sits at 10-under for the tournament, one shot back of Rory McIlroy on the Masters leaderboard. McIlroy reclaimed his lead after stumbling early, sinking a No. 7 to move to 11-under for the tournament, one clear of Woods.

Woods put on a clinic on the front nine at Augusta National, making the turn at 5-under for the day after going on with a 31. Woods birdied the second and third before a bogey on the fourth set him back a shot. But Woods got hot to close the front with birdies on No. 6 and No. 7 before ripping a three wood into the par five ninth, setting up an eagle putt to get to 10 under. He drained the putt, the crowd roared and it was on at Augusta.

McIlroy finally snapped his slump with a birdie No. 7 after opening with a bogey on No. 1 and giving another stroke back on No. 5. Charl Schwartzel is also quietly staying in contention after a hot start put him at 10-under for the day, tied with Woods for second-place. A full look at the leaderboard can be found here.
