Adam Scott Takes Masters Leaderboard Top Spot As Tiger Woods Winds Down

No Australian has ever won a Masters Tournament, but three are very much in the running for this year's. Adam Scott has taken the No. 1 spot, Jason Day has been among the leaders for days now and narrowly missed joining Scott, and Geoff Ogilvy may have been the final round's most impressive player, having gone 5-under so far to join the cluster at 10-under.

Tiger Woods is also 10-under, along with Charl Schwartzel. Angel Cabrera would be among them, but he's tangled with a handful of tricky putts to remain at 9-under. The biggest factor at this point: Woods and Ogilvy only have a couple of holes left to improve their scores, while the others all have most of their back nines remaining.

Rory McIlroy's struggles continue, and the scene is not easy to sit through. The former leader drove into a stream to the left of a green on his most recent hole, stopping to sob while leaning on his club before moving to deal with his ball.
