Tiger Woods has posted his number, and it’s up to everyone else to come and get him. Woods is the leader in the clubhouse, though not atop the Masters leaderboard, after posting a final round 67 to get to 10-under for the tournament. However, Adam Scott is still on the course and currently sits atop the leaderboard at 11-under after mounting a charge on the back nine to overtake the field. Four others are tied with Woods at 10-under, as well, in what’s become a crowded leaderboard at Augusta National Golf Course.
Woods’ front nine was the stuff legends are made of as he came out and set the course on fire to open his final round. By the time he hit the turn, Woods was already at 10-under for the day after a front nine 31 that saw him drain four birdies and an eagle to just one bogey. Woods cooled on the back nine and played it at even-par 36, with a bogey on No. 12 and a birdie on No. 15 the only times he deviated from par. But he’s posted his score and is the leader in the clubhouse, powerless to do anything as the field comes home.
It’s been wild at Augusta, as the final round typically is. Rory McIlroy has shot himself out of contention with a day that includes a triple-bogey on No. 10 and an immense amount of mistakes. Geoff Ogilvy, Charl Schwartzel, Luke Donald and Jason Day all sit in a tie for second with Woods at 10-under. K.J. Choi, Bo Van Pelt and Angel Cabrera are at 9-under.
With two shots separating the 10 players atop the Masters leaderboard, it looks like we’re heading for another close finish at Augusta.
