Charl Schwartzel Tied With Adam Scott Atop Masters Leaderboard

With a slippery birdie putt on No. 16, just minutes after Adam Scott made his birdie on the same hole to get to 12-under, Charl Schwartzel moved to the top of the Masters leaderboard, in a tie for first with Scott. Schwartzel strung together back-to-back birdies on No. 15 and No. 16 to get to 4-under on the day and 12-under on the tournament as the top of the leaderboard is still incredibly crowded.

Schwartzel and Scott have made this a two-horse race coming down the stretch, going at each other shot-for-shot as they widen the gap to the rest of the field. As of now, the two have a two-shot lead on a group of five that includes Luke Donald, who hit the pin and spun his ball off the 18th green before sinking a birdie chip to get to 10-under.

Scott found trouble off the tee at No. 17, landing in the bunker and leaving himself a difficult second shot. Schwartzel is just getting to the tee at No. 17 and the door is wide-open for him to take advantage with the pressure on.
