Masters leaderboard 2013: Rory McIlroy playing well, Tianlang Guan finishes 12-over

USA TODAY Sports

The final round of the Masters is in full swing and judging by some of the early scores, scoring could go low as the leaders hit the course.

The contenders have begun to tee off at Augusta National and based on the performance of a few players early on, scores could go low on Sunday.

Phil Mickelson finished his final round with a 1-over 73, but after his round, Mickelson said he thought someone was going to go low on Sunday. A few players have already found success in the final round, proving there are low scores to be had. Rory McIlroy is among the players playing well. Back-to-back birdies at No. 15 and No. 16 have McIlroy 3-under for the round and 2-over for the tournament. If not for a 7-over 79 on Saturday, McIlory could be challenging for the clubhouse lead.

Michael Thompson carded the lowest round of the day thus far, posting a 5-under 67 on Sunday. David Toms is 5-under through 15 holes on the day while Ryan Moore and Ryo Ishikawa carded 4-under 68s. The late groups are beginning to tee off with Justin Rose and Zach Johnson among the players on the course. Both Rose and Johnson are 1-under through three holes.

The final groups are preparing to join the others on the course as Tiger Woods will tee off at 2:10 p.m. ET with Adam Scott teeing off at 2:30 p.m. and the final pairing hitting the course at 2:40 p.m.

Tianlang Guan, one of the stories of the 2013 Masters, finished his final round with a 3-over 75. He finished the tournament as the low amateur at 12-over and is currently in 58th place. A complete leaderboard can be found at Masters.com.
