Masters Leaderboard: Augusta National Golf Club Getting The Best Of Tiger Woods

It’s been a struggle for Tiger Woods in the third round of The Masters on Saturday. In what’s known as moving day, Woods has covered every inch of ground at Augusta National Golf Club, familiarizing himself with some of the intricacies of the course — and not the good ones. Woods has found the trees, pinestraw and taken shots from every different angle as he struggles with both his golf swing and his putter while stuck in neutral on the leaderboard.

For the day, Woods is currently at 1-over, pushing his score to 6-under for the tournament. He’s played some brilliant shots out of trouble off the tee, but has also been forced to scramble for much of the day, a sign of his struggles at Augusta National. At No. 17, Woods played his tee shot to a precarious spot, forcing the golf enthusiast to squat under a large branch and mash his way out, leaving himself a third shot from the greenside bunker. He did get up-and-down to save par, however, as his ability to scramble prevailed again. His late-round struggles are as good an indication as any of how his day has gone.

Rory McIlroy still holds the tournament lead at 11-under, two shots ahead of Jason Day. K.J. Choi, Charl Schwartzel and Angel Cabrera sit in a tie for third at 8-under for the tournament. Check out the full leaderboard for The Masters for a look at where the field sits late in the third round.
