2011 Masters Leaderboard: Tiger On The Hunt

I said it was Rory’s to lose and he’s certainly doing his part, but some unknown player named Tiger Woods is making a Sunday funday run and it’s all kicked off at Augusta! McIlroy’s off to a shaky start, bogeying one and pulling off a stellar bunker shot to help save par at two.

Woods is at five under after eight holes, including a highlight reel second shot on eight that set up an eagle putt. Which he promptly sunk to bring himself within one of McIlroy. He finds himself in a spot of trouble on nine, but a blistering front nine has put Woods right in the mix.

He’s not the only one threatening the leader. South African Charl Schwartzel got off to a blinding start, chipping in for birdie at one and then hitting a magnificent iron on three that found the hole for an eagle. He briefly shared the lead at -11, but has since given one back.

Sunday at the Masters. Crack open a cold one!

ADDENDUM: And just as I’m about to post, Rory misses a short par put to drop another shot. It’s a three-way tie at -10, but Tiger has a long par putt on nine – which he makes! The Masters!
