Masters Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods Fires +1 On Front Nine Sunday

Tiger Woods has been struggling with his golf game seemingly all week long at the 2012 Masters, and that streak has continued into Sunday at Augusta National as the four-time Masters champion shot a 1-over 37 on his front nine Sunday, pushing him even further away from the leaders.

Tiger made birdie on the par-5 second hole, but unfortunately made bogeys on both par-4 fifth and par-5 eighth to limp his way to the second nine, with the tough stretch at Amen Corner ahead of him still. Tiger got progressively more frustrated as the week went on after starting out relatively well, than watching it all fall apart the rest of the week.

Sitting only a couple of majors behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18, many wonder if Tiger will ever get back into the winner's circle in a major championship. This will make it seven straight Masters without a victory, though his most recent major was at the U.S. Open, which will be next on the docket come June.
