Masters Leaderboard: Third Round Scores From Augusta National Golf Club

With a few exceptions, scores generally around even-par on moving day as Augusta National Golf Club showed its teeth on Saturday at The Masters. There were scores to be had, but for most it was a day of grinding it out as pin locations got tougher and the course became more difficult to navigate safely. One person that did make it through to the final round safely was Rory McIlroy, who has held a share of the lead or better through all three rounds of The Masters so far.

McIlroy was solid, if unspectacular, on moving day, entering the clubhouse with a 2-under 70 to improve to 12-under for the tournament. But he found himself with a bigger lead than he had heading into his round as those behind him struggled to catch up. With a four shot lead heading into the final round, the 2011 Masters is McIlroy's to lose.

Playing alongside McIlroy will be former Masters champion Angel Cabrera. A 5-under 67 tied the low round of the day, and put El Pato in striking distance heading into Sunday at Augusta. Jason Day, K.J. Choi and Charl Schwartzel are also at 8-under.

The big names are well-behind McIlory on the leaderboard after disappointing rounds by Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Woods struggled with his putter on Saturday, carding a 2-over 74 to fall back to 5-under for the tournament, seven shots off the pace. Phil Mickelson has been stuck in neutral all tournament long at Augusta and sits at 3-under for the tournament. Barring a miracle, Mickelson's hopes for a second-straight green jacket are over.
