Masters Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Leads, Tiger Woods Stumbles After Hot Start

Tiger Woods is making it interesting at Augusta National Golf club during the final round of The Masters. Woods came into the day seven shots back, but rocketed up the Masters leaderboard with a front nine that can only be described as blistering. He went out in 31, 5-under par, to reel in leader Rory McIlroy, tying the young Irishman early in the round.

But McIlroy began to recover after two bogeys early in his round left him looking lost on the course, as though the pressure was getting to him. A birdie on No. 7 put him back atop the leaderboard, one shot ahead of Woods and Charl Schwartzel, who sat at 10-under at the time.

Woods gave another shot back on No. 12 after surviving hole No. 11, which had been his nemesis all week. A missed three-footer for par left him at 9-under, in fifth-place. Angel Cabrera, Schwartzel and K.J. Choi all sit in a tie for second at 10-under. A full leaderboard can be found here.

A close finish appears to be on the horizon and Tiger Woods is in the mix at The Masters on the back nine at Augusta National Golf Club. Coverage is live online and on CBS. For more on the tournament, including tee times and leaderboard updates, check out the rest of our 2011 Masters StoryStream.
