Masters Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Ties Rory McIlroy For Lead

For lack of a better way to say this, Tiger Woods is back. At least for one half of one round in one tournament, but it's Sunday in Augusta. The 2011 Masters Tournament leaderboard opened the day with Rory McIlroy looking back from four strokes up and Tiger a near-afterthought compared to Jason Day, Angel Cabrera, and the others at 8-under.

Woods has shot four birdies and an eagle, ending his front nine with a par-saving putt after getting caught deep in the trees and pine straw to remain 5-under on the round. A moment before, McIlroy flubbed his third putt of the day to fall to 10-under.

Charl Schwarzel's rally has slowed slightly, as the South African shot for bogey on hole No. 4 and putted to save par on hole No. 5. Luke Donald, K.J. Choi, Day, and Cabrera remain in the mix -- each remains at 8-under. Bubba Watson's final round has been a struggle, as he's shot 2-over on the day.
