Tiger Woods Nearly Takes Sole Masters Tournament Lead As Rory McIlroy Falls Apart

Tiger Woods had a chance to sink an eagle that would've given him the 2011 Masters Tournament lead free and clear, but he'll have to settle for a tie at 10-under with Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel, and Angel Cabrera. The leaderboard's biggest recent adjustment, however, was Rory McIlroy's triple bogey on hole No. 10, which saw the tourney's leader in all three opening rounds veer far left into a yard, far right into a tree, and everywhere in between.

Woods has three holes remaining, having just blasted his drive onto the hole No. 16 green and nearly scoring an ace. He has a chance for a birdie that could give him the lead.

McIlroy is battling back from 8-under, which really isn't as bad as you'd think after watching that disaster. Here, look how far off the green he was after his drive
