Masters Leaderboard: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Battling For Top Spot

Tiger Woods had scored even par through two holes of his back nine, and now sits two strokes behind Rory McIlroy on the 2011 Masters Tournament leaderboard after shooting for bogey on hole No. 12. Woods missed what should've been an easy putt for him, and the youngster holds the 11-under lead.

Charl Schwartzel is also in contention, just ahead of Tiger at 10-under, but nobody feels like talking about him, I guess. McIlroy broke a cold spell with a birdie on hole No. 7 to retake the lead. Woods has six holes left, while McIlroy and Schwartzel still have 11 to go. He's been hot on hole No. 13 all week, so this hole could be very critical.

Adam Scott, K.J. Choi, and Angel Cabrera are bunched at 9-under, with Scott the only one headed in the right direction on the day overall. Luke Donald and Jason Day are tied at 8-under. Then we have Ross Fisher and Bo Van Pelt at 6-under.
