Masters Leaderboard: Adam Scott Leads, Tiger Woods Finishes 10-Under

After stepping off his final hole at the 2011 Masters Tournament, Tiger Woods was asked whether he thinks he's back. He replied that he's one stroke away from the lead, and said it not quite as defensively as you'd think. He did indeed finish one shot shy of the top spot on the leaderboard, which means he's playing just about as well as any golfer in the world. Sounds back to me, right?

Long-putting Australian Adam Scott is now 12-under with two holes to go, and may have just ruined the day of all those hoping for a playoff. However, with as many as a half-dozen players within a stroke of the lead in recent moments, it may be for the best if we have a regulation winner.

Geoff Ogilvy, Jason Day, K.J. Choi, and Carl Schwartzel are tied with Woods at 10-under, with Luke Donald close behind. Angel Cabrera and Bo Van Pelt sit at 8-under but would be looking much better if not for some challenging putts.
