Masters Leaderboard: Bubba Watson, Adam Scott Enjoy Third Round Surges

The University of Georgia's Bubba Watson, who was in danger of missing the 2011 Masters Tournament cut on Friday, could finish the day in the leaderboard's top 10. After scoring a 67 by shooting seven birdies, he's now 5-under for the event, tying him for 13th place.  

His third round results still might not be the most impressive with Adam Scott also 5-under on the day with four holes left. Scott just shot an eagle on hole No. 13, moving him into a third-place tie at 7-under.

Partners Jason Day and Rory McIlroy continue to spar for the lead, with Day now sitting at 11-under and McIlroy at 10-under. Day has scored three birdies in their first five holes, while McIlroy is even on the day.

Matt Kuchar looked ready to join Watson on the outskirts of the top 10, having shot 4-under at one point, but going 3-under to break the top 20 is no disappointment. And momentum from Tiger Woods' roaring Friday hasn't continued, with Woods 1-over for the round and 6-under overall.
