After a rough Saturday at the 2011 Masters, Tiger Woods entered Sunday's final round tied for ninth at five under. It looked as though his hopes of ending his drought of major championships were almost entirely gone, but then the old Tiger Woods showed up on Sunday.
Woods played some outstanding golf on the front nine of the final round at the Masters golf tournament. He birdied the second, third, sixth and seventh holes and he had an eagle on the eighth hole. Woods did bogey No. 4, but his string of birdies and that one eagle vaulted him up the Masters leaderboard and put him in contention for another green jacket.
On the back nine, Woods has three pars and one bogey so far. He has completed 13 holes and is nine under overall. Rory McIlroy, the leader coming into the final round, is 11 under through eight holes. Charl Schwartzel, K.J. Choi and Angel Cabrera are tied for second at 10 under. This means Woods is tied for fifth with Luke Donald and Adam Scott, who are also nine under.
Woods will have to finish strong to climb back to the top of the leaderboard, but even if he doesn't, at least he made the final day at the Masters very interesting.
