Tiger’s Masters Rally Silenced

Tiger Woods was right in the thick of things after round two on Friday.

But his prowl at the lead took a different direction on “moving day” Saturday.

Tiger Woods had finished his second round with a 66 on Friday, which vaulted him to the top section of the leaderboard, putting him 3 shots back of leader Rory McIlroy.  His back-9 surge is what prompted Tiger’s rally. However, things took a turn for the worse on Saturday as Woods shot a 2-over 74, and is now seven strokes back from the leader McIlroy. Rory McIlroy has a four stroke lead over K.J. Choi, Angel Cabrera, Charl Schwartzel, and Jason Day. The four stroke lead is the largest 54-hole lead at The Masters since, guess who, when Tiger Woods had an eight stroke lead in 1997.

When Tiger Woods was asked about his Saturday round, he responded with “I just made nothing,”  “I hit the ball well all day. That wasn’t the problem. Take away the two three-putts there, a couple of unforced errors and it should have been a pretty good round.”

If Rory McIlroy can hold on for the victory, he will become the youngest winner of The Masters.
