Tiger Woods charge lights up Masters as five major champions share lead

He was one of the four 54-hole co-leaders past year at the U.S. Open, and opened the final round with three bogeys in his first four holes.

It has been made a decision to use both the first and tenth tees, with players playing in groups of three as distinct from the traditional two. But to lead wire-to-wire at East Lake, and to do that under tough conditions against the hottest players all year, that gave me a lot of confidence going into the season. He went on to finish in a tie for 10th.

Tiger Woods' surge stole the spotlight at the Augusta National Golf Club as he closed in on the top of the standings midway through the Masters while Chinese golfer Li Haotong sailed through to the next round on Friday.

That spotlight will get even brighter if he wins the Masters, setting up a shot at the Career Grand Slam come July in the British Open at Royal Portrush.

Molinari, the Open champion, held off Woods at Carnoustie in the same final round group to win the Claret Jug last July.

A total of five players shared the lead with seven under after Friday's second round, but Woods was one of the four players who trailed just a shot back.

Scott was the only player to reach 8-under with a 2-iron into 5 feet for eagle on the 15th, only to miss a 3-foot par putt on the 16th. Tony Finau carded a 6-under 30 on his opening nine to take the tournament lead at 9-under. Here's a look at the tee times and pairings for Sunday as the 2019 Masters continues from Augusta National. There is little wind, and recent rain has led to a softer course with more forgiving greens.

Ryder Cup team-mate Tyrrell Hatton reacts to Francesco Molinari's fantastic record of just one bogey in 54 holes with a video of a shocked audience member from Australia's Got Talent and three applause emojis. The four-time Masters champion bogeyed the fifth hole for the third consecutive day before bouncing back with a birdie at the par-3 6th. He moved up 43 spots on the leaderboard after beginning the day in a tie for 50th.

Tiger Woods completed his best round at Augusta since 2011 to ensure he will be firmly in contention heading into the final round of the Masters.

Woods hit 16 of 18 greens for the second straight day and is tied for second in greens in regulation, always an important factor for him; in all four of his Masters victories, he ranked no worse than second.

With birdies flying all over the place, Tiger Woods has been passed up.

Joining them will be Tony Finau, playing this year on two good ankles after a self-inflicted injury a year ago.

But in order to overtake the firepower at the top of the leaderboard, Woods will need to convert some of those putts - he missed five inside of 10 feet.
