The 2011 Masters, Live Coverage: Tiger Woods Birdies Two of First Three, Phil Mickelson Struggling

As the final round of the 2011 Masters gets underway, Rory McIlroy will attempt to maintain his composure this Sunday and ride his four shot lead to the green jacket this afternoon, but there are others already on the course trying to make a move; namely Mr. Tiger Woods.

After parring the first, Tiger birdies the second and third to move to -7 par for the tournament, 5 shots back of Mcilroy. Wearing his usual Sunday red, Tiger is looking like he has his swag back early today, and hopefully can put a historic charge on this historic Sunday at Augusta National. As for last year’s champion Phil Mickelson, he just double bogeyed the fifth to move back to -2 par for the tournament, and is all but out of contention already with his hiccup.

McIlroy is about to tee of with the 2009 champion Angel Cabrera, in the final group. With former champions right on the cusp, and a 21 year old sitting on a big lead, today should prove to be an interesting Sunday no matter how it shakes out.
