The 2011 Masters, Live Coverage: Tiger Woods Tied for Lead at -10 with Rory McIlroy, Charl Swartzel

Tiger Woods is making history on Sunday at the 2011 Masters, using a long par putt on the ninth to shot a -5 par 31 on the front nine to move into a 3 way tie atop the leaderboard at -10 par with Rory McIlroy and Charl Swartzel. McIlroy has had two bogeys already and is looking very tentative out out on the course right now, while Swartzel has used to chip ins on the first and third holes to catapult himself to a tie at the top.

Tiger has been draining putts from everywhere while his iron play has been absolutely extraordinary. His eagle at the eighth completely changed the landscape of the tournament so far, and will make for some must see TV over the next couple of hours. Some people say that the Masters really starts on the back nine on Sunday, and now that we have arrived there, it’s time for someone to step up and claim the green jacket for themselves.
