The 2011 Masters Saturday Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Has Four Stroke Lead at -12, Tiger Woods Stumbles to -5

As the third round of the 2011 Masters comes to a close, we’ve seen a lot of movers and shakers going up and down the leaderboard all day, while others merely maintained their positions. 21 year old Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy finds himself out in front of the rest of the pack after shooting a -2 par 70 to move himself to -12 for the tournament through 54 holes. His playing partner Jason Day struggled a bit, shooting a even par 72, sitting alongside Angel Cabrerra, K.J. Choi, and Charl Swartzel at -8 par for the week so far.

Tiger Woods really struggled with his putter today, although he was striking the ball pretty well. He finished the day with 4 bogeys and 2 birdies for a +2 par 74 to move back to -5 for the tournament, 7 shots off the lead with former champ Fred Couples, Geoff Ogilvy, Bubba Watson, and Ross Fisher.
