Tiger looms large, even on star-filled Masters leaderboard

Rory Mc Ilroy blotted his card with six bogeys on day one Rory Mc Ilroy blotted his card with six bogeys on day one

Tiger Woods entered the third round just one shot off the lead after shooting a fantastic round of four-under par on Friday.

"It was just one of those weeks, just not quite had it", McIlroy said after an erratic round containing an eagle, four birdies and five bogeys.

Four-time victor Woods rolled in a 7-foot birdie putt at the 16th, sending roars cascading across Augusta National as he moved to 11-under for the tournament.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Tony Finau was famous for celebrating an ace in last year's par 3 tournament at Augusta National Golf Club - and in the process dislocating his ankle, which he then popped back into place.

Tony Finau of the USA looks up the 4th hole before hitting during third round play.

The expected fireworks started early as one of the US hopes Finau provided the main plot twist, racing to the top of leaderboard with a sparkling six-under 30 front nine featuring four birdies and an eagle. "Accidents happen, and we move on".

In fact, Woods would birdie the next two holes to pull within a stroke of the lead.

His five putts made from beyond 20 feet over two days are two more than any rival.

Winter weather returns this week
Even with a limited moisture supply, some powerful thunderstorms are possible, although they likely will cover small swaths. A bomb cyclone hit Colorado and Nebraska last month as part of a storm system that killed several people.

Day defied crippling back pain to be in contention after the first round - somehow posting a 2-under par 70 to finish day one just four shots from the lead despite aggravating his chronic back injury and needing medical treatment just five shots in.

Woods went on to birdie the 14th and 15th to send familiar roars through the Georgia pines and could very well have grabbed the outright lead but sent an eight-foot birdie putt at 17 just past the hole and left a 14-footer at 18 just short.

Scott returned from a 40-minute weather delay and fired a 231-yard second shot into the par-5 15th hole.

"It's a bunched leader board ... if someone decides to break away on the weekend I'm in a good spot to run with them".

"It was a solid day off the tee, hit the ball well", Molinari said.

Woods had three birdies on each nine, with a bogey 5 on the fifth his only blight.

The man - yet to be identified - did hit Woods on his right foot, leading the 14-time major victor to jump in the air several times before limping back to the fairway.

A rain-softened course was expected to play into McIlroy's hands, but the 29-year-old added: "I don't think this course plays easier when it's soft". He still was within four shots, along with Justin Thomas, who had a 68.
