Tiger Woods' eagle on the seventh keeps him alive at the Masters, but just barely
Just when you thought Tiger Woods was out of the Masters chase, he pulls off a Tiger shot Sunday at Augusta National. Like Phil Mickelson in the third round, Woods holes out, this time from the fairway on the par-4 seventh to right the ship after playing the first six holes on Sunday 3-over par.
It might not be enough, but there’s still plenty of golf left, and Mickelson and leader Lee Westwood aren’t running away. Woods is only five shots out, and there are a whole lot of other players within range. This thing is a long way from over, and look out for 50-year-old Fred Couples on the back nine. Couples trails by three, and steady South Korean K.J. Choi is just two back.
