TIGER WOODS WAY BACK AT MASTERS-MICKELSON STRUGGLES-McILROY SURGES

Tiger Woods shot an even 72 in Round 3 of the 2018 Masters, staving off what would have been his third consecutive round over par and leaving him 13 shots off the lead at the time he finished.

Amen Corner was famous well before 2016, but that year reminded us exactly why it was.  Reigning champ Jordan Spieth made the turn Sunday at 7-under with a five-stroke lead. Then came a bogey, and a bogey, and a quadruple bogey, and the green jacket was out of sight. BY
