Scott goes to lead on wild final day at Augusta

BY foxsports • April 10, 2011

Adam Scott has taken the outright lead on a wild final day at the Masters.

The 54-hole-leader, Rory McIlroy, fell apart and opened up the chase for the green jacket to everyone from Tiger Woods to Geoff Ogilvy.

Scott seized the outright lead for the first time with an 8-foot birdie putt at the 14th. But it was still far too early to claim the title, not on a day when seven players had held at least a share of the lead.

Woods had the crowd in an uproar when he shot a 5-under 31 on the front side, but he couldn't keep up the momentum. He missed a short putt at the 12th, and another for an eagle at the 15th that would've given him the outright lead.

Scott was at 11 under, with eight players within two strokes of the lead.
