Masters leaderboard 2019: Where is Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and others?

It was hard to imagine we'd ever get this Tiger Woods back at the Masters

Record scores on the white boards at Augusta National.

There was better news, however, for Woods as the 43-year-old firmly put himself in the hunt for a historic 15th major title and fifth green jacket. But it was his first since the 2008 U.S. Open, capping a remarkable recovery from debilitating injuries and embarrassing personal problems.

Oddly, their only previous pairing together came this year at Torrey Pines in the first two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open. A green jacket is a longshot, but it's still within reach. It's the first time three players have shot 64 or better in a single round of the Masters. He led on the back nine of the British Open before being overtaken by Molinari and finished runner-up at last year's PGA Championship.

Finau, chasing his first major title, fired a bogey-free eight-under 64.

One thing Finau has done as well as anyone this week, which could bode well Sunday, is attack the par-5s.

The inaugural Women's Amateur championship marked another major breakthrough at Augusta National, with its long-standing reputation as a haven for rich, white, well-connected men.

All four made the same mistake, leaving their shot short and watching it roll down the hill into the water.

Fortunately, Woods seemed to be able to walk it off as he strolled the green. He started the day at 2-over par and tied for 50th.

Four of the last five champions at Augusta held at least a share of the lead heading into the final day.

He joins five others - Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, K.J. Choi, Gary Woodland and Phil Mickelson - who have all carded 30 over the first nine holes. The weather forecast calls for possible thunderstorms to roll through by mid-afternoon.

The 43-year-old Woods has been on the comeback trail since December 2017, gradually building up his participation in various tournaments. And he'd never captured one trailing after 54 holes.

But he missed a 5-footer for par at the fifth; three-putted the eighth to bogey a par-5; had it to 5 feet after an excellent approach at the par-3 12th and failed to convert.

If what happened at 12 was tragedy, what happened to Molinari at 15 was a farce.

A number of fortuitous breaks followed as he got away with poor tee shots at the ninth, 11th and 13th, even picking up a shot at the latter.

The ace dropped the former Alabama All-American to 9-under par for the tournament, which moved him to within two shots of the lead behind Francesco Molinari, Xander Schauffele and Tiger Woods at that time.

Tony Finau, who is playing in the final group with Molinari and Woods, also bogeyed No. 5.

Justin Thomas aced the par-3, 170-yard 16th hole in the final round of the Masters on Sunday.
