Neither Woods Nor Mickelson Leads Masters

Rory McIlroy, the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland, shot a 2-under 70 Saturday that gave him a four-shot lead going into Sunday – the largest 54-hole lead at the Masters since a 21-year-old Tiger Woods led by nine in 1997.

Woods is not close to him after a 74 to finish seven shots behind. Chasing after McIlroy are former Masters champion Angel Cabrera, Charl Schwartzel, K.J. Choi and Jason Day.

“It’s a great position to be in,” McIlroy said. “I feel comfortable with my game, comfortable with the way I prepared, and all of a sudden I’m finally feeling comfortable on this golf course. With a combination like that, you’re going to feel pretty good.”

McIlroy tees off at 2:40 pm.
