The leaderboard is shaping up, the last few groups are winding down the back nine.
Rory McIlroy (-10) followed up yesterday’s 65 with a very solid 69, keeping his two shot lead.
Rory McIlroy continues the great play. Rory birdied #2, #5 and #9 and is currently three shots ahead of the nearest competitor (K.J. Choi) at -10.
Speaking of K.J. Choi, he finished the day shooting 70 for a total score of 07. He had it at -8 a couple of times, but a 3-putt on 18 from birdie range hurt.
I’m tuned into the live video streams on my iPad and desktop machines watching the Masters. But I could have sworn I was watching the Bob Hope Desert Classic. Scores are continuing to be very low, lots of red numbers on the leader board.
K.J. Choi is currently in the lead at -8 after six holes. Y.E. Yang and Ricky Barnes are at -6 (through 10 and 8 respectively).
The day’s play is over for the Thursday edition of the 2011 Masters. What a day it was. The theme of the day is low scoring with an emphasis on international players. Only 8 out of the top 23 (up to T14) players are from the USA.
