“Pressure got to me a little bit,” said Day, who was playing in his third Masters. “It’s a little disappointing, but there’s a lot of experience that I can take into next year and hopefully I can wear one of those green jackets soon.”

Woods, who was seeking his fourth victory of the season, shot his third 70 of the tournament (to go with a 73), running his Masters win drought to eight years.

“I played well, unfortunately I just didn’t make enough putts and also missed a few shots here and there,” said Woods, who had a two-shot penalty for an illegal drop in the second round. “I certainly had an opportunity today.”

Cabrera led by three shots over Scott and Day after a front-nine 34. After Cabrera bogeyed Nos. 10 and 13 and Day made birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15, Day was in the lead at 9-under.

Day bogeyed No. 16 to drop back into a tie at 8-under with Scott, who birdied No. 15. Cabrera was at 7-under after making par on No. 15.

Minutes later, Cabrera made it a three-way tie at 8-under with a birdie on No. 16, just as he did in the final round of his 2009 victory.

Day dropped back with a bogey on No. 17 and parred No. 18 while Scott and Cabrera both parred No. 17 and birdied No. 18. It was the first time in Masters history that two players went into a playoff after both birdied the final hole of regulation.
