AUGUSTA, GA. (AP) - Tiger Woods has shot a 5-under 67 in the final round of the Masters, going to the clubhouse trailing leader Adam Scott by one stroke.

Scott took the outright lead Sunday with a birdie at the 14th. All Woods could do was hope the others still on the course gave away strokes down the stretch.

It was one of the wildest Sundays ever at Augusta National. When Woods rolled in a par at the 18th, he was one of five players at 10 under _ all one stroke behind Scott. Three more players were two shots off the lead.

The 54-hole-leader, Rory McIlroy, fell apart. He gave up the lead with a triple-bogey at the 10th, followed with two straight three-putt bogeys, then drove his tee shot at No. 13 into a tributary of Rae’s Creek.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) _ 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.
