    Scott's tee shot on 17 is waaaay left.

    Choi and Schwartzel will have about 15 and 20 foot birdie shots at the 16th.

    Meanwhile, somewhat forgotten Cabrera will have an eagle shot to get to -11, though more likely result is a birdie to get to -10.

    Luke Donald hits the flag on his approach on the 18th, and unfortunately kicks off the green. He'll have to hole a chip shot to remain in contention.

    Cabrera gets his birdie, and is at -10 with three holes to go.

    Schwartzel with a huge birdie putt to command co-leader status for now.

    Jeez, Scott hit his tee shot into the greenside bunker on the 7th!

    Meanwhile, Schwartzel birdies the 16th, and is at -12. Suddenly, the world has flipped around and Schwartzel is sitting pretty.

    What a shot by Donald! He chips in for that birdie at 18 and joins the clubhouse leaders at -10!

    Adam Scott is going to have a tough attempt for par at the 17th, but given where his tee shot went, that's not all that bad.

    Day hit it a mile away for his birdie putt.

    Cabrera's shot at 16 overruns the green, and he'll be fighting for par to stay at -10.

    Schwartzel's tee shot at 17 looks immaculate compared to Scott's, but he is in the second cut off the right.

    Day gets a big birdie putt from a loooong ways away at the 17th, and suddenly he is 1 back at -11.

    Absolutely can't believe that Scott saved his par.

    Schwartzel had a great shot from the second cut on 17, and he'll have a birdie putt for the lead.

    Cabrera BADLY misses a par putt at the 16th, and at 3 back with 2 holes to go, he's probably cooked.

    Scott gets it in the fairway on the 18th.

    Choi leaves a birdie putt way short and then misses his par to fall back to -9, and he's all the way out of contention now.

    Scott is on the green at 18 with a long birdie putt. At bare minimum, he looks like he'll be at -12.

    Schwartzel birdies the 17th, and he's at -13 and in the lead heading to the 18th.

    Scott could not birdie the 18th, and so Schwartzel will need only par after his fairway drive to win the Masters.

    Day birdies the 18th, and he moves to -12, in a tie for second place. If Schwartzel falters, it will be a three way playoff.

    Schwartzel with an excellent approach onto the green, and he'll have to two putt from what looks about 20 feet for the win. The jacket is as good as his.

    Australia goes wanting again.

    Schwartzel says "Two putts? Heck, let's do it in one!" Birdies it and he finishes at -14 and will win the Masters.

    Up until that point, I was going to credit the fact he birdied 15 while Scott and Day could not for his win, but guess that would have been irrelevant.

    So Tiger is still looking for that next win, and will have to content himself with yet another top 6 finish at the Masters. Since his last win in 2005 (which WOW, can you believe it was that long ago that he won a tournament he seemed to win every year?), he has finished in the top 6 every year.

    One of the best days in sports is Sunday at the Masters. Every shot is so dramatic for the last 5 hours. Nothing like that is replicated in any other sport. Schwartzel just stared the final four holes down and said, "Who is your daddy?"

    WOW. Like I said earlier in the day and earlier in the thread, what a day to have shots fall like that. The eagle from about 150 out and the chip in birdie were huge shots and whats the chances of starting your round out like that Sunday at the masters? Guy wasn't even really talked about that much and even if Rory didn't totally implode Schwartzel would have still been right in there. He was hitting shot after shot today, unreal. He went out and earned that jacket thats for sure. How I would love to know what he felt like hitting some of those shots today, I'm sure words cannot even explain.

    I loved it. My sons girlfriend wanted him to come out to her house and he said after the Masters is over. It is tradition that my mom and I watch the Masters together on Sunday.
