The 21-year-old from Northern Ireland entered the final round of the Masters with a four-stroke lead, but finished 10 strokes back of champion Charl Schwartzel after shooting a final-round score of 80. The trouble started for McIlroy on the 10th hole, where he hit his drive left, got back onto the fairway, only to later hit a tree on his pitch shot as he scored a triple bogey. He then three-putted the 11th and four-putted the 12th before hitting his tee shot into a creek on the 13th. McIlroy's final round score was the worst by a third-round leader since Ken Venturi in 1956.
