Tiger Woods is right in the thick of it on Day 4 at the Masters. After trailing Francesco Molinari by two strokes after Day 3, he has pulled within one today.
Things weren’t all sunshine and rainbows for Woods to start the day, though. After a birdie on the third hole, Woods had back-to-back bogeys on holes four and five that put him in jeopardy.
But Woods responded with back-to-back birdies on the seventh and eighth. Meanwhile, Molinari suffered a bogie on the seventh hole, allowing Woods to cut into his lead.
Wood is currently minus-1 through nine holes, and minus-12 overall. He is within one stroke of Molinari heading to the back nine.

Molinari has been arguably the hottest golfer at the tournament, though. Before his bogie on the seventh, he had gone 49 straight holes at par or better. The bogey he had today was only his second of the tournament.
Woods is seeking his fifth Masters win, and his 15th major championship. With a win in the Masters, Woods would own sole possession of the second-most Masters wins in tournament history.
His last major win came at the 2008 U.S. Open. He last won the Masters in 2005.
Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau are tied for third at minus-11 overall. Koepka is minus-1 on the day while Finau is even par.
