Tiger Woods ended up tying for fourth place with a five-under 283. He posted a two-under 70 Sunday, following up two bogeys with four birdies down the stretch. The four-time Masters champion posted even par in each of his last three holes at the tournament.
Woods had notched six top-10 finishes at Augusta in the last seven years since winning in 2005, but he placed 40th last year. He came within reach of his fifth career green jacket Sunday but ultimately wasn't able to do enough to emerge victorious.
Brandt Snedeker, the world No. 5, finished in a tie for sixth place with a four-under 284. The 32-year-old American notched three birdies to six bogeys Sunday for a three-over 75. He placed third at Augusta in 2008 but hadn't finished better than 15th since then.
Matt Kuchar, the world No. 10, ended up tying for eighth place Sunday with a three-under 285. The 34-year-old finished in third place last year at Augusta. Kuchar has four top-10 finishes in nine PGA Tour events this year.
Lee Westwood, the world No. 13, notched his fourth career top-10 finish Sunday at Augusta. The 39-year-old has yet to win a major in his career, despite a successful career overall on the PGA Tour.
Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Luke Donald, Louis Oosthuizen, Steve Stricker and Phil Mickelson—all top-10 players—put in disappointing efforts. McIlroy, Rose and Donald each posted a score of two-over 290 for the tournament. Stricker finished with a one-over 289. Oosthuizen actually missed the cut with a six-over 150 through two days.
