AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The Latest on the Masters (all times local):

___

2:45 p.m.

Masters rookie Min Woo Lee is off to a hot start in the final round of the tournament.

The 23-year-old Lee shot a 6-under 30 on the front nine to surge into red numbers. Lee eagled the par-5 second hole after an approach shot that landed 4 feet from the cup. He then added a string of birdies at Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9 to get to 2 under overall.

Woo made the cut in his first Masters right on the number at 4-over 148. He put together an even-par 72 on Saturday.

The best round at Augusta National this week is 5-under 67. That is well within reach for Woo, who made the turn to the back nine around the time leader Scottie Scheffler began his final round in a quest for his first major title.

Tiger Woods just played a shot left-handed. He didn't have much of a choice.

Woods' second shot on the par-5 13th missed the green to the left and the ball came to a stop at the edge of some high grass and pine straw. If that wasn't bad enough, it also was basically at the edge of a bush. And Woods had no place to stand to play his third shot.

He thought about playing the ball right-handed from very far back in his stance, then went to the other side of the ball, flipped his wedge upside down and hoped for the best. The ball advanced a few feet onto the green, leaving Woods a very long birdie try.

He sent that putt about 6 feet past the hole, then made the comebacker for par. Woods was 3 over for the day at that point, 10 over for the tournament with five holes remaining.

12:50 p.m.

Tiger Woods has nine holes left to play at the Masters.

The former world No. 1 and five-time Masters champion is clearly laboring as he walks the course at Augusta National. He's been using his clubs as makeshift canes on some of his walks, gently leaning on them from time to time.

He played the front nine in 2-over 38 on Sunday. That dropped him to 9 over for the tournament — good at that point for 46th place among the 52 players who made the cut.

Barring a very big rally, Woods will post his highest 72-hole score ever at the Masters. He shot 5-over 293 as an amateur in his Masters debut while finishing tied for 41st in 1995, then shot the same in 2012 when he slogged to a tie for 40th place.

10:50 a.m.

Tiger Woods has teed off in his final round of this year's Masters.

Wearing his traditional Sunday red, Woods started the day 7 over for the tournament and obviously not in contention. The five-time Masters champion began the day 16 shots behind leader Scottie Scheffler.

This was Woods' first official tournament since the pandemic-delayed Masters in November 2020. He had back surgery not long after that and then in February 2021 nearly lost his right leg when he crashed his car in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

Woods has been walking with a pronounced limp this week, but still defied long odds simply by getting back to Augusta National and able to play again. He's playing Sunday with reigning U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm.

___

10:25 a.m.

Masters Sunday has arrived, and the first pairings are on the course at Augusta National.

Forecasters expect a warmer day for the final round of the Masters. There was some frost in the Augusta area overnight, but players who were playing Sunday morning at the Masters clearly didn't have as many layers of attire on as many did on Saturday when temperatures struggled to get out of the 40's.

Scottie Scheffler takes a three-shot lead into the final round. He'll tee off at 2:40 p.m. along with Cameron Smith.

Defending champion Hideki Matsuyama starts tied for 14th and begins at 1:10 p.m.

Tiger Woods begins his final round at 10:50 a.m.
