Rose, Garcia tied for lead at Masters

Rose, Garcia tied for lead at Masters

He'll enter Sunday tied with Justin Rose at 6 under. Seeing a Green Jacket laid across an empty chair when the honorary starters kicked off the tournament was an emotional reminder that one of the game's most legendary figures would no longer shake hands, tell stories and make memories with us all.

Rose, the 2013 US Open champion, conjured up seven birdies, including a pair at the last two holes, in a day's best round of 67. "That was by far the most resilient I've ever been on a golf course in my life", Spieth said. "(Sunday) is a huge day". I have an opportunity.

"My mentality has changed a little bit, the way I'm taking things, particularly this week at Augusta", he said. A one-shot lead starting the day doesn't mean much. "I've been playing good golf and I'm really happy with where I'm at". Sunday would have been the 60th birthday of Seve Ballesteros, Garcia's mentor and countryman, who passed away at the age of 54. It was bigger than today's in my opinion because it gave me that chance.

"We don't know what the lead will be, but I've moved up the leaderboard. You know, it would be nice to have a chance and hopefully do it".

And his Ryder Cup teammate Sergio Garcia, who will "have a great opportunity".

However, he is back with an outside chance after converting six birdies in a four-under-par 68.

Charley Hoffman, the first-round leader and second-round co-leader, had a two-shot lead with five holes to play on Saturday.

Fowler knows he faces a daunting leaderboard Sunday, from Rose and Garcia ahead of him, to 2015 Masters champion Jordan Spieth, who is in a three-way tie for fourth behind him, to 2013 Masters victor Adam Scott, who is seventh at 3 under. Spieth made a quadruple bogey in the opening round. Spieth found himself in the same situation Friday and yesterday, and his combined 7-under those two days have put him in position to see the Patriots as a reason to believe he can win here for the second time in three years. "I plan to play aggressive at this point".

But it was the 11th hole where he three-putted from 5 feet, and a double bogey removed him from the list of viable contenders. He'd also bogeyed No. 14, and played his final five holes in 3-over.

Like, what is the next thing? Yesterday, we learned about the console's ability to enhance Forza 6 with PC settings. The blog post also confirms the fact that Xbox One games will be playable on the Project Scorpio console.

It was mission accomplished for Adam Scott on Saturday as the Australian put on a clinical display of precise ball-striking at the U.S Masters to sneak within striking distance of a second Green Jacket with a second successive three-under 69.

Lee Westwood and Thomas Pieters are tied for ninth place at 215. "I felt like I played really well all week", said Rose, who finished runner-up to Spieth in 2015.

Hoffman, who opened with a 65 to claim the biggest 18-hole Masters edge since 1955, made five bogeys in six holes but the American birdied 13 and parred in from there to cling to a share of first.

This is just another typical Sunday at the Masters for Spieth, who has finished second, first and second in his three starts. "We fought back tremendously to have a chance to win the tournament".

"After the first round (75), I couldn't ask for much better than this", Spieth said after the third round. "But at the same time I've been on both sides of it now and I like the winning side better, so I'm certainly going to go for broke".

Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia will take a one-shot lead into the final round of The Masters. Right ahead of them will be Fowler and Spieth, who are also good friends. Last year, the Masters was won by Briton Danny Willett.

He will be paired with Spieth in the penultimate group.

The two veterans seeking to become the oldest Masters champions slid down the leaderboard Saturday.
