The Masters only has one day left. But that day, friends, is Sunday at the Masters. The best time of the sporting calendar is almost to a close, but today was “moving day” at the Masters, where the golfers actually position themselves for the final round.
TIGER WATCH, DAY 3
After not actually being disqualified for moving his ball after yesterday’s water kerfuffle, Tiger Woods was instead penalized two strokes. So, after a decent round today, he finished -3, four shots back of the leader. Woods is still obviously in contention, but Tiger has never won any of his 14 Majors without at least being tied for the lead after Saturday. Put on your red shirt, Tiger. It’s Sunday at the Masters.
LEADERS AFTER SATURDAY
The Nashvillian sensation Brandt Snedeker is in the lead at -7, tied with the former Masters champ Angel Cabrera.
AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE
No Australian has ever won the Masters, even though Greg Norman got real close a few times. But on Sunday, Marc Leishman, Adam Scott and Jason Day are all in the top five and are within two shots of Snedeker and Cabrera’s lead. Can they bring a green jacket back down under, even though they all probably live in Florida?
EVERYBODY HURTS, SATURDAY EDITION
Rory McIlroy’s positive momentum going into Masters week was totally squashed today after shooting a 79.
Finally and the most sad, Fred Couples went from the top of the leaderboard all the way down to 18th after a 77 on Saturday.
