Fowler sits 3rd at Masters: 'Right where I'm supposed to be'

Fowler sits 3rd at Masters: 'Right where I'm supposed to be'

Sergio Garcia (-6) - +400 - The Spaniard has gone through a lot over his career with multiple close calls and excruciating finishes at majors. He picked up two more on the par 5s and finished with birdie putts of 20 feet and 12 feet on the last two holes for 5-under 67.

The Masters third round featured big moves by Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth. He also pulled off a shot from the pine straw on the 13th by telling his caddie, "What would Arnie do?" Spieth could have been forgiven for playing safe, but smashed a long iron onto the green from 230 yards and narrowly missed the eagle putt. Rose is playing in the final group at the Masters for the second time in three years.

World No.6 and 2015 Masters victor Jordan Spieth suffered a bogey on his opening hole and has dropped another to slump to two under. Garcia made bogey, dropping him to 3 under.

"Everybody has a storyline and I'm not even touching upon past champions who are right there, as well".

Rose is one of four previous major winners in the top 10 going into Sunday's final round, which will be live and uninterrupted on BBC Two from 19:00 BST. Spieth could punch out and lay up, leaving a wedge shot that he'd have to execute perfectly to secure a birdie. "Hopefully I can keep trending that way", Rose said. "You still need to play smart when you have to". But really, it starts on the back nine on Sunday.

"I think it's the kind of place that if you are trying to fight against it, it's going to beat you down", Garcia said.

The continually-underrated Rose had been biding his time before he got hot on the back nine. He finished with a 75 and is five shots back at 1 under.

Day has struggled in recent weeks, his best finish in his last three tournaments was a tie for 23rd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month.

Garcia hung his head in the 13th fairway when his 4-iron shot disappeared off a bank toward the tributary of Rae's Creek.

He then chipped to a foot and made the birdie. "Because it gives you the possibility of getting a break like that". Both are at 6-under par 210.

Garcia, who began the day as one of four co-leaders, produced a two-under-par round to remain out in front alongside Rose.

Fowler was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the third round started Saturday. That's all you want but really it starts on the back nine on Sunday. "I don't think anyone will put themselves too far out in front where they can cruise in". Good shots were rewarded, but if you got sloppy you could get on the wrong side. He almost holed a wedge from the fairway on the 15th for another birdie and wound up with a 68.

Day 3 at Augusta National was an exciting one. The 23-year-old Texan had a two-shot lead with 11 holes to play in his debut in 2014 before Bubba Watson overtook him.

"Waking up and you have a chance to win your favorite tournament that you've dreamt of winning and competing in since you were a kid, and to be able to have your fourth opportunity now ..." "I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I don't even know how much it would mean to be able to join both my idols as a Masters victor".

Charley Hoffman was tied for the lead until he found the water on the par-three 16 hole, leading to two dropped shots - the American is two shots off the pace. The 2013 U.S. Open champion and European Ryder Cup hero could have shot the low round each of the first two days but his game just wouldn't fire on all cylinders.

Also challenging were Australian Adam Scott, the 2013 victor, at three under, with 2011 champion Charl Schwartzel of South Africa another shot back.

The four-time major victor, who needs to win the Masters to complete the career grand slam, hit a superb pitch to three feet but missed the par putt to leave himself five shots off the lead.
