Tiger Woods in position to end 11 year drought

Tiger Woods in position to end 11 year drought

The final group at the Masters usually tees off around 3pm Finau, who trails Molinari by two, played in the last group at last year's US Open. and said killing the morning can be a painful process. Golf's organizing bodies often lack common sense in these situations, and Lord knows Augusta National's leaders have made their share of bad decisions over the years.

Veteran Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, believes he could find new glory at the Masters. "I was just very patient today, felt very good to be out there doing what I was doing. This is now three straight majors that I've been in the mix and so it's good stuff", Woods said.

The 43-year-old, who was second in the US PGA last year and briefly led the Open in his comeback season from spine fusion surgery, played in a manner reminiscent of his pomp, with fierce driving, pin-point iron play, some impressive recovery shots and several key putts.

He took advantage of the break, punching his second shot to wedge range and then skipping his next up to set up a birdie. But nearly immediately the siren sounded to suspend play because of a threat of thunderstorms.

While Woods settled for being in a pack one adrift with second-ranked Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and South African Justin Harding, there was no doubt he was the star to crowds glued to his every move.

"It's been a while since I've been in contention here", Woods said. Woods got going with a birdie at the par-3 sixth, rolling in an 18-footer.

Tiger Woods is in position to claim his first major title in 11 years, after a record-breaking third round of the Masters. Also, here's our complete TV coverage and live streaming guide for the Masters.

"You've got to be committed, hit the proper shots and then hopefully I time it right".

Tottenham confirm 'significant' Kane ligament injury
Kane suffered a similar injury earlier this season against Manchester United in January which kept him out for just over a month. He saw a specialist on Thursday and is more likely to return for next week's second leg against Manchester City .


He's now two shots off the leaders: Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele and Webb Simpson all sit at nine-under.

Italy's Francesco Molinari (-13) held a two-short lead after the third round Saturday. Cantlay's previous best round at Augusta National was a 71.

It's a huge day for Finau, who not only gets to chase the green jacket but will do so while playing alongside his childhood idol in Woods.

The 29-year-old American joins five others - Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, K.J. Choi, Gary Woodland and Mickelson - who have all carded 30 over the first nine.

Barely able to walk after throwing out his back bending over to kiss his daughter on the practice range on Thursday, the battling Australian somehow turned in a near flawless scorecard, with six birdies and a single bogey. I just made too many mistakes.

"Walking this golf course was a little bit tough but it loosened nicely", Day told Sky Sports after round two. He will certainly feel the pressure, he said, because he cares deeply about his legacy and his craft.

"It gives you confidence".
