Rose, Garcia on top at Masters after 3rd round

Rose, Garcia on top at Masters after 3rd round

Rose birdied the par-three 16th to take the advantage, but the Englishman - who won the Olympic gold medal in Rio a year ago - got out of a bunker on 17 only to miss a par putt to leave them tied going down the last.

Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia at the top. I've got half a chance tomorrow if I can get a roll going on the front nine.

The run left Rose tied with Charley Hoffman at 6-under par. "The one place you don't want to miss it on that green is short, which I did".

Rose could use another back nine like he had in the third round.

"It was going to be try and hang on and make sure you didn't play yourself out of the tournament with scoring conditions coming this weekend", Fowler said. "We need one more day of it", Spieth said.

The fiery Spaniard, bidding to end almost two decades of major disappointment, got his day off to brilliant start rolling in a short birdie putt at the first then added another at the third on way to a three-shot lead. Just his luck, the ball bounced softly off the bank and stayed up, and from there the Spaniard hit a tough chip to tap-in range to turn potential bogey into a birdie.

"I t wasn't quite as adventurous as previous Masters have been for me", McIlroy said.

And the 23-year-old Texan, who has finished second, first and tied second in his three Augusta appearances, put himself in the frame again with a nerveless third-round display.

How the US-China Relationship Has Changed Over the Years
Xi refused to speak with the new American president by phone until he agreed to affirm the One China policy. In using such language, Tillerson adopted wholesale the Chinese definition of U.S.

Can you imagine Garcia ending his career drought and winning his first major on Sunday? He will be paired in the final group with Rose, one of his friends. "I think I probably could have shot a 67 or 68, but just a few too many wasted opportunities".

Defending champion Spieth held a five-shot with nine holes to play in 2016 and looked certain to become only the fourth player, after Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods, to win back-to-back Masters titles.

He pulled off a shot Saturday that would have made Arnold Palmer proud, a 4-iron off the pine straw and over the water on the 13th to 30 feet for a two-putt birdie. He posted birdies on No. 8 and No. 15.

Justin Rose stormed into contention to claim a second major title as Jordan Spieth wrote another remarkable chapter in his history with Augusta National.

Nothing irritated him more than the fifth hole. "It leads me to understand everybody's mindset behind me, so it means I have to stay positive tomorrow and continue to play good, aggressive golf". Charley Hoffman sits two strokes back after falling out of the lead for the first time since Thursday after posting a four-under 68 that included a very costly double-bogey at the par-three 16th. But this time he fired a two-under par 70 to match the best of those rounds from 2002 to join England's Rose in Sunday's final pairing with a great chance at a long-sought dream.

Last year, he shot 81 in the third round, his ninth Saturday with a score of 75 or higher.

That includes 2013 victor Adam Scott, alone in seventh place at 3 under, and 2011 victor Charl Schwartzel, who's another stroke back in eighth. He was six shots behind.

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 led after the first round in 2013 before finishing in a tie for eighth, one of just three top-10 finishes at the Masters.
