Reed builds 3-shot lead over McIlroy at Masters after Round 3

Reed builds 3-shot lead over McIlroy at Masters after Round 3

Woods had two birdies and an eagle on the back and looked like he would get to even par for the event.

Price shot a 9-under 63 in 1986, a mark matched 10 years later by Norman.

Despite coming up short, Spieth became just the seventh player in Masters history to fire a final-round 64.

"I feel like I can go out there and play like I've got nothing to lose".

Spain's Jon Rahm briefly threatened on the back nine, but finished four shots behind in fourth.

And just when Reed was getting away, McIlroy added birdies at 15 and 18 - where he drained a 17-foot birdie putt after a lucky carom off a tree. He's played No. 16 at 2 under this week but has struggled mightily on the par 5s with just three birdies, 12 pars and one bogey. Check out the links below to tune into the Featured Groups channel and watch Woods, McIlroy and Reed - or spend your day surveying Amen Corner or Holes 15&16. But it's not going to affect the outcome of this tournament off of those two holes. He struck the ball well but had difficulty finding the correct line on the greens.

It was the third straight year that there's been at least one ace at the 170-yard hole known as Redbud. Most recent: Matt Kuchar, 16th hole, final round past year. "And I had missed it for the last couple of years".

"You had to ride the momentum and keep it going". "The fans are going to be ready to go, they are going to be ready to cheer for whoever is making putts, whoever is making birdies or pulling off shots".

Low round at Masters is 63 (Nick Price/R3/1986, Greg Norman/R1/1996).

He started the week ranked No. 103 in the world, but should move up several spots after making the cut at golf's first major. And he was headed for a 41 on the front nine until he made a 10-foot par putt. "But Reed has a little experience going for him after facing Rory in the Ryder Cup, so that should help him avoid falling apart".

Paul Casey is having quite a round at Augusta National. He has a shot at the course record shared by Nick Price and Greg Norman. With Woods knowledge of the course and workable greens this Sunday Woods stepped up and made a clean steady stroke.

Woods started the weekend more than a dozen shots out of the lead and knew he would need something special to happen to get back in contention.




Rory McIlroy reacts after his eagle on the eighth hole during the third round at the Masters.

Four-time Masters victor Tiger Woods was left spinning his wheels on Moving Day. It came a few days too late. Jordan Spieth is tied for ninth on the list at four-under, while Bubba Watson is tied for sixth at six-under-par.

Woods had three birdies and three bogeys in Round 3, and any hopes of a miraculous comeback were gone when he opened bogey-bogey and fell to 6 under. The eagle was his first at the week.

Patrick Reed walks up the 18th hole during the third round at the Masters golf tournament Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Augusta, Ga. His most memorable win was a 1-up singles victory over McIlroy, in which they exchanged long birdie putts and cheeky celebrations, before a beered-up crowd that got under McIlroy's skin. He played the Masters for the first time since 2015.

You may notice today that both Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed are wearing bright pink shirts for the final round of the 2018 Masters at Augusta National. Tiger is 4 over and tied for 40th, 18 strokes behind Reed. McIlroy pushed his way, way right but still in bounds.

Those shots provided a brief snippet of what might have been at Augusta National had Woods had better control with his irons.

That's how Reed answered McIlroy.

The final round of a major championship at Augusta National Golf Club provides a different kind of emotional stakes than the final day of an global team event.

Because he's Tiger freakin' Woods, y'all. He missed an 11-footer for bogey.

Woods is 1 under in the final round and 3 over for the tournament.

But a final hole bogey after a terrible tee shot blunted his challenge and left Fowler to take up the mantle with four birdies in his last six holes, coming up just short in his bid for an elusive first major.

"This isn't my first time in this position now".
