3rd round at Masters a day of wasted chances for McIlroy

"It was a joy to play today", said Rose, who captured the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion and the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro last summer. Caddie Michael Greller pushed for a layup from 228 yards, and Spieth agreed that was the smart shot.

Jordan Spieth reacts to a missed putt on the 15th hole during the second round of the Masters golf tournament Friday, April 7, 2017, in Augusta, Ga. He finished with two more pars to end up at 4-under for the day and the tournament. Garcia and Fowler will have nerves to battle in pursuit of their first major.

If you're wondering, no one has ever won the Masters with a triple bogey on his scorecard.

"I've been coming from behind since the 15 on the first round all week and we've grinded it out to give ourselves a chance to win this tournament".

It's a crowd at the top of the Masters leaderboard and one of the contenders, Rickie Fowler, hardly went out on a limb when he predicted more of the same for Sunday's final round. Here's what to know about the top seven, and remember, Sunday's coverage on CBS begins at 1 p.m. ET.

Jordan Spieth (speeth) has climbed into contention despite opening with a 3-over 75. I have an opportunity and that's all that you want, but it all starts on the back nine. That's all you want. Rose birdied five of his last seven holes to shoot a 31 on the back nine.

Rose, victor of the 2013 US Open, said the course was in magnificent shape and gave him the opportunity to be rewarded for playing great golf, reports Efe. But birdies on the two par fives on the back nine allowed him to shoot a 71, leaving him at five under. It was a roar of a day to finish with a 67 and get to the top of the leaderboard.

On No. 13, Garcia thought he put his second shot in the water that guards the green. "You can make birdies, eagles, bogeys".

"I've definitely had some good breaks throughout three rounds", Garcia said. Good shots were rewarded, but if you got sloppy you could get on the wrong side. Fowler was up-and-down early but maintained down the stretch, going 2-under over his final five holes. Pieters's 68 was tied with Martin Kaymer for the second-lowest round of the day (Rickie Fowler shot 67).

He will be paired with Spieth in the penultimate group. "After the first round, I couldn't ask for much better than this". I'm right handed. I could see the right edge on the tower, but my ball, the actual shot wasn't blocked.

He was close to the same spot where Phil Mickelson, his playing partner in Saturday's third round, went for broke on the par-5 hole in the final round in 2010 and went on to win, guaranteeing a place for that shot in Masters lore.

Then Spieth proceeded to pull off a Palmer-like shot, fading a 4-iron into the middle of the green. Two holes later, he almost holed a wedge from the 15th fairway.

Lurking two shots adrift, Spieth - who has finished 2nd-1st-2nd in his three Masters appearances - claimed his final round approach would be an aggressive one.

Charley Hoffman, the first-round leader and second-round co-leader, had a two-shot lead with five holes to play Saturday. "We fought back tremendously to have a chance to win the tournament".

"I feel like I know this golf course really well", he said.

After a brutal double-bogey on the par-3 16th hole, Charley Hoffman settled for an even-par 72 Saturday to finish at 4 under. Kaymer is 10 strokes off the lead at four-over-par. And Masters winners Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel are also in fine position, three shots and two shots off the lead, respectively. Lee Westwood, a runner-up previous year, also had a 68 and was five shots back.

"I think it's going to be tough for someone to really run and distance themselves too much, with the possibilities of what you can do on the back nine", he said.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, who can complete the Career Grand Slam with a victory Sunday, needs a big rally after shooting 71 and is six back in a tie for 11th that includes rookie Jon Rahm of Spain, who came in at 73. He was six shots behind.

The Northern Irishman, 27, made a strong start with birdies on the second and third, only to be set back by three-putts on the fifth and seventh which cost him a bogey and double bogey.
