If the Masters Tournament Play Weekend looks something like the first two rounds, then we’re about to end an exciting one at Augusta National Golf Club.
Justin Rose is in control at the top of the standings before Round 3-7 under par, the same score he carded after one lap. Things looked dire in the second round when he carded four bogeys out of the top nine, but he overcame the poor start with four birdies – three of the bottom nine – to even finish for the lap.
He stayed one step ahead of second place golfers Will Zalatoris and Brian Harman, who are 6 cents over two rounds. It shows just how perilous the greens can be at the Masters – and how incredibly good golfers will have to play to win golf’s most historic major.
And the greens will only accelerate as play continues into moving day. Rose certainly doesn’t have enough head start to rest on her hips. Marc Leishman and Jordan Spieth are tied for third place at 5 under; Bernd Wiesberger, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Champ and Hidekyi Matsuma are tied for sixth at 4 under.
It’s always anyone’s tournament. Sporting News follows live scores updates and highlights from Masters 2021 leaders and featured groups. Follow for the full results of Saturday’s Round 3 at Augusta National.
