Molinari grabs Masters lead with Tiger, Finau two back

Share

Francesco Molinari blocked out the buzz from Tiger Woods charging up the US Masters leaderboard and produced solid golf that looks spectacular only on the scorecard, while Aussies Adam Scott and Jason Day lost ground on a dramatic penultimate day at Augusta National.

When he rolled in a 7-foot birdie putt on the par-3 16th, and the massive gallery rose to their feet with yet another ear-splitting roar, Woods became the ninth player who had at least a share of the lead.

Molinari played with Woods on the final day at Carnoustie last summer and outplayed the 14-time major champion amid a crowded leaderboard to win the British Open.

Playing in his third Masters, Cantlay made four birdies on the front nine and four on the back to move to 6-under for the tournament.

My little Tracker heart can hardly take Tiger Woods being in contention for a third consecutive major, yet here we are.

Woods, chasing his first major in 11 years and first Green Jacket since claiming his fourth in 2005, was off to a quiet even-par start through six holes to slip three off the pace.

"The day I don't feel pressure is the day I quit, " he said. His worst putt of the day, ironically, led to a birdie. The eagle came Saturday at the eighth hole Saturday when his 4-iron from 260 yards finished a foot from the pin.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The sliding, perhaps overzealous, security guard meant well, but for a few fleeting, scary moments on Friday afternoon, the scene appeared ominous for Tiger Woods, who was clipped in the right knee and was left hobbling to the 14th green at Augusta National.

"I can't control anything that they're doing with -- whatever they're going to do, they're going to do", said Koepka.

Italy's Francesco Molinari (-13) held a two-short lead after the third round Saturday.

The first group will now head to the first tee at 7:30am local time (12.30pm BST), around an hour and a half earlier than is traditional, and the players will go out in threeballs and using a two-tee start. "The leaders will tee off at 9:20am".

Then he came out of a storm delay to hit the shot of his day.

Koepka, who does not have a top-10 finish in three previous starts at the Masters and missed the event in 2018 due to a wrist injury, was chugging along at one-under on the day when he stepped up to the par-five 15th and gave his Green Jacket hopes a boost. And clean up his play on the par-5s, which have seen him make just three birdies and a bogey and go 2 under on them through two rounds. Bryson DeChambeau, who shared the 18-hole lead with Koepka, went bogey-double bogey around the turn and shot 75.
