Reed responds to McIlroy's Masters surge

Reed responds to McIlroy's Masters surge

He was at 14-under 202.

That said, there will be anticipation for what a pair of willing pugilists like Reed and McIlroy can provide playing side by side.

"It's going to be awesome to come out tomorrow and have a lot of Augusta State guys out here cheering me on", Reed said - although he noted that the stately confines of Augusta National would make for a far different experience than a rowdy Ryder Cup. Still without a major title, Fowler now has two top-5 finishes at Augusta National. He will be chased by McIlroy, who needs a Masters victory to complete a career grand slam.

"I've had some success in this comeback and I'm getting there", Woods said. "I feel like I learned an bad lot that day and hopefully I can put that into practice tomorrow", McIlroy is quoted as saying by Golf.com.

McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm each shot 65 to get within striking distance of Reed. Rahm crept to within two of the lead on the back nine Sunday, but a water ball on the par-5 15th ended his hopes. As Woods approached the par-5 15th he came in with confidence at the tee. "I haven't capitalized throughout the week like I know I can, but I'm still in position to have a really nice tournament, so I'm going to keep hanging in there". He posted red numbers on Nos. He's played the course's longest holes at 13 under this week, better than anyone else in the field.

It's the fifth time in 46 holes that Reed strung together back-to-back-to-back birds.

Unlike Woods, Phil Mickelson didn't find any humor in his round.

Woods hit one shot into a cluster of magnolia trees and another into Rae's Creek. He is at 7-over 223 heading into the final 18 holes Sunday.

A look at Rory McIlroy's Sunday ensemble for the 2018 Masters. You'll need a VPN to watch either the BBC or the Sky Sports coverage of the masters. "You can never have enough crystal", he said, adding the day "wasn't a total loss" despite being one shot out of last place. He punched out, missed the green and wound up with a triple bogey.

There's a new name near the top of the leaderboard at the Masters.

Reed closely missed a number of putts on the back nine as Spieth roared to a final-round record-tying 64. McIlroy responded with a dramatic fist pump while biting his bottom lip. He made a birdie there, with his splash out of the front bunker, and another at the 8th, with a pin-point pitch in.

His second shot found the green easily but left Woods a tough breaking putt. The shot would have rolled well past the hole, but it hit the stick and dropped in for a 3. Reed had a three-shot lead.




"Hopefully I can hit my irons better".

On the third day of the Masters, Russell Henley finally arrived. Henley arrived back Augusta late that night and teed off in the first round of the Masters at 12:32 p.m. with Shubhankar Sharma and 1987 Masters champion Larry Mize.

"It won't be quite as intense as that Ryder Cup match, I don't think", said McIlroy, who shot 65 on Saturday. "And I had missed it for the last couple of years".

If the golfers in the top 10 ease their nerves from the start, we could be in for an exciting few hours of golf, as some of the lowest scorers from the first three rounds attack the course.

Once a maestro over Augusta National's four par-5 holes, Woods is simply a mess now, 1-under on them for the week with two bogeys and a birdie Saturday. "My swing is just off with my irons, just at the wrong time".

The 42-year-old Woods is playing the Masters for the first time since 2015.

The former world No. 1 is returning to competitive golf after a fourth back surgery.

Jordan Spieth is making a huge move in the final round of the Masters.

And Reed replied: "I am leading". "I'm just not doing it".

Patrick Reed walks up the 18th hole during the third round at the Masters golf tournament Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Augusta, Ga.

There are manually-operated leaderboards at certain holes that show where each player in that group is at in relation to par for the tournament, including the big one just south of the clubhouse that lists players' score as they make the turn.

Three-time Masters victor Phil Mickelson, one of the pre-tournament favorites, wrapped up one of his most disappointing appearances in the Masters with his best round of the week, a 67, to finish at 2 over.
