Fowler sits 3rd at Masters: 'Right where I'm supposed to be'

One shot off the lead is Rickie Fowler, who shot 71 and is in his best position to win his first major.

Hoffman will be in the final group going into the weekend at the Masters for the second time in three years, with one big difference.

There are quite a few certainties at the Masters - Amen Corner, green jackets, fast greens, pimento cheese sandwiches.

SPIETH SHOW Jordan Spieth (68) was two shots back and will be in the penultimate group today.

Spieth has one victory and two second-place finishes here in his only three Masters appearances. A stunning eagle on 15 saw the Spaniard become the equal leader before Rose edged ahead again with a birdie on 16. "I'm nearer than I was, but who knows?" "This is a new experience for me, coming from behind on Sunday at the Masters, which is kind of fun to say".

"You've got to be aggressive at times, but this is a course where you've got to pick your moments". But really, it starts on the back nine on Sunday.

Garcia, Fowler and England's Westwood are each hoping to finally land one of golf's four most prestigious tournaments.

"Everybody knows with this back nine, anything can happen", Hoffman said.

"As in any tournament, I just like to get within three or four shots on a Sunday afternoon". He picked up two more on the par 5s and finished with birdie putts of 20 feet and 12 feet on the last two holes for a 5-under 67.




SHOT OF THE DAY: Garcia gambled and appeared to come up a big loser when his second shot at the par-5 13th wound up short and right of the green in Rae's Creek. Garcia pitched up to within a foot for a tap-in birdie that could have easily been a bogey.

Fortunately for me, that bank seems to be a tiny bit longer this year.

Rose lovingly patted Garcia's cheek before they embraced.

Rose, who made seven birdies and had the day's best round (67), nearly felt as though he won the Masters two years ago when he shot 14-under 274 and finished second behind Spieth's record-tying score of 270. Pieters, who went into Saturday sharing the four-way lead with Garcia, Fowler and Hoffman, double-bogeyed the par-4 11th and bogeyed the par-4 18th to wind up with a 75. "It's honestly something I still think about every day".

"I don't think so".

After the first round at this year's Masters, Jordan Spieth had about as much chance of winning another green jacket as the Patriots did of winning another Lombardi Trophy in the third quarter of Super Bowl LI. "You just have to roll with it and realize sometimes you're going to get good breaks and sometimes you get not-so-good breaks". Two holes later, he almost holed a wedge from the 15th fairway.

"No matter what happens at the end, we will have a chance to win with a really good round", said Spieth, who is showing nil scarring from the five-shot lead he blew previous year with the help of that quadruple bogey-7 at the par-3,12th. Now I have a chance of winning the tournament I dreamed of as a kid. "I didn't know going into my first one if I would have five chances in my life", Spieth said. The 2013 U.S. Open champion and European Ryder Cup hero could have shot the low round each of the first two days but his game just wouldn't fire on all cylinders.

Unsurprisingly it was a par-five which played the easiest, with the 13th regaining its title from the opening day. At 3 under is 2013 champion Adam Scott (69) and at 2 under is 2011 champion Charl Schwartzel. Lee Westwood, a runner-up past year, also had a 68 and was five shots back. It might be world No. 2 Rory McIlroy, who is at even par and has yet to break 70 this week. He was six shots behind. Hoffman lost his lead when he made double bogey on No. 16. Phil Mickelson, 46, started the day four shots off the lead but shot 74 and is now eight back.
