Kieran Quaile
Update:
Scottie Scheffler is 18 holes away from his first ever major title. He will have to hold off Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im in the final round from Augusta.

Augusta Masters 2022 - Day 3 as it happened

The world’s top ranked golfer is heading into Sunday at The Masters on top of the leaderboard from Augusta National. Scottie Scheffler shot a 71 in the third round to bring him into Sunday at -9.

Scheffler leading going into final round

Scheffler crept out to a commanding lead on Friday and maintained his cushion over the competition for the entirety of Saturday.  His third round started off with a bang as he posted two birdies in his first three holes.

The second and third hole were there for the taking, and many of the competitors took advantage of the courteous pin placements throughout moving day.

The Par 3  fourth would give Scheffler his first bogey in 19 holes. Every time it seemed like the closest contenders, Charles Schwartzel or Cameron Smith for the most part, came within striking distance the Dallas, Texas resident would extend the lead with timely birdies. That is, until the end of the third round.

Scheffler looking for first major

This year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open winner had bogeys on 12, 14 and 15 and the boat started to rock. A birdie on 17 got him back to double digits under par, but his drive on the final hole found the bushes and had to take a drop. He settled for a bogey to close out a third round 71.

Cameron Smith had the round of the day shooting a 68 on moving day. Smith had enjoyed himself on a particular stretch in the back nine. Before the a bogey on 16, the Australian was -6 through holes 12-16. He sit in sole possession of second at -6 for the tournament. He is now in sole possession of second place at -6 on the tournament and will be in the final pairing with Scheffler.

Tiger Woods has had some memorable moments in his comeback to professional golf, but the final three holes will be three to forget. He had already had a tough day after shooting three over on the front nine. Back-to-back birdies on 12 and 13 sparked a few Tiger roars around Augusta, but they were short lived as Woods doubled the eighteenth to finish four over on 16, 17 and 18.

Defending champ Matsuyama fades

Charles Schwartzel had the shot of the round when he holed in a eagle on the tenth hole, but had bogeys on four of the last eight holes to finish at -2 for the tournament following his 73 in the third round.

Last year’s Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama fizzled out after coming into the day at -3. He shot 77, and his shot at defending his Masters title is looking out of reach going into Sunday.

Sungjae Im finished with four birdies on the back nine to get back in the race. He goes into Sunday at -4 after a third round 71.

The world’s number one ranked golfer has the lead going into Sunday at The Masters.  He will have to fend off Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im to win his first major title.

Scheffler had a bumpy ride in, but he leads by three going into the final round.

Cameron Smith waited until the back nine to start his move up the leaderboard.

Scottie kept the ship steady through the front nine.

Until Charles Schwartzel did this on 10.

Zalatoris had the shot of the day...

Tiger bounced back from a bogey with a birdie on the second. That was one of few bright spots for Woods on Saturday.

Charles Schwartzel had the shot of the round when he holed in a eagle on the tenth hole, but had bogeys on four of the last eight holes to finish at -2 for the tournament following his 73 in the third round.

Last year’s Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama fizzled out after coming into the day at -3. He shot 77, and his shot at defending his Masters title is looking out of reach going into Sunday.

Sungjae Im finished with four birdies on the back nine to get back in the race. He goes into Sunday at -4 after a third round 71.

The world’s number one ranked golfer has the lead going into Sunday at The Masters.  He will have to fend off Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im to win his first major title.

Scheffler leads by three strokes

Scheffler settles for a bogey on 18 to bring him back to nine under. All things considered, a bogey from where he was after his drop is a damn good result. After an eventful 71 on Saturday he heads into Sunday at the Masters with a three shot lead.

Scheffler on damage control

Quite the shot from Scheffler out of the pine straw reach the green and have his ball roll feet from the cup. He'll have to chip back on after shooting the green, but has a good look at a bogey 5.

Leader to take a drop on 18

Scheffler is going to take a drop from outside the bushes setting up his second shot.

Scheffler in the shrubs on 18

Scheffler is in trouble off the tee on 18. Just when it seemed he had righted the ship, his drive goes deep in the brush and he's weighing his options for his second shot. He may have to return to the tee.

Im in with a 71

Sungjae Im is house at -4 after a third round 71. He will head into Sunday in third after boucing back from a four over start with five birdies on the final eleven holes.

Scheffler bounces back

Schwartzel with yet another bogey and he has essentially taken himself out of contention for tomorrow by bogeying four of his last five.

Scheffler with a big bouce back after the long two put to save par on 16. He birdies 17 after a risky second shot lands over the green side bunker and  rolls to with in five feet.

 

Rough stretch for Schwartzel

Schwartzel (-3) going south, while Im (-4) is rising to end the third round. The South African had a shot at birdie from 13 feet, but blew it past the whole and missed the tap in to take him even for the day. While Im birdied 15 and 17 to give him sole possession of third place.

Scheffler saves par to stop bleeding

Scheffler just had a putt that, if he wins tomorrow, might be the one he looks back on thinking "that's the shot that won me The Masters."

His tee shot on the Par 3 16th hit the hill and trickled nearly 40 feet from the pin. He snuck to within 2 feet of the cup and saved par and stopped the bogey streak.

Johnson finishes with 75

DJ with a disappointing finish after a bumpy day. He ends bogey-bogey to head into Sunday at +1 following a third round 75.

Smith in at -6

Cameron Smith avoided serious problems on 18 when he drove his ball into the trees but got a very generous bounce back into the fairway. While he did have to use a fairway wood on his second shot because considerable distance was cut off his drive. He over shot the green on his second, but got up and down from a tough angle to secure a third round 68.

Three bogeys in last four for leader

Scheffler is back to -9 after his third bogey in the last four holes. We talked about him having to hold on, but that is proving to be a tough task for the world's number 1.

Hang on, Scottie!

Understandably the nerves are starting to surface for Scheffler. He has two bogeys in his last three holes, after 26 holes with just one bogey.

He's got to hang on for another four holes to keep a comfortable lead over the rest of the field heading into Sunday.

From nearly chipping in to dropping a shot

Scheffler was inches away from his approach staying up on the 14th green, but the back spin drew it all the way down the front side hill. He nearly hit the pin with his chip for the birdie, but left some meat on the bone for par. He missed the 13 footer to drop back to -10. The American still has a four stroke lead over Smith who is on 18.

Smith was within three strokes after a birdie at 15, but gave it right back on the next hole.

Leaderboard Master Day 2

Here is the leaderboard as of 6:12 p.m. ET courtesy of our friends at Masters.com

Smith drops a shot at 16

Smith with his first bogey on holes 12-16 on the Par 3 sixteeth. Thats a big swing for both the Aussie and Scheffler who just birdied. He is now five shots off the lead at -6 following his failed attempt to get up and down after plunking his tee shot in the sand.

Scottie out of the woods

In the end Scheffler wasn't in trouble at all. He got a generous lie after his poor drive, was in exactly the position you want to be on your third shot if you lay up on the Par 5. His chip snapped back to the pin to within five feet and he nailed the birdie to get back to -11.

Smith closes gap to three strokes

Cameron Smith continues his tear through holes 12-16 with another birdie on the Par 5 fifteenth. He laid up before the green front pond and put his 80 yard chip to within five feet. He is three back of the leader, Scheffler (-10) who is in trouble on 13.

Trobule at the top?

Uh-oh. Scheffler just tried to play a BIG draw on 13, and got it all wrong. He didn't get around the ball, his foot slipped and ended up well wide of the fairway. He's on a Par 5 so he'll have time to make it up, but the last few holes have shown that Scheffler isn't made of steel. The nerves of early spring in Augusta may starting to get to the number one player in the world.

Smith has four hole to go and would love to close the gap from four to two before his day is done.

Scheffler back to -10

Scheffler put his Par 3 12th tee shot in the front bunker, and overshot the green on his sand shot. A delicate uphill putt from the fringe allowed him to avoid anything worse than a bogey. It may not seem like it but holes like that are what win Major Championships. That was his first bit of danger almost all day, and he handled it with a calm certainty of a champion.

Let down after hole out

Schwartzel almost put his second shot on the Par 4 eleventh into the next tee box. His chip with very little green to work with was nicely placed, but not nicely enough as he two putts for bogey. He's back to -5, currently behind Smith (-6) and Scheffler (-11).

Tiger won't be making any Sunday noise

A final three holes to forget for Tiger (+7) who doubles the last hole and finishes with a six over 76.

Back-to-back for DJ

Two birds in a row for Dustin Johnson to finish up Amen Corner. He's back under par after spinning his third shot back below the hole and sinking the 8 foot put to get him to -1 on the tournament. 

Leader board 1 friday

The leaderboard as of 5:28 p.m. ET. Scheffler has a commanding lead, but Schwartzel and Smith are looking to make a late charge.

Deja vu for Smith?

The Aussie with a clinical birdie after laying up on his second shot of the Par 5 13th. It's the first time he's birdied that hole this week, but he was -6 on holes 12-16 on Thursday and Friday.

DJ at E

We don't want to get too leader centric, no matter how much Scottie Scheffler would enjoy that, so we'll check in with Dustin Johnson who rebounded after four bogeys with a birdie at the 12th to get back to even par.

Scottie is halfway home

Scheffler starts his back nine the same way he started his front nine, whit a par. He has eight holes to try to keep or extend his five stroke lead, but the other guy his the pairing Charles Schwartzel might have something to say about that.

Shot of the day from Schwartzel

Schwartzel holes out from 136 on the Par 4 tenth hole. He had been quitely flying under the radar but is three under in his last three holes after his eagle on 10. He's -6 on the tournament and now five shots back.

Augusta starting to shine

The sun is starting to peak it's head out of the Georgia sky which could just make the rest of the round a bit more pleasant for those looking to close the gap on the leaderboard.

DJ falling down the leaderboard

Dustin Johnson has fallen off after getting to -3 with an early birdie on two. Since then he's had four bogeys and is now been put on the back burner of potential threats to Scheffler.

Smith in final group on Sunday?

Cameron Smith is on the Par 5 thirteenth. He is currently the closest contender to the scorching Scottie Scheffler (-11) at -5. He could make Sunday very interesting with a strong finish. He had three straight birdies on 14, 15, 16 in the first round and would be loving a repeat of Friday's finish

Last year's Masters Champ slipping

Whle Charles Schwartzel, who is paired with our lead Scheffler, is under par for the day the defending champion Hikedi Matsuyama has dropped off after starting the day at -3. He is currently four over on the round and is now over par for the tournament.

Check out how smooth this swing is. Scottie Scheffler is not playing like a guy leading The Masters. He's playing like a sharp shooter you find on the driving range of your local course wiping everyone's wallets clean.

Up to -11

Scheffler is back on the birdie train. He drove his tee shot into the bunker, but had a wonderful chip with his third shot to sneak it snug to the cup. He is now six shot clear of the closest contender Cameron Smith.

Zalatoris staying in the mix

Will Zalatoris is the sole man at -2 at the moment. He finished the front nine with an even par 36 after three bogeys and three birdies. He had one of the shots of the day on the 5th hole.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

Cameron Smith (-5) was leading this tournament briefly on Thursday, and is back within a whiff of Scheffler after birdies in three of his last five holes. He and Lowry remain 5 shots back of the lead.

In the hunt or not, seeing Tiger with back-to-back to birdies on 12 and 13 is such a refreshing sight. This is a guy who wasn't sure if he'd walk normally ever again not too long ago. He's now back at level to compete with the best players in the world. A remarkable comeback, but at this point nothing Tiger does surprises us.

It's been a rough day for John Rahm who was last year's darling to win after he and his wife gave birth to their first born son. He had a chance coming into today at +2, but he's four over on the day with two holes to go.

No matter what happens this weekend, he will always have the best hole in one in Augusta history.

Back-to-back birdie for Tiger

With nothing to lose, he goes for the green on 13 and leaves himself an east two putt for birdie. He's far from being in the hunt, but the gallery will want him to finish around even to make Sunday interesting.

Scheffler back to -10

Everytime someone brings the lead to under five, Scheffler responds with a birdie like he did on the Par 3 sixth. He left his tee shot high of the hole and had a downhill putt from 17 feet which he sank to get back to double digits under par.

`Here comes Shane

Lowry snuck his tee shot on the Par 3 6th over the green front bunker and sank his 16 foot putt to keep things snug at the top. Lowry's best finish at Augusta is T-21 which came last year. He's looking to vastly improve on that number this weekend. He's at -5, four shots behind the leader.

It ain't easy being on top

For as comfortable of a lead as Scottie Scheffler has, he will soon figure out how difficult it is to hold a lead on the weekend in the Masters.

All eyes will be on him. He's got a nice cushion, and knows that he's in a great position to win the tournament but there's still a lot of golf still to play. If he let's the rest of the field back into this tournament it will be on his own accord.

Tiger with a rare birdie this round

We hear our first Tiger roar of the day after Woods birdies 12. He has fallen way back, but still draws a crowd and his birdies are still heard all around the course. He's now at +4.

Scheffler bogeys again after 19 holes

Well, Scheffler obliges the rest of the fields hopes with a bogey on the Par 3 fourth. His tee shot rolled off the back of the green and the number 1 ranked golfer in the world couldn't get up and down. First blemish for Scottie since the third hole yesterday.

He's a little runaway?

Are we in danger of a runaway winner in the 86th Masters from Augusta? Scottie Scheffler is certainly making it seem that way. Everyone else is going to have to step up, or hope that Scheffler cools down throughout the round.

Scheffler to -10

While Schwartzel drops a shot, Scheffler is taking full advantage of the first three holes. He left himself 70 yards after his drive on the Par 4 third, and his wedged checked just after the hole. He dropped the 8 footer to go to -10 and now has a six shot lead.

2011 champ back to -3

Schwartzel dropped a shot after a birdie on the second hole. His approach hit the front edge of the green, but a three putt drops him back to -3.

Scottie is looking locked in to start his Saturday.

Fleetwood in the house

Tommy Fleetwood is in the house at +1 after a 70 on Moving Day. At the moment he is the leader in the clubhouse, but that is sure to change quite quickly.

Tiger's iron play hasn't been great, but his short game looks as sharp as ever. He pulled out the flop shot on 7 to stay at +3.

The lead is back to five strokes

Scheffler hops on the birdie train at the second hole after a second shot that feel feet short of the front of the green. An easy chip left a four foot for birdie and Scheffler is back to five clear of the rest of the field at -9

Morikawa back to -2

Morikawa went on to bogey his next to after a birdie at 3, but made up for it with another birdie at 6.

Schwartzel joins Lowry at -4

The 2011 Master Champ has started his day off well, taking advantage of a relatively easy second hole. We have seen a lot of golfers leave their second short of the green, but Schwartzel hit the back of the green and two putted to get to -4 for the tournament.

Morikawa from the fringe for birdie on the third to move to -2.

Another birdie at #2

Shane Lowry started the the day at -3 and knows he's got his work cut out for him if he's going to catch up to Scheffler. He made no mistake of the second hole. His second was left at the front edge of the green and his chip led to a tap in to take him to -4.

Scheffler starting steady

The leader of the tournament and number ranked player in the world Scottie Scheffler (-8) just parred his first hole and is now on to the second hole which has been treating the golfers quite kindly today.

Scheffler is paired with 2011 Masters Champion Charles Schwartzel (-3) who also parred his first hole.

Scheffler starts his Saturday

The final group has teed off and everyone is officially underway on Saturday from Augusta! There is plenty to be determined before the final round tomorrow so stay with us all afternoon for up to the minute coverage of the 86th Masters from Augusta.

DJ climbs as JT falls

Justin Thomas left himself plenty of work to do with his second shot on the Par 4 fifth. He drops a shot (-2) after three putting.

Dustin Johnson however, has started his round like JT did with a birdie on number 2. After coming up just short of the green on his second he chipped to within 10 feet and is now at -3.

Chance to score early in round

Just looking at the early rounds the first few holes look like some of the most scoreable holes. There have been a lot of golfers in the early tee times with birdies on 2 and 3. Thomas, Willett and Fitzpatrick are the most recent of many who have jumped all over the first few holes.

Playing under par not coming easy on Moving Day

There are currently 16 golfers under par in this third round from Augusta. While the pin placements are put in approachable positions, the weather is making it a bit tough to move up the leader board. We will see the affect this has in the later groups.

The final three groups are about to tee off on Moving Day at the Masters

Here are the final pairings of the day

2:30 p.m. – Hideki Matsuyama, Harold Varner III
2:40 p.m. – Sungjae Im, Shane Lowry
2:50 p.m. – Scottie Scheffler, Charl Schwartzel

JT is on the comeback trail

Justin Thomas is making moves up the leaderboard after starting out with two birdies through his first three holes. He took advantage of a very accessible Par 5 second despite hitting the green front bunker on his second shot. He almost holed his sand shot and tapped in for birdie.

He was in the fairway bunker on his second shot on the next hole but put it on the dance floor and drained the 29 foot putt for back-to-back birdies.

He's at -3 for the tournament, five back of Scheffler

This is the man that everyone will be chasing today. The number one ranked golfer in the world has a five stroke lead heading into the weekend. Scottie Scheffler (-8) is scheduled to tee off at 2:50 p.m. ET.

Woods doubles the fifth

Diasater for Tiger on the Par 4 5th. He was six feet away from a par, but three putted for a double bogey. It looked like he didn't come through fully on his second shot, and left his approach on the opposite end of the green. There may have been a bit of a grimise as on the follow through of that shot. That or Tiger was just disappointed with the placement.

Will that be the hole that takes him out of contention for the 86th Masters?

Fitzpatrick birdies two of first three

Matthew Fitzpatick isn't letting the cold conditions get to him. He's wrapped up in a beanie, and has just wrapped up birdies on the second and third after starting his round with a bogey. He's currently -1 on the tournament and the only one who has teed off in red.

Tiger saves par on 4

Tiger pulled his tee shot wide of the green side bunker on the Par 3 fourth, but had a marvelous chip over the sand, and checked it to within three feet with very little space to work. He's holding on despite putting himself in some comprimising spots.

Hovland in the red

The cold conditions have not allowed to many golfers to go low on moving day. The only one who is enjoying himself at the moment is Norwegian Viktor Hovland. He is three under on the day after birides on 10, 11 and 13, but still sits at +2 for the tournament.

Hideki champ

Hideki in striking range

Defending Master Champion Hideki Matsuyama is in contention for a back-to-back Green Jackets after a second round 69 has him in a four-way tie for second.

Matsuyama, Schwartzel, Im and Lowry are all five strokes back of Scheffler (-8) and will be teeing off in the next hour.

Hideki in striking range

Defending Master Champion Hideki Matsuyama is in contention for a back-to-back Green Jackets after a second round 69 has him in a four-way tie for second.

Matsuyama, Schwartzel, Im and Lowry are all five strokes back of Scheffler (-8) and will be teeing off in the next hour.

Woods birdies #2

Tiger found the sand on his second shot on the long Par 5 second, but played the slope of the green beautifully out of the sand and birdies to bring himself back to +1 for the tournament.

Dropping a shot hurts, but a good recovery and a 4 on number two will numb the pain as he gets warmed up on a cool day in Augusta.

On a chilly day in Georgia, why not keep it low and steady like Cameron Champ on the Par 5 eighth. His second shot was disappointing and he settles for a par to remain at +2 on the tournament.

Tiger bogeys to open round

Far from a good start for Tiger who left himself a lot of work to do with his approach that landed on the far side of the green. He three putts from over 50 feet away and drops a shot to start his round.

Chilly third round awaits

The sweaters are out on a chilly, gray spring day. from Augusta. While there is no precipitation expected, it won't get above 57 degrees today.

Tiger is teed off

Tiger's third round is officially underway and he's right down the first fairway after spanking a three wood dead center.

These are a very important first few holes for Woods, who struggled in the beginning of his round yesterday.

Woods is paired with Kevin Kisner who is also at +1.

Rahm starts strong

Kim just had a bogey on four after we were singing his praises, but John Rahm and Justing Swafford had birdies to bring them to +1 on the day.

Rahm has a chance to retake the number spot in the world this weekend, but he'll have his work cut out against dethroning Scottie Scheffler who is currently five strokes clear of the rest of the field.

Woods looking to go low after 74 on Friday

Tiger looked as if he was experiencing some discomfort in his back and leg in the second round, but was still bounce back from starting his round with four bogeys in the first five holes. He’s still in the mix after a 74 put him at +2, but will need Scheffler to play a pedestrian round to really be in the hunt on Sunday.

Kim eagles to get even

Sii Wo Kim is making moves early on. He started the day at +2 and is already at even for the tournament after an Eagle of the Par 5 second.

His drive couldn't have been hand placed in a better position. He played a light draw with the fairway wood to the front of the green and drilled the 18 foot up hill putt.

GOLF

How many times has Tiger Woods won the Masters and when did he last win the green jacket?

This tournament is the first major golf championship event of the year, and is held annually at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.

This is the 24th time for Woods to join this contest.

It's his first PGA Tour competition since he was involved in a car accident in February last year which left him with severe leg injuries. As he is still recovering from his many surgeries, there is not much pressure on him to win.

But if the 46-year-old manages to pull off one of the biggest comebacks in sports history by winning the Masters only 14 months after a life-threatening crash, he would be claiming his sixth career green jacket.
