If weekend play at the Masters Tournament is anything like the first two rounds, then an exciting finale awaits us at Augusta National Golf Club.
Justin Rose is in control at the top of the leaderboard heading into Round 3-7 under par, the same score he scored after one round. Things looked dire in the second round when he loaded four bogeys in the first nine, but he overcame the bad start with four birdies, three in the last nine, to finish even in the round.
He stayed one shot ahead of second-place golfers Will Zalatoris and Brian Harman, who are 6-under in two rounds. That shows how dangerous greens can be at the Masters, and how incredibly well golfers will need to play to win the most storied golf race.
And the greens will only get faster as play continues on move-in day. Rose certainly doesn’t have a big enough advantage to rest on her haunches. Marc Leishman and Jordan Spieth are tied for third at 5 under par; Bernd Wiesberger, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Champ and Hidekyi Matsuma are tied for sixth at 4 under par.
It is still just anyone’s tournament. Sporting News is tracking live score updates and highlights from the 2021 Masters leaders and featured groups. Follow for the full results of Saturday’s Round 3 at Augusta National.
