Leader Justin Rose geared up for epic Sunday at the Masters

10 April 2017

"I have an opportunity".

Augusta National may require one more day of coaxing to surrender its fertile reward. "I feel like I've played 13 well all week and got nothing out of it, and today I feel like I got a nice break".

Garcia has been inspired by a text message from fellow Spaniard and two-time Masters victor Jose Maria Olazabal on the eve of the tournament.

"I know anything can happen", Spieth said, which sparked nervous laughter in an interview room where almost everybody remembered last year's collapse. So it means a lot. I want to give myself a chance for it to be enough.

"I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I don't even know how much it would mean to be able to join both of my idols as a Masters victor", Garcia said.

"Waking up and you have a chance to win your favorite tournament that you've dreamt of winning and competing in since you were a kid, and to be able to have your fourth opportunity now".

"With it being fairly crowded, a handful of guys being within a few shots of the lead, I think it's going to be tough for someone to really run and distance themselves too much, with the possibilities of what you can do on the back nine", said Fowler, who birdied all four par 5s in a round of 71. I know what my limitations are.

One of the biggest might be Rose, who enters the fray at Augusta National with a championship pedigree and a closer's ability to come through in the big moment. "One shot lead starting the day doesn't mean much". Until he dumped two balls in the watery grave that fronts No. 12, he was almost a lock a year ago to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2001-02 to successfully defend his title. So you do have to calm yourself down, not get ahead of yourself.

Conte plays down exit talk, says future is at Chelsea
Pastorello is a friend, I know him well, but I don't like when others speak for me", Conte told British media. They could also end the season with silverware if they win the FA Cup.

Jordan Spieth is trying to win the Masters for the second time in three years. But a bogey at 11 left him five back with five holes to play. Yes, that's the same Jordan Spieth who has finished second, first and second in his three Masters to date.

Moore, the world number 38 who has registered five PGA Tour victories, enjoyed his finest hour when he beat Lee Westwood in the singles at last year's Ryder Cup to clinch victory for the United States over Europe.

But all those swirling ghosts inside Garcia's head officially died a timely death, once and for all, when his creek-bound ball on the 13th hole somehow stuck in the grassy bank on the green side of the water, allowing the 37-year-old Spaniard to get up-and-down for birdie.

There was such confidence in his voice Saturday night - the same confidence that surfaced Thursday after his disastrous quadruple bogey on the 15th that put him 10 strokes behind after just 18 holes of golf.

This is just another typical Sunday at the Masters for Spieth, who has finished second, first and second in his three starts.

"It looks something like single digits (under par) might win this tournament", Spieth said then. I feel great on the golf course.

"If I had had a better lie in the bunker on 3, the fairway bunker, I might have gone bogey-free today".

Garcia opened with a birdie, sinking a four-foot putt to move into the lead alone, and added another at the third to reach eight-under, jumping two strokes ahead of Rose, who answered a bogey at the fifth with a 10-foot birdie putt at the par-3 sixth.
