Masters Final Round Open Comment Thread

Ian Walton

Bubba Watson survived some shaky putting on Saturday to retain a share of the lead at -5. The guy he's sharing with is 20 year old  Jordan Spieth.

Normally one would think that a 20 year old kid playing in the final group on Sunday at Augusta would be about to utterly implode. Certainly there's a chance of that. Spieth wouldn't be the first to wilt under the heat of the spring Georgia sun. However, in his young career Spieth has already qualified for the President's Cup, and played professional rounds with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods (he beat both).

One shot back of Watson and Spieth you'll find Swede Jonas Blixt and former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Matt Kuchar. In all there are six golfers within two shots of the lead, a strong indicator of another tight finish at the Masters, where Sunday playoffs are more the rule than the exception in recent years.

Former Bulldogs Chris Kirk and Russell Henley sit seven shots back tied for 18th, and while neither is likely to win it all both are squarely in contention for a top 10 finish. Final round coverage begins this afternoon at 2 p.m. on CBS and as always is available on Masters.com.
