Saturday is "moving day" at the Masters, the day to position oneself to make a run at Sunday glory. Today’s action will feature several major champions near the final group, and several former Bulldogs remain, if not in the thick of things, in line for a solid finish.
Patrick Reed, former UGA golfer who transferred to Augusta State and was last seen rooting for Notre Dame against the Bulldogs in football is your leader at -9. He’ll pair with Australian Marc Leishman (-7).
Henrik Stenson (-5) and Rory McIlroy (-4) are paired together for the third round. Along with Jordan Spieth (-4) these five have opened up a lead on the field. Bubba Watson enters the day as the top ‘Dawg at -2, tied for 8th. He’ll tee off at 1:40 eastern with Justin Rose. Russell Henley sits at +1 and will get things started at 12:40.
Brian Harman, 12 shots back at +3, will tee off with Daniel Berger at 11:20, Kevin Kisner (also at +3) hits the tee box ten minutes later.
Watson may be the only ‘Dawg with a plausible shot at the green jacket. But all four Bulldog participants made the cut, and each is a single low number away from the top five.
