Rose, Garcia share Masters lead, setting up drama-filled final round

Rose, Garcia share Masters lead, setting up drama-filled final round

"This is by far the best I've felt in a major", Fowler said. I feel good about everything.

"I had José send me, obviously Seve couldn't do it, but José sent me a attractive message on Wednesday night and you know, he has a good touch when it comes down to those things".

"It's good to actually have the golf course with manageable conditions today", he said. "It feels like I'm right where I'm supposed to be". "I'm not the guy that's going to stand out there and try to hit it over the trees on 13", he said.

"I know anything can happen", Spieth said, which sparked nervous laughter in an interview room where almost everybody remembered last year's collapse.

"I had some chances on the back nine that I could have converted", admitted McIlroy.

"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.

"The swing on 16 happens, it was a bad one", Hoffman said.

"I was not comfortable in the driving range, but after a couple of holes, I picked up confidence, started to hit some good shots and putted very well", Garcia told Efe.

Trump's security adviser reaffirms plan to deploy missile defence system-Seoul
The North has defied the ban, saying it infringes its sovereign rights to self defence and the pursuit of space exploration. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed Pyongyang had launched "yet another" intermediate range ballistic missile.

Rose surged to the top of the leader board at Augusta National Golf Club Saturday with five birdies in his final seven holes, putting him in position to win a second major title to go with the Olympic gold medal he won last summer. "I've got three rounds to go". By then, he already was squarely back in the mix with a few good bounces and his frightening touch on the greens.

He was helped by a break at the par-five 13th, where his second-shot approach landed short and looked headed for a splash in Rae's Creek before coming to rest just above the hazard.

"So you really have to focus on yourself and not worry too much about what everyone else is doing". I don't hit - my fairways hit is 55 percent. Garcia, still looking for his first major championship in 73 starts, began the day in a four-way tie for the lead, and maintained his steady play on Saturday. Lee Westwood, a runner-up past year and in search of his first major title at age 43, had 68 and is five back as is Masters rookie Thomas Pieters (75).

The 2015 Masters and US Open champion fired a four-under par 68 Saturday to share fourth place with fellow Americans Ryan Moore and Charley Hoffman after 54 holes to stand on four-under 212, two back of co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. "My goal was two a side, and I did that".

"I played well early on", he said. The Farmer's Insurance Open champ is sure of that now after three days of overall strong golf.

He was asked again Saturday about any temptations he has had to turn pro, but he insists he won't. "Fortunately, Sergio said, "[the grass on] that bank seems to be a tiny bit longer this year, which is nice".

Hoffman finished the round with a 72, not quite the move he was hoping for on Moving Day. I'm not going to do it, but no, I think about it all the time.

Just like that, Hoffman's name slipped off the top line of the leaderboard - a spot he had commandeered with a brilliant 7-under 65 in treacherous winds on Thursday, giving him a four-shot cushion and biggest lead after the first round of the Masters since 1955.
