Check out the best shots

Masters 2017: Sergio Garcia, Jordan Spieth & Ernie Els feature in shots of the day

Some stats you may (or may not) believe in...

We are nearing the end for today my friends.

Who do you think will get the job done?

I'm just scanning some stats and Rickie Fowler is the man to be on for putting at least. Just 1.46 putts per hole on average, the best in the tournament.

But if the tee takes your fancy, Sergio Garcia has hit 35 of 42 fairways, only Soren Kjeldsen (37) has more.

If you like greens in regulation, go Adam Scott - he's hit 41 of 45, only Justin Thomas (42) has hit more.

Perhaps that shows that no one golfing quality will get the job done for you, one must put a complete game together.

Check out the beauty. Picture this tomorrow with fans losing their minds at the drama.

John Michael Poole:  Really hope Sergio brings it home for Seve, but I smell a Sergioesque choke coming, hope I'm wrong.

Richard Howlett:  It feels like Christmas eve! Could be the best day of golf ever tomorrow! Come on Sergio!

Hunter sees Rose blooming...

Rose -6

@JustinRose99 is one of the longer hitters on tour with a very precise iron game. If he keeps his confidence with the putter watch out.

Spieth could trump Nicklaus

Spieth -4

'I need the round of my life'

McIlroy (level)

Rory Mcilroy

Rory McIlroy, who shot a 71 today and is six shots off the lead, speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm a little frustrated. I thought I gave myself plenty of chances on the back nine and didn't convert. It puts me a few shots behind. I need a fast start and to keep going.

"I think the course is gettable, especially with the conditions. I need to play the round of my life tomorrow to have a chance."


Garcia (-6)

Iain Carter

BBC Radio 5 live at Augusta

Garcia has been banging on the door so loudly for so long, I don't think even the coldest heart could begrudge him. I, like Jay Townsend want someone to win it and think no one is deserving, but I'd have no qualms about shouting 'ole' tomorrow afternoon if he does it.

Seve inspiration

Garcia (-6)

Clubhouse co-leader Sergio Garcia speaks to BBC Sport: "I stayed patient, waited for my time. I got a great break on 13 and managed to make birdie. It was nice to see that and put a solid round.

"When things are going well off the course everything on the course seems to line up a little bit easier. But I have to go out there tomorrow, believe in myself again, be patient and don't freak out if something goes wrong."

Seve would be 60 tomorrow, how much inspiration have you taken from him? "Hopefully he will help me a little bit. Help is always wanted and welcome. It will be nice if he helps a little bit from up there. Hopefully we can get it done and celebrate."

Sunday plod ain't too bad...

Shaun Micheel

2003 US PGA Championship winner, BBC Radio 5 live

For the most part, if youy have a solid front nine on Sunday, you will have an opportunity on the back nine. Sometimes plodding along isn't a bad thing and let the other guys drop back.

How long?

Gold 'n' Green

Andrew Cotter

BBC commentator at Augusta

If Justin Rose were to win tomorrow, he'd have an Olympic gold medal to go with a Green Jacket. He wouldn't have an inferiority complex with that combination.

John McEnerney: The signs are there that it's all going to go Pete Tong for Garcia. Guide him home Seve!  

Some of you may not have seen but tomorrow would have been the 60th birthday of the late Seve Ballesteros.

Andrew Priestley: All the big names are positioning themselves nicely for a special final round on Sunday at the Masters.

"There are too many good players in that front pack for anyone on one under or even par to get at."


Four major winners in the top 10. Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Jordan Spieth and Charl Schwatrzel. Chuck in those desperate for a first one and it's a day of drama in store...

Yep, works for me.

Garcia's time?

Jay Townsend

BBC Radio 5 live at Augusta

I'm not someone who believes in deserving to win, but he's a guy you would like to see win. Sometimes he's been his own worst enemy but he's come to terms with that and I think he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Look at the names, Rose, Fowler, Spieth, there are a tonne of guys who can win.

Garcia (-6 after 18)

Iain Carter

BBC Radio 5 live at Augusta

Brave pars for Charley Hoffman and Sergio Garcia, who remains on course to perhaps break his major duck on what would be the 60th birthday of the late Seve Ballesteros.

Final group finish!

Hoffman (-4 after 18) Garcia ( -6 after 18)

To the putts on 18, borderline crazy golf as they navigate the tier in the green.

Charley Hoffman does a decent job from range and will have four feet left to tidy.

Sergio Garcia, big swing, drifts right, leaves same distance as Hoffers. 

Here goes the American, the green bathed in sun... in all the way. He bent his knees at the last minute to will it home. Sergio... lovely stroke.. fist clench.

Zach's fun Sunday

Darn straight. Or some other Phil Mickelson term.

Hoffman (-4 after 17) Garcia (-6 after 17)

Charley Hoffman's jaw is grimacing. He's seen his ball trickle back down the green, leaving him somewhere in North Carolina when he starts this putt. Sergio Garcia follows from the fairway... too much height, not enough fizz. He's also well short and back down the green from this flag on the upper tier.

Fowler sets tone for tomorrow

Pieters (-1), Fowler (-5)

Thomas Pieters' up and down round ends on a frustrating down as his long putt comes to a halt just an inch wide of the hole. He drops a shot to finish one under.

No problem for Fowler with what ends up being his final putt of the round, which he strokes right into the middle of the hole. Only for par but it is a big putt. He will start tomorrow five under and ominously close to the lead.

C'est la Vie

Hoffman (-4 after 17) Garcia (-6 after 17)

Beautiful sounds from the contacts made by both Sergio Garcia and Charley Hoffman. Sweet, sweet music, like a B*Witched classic.

Joel Beall at Golf Digest thinks Justin Rose could be green at every appearance...

Fowler (-5)

Fowler doesn't give his massive putt at the last enough and he settles six feet short of the hole. Still something in that if he wants to make par.

Happy chappy...

Hoffman (-4 after 17) Garcia (-6 after 17)

A happy chappy in the clubhouse on six under.

Neither Sergio Garcia nor Charley Hoffman can make birdie on 17, pars only, though both went close with putts.

Fowler (-5)

Fowler's second shot to 18 takes a small kick from the right-front edge of the green. A bit of a miscue and it gives him a monster for a birdie. All about making sure he can get par now and ensure only one shot separates him and the lead.

Ryder Cup Sunday at Augusta?

Andrew Cotter

BBC commentator at Augusta

There is a hint of the Ryder Cup about the leaderboard. with Rose and Garcia at the top and Fowler and Spieth underneath.

Moore (-4)

Ryan Moore finishes with a par after missing his 18-footer by an inch or two. 54 holes down, four under, two off the lead, the American goes again tomorrow.

Pieters (-2)

Thomas Pieters has not had it all his own way today. He birdies the 17th, though, to move back to two under and into the top 10. The Belgian Ryder Cup player in the mix.

Straight down the middle

Fowler (-5)

Fowler's drive at the last is good. Right up the middle. 

The American looks calm and collected. Once Moore and McGirt finish their rounds off, he will be looking to play a second shot with a share of the clubhouse lead in mind.

Scott wants 'crazy' Sunday

Scott (-3 after 18)

2013 Masters champion Adam Scott was happy with the lack of wind today.

He told BBC Sport: "I hate to say it was easy compared to the first two days but it felt that way, not having to worry about the wind.

"I played solid and made a few birdies but i didn't finish it off the way I wanted. but hopefully i can sneak up on them tomorrow."

When asked if being a previous winner would help, he replied: "It counts for a little bit. I know I can do it when you've got to stand up and hit a shot. 

"We've seen so many crazy things happen here on a Sunday, hopefully it will be crazy for me."

Hoffman (-4) Garcia (-6)

I love the crowd contribution.

"That's a rip Charley", says one man with authority as Hoffman slams one up 17.

A rip indeed. I believe it's 307 yards to Sergio Garcia's 304.

I know what can happen on a Sunday - Spieth

Spieth (-4)

2015 champion Jordan Spieth, speaking to BBC Sport after his four-under-par 68:  "We wanted to shoot four under today and thought if we did the lead would move to six or seven and I'd creep on it.

"I thought the golf course would be difficult today but it was nice to get out to five under and hit our goal in the end.

"In order to win this tournament you have to play to win. At other places you can back off a bit and cruise, here if you have got a chance to go for it you have to pull off the shot.

"Those are the moments that people who win this tournament have when they play on the Sunday. Moments present themselves - it is about being patient.

"I know better than anyone what can happen on a Sunday."

One more for Moore?

Ryan Moore could yet make it to five under. He has 18ft left on the green for birdie at the last...

Double bogey

Hoffman (-4 after 16) Garcia (-6 after 16)

Hoffman finds the drink on 16

Sergio Garcia is just a few feet off the green but he's taken the hybrid out to bump this bad boy close...expertly done. That should save his par. Charley Hoffman meanwhile..

He's melted a little here. A five footer for double bogey remains. He puts his marker down, then sets the ball. Two practice strokes... has to go in... does go in. Double trouble bogey.

Fowler (-5)

Fowler holes out from five feet. He stays five under.

Fowler (-5)

Fowler with a monster putt from just off the green for birdie at 17. He leaves it short, uncomfortably short. Still some work to do to save par.
