The Masters: 3rd Round



Hello folks! Welcome to our coverage of the third round of The Masters. I'm Howard Crossland, your host for the next two hours. Let's see how many of these we can tick off in that time, from the good folks over at Scratch on Facebook - go check them out (new tab though, otherwise I'd miss you).

Coverage can be a little scarce until around 8pm, but never fear, I have contacts. Woods/Poulter and Hatton/Mickelson are our featured groups early on, interwoven with Amen Corner plus those on 15 & 16. So grab a beer and settle in for moving day.

Tiger at 12 with a great tee shot which lands just a few feet away. He's on +4 at the moment. Poulter up now on +7, and he goes just off the back.

Poulter bumps it up nicely and has around six feet for par. Here's Tiggs... right to left, curls away faster than he thought and just a par for him. -1 for his round.

Par for Poults too, who is +2 today.

Tiger's drive at 13 veers right and clunks into a tree. Unfortunately not a chestnut one.

Poulter finds the fairway with his drive at 13. Best score out on the course is -2, Jason Day the most notable on even par overall.

The leaders are out at 19.30 BST. Patrick Reed is currently studying the traits of the greatest villains of all time, so he can be ready to rile everyone up later.

Woods with a miraculous escape from the pine straw at 13, gets it to just left of the green and somehow finds a smidgen of grass amongst the creek.

Poults, same hole, is nicely on in two. Woods' approach rolls off the back.
