5 things to watch Saturday at the Masters

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The third round of the Masters begins Saturday and here are five things you should keep an eye on:

___

WILL KID KEEP FOCUS?

Guan Tianlang had to sweat it out, but the 14-year-old from China became the youngest to ever make a cut in a PGA Tour event. Will he feel rushed after getting a one-shot penalty for slow play in the second round?

___

CAN TIGER BOUNCE BACK?

Tiger Woods was tied for the lead when he hit a perfect shot to the 15th green, only to see it ricochet into the water after hitting the pin. He was three back going into the weekend.

___

THEN THERE’S FREDDIE

Fred Couples was a stroke back at the age of 53, something that surprises even him. The weekend can be a cruel place in the Masters, though, especially to the aging.

___

AUSSIE RULES

An Australian has never won the Masters, somewhat surprising because of the pedigree of Greg Norman and other players. Jason Day had the second-round lead, Marc Leishman was a stroke back, and Adam Scott was three shots behind.

DUFNERING

Jason Dufner went viral with a photo of him Dufnering, here: http://bit.ly/17wkXGG . Can he resist doing it in the Masters when he’s just three shots off the lead going into the weekend?
