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.
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.
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?
