Tiger 2 shots off Masters lead after 3rd-round 67

Tiger Woods has his left ankle clipped after a Masters security guard lost his footing on wet grass at Augusta National

A second-round 68 put Woods at 6 under par overall, just one shot back from five players - all past major champions - who are tied for the lead, including Brooks Koepka and Jason Day.

Molinari, the first Italian to win a major with his victory at last year's British Open, will start in pole position to claim a Green Jacket to go along with his Claret Jug.

After bogeying the fifth hole for the third straight day, Woods reeled off birdies at the 6th, 7th and 8th holes, and added three more on the second nine as he moved into a tie for second.

The 43-year-old Woods hasn't won the green jacket since 2005, and he's been seeking his 15th major title since winning the 2008 U.S. Open.

After an ordinary outward nine featuring three birdies offset by a pair of bogeys, Woods embarked on one of his trademark charges, carding three birdies after the turn to shoot up the leaderboard.

The 22-year-old Wise, in his second season on the PGA tour, got off to a solid start birdies on the par-5 second hole and the par-4 seventh.

"History always tells us the guys that play the par 5s well are the ones that go on to win the tournament and that go on to be in contention", Finau said.

Aubameyang: Racist abuse is 'painful'
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang says racism "is not good for football in England" and admits suffering abuse is "really painful". " I think that the second half was completely different ", Ancelotti said .

However, a poor short game cost the former world number one any chance of challenging the leaders, with neither he nor Day managing to break par. All that's left is to find out when Woods and your favorite golfers are playing so you can follow them throughout the day, both on CBS Sports and streaming on Masters Live. He hit the 2-iron instead, and the gamble paid off when the ball ended up 5 feet from the pin.

"I'm just thankful to be able to come back here and play again".

This probably is where the refined membership of Augusta National Golf Club wants to stop. Woods held the Sunday lead at last year's Open Championship before Molinari beat him head-to-head.

Francesco Molinari blocked out the buzz on a delirious day of nine players sharing space atop the leaderboard Saturday. He was particularly happy to finish, especially after storms moved into the area and stopped play right after his tee shot into 5 feet on the unsafe par-3 12th. Until now, Finau was best known at Augusta for dislocating his ankle a year ago while celebrating an ace in the par-3 tournament that precedes the Masters.

Play will begin at 9:30pm (AEST) with the leaders to tee off at 11:20pm (AEST). "So just need to go out there and hopefully they can see something on the board where it'll make them a little nervous". He will certainly feel the pressure, he said, because he cares deeply about his legacy and his craft.

The early holes on Saturday offered little inkling of the fireworks ahead as Woods got off to a pedestrian start.
