Masters 2014 - LIVE: Leaderboard, latest news and all the action from Augusta National on Day 3

Follow all the latest scores, leaders and action from the 2014 Masters from Augusta

  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: Quite a few back home then. Martin Kaymer and Hunter Mahan go in at four over. Henrick Stenson, Bernhard Langer and Louis Oosthuizen are also home and sit at plus three. 
    4/12/2014 9:28:04 PM
  • LEADERS: The leaders are having a little lull in play for now, most probably before a final onslaught. No change for a while but that won't last long! The greens are starting to look a touch silvery, even brownish dare I say it, either way, they are lightning fast!
    4/12/2014 9:30:55 PM



  • The Twittersphere just loves the Masters, straight up, no messing. 
    4/12/2014 9:32:27 PM
  • FRED COUPLES: Veteran Freddie is still going strong. Back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14 take him up to two under. 
    4/12/2014 9:33:31 PM
  • JIM FURYK: Jimmy takes six at the 15th after finding the water to drop to three under and gives Jonas Blixt sole ownership of camp four under.
    4/12/2014 9:36:19 PM
  • THE FIELD: Just a reminder we have 51 of the original 96 playing today after Bubba's tough cut got rid of a whole bunch last night. 
    4/12/2014 9:39:40 PM
  • LEADERBOARD: Big changes again! Bubba takes back control after mistakes from Kuchar and Bjorn mean they drop down. Jordan Spieth does join the four under club but Bubba now has a two shot lead again. 
    4/12/2014 9:44:03 PM
  • MATT KUCHAR: The first real mistake of his round comes right at the end. Kuch bogeys the last to finish with a round of 68, a great round nonetheless but slightly dented at the last. 
    4/12/2014 9:46:04 PM



  • You may love it, you may hate it, but Twitter is a good old laugh!
    4/12/2014 9:49:20 PM

  • Thomas Bjorn lets one go 

    Adam Scott say thanks to the Patrons  

    On the up and up for Kuch 

    4/12/2014 9:55:04 PM
  • AT THE TOP: A few mistakes creeping into the group behind Bubba but nothing of the sort from Jordan Spieth. The youngest sinks two birdies in a row to get right up behind our leader. 
    4/12/2014 9:56:37 PM
  • FRED AND JOHN: Freddie Couple and John Senden are still right there or there about at two under with only a few left to play each. Don't count either out yet. 
    4/12/2014 10:00:24 PM
  • THE GREEN JACKET: Where is it going to go and who will put on that famous piece of apparel tomorrow evening?? Bubba's looking good still but Spieth, Kuchar and Bjorn are all pushing him hard as we speak. Will it be one of these four or someone else completely? Place your bets now!
    4/12/2014 10:02:49 PM



  • The young man Spieth is a big hit on the old W.W.W.
    4/12/2014 10:04:46 PM
  • DAY THREE: We're coming to the last few holes on the third day of this year's Masters and what a great day it's been, probably the best so far, no definitely the best! What will happen to end the day???
    4/12/2014 10:07:00 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: A couple of big names at the start of the day have reached the end and are back in the showers. Kevin Stadler managed a round of 72 for a card of one under for the tournament but Wales' Jamie Donaldson didn't do so well and his 76 leaves him at plus three. 
    4/12/2014 10:12:29 PM
  • JIM FURYK: Sir Jim is back home too and a sting in the tail for his round has put a downer on what was shaping up to be something very good. Two bogeys in the last four give him a round of 72 and is two under. 
    4/12/2014 10:14:57 PM
  • JONAS BLIXT: Sweden's finest joins Spieth in second place with two quick birdies at 15 and 16, the latter being a real pearler of putt. Thomas Bjorn drops down though, with a bogey at 15. 
    4/12/2014 10:17:46 PM
  • THE 17TH: Jimmy Walker and Adam Scott have not really got going all day long and could be out of contention for the title. Both are at plus one with only the 18th to go. 
    4/12/2014 10:19:58 PM




  • Couples always turns up at Augusta!
    4/12/2014 10:23:02 PM
  • FRED COUPLES: He loves it here and the Patrons love him. Freddie's home in 73. 
    4/12/2014 10:24:02 PM
  • BUBBA WATSON: Another slip up for Bubba, this time a bogey at the 16th, and it sends the unlikely duo of Spieth and Blixt back to a joint lead with the 2012 champ. Far from vintage Watson today. 
    4/12/2014 10:27:56 PM
  • GOING DOWN: Couple of players make quick fire mistakes. Bjorn and Blixt both drop shots at the 17th. 
    4/12/2014 10:30:50 PM
  • JORDAN SPIETH: Fantastic work from the youngest! Are we seeing a future star here? After consecutive birdies on 14 and 15, Spieth gets home all safe for a round of 70 and the joint lead of five under. Dallas will be rocking tonight. 
    4/12/2014 10:34:37 PM
  • ON THE COURSE: Just four men left out there today. Watson, Blixt, Senden and Bjorn with the eyes of the golfing world upon them as they wrap up day three. 
    4/12/2014 10:37:04 PM
  • BUBBA WATSON: What's the true mark of a champion? The ability to grind out results. Bubba was so good over days one and two, by far the best, but today it just hasn't been all there. But, he is still at the top. A champion? Could well be. 
    4/12/2014 10:40:11 PM
  • BLIXT AND BJORN: The Scandinavian duo are all done for the day. 71 for Jonas and 73 for Thomas and they will certainly be up there tomorrow. Could it be a European champion? Well, not many would have picked either of these two but you never know...
    4/12/2014 10:43:38 PM
  • FINAL PAIR: Can Bubba make the lead his own again on the last? Good tee shot for him. Senden will want to end well too, stay at two under and be in touch of the leaders tomorrow. 
    4/12/2014 10:45:18 PM

  • Jonas Blixt has done very well so far 

    4/12/2014 10:50:41 PM

  • Some last pretty pictures from today 

    4/12/2014 10:50:55 PM

  • Bubba looks good but Augusta looks better

    4/12/2014 10:55:44 PM
  • ALL DONE: Bubba's there then and home with a round of 74. He still holds the lead but is now joined by Jordan Spieth at five under. John Senden bogeys the last to drop to one under with a 75. 
    4/12/2014 10:57:44 PM
  • There we go then, all done for another day at this year's Masters. Day 3 was, by a distance, the most competitive and exciting day so far with leader changes and leader board switch ups happening all the time. 

    Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth share a one shot lead at the top and are at five under for the tournament. 

    Behind our leaders, Matt Kuchar put in a super round to join Jonas Blixt in second at four under.

    Miguel Angel Jimenez put in the round of the week so far, a 66, and Rickie Fowler played well too to claim the third place spot at three under. 

    Lee Westwood has a great chance of claiming the Green Jacket being at two under and getting better and better. 

    Adam Scott (+1) and Rory McIlroy (+3) were the two main favourites coming into the 2014 Masters but would seemingly be out of it. 
    4/12/2014 11:03:59 PM
  • Many thanks from us at The Independent  and we'll see you all again tomorrow for the fourth and final day of the 2014 Masters! Where is that Green Jacket going, it'll all get sorted out tomorrow, should be an amazing day!
