  • WEATHER: It's getting windy out there, the going is going to get going! 
    4/13/2014 6:16:46 PM
  • JUSTIN ROSE: No good start for the Brit sadly and he bogeys the first. Back to level par overall for the English Rose. 
    4/13/2014 6:17:57 PM
  • RORY!: Well done Roar! He knocks in a very nice birdie at seven, where he messed up yesterday. 
    4/13/2014 6:19:01 PM
  • JOOST LUITEN: A bit of Dutch magic from Joost as he finishes up with a round of 67 for the day. Four birdies from the last five and really well played. He is joined by Scotland's Stephen Gallacher in the hutch. 
    4/13/2014 6:21:51 PM
  • FRED COUPLES: The 54-year-old has got off to a flyer here and opens with two birdies. 
    4/13/2014 6:24:27 PM
  • SAFELY AWAY: Westwood, Furyk and Bjorn all get off to a safe start with par at the first. Will it be a special day for any of them?
    4/13/2014 6:27:59 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: Brandt Snedeker (+7) and Mike Weir (+9) are both home and their Masters 2014 tournaments come to an end. 
    4/13/2014 6:30:18 PM
  • TEEING OFF: The penultimate group crack away their first drivers and we're nearly all systems are go in Augusta. 
    4/13/2014 6:32:07 PM
  • JUSTIN ROSE: Rose gets back his dropped shot at the first with a birdie at the second. 
    4/13/2014 6:33:03 PM
  • RICKIE FOWLER: Good start from the young man and he confidently birdies the first. 
    4/13/2014 6:34:22 PM



  • Looks alright to me boys!!!
    4/13/2014 6:35:36 PM
  • MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: The Spaniard gets off to a bad start and slips out of third place straight away with a bogey on the first. 
    4/13/2014 6:39:27 PM
  • RORY!: Well he isn't world number two for no reason! McIlroy's on a roll with three birdies on the bounce. You never know...
    4/13/2014 6:40:34 PM
  • THE FINAL PAIR: Quite please! Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson now driving! Ready? Here we go!!!
    4/13/2014 6:41:37 PM
  • JIM FURYK: Jimmy likes the second hole a lot and he birdies it for the third time this week and goes into third place. 
    4/13/2014 6:44:46 PM
  • THOMAS BJORN: The great Dane joins Couples and Fruyk in tied third with a three at three.
    4/13/2014 6:47:40 PM



  • 4/13/2014 6:48:44 PM


  • I did say 'you never know', sorry KG!
    4/13/2014 6:49:51 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: Some real fans' favourites are back in the shed for the day, as KJ Choi, Sandy Lyle and Francesco Molinari all turn in their final cards. 
    4/13/2014 6:51:54 PM
  • THIRD PLACE: Fowler and Jimenez go in opposite directions but end up in the same place. A bogey after a birdie for Fowler and a birdie after a bogey for Jimenez sees them both go to three under. 
    4/13/2014 6:54:42 PM
  • LEADERS: All our four top players getting going with pars. 
    4/13/2014 6:55:19 PM
  • LEE WESTWOOD: Lee makes a mistake at three and goes back to one under and a little gap appears between the top nine and the rest.
    4/13/2014 6:57:29 PM

  • It seems Adam Scott will be passing on his Green Jacket

    Rory McIlory aims at the flag 

    Kevin Stadler has been in with a shout all week long 


    4/13/2014 7:03:00 PM
  • MATT KUCHAR: We have a new joint leader and it's Kuuuuuuch. He makes his third birdie in four rounds at the second and goes into the leader's group. 
    4/13/2014 7:04:18 PM
  • MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: Up and down, up and down, up and down. Another bogey puts Jimenez back to two under. 
    4/13/2014 7:05:54 PM
  • LEE WESTWOOD: Ahhhhh, pure frustration for Lee as he slides a 3 footer just wide of the cup and has to settle for a double bogey on the fourth. Is that his chance gone?
    4/13/2014 7:07:24 PM
  • JORDAN SPIETH: Spieth hits into the drink on the 12th. Bubba does find dry land but it's not great either. Lots and lots of adrenaline running through the veins of the final pair. 
    4/13/2014 9:21:26 PM
  • READ ALL ABOUT IT: Our man Kevin Garside: Augusta is how the world might look if you were given a blank piece of paper and a set of crayons, an Arcadia of power made perfect. Read it HERE
    4/13/2014 9:23:12 PM



  • This. Man.
    4/13/2014 9:24:39 PM
  • ADAM SCOTT: We won't be having a back-to-back champion this year, as if you didn't know that already. Scott gets home in 72 and at plus one, he'll get a top 20 finish though. 
    4/13/2014 9:26:23 PM
  • BUSINESS END: We are getting to squeaky-bum time of this year's tournament! Where's that Green Jacket going?
    4/13/2014 9:27:36 PM
  • JORDAN SPIETH: One hell of an up and down from Spieth and that's a very good bogey all things considered. It extends Bubba's lead though. 
    4/13/2014 9:28:38 PM
  • BUBBA WATSON: Amazing, amazing drive. What is that pink driver made of because I want one, now! He explodes off the 13th for another great chance of a birdie. 
    4/13/2014 9:31:13 PM
  • JONAS BLIXT: He has been going along nicely all day and now he's making a move. A birdie at 13 and the Swed is right in the mix. 
    4/13/2014 9:33:38 PM
  • KEVIN STADLER: This man just won't give up. He gets a good one at 16 this time and is up and in there again. 
    4/13/2014 9:35:03 PM
  • RICKIE FOWLER: The big orange hat has a beauty at the 14th to get to two under. 

    Fowler's playing buddy, Jimenez, also does well at the 14th with a birdie of his own and jumps to three under. If you want a group to watch, that's not the leaders mind, pick this one, great stuff. 
    4/13/2014 9:37:52 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: Ian Poulter is back home and not happy again. Stunning honesty in his post round interview but his 74 today just wasn't good enough. He and, Jason Day (72 today), finish up at two over par. 
    4/13/2014 9:40:19 PM
  • LEE WESTWOOD: It might be too little, too late but Lee hits birdies at 13 and 15 so get back on the front page of the official leader board. 

    Others can look at what Lee has just done and take stock. There are shots out there to be had, the 13th and 15th will give you something.

  •  
    The Champ bows out with one last hooray

    Jonas Blixt and all the fans 

    Jordan Spieth looks at home here, he'll have a long Masters career 


    4/13/2014 10:08:50 PM
  • NOT LONG LEFT: Are we going to have any last twists or turns as we reach the end of the 2014 Masters? Bubba holds all the cards, if he can get home safely, the Jacket is surely his. 
    4/13/2014 10:10:31 PM
  • LEADERBOARD: -8 B Watson (US) after 14; -5 Blixt (Swe) 15, Spieth (US) 14; -4 Jimenez (Spa) 16, Kuchar (US) 15.

    Selected others: E McIlroy (NI) F, Westwood (Eng) 17; +1 Rose (Eng) 17, Donaldson (Wal) F, Scott (Aus) F; +2 Poulter (Eng) F; +6 Gallacher (Sco) F +9Clarke (NI) F, Lyle (Sco) F

    4/13/2014 10:10:57 PM
  • IN THE CLUBHOUSE: Thomas Bjorn has been in it in each of the days, apart from the day that mattered most, today. His round of 74 leaves him at level par, could have been oh so different.

    Justin Rose's day was yesterday and that 69. Today it's a 74 for the Englishman and leaves him a disappointing plus one. 

    The European charge is left down to Jimenez and Blixt.
