AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) This is becoming routine. For the second year in a row, Jordan Spieth will be playing in the final group at the Masters on Sunday. Only now, it will be a big surprise if he doesn't leave with a green jacket. Spieth has already set Augusta National scoring records for 36 and 54 holes.

'Hot finish' in Round 3 pulls Rose within striking distance at Masters

  Justin Rose entered the third round of the 79th Masters seemingly as a bit player, but when he tapped in on the 18th hole Saturday, the Englishman had become one of the main characters in what is now a four-man epic. Rose, who shot 5-under 67 for a 204 total, Phil Mickelson (67–205) and Charley Hoffman (71–206) are the only players realistically within striking distance of...

After stormy night, sun comes out at Augusta National

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) 12:30 p.m. After a stormy night, the sun broke through Saturday at Augusta National. Steve Stricker was the first to tee off in the third round.

Tiger's not going to win Masters, but for once he wasn't a total wreck

I can't remember being so excited to watch a golf tournament as I was this week going into the Masters. Not just because it's the Masters or because of the chance for Rory McIlroy to complete the career grand slam. No, I wanted to watch for the same reasons you want to see a crash at a NASCAR race. I wanted to see the return of Tiger Woods. And I wanted to see if he'd fall apart...

Charley Hoffman might be the only guy who can catch Jordan Spieth

You know Saturday. It is a time for fun hobbies and chillin' and beaches and a night out and whatever weekend pleasure and, if you must, honey-do lists. Chores aside, it's hard not to like Saturday. Charley Hoffman, though, hasn't embraced Saturdays -- the last two anyway. As the closest pursuer to five-stroke leader Jordan Spieth, the 38-year-old from San Diego hopes to change that...

No more hair, but a shot at a green jacket for Hoffman

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) His hair once defined Charley Hoffman, long blonde locks of it spilling out from beneath his golf hat. The hair is gone, but if Hoffman gets a break or two this weekend he could be known for something else: Being a Masters champion. Hoffman added a 4-under 68 Friday to an opening 67 to post a score that would be leading most Masters. Unfortunately for Hoffman,...

Ex-Longhorn Jordan Spieth sets lowest 36-hole score in Masters history

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Jordan Spieth stepped up for one last putt, nothing more than a tap-in really. Suddenly, he backed away. This one was important. It meant history.

Tom Watson calls first-round 71 at Masters 'minor miracle'

Tom Watson showed Thursday how important experience can be at Augusta National. Watson posted his first Masters round in the red since 2010, a 1-under 71.
