3 Epic Shots During Round 3 Of The Masters

On a near perfect day at Augusta National Golf Club, Justin Rose fired a 5-under-par 67, and co-leads the Masters with Sergio Garcia after three rounds at 6-under. One back from the lead, at -5, is Rickie Fowler, who carded a 1-under 71 on Saturday.

 
Rounding out the top-5 is a trio headlined by two-time major champion Jordan Spieth, who posted the second best round of the day, a 4-under 68. He is tied with Ryder Cup teammate Ryan Moore and first round leader Charley Hoffman at -4.
 
To wrap up coverage of Saturday’s round at The Masters, here are the 3 best shots on Saturday at Augusta National Golf Club.


Spieth’s Long Bomb Putt

Jordan Spieth entered the 6th hole at even-par for the day (five straight pars), and even-par for the tournament.

But after making a 44-foot long bomb putt for birdie, Spieth dropped into the red for the first time since being at -1 through 13 holes in round one.


Chappell’s Hole-Out Fairway Eagle

Kevin Chappell is known for his solid iron play and it showed on the Par-4 7th hole on Saturday.

Chappell hit his approach from 131 yards with some serious spin. The ball landed about 10 feet past the pin, spun back quick, hit the pin and dropped for an eagle-2. It was the first hole-out eagle at No. 7 since 2012. Chappell finished at 2-under for the day and moved into a tie for 17th.


Berger’s 261-Yard Iron Shot

Daniel Berger was 2-over on the day, and 2-over for the tournament when he arrived at the par-5 8th. But after a pure second shot from 261 yards, which resulted in a six footer for eagle, Berger moved to even-par.

Berger shot a third-round 72, and sits at even-par through 54 holes, good for T36 – six shots back of co-leaders Rose and Garcia.
