Masters 2021 live results, updates, highlights from the ranking of the third round on Saturday
If the weekend game at the Masters tournament roughly corresponds to the first two rounds, an exciting end is in store for us at Augusta National Golf Club.
Justin Rose is in control of the top of the leaderboard and goes into the third round with 7 under par. This is the same score he got after a round. Things looked bad on the second round when he carded four bogeys on the top nine, but he overcame the bad start with four birdies – three on the back nine – and even finished the round.
He stayed one shot ahead of second-placed golfers Will Zalatoris and Brian Harman, who are under 6 in two rounds. That shows how dangerous the greens can be in Masters – and how incredibly well golfers have to play to win the most famous golf major.

And the greens only get faster if the game continues into the moving day. Rose certainly doesn’t have enough head start to rest on his hips. Marc Leishman and Jordan Spieth are in third place with 5 under. Bernd Wiesberger, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Champ and Hidekyi Matsuma are in sixth place with 4 under.
It’s still everyone’s tournament. Sporting News is following live scoring updates and highlights from the 2021 Masters leaders and featured groups. Follow us for the full results of Saturday’s third round in Augusta National.

Masters live updates, highlights from the third round on Saturday
All times east
4 pm: Weather delay in Augusta. Looks like a storm is coming through.
3:12 pm: Will Zalatoris finds his first birdie of the day. Very good job from the Masters rookie.
2:56 pm: Rose doesn’t waste time too soon. He starts with two birdies to move to 2 under and 9 total for the round.
2:46 pm: Conners follows his ace with a birdie to get under 6.
2:37 pm: And there is Spieth with his own up and down birdie to get under 6:
2:33 pm: Xander Schauffele takes steps early on:
2:20 pm: Hole in one from Corey Conners on hole 6: only the sixth in the history of the Masters tournament! That put him down to 3 for the round and 5 for the tournament.
2:14 pm: Horschel gets a nice up and down from the bunker from hole 18 to Bergungspar. That keeps him at 1 in three rounds.
12:55 pm: Billy Horschel had to get his feet wet to save this ball out of the water – and he saved par at 13! It’s 2 by 13 holes. (Fortunately, his swing was a little more graceful than his dripping over the dam).
11:56 am: A bogey and a birdie on holes 7 and 8 bring Mickelson back to 2 through eight holes.
11 clock: Three holes, two birdies for Phil Mickelson. That brings him to 1.
