"The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount", club chairman Fred Ridley said in a statement. Finau now leads the tournament at 9-under and Simpson, Xander Schauffele, Adam Scott and Brooks Koepka are one shot back.

Koepka also took down Woods, at the US PGA last August when they conducted their epic duel on the final day.

While other players were taking advantage of benign conditions, with soft greens allowing them to fire fearlessly at the pin, Woods's round seemed to be passing him by.

It has been chose to use both the first and tenth tees, with players playing in groups of three as distinct from the traditional two.

You watched Woods take a temporary share of the 11-under lead with Molinari and Tony Finau, who grew up idolizing Woods.

The world No.7 hit a hot streak previous year and held off a resurgent Woods in the 2018 Open at Carnoustie to clinch his maiden major title.

I've picked out a twoball featuring Woods who played sensationally yesterday but missed a few short putts that would otherwise have catapulted him to the top of the leaderboard on his own. "Plenty of room for a green jacket, I know that", Finau said with a smile. The 29-year-old American became the third player to shoot an 8-under 64 in the third round of the Masters. "I've been in the mix with a chance to win major championships in the last two years, and so that helps". It might be nothing, however, compared to the mental agonies he'll need to overcome today if he is to end a three year victory drought and claim his first major. In 2006, the Masters started play at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday but that was in order to finish the third round.

Proceeds of this album will go towards the Tim Bergling Foundation , which vows to help those suffering from mental illnesses. According to the latest press release, the Swedish musician had a new album on the verge of completion days before his death.

That spotlight will get even brighter if he wins the Masters, setting up a shot at the Career Grand Slam come July in the British Open at Royal Portrush.

Still, Woods' 68 to add to an opening 70 for six under puts him exactly where he wants to be - in contention in majors again after coming through the "dark times" of long-term back injuries.

"I'm pretty comfortable being up there on the leaderboard in a major come Sunday", Koepka said.

No one figures to be as excited as Finau, who turned his ankle celebrating a hole-in-one in the par 3 contest past year.

Two more birdies at par fives, the 13th and 15th, gave him his memorable score.

Maybe that's thinking a little too far ahead for a guy three shots back with 18 holes to play. There's never been multiple 64s before in the same Masters - and here there were three on the same afternoon.

Given the quality names at the top, expect more low scoring in the calm before the storm on a day that will assuredly be compelling and perhaps prove one for the ages.
