2024 Masters third round live updates: DeChambeau, Homa, Scheffler share lead as Tiger Woods makes record cut

[ad_1]

It’s Moving Day at Augusta National, and we’ve got a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard.

Max Homa, Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau enter play on Saturday at the Masters with a share of the lead at 6-under on the week. That gives them a two-shot lead over the rest of the field. DeChambeau, who moved a massive sign during his second round, bogeyed the 18th on Friday to drop into the group at the top.

Nicolai Højgaard is behind them at 4-under to start the day, and both Cam Davis and Collin Morikawa are at 3-under.

Tiger Woods is a ways back, but he’s playing into the weekend. Woods made the cut for a record 24th straight time at the Masters on Friday, which broke a tie with Gary Player and Fred Couples. He’s at 1-over on the week.

  • The 4th hole just got Tiger Woods again. He landed his tee shot just short of the green, and then left his par putt right of the hole.

    That’s the third straight day Tiger’s made a bogey at the 4th. He’s at 2-over now.

  • Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler — the first group out on the course today — just finished their rounds. Both posted a 1-under 71.

    Very solid rounds, but both are still well out of it.

  • Tiger had a good look at birdie on the par-5 second but burned the edge. He immediately hunched over after missing the 16-footer, knowing he’d missed an opportunity. He’s still at 1-over for the tournament.

  • Wind is starting to pick up a little bit here at Augusta. That and the lightning-fast greens — wind tends to dry them out — are keeping things in check. There are birdies to be had — Luke List is 4-under on his round through 14 — but the guess here is no one is going really low today.

  • Phil Mickelson … yeah, he just four-putted on the third. That led to a triple bogey. Other than that, he’s even par on his round. He’s at +7.

  • Let’s take a look at the prize payouts for the Masters, where $20 million total is up for grabs:

    1st $ 3,600,000

    2nd $ 2,160,000

    3rd $ 1,360,000

    4th $ 960,000

    5th $ 800,000

    6th $ 720,000

    7th $ 670,000

    8th $ 620,000

    9th $ 580,000

    10th $ 540,000

    50th $ 50,400

  • A few more good reads:

    Ross Dellenger wrote on Tiger, who’s in it to win it.

    Dan Wetzel chimed in on Vijay Singh’s suggestion that iconic No. 12 be lengthened. (Spoiler: Everyone but Vijay thinks this would be blasphemy.)

  • If you’re looking for an interesting read, check out Jay Busbee’s story on Bryson DeChambeau who, if you haven’t heard, is playing with 3-D printed irons. Seriously.

  • Rory McIlroy, not quite off and running, bogeys the first. At +5, he’s headed for his 35th straight major without a victory, a streak that dates back to the 2015 Masters.

  • If the early groups are an indication, there are some low scores to be had today. Six players are already under par this morning, including Luke List who is 3-under on his first two holes.

  • A beautiful day at Augusta

    It’s a beautiful day in a Augusta. Temperatures are a bit brisk now, but will warm up throughout the day, with an expected high of 77. The big news is that the wind that tore through Augusta National on Friday has subsided.

    Just eight players were under par Friday. Expect that number to be bigger today.

    Per BetMGM, Scottie Scheffler remains the favorite at +140. The other co-leaders are Bryson DeChambeau (+450) and Max Homa (+500).

    And if you’re wondering, Tiger Woods is at +10000.
