Jordan Spieth leads 2016 Masters heading into final round
Jordan Spieth leads for the seventh consecutive round at the Masters after carding a one-over 73 in the third round at Augusta National. At three-under, Spieth leads Smylie Kaufman by one stroke as he attempts to repeat as Masters champion.
Kaufman shot the best score on Saturday with a three-under 69, the only score in the 60's. His round consisted of just one bogey, also the low for the day.
Langer, the 58-year-old German and Masters champ in 1985 and 1993, remains in contention after shooting a two-under 70. At one under, he is tied for third place with Hideki Matsuyama and two shots off the lead. Langer is looking to become the oldest Masters and majors champion.
"I've been saying it's going to happen sooner or later," said Langer. "We have guys like Davis Love, Vijay Singh and Fred Couples who are all long enough to win majors. I'm not in that category but I try to make up for it in others [areas] and tomorrow I'm going to give it my best. That's all I can do."
Matsuyama, winner of this year's Waste Management Phoenix Open, shot an even-par 72.
Jason Day shot a one-under 71, moving to even par over 54 holes. The 2015 PGA Championship winner is tied for fifth with Dustin Johnson and Danny Willett.
Rory McIlroy, Spieth's playing mate for the day, shot a five-over 77. He trailed Spieth by one stroke after the second round, but is now five shots behind at two-over. A Masters victory would give McIlroy the career grand slam.
Amateur Bryson DeChambeau shot a five-over 77, dropping to a tie for 23rd place and well off the lead after trailing by just four strokes Friday.
