Masters social round-up: Lurking Spieth excites as he chases Rose, Garcia

Jordan Spieth is well-placed heading into the final round of the Masters, while Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia hold the lead.

Rose and Garcia will carry a one-shot advantage into Sunday, but Spieth - and others - are lurking.

The 2015 champion is two shots back, tied for fourth with Ryan Moore and Charley Hoffman - and behind Rickie Fowler - to set up what is sure to be a thrilling finish.

Here's our round-up of day three via social media.


Thomas Pieters was having a whale of a time preparing for his third round...

It was raining birdies for Jason Day between 12 and 15, with shots like this it was easy to see why.

As the big boys came out to play, Spieth bared his teeth.

And three birdies in the space of four holes suddenly had the two-time major winner within two of the lead.

Hoffman moved clear at six under, but a bogey on the sixth gave Garcia - a perennial nearly man in majors - the chance to reclaim a share of the lead.

Spieth continued to loom large on the leaderboard following stunning par saves at 10 and 12.

However, it was Hoffman who surprisingly remained clear at the summit.

A splendid 68 left Spieth two off the pace as he headed for the clubhouse.

Hoffman faltered, a bogey at the 14th followed by a double at the 16th as he slipped from the lead.

But Rose and Garcia finished well to share the lead at round's end, ahead of a thrilling finale.
