This is it. This reminds me of the BBC music you get.

:00:11.:00:52.

What a way to finish. There it is! Can you believe it?

:00:53.:01:09.

A victory for the ages. In your life have you ever seen anything like

:01:10.:01:24.

that? At long last! Bubba Watson is wearing the green jacket. A life

:01:25.:01:29.

changer. One of the epic performances. Danny Willett is the

:01:30.:01:33.

Masters champion. Joy unbounded. Good evening from Augusta National

:01:34.:01:49.

in Georgia, we waited 20 years for another British winner of the green

:01:50.:01:52.

jacket at the Masters tournament, and last year Danny Willett at

:01:53.:01:55.

Bligh, he slipped on the coveted jacket. The trend and taste for the

:01:56.:02:00.

spokes tailoring continues amongst his fellow countrymen, because

:02:01.:02:04.

Justin Rose 's co-leader into this final round, he shares the lead with

:02:05.:02:09.

the much loved Spaniard Sergio Garcia. For so long golf's nearly

:02:10.:02:16.

man. There are no guarantees on Masters Sunday, anything can happen,

:02:17.:02:21.

and it usually does. Who is in it to win it tonight?

:02:22.:03:37.

This was the picture heading into the final 18 holes. Justin Rose

:03:38.:03:44.

aiming to add to his major collection, Sergio Garcia aiming to

:03:45.:03:49.

start his. Rickie Fowler has performed better than anyone here

:03:50.:03:57.

this week on the greens. Looking at 4-under, Jordan Spieth, the Masters

:03:58.:04:02.

machine. He has either finished first or second every time he has

:04:03.:04:05.

come here, this is the first time he has had to chase the lead on the

:04:06.:04:12.

final day. 16 players are within six shots, including Adam Scott and

:04:13.:04:14.

Charl Schwartzel, both former winners.

:04:15.:04:22.

The players on even with half to have the round of their lives today.

:04:23.:04:31.

We are five hours behind you. If you would like to head straight out to

:04:32.:04:35.

the course, there are options to see action around on the red button or

:04:36.:04:43.

via the website. Full coverage from our American host begins in half an

:04:44.:04:49.

hour, just after 7pm. But this is shaping up as a classic Masters

:04:50.:04:55.

Sunday. On the scale of one to ten, how excited are you? It has got to

:04:56.:05:02.

be a temp, it has been set up, the conditions are perfect, a bit of a

:05:03.:05:06.

breeze, it is all there of a Sunday. How do you like the leaderboard? It

:05:07.:05:13.

looks like a Ryder Cup. I imagine Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose

:05:14.:05:15.

against Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. It is about who wanted the

:05:16.:05:20.

most. Controlling the controllable is. There is nobody that is afraid

:05:21.:05:25.

of anybody else, everybody knows everybody quite well. It is like a

:05:26.:05:31.

pack of lions almost. They all get along until the food shows up, then

:05:32.:05:38.

it is a fight. Somebody will end up feeling it at some point, their body

:05:39.:05:44.

will relax and they will feel it. Nerves will not be a big factor

:05:45.:05:47.

until the end of the day, because they are so comfortable with each

:05:48.:05:58.

other. They will be playing against themselves to begin with, then they

:05:59.:06:02.

play against the course. The holes are cut in places on the second

:06:03.:06:06.

nine, you can see balls feeding in, and it should be exciting. Let the

:06:07.:06:12.

fireworks begin. It is a fantastic second shot day. The course is set

:06:13.:06:18.

up with the usual Sunday pin positions, but set up to receive

:06:19.:06:22.

something like a 66. Somebody can Go Local today. The early holes are

:06:23.:06:30.

still quite tricky. The back nine is really set up, because it's perfect.

:06:31.:06:35.

Still a bit of yield from the rain, they will be altogether the ball

:06:36.:06:41.

just right. There will be bogeys -- birdies and eagles. They will be

:06:42.:06:47.

making lifeline -- life changing decisions. You have set it up to

:06:48.:06:57.

deflate! -- beautifully! Was they get going, the nerves will go away,

:06:58.:07:01.

and we will see some great golf. This is the first time at Augusta

:07:02.:07:05.

that to Europeans have made up the final pairing. Justin Rose and

:07:06.:07:11.

Sergio Garcia will be going out at 7:45pm your time.

:07:12.:07:23.

Rory McIlroy paired again with Matt Kuchar. Paul Casey hopes to fly

:07:24.:07:30.

under the radar en route to at least a third top-10 finish in a row at

:07:31.:07:32.

Augusta. Two former champions, Adam Scott and

:07:33.:07:46.

Charl Schwartzel, they have quietly crept into contention. Ryan Moore

:07:47.:07:55.

and Charley Hoffman made all the running in the first two days. Great

:07:56.:08:02.

friends, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. If they get on a roll, watch

:08:03.:08:08.

out. The first all European final pairing in Masters history. The

:08:09.:08:17.

Ryder Cup team-mate. We have got a spectacular Sunday for weather.

:08:18.:08:23.

Hardly a puff of wind, the war Mr Bridges of the week, touching 80

:08:24.:08:27.

degrees, it could be a breathtaking day, in so many respects. Our

:08:28.:08:34.

colleague James pointed out that green and gold are usually the

:08:35.:08:39.

colour combinations reserved for Australian sportsmen, but it could

:08:40.:08:42.

be that for Justin Rose today, a green jacket to go with his

:08:43.:08:48.

gold-medal from the Olympics? Some talents burned so brightly,

:08:49.:08:52.

there is no way to hide them. Raking 70 at 11, a handicap of plus three

:08:53.:08:59.

at 14. Stepping into the fears spotlight on the biggest stage of

:09:00.:09:00.

all, Birkdale, the open. Get in, they cry. And they were

:09:01.:09:06.

right! Every inch a teenager, but the

:09:07.:09:19.

smiling one next door. The name made for headlines. Great things were not

:09:20.:09:26.

too far away. No journeys are smooth, nobody that perfect. Real

:09:27.:09:33.

life arrived like jolting awake, 21 missed cuts in a row, all done in

:09:34.:09:39.

that very public glare. The cries about overhyped, the questions and

:09:40.:09:43.

the sense of turning pro so quickly. But the work continued and

:09:44.:09:47.

improvements followed, small steps, then victories and titles. There was

:09:48.:09:53.

still upset and unhappiness, these were victories for an ailing father,

:09:54.:09:57.

a man who had been a friend and early code and guide, and who was

:09:58.:10:06.

gone too soon. So to Augusta. Love from early sightings, though not

:10:07.:10:09.

immediately requested. He led after the opening two rounds in 2004

:10:10.:10:15.

before faltering. It was still all part of the growing, more experience

:10:16.:10:19.

had been filed away. The passing years brought a family of his own,

:10:20.:10:23.

life changing off because, on it he continued to improve. But the time

:10:24.:10:28.

of the US Open in 2013 he was different, a better player. He took

:10:29.:10:37.

his first major. Justin Rose has won the US Open, the first English

:10:38.:10:43.

winner in 43 years. South African born, now living in America, but

:10:44.:10:47.

there has never been doubt about where Frome is and for whom he

:10:48.:10:51.

plays. Justin Rose has got it! That was something special. Four times at

:10:52.:10:58.

the heart of Europe's Ryder Cup team, a key role in the miracle of a

:10:59.:11:04.

diner. What a finish. He takes out Phil Mickelson. Incredible. Nobody

:11:05.:11:10.

seemed to enjoy the Olympic experience more than him. On the

:11:11.:11:16.

cause, unbeatable, a golfing gold medallist. It is gold. Justin Rose

:11:17.:11:26.

of Great Britain takes Olympic gold. But there remains something

:11:27.:11:32.

unfinished at Augusta. He has been runner-up, one of those left

:11:33.:11:35.

trailing by Jordan Spieth two years ago. He is the dream of headline

:11:36.:11:41.

writers, a rose among the azaleas and Dogwood. He stands so close,

:11:42.:11:46.

playing golf with the precision he always has, showing the talent we

:11:47.:11:50.

could always see, and the early hype seems a lifetime ago. Oh, yes. Just

:11:51.:12:04.

like that. But as everybody knows, it can take a long time to become a

:12:05.:12:11.

master. Justin walks onto the practice

:12:12.:12:14.

ground ahead of his tee time at a few moments ago. He understands the

:12:15.:12:18.

significance of cementing his legacy as a multiple major winner, and this

:12:19.:12:23.

is the first time he has led or co-lead going into the last round of

:12:24.:12:28.

any major. He is a great strategist, you admire his thinking? At this

:12:29.:12:38.

point, feel transport. I can remember what I felt at every

:12:39.:12:44.

tournament, sorry, what I thought at every tournament, but I cannot

:12:45.:12:49.

remember what I felt. You have to manage your nerves, you have to

:12:50.:12:54.

manage your yardage book and your strategy and philosophy. But in the

:12:55.:13:00.

end, it is about who has the best touch on the greens. And who is the

:13:01.:13:07.

most in control of their nerve. You can help yourself along by

:13:08.:13:10.

controlling your breathing, being conscious of your walking pace.

:13:11.:13:15.

Concentration is a beautiful thing to watch, but it is a learned

:13:16.:13:18.

behaviour. One of the guys on the top of learned it the best. It is on

:13:19.:13:23.

the greens that there have been some interesting notes where Justin is

:13:24.:13:29.

concerned. He has been planning since the start of the year.

:13:30.:13:33.

He has been working on his grip, he has used the claw grip, which is

:13:34.:13:39.

where the right-hander sits at an odd angle. Notably done by Chris

:13:40.:13:45.

DiMarco. He has brought a heavier putter. They plan for coming here in

:13:46.:13:51.

April, a work on their game to get it just right, and this is the key

:13:52.:13:57.

to their success. Also the fact that Danny Willett won last year, another

:13:58.:14:03.

Englishman, in your mind you say, I am better than Danny Willett. But

:14:04.:14:09.

this is the key. He has a beautiful iron and driving game, he needs to

:14:10.:14:13.

make some putts. He has won a major Championship, it would not surprise

:14:14.:14:17.

me if he wins are. If yesterday was a dress rehearsal for the back nine,

:14:18.:14:25.

what they rehearsal it was. He was 5-under for the last seven holes, if

:14:26.:14:30.

he does that again, he will be the champion, and it will be interesting

:14:31.:14:33.

to see if he can win and join this list. Sandy Lyle kick-started a

:14:34.:14:38.

bread run. Will the floodgates open again, as

:14:39.:14:58.

they did in the late 80s? On this date, in 1989, Nick Faldo won the

:14:59.:15:06.

first of his three green jacket. It could be a sign. There are so many

:15:07.:15:11.

possibilities. Ken has been looking at the leaderboard.

:15:12.:15:21.

A sunny day on Masters Sunday does not get much better than this. I am

:15:22.:15:27.

by the pond on the 11th, which guards the left edge of the green.

:15:28.:15:33.

It is where the big leaderboard is. It is not easy to open up. At the

:15:34.:15:42.

top of the leaderboard at the moment is Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia,

:15:43.:15:45.

but who will be there later when they march through? We saw say. A

:15:46.:15:53.

great view. We needed a cherry picker to get him

:15:54.:15:56.

back down again! A lovely view. We will discuss Sergio Garcia. Unlike

:15:57.:16:03.

Justin Rose, he knows exactly what the feeling is like to lead going

:16:04.:16:07.

into the last day, he did so at the Open Championship in 2007, and he

:16:08.:16:12.

lost in a play-off to Padraig Harrington. Many of you will

:16:13.:16:18.

remember. He has had four runners-up spots in Majors, this could finally

:16:19.:16:19.

be his turn. It was not easy, but I played hard,

:16:20.:16:38.

I thought as much as I could with what I had. I stayed patient. I

:16:39.:16:45.

waited for my time to make a couple of good things. I got a great break

:16:46.:16:49.

on 13. When things are going well,

:16:50.:17:08.

everything seems to line up easier. There is nothing wrong with that. It

:17:09.:17:16.

does not mean it will be easy. I have to believe in myself again and

:17:17.:17:22.

be patient. Do not freak out even if things go wrong. Seve Ballesteros's

:17:23.:17:27.

50th birthday, how much inspiration are you drawing from him? Hopefully

:17:28.:17:34.

it'll help me. Help is always wanted and welcome. It will be nice if he

:17:35.:17:41.

helps from up there. Hopefully we can get it done and celebrate.

:17:42.:17:47.

It would have been his 60th birthday today, he passed away in 2011. There

:17:48.:17:55.

is Sergio Garcia, walking onto the practice ground ahead of his

:17:56.:18:03.

tea-time. Yesterday there was a shot which I described as his Freddie

:18:04.:18:11.

couples moment. 25 years ago, he left the ball at the 12th, hanging

:18:12.:18:15.

on the bank, and one hole later, he did the same thing.

:18:16.:18:20.

It was a beauty. I went to the 13th, the bank on the left, the grass is

:18:21.:18:28.

long. It looked as if it went into the water. But it smacked on the

:18:29.:18:35.

bank, which was a huge break. Your momentum would go if it goes in the

:18:36.:18:42.

water. Then this delightful chip. He made it look so easy. It was hard,

:18:43.:18:51.

because of the amount of upslope. A key moment. You are good

:18:52.:18:58.

strategists, great psychologists. I wonder how USS Sergio Garcia's

:18:59.:19:04.

approach on these key days and key moment. He has got to wanted the

:19:05.:19:10.

most. He has got to wanted the most, be the most determined. When Charley

:19:11.:19:15.

Hoffman headed in the water yesterday on 16, he could go either

:19:16.:19:19.

way. He could lose his confidence or he could be more determined. When

:19:20.:19:25.

Jack missed it, it made him more determined. Sergio Garcia must be

:19:26.:19:31.

the most determined. He has the most demons and the biggest cross to

:19:32.:19:34.

bear. I feel like it is a mental battle for him. For him, it is the

:19:35.:19:39.

mental side. 2012 he had a bad round. He said, I can't get around

:19:40.:19:46.

Augusta. He has had a few close finishes. It is going out there and

:19:47.:19:51.

being in control of his mental game. He looks a lot calmer. He looks to

:19:52.:19:57.

be within himself. 37 years old, perhaps the maturity is kicking in.

:19:58.:20:04.

Many would love to see him win. He has already won here at Augusta, in

:20:05.:20:09.

the year that Jose-Maria Olazabal won the second of his jackets, 1999.

:20:10.:20:15.

Rossi claimed the silver cup, as the leading amateur. Jose-Maria sent him

:20:16.:20:20.

a note of inspiration on the eve of this year's masters. Hoping he could

:20:21.:20:27.

do it. Very nice. There would be no more appropriate winner on what

:20:28.:20:34.

would have been Seve Ballesteros's 60th birthday than Sergio Garcia. It

:20:35.:20:38.

was here in 1980 that he had a massive breakthrough for European

:20:39.:20:42.

golf, becoming the first European to win the green jacket. He did it

:20:43.:20:47.

again three years ago, -- three years later, but a whole generation

:20:48.:20:49.

grew up wanting to play like him. To become the first European to win

:20:50.:20:56.

the Masters for special. Today his son tweeted, he said,

:20:57.:21:36.

happy birthday, dad, happy 60th birthday. I am sure you go wishing

:21:37.:21:46.

for Sergio today. It can not be easy, being Sergio and having to

:21:47.:21:48.

follow in the wake of these wonderful champions. A large weight

:21:49.:21:57.

to carry around. It is. When Sergio came through in 1999, he nearly won

:21:58.:22:03.

his second or third major Championship, we thought it would be

:22:04.:22:06.

inevitable that he would win four or five, says he has had the pressure

:22:07.:22:10.

all of that time. He has a chance today to put a tick in a box.

:22:11.:22:15.

Anniversaries aplenty today. It was 20 years ago that Tiger Woods won a

:22:16.:22:19.

landmark treachery for himself and for golf, running rings, 12 shots,

:22:20.:22:28.

around everyone else to win here. But 20 years on, in terms of the

:22:29.:22:31.

American influence, I wonder whether the red shirted influence of Tiger

:22:32.:22:37.

Woods will transfer into the orange shirted influence of Rickie Fowler.

:22:38.:22:47.

I cannot go out and make two mini mistakes, I need a solid round of

:22:48.:22:57.

golf. When it comes to the back nine, there are opportunities, where

:22:58.:23:02.

if we are behind, there are some great possibilities on 13 and 15.

:23:03.:23:06.

And some areas where you can make up some ground. It will be fun, but the

:23:07.:23:11.

biggest thing will be to get out of the great -- out of the gate good.

:23:12.:23:16.

Will you allow your mind to wander off and think what it might be like

:23:17.:23:20.

to win this event? I have thought about it before! There is no denying

:23:21.:23:24.

that. There have already been thought. As a kid you are thinking

:23:25.:23:29.

about walking up a team with a five shot lead. If anybody tells you they

:23:30.:23:33.

have a thought about winning the Masters... It will be a special day,

:23:34.:23:40.

I am looking forward to hanging with family and friends tonight, getting

:23:41.:23:44.

some rest. It is a tough week, a good walk, a little up and down. I

:23:45.:23:48.

am looking forward to it. Google Play well tomorrow.

:23:49.:23:54.

He has gone with the orange pants, not the orange shirt! It would look

:23:55.:24:00.

good with the green jacket! He has been superb with his touch on the

:24:01.:24:03.

greens this week, superb putting stats. He has had 79 putts so far,

:24:04.:24:10.

30 out of 30 from five feet. He is the best putter on the board

:24:11.:24:21.

now. Charley Hoffman is putting well as well, Sergio might be the worst.

:24:22.:24:27.

It always comes down to a putt. Unless Sergio can lap the field with

:24:28.:24:31.

his ball striking, it will be a harder challenge for him. Rickie

:24:32.:24:36.

Fowler is the best brand builder since Greg Norman off the course. He

:24:37.:24:42.

has had a top five in all Majors, he does not back off. He's putts go in

:24:43.:24:50.

with authority and conviction. Bubba Watson has inspired him, he has won

:24:51.:24:54.

two Greenjackets, and Rickie Fowler wants to follow him. You like his

:24:55.:25:01.

stroke. You can see a natural feel and flair. Putting is at least 50%

:25:02.:25:11.

touch and feel. He has a beautiful way of running them into the front

:25:12.:25:18.

edge, a loose group. If you can hole from that range consistently, you

:25:19.:25:24.

have got to be in the hunt, and he has put a delightfully. This was 15

:25:25.:25:28.

yesterday. It just flops in, magnificent. Good putting breeds

:25:29.:25:34.

confidence. You think Tom if I make an error, you can catch up. His

:25:35.:25:45.

average, he is picking up three strokes a round on the field. This

:25:46.:25:52.

is his 29th major start, at his plane partner is Jordan Spieth, the

:25:53.:25:55.

most ominous presence on that leaderboard. This man is a master 's

:25:56.:25:58.

machine. You have led going into the final

:25:59.:26:07.

round in every masters you have played so far, will it be a

:26:08.:26:12.

different strategy? To win this tournament, you have to play to win.

:26:13.:26:16.

Other places, you can back off a bit. You can cruise. Here, if you

:26:17.:26:23.

have a chance to go for it, you have a decent number, you have to pull

:26:24.:26:29.

off the shot. In 2015, I have that situation on 13, I chose to go for

:26:30.:26:33.

it, and pulled off the shot and it led to a birdie that kept the lead

:26:34.:26:41.

strong. Those are the moments that people who win this tournament have

:26:42.:26:45.

on Sunday. Tomorrow, it is about when those moments present

:26:46.:26:50.

themselves, being patient, pulling off the shot and recognising that I

:26:51.:26:55.

would know better than anybody that anything can happen on a Sunday.

:26:56.:27:00.

Patients is key. There he is, warming up. For the

:27:01.:27:04.

first time ever he will not be in the final pairing. The last three

:27:05.:27:08.

years he has been a co-leader at least after 54 holes. An astonishing

:27:09.:27:13.

record. He has told himself to seize the moment, Arnold Palmer style.

:27:14.:27:20.

There was a moment yesterday at the 13th.

:27:21.:27:37.

Astonishingly, he went for it, Arnold Palmer style, Phil Mickelson

:27:38.:27:44.

style, and he would have a success at the 13th. Incredible to think

:27:45.:27:48.

about that mindset, to talk yourself into that. It was an interesting

:27:49.:27:56.

thing. The caddies will play a major part today. Saying the right thing

:27:57.:28:00.

at the right time, encouraging your mind to have a go for one. They will

:28:01.:28:04.

have a major influence on the tactics. The leaders have got very

:28:05.:28:11.

experienced caddies. How much do you sense the bones to right the wrong

:28:12.:28:15.

from last year? In his mind he has passed that. He has won twice since

:28:16.:28:22.

then, he has gone past the 12th hole a few times. What a key has the lead

:28:23.:28:26.

on the 12th today? What will run through his mind? There is a lot to

:28:27.:28:30.

look forward to, I forgot about him on the board when I said that Rickie

:28:31.:28:34.

Fowler was the best putter. Everybody on the board is a terrific

:28:35.:28:41.

ball striker, they all have a great game. This should be one heck of a

:28:42.:28:45.

shoot out. The fireworks on the second nine, it could be

:28:46.:28:49.

magnificent. It is the greatest second shot cause, today will be the

:28:50.:28:55.

greatest second shot day in golf. Another interesting fact, we have

:28:56.:29:00.

Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia, then the Americans. The crowd noise could

:29:01.:29:03.

make a difference. If you could get the crowd moving with your group,

:29:04.:29:11.

like the Ryder Cup. It feels like 100% of the fans will be pulling for

:29:12.:29:15.

Rickie Fowler, and for Jordan Spieth as well. It is hard to say that, but

:29:16.:29:21.

the truth be told, they do not favour 1-over the other, but they

:29:22.:29:24.

favour both of them over the Europeans. This is a good three or

:29:25.:29:30.

four times we have mentioned the Ryder Cup, it has that feel, these

:29:31.:29:36.

last two pairings. You might hear some dumb USA, USA chants! I did not

:29:37.:29:44.

want to say it, because once it sticks in my head, I cannot get it

:29:45.:29:46.

out. I always remember that 16th come it

:29:47.:29:58.

is a cauldron of pressure, the noise ricochets around. There is a bit of

:29:59.:30:03.

movement out on the course. We can show you some of the birdies that

:30:04.:30:05.

have been achieved. This is Marc Leishman at the 7th. And this is

:30:06.:30:18.

going to give us an idea. This is what we love about the Sunday at the

:30:19.:30:26.

Masters. Really starting at about Ram Slam, that's when it's going to

:30:27.:30:32.

start to open up for the players. The players will have to be really

:30:33.:30:35.

sensible for the first few holes, not to be too aggressive too early

:30:36.:30:42.

and shoot themselves out of it. They will have all studied the hole

:30:43.:30:46.

locations today, they will know where they're going to attack.

:30:47.:30:51.

Russell Henley, who of course last week won in Houston, to make it to

:30:52.:31:01.

the Masters. And look at that! That is a very, very rare birdie. Paul,

:31:02.:31:07.

what do you make of this man Freddie Couples, 57 years young? It's

:31:08.:31:15.

Freddie Couples, it's really amazing, all the while with a quote

:31:16.:31:23.

bad back! He has so much shoulder turn still for a guy that age,

:31:24.:31:28.

strong chest and strong legs, he still bombs it. Well, this is the

:31:29.:31:34.

leaderboard, Freddie Couples making his move, he's -2, five shots off

:31:35.:31:46.

the pace. We have seen Jimmy Walker, US PGA champion, -1 for today. And

:31:47.:31:53.

Jon Rahm, we like the look of Jon Rahm. He's got fantastic presence.

:31:54.:31:59.

This has been a great learning experience for him. But right on the

:32:00.:32:06.

front page of that, we've been looking at Charley Hoffman and Ryan

:32:07.:32:11.

Moore, both of these fellows in the hunt for their first major.

:32:12.:32:18.

Gentleman, Charley Hoffman, that could double bogey yesterday at the

:32:19.:32:26.

16th but he showed so much nerve in those first couple of days? There

:32:27.:32:32.

has been a lot of pressure on him, he's going to be the most determined

:32:33.:32:37.

guy in the field I think. We'll see what happens. But at this point, it

:32:38.:32:42.

really boils down to, you have to want to win more than you're afraid

:32:43.:32:49.

to fail, it comes down to that. His compatriot Ryan Moore, the two of

:32:50.:32:53.

them are playing together, how much confidence do you think Ryan Moore

:32:54.:32:57.

has been gaining not just from his season last year but also from his

:32:58.:33:05.

Ryder Cup experiences? A could Ryder Cup, you're right at the front. Then

:33:06.:33:12.

you think, I can play golf at the very sharp end. In some ways, the

:33:13.:33:18.

Ryder Cup is even more pressurised. In other tournaments, you can only

:33:19.:33:22.

let yourself down. Anyone who does that in your first Ryder Cup, you've

:33:23.:33:27.

got to say well done. Paul Casey, a man who was in the top four last

:33:28.:33:36.

year. He was a trying to post a good score. I think these early pins,

:33:37.:33:43.

although they're tough, they are much easier than they can be. You

:33:44.:33:50.

can get off to a fast start on that back nine. There's some dangerous

:33:51.:33:56.

hole locations on the front, that one is not one of them. You've just

:33:57.:34:02.

got to be smart and patient and wait, take advantage when you can.

:34:03.:34:10.

To me, it is always about who feels the best at the right moment.

:34:11.:34:15.

Controlling your heart rate. If you can feel your pulse in your

:34:16.:34:18.

fingertips, you've probably what a problem! Who is going to win today?

:34:19.:34:25.

My heart says Sergio, my gut says Justin Rose and Ken? I am a good

:34:26.:34:35.

buddy with Rose, but also Sergio is a firm favourite of mine. It could

:34:36.:34:40.

be any of those four, or someone could come from behind, like Fred

:34:41.:34:43.

Couples. There are two gentlemen waiting on the first tee. Lee

:34:44.:34:50.

Westwood is due off very, very shortly, in the company of Thomas

:34:51.:34:54.

Pieters. And we can join Andrew Cotter and Peter Ellis.

:34:55.:35:01.

PETER ALLISS: Thank you, Hazel. Here he goes, Lee Westwood, in very good

:35:02.:35:12.

shape, played some beautiful golf over the last three days. Needs

:35:13.:35:23.

something in the mid-60s, that could well do it. It's hard work from the

:35:24.:35:25.

very first shot. Sailing away, and... Up the left

:35:26.:35:47.

side, will it hold the fairway? Just off it, should be OK.

:35:48.:35:55.

Thomas Pieters come now driving! Thomas Pieters of Belgium. He can

:35:56.:36:03.

give it a fair old tonk, I can tell you. Recovered very well yesterday,

:36:04.:36:10.

he looked at one stage as though he was heading for 80 but fought back

:36:11.:36:14.

brilliantly towards the end of his round. And here he is. Fifth troop

:36:15.:36:20.

from the end. Oh, I don't know quite what

:36:21.:36:50.

happened, but he's OK, Andrew? Yes, a 3-wood was the choice for Pieters

:36:51.:37:00.

there. He's OK, anyway. Jimmy Walker, this is the Sunday pin

:37:01.:37:08.

position. Just down on the left corner of this green, it is a very

:37:09.:37:21.

small part of the green. That was for a par four. Now, Mickelson,

:37:22.:37:23.

eagle three at Looking back at the 5th. This is a

:37:24.:38:02.

very underrated hole. It looks fairly benign but the greens are

:38:03.:38:09.

very difficult. The greens are very big here, big, long slopes, not all

:38:10.:38:15.

that many places on the green where you get a good area of flat putting

:38:16.:38:17.

surface. Here's Couples... ANDREW COTTER: Not too shabby. The

:38:18.:38:44.

pin is all the way up at the back today. He's gone for the green

:38:45.:38:58.

shirt, eternal optimism. Rory at the second. Unlucky, one bounce forward

:38:59.:39:05.

and that could have gone right down to the hole. Disappointing. Back to

:39:06.:39:15.

Paul Casey on the first for his birdie. He had a terrible putting

:39:16.:39:26.

stance the first two rounds. There we are, final group - friends!

:39:27.:39:37.

Sergio Garcia and his father there. Fowler, warming up. Wonderful

:39:38.:39:54.

practice facilities here. Your field village, Jack Nicklaus's course,

:39:55.:39:58.

also has a wonderful practice area. But here I think beats them all.

:39:59.:40:05.

Butch is close at hand, Fowler's coach. And that is when he will tee

:40:06.:40:13.

off, UK time. Obviously, otherwise he's out very early! As we go to

:40:14.:40:25.

Ross Fisher. A twirl of the club from Fisher. Oh, what a shot! He is

:40:26.:40:35.

+9 so he can afford to go for it. So little between the pin and the front

:40:36.:40:41.

of the green. I'm not sure many of the leaders will be pulling off

:40:42.:40:46.

shots like that. Back to the first, Thomas Pieters, second shot. He

:40:47.:40:56.

won't see much of the green from here.

:40:57.:41:16.

High hands on the putter, Freddie Couples, always been his way. You

:41:17.:41:48.

can see a bit of damage around the hole there, that was Russell Henley,

:41:49.:42:03.

who went straight in. Now, how about this for a putt? This is McIlroy at

:42:04.:42:10.

the second. Got to aim for the top side of the green. Very difficult to

:42:11.:42:15.

get the speed right, but that looks pretty good. Oh, that's brilliant.

:42:16.:42:26.

Brilliant judgment of pace. Westwood on the first.

:42:27.:42:33.

He, too, with a green shirt. Oh, just hit a little bit of an upslope

:42:34.:42:42.

there. That's OK. Another look at Russell Henley.

:42:43.:42:56.

Let's see if we can see the ball actually pitch. Oh, they're not

:42:57.:43:03.

showing that. This is the next hole. He might do it again...! Willet...?

:43:04.:43:14.

Off it goes. He couldn't do it twice in a row...? That's pretty good.

:43:15.:43:25.

He's not quite sure where that's ended up.

:43:26.:43:37.

Curtis Luck, good round he's putting together today. US amateur champion.

:43:38.:43:49.

Big, big talent. Spieth on the practice ground. I find him a very

:43:50.:43:57.

interesting player to watch. In his early early 20s, and he's not an

:43:58.:44:03.

elegant player. At times he looks a bit clumsy. They talk about his

:44:04.:44:09.

magical putting, he does two or three things which are not the

:44:10.:44:13.

accepted rule for people who putt very well. He doesn't look at the

:44:14.:44:20.

ball, looks at the hole, does certain things his own way. Not very

:44:21.:44:25.

balanced, but by God, he gets the job done. Fisher, for eagle on the

:44:26.:44:38.

15th. These players not in contention, but well worth their

:44:39.:44:47.

while to have a look at the holes to see what will be facing the leaders.

:44:48.:44:51.

I did not think there was much reached today, but there's a bit of

:44:52.:45:07.

life in that water. Who yeah, there is a touch of life about. You see

:45:08.:45:12.

that one, you think it must go right, but no, straight as a die.

:45:13.:45:22.

Nice birdie. So nearly an eagle three. +8.

:45:23.:45:33.

Now, Garcia on the range. As ball strikers go, he has always been

:45:34.:45:41.

right up there with the very, very best. Heading off in that final

:45:42.:45:42.

group with Justin Rose. Question, just a question, around

:45:43.:46:00.

his putting. And also, does he have the mentality - which he has

:46:01.:46:06.

questioned himself in the past? And we shall see today whether he does

:46:07.:46:10.

have it. He says he's changed as a person. Up ahead, Lee Westwood for a

:46:11.:46:15.

three... That's a nice start terms for

:46:16.:46:30.

Westwood. Just a bit short with his second shot, nice long opening putt,

:46:31.:46:41.

just settles you down. You get the feeling there are just too many

:46:42.:46:43.

players ahead of Westwood and McIlroy. But one of them could well

:46:44.:46:59.

challenge, Peter. There we are, the damage done by Henley, painted

:47:00.:47:11.

again. And this was heavily's second shot, this is how it happened. In it

:47:12.:47:18.

went for a two! There we are, you see! I don't know whether they're

:47:19.:47:26.

actually cutting a new hole in close ox, with? Yes, brand new hole. -- in

:47:27.:47:36.

close proximity. That's interesting, they're cutting a brand-new hole, so

:47:37.:47:41.

the players still to come are not playing exactly the same course.

:47:42.:47:48.

Well, that's what it looks like. 18 inches away. These are Masters of

:47:49.:48:05.

their craft. A little bit of this, a touch of paprika... Little bit of

:48:06.:48:15.

that. Stick it in for 20 minutes... It's gone, it was never there! Never

:48:16.:48:30.

happened! In goes the white liner. And you didn't see us, we were never

:48:31.:48:33.

hear! Players just waiting behind. As we

:48:34.:48:59.

leave the gardening and take a look at Pieters at the first. He would

:49:00.:49:04.

have followed the line of Westwood's putt to the hole. It's going left...

:49:05.:49:14.

Oh, it came back. Two beautiful long putts, two tidy fours.

:49:15.:49:29.

This is going right at it, is it? No. But this might come down, Peter.

:49:30.:49:50.

Yes, it's got a bit of movement in it. That's a great result, going

:49:51.:49:54.

straight back up the hill. Fisher at the 16th, familiar Sunday

:49:55.:50:10.

pin position. Let's see how Fisher handles it. As we think of the drama

:50:11.:50:16.

to come here in four or five hours' time. That needs to hop up. That's

:50:17.:50:28.

pretty good. Earned his place here with his performance at the World

:50:29.:50:35.

Matchplay a couple of weeks ago. Broomstick Roy, third hole, second

:50:36.:50:45.

shot. That needs to come back... Hit it a little bit too hard and now,

:50:46.:50:50.

he's left himself a very difficult third shot. Henley, gets a birdie.

:50:51.:51:04.

The hole-damager gets back to level par. Charge Swart saw, former

:51:05.:51:13.

winner, just in an awkward spot here. Careful you don't slip.

:51:14.:51:25.

Has he got it online? Just caught the sound I think.

:51:26.:51:38.

Green is certainly the go to colour today. He had that wonderful finish

:51:39.:51:53.

in 2007, clergy in the last four holes. Of course we sent out Ken

:51:54.:51:58.

Brown earlier today to have a look at the course. You can get some

:51:59.:52:04.

adventurous putts here at Augusta National. Some huge breaks, and just

:52:05.:52:14.

have a look at this one. With a putt like this, you've got to pick the

:52:15.:52:17.

high point, where you're going to aim it. I'm going to start it just

:52:18.:52:26.

about there, that's about 12ft left, so let's have a go and see if we can

:52:27.:52:30.

do it. It's all about reading the greens, the feel, the touch. That's

:52:31.:52:38.

almost 15ft left. So we'll start it on that line and see if it'll break.

:52:39.:52:48.

Look at it, it just keeps running round and round. Let's have another

:52:49.:52:52.

go. This putt could easily get away from you. Look at that, it just

:52:53.:52:59.

keeps going. It's like it's sliding down a sheet of lino. These greens

:53:00.:53:19.

are slick! You talk about master potters, Ken Brown would be in my

:53:20.:53:25.

top ten of all time! This is for another one, and he rattles it in,

:53:26.:53:34.

well done! Well done indeed! Four over par. Back to Adam Scott.

:53:35.:53:52.

Beautiful tee-shot. Just needed to come down. Paul Casey, after that

:53:53.:54:02.

superb second at the second hole. Oh, that just got away. Only a

:54:03.:54:11.

birdie. I fancied him to get that one.

:54:12.:54:19.

He'll have a lot of sentimental support, Couples.

:54:20.:54:33.

Westwood, looking down the hill, right into the heart of the second

:54:34.:54:49.

green. The flag away on the right corner, behind that bunker. If this

:54:50.:54:58.

land is in the gap, it can turn right and wonder all the way down to

:54:59.:55:06.

the hole. That's not hard enough. A whisker short. Interesting, the

:55:07.:55:11.

breeze has just picked up a little bit. I think that foxed Westwood.

:55:12.:55:37.

Broomstick Roy, third hole, huge drive, simple little pitch, hit it

:55:38.:55:46.

too hard, leaving him this treacherous putt. It was a question

:55:47.:55:59.

of trying to get down in two. Justin Rose, the man in Black today. Played

:56:00.:56:03.

in the final group in 2015, when Spieth ran away with it. -14, he

:56:04.:56:10.

finished. He has become a beautiful goal for now. -- beautiful all for.

:56:11.:56:22.

Northants golf club, I will be there in a few weeks' time. Just watch the

:56:23.:56:29.

rhythm here. He's a tall fella. Look at that, isn't that lovely? That's

:56:30.:56:37.

the way you do it. And you compare that with Spieth, who looks jerky

:56:38.:56:39.

and out-of-control. But my word... Daniel Berger at the 12th chef would

:56:40.:57:16.

you believe it?! Hallelujah! Come on! Give me some skin! They do talk

:57:17.:57:34.

funny over here. Playing alongside Hagestad steely amateur champion. He

:57:35.:57:41.

is having a bit of a tussle with Curtis Luck for leading to. -- for

:57:42.:57:46.

leading amateur. This looks like McGirt, on the

:57:47.:58:16.

fourth. 233 yards today. A not unpleasant start for McGirt. 69 in

:58:17.:58:22.

the first-round, but dropping out of things thereafter. Now, Jordan

:58:23.:58:32.

Spieth, just having a few little putts. Just a little bit closer than

:58:33.:58:42.

this, he lines it up and then turns his head to the left and looks at

:58:43.:58:49.

the hole. He's not doing it at the moment. Cross handed, as you can

:58:50.:58:55.

see. Three in a row - like shelling peas!

:58:56.:59:04.

Not too shabby, is it? Only been here three times, this is his fourth

:59:05.:59:14.

appearance. This is Curtis Luck. +1 for his round today. This, for par.

:59:15.:59:24.

This might be good enough, but it's going to be close for leading

:59:25.:59:26.

amateur. That's a bit of a sad finish, but +9

:59:27.:59:47.

might still be good enough. Asia-Pacific amateur champion as

:59:48.:59:51.

well - he qualified twice for the Masters.

:59:52.:00:02.

Hole The mid amateur champion, a few of those do well at the Masters.

:00:03.:00:12.

That could be very good. It stopped, how can that do that? It has left

:00:13.:00:27.

him a treacherous left to right. Paul Casey hitting the ball

:00:28.:00:31.

beautifully so far, and iron off the tee at the 3rd, to leave himself a

:00:32.:00:37.

full wage in, get some control. A shallow green, where the pain is.

:00:38.:00:45.

We have seen one or two stick. You normally think it would ramble down.

:00:46.:00:59.

A good Taioseach for Ryan Moore. The flag is middle right. In a bit of a

:01:00.:01:04.

hollow, at the bottom of the slope. He has left a long putt across the

:01:05.:01:11.

green. To say the least. A vision of balance, until he let

:01:12.:01:56.

the club go. Still balance, mind you. Looks very colourful today,

:01:57.:02:05.

like an ice cream sundae. He looked a bit autumnal the other days. ,

:02:06.:02:13.

speakers has done it. Nicely, nicely.

:02:14.:02:23.

A couple of Fairway woods for Justin Rose. Then he will head across to

:02:24.:02:33.

the fairly new practice ground. And then pass the clubhouse, over to the

:02:34.:02:37.

practice putting green, behind the first tee. Teeing off in the final

:02:38.:02:42.

group. It is hard to believe this facility

:02:43.:02:56.

is only used for this one week, apart from members, of course. The

:02:57.:03:02.

club is open for six months of the year. You will not believe the size

:03:03.:03:07.

of the press room. It looks like a hundred bedroom hotel. There must be

:03:08.:03:12.

plans to do other things with it. But I know not what.

:03:13.:03:20.

Ken Brown and Paul Azinger back with us, and raring to go.

:03:21.:03:25.

Thank you, Peter. Jordan Spieth walks through to hit

:03:26.:03:39.

the first tee shot. It is to be a much longer walk to get from the

:03:40.:03:45.

putting green to the first tee. They have moved the first tee back 70

:03:46.:03:55.

yards in the last ten years or so. A good tee shot from Charley Hoffman.

:03:56.:04:00.

The gathering valley here. A bit more accessible. A nice start.

:04:01.:04:09.

Important times. A deep breath there as he plots down into the car.

:04:10.:04:32.

He misses a lot of those. He has missed a couple on Friday.

:04:33.:04:46.

He has got an adventure here. My goodness.

:04:47.:04:57.

Not bad, really. If you let it go to the right, it would have run to the

:04:58.:05:11.

edge of the bunker. There is a ridge where he is now. If he had missed to

:05:12.:05:15.

be right, it would have fed down to the collar. He erred on the safe

:05:16.:05:24.

side. Look at the patrons gathered to watch this showcase.

:05:25.:06:16.

You cannot see it, but the lip is higher than it looks. You get the

:06:17.:06:28.

feeling this to ball will pull most of the local crowd around with them.

:06:29.:06:36.

The patrons, of course. Going with a 3-wood. To take the bunker out of

:06:37.:06:45.

play. A slight breeze behind the players'

:06:46.:06:53.

back. So much for taking the bunker out of

:06:54.:07:06.

play. I do not believe he thought he could reach, but he did.

:07:07.:07:16.

He is going to make a charge, he cannot afford to miss too many of

:07:17.:07:26.

these. He started at level par, and he is back there, if he pops that

:07:27.:07:33.

in. A slightly crock iron off the tee.

:07:34.:07:57.

He has the flame-throwers on today, the red trousers, and what a putt.

:07:58.:08:04.

Treacherously fast. A good three feet of break. A fairly short par-4

:08:05.:08:18.

on the course. A dandy of a start, he moved to a couple under.

:08:19.:08:24.

All of these guys on one or 2-under feel as though they are in

:08:25.:08:29.

contention at the moment. In the last 27 Masters, the

:08:30.:08:46.

champions have always emerged from inside the top five on the

:08:47.:08:51.

leaderboard going into round four. It means that Adam Scott downwards

:08:52.:08:58.

will have to defy those statistics. History says it will be behind --

:08:59.:09:06.

between the top six. Never ruled Jordan Spieth out. Paul Casey on a

:09:07.:09:14.

roll. Great play from him. And Thomas Pieters. We saw Fred Couples

:09:15.:09:18.

with that early birdie. That is so good, I cannot tell you.

:09:19.:09:43.

That is nerveless. Such a difficult speed to be comfortable with. It is

:09:44.:09:48.

not natural for a ball to roll Buckfast on grass. This grass is so

:09:49.:09:58.

tight. The leading amateur at the moment, a two shot cushion on the

:09:59.:10:04.

other player, who has finished his round. Almost. It looks like he is

:10:05.:10:11.

having a great time and he should be.

:10:12.:10:25.

The breeze by the green. A little left to right, slightly helping.

:10:26.:10:39.

There is a tree that hangs over. It will all depend on the light. You

:10:40.:10:46.

see the grooves in the sand. Sometimes the ball sits heavy in the

:10:47.:10:50.

sand. You have to make a clean strike. If you miss short, it is a

:10:51.:10:54.

treacherous up and down. He have to try to cut it in from the

:10:55.:11:07.

middle of the green. The sand is so white, it is like a mirror

:11:08.:11:14.

sometimes, it reflects back at you. Some players will put sunglasses on

:11:15.:11:18.

to play out of these bunkers. Let's see if he can make good contact.

:11:19.:11:37.

That is what he will face. Into the valley. The hole is in a spot, he

:11:38.:11:46.

may not have enough of a backstop to roll in the past and bring it back.

:11:47.:11:55.

We will see what is in store. The way Rickie Fowler is looking, the

:11:56.:12:00.

flag is under the Masters logo, he was looking to the left, he did not

:12:01.:12:03.

think he could get it over the lip. We first saw him at the Walker cup

:12:04.:12:20.

matches in 2007. He looked a scrap of a lad. He was a small fella with

:12:21.:12:29.

a lot of pop. He has 140 yards here. This is all carried to the hole. The

:12:30.:12:36.

green should hold nicely. It is only 122 the front. It is wedge all day

:12:37.:12:44.

long, but he has to go further than the front. It looks like he is

:12:45.:12:48.

hitting some sort of specialty shot. He will try to cut it. A stronger

:12:49.:12:57.

club. Over the point of the bunker. Never much discussion about the

:12:58.:13:03.

bunkers here. But he did not want to play from any of them if you can

:13:04.:13:09.

help it. You do not see this every day.

:13:10.:13:20.

Has he pulled it off? It was a spectacular effort. Not bad from

:13:21.:13:27.

where he was. A little unlucky. If you get tight to the lip, it is

:13:28.:13:32.

difficult to make progress. He is in a better shot than -- better spot

:13:33.:13:38.

than Jordan Spieth. This is really fast. I do not think he can land it

:13:39.:13:42.

on. I was wrong about that. Look at the pace they are walking

:13:43.:14:08.

at. You have to do everything I'm horrid. -- unhurried. Very conscious

:14:09.:14:14.

of their walking pace already. A good line. It just drift away. A

:14:15.:14:26.

lost opportunity. Not a bad spot. Slightly more up the

:14:27.:14:59.

hill from this angle. It ran out of pace. He misjudged it.

:15:00.:15:09.

Who can forget Charl Schwartzel's four birdie finish to win here in a

:15:10.:15:13.

few years back. All great all strikers at the top of

:15:14.:15:29.

the board. Quality players here. The Queen has risen to the top once

:15:30.:15:31.

again. I love the announcement. Good luck

:15:32.:15:39.

to both of you. A 3-wood. The bunker is 278 yards. A

:15:40.:16:21.

bit down when today. He can probably reach with that club but might not

:16:22.:16:23.

know it. That is pretty steady. You wait 23

:16:24.:16:51.

hours, you hit a pearl. Sergio Garcia now driving.

:16:52.:17:03.

310 yards to carry the bunker. A slightly helping breeze. I am sure

:17:04.:17:13.

he wants to go slightly left of it, play a cut of the pine trees.

:17:14.:17:24.

Looks like a sprinter, ready to step off the blocks. He needs a fast but

:17:25.:17:30.

smooth start. That looks like cracker Jack, a

:17:31.:17:58.

lovely flight on it. He could not have placed it in a better spot,

:17:59.:17:59.

that is a gem. That is about as good as you could

:18:00.:18:22.

hope for. I do not think he intended to use the backstop, and I wondered

:18:23.:18:27.

if they could get it far enough back and if the backstop was close

:18:28.:18:31.

enough. It appears to be. That is a pretty good shot. A lovely tight

:18:32.:18:36.

lie. A good to put the Paul Casey. Par is

:18:37.:18:42.

a marvellous score. If you wanted to leave yourself a

:18:43.:19:28.

more nasty, tricky putt from four and a half feet, there is hardly any

:19:29.:19:30.

more. I think it was a misread, to hit it

:19:31.:19:46.

that firmly. He still has the good two feet left.

:19:47.:20:15.

The first green is always the toughest. Once you get past this

:20:16.:20:20.

hole, the nerves will settle down to everybody. Scary tee shot, scary

:20:21.:20:30.

green. He did not look at the hole on either of the putts. It started

:20:31.:20:37.

with the tee shot into the sand. Onto the reachable second now for

:20:38.:21:01.

these two players. The wafer Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia to play their

:21:02.:21:03.

second shot into the first. I thought that would run out a bit

:21:04.:21:18.

more. It is like going down a funfair

:21:19.:21:29.

slide, it keeps true Klingon. Of the greens fast at Augusta? Is

:21:30.:21:41.

Norfolk flat? Justin Rose is ready. He may have is

:21:42.:22:10.

well go right at it. Just a 9-iron or a wedge. No further left than the

:22:11.:22:22.

pine tree you see. It will feed into the right, he has a backstop behind

:22:23.:22:23.

the pin. Do not be short. The flag looked like it was slightly

:22:24.:22:46.

helping early on, but it was straight across for his second shot.

:22:47.:22:53.

If you had given him a ball... This is the awkwardness of the chip. He

:22:54.:22:59.

will have to use the slope beyond the flag. You see where Justin

:23:00.:23:08.

Rose's ball is, how could he have done that? You only have to miss by

:23:09.:23:20.

a small margin to pay a heavy price. Taking another big deep breath. This

:23:21.:23:25.

is a really green light flag. An amazing start for Sergio.

:23:26.:23:53.

Beautiful pressure packed tee shot. A nice wage.

:23:54.:24:00.

We saw his bump and run run six feet past the hole.

:24:01.:24:28.

Caught a little off-guard by the pace of his bunker shot. What a

:24:29.:24:44.

putt. He has got a lot of pedigree. He won the United States amateur. He

:24:45.:24:50.

has had some injuries. A great Ryder Cup.

:24:51.:24:59.

Going with a driver at the short par-4 3rd. He has driven it, this

:25:00.:25:16.

will feed in. Can you believe it? Have you seen one up there before?

:25:17.:25:21.

Never. I have never seen anybody reach. That is a mile away, 350

:25:22.:25:27.

yards. That was nothing but centre cut. He

:25:28.:25:44.

had the big mishap on 16 yesterday, a horrible shot. It does not seem to

:25:45.:25:53.

have affected his confidence at all. Such a delicate touch required here.

:25:54.:26:03.

Played it nicely, just like Lee Westwood, it keeps turning. But at

:26:04.:26:07.

least you are putting back up the hill. Pretty good. Justin Rose has

:26:08.:26:14.

got a decision to make. It will depend on his line and nerve, how he

:26:15.:26:20.

feels. Will he bump this past and try to bring it back like Rickie

:26:21.:26:22.

Fowler? Slightly lower. It just tipped over. On a run of

:26:23.:26:58.

birdies. He has not got the greatest record here.

:26:59.:27:12.

He is starting to make the amateur Silver Medal look more and more his.

:27:13.:27:28.

The hole is in the back right portion of the green. He has got the

:27:29.:27:50.

firepower to land it in the gap. And let it feed in. It is too far left.

:27:51.:28:00.

That will be a fast one. It is like a green Axminster carpet,

:28:01.:28:09.

it is magnificent, the grass. The cup looks to be slipping from

:28:10.:28:24.

right to left, left to right for him. He is aiming well left. Never

:28:25.:28:31.

easy to pick the line when you are putting between two mounts.

:28:32.:28:34.

Beautifully done. First question answered on the exam

:28:35.:28:41.

paper. Quite a bit downhill. The breeze is

:28:42.:28:54.

slightly against. It is a long way away, but it is not

:28:55.:29:19.

that hard a shot. Sergio for birdie. There we go,

:29:20.:29:56.

Sergio! What a start for Justin and Sergio. Great par Justin Rose and an

:29:57.:30:07.

even better birdie the Sergio. You can see Sergio moving along at a

:30:08.:30:15.

nice steady pace. Ryan Moore, second shot at number three, up the hill.

:30:16.:30:21.

You have to be so precise here, not a lot of room. Anything short will

:30:22.:30:30.

be 30 yards off the green. Oh, and hit up a break into that bunker. At

:30:31.:30:36.

it is doable. Birdie chance for Fred Couples from

:30:37.:31:03.

short range. Moves to -2. Hoffman to the third. Leaning... Lovely.

:31:04.:31:08.

KEN BROWN: Just a sliver of putting surface on the third, only ten yards

:31:09.:31:25.

wide. ANDREW COTTER: That bunker on the

:31:26.:31:35.

right-hand focuses the mind, Ken? Yes, looks like he's setting up to

:31:36.:31:40.

go over it - it's a big hit to do that. And the flight he gets, if he

:31:41.:31:58.

gets it right... And that... Ideal. It's 308 to get past that bunker

:31:59.:32:04.

that you saw. Huge hit from Garcia. If your tee-shot drifts, it goes

:32:05.:32:19.

left into that dried up stream. Sit down... Just caught it out of

:32:20.:32:48.

the heel of the club. There is a big, steep lip on that bunker. Now,

:32:49.:33:00.

Jordan Spieth. Wide stance. He's going to flies this...

:33:01.:33:18.

One he has done there is to leave himself back up the hill. And

:33:19.:33:23.

slightly from the left. Interesting way he played it. Yes, it was the

:33:24.:33:30.

wise option, I think. Rory McIlory to save par on the par three 6th. It

:33:31.:33:40.

HAD to drop. He can't afford any more dropped shots. And he needs a

:33:41.:33:49.

good many more birdies. He's got nothing to lose, he doesn't care

:33:50.:33:50.

whether he's 25th Ray fifth. This will take all of Rickie

:33:51.:34:11.

Fowler's skill. Must have been trying to land it a little bit

:34:12.:34:13.

shorter. Martin Kaymer, going for five in a

:34:14.:34:38.

row. And he has it! He has never finished in the top 30 before at the

:34:39.:34:49.

Masters. He's a fader, which does not really suit Augusta National,

:34:50.:34:51.

for the right-hander. You take your relief, and you have

:34:52.:35:11.

got to drop the ball within one club length. We saw the little bracelet,

:35:12.:35:23.

the wristband that Jordan Spieth is wearing, that says WWAD, What Would

:35:24.:35:35.

Arnie Do?. Arnie, like Seve, used to get after

:35:36.:35:53.

the course, if there was a chance of an attacking shot, he would

:35:54.:35:54.

generally have a go at it. It's a relatively easy hole if you

:35:55.:36:27.

just play for a par. But it's relatively tricky if you play for a

:36:28.:36:38.

birdie. Has he got his eye back in? He has. In 15 rounds here at Augusta

:36:39.:36:50.

National, his average score is 70. Pretty amazing. Not too bad!

:36:51.:37:04.

Founder, then, to save his par. -- Fowler.

:37:05.:37:12.

I don't know how he gets his feet through those little holes in his

:37:13.:37:21.

trousers! Charley Hoffman, down the slope, left to right.

:37:22.:37:37.

It's a nasty little pin position, that. Great view of what Garcia has

:37:38.:37:45.

left. Remember, Louis Oosthuizen, 2012, hit it right in the front

:37:46.:37:51.

there. And it went all the way round to the pin. That's what I think

:37:52.:37:56.

Garcia will be hoping to do, feed it round the contours of the green.

:37:57.:38:04.

But depending on trajectory, if you hit it a little bit higher, you can

:38:05.:38:15.

do a fraction further right. You can go almost straight at it but you

:38:16.:38:24.

can't really bounce it up there. On a slight downslope as well, it is

:38:25.:38:27.

hard to really get it up in the air and get it to stop.

:38:28.:38:35.

Feet open, he's setting up for something other fade. -- something

:38:36.:38:52.

of a fade... He WAS going right at it! Well, he did, he wasn't

:38:53.:38:56.

intending to! Double bogey for Moore. Two shots

:38:57.:39:16.

gone at the third, like Mickelson an hour or so ago. One of England's's

:39:17.:39:28.

hopes, Paul Casey, at the 6th, this little table top... Please keep

:39:29.:39:34.

going... If that had been a yard short, it would have been back to

:39:35.:39:44.

his feet. Matthew Fitzpatrick second to the second last.

:39:45.:39:55.

Down it goes. -2 for his round today, started +6. Tied for 30th as

:39:56.:40:04.

it stands. This, to save his par at the par

:40:05.:40:21.

three 6th, Casey. Oh, that's so sweet, that is just magnificent.

:40:22.:40:36.

Good putt holed at the 3rd, and a couple of beauties since then.

:40:37.:40:46.

HAZEL IRVINE: There's the situation, and Sergio Garcia has started off

:40:47.:40:51.

beautifully. Justin Rose hanging onto his coat-tails at the moment.

:40:52.:40:56.

Charley Hoffman has made some ground, this is the man who led by

:40:57.:41:00.

four after the first round, the largest first-round lead for more

:41:01.:41:06.

than 60 years, and he's not going away, the man from California. And

:41:07.:41:10.

another Californian right next to him, Rickie Fowler. Jordan Spieth,

:41:11.:41:15.

who dropped that shot at the first. Some very big names in there. Great

:41:16.:41:26.

progress for Fred Couples and Paul Casey. Remember, the top 12 receive

:41:27.:41:35.

an automatic invitation to come back next year. Martin Kaymer, on that

:41:36.:41:42.

run of five birdies in a row. The record is seven, and it has been

:41:43.:41:50.

done twice, Steve Pete in 1999, and, inevitably, Tiger Woods. Thomas

:41:51.:41:57.

Pieters, in his first Masters, the man who was such a strong presence

:41:58.:42:01.

for the European Ryder Cup team last year in Hazeltine. He's -1 for the

:42:02.:42:10.

tournament. And the hopes of these men have all but gone. Brendan

:42:11.:42:15.

Steele him with a very good round today. So much to come.

:42:16.:42:22.

ANDREW COTTER: Fitzpatrick on the 17th. He was going along so well

:42:23.:42:40.

until the 9th in the second round. He's worked hard to keep going since

:42:41.:42:50.

then. As we go to Rose. KEN BROWN: Certainly a good angle to

:42:51.:42:57.

get to the flag. That should gather up a bit more... That's an absolute

:42:58.:42:59.

gemstone! Spieth, looking for... Oh, really?!

:43:00.:43:13.

That is a huge slice of Fortune. Sergio has got to play to the left

:43:14.:43:40.

and hope he gets far enough up the back bank that it will come back. I

:43:41.:43:52.

think it might... It's dot to keep running. A really creative shot.

:43:53.:44:09.

Now, Westwood from the elevated 16th tee.

:44:10.:44:22.

Such a difficult pin position. Westwood, with one of the finest

:44:23.:44:30.

shots of the day so far. It really is a tiny landing area to stay up

:44:31.:44:37.

the maul if you want to go at the flag, you've got to be just right

:44:38.:44:41.

for stop anything short comes back to you. That's the shot, folks! A

:44:42.:44:59.

little bit more margin of error if you hit it to the right of that pin.

:45:00.:45:08.

Kaymer, on a run of five birdies, this is his third, though, on the

:45:09.:45:19.

14th. Wants that to come back... Oh, that's cruelty.

:45:20.:45:27.

Very quick down the slope, this is for THE perfect start...

:45:28.:45:47.

And look where Jordan Spieth finished. Down, he says. Even with

:45:48.:45:58.

all that spin, it has left him of one, half fairway, half green, to

:45:59.:46:08.

come. Rose, for his birdie. Oh, I don't believe it. His was

:46:09.:46:15.

substantially easier than Sergio's. I wonder what those two misses will

:46:16.:46:40.

do, will it start to nibble away at their minds? But they're is to in a

:46:41.:46:53.

good position. Back to Spieth shortly. First, we go ahead to

:46:54.:47:05.

McIlroy. Very awkward spot number made it look easy. He needs one or

:47:06.:47:26.

two red figures. So, Spieth, wide stance. He probably meant to carry

:47:27.:47:35.

it another eight inches. Hoffman, long, long birdie putt.

:47:36.:47:48.

He's done it very well. KEN BROWN: Adam Scott. At the 5th,

:47:49.:48:23.

playing it pretty well. But he's left himself another one of those.

:48:24.:48:37.

Spieth is in a bit of bother here. Well, he's got one of these putts...

:48:38.:48:47.

Sergio is having a go with the driver.

:48:48.:48:51.

Just goes to show how far Adam Scott's tee-shot was. Caddie number

:48:52.:49:13.

89, that was the same number that Danny Willett had last year. So,

:49:14.:49:20.

Spieth now for his par. Moving already, telling it to slow down as

:49:21.:49:26.

well. That's not in yet for bogey. Early days, but he's some distance

:49:27.:49:32.

back at the moment. Justin Rose going with the big stick as well.

:49:33.:49:39.

Yes, that was a huge drive from Adam Scott, because both these players

:49:40.:49:50.

can shift it. We know it's quick, it looks quick,

:49:51.:50:05.

and by golly, it is quick down this slope.

:50:06.:50:07.

Superb, for Rickie Fowler! -6, one stroke behind Garcia. That's a

:50:08.:50:26.

confidence booster, those ones down the hill. Right on the front bottom

:50:27.:50:39.

level here, Schwartzel, up the hill. Two from here would be very pleasant

:50:40.:50:41.

indeed. It's a big putt, this. If he were to

:50:42.:50:55.

miss, double bogey, he would be five behind Garcia, four behind his

:50:56.:51:05.

playing partner. It's not quite a putter length, so, not quite 3ft.

:51:06.:51:17.

Doesn't look comfortable. It's easy to see it is right-to-left and

:51:18.:51:21.

slightly uphill, it's just about pace.

:51:22.:51:30.

What would Arnie do? Well, heed probably do that!

:51:31.:52:01.

Lee Westwood, lovely tee-shot on the sixth.

:52:02.:52:13.

We were talking about it earlier, the back nine is where the real

:52:14.:52:23.

birdie opportunities come. At the moment, the leaders are having a few

:52:24.:52:30.

struggles on the opening holes. As we move to the 12th, and Phil

:52:31.:52:40.

Mickelson. The pin in its usual Sunday position, on the right side.

:52:41.:52:46.

Phil Mickelson getting a rousing reception, as he always does.

:52:47.:52:54.

Three-time winner. Paul Casey, short of the 7th.

:52:55.:53:04.

That has got to come down. He's watching it. It's very steep, that

:53:05.:53:19.

slope. It might even go past the cup. Only at Augusta!

:53:20.:53:34.

Mickelson, among the also-rans. After the first couple of rounds,

:53:35.:53:43.

you felt sure that he was going to push on. But he has looked a bit

:53:44.:53:45.

weary this week. He's going with a five iron. This

:53:46.:54:14.

has copped to be knotted. It was a massive 5-iron. That was a big ask.

:54:15.:54:28.

-- got to be nutted. Now, this is as uninviting as it looks. The only

:54:29.:54:39.

advantage you've got, you're playing slightly up the slope of the green.

:54:40.:54:41.

Got to land this on a frying pan. Yes, it's an interesting choice to

:54:42.:54:59.

go with driver. Unless you have the absolute power to get there, you do

:55:00.:55:02.

leave yourself with an awkward estimates. Spieth going with the

:55:03.:55:08.

4-iron, that makes a little bit more sense. That's a good tee-shot. Just

:55:09.:55:22.

stays. It hasn't stopped yet. Now, Sergio. He has played someone the

:55:23.:55:30.

full little pitches, but this has got to be spot on. And it was nearly

:55:31.:55:38.

brilliant. When you're pitching up those banks, it's like hitting onto

:55:39.:55:45.

some polished lino. You get some crystal when you make

:55:46.:56:03.

an eagle any time during the Masters. If crystal goblets, rather

:56:04.:56:16.

nice. Fitzpatrick finishes with... Oh! Tiptoed tantalisingly over the

:56:17.:56:33.

right edge of the cup. Started the day on +6. What a start he had,

:56:34.:56:40.

birdies on the first three holes. And it was a mixed bag after that.

:56:41.:56:50.

Went round in 70 in the end. +4 for the man from Sheffield - big talent.

:56:51.:57:01.

Not much bounce on his sand wedge, the ball just nestling a little bit.

:57:02.:57:15.

Pretty darn good. Just having to flip it up over that little bank,

:57:16.:57:28.

it's so tricky. Charley Hoffman, the pin all the way up the back of this

:57:29.:57:38.

fifth green. He might drop from there. He'll need a free THROW, I

:57:39.:57:47.

think! That is in Alcatraz! So, Garcia, remains in this slow

:57:48.:58:04.

motion mode here. Your body and your mind will be telling you to have the

:58:05.:58:09.

urgency, everything will be hurried. Telling himself to calm things down.

:58:10.:58:20.

This is across the slope and a little bit down the hill.

:58:21.:58:30.

Has he...? Oh, you beauty! Right in the centre of the cup. Splendid,

:58:31.:58:47.

splendid start for Garcia. You just know that his mind is going Myler

:58:48.:59:03.

minute. He's padding around, but he's boiling inside.

:59:04.:59:15.

Garcia MIGHT stand on that tea with a three-shot lead. Now, Rose. He's

:59:16.:59:24.

two behind his playing partner. I think you're right, Andrew, I

:59:25.:59:47.

think Sergio's mind is just running a mile a minute. But if you look at

:59:48.:59:53.

the body, it looks calm, he's walking at such a leisurely pace.

:59:54.:00:00.

PETER ALLISS: Now, Spieth. Long birdie putt. Just a touch more and

:00:01.:00:06.

it was there. Not the best of starts for the young fella. So much

:00:07.:00:16.

expectation surrounding this Sunday play, but it hasn't happened yet.

:00:17.:00:27.

Plenty of time. He thought he had got this.

:00:28.:00:42.

Adam Scott at the 6th for birdie. A mile a minute been there. Don't

:00:43.:00:54.

count Adam Scott out just yet. Now, Fowler for his par at the 4th.

:00:55.:01:17.

He is putted magnificently from this distance so far. Time after time, he

:01:18.:01:22.

has holed these, mostly it must be said, for par.

:01:23.:01:27.

A shot dropped on this Super Sunday, Seve 's Sunday. Westwood on seven.

:01:28.:01:51.

He's got a backstop, with the bunkers. That will come back. There

:01:52.:01:58.

it goes, does it have the pace to reach? It is on a good line. Oh...

:01:59.:02:08.

He knows how to play here. McIlroy, for a birdie at the 8th. Well done,

:02:09.:02:20.

but he's running out of holes. Sergio at the 4th. 233 yards today.

:02:21.:02:42.

Pretty well the furthest back tee, the back of the back tee. A little

:02:43.:02:51.

help here, Peter. It is a full 222 to the bunker, 233 to the hole. He

:02:52.:02:54.

likes the look of it. Safely on. Sergio playing with Justin Rose, the

:02:55.:03:16.

last pair out. Now to Hoffman, a drop away from the grandstand on the

:03:17.:03:18.

left, third shot to the fifth. It's a big green, but it's a small

:03:19.:03:44.

target. The yardage doesn't fit, it can be a tough spot here. He won't

:03:45.:03:48.

want to take anything off a long iron. It is a 5-iron.

:03:49.:04:00.

Safely on, but you can see it is getting further and further away

:04:01.:04:07.

from the hole. Treacherous for about 20 yards, very difficult to get it

:04:08.:04:08.

stone dead. So easy to drop a shot. Hoffman, par putt on the way. Oh...

:04:09.:04:27.

It looked good! He thought he had it. A dropped shot here at five,

:04:28.:04:32.

moving Hoffman back to for Rhondda now. Four shots off of Sergio's

:04:33.:04:36.

lead. HAZEL IRVINE: You remember the

:04:37.:04:44.

exploits of Matthew Fitzpatrick here last year in his first professional

:04:45.:04:48.

start, he was tied for seventh. What a start it was. He will have two

:04:49.:04:53.

settle for a 4-over total today after a nice round today of 70.

:04:54.:05:00.

Let's hear his thoughts. Two under today, what was it like

:05:01.:05:07.

out there? It was better today. Obviously, the flags are pretty

:05:08.:05:10.

traditional on a Sunday. Everyone knows where they are, I have learned

:05:11.:05:15.

a lot from last year. So you know where to hit it on the fairways and

:05:16.:05:18.

on the greens. That experience helps.

:05:19.:05:24.

This is your third appearance at the Masters, and it is a cliche people

:05:25.:05:29.

use, learning from every experience, so is there anything in particular

:05:30.:05:32.

from these four rounds that you will take away with you? The big thing

:05:33.:05:38.

around here, you have got to chip the ball incredibly well, it is

:05:39.:05:42.

really important that you have fresh groups before you play here, because

:05:43.:05:47.

once the greens dry out, it becomes really tough. I think it is really

:05:48.:05:51.

important to get your pitching numbers really good, and you're

:05:52.:05:54.

chipping in general. A word on what might happen at the

:05:55.:05:58.

top of the leaderboard later today, any idea of how low the guys at the

:05:59.:06:03.

top could go? Definitely low. The pins out there are there to go out.

:06:04.:06:11.

There are some nice ones to make birdies, don't get me wrong, there

:06:12.:06:14.

are tricky once, but if you play smart to them, you take par and push

:06:15.:06:18.

on from there. Thanks for coming in. Well done

:06:19.:06:19.

today. Thank you. COMMENTATOR: Martin Kaymer at the

:06:20.:06:31.

15th, straight up the hill, a great run by and he has done it again. He

:06:32.:06:36.

has been a birdie machine for the last hour, our and a half. But he

:06:37.:06:39.

started too far back. Eagle putt on the way for Phil

:06:40.:06:45.

Mickelson on 13. Not going to happen this year for

:06:46.:07:11.

Phil. He has three jackets in his locker at the moment. Out in 38, he

:07:12.:07:22.

dropped a shot, one birdie on the way home "Not my day..."

:07:23.:07:28.

I tell you what, if Justin Rose gets down in two from here, a chance at

:07:29.:07:37.

the 2nd missed from less than a yard. A monster putt, speed is

:07:38.:07:47.

important. So important. We talk about Seve 's birthday, it

:07:48.:08:02.

is my daughter and her son's birthday, too. I wonder if they will

:08:03.:08:04.

stay up and listen to grampa. Not too hard to four putt from this

:08:05.:08:24.

range if you just get it a bit wrong, get a bit too excited.

:08:25.:08:32.

Turning a bit early. Not high enough, not quite hard enough. 7-8

:08:33.:08:39.

feet away. 5th hole, Rickie Fowler, second

:08:40.:08:52.

shot. Big difference. The first cut on the shorter grass. He's let go of

:08:53.:08:55.

it. Write down there where Charley

:08:56.:09:03.

Hoffman was, he hit his free drop and had at ethical little pitch back

:09:04.:09:08.

up that hill. A pretty high slope, a good five feet above him. Spieth

:09:09.:09:10.

now. Plenty of room past the flag here at

:09:11.:09:53.

seven. That will follow in. Oh... Settle. APPLAUSE

:09:54.:10:07.

Sergio, keep it up, left. A bit high, a bit hard. Tailed away and

:10:08.:10:14.

coming down. That's nicely done. You don't really hold many putts at that

:10:15.:10:24.

length on these greens at Augusta. On the sick, all the way on the far

:10:25.:10:30.

right side, 187 yards. No room for error here. It has to be perfect.

:10:31.:10:36.

Will it stay? Yes, and that's a terrific shot!

:10:37.:10:46.

Charley's not done yet. You never know. Now, this is, you feel this

:10:47.:11:00.

has to go in for Justin. You can't miss these. That's a bit of a daft

:11:01.:11:04.

thing to say, really, because you never know what will happen, someone

:11:05.:11:08.

could do what ever, whatever. But you really don't want to be dropping

:11:09.:11:12.

shots are necessary, a bit of a white tee shot here at a fourth,

:11:13.:11:14.

which is a difficult par-3. A great sigh of relief as that goes

:11:15.:11:26.

in. A good putt, well struck. Four pars for Rose.

:11:27.:11:39.

Paul Casey, third shot at the 8th. Right on the front of the green. It

:11:40.:11:56.

might come back. I'm not sure if he planned that. He'll take it.

:11:57.:12:00.

APPLAUSE You have got to control the

:12:01.:12:10.

controllable is at Augusta National, the bounce of the ball is not always

:12:11.:12:15.

something you can control. Back to McIlroy at nine. Hole sitting on

:12:16.:12:27.

that middle tier. That will be a tough putt. He will probably have to

:12:28.:12:31.

played at eight feet out on the left. Now, Casey after that, well, a

:12:32.:12:40.

good result on that chip, which was wide and came off the slope. Going

:12:41.:12:47.

along nicely, 3-under. You never know.

:12:48.:12:55.

Justin Rose will be the third engagement to win the Masters, we

:12:56.:13:03.

know the other two. Sergio would be the third Spaniard, we certainly

:13:04.:13:08.

remember Seve Ballesteros and Jose-Maria. Jordan Spieth would be

:13:09.:13:13.

the youngest to win two Masters. Rickie Fowler in search of his first

:13:14.:13:15.

major. If my We don't often get to see this hole

:13:16.:13:31.

from behind off the tee. That is Sergio's tee shot going with a

:13:32.:13:36.

3-wood. He has got to avoid the big bunkers on the left. A very

:13:37.:13:42.

difficult second shot to an unforgiving green. Rickie now trying

:13:43.:13:46.

to pick it back up the slope from where Charley Hoffman was a minute

:13:47.:13:52.

ago. Can he do it better than Charley? It looks like he has. He

:13:53.:14:00.

has. Great touch. That's about all he could hope for from down there.

:14:01.:14:04.

Justin Rose, tee shot at the 5th. Swinging dogleg from right-to-left.

:14:05.:14:10.

Very underestimated hole. Casey now. Tapping this in for his

:14:11.:14:37.

birdie at the 8th. In she goes. One, two, three birdies and 3-under par.

:14:38.:14:43.

Spieth up the hill on five. This would be a great birdie. Look at it

:14:44.:14:53.

though. Settle. Those will give you grey hairs at an early age,

:14:54.:14:59.

especially round here. Now, Charley Hoffman, the forgotten man. Nobody

:15:00.:15:03.

has mentioned him on their local TV this morning. They thought he

:15:04.:15:08.

wouldn't figure. So far, nothing happening for Charley. But he is not

:15:09.:15:10.

1 million miles behind. Oh, Adam Scott, he has hit some

:15:11.:15:22.

great putts in the last couple of days that haven't gone in. He has

:15:23.:15:27.

holed plenty. He has hit some beautiful putts just like that.

:15:28.:15:34.

Might have the power to hit this next par 50. Fowler for par at the

:15:35.:15:42.

5th. No, stayed left. Shot dropped. Two

:15:43.:15:51.

bogeys in a row for Rickie. Now then, here's our amateur.

:15:52.:16:22.

Stewart Hagestad is doing very well, this to finish at 5-over.

:16:23.:16:30.

Come on, come on, com on... They don't get much closer than that. A

:16:31.:16:43.

good four days for the amateur. Steady stuff, a couple of 73s, two

:16:44.:16:54.

74s. And he wins the amateur prize, which is always something nice to

:16:55.:17:03.

have on your mantelpiece. "I Was the leading amateur at the Masters".

:17:04.:17:09.

Spieth to clean this up for par at five.

:17:10.:17:12.

Let's see if he looks at the hole. He is looking at the hole. And it

:17:13.:17:16.

just comes around and goes in. Now, Fowler. You all see how

:17:17.:17:37.

carefully, they take a lot of time on these 20 inches. So easy to miss

:17:38.:17:47.

and slip them by. Two bogeys, one birdie, 4-under. Work to do.

:17:48.:18:03.

Rory McIlroy at nine, look how much break he's playing here. This is

:18:04.:18:11.

really, really fast. It will swing almost a 90 degrees angle to his

:18:12.:18:15.

right. Not quite 90 degrees, but always on the fence on a putts like

:18:16.:18:23.

that here, four feet past the hole, it can race 40 yards past the green.

:18:24.:18:29.

He will have two works in real magic on this second nine, Rory will, post

:18:30.:18:37.

a score. He needs to get back in 30, doesn't he. It has been done before

:18:38.:18:41.

a number of times. Bobby Jones, what would he think of speeds of the

:18:42.:18:46.

greens now? I think he'd have something to say. Not all that sure

:18:47.:18:52.

he would be in favour of them being quite so fast and quite so slow.

:18:53.:18:56.

Quite a hard speed to get comfortable on and get used to.

:18:57.:19:02.

Perfect tee shot here at the 5th for Sergio, laying up with 3-wood off

:19:03.:19:14.

the tee. Two shots ahead at the moment.

:19:15.:19:19.

You don't want to miss right here or less, it is one of those ones where

:19:20.:19:27.

you have to go right at it. You have got to fly the right distance.

:19:28.:19:35.

Go! Go! Go! Is it over the ledge? No, it's going

:19:36.:19:46.

to go away, and it's going to roll back 35-40 feet from there. Maybe

:19:47.:19:52.

not. It is going sideways. It could stick. That is a great break, Peter.

:19:53.:19:57.

Another foot and it is down to the front of the green. He will be happy

:19:58.:19:59.

when he sees where that ended up. Justin Rose. Two behind Sergio. 185

:20:00.:20:17.

to go. It doesn't look that far, does it, it looks a little bit

:20:18.:20:21.

further from here Mac. UCB humps and bonds at the front of

:20:22.:20:31.

the green. This is a dangerous hole, it is one where you tell yourself

:20:32.:20:34.

that there is no rule where you have two BP in high. Just get over the

:20:35.:20:41.

ridge that Sergio ran along. He needs a good shot here.

:20:42.:20:49.

A seven? A six? 185. He has 7-iron, but the number he wants is 170 to

:20:50.:20:59.

carry that full is front that Sergio ran along. Just carry that. If used

:21:00.:21:05.

if it, that's a bonus. You just want to get out of here with a good,

:21:06.:21:09.

solid par. A good rhythm. A good-looking swing. Has he got the

:21:10.:21:14.

result it deserved? He hasn't. Bit short. He will go back, then. A

:21:15.:21:21.

devilishly difficult putt from there.

:21:22.:21:28.

Nope. There are all finding it difficult, they're all making

:21:29.:21:46.

mistakes, striking the ball well, Mr had in the distance, taking the

:21:47.:21:51.

wrong club. It is making it very, very difficult. -- misjudging the

:21:52.:22:03.

distance. Hoffman from a long way back. He wants to take the fund

:22:04.:22:08.

bunkers out of play here. -- the front bunkers.

:22:09.:22:11.

That will stick up the top. That leaves him an awkward one from

:22:12.:22:20.

there. Oh, Charley, it's not, my darling. Westwood for par at the

:22:21.:22:28.

8th. Where have you been, Westy? You don't want 15 or 16 for it putts.

:22:29.:22:35.

All is forgiven. Saved the day. Oh, yes. He's still in the fight,

:22:36.:22:43.

you know, the old fella. A big 7-iron for Rickie Fowler here

:22:44.:22:59.

at six. We just saw his playing partner come up short and roll all

:23:00.:23:05.

the way back off the green. If he hits this short, he is begging for

:23:06.:23:10.

it to go, and that has no chance. Another misjudgement. Whatever you

:23:11.:23:14.

want to call it, but they are 25 yards short of the flag. I know it

:23:15.:23:18.

is difficult, but we keep hearing how special they are these days. All

:23:19.:23:24.

the distances, yardages, everything you can think of. Here's Casey, can

:23:25.:23:29.

he do it at the 9th? Second shot, beautiful drive. Nipped it up,

:23:30.:23:33.

hardly touched the grass, skimmed it. It should bite, it does. And

:23:34.:23:41.

sits down. That could have spun back off the green and didn't. Chance for

:23:42.:23:42.

a three. You have got to believe Thomas

:23:43.:23:51.

Pieters is going to get in contention here at Augusta National.

:23:52.:23:57.

Some great experiences. He was under the pressure right out of the gate

:23:58.:24:04.

this week. Terrific golf in windy conditions, a couple of miscues,

:24:05.:24:12.

couple of double bogeys on day one. All the leaders have tricky putts.

:24:13.:24:17.

Ken knows a thing or two about tricky putts.

:24:18.:24:22.

Here he is. Let's look at this putt. Up the slope, pop one up the hill.

:24:23.:24:27.

If you don't quite hit it firm enough, you think, that's not too

:24:28.:24:35.

bad. In, or watch. Slight misjudgement, and you think, someone

:24:36.:24:41.

is taking the Mickey here. My boomerang won't come back... They

:24:42.:24:49.

are so tricky, these greens. And they can make you look a right fool.

:24:50.:24:58.

They certainly can. Justin Rose will be delighted to get down in two from

:24:59.:25:04.

here. We have seen longer ones holed.

:25:05.:25:06.

A bit pacey. Oh, my good God. That is what good, old Henry Cooper used

:25:07.:25:19.

to say. He's knocked it off the green. Perfect position here: Ryan

:25:20.:25:27.

Moore. A couple of stumbles in the last few holes. Six shots off the

:25:28.:25:36.

pace. The ball will follow here. No need to funnel when you land it

:25:37.:25:43.

there. Easy birdie Ryan Moore. Back to Sergio at five, up the hill. He's

:25:44.:25:50.

just watched Justin Rose's Paul Bracewell I. I wouldn't be surprised

:25:51.:26:01.

if this comes up 3-4 foot short. -- watched Justin Rose's ball race by.

:26:02.:26:09.

It is faster than you think. A good teacher from Justin Rose. What a

:26:10.:26:17.

good effort from Sergio. Perfect. Two really good long putts in a row.

:26:18.:26:23.

Sergio's touch on the greens will maybe be the difference maker today

:26:24.:26:32.

for him. Every hole that ticks by, Sergio's just going along nicely.

:26:33.:26:37.

He's had those two birdies. Justin Rose misses a little putt. He's

:26:38.:26:43.

struggling here. Spieth, second shot at six. A skid, but that's got away

:26:44.:26:49.

from him. Spieth's struggling. He'll have to make that to remain

:26:50.:27:01.

3-under par, five back. Charley Hoffman now. Look at this. Putting

:27:02.:27:09.

along the edge of the green. No, no, no, no... So stupid. Ken said

:27:10.:27:15.

moments ago and you can have shot around the greens that make you look

:27:16.:27:18.

silly. Well, that's the sort of thing he meant. This would be a

:27:19.:27:25.

magnificent par save from Justin Rose. He's holed some beautiful

:27:26.:27:32.

putts already today. A fantastic putt at one for par.

:27:33.:27:37.

Not this one. All really set up by the miscued second shot, the mist

:27:38.:27:48.

club with the 7-iron, or slightly mis-hit it, but that was a tough

:27:49.:27:53.

2-putt for Justin. Rickie Fowler from the front of the sixth. Spieth

:27:54.:28:00.

has almost gone to the back of the green. Still leaving an awkward one.

:28:01.:28:08.

Rose finishing off. In she goes a shot dropped.

:28:09.:28:20.

He meant business on that. No doubt. What a beautiful outward half, very

:28:21.:28:46.

clean. Four birdies, no bogeys. Paul Casey now just four back, a position

:28:47.:28:50.

to post. A look at Jordan Spieth for his par

:28:51.:28:52.

on the sixth. Not even close. Surprised by Spieth

:28:53.:29:11.

so far. Adam Scott at eight. Lots of choices here, takes the high route.

:29:12.:29:15.

Not great. But a birdie chance, nonetheless. Adam Scott sitting

:29:16.:29:25.

nicely at 3-under par. He would be entirely unhappy beating Paul Casey

:29:26.:29:33.

at the moment. Fowler rolls it in. He's hanging on at the moment. A

:29:34.:29:41.

couple of shots gone in the last three holes, though. Well,

:29:42.:29:47.

inexcusable for Charley Hoffman not to get his ball to that position in

:29:48.:29:51.

three. That's going to be a double bogey. Really, it may just end

:29:52.:29:57.

Charley's chances now as he drops back to 2-under par, six shots off

:29:58.:30:04.

the pace. Still a long way to go, but the American challenge has not

:30:05.:30:08.

started well on this final day. Spieth to drop just one.

:30:09.:30:21.

Spieth back to two, alongside Hoffman.

:30:22.:30:31.

Not even close. He has hit some great putts that have not gone in

:30:32.:30:39.

and the occasional poor one. You get the feeling Phil Mickelson

:30:40.:30:51.

came out with both barrels blazing, got aggressive on the first nine and

:30:52.:30:55.

made some bogeys. The first six holes here pretty punishing today.

:30:56.:31:03.

What a shot. That might be a sign of what is to come, certainly possible

:31:04.:31:05.

here at 15. See how the leaders handle that in

:31:06.:31:19.

an hour. Westwood's second, up to the ninth. 139 and the pin today, it

:31:20.:31:27.

is front right. What a shot from Westwood. Above the hole but if he

:31:28.:31:37.

rolls that in he will get to 2-under. There is no hiding at

:31:38.:31:44.

Augusta National. Sergio knows he is three shots here. Massive scoreboard

:31:45.:31:47.

is all over the golf course. A really difficult shot to get

:31:48.:32:09.

close. Some access of all -- accessible hole locations. Will it

:32:10.:32:18.

stay? You can watch with us or with the featured groups on the red

:32:19.:32:23.

button. You can watch the 15th, 16th, you can watch Amen Corner. A

:32:24.:32:27.

lot of ways to watch the final round.

:32:28.:32:58.

I remember when he won in 2004, Paul Casey on his debut tied six and

:32:59.:33:07.

waited for Phil Mickelson to congratulate Tim. Rose on the sixth.

:33:08.:33:15.

Can he find a corner? He certainly can. What a shot from Justin Rose.

:33:16.:33:21.

He has been a bit loose, a bit wayward so far.

:33:22.:33:37.

Rickie, 3-wood. The tightest hole on the course. Almost impossible to get

:33:38.:33:48.

it on the green from there. Down into the shadows. Stops behind

:33:49.:34:00.

JP. Three bogeys already today on his

:34:01.:34:27.

card, Jordan Spieth. Must be a strange feeling. Every hole has a

:34:28.:34:31.

bit of movement. This is the only dead straight one.

:34:32.:34:35.

He gets that away well as we go to Schwartzel.

:34:36.:34:54.

This is from the side of the hill. A long way back, as well.

:34:55.:35:14.

That is pretty well done. Vacated the green for the group behind him.

:35:15.:35:25.

He can certainly post a target. Well, are there enough holes? They

:35:26.:35:38.

still have a chance. Come up a bit further. That will be

:35:39.:36:01.

good, but a little bit shy. I say good, it is better than that.

:36:02.:36:11.

Some of the notable names a bit further down the leaderboard. We

:36:12.:36:17.

have seen McIlroy. Matsuyama. Jason Day.

:36:18.:36:25.

We can look at the tee shot on the 11th.

:36:26.:36:40.

Pretty straight. Just blasted. Carries the 300 yard mark no

:36:41.:36:52.

problem, down towards the 350 mark. Rickie Fowler, virtually in jail.

:36:53.:36:59.

Looking as if to hoist it over the pine trees. He certainly got it up

:37:00.:37:10.

sharply. Oh, that was a wonderful shot from Rickie Fowler and it will

:37:11.:37:14.

come back. It really is a miracle to get a shot from over there to go

:37:15.:37:21.

through the gap and over. It is just fabulous. Look how far back he was

:37:22.:37:27.

compared to where Jordan Spieth drove it. Now, Sergio. This will

:37:28.:37:37.

require great touch. He has hit two terrific long putts in a row and

:37:38.:37:44.

that is pretty good. Good leave, straight up the hill. Spieth, dead

:37:45.:37:51.

centre. Ideally go beyond the flag and comeback. Or, do that. Jordan

:37:52.:37:59.

clearly not feeling it today. That is a mis-hit. I don't believe he

:38:00.:38:09.

makes bad decisions, but we do not always hit the sweet spot. You've

:38:10.:38:13.

got to believe that was a little thin. Jordan now in big trouble. We

:38:14.:38:20.

saw the schools, the final pairings. Rose to get one back. He creeps

:38:21.:38:29.

closer to Sergio Garcia. Garcia with a four foot to come.

:38:30.:38:40.

For yet another birdie. That is a terrific par at the 10th, a scary

:38:41.:38:45.

hole, the tenth. You think with his distance and the

:38:46.:39:02.

par-5s, as well... Well, most of the players have the distance, that he

:39:03.:39:06.

will be going in with shortish irons. Garcia, not quite into Match

:39:07.:39:20.

Play situation yet, but this final pairing could get very interesting.

:39:21.:39:26.

I think Justin Rose is just the guys Sergio does not want to have to to

:39:27.:39:32.

stare down. If this were Match Play, you know Sergio Woodberry this putt.

:39:33.:39:37.

-- he would That is pretty impressive. Garcia

:39:38.:40:05.

trying to follow these greats of the game. Seve, the first European to

:40:06.:40:11.

win it in 1980. McIlroy to the heart of the 11th

:40:12.:40:37.

green. Quick screens and quick fairways, as Ken Browne has been

:40:38.:40:42.

discovering. A quirk at Augusta is how they cut

:40:43.:40:47.

the fairway. They cut back to the tee because it makes the course play

:40:48.:40:52.

longer. The grasses combed. This way it looks a little dark and this way

:40:53.:40:58.

with a bit of luck it looks shiny. It makes the course play longer, the

:40:59.:41:03.

ball does not run out so much. I have invented this to measure the

:41:04.:41:10.

speed of the fairways. First of all you have to find a flattish bit of

:41:11.:41:17.

fairway, which is not easy here. I will roll a couple of balls to make

:41:18.:41:21.

sure it is in consistent position. It is going down, so it should be

:41:22.:41:29.

quicker this way. I will mark where we started this from. That is going

:41:30.:41:35.

down the shiny cut. Let's try this way. Consistently start the ball is

:41:36.:41:45.

at the top. See what I mean? That way, the fairways are not as quick.

:41:46.:41:53.

It is a sneaky thing they do. Very few players drive over 300 yards

:41:54.:41:57.

average for the week because of the way they cut the fairways. A little

:41:58.:42:04.

bit of masters magic. I remember when they changed the cut of the

:42:05.:42:09.

fairways. What a shot. What a shot. Justin Rose off the back of that

:42:10.:42:26.

birdie. Par on this every day so far. Beauty, they say, and he

:42:27.:42:37.

agrees. It is not Match Play yet but I feel the advantage for Justin Rose

:42:38.:42:42.

to tee off first now and continue to apply pressure on Sergio. Jordan

:42:43.:42:50.

Spieth, an unforced error at seven. No excuse to come up short with the

:42:51.:42:56.

backstop behind the flag. Struggling for par again. Definitely a birdie

:42:57.:43:01.

hole from where he drove it. He will be kicking himself. That was a few

:43:02.:43:05.

moments ago and this from Rickie Fowler. He just has too sent it out

:43:06.:43:12.

and hope he finds the breaking point. He came up a little bit shy.

:43:13.:43:15.

I'm not shy. -- a lot shy. Shaping up into a

:43:16.:43:35.

two-man battle now, not to minimise the guys back, you know if you draw

:43:36.:43:48.

it back, and missed the fairway wide, you are likely not going to

:43:49.:43:51.

get it on the green. It is not coming back. He needs a break and he

:43:52.:43:58.

does not get one. It goes the opposite direction. He will struggle

:43:59.:44:06.

for par at seven. Just little momentum shifts in this

:44:07.:44:10.

final round. Slipping for the moment away from Sergio Garcia. Garcia

:44:11.:44:18.

closing in on Monte and Westwood, most major starts without a win. --

:44:19.:44:34.

Monty. Spieth now, to save par. He has it. He stays to -- two under.

:44:35.:44:45.

Six behind Garcia, but so much can happen.

:44:46.:44:54.

Rickie, this is just... He is the one guy who hits those putts with

:44:55.:45:09.

such an aggressive attitude. Not that he is hitting too hard, but the

:45:10.:45:14.

confidence with which he strikes the putt is something to behold. He is

:45:15.:45:18.

leading the American challenge. Martin Kaymer to finish.

:45:19.:45:24.

That is a shame. He has never, until this year, fared well at the

:45:25.:45:32.

Masters. But a decent final round will give him his first top 20,

:45:33.:45:39.

probably top 15. Look at the run that ended on the 14th.

:45:40.:45:51.

See if Schwartzel campaign it off at nine. -- can pay.

:45:52.:46:05.

McIlroy, a long birdie attempt on the 11th.

:46:06.:46:13.

HAZEL IRVINE: Fascinating, isn't it, this last night of the Masters?

:46:14.:46:39.

Rose, with a birdie on the sixth, putting the squeeze on Garcia. Paul

:46:40.:46:43.

Casey has leapt up the leaderboard into a tie for third with Rickie

:46:44.:46:51.

Fowler. The vaunted all-American pairing of Fowler and Spieth has

:46:52.:46:56.

made a stuttering start with Jordan Spieth dropping out of the picture

:46:57.:47:02.

here. Meanwhile, Adam Scott, steady, level. Charl Schwartzel also on the

:47:03.:47:07.

boot. Russell Henley on the move, the man who won in Houston last week

:47:08.:47:13.

to guarantee himself a spot in the fields.

:47:14.:47:20.

Lee Westwood, 1-under for his round, but he made five birdies on the

:47:21.:47:28.

bounce on day one. Anything can still happen.

:47:29.:47:33.

A nice bounce back for Hoffman at eight. Tough front nine today. A lot

:47:34.:47:46.

of players are struggling. Nobody really putting the pressure on

:47:47.:47:52.

Garcia. Fowler strikes one on the eighth. I think he was anxious.

:47:53.:48:00.

Getting close to the bunkers, but that is a big hit. That is enormous.

:48:01.:48:08.

Sergio jailed here at seven. You have to decide if the front bunker

:48:09.:48:18.

is the place to be. Maybe the right is better than the front. The same

:48:19.:48:23.

shot yesterday and he came up short of the bunkers, hoping for an

:48:24.:48:29.

upslope, in a similar position. Hoping to get it chasing up to the

:48:30.:48:31.

bunkers. Sergio is a great bunker player.

:48:32.:48:43.

Needs to get the ball that least passed the Shadow in the distance.

:48:44.:48:51.

That was good contact. Yes. I think he has done that on purpose. That is

:48:52.:48:56.

the right decision. Those bunkers are difficult. He is a fabulous sand

:48:57.:49:08.

player. Westwood to save his par on the

:49:09.:49:10.

tenth. Back to even par today. Lee Westwood

:49:11.:49:33.

misses left and right. Justin Rose could not have put it in a better

:49:34.:49:40.

spot. Just hoist it up, at least passed the hole.

:49:41.:49:50.

That is just what you want to do. This has a really good chance.

:49:51.:50:03.

Steady now. OK. The pressure continues to build on Garcia, coming

:50:04.:50:09.

from his player partner. Casey, standing in the pine needles. Over

:50:10.:50:17.

the water. You cannot turn it around too much from right to left because

:50:18.:50:21.

it will take the contours and head to the water, but that is a very

:50:22.:50:29.

good shot from Paul Casey. That is not too bad. Heading towards the

:50:30.:50:33.

water, which will test your nerve, but that could have been worse. He

:50:34.:50:35.

had a narrow channel. Something special must happen here.

:50:36.:50:44.

That is pretty clever. McIlroy, 155 yards to this famous

:50:45.:51:07.

pin position. An easy nine for McIlroy.

:51:08.:51:18.

A bit of an upslope. Options. He does have options. You can try to

:51:19.:51:26.

fit it between the hole and the flag all run it up to the back of the

:51:27.:51:31.

greens. Experience pays dividends here. Going long right, it looks

:51:32.:51:40.

like. Not too far because it could come back well past the hole. That's

:51:41.:51:47.

about right. Gather speed now, go on. Not there. No. Oh, that is a

:51:48.:52:02.

devilishly fast putt. Wanted it to go further up the slope to gather

:52:03.:52:06.

momentum back down. Garcia yesterday. This was a par on

:52:07.:52:14.

the ninth. He had a few putting problems. A good one on six today,

:52:15.:52:23.

which should give him confidence. This is more difficult. He cannot

:52:24.:52:28.

hit it hard. It goes down with such little pace, it wanders around.

:52:29.:52:36.

Charley Hoffman, Wayne left on nine. -- way left. Managed to miss the

:52:37.:52:51.

tree. Oh, my goodness, right on nine. That will run back.

:52:52.:53:07.

Garcia studying this putt. Six feet. Two shots clear. Rose two clear of

:53:08.:53:20.

Fowler. The final group just separating themselves a little bit.

:53:21.:53:25.

Rose in so close. McIlroy needs to find a couple of birdies on the back

:53:26.:53:30.

nine, and then a couple more, and a couple more after that.

:53:31.:53:35.

You know it is not going to be for McIlroy.

:53:36.:53:50.

Charley Hoffman's playing partner Ryan Moore. Some great shots into

:53:51.:54:00.

the ninth green already today. That will go all the way off the green,

:54:01.:54:04.

I'm afraid. Garcia, just a light touch and he

:54:05.:54:22.

has it. So Garcia, a clenched of the fist, catches the right edge. Keeps

:54:23.:54:29.

a bogey off the card and keeps himself two clear. Rose with the

:54:30.:54:38.

short birdie putt to come. He was trying to avoid the two shot swing.

:54:39.:54:46.

That putt was huge. He was at the mercy of all the footprints. Look at

:54:47.:54:50.

it, just wiggling around. My goodness. Huge that went in.

:54:51.:55:02.

Justin Rose breathing down Sergio's neck and the chance to get within

:55:03.:55:08.

one. He has played this hole perfectly.

:55:09.:55:21.

Has it. Rose closing in again on his playing partner. To within one.

:55:22.:55:29.

Europeans first and second and three clear of the rest, now. They are

:55:30.:55:37.

friends, they are, today, though, fierce rivals. It is becoming like

:55:38.:55:52.

the Ryder Cup, like Match Play. You see how determined Sergio is. The

:55:53.:55:58.

walks between tees and greens. Excruciating. Casey has to play this

:55:59.:56:00.

just right. You know they aren't going to be out

:56:01.:56:18.

here for and a half hours or so, but a minute and a half of emotion.

:56:19.:56:26.

These guys have been talking to each other? Are they in a world of their

:56:27.:56:33.

own? They are such good friends, it is hard to know but I personally

:56:34.:56:39.

would not be talking much. Casey for par.

:56:40.:56:55.

Such a good position going into the back nine, but the shot goes on the

:56:56.:56:59.

11th. Back to 3-under. That is pure magic by Rickie Fowler.

:57:00.:57:18.

You can't teach that. You learn that one on your own.

:57:19.:57:24.

Side-by-side, but... Going through their own things, their own emotions

:57:25.:57:33.

in their head. Both can beach here if they hit good tee shots. Anything

:57:34.:57:43.

in the sand will eliminate your chances of getting there in two.

:57:44.:57:54.

We will go to Adam Scott, trying to save par on the tenth. Not a

:57:55.:58:04.

convincing putt. He will slip back to two.

:58:05.:58:12.

Three par-5s left and the tee shots are critical. There is pine straw

:58:13.:58:31.

over there. That is OK. He will be able to reach but I doubt he will

:58:32.:58:37.

get on the green from there. Spieth, who is fast running out of

:58:38.:58:41.

contention, but can he find birdie here? Again, that was not close on

:58:42.:58:48.

the eighth. There was a loud roar from

:58:49.:59:08.

somewhere. Oh, absolutely bombed it. Look at it

:59:09.:59:39.

run away. Sort of uphill for the second half of that drive. He will

:59:40.:59:43.

have no trouble in getting home in two from there. Peter Alliss is

:59:44.:59:49.

back. Exciting stuff, even though it is untidy at times. Nine holes

:59:50.:59:54.

coming up and it all starts on the tenth tee on Sunday afternoon, they

:59:55.:59:57.

said. What about this one,? These little

:59:58.:00:23.

hollows were cut out by Jack Nicholas, who had a hand in

:00:24.:00:27.

designing this part of the golf course. Jon Rahm, it just to give

:00:28.:00:33.

you an idea of how slick it is, it will accelerate as it comes off the

:00:34.:00:39.

bottom of the slope. Has he? Oh, my goodness! Give him another 50 balls

:00:40.:00:47.

and he wouldn't do that! One minute, players are in the heights of gloom,

:00:48.:00:52.

the next minute, total ecstasy. That's like having Christmas on

:00:53.:01:01.

fourth July. You don't expect, you hope to get down in two, please

:01:02.:01:04.

don't take four, and it goes in. Going through 84 different emotions,

:01:05.:01:19.

there. Look at him. Oh! 22-year-old young Spaniard. We go to the ninth,

:01:20.:01:26.

Charley Hoffman. He will be delighted to have made a

:01:27.:01:31.

par. Casey at the 12th. Looks like a

:01:32.:01:52.

9-iron. He does strike the ball beautifully when he is in full flow.

:01:53.:02:03.

Good one. Dropped a shot at the last hole, but a couple of par fives

:02:04.:02:08.

coming up. Setting up for a little drawer shot down the ninth, Rickie.

:02:09.:02:16.

A lot of hang time, and also gives the ball a run out a little bit.

:02:17.:02:23.

Landing on the little plateau, not scooping down as far as it often

:02:24.:02:24.

does, but OK. McGirt playing with Rahm. This was

:02:25.:02:36.

his fourth shot. That is not far away.

:02:37.:02:40.

What did I tell you?! They're making a mockery of the game, deciding not

:02:41.:02:48.

to putt at the 13th, and why not?! HAZEL IRVINE: Martin Kaymer gloves

:02:49.:03:06.

the Masters today after a round of 68, and he is heading for his best

:03:07.:03:11.

finish ever here, never cracking the top 30, currently in a tie the 16.

:03:12.:03:17.

Look at his run from nine to 13. That is how you face down Amen

:03:18.:03:19.

Corner, let's here from him. The tenth appearance at Augusta, and

:03:20.:03:29.

the first time you have broken 70, any particular reason why you have

:03:30.:03:34.

got the hang of it now? The second round, I played really, really well.

:03:35.:03:38.

And today was one of those things, the front nine didn't go my way. I

:03:39.:03:43.

needed to stay patient. Some shots were a tiny bit of, and it was

:03:44.:03:47.

difficult to make up and downs on the back nine. It went my way and,

:03:48.:03:51.

all of a sudden, you collect birdies. The back nine is the golf

:03:52.:03:56.

course where you can get it and score.

:03:57.:03:58.

Give us an idea of what you think might happen with the guys at the

:03:59.:04:02.

top of the leaderboard on the back nine today, and how aggressive they

:04:03.:04:05.

can be. The pins are very approachable. They are in decent

:04:06.:04:09.

positions. The only tough one is 14. Even their Mac, you can use the back

:04:10.:04:16.

stock, everything funnels down. You can shoot 4-under or 5-under par, it

:04:17.:04:20.

is just a matter of how brave you are mentally. If you are leading, or

:04:21.:04:26.

if you are a few shots behind in a major Championship, it's always the

:04:27.:04:31.

nerves that play a big role. If you want to win it, you have to be brave

:04:32.:04:35.

enough to go for it. A European winner, perhaps? We hope

:04:36.:04:38.

so, yes. Thank you for your time.

:04:39.:04:44.

COMMENTATOR: Two time major winner, Martin Kaymer. This could finish

:04:45.:04:56.

close. You are unsupported. Banks left and right. A little unlucky,

:04:57.:05:03.

but not a bad leave. Wanted to chase, really. He took anion.

:05:04.:05:05.

Landing soft. Chipping up the slope of the green,

:05:06.:05:17.

it is an inviting little chip. Casey has hardly missed a shot, holing

:05:18.:05:21.

some delicious putts on the front nine. Element you saw what happened

:05:22.:05:32.

with Kaymer, he had 4-5 birdies in a row, a round of 68. This is a fairly

:05:33.:05:38.

straight putt. So much depends on the speed of the putt. Casey's going

:05:39.:05:46.

to pop this in, and with a birdie at the next, he could frighten them a

:05:47.:05:48.

bit. Never running at it, always a little

:05:49.:05:56.

tentative, but that's a three. He's got to squeeze an eagle from

:05:57.:06:11.

somewhere. Fowler, you can see what faces Rickie Fowler, pinned on the

:06:12.:06:20.

front, a 3-step green. Come up short and the ball comes back to you.

:06:21.:06:21.

Oh... The margins are small, but that was

:06:22.:06:31.

6-7 yards shorter than it ought to have been. Big Augusta wind. The

:06:32.:06:44.

Augusta wind, oh! No one said it would be easy.

:06:45.:06:56.

I'm waiting for it to Hubble and bubble and start really boiling like

:06:57.:07:07.

a golfing cauldron. Do you think it is going to happen? I hope so.

:07:08.:07:14.

Perfect angle to get to the flag today for Ryan Moore, 162 yards

:07:15.:07:18.

left. You have got to feed it in from the

:07:19.:07:24.

right. Justin Rose, a little pitch up at

:07:25.:07:30.

the 8th. The flag is ten paces on and five

:07:31.:08:02.

from the right. Not an awful lot of room. Just float it up. A hard

:08:03.:08:06.

bounce and no check. Funny bounce there. A little high

:08:07.:08:23.

point there. You have two flip it up and get it to stop quickly. Howells

:08:24.:08:32.

Rickie going to play this? Let it chase up the little slope, you must

:08:33.:08:39.

not leave it short again. Just far enough. Just like Charley Hoffman. A

:08:40.:08:50.

straight putt for his par. Westwood at the 11th. This for a three.

:08:51.:09:00.

Looking good. Oh... So near, so near. This is

:09:01.:09:16.

interesting. I thought he would chip this. A 3-wood runner, aiming down

:09:17.:09:18.

the right. Maybe didn't have a very good lie.

:09:19.:09:29.

Sometimes it can settle down, otherwise he would definitely have

:09:30.:09:33.

chipped it. By his standards, that was very clumsy, very heavy-handed.

:09:34.:09:42.

Can't afford mistakes. But a good putt. Look at Spieth, I think he hit

:09:43.:09:53.

it with the shadow of the putter. It is getting closer, getting closer,

:09:54.:09:57.

getting closer... Would you believe it? Great putt there. Great judgment

:09:58.:10:01.

down the hill. Remember, Tiger opened up here, 40.

:10:02.:10:04.

So much can happen. Schwartzel, second to the 11th. If

:10:05.:10:27.

his tee shot was down there, it was a massive tee shot. A good angle,

:10:28.:10:31.

this, if you drive down the left side, because you hit across the

:10:32.:10:36.

water, parallel with it. Fowler up and in. A battling four at the 9th,

:10:37.:10:42.

out in 36. Now, Justin Rose after that heavy

:10:43.:10:47.

sanded pitch up. This four. Yes. Now, have at Westy, Sergio. Birdies

:10:48.:11:25.

at six, seven and eight four Rose. Only just made it. It looked like it

:11:26.:11:29.

would tail off to the right and just fell in. As long as it reaches the

:11:30.:11:37.

bottom. That was a very, very good four. Sergio putting along a similar

:11:38.:11:45.

line. He had a sneak preview. A little more across the slope than

:11:46.:11:50.

down it. The left edge with a bit of authority, or just outside the left

:11:51.:11:57.

edge if you are going to go for the tickler.

:11:58.:12:05.

We will have two weight until the end of the row to see what he played

:12:06.:12:21.

the 3-wood shot from there. What the gallery, tiptoeing, in she

:12:22.:12:44.

goes. Is that the shot that wins the day, Ken? We will have to wait a

:12:45.:12:52.

couple of hours to see. Rose and Garcia now three ahead of the pack.

:12:53.:13:04.

Rory McIlroy pitches it onto the plateau, his third at the 13th.

:13:05.:13:17.

Beautifully judged. He must be disappointed, Peter. Yeah, another

:13:18.:13:29.

year has gone by and he's not done it. Casey drives, could go straight

:13:30.:13:37.

on into the woods. He's turned the corner, with a nice bounce. Just off

:13:38.:13:44.

the fairway. Tricky one. Westwood, 12th tee.

:13:45.:13:54.

That could be awkward. He might just get away with it.

:13:55.:14:08.

Casey, big tee-shot, coming out of the light cut of rough, they call it

:14:09.:14:12.

here the second cut of rough. You have got to favour the left of

:14:13.:14:18.

the pin. Well done, Paul. For where the flag was yesterday, it

:14:19.:14:29.

wouldn't take much more, no. Rose at the 9th, drifting off to the

:14:30.:14:36.

right a bit. OK. Popular putters at the moment, the

:14:37.:15:16.

spider putter. Into the cup. He has birdied the last few holes.

:15:17.:15:24.

He's picked his tee up pretty quick, like most of his tee shots, Peter.

:15:25.:15:48.

Yeah, good drive, straight down the hill.

:15:49.:15:59.

Perfect angle to get at this tenth pin. Charley, oh...

:16:00.:16:12.

A couple of feet ago, you might have thought that would catch the left

:16:13.:16:19.

edge. To over for his round, minus two. Six behind. Mickelson. APPLAUSE

:16:20.:16:28.

Winding up with a 72, steady but nothing sensational.

:16:29.:16:43.

You can see how far left he is aiming, just over a yard left. Is it

:16:44.:16:49.

enough? I'm sure it is. This to go to 3-under. And he does.

:16:50.:16:55.

Having a very good masters. He can certainly do it on the par

:16:56.:17:18.

fives relatively easily. They do offer chances. Rickie Fowler on the

:17:19.:17:22.

tenth tee. Every draw shot, he has gone with a 3-wood. Little easier to

:17:23.:17:28.

shake the ball from right to left with a 3-wood. And that is perfect.

:17:29.:17:39.

-- shape the ball from right to left.

:17:40.:17:40.

HAZEL IRVINE: The first European pairing to lead the Masters into the

:17:41.:17:46.

final round, Ryder Cup team-mate, Rose and Garcia locked at 6-under

:17:47.:17:49.

par two hours ago. And it was Sergio that struck first and fast. His iron

:17:50.:17:56.

play sharp from the off as it has been so often. This is his second

:17:57.:17:59.

from the first. From there, and opening birdie. 7-under. The

:18:00.:18:06.

37-year-old Spaniard in his 74th career major over the last 21 years

:18:07.:18:10.

put further daylight between himself and the Olympic champion, Rose.

:18:11.:18:18.

Another short picked up. He was three in front when Rose made a

:18:19.:18:24.

bogey. Rose struck back at the 6th, and with Sergio Brock in the trees

:18:25.:18:28.

at the 7th, Rose took his chance. This is his second to the green.

:18:29.:18:35.

Justin came so close to winning the green jacket two years ago applying

:18:36.:18:39.

the pressure on the Spaniard, because that would be back-to-back

:18:40.:18:43.

birdies, to get back within one shot of Sergio at 7-under par. Such a

:18:44.:18:52.

strong mindset. And 36-year-old Rose would make it three in a row, birdie

:18:53.:18:59.

at the long par-5, 8-under. Sergio missed his birdie at ten, again

:19:00.:19:03.

locked together, just as they started two hours ago.

:19:04.:19:14.

COMMENTATOR: Terrific stuff. Ricky with a perfect tee-shot. He has hung

:19:15.:19:26.

it right a idyll. That is a great position, it will gather right up to

:19:27.:19:34.

the hole side. Go on. -- hung it right a little.

:19:35.:19:39.

He's left himself a curly putt, but a decent chance.

:19:40.:19:46.

Justin Rose at the 9th, second shot. Flat lie.

:19:47.:19:56.

Dangerous second shot. Looks easy enough, flag on the front of the

:19:57.:20:03.

ring, but if you are short, they come back down the hill. If you are

:20:04.:20:10.

too file, they stay. A monstrously difficult putt to judge. It has

:20:11.:20:15.

stuck. A huge tee shot from Garcia, nearly

:20:16.:20:28.

down on the flat. Putting the pressure on Justin Rose. You have

:20:29.:20:34.

got to pitch this at least by the flag. Anything short of that and it

:20:35.:20:38.

digs in, you can see the bluff at the front of the green and it will

:20:39.:20:43.

come back to you. Not spinning too much, a slightly lower flight. 118

:20:44.:20:44.

left. That's it. That's magic. So I'm

:20:45.:20:59.

lucky it doesn't come back more than that. A little bit unlucky, Ken.

:21:00.:21:04.

Westwood at the 12th. Remember, he was on the edge of the

:21:05.:21:17.

bunker at the back of the green. Too heavy-handed, but in she goes. Saves

:21:18.:21:24.

the day. The wide fairway, will it hold on?

:21:25.:21:54.

It probably will. Driving down the left is slightly easier than driving

:21:55.:21:59.

down the right to that left pin. Schwartzel's tee shot at the 12th.

:22:00.:22:04.

He is 4-under now. That's good. Casey to get to 5-under. This for

:22:05.:22:30.

illegal. It will tiptoe down the slope. I think he kind of likes

:22:31.:22:33.

this. I don't think he could have hit that

:22:34.:22:47.

any softer, do you? 5-6 yards past, a shake of the head.

:22:48.:23:01.

This takes a bit of pitching. He's got it, you know... How did that

:23:02.:23:06.

stay out? Jeepers! It just seemed to be curling

:23:07.:23:18.

perfectly. Look where it has finished, to the right of the hole

:23:19.:23:24.

way he was putting from. Casey on the fifth. This for a birdie.

:23:25.:23:30.

On the 13th, and he has parted so beautifully from that range. Two

:23:31.:23:41.

shots onto the green, and three more to get down. Only a par. What about

:23:42.:23:50.

this one, Ken? Watch the line. 25 feet long, but putting it to the

:23:51.:24:01.

left. Nicely judged. Just tiptoes along, doesn't make any

:24:02.:24:12.

silly errors, Justin Rose. He gives nothing away. A pro-'s pro. It looks

:24:13.:24:23.

like Matt Kuchar, to wander, second shot to the 14th.

:24:24.:24:28.

He's like a cash machine, old Matt Kuchar. Every week, gets a nice fat

:24:29.:24:40.

cheque with shots like this. This is why he gets a good paycheque every

:24:41.:24:42.

week. Goes to 3-under. Now a chance format or here. Sorry,

:24:43.:24:52.

Garcia. This would make a statement. Too

:24:53.:25:04.

wide. You can have an excuse for missing

:25:05.:25:16.

that, devilishly difficult down there. It really is. Two fours.

:25:17.:25:30.

It looks like they are both going to have the same score on the front

:25:31.:25:36.

nine, but you feel like Rose is slightly more on the up. Sergio and

:25:37.:25:38.

edging to keep on an even keel. He's obviously a little concerned

:25:39.:25:59.

about this putt. It's a bit further than I thought. It's maybe a good

:26:00.:26:03.

yard, may be a bit less. Well done. Interesting grip. You

:26:04.:26:23.

could play the flute with that, put your fingers on, blow and you have

:26:24.:26:50.

got a June. -- a tune. Two fours and on they go. 8-under par. Both out in

:26:51.:26:58.

34, but Sergio got the fast start. Rose got the fast finish on the back

:26:59.:26:59.

nine. Very nice. One or two decent walks,

:27:00.:27:21.

the tenth to the 11th just gives you a bit of thinking time.

:27:22.:27:30.

Bit of a walk to the tenth. It used to be the first. Drive over the top

:27:31.:27:38.

of the hill into the wide, blue yonder. Ken's been out and about,

:27:39.:27:46.

showing us how he leave this course is. You would be surprised.

:27:47.:27:50.

I can't the number of times I have been asked about the slopes at

:27:51.:27:56.

Augusta. Number nine, it is a 100 foot drop to the putting surface. I

:27:57.:28:02.

am in the driving area, and I hope this demonstration will give you an

:28:03.:28:08.

idea how steep the slopes. One, two, three electors will they run down?,

:28:09.:28:13.

on, boys. I hope this gives you an idea of the steepness of the slopes.

:28:14.:28:17.

Some are really deep. Come on, boys. Keep coming. Some really steep

:28:18.:28:23.

gradients, not only on the fairways, but on the greens. Well done. That's

:28:24.:28:29.

absolutely spot on. Some of them are mighty steep, viz slopes. -- these

:28:30.:28:33.

slopes. Ken, Ken, you weave your magic

:28:34.:28:42.

words. Justin Rose, can he weave a magic drive? To the right. Can he

:28:43.:28:53.

get a bit of draw? 3-wood. Has he got it to turn? Anxious, anxious,

:28:54.:29:00.

anxious... Off the fairway, sticking there. Leaving him a long second.

:29:01.:29:08.

Sergio also with a 3-wood. A little bit of twist and turn. Twist and

:29:09.:29:16.

shout, turn it and chase it down that hill.

:29:17.:29:25.

He has pushed it, has he? If you push it, you miss the downslope.

:29:26.:29:37.

This is completely the wrong angle to get to the flag from. On top of

:29:38.:29:41.

the hill, miles away. That is a massive comparison as to

:29:42.:29:50.

how they played this second nine. Welcome back, Paul Azinger. Thank

:29:51.:30:12.

you, Peter. Matt Kuchar. It is a gimme. No other place in the world

:30:13.:30:18.

when that walk can affect you from nine green to Twenty20. I wish we

:30:19.:30:29.

had heart monitors on the player. -- to tee ten. That is in the lap of

:30:30.:30:42.

the gods. Still charging down the hill, through the spectators. I

:30:43.:30:51.

think it has come to rest by the fellow with the red shirt.

:30:52.:31:00.

He can drum up magic with his power, Thomas Pieters. Hundred and 78 yard

:31:01.:31:08.

second shot. It is a real beauty. That to get to 5-under. A big

:31:09.:31:20.

difference in the feeling the chaser has versus the guys out front. They

:31:21.:31:28.

have to control their nerves and mind. You have chances, particularly

:31:29.:31:37.

the two par-5s, but they are not the easiest. They are spectacular holes.

:31:38.:31:43.

They are not without risk. You've got to get by ten, 11 and 12 and

:31:44.:31:49.

then the scoring can begin. He has been enormously lucky, Fowler. He

:31:50.:31:53.

has gone right through the crowd. I don't know how he found this spot.

:31:54.:31:59.

There must be some relatives in the crowd, it is amazing. Look at this.

:32:00.:32:11.

Oh, well, I suppose it would have been asking too much if it had

:32:12.:32:13.

stopped and he putted it. Got to fly through otherwise the

:32:14.:32:31.

ball will come back off the green. Get it to feed. Careful now. That is

:32:32.:32:37.

a big mistake, big mistake by Paul Casey. So nearly a super shot and

:32:38.:32:48.

now you are faced with... So difficult to get down in two from

:32:49.:32:55.

there. That is the view from behind the tenth green. Final per stuck on

:32:56.:32:59.

the top of the hill. They did not get the bounce down the hill Ken

:33:00.:33:04.

Brown were showing earlier. A long way back. It looks a relatively

:33:05.:33:06.

small target from here. A long iron. Certainly taking time. A lot of

:33:07.:33:24.

concentration. Sergio is giving it his maximum effort in all

:33:25.:33:27.

departments. 225 to the front of the green. 251

:33:28.:33:48.

total. It's all right, got your name on your bag, you are allowed to back

:33:49.:33:57.

off. Poor tee shot now makes par more difficult for Sergio useful --

:33:58.:34:01.

Sergio. Rose has the momentum. Got to hit this just right to carry

:34:02.:34:20.

it as far as he needs to. Likely a 4-iron, maybe a five. 251 to the

:34:21.:34:23.

hole. This is two shots in a row he has

:34:24.:34:36.

let go off will stop this is where he hit it the other day. That could

:34:37.:34:41.

be fatal right there. I don't think he is in the bushes. He is stuck in

:34:42.:34:49.

the pine needles, I think. Thomas Pieters after that great shot. This

:34:50.:34:51.

to go to 5-under. Just to hide. -- too high. You think you're green

:34:52.:34:58.

s are fast? Well, it will depend on the lie. I

:34:59.:35:27.

bet he would not trade with Sergio for anything. He has a lot of

:35:28.:35:34.

options. A simple pitch back up the hill. I say simple, but in these

:35:35.:35:38.

situations, really, nothing is simple. Sergio, you are right, in

:35:39.:35:45.

the straw, but isn't that a well-placed tree? Good grief. Almost

:35:46.:35:58.

right behind it. Pieters' ball, it has gone ten feet past. Oh, well

:35:59.:36:04.

holed. That is a very good putt. My word. Old stone face. Or, young

:36:05.:36:11.

stone face. Just over the green at 11, Rickie

:36:12.:36:20.

Fowler's third. It goes and goes. I believe he made

:36:21.:36:39.

the wrong choice for shot selection. He probably needed to one hop that.

:36:40.:36:54.

A little bit too high and hard. I do not think it will come round. No,

:36:55.:37:05.

that has left him a putt and a half. Wonders why it has not moved. Here

:37:06.:37:08.

is Rory. Boy, that was a long way down. Just

:37:09.:37:41.

an 8-iron. Sergio, I say it is a well-placed tree because it will

:37:42.:37:46.

break a great deal to his left. At this point he does not want to make

:37:47.:37:51.

double bogey. If he makes par, it will feel like birdie.

:37:52.:38:00.

I thought he was going to capitalise on the lie. He didn't.

:38:01.:38:19.

He has to make sure he misses the tree, but if he misses it on the low

:38:20.:38:28.

side, the ball can easily run off the front of the green. Second

:38:29.:38:34.

round, remember what he did, he was better placed. The wind was against

:38:35.:38:40.

him and he blasted it with a fair way wood, pushed it right, into the

:38:41.:38:44.

trees, and it suddenly emerged. There is the tree, on the left. That

:38:45.:38:57.

he is behind today. If he gets it as decent as this, he will be

:38:58.:39:05.

delighted, but I don't think he can. I think he will be hard pressed to

:39:06.:39:20.

get it on the green. Will it hold? It is about as good as he could do

:39:21.:39:22.

from there, I feel. Encouragement for Justin Rose.

:39:23.:39:43.

Normally, this is a simple pitch up. He has everything going pretty well

:39:44.:39:51.

in his favour. Could get a bit of check on it, aim it at the

:39:52.:39:55.

right-hand side, get it within five, feet. He says he has struggled

:39:56.:40:04.

around the greens this week. That is not great, but, in an OK spot. You

:40:05.:40:14.

are a hard task master. That was not too bad, surely. You are a hard man.

:40:15.:40:23.

Schwartzel, for eagle, two putts for a birdie, more like. 25 yards away.

:40:24.:40:30.

Get to the top of the hill and you can bet your bottom dollar it goes

:40:31.:40:32.

past. Well judged. He is a beautiful player. He and

:40:33.:40:49.

Oosthuizen. South Africa have some fine players. Beautiful swingers of

:40:50.:40:53.

the club at the moment, compared to some of the ones who are more

:40:54.:40:57.

consistent, Spieth for an example. More elegant looking players.

:40:58.:41:04.

It is not as easy as all that, I can assure you.

:41:05.:41:38.

Peter, I feel like this is a point in time. You can tell Sergio is

:41:39.:41:47.

leaking oil. B has a long putt for par. This is where the player and

:41:48.:41:51.

caddy relationship pays dividends. It is asking a lot to hole this. It

:41:52.:42:10.

is a long putt. Three, four feet of swing from the left. Good effort.

:42:11.:42:16.

Dropped shot. It was a poor second and he has done well really, to drop

:42:17.:42:20.

one shot. A chance for Justin Rose. First

:42:21.:42:41.

bogey in 19 holes. That is saying something around here.

:42:42.:42:48.

Justin Rose has left himself in the perfect spot to clean up and make

:42:49.:42:56.

par. This would be to take the lead, if he can hole this.

:42:57.:43:08.

He has been rock-steady all day on these. He made that look easy.

:43:09.:43:18.

They both struggled, neither hit very good tee shots. Rose gets his

:43:19.:43:24.

four and is now one ahead. Playing 155 yards, 12th hole.

:43:25.:43:35.

Bunker. Spieth started out with high hopes.

:43:36.:44:00.

Now one under. Has he done better than last year? I inky hows, oh,

:44:01.:44:07.

only just... No, he has not. This is his bete noire, whatever that means.

:44:08.:44:12.

Dear, oh dear. Look what he did last year. Sun was

:44:13.:44:44.

shining, everything going beautifully, shots ahead. He hit it

:44:45.:44:51.

a bit heavy. Not a particularly good strike. Almost identical shot. For

:44:52.:44:58.

some reason, he had his caddy march back 50, 60 yards, thinking they

:44:59.:45:03.

were going to play it from a better position and, by golly, he did it

:45:04.:45:11.

again. Worse, he took a huge did it. Hardly reached halfway across the

:45:12.:45:16.

pond. That was the next one. He put one in the water and up here. He

:45:17.:45:23.

made a right Horlicks of it. He did fight back well. It is confusing

:45:24.:45:30.

where we look at yesteryear, yesterday, for no particular reason.

:45:31.:45:37.

That is in. Schwartzel gets four. He is creeping along nicely.

:45:38.:45:53.

As I alluded to on ten green, I feel it is important now for the player

:45:54.:46:03.

and caddy relationship to develop now with Sergio. Let's watched this

:46:04.:46:09.

first, Thomas Pieters. -- watch. Just off the fairway. He

:46:10.:46:17.

has done it absolutely perfectly. That is a great shot. He is some

:46:18.:46:24.

kind of player. He made double bogeys in that heavy wind.

:46:25.:46:30.

Now, Sergio. Justin Rose, he has hit a good tee shot. Sergio has just

:46:31.:46:38.

dropped a shot. Nothing too untoward happening. He needs a good tee shot.

:46:39.:46:47.

Needs to get a four here at worse. I mean great players do not need

:46:48.:46:51.

lessons, often times they just need reminders. That has gone off into

:46:52.:46:55.

the trees and Sergio in trouble again at he level. Needs to settle

:46:56.:46:57.

down. He likes it. That is why. Friendly

:46:58.:47:31.

position, and that can go in. He has got it! LAUGHTER.

:47:32.:47:36.

Well, well. Well, well, well. The first bit of excitement they

:47:37.:48:15.

have had for a while. Watch this. It would not have happened with a flat

:48:16.:48:21.

green. He missed the hole by a few yards on the right, but it was a

:48:22.:48:26.

good strike. He knew the ridge ran through the middle of the green and

:48:27.:48:30.

if he got the right spot he could end up close. It was never nearer

:48:31.:48:35.

than that and suddenly, it looked odds here. It just kept going

:48:36.:48:38.

beautifully and in. Moments like that are few and far

:48:39.:48:53.

between and to be cherished. Matt Kuchar enjoying it immensely. The

:48:54.:49:01.

putter is betraying Rickie, the last couple of holes. Back-to-back bogeys

:49:02.:49:05.

for Rickie. I wonder how many ones he has had. I

:49:06.:49:25.

don't think any has been sweeter than this.

:49:26.:49:40.

He is going to sign the golf ball. He is not going to give it away, is

:49:41.:49:48.

he, Peter? He is going to give it to someone. Yes. That is fabulous.

:49:49.:50:09.

You know before you hit it, if you can get it up on the right side. He

:50:10.:50:30.

got it just right. What a glorious moment. He is only three back.

:50:31.:50:42.

Remember Schwartzel, finished with four birdies. You never know. You

:50:43.:50:48.

never ever really know. HAZEL IRVINE: You don't. Suddenly

:50:49.:50:56.

Matt Kuchar it is in contention. 5-under for bidet, three behind.

:50:57.:51:04.

There he is in a tie with Pieters. Schwartzel is making his move. It is

:51:05.:51:08.

hotting up around Amen Corner, as it always does.

:51:09.:51:40.

Thomas Pieters, also to get to 5-under and a good, aggressive

:51:41.:51:48.

stroke. Dead centre. Still has 15 to play and 16, where the ball funnels

:51:49.:51:54.

and the ball will funnel close to the hole at 18. A lot of chances

:51:55.:52:03.

left for these guys to make a move. Where has he gone? Short, left?

:52:04.:52:09.

Obviously not need the hole. That is not good. I don't know what happened

:52:10.:52:18.

there. Sergio is in trouble at the top of

:52:19.:52:23.

the hill. They are in the trees. What do you do hear? He has room to

:52:24.:52:32.

squirt it around. Has he? Yes, he has. The best he could do, if he

:52:33.:52:41.

pulls off a small miracle, is to get it in the front right corner towards

:52:42.:52:49.

the green. Maybe 20, 30 yards short. Or if lucky to run it close to the

:52:50.:52:56.

front. But not the place to be. This is a big decision he is making. He

:52:57.:53:02.

has to decide whatever he does is worth the risk. There are mounts to

:53:03.:53:06.

the right and short of the green and if he can get the ball to run along

:53:07.:53:13.

the left side of those, but he cannot put it in the water. You

:53:14.:53:17.

cannot miss left. Get it passed the tree. Keep it out of the water and

:53:18.:53:22.

you can still make par. He has to make sure he keeps the

:53:23.:53:43.

face open. If it turns over, he could play at left into the water.

:53:44.:53:50.

The problem with the water, if you put it in, you have to go to the

:53:51.:53:55.

drop area and pitch back over the top of it. He has to get it past the

:53:56.:53:57.

tree to the right of the pond. There are the mounds we were talking

:53:58.:54:11.

about. Yes, very well played. About all he could hope for.

:54:12.:54:27.

Justin has got to stop thinking, you lucky rascal. They met at the

:54:28.:54:39.

bunker. Right-hand edge of the bunker behind the green on the

:54:40.:54:42.

right, if I can hit it straight there... The flag on the 12th is not

:54:43.:54:49.

a bad line. Need good nerves. On line. Beautiful shot. Absolute

:54:50.:55:10.

gem. That is like a stamp right on

:55:11.:55:14.

Sergio's head. I am not going away. Rory for birdie at 16. Oh, two in a

:55:15.:55:55.

row. Not bad. And there is a happy lad.

:55:56.:56:08.

Oh, finishes in style, well done, Fred. Very nice playing.

:56:09.:56:29.

This is blazing fast. Might go down all the way across the green. It is

:56:30.:56:47.

gone. Nothing more than a wedge. It will cost him big time. Expensive.

:56:48.:56:54.

Can he do it again? Once you get the flavour, you know... Softly. Softly.

:56:55.:57:06.

He likes it. The magic's gone. Flash in the pan. How do you fancy that

:57:07.:57:18.

chilli back. You got carried away by the ad you Laois and of the

:57:19.:57:19.

multitude. -- -- you got carried away with the

:57:20.:57:23.

adulation. This is a hard shot. Then make it

:57:24.:57:38.

look so easy but it is a hard shot. Sergio leaving the flag. Two putts

:57:39.:58:18.

from here would be... Would he feel relieved to get down in two from

:58:19.:58:19.

here. Steady, steady. Slowly it is starting to come undone

:58:20.:58:35.

for Sergio and you have to believe a couple of missed short putts on the

:58:36.:58:41.

first line may be shook him up a little bit. -- first nine.

:58:42.:58:50.

Sergio jumped up to a quick lead. Justin caught him with three birdies

:58:51.:58:53.

in a row on the front. ANDREW COTTER: Casey's third shot.

:58:54.:59:25.

Back up the slope. And across. That is pretty well done. A birdie to get

:59:26.:59:31.

to 3-under. The 18th and Kevin Chappell. A nice

:59:32.:00:02.

finishing 68 for 3-under. Just sneaks inside the top ten. Very

:00:03.:00:04.

nice. Just heard a clip ASBO it caught a

:00:05.:00:31.

tree. And into the water it goes. -- as though it caught a tree. Elegant,

:00:32.:00:38.

perfect posture from Thomas Pieters. Massive tee-shot down the 15th.

:00:39.:00:46.

Absolutely huge drive. They are buzzing in the stands. Some grip on

:00:47.:00:52.

that. A middle to short iron, par-5, the breeze helping. His first outing

:00:53.:01:01.

at Augusta. Scott with a beautiful second shot on the 14th.

:01:02.:01:05.

Garcia for his par. There will be a big roar if this goes in. No.

:01:06.:01:22.

To be fair, that wasn't even close. Maybe the shadows catching him out.

:01:23.:01:34.

Just beginning to get away from him. He went so long without a bogey, 19

:01:35.:01:39.

holes, then two in a row. Suddenly, Ken, this for a three shot

:01:40.:01:44.

lead. The brakes are easy to see, but it

:01:45.:02:12.

is tricky on the back of the 11th to see how much they are going to

:02:13.:02:13.

break. A little isolated on this green, the

:02:14.:02:23.

crowds are a long way away, they can't see the hole. They are waiting

:02:24.:02:27.

for the ball to drop. The patrons behind the 12th.

:02:28.:02:42.

You always take a four at the 10th and 11th. Back to Kutcher, needs a

:02:43.:02:49.

miracle shot here on the 17th. Onto the putting surface. Beautiful

:02:50.:03:02.

contact. Had to get there. Trying to set a target.

:03:03.:03:11.

Pieters, this would put the cat amongst the pigeons. It is not going

:03:12.:03:19.

to turn that much, is it? He will try.

:03:20.:03:25.

Pieters has birdied the 12th, 13th, 14th, and this looks like a birdie

:03:26.:03:33.

at the 15th. Let's have a look at Garcia, then, for his bogey on the

:03:34.:03:35.

11th. In it goes. He's down to 6-under,

:03:36.:03:44.

suddenly. Two behind his playing partner. Then of course, there's

:03:45.:03:48.

Thomas Pieters, a new player in the mix.

:03:49.:03:58.

That was a fantastic tee shot again at the 15th. Getting the ball to

:03:59.:04:04.

grip. There it is, the balcony stalls are full. Magnificent.

:04:05.:04:17.

Lifting a little right. Plenty of oomph on it. On the 15th, going over

:04:18.:04:47.

the water, ideally you want to get onto the fairway. 155 yards to that

:04:48.:04:57.

right pin position. We know there is hardly any wind, but you can just

:04:58.:05:04.

see the flag moving a little bit. Trust that there is not too much up

:05:05.:05:10.

there. 9-iron for Rose, the leader of the Masters.

:05:11.:05:28.

It goes. Aiming over the bunker there, aiming away from the flag. If

:05:29.:05:35.

you go short, you are in the sand. Feeling a little bit cagey. Kutcher

:05:36.:05:38.

to save par. A birdie at the last would be

:05:39.:05:51.

interesting -- Kuchar. Not as interesting as the 16th, mind. What

:05:52.:05:53.

a run. The thing about the 12 is, you

:05:54.:06:04.

either find the green, or you are in some sort of trouble. There's not

:06:05.:06:05.

much in between. Is he bowled or does he take the

:06:06.:06:14.

cautionary route over the centre of that bunker? Fabulous, isn't it,

:06:15.:06:18.

absolutely stunning. Right, it is time to take a deep

:06:19.:06:27.

breath, Sergio. Play your best hand. Creeps over the bunker, safe. Not

:06:28.:06:54.

chasing the pins yet. Two behind. A dangerous game to play at Augusta,

:06:55.:07:00.

as we go to Fowler for his four on the 13th.

:07:01.:07:11.

That stops the rot. He will hope for more further down the back nine.

:07:12.:07:17.

Pieters a contender now. He's a little anxious. He's pulled

:07:18.:07:30.

it a little. Oh... 107 to nine yards, and about eight yards right

:07:31.:07:37.

up flag. It just depends how it lies in the bunker. Over the Hogan Bridge

:07:38.:07:45.

they go to this way sis of calm away from all the spectators. The final

:07:46.:07:50.

group on the final day and Garcia two behind Rose. -- this always is.

:07:51.:08:02.

I am not sure if his mum is here or at home watching.

:08:03.:08:07.

He has got to get the right trajectory to get it to land. Oh...

:08:08.:08:27.

And he was gone. Just coming out of rough comedy had to do something

:08:28.:08:35.

special with it he took the risk and it didn't pay off. Kuchar, a flat

:08:36.:08:40.

swing to the last hole. Suddenly the American flag bearer,

:08:41.:08:52.

Kuchar. They applaud, you thought it was good. And by a couple of yards,

:08:53.:08:54.

it is. First to putt, Garcia. A sliver --

:08:55.:09:01.

sliver of green. Particularly well judged. He knew as

:09:02.:09:24.

he struck it that it wasn't quite firm enough. A mystical silence on

:09:25.:09:31.

this green. No patrons around you. Schwartzel, drop shot on the 14th.

:09:32.:09:44.

Beautiful drive here. A bit tight to the trees down the left. You can

:09:45.:09:52.

take aim at the right half of the green. Two puts -- putts for birdie.

:09:53.:10:03.

I thought that was going to hold its line. Not much break on this, the

:10:04.:10:16.

12th. And he thought he had a chance.

:10:17.:10:31.

If you come up short, you trickle down the bank to the water. Pieters

:10:32.:10:40.

is aiming up the slope here. He will want this to finish just about where

:10:41.:10:45.

Tiger Woods chipped up to in 2005. Is it plugged down there?

:10:46.:10:52.

A good leave. Virtually straight from there. You don't want to miss

:10:53.:11:08.

it on the right. Straight up the hill.

:11:09.:11:17.

You can't afford a dropped shot on this marvellous run. Back to the

:11:18.:11:22.

12th and Garcia, just a tap in. Kuchar come off the upside, hung

:11:23.:11:58.

back on his back foot. Didn't quite get through it.

:11:59.:12:06.

HAZEL IRVINE: Justin Rose, a two shot lead. Thomas Pieters is making

:12:07.:12:10.

up good ground, isn't he. Sergio Garcia there. Adam Scott in the

:12:11.:12:14.

drink at the 15th. And Paul Casey, 3-under through 16. But missing from

:12:15.:12:20.

that first page of the leaderboard is Jon Rahm. And this is why.

:12:21.:12:28.

This is for double bogey at the 18th for the debited from Spain, only 22

:12:29.:12:35.

years of age. And he's pretty upset by that.

:12:36.:12:40.

We will see an awful lot more of this fella. He is a brilliant

:12:41.:12:46.

talent. He's actually managed by Phil Mickelson's brother, Tim, he

:12:47.:12:55.

will be back and winning big things in years to come.

:12:56.:13:06.

COMMENTATOR: Tee shot of Justin Rose on the 13th. Look at that, birdie,

:13:07.:13:09.

birdie, birdie. Hung it out. He has, but he has missed the tongue

:13:10.:13:22.

of rough that comes up, which makes a huge difference on the fairway

:13:23.:13:30.

coming off that pin. Rickie Fowler second shot to the 14th. Further it

:13:31.:13:33.

in from the left. Garcia, beautiful driver. Where is

:13:34.:13:58.

he aiming? I think he is going to try to take it over the trees. He is

:13:59.:14:04.

not a high ball hitter, either. Oh, Sergio.

:14:05.:14:09.

He's going to need a lot of luck here. He said, "Get right a little".

:14:10.:14:21.

He could be in the Queen. No one seems to know where it went. That

:14:22.:14:27.

was a risky shot. Oh, Sergio. Down among the route. He's not in the

:14:28.:14:32.

water, but he's in just as bad a place. That was a risky, risky play.

:14:33.:14:36.

He didn't chase the pin abattoir, but he was chasing ideal position

:14:37.:14:41.

from the tee, didn't make the distance and he has paid the price.

:14:42.:14:50.

Schwartzel if this keeps running down the slope, sit down. Just

:14:51.:14:59.

bumped into a piece of chewing gum. Pretty good. Quiet man, but classy.

:15:00.:15:07.

Pieters for his par. No, no, no. So his run comes to a

:15:08.:15:18.

juddering halt. Rose is getting stronger and stronger. Garcia in

:15:19.:15:21.

trouble. Pieters slipping back. His tee shot makes you so cross,

:15:22.:15:31.

because he has such a margin of error down the right. He wanted to

:15:32.:15:35.

turn it into the back left pin on the 16th. Six holes to go, two shots

:15:36.:15:41.

clear and that lead will shortly grow, you fancy.

:15:42.:15:47.

He seems in comptroller at the moment, Rose. There, the ball of

:15:48.:15:57.

Sergio Garcia. Not too many alternatives to drop. Probably with

:15:58.:16:03.

a two club length get out of the bush, but not an inviting place to

:16:04.:16:09.

drop it. There we are. On that line, he can go back as far as he likes.

:16:10.:16:11.

Not too inviting either. Clearly, three options. As Ken says,

:16:12.:16:27.

you can have two club lengths, no nearer the hole. Back, keeping the

:16:28.:16:30.

position in line with the hole, or back to the tee.

:16:31.:16:39.

He thought it might just clunk into the centre of the flag and find the

:16:40.:16:52.

bottom of the cup. A pretty good week for Rory.

:16:53.:16:58.

So Garcia in all sorts of difficulty on the 13th. Rose in a pretty good

:16:59.:17:06.

position from the tee and two shots clear. Kuchar coming to the end of

:17:07.:17:11.

his run. Thomas Pieters dropping that shot on the 16th. And here we

:17:12.:17:17.

are, the deliberations, the options for Garcia.

:17:18.:17:29.

One option has gone, he can't. I think it is the two club lengths.

:17:30.:17:40.

He will look at that first of all. One, too, so he wants to make sure

:17:41.:17:54.

that if he drops it there, he has a backswing. He will drop it within

:17:55.:17:59.

the two club lengths, and it can roll another two club lengths.

:18:00.:18:13.

Oh, this is such an awful spot. All the time he waits, Justin does a

:18:14.:18:26.

couple of sketches. A bold decision made, you might say, from the tee.

:18:27.:18:34.

Pat a little bit foolish, risky. Looking for a decent lie. If it

:18:35.:18:41.

crosses the hazard line, he can have another go. If he does the same

:18:42.:18:44.

again, he will place it. The grid line marks the length of

:18:45.:18:59.

the natural water hazard. He is there in two. Very dangerous now,

:19:00.:19:07.

picking up loose impediments. It is easy to make the ball roll. He could

:19:08.:19:12.

still escape with a five. Schwartzel for a birdie on the 15th.

:19:13.:19:16.

A few people have chipped from there. Calcavecchia on the final

:19:17.:19:41.

hole. Very nicely judged. Always has a ready smile, Kuchar.

:19:42.:19:46.

Rickie Fowler, quick birdie putt. Maybe an understatement.

:19:47.:20:07.

Kuchar finishes out, 67, joint low round of the day, 5-under par for

:20:08.:20:15.

the tournament. The target is set. It probably won't be enough, but you

:20:16.:20:18.

never know. And a hole-in-one. Looks like he is going to sign the

:20:19.:20:23.

golf ball. Plenty of loft on the club. He will

:20:24.:20:34.

have two it about a corner as best he can. See if he can leave himself

:20:35.:20:40.

a nice little yardage. This is his third.

:20:41.:20:49.

That's pretty good. He's had adventurous times on the 13th that

:20:50.:21:01.

this Masters. That second yesterday just coming up short but staying

:21:02.:21:03.

dry. He's fine, good. Well done, Sergio.

:21:04.:21:14.

He's hit a five, a six and a four on it, which isn't particularly good.

:21:15.:21:20.

Justin Rose has birdied it every day so far.

:21:21.:21:29.

Good looking swing. Well, it's safe and dry, but from bus wail of the

:21:30.:21:43.

back, chipping down towards that pin. Slippery fast -- but from the

:21:44.:21:47.

Swale of the back. Rolls it in. It's probably going to

:21:48.:22:05.

be a top ten finish in the end for Rory McIlroy, but a tale of what

:22:06.:22:09.

might have been at Augusta. No Masters, no Grand Slam completed

:22:10.:22:17.

this year. 72, 73, is the one, 60 nine. -- 60 one, 60 nine.

:22:18.:22:25.

You have got to believe he is going to win the grand Slam one of these

:22:26.:22:30.

years. It is the last little piece of the jigsaw, the Masters. Rose

:22:31.:22:35.

just peering through the sinking sun. Garcia will have a little

:22:36.:22:51.

pitch. His fourth shot shortly. HAZEL IRVINE: Here's how it stands.

:22:52.:22:56.

It looks good for Justin Rose, two shots ahead of Sergio Garcia. Matt

:22:57.:23:01.

Kuchar has posted the best round in the clubhouse over. He is the

:23:02.:23:04.

clubhouse lead after that hole-in-one on the 16th. This is his

:23:05.:23:09.

fourth top eight since 2012. In fact, he is getting much closer. He

:23:10.:23:13.

was tied third as well a couple of years ago when Louis and Barbour

:23:14.:23:19.

played the play-off in 2012. Yet to win a major but always there or

:23:20.:23:25.

thereabouts. -- Bubba. Charl Schwartzel the winner here in 2011.

:23:26.:23:33.

Playing 179 yards. He will know where to aim it. Aiming right of the

:23:34.:23:37.

flag. OK. We haven't seen any people hole it

:23:38.:23:50.

from back there for a two. So, Garcia, his fourth shot.

:23:51.:23:57.

You have got to be careful. If you go straight at the flag, you haven't

:23:58.:24:03.

got to be far wrong to find your ball in the creek. You can use the

:24:04.:24:09.

left slope to work the ball in. Right at it with the floater.

:24:10.:24:27.

Nice shot. He's got that for a par. A bit of break on it from the left.

:24:28.:24:38.

You need such mental strength at this time. Pieters's second. The

:24:39.:24:51.

17th. He's flicked it left. Not by too much.

:24:52.:25:05.

Recorded a few months ago, so his birdie attempt here. -- a few

:25:06.:25:10.

moments ago. It looks, when you look at the

:25:11.:25:26.

screen, as visible pin position. It is on a Christian high spot on the

:25:27.:25:31.

green. Awkward from every angle to putt from, virtually.

:25:32.:25:40.

Charles -- Charl, 15 feet left, he's aiming.

:25:41.:26:11.

This is where it is all happening on the 13th, Rose through the back.

:26:12.:26:20.

Putter the option. Has it? It has. And if it has, it's

:26:21.:26:31.

perfect. It's absolutely perfect, I'm telling

:26:32.:26:37.

you, boys and girls. What touch. Coming out of the little

:26:38.:26:53.

hollow is so difficult. Up the little upslope onto an ice rink.

:26:54.:27:04.

There are times when Augusta punishes mental daisy picking.

:27:05.:27:14.

Walking it down, steering it down, deep breaths. It was a beautiful

:27:15.:27:25.

shot. -- staring it down. Again, he will shuffle aside and watch Garcia.

:27:26.:27:31.

The patrons, the pin on the front of the week, they put it there because

:27:32.:27:35.

it gives the best view for the spectators around the parting green.

:27:36.:27:42.

The largest number can see the pin. Soren Kjeldsen struggles up front

:27:43.:27:44.

slope -- around the putting green. For his par on the 16th. OK, not to

:27:45.:27:55.

be the four birdie finish as he found in 2011, but a birdie on the

:27:56.:27:59.

last two. Garcia for his par. He's got it. He's got it. A terrific

:28:00.:28:15.

par. Keeps himself in the race. A Seve par.

:28:16.:28:22.

From this angle, this putt, there isn't much in it. It is easy to over

:28:23.:28:41.

borrow. Left, left... A glass from Rose and

:28:42.:29:02.

the crowd. That was for a three shot lead. So he pars it. Garcia pars it.

:29:03.:29:11.

Still interesting, heading to the 14th. A real opportunity, there,

:29:12.:29:21.

Ken, to stamp on Garcia. It is a tricky one, because he has a big

:29:22.:29:25.

slope of the green. You can see how fast it was from where he played the

:29:26.:29:30.

original one. You sort of feel it has turned up the slope. APPLAUSE

:29:31.:29:42.

Well, that was a turn up. Par from fives. Garcia might kick him too

:29:43.:29:49.

much blame on. Rose still playing very tidy, solid golf, but a two

:29:50.:30:01.

shot lead might have been four. Paul Azinger coming back in, giddy with

:30:02.:30:03.

excitement. I wonder if we can hear from Rory

:30:04.:30:27.

McIlroy. Getting his thoughts in a few moments. We will head back to

:30:28.:30:37.

the 14th tee. A great view, how beautiful this swing years, Justin

:30:38.:30:48.

Rose. Dogleg left, par-4. That is perfect.

:30:49.:30:52.

Thomas Pieters has not enjoyed this hole so far.

:30:53.:31:11.

He will be thinking, only birdie. Try to get to 6-under.

:31:12.:31:20.

We talked about decision-making at the beginning of the day and I feel

:31:21.:31:31.

like Sergio, for whatever reason felt he needed to take a chance on

:31:32.:31:38.

13. To escape with par, giving him momentum, a psychological boost.

:31:39.:31:50.

They seem suitably impressed. Just heading off the fairway.

:31:51.:32:01.

He might be a man reborn. That is the kind of thing that can turn

:32:02.:32:11.

around, getting away with something on the 13th, when your opponent

:32:12.:32:17.

could not find a birdie. Paul Casey made a run. He stalled a bit. And a

:32:18.:32:30.

good finish. 4-under, tied for six. With Rickie Fowler.

:32:31.:32:42.

Hazel: Rory McIlroy, a failed attempt to tie up the career grand

:32:43.:32:53.

slam. Unlucky, I am afraid. Let's hear Rory's thoughts. How good was

:32:54.:33:01.

your round of 69 today? It was pretty good, it was solid, I did not

:33:02.:33:06.

get off to the start I wanted. It was playing tricky. I thought the

:33:07.:33:18.

course was getable. Filed under was a good score. I took advantage of

:33:19.:33:24.

most of the par-5s. I did not put myself in trouble but did not get

:33:25.:33:28.

the momentum I wanted early and it was a battle for 69 and ultimately

:33:29.:33:34.

not give up. On course for your fourth consecutive finish in the top

:33:35.:33:38.

ten. A lot of golfers would be happy with that. It was nice, a good

:33:39.:33:46.

finish. I was proud of how I handled the conditions the first two days.

:33:47.:33:51.

Yesterday I had an opportunity to shoot something in the mid-60s and

:33:52.:33:57.

it left me too far behind when I did not do that. Thanks. Thank you.

:33:58.:34:07.

HAZEL IRVINE: Sergio Garcia has had tree trouble and on the 13th, a wild

:34:08.:34:22.

one. Trying to carve an advantage. It dropped short anti-would have to

:34:23.:34:30.

take a drop out of there. In typical Seve swashbuckling style, unfazed.

:34:31.:34:45.

Wriggle room at the big par-5. Some great short play skills from Sergio.

:34:46.:34:51.

He is renowned for bows. He is fighting hard, the 37-year-old

:34:52.:34:57.

Spaniard, in his 74th major. Running this one down the slope. With Rose

:34:58.:35:02.

threatening a birdie, he knew he had to make this for par. A clutch putt

:35:03.:35:12.

if ever there was one. His chances of a first Masters title and major.

:35:13.:35:19.

He is still fighting and, as Andrew Cotter said, that is a Seve par.

:35:20.:35:27.

ANDREW COTTER: Thomas Pieters needs a birdie.

:35:28.:35:36.

You never know, Andrew. You just never know. A couple of scary holes

:35:37.:36:04.

left for Justin Rose. Rickie Fowler, has got to make some magic happen

:36:05.:36:06.

right now. You can see the slope of the fairway

:36:07.:36:13.

on the 14th. See the trunk of the pine left of

:36:14.:36:56.

the flag, that is the aim. The key here, you have to get the ball deep

:36:57.:37:02.

into this green. There is a false front that runs across almost dead

:37:03.:37:10.

centre of the screen. If you come up short, it comes way back.

:37:11.:37:16.

It is a 9-iron. Anything past the hole is OK. You cannot be short.

:37:17.:37:29.

Cannot get there with that, he said. He felt a little breeze.

:37:30.:37:37.

There is hardly anything out there at all. Five miles per hour at most.

:37:38.:37:42.

But he just felt something. When a good caddy earns his corn,

:37:43.:37:59.

steps in, reassures. Justin Rose ready to go again.

:38:00.:38:16.

Disbelief again from Rose. It was doing it's best for him, though.

:38:17.:38:31.

No real damage done. If that was at the flag it would have been all the

:38:32.:38:41.

way down off the front. Sergio with an opportunity. That is no easy

:38:42.:38:52.

2-putt for Justin Rose. One of the best iron players in the game today.

:38:53.:38:58.

If ever you need a good one, now is the time.

:38:59.:39:08.

It is good. It is very, very good from Sergio Garcia. Getting better

:39:09.:39:24.

and better. Sergio strikes back. Perhaps the escape, on the 13th, was

:39:25.:39:35.

the lift he needed. They must make for Thomas Pieters. No.

:39:36.:39:42.

Misread, too hard. Got nothing right.

:39:43.:39:50.

Nothing going right for Jordan today. He has not hit the ball well.

:39:51.:39:57.

Mis-hits earlier the round really cost him.

:39:58.:40:08.

5-over for the round. And a smile. The smile of a beaten man. Come on,

:40:09.:40:25.

Thomas. There you go. Quite a tournament, quite a first Masters.

:40:26.:40:33.

This guy right here, he will be around a long time. Fantastic swing,

:40:34.:40:35.

great demeanour. Putts nicely. Birdie birdie finish would be huge.

:40:36.:40:43.

It had the line. Rose from 30 feet or more. The

:40:44.:41:05.

left-to-right. The marker of Garcia glinting near the hole. A little bit

:41:06.:41:08.

high. Something left there. Westwood to finish. Playing

:41:09.:41:32.

alongside Thomas Pieters. 74. Still a top 20 finish. As if that would

:41:33.:41:40.

matter to him. He has flitted in and out of contention in this Masters.

:41:41.:41:49.

On the final day needed far, far better. Great consistency, but not

:41:50.:41:57.

to be this year at the Masters for Westwood. We head back to the 14th.

:41:58.:42:03.

There is a chance here for a two shot swing. Oh, it is a big putt for

:42:04.:42:14.

Sergio Garcia. The fist pump. The determination. At an all-time high

:42:15.:42:26.

for Sergio. He has applied the pressure now to Justin Rose.

:42:27.:42:32.

This is a Garcia -esque reaction. If you said he would be a shot better

:42:33.:42:45.

off after the penalty shot he took in the trees, he would have wondered

:42:46.:42:47.

about your sanity. Justin missed a short one on 13 and

:42:48.:42:59.

this is more tricky than the one he had on 13.

:43:00.:43:05.

This grip is fairly new to him. A confident stroke for Justin Rose. US

:43:06.:43:17.

Open champion, Gold Medal winner, taking a one shot lead to the 15th.

:43:18.:43:19.

A reachable par-5. Within the way, Schwartzel at the

:43:20.:43:25.

18th. -- wiggling. It is not going to be Schwartzel and

:43:26.:44:01.

certainly not speed. Let's seem if he can find a birdie on the 16th.

:44:02.:44:24.

Hurray. Five on the 12th. The Glorious 12th for Spieth. Tee shot

:44:25.:44:42.

on the 15th, Garcia. Not too far down on the left, those trees you

:44:43.:44:47.

can see blocking out, they can block out a second shot. Down the right

:44:48.:44:50.

half, get it to trundle down there. That is pretty good and he has put

:44:51.:45:11.

the pressure on Justin Rose, Sergio. He will reach easily here. Mid iron,

:45:12.:45:16.

maybe even a short iron from down there. That is miles down there.

:45:17.:45:28.

Justin Rose got BT box -- the tee box. Now Sergio's turn to put

:45:29.:45:35.

pressure on Justin Rose. Almost a fade. He browses head and

:45:36.:45:57.

looks not pleased. The driver is fine. Felt some discomfort there. A

:45:58.:46:05.

long way behind Garcia. Just did not look happy after the drive. Garcia

:46:06.:46:13.

chatting to him. I think he is fine. Now Garcia wants a chat. Look at

:46:14.:46:18.

this. An interesting reaction. You get the feeling he may be hit it on

:46:19.:46:26.

the heel a little bit. Maybe scored off to the right. When he went down

:46:27.:46:35.

to get his tee he looked a little tender. It might have been reaction

:46:36.:46:50.

to not quite puring it. He seems OK. Deep breath. Pressure is on. The

:46:51.:46:58.

palms are sweating. HAZEL IRVINE: The relief felt by Matt Kuchar. He

:46:59.:47:03.

is in the clubhouse in a tie with Thomas Pieters. The best final-round

:47:04.:47:12.

score in a major of his career. The highlight, the ace at 16. The 19th

:47:13.:47:19.

at that hole in Masters history. You are heading for your best finish

:47:20.:47:23.

since 2012. How much fun did you have today? I love being here, the

:47:24.:47:29.

course brings back great memories, of playing well and being in

:47:30.:47:34.

contention. To put a run on the back nine is so much fun and see my name

:47:35.:47:39.

on the leaderboard. To have a hole-in-one on 16 and get the

:47:40.:47:46.

amazing roar my kids probably heard at daycare down the street, it was a

:47:47.:47:50.

thrill. And you made the day of a young golf fan? One of the parts of

:47:51.:47:58.

the job is to bring a smile to a kid's phase and it is easy to do

:47:59.:48:06.

with a golf ball as we go from green to tee. That ball is not a keepsake

:48:07.:48:15.

for me. I thought this kid, it could brighten up his day and have

:48:16.:48:18.

something to remember and maybe he will fall in love with golf and we

:48:19.:48:22.

see him here in a couple of years. Well played today. Thanks a lot.

:48:23.:48:32.

ANDREW COTTER: And he has, at the moment, the clubhouse lead alongside

:48:33.:48:36.

Thomas Pieters. Justin Rose will be the first to play his second. Garcia

:48:37.:48:44.

is a long way past him. Garcia, the fire has been lit. Another look at

:48:45.:48:50.

the tee shot of Justin Rose. Just a little reaction after he hits

:48:51.:48:51.

it. I am not sure he is hurt, I think he

:48:52.:49:03.

is just thinking about the strike, because he moved off comfortably. He

:49:04.:49:07.

did and from experience, you can dehydrate quickly here. A little

:49:08.:49:19.

calf cramp, something simple. Justin Rose, he has to make a decision

:49:20.:49:24.

here. Sergio miles down there. He has to hit a great shot if he is

:49:25.:49:30.

going to go for this. We will see if we can hear the chat. The likelihood

:49:31.:49:39.

that he would lay up would be slim. You want to get the ball over the

:49:40.:49:44.

water as quickly as you can. Long right is OK. We can hear the bird

:49:45.:49:55.

chat. Schwartzel in the giant bunker on the left-hand side of the 18th.

:49:56.:50:02.

Should not be a problem. Sending it over the pin, Sandy Lyle style, or

:50:03.:50:09.

just right of it, but a good one and a chance to move to 6-under.

:50:10.:50:18.

Some decision to be made. Not going to chip. Looks like a longer iron.

:50:19.:50:28.

He pretty much has to go. Just right of the flag. Catch it clean. Down!

:50:29.:50:41.

Looks more like a middle iron. That is a good shot, a very good shot. He

:50:42.:50:46.

will be putting back up the hill. That is a pressure shot for Justin

:50:47.:50:53.

Rose, and now the pressure is on Sergio. A wonderful scene it is.

:50:54.:51:05.

Seve, when he felt that pressure in 1986 and found the water, but

:51:06.:51:10.

Garcia, now, just one shot behind and in prime position of the tee on

:51:11.:51:12.

the 15th. Be good, he says. Oh, and it's

:51:13.:51:35.

great. The trees of Augusta Sheikh with the noise. It almost went in on

:51:36.:51:42.

the fly. Garcia will have a straight uphill putt for eagle. What a shot.

:51:43.:51:49.

What a noise. Garcia right back in this. One of the great shots of the

:51:50.:52:01.

Masters here on the 15th. That was something very, very special.

:52:02.:52:08.

Arguably the biggest shot of Sergio's career. Before he hit it.

:52:09.:52:16.

And then he executes like that. Good stuff.

:52:17.:52:30.

That pitch Mark is right behind the hole. It glanced off the pin. Well,

:52:31.:52:47.

there we are. Well spotted. That could have gone in the water. It is

:52:48.:52:53.

not often a ball will hit a flagstick and stay within 30 feet of

:52:54.:52:58.

the hole. This is as good as you get here.

:52:59.:53:11.

Look at the pitch mark. It could have been closer than this. They

:53:12.:53:27.

have seen a beautiful shot. He still has to take advantage.

:53:28.:53:39.

Well, we are in a Match Play situation now. Two Ryder Cup heroes.

:53:40.:53:45.

Partners, team-mates. Can he convert it? Rose still has a

:53:46.:54:18.

couple of putts for birdie and he still has the lead.

:54:19.:54:28.

I know the Americans would have loved Fowler or Spieth to feature,

:54:29.:54:38.

but they are seeing a great battle developing. It does not get much

:54:39.:54:45.

better than this. An accomplished player in Justice -- in Justin Rose.

:54:46.:54:56.

And Sergio Garcia. The prospect of slipping on the green jacket on

:54:57.:55:02.

Seve's birthday. That was well judged. It is no gimme, but that is

:55:03.:55:04.

a good putt. A great crucible of golf. Here and

:55:05.:55:17.

on the 16th. The giant leaderboard. Sergio made a beautiful birdie on

:55:18.:55:37.

14. Hit his putt with a lot of conviction and has to do the same

:55:38.:55:43.

here. You cannot wish these in. You have to be completely committed to

:55:44.:55:47.

your line, get the right speed. It is almost certain the speed will be

:55:48.:55:55.

good. It was a very special second shot on the 15th. Can he finish it

:55:56.:55:56.

out? Hit it, hit it. As it! Eagle for

:55:57.:56:12.

Sergio Garcia! And a roar to be heard around the golfing world. He

:56:13.:56:17.

leaps into the lead at the Masters. He is flying. You have to have guts

:56:18.:56:30.

to eagle that hole in that situation and Sergio proving to himself he has

:56:31.:56:39.

the courage. He leads for now, because Rose still has this birdie

:56:40.:56:47.

putt to draw level at 9-under. Adrenaline coursing through the

:56:48.:56:48.

veins of Garcia. Rose has two remain the steadiest

:56:49.:57:01.

hand of all. If it goes. They are joined at the

:57:02.:57:20.

top. 9-under. Three clear. Three holes to go at the Masters. Nothing

:57:21.:57:31.

between them. Even in the heat of battle, a little pat from Garcia to

:57:32.:57:37.

Rose. What a final three holes we have in store. Here we have another

:57:38.:57:46.

look at this shot on 15 and there is no way you can do it better.

:57:47.:58:13.

Just... Now he somehow has to bring his heart rate down from the high

:58:14.:58:28.

200s, if that is possible. We are seeing it from every angle and it is

:58:29.:58:35.

worth it. A shake of the head from his caddy. Those last three holes

:58:36.:58:42.

from Garcia, from where he was on the 13th, he seemed as if it was

:58:43.:58:51.

dead and buried, it was over. He made such a poor decision on 13

:58:52.:58:56.

trying to go over the trees but what a par and birdie, eagle. Take a deep

:58:57.:59:00.

breath. Do what you always do. One of the

:59:01.:59:11.

best iron players in the game today. Here we go.

:59:12.:59:24.

Peter Alliss: An anxious look, but no need. That is going to be a

:59:25.:59:31.

little cracker. He has come alive. The five o'clock shadow is there.

:59:32.:59:58.

Indeed of cold steel and the badger. Oh, what joy.

:59:59.:00:04.

Followed him in. It looks good. Oh, yes. A hop forward there, a bit

:00:05.:00:45.

fortunate. But what two good cracking shots. Look at that, look

:00:46.:00:47.

at that, look at that... And suddenly, all was still. Never

:00:48.:02:25.

ceases to amaze me. But up to the 18th. Schwartzel for birdie. Can he

:02:26.:02:29.

get to 6-under? He can, he can! It may well not be

:02:30.:02:43.

enough, but a 68 for the 2011 champion. And he now leads in the

:02:44.:02:49.

clubhouse, three behind Rose and Garcia, it surely will not be

:02:50.:02:55.

enough, but a fine, fine finish. Of the two putts remaining, Justin Rose

:02:56.:03:01.

has a far simpler putt, even though it is a little bit longer. This is

:03:02.:03:06.

pretty straight, Peter, and Sergio has two player at least a couple

:03:07.:03:10.

more outside the live. You often hear people say, in this situation,

:03:11.:03:14.

would you like to putt first or second? A lot of people say they

:03:15.:03:18.

would putt first, and that is OK if you hole it. But if you putt and

:03:19.:03:22.

miss, you give the other fella a chance. If he holds this putt, it

:03:23.:03:28.

would be a mighty blow. A mighty blow if he can get this in. There is

:03:29.:03:33.

a little bit of movement there, but speed is so important. If you hit it

:03:34.:03:39.

too hard, it will miss on the right. Not quite enough, it could dribble

:03:40.:03:40.

away to the left. What a putt that was. Nerveless,

:03:41.:04:34.

that was. Read terrific. What about the speed, to? It had to be right.

:04:35.:04:36.

It had to be right, turning there. Sergio struggles a little bit with

:04:37.:04:55.

his left-to-right putts. No doubt what he needs to do here.

:04:56.:05:05.

He dribbled it, dribble it, dribbled it... Not a confident putt.

:05:06.:05:15.

Justin steps into the lead, two to go.

:05:16.:05:28.

Three, three, three, and he'll be disappointed. Justin already on the

:05:29.:05:31.

17th tee. Ready to go. Well, a big spike marks in his line

:05:32.:05:54.

there, it could have anatomy bit. If he made it, he would have to go

:05:55.:06:00.

directly over that. A poor putt for Sergio, by anybody's standard will.

:06:01.:06:16.

It really is a battle now between these two, first on the tee, you

:06:17.:06:22.

need a good drive, get it away, don't get into trouble. All these

:06:23.:06:27.

things play on your mind at key moments like this. "If I'm going

:06:28.:06:35.

first, please let me hit a good one".

:06:36.:06:51.

Dead silence. It's gone right, I fancy. Clipped the tree and came

:06:52.:06:57.

back out. Not too bad. Garcia just picking his target line.

:06:58.:07:31.

This fairway is less than 30 now in places.

:07:32.:07:37.

Setting up for a fake. Everything pointing a little down the left

:07:38.:07:46.

side. -- setting up for a fade. A low slider.

:07:47.:07:53.

4-under for his round, Garcia 300. So a very high standard of play. --

:07:54.:08:04.

Garcia, 3-under. And this was a medical little putt.

:08:05.:08:15.

Died into the heart of the cup. Little fist pump.

:08:16.:08:21.

HAZEL IRVINE: We thought Stinson against because was dry at Troon

:08:22.:08:27.

last year at the Open Championship, this is true sporting theatre on the

:08:28.:08:32.

greatest stage of them all, Augusta National. It's Rose with that 1-shot

:08:33.:08:37.

lead, two to play. Featuring prominently on the leaderboard,

:08:38.:08:42.

Thomas Pieters with his first time here, a closing 68. I wonder how he

:08:43.:08:45.

will reflect on his opening adventure in this wonderful place.

:08:46.:08:49.

Inside top ten on your first effort here, how proud are you of that

:08:50.:08:58.

achievement? It is nice to finish top five, which would be nice. I am

:08:59.:09:02.

disappointed with the way I finished, I could have had one or

:09:03.:09:05.

two better, and put more pressure on the leaders. It looks like Sergio

:09:06.:09:09.

Justin will get it. A lot of people talk about lessons

:09:10.:09:12.

learned at Augusta every time you play, what will be the things that

:09:13.:09:16.

you take away from this first experience? The cars definitely

:09:17.:09:21.

plays a lot different on a Sunday to a Thursday. Of course, we had a lot

:09:22.:09:26.

of rain -- the course. Some putts were lightning quick, and I will

:09:27.:09:31.

remember that for next year. How does this effort compared to the

:09:32.:09:36.

heat of battle in a Ryder Cup? It doesn't compare, but it's still

:09:37.:09:40.

great. It's really nice to feel those juices on a Sunday, hit shots

:09:41.:09:46.

like on 15. It is always a tough shot to hit it on the green. To do

:09:47.:09:51.

that, it's always a nice little accomplishment in the run. Well

:09:52.:09:52.

played this week. Thank you. COMMENTATOR: Still the drama

:09:53.:10:02.

continues. Justin Rose just on the fairway on the right-hand side. We

:10:03.:10:08.

do not know as yet how it's lying or what club you pick. Sergio come on

:10:09.:10:11.

the other hand, hit a magnificent tee shot. Justin's ball looks like

:10:12.:10:19.

it might have nestled down a little bit. Might squirt away on them a

:10:20.:10:22.

shed. He needs to be careful. The pin guarded by the bunker. The

:10:23.:10:33.

ball is a little bit below his feet. Quite a long way back is Justin.

:10:34.:10:43.

He's looking for an official. Is he standing in a sprint ahead? Or is

:10:44.:10:53.

his ball in a sprinkler head? -- is he standing in a sprinkler head?

:10:54.:10:58.

Here comes the cameraman. It might be in his swing path.

:10:59.:11:09.

Quite a generous offering, I would say, that, but hard to tell from

:11:10.:11:13.

just this camera angle. Also, Ken, he is a long way back. He

:11:14.:11:33.

has got 175 yards to the front from that sprinkler.

:11:34.:11:40.

The pin is on 23, the best part of 200 yards.

:11:41.:12:02.

What sort of club do you think he will hit from here? What distance

:12:03.:12:12.

has a good? I think it is 154. Yeah, 154, there you go. Eight? 175 total

:12:13.:12:19.

here. You have got to make a decision here, is this going to jump

:12:20.:12:23.

at all? If it is going to jump, you might want to jump it straight up

:12:24.:12:27.

and not out. You cannot go up and over this green. We saw what

:12:28.:12:31.

happened when Kuchar hit over here. It's spelt disaster. He made par but

:12:32.:12:37.

made a nice putt to get it. Over the green is no good. Left gives him a

:12:38.:12:41.

bit more depth of putting surface. He has got a 1-stroke lead as well.

:12:42.:12:57.

177 yards in total. And coming out the rough, he won't be able to grip

:12:58.:13:01.

it. The ball will come out with a firm bounce and run a little bit.

:13:02.:13:10.

One and a half holes to play. And that is right at... Oh, landed in

:13:11.:13:32.

the bunker, short. Short is vast lead better than long. I agree. I

:13:33.:13:38.

agree, it's not an overly difficult bunker shot, except for the

:13:39.:13:42.

situation. And now Sergio, it's not plugged, sitting OK. Time for Sergio

:13:43.:13:51.

to take dead aim. He's got the little plateau that you have to get

:13:52.:13:54.

up onto to have a good look at birdie. Very difficult to get close

:13:55.:13:56.

here. Sergio cannot go long. I'm lucky it didn't get one hop

:13:57.:14:27.

forward. But that's pretty good. Bit of a sliding putt. A little bit

:14:28.:14:35.

unlucky. Yes, not a bad angle to putt from. A lot worse angles than

:14:36.:14:40.

that. You have got to believe he took into consideration that Justin

:14:41.:14:44.

was in the bunker and took the back edge of the green completely out of

:14:45.:14:47.

play. Even if you do have a perfect number, it is very difficult to get

:14:48.:14:51.

close on that tiny plateau, Ken. Even if you do, it's so difficult to

:14:52.:15:04.

hole a putt. Five birdies today. Most of these bunker shots are

:15:05.:15:08.

pretty straightforward, but in this situation, Justin Rose is going to

:15:09.:15:12.

have to make a decision here. Not again. We don't need another one of

:15:13.:15:21.

these. Questioning whether the ball moved. It didn't move its position.

:15:22.:15:24.

It certainly didn't move. Always dangerous, tangling with the

:15:25.:15:31.

pine straw. I think, with all the pressure of

:15:32.:15:55.

the moment, some kind of little chunk and run here is an order. I

:15:56.:15:59.

don't see any need to try to hit a spinner to this pin.

:16:00.:16:08.

Even if you love your lie, the smart play is to get some kind of runner

:16:09.:16:19.

up the hill here. You need to play up the left-hand side, use the

:16:20.:16:24.

slope. If you are just fooling around, you'd get it up and down in

:16:25.:16:31.

two, seven times out of ten. But the situation is different. But they are

:16:32.:16:37.

magical bunker players now, all of them. So I'm expecting a good shot.

:16:38.:16:44.

It stuck a little bit. Left to right, not the easiest of putts

:16:45.:16:54.

left. Just an update on the ball possibly moving, it has been

:16:55.:17:00.

reviewed, moving a 13th in the pine needles, when he pulled more

:17:01.:17:04.

needles, and they determined no penalty. No penalty as Fowler misses

:17:05.:17:08.

on the 18th. Giving it a bit of a go. Jordan Spieth at the 18th. And

:17:09.:17:24.

he finishes well. He will live to fight another day.

:17:25.:17:30.

38 out, getting off to an untidy stock. Finishing in a blaze of glory

:17:31.:17:36.

in the last four holes. It wasn't his day.

:17:37.:17:46.

In it goes from Fowler, 76. Both he and Spieth tumbling back. We thought

:17:47.:17:55.

that group might be the real challenge to these two, but it

:17:56.:17:57.

simply didn't materialise. Sergio's giving this the fall

:17:58.:18:15.

business, looking at it from every angle. It's a slider, a tester. He

:18:16.:18:21.

dribbled the last one from about five feet horribly.

:18:22.:18:30.

Didn't look the most convincing stroke. We will have another look at

:18:31.:19:09.

it. A little bit of bounce on the ball, but it was never getting them

:19:10.:19:13.

out. The backswing looked all right, and he tried to do it all with the

:19:14.:19:17.

follow-through, and it decent read it and he pushed it on as best he

:19:18.:19:18.

could. -- and it do decelerated. This would be a gutsy one if he

:19:19.:19:33.

could get this one in. No, dribbled away. A chance for

:19:34.:19:57.

Sergio. Just not strong enough. Didn't knock it into the hole,

:19:58.:20:04.

dribbled it. Miss judged second, that began the problems.

:20:05.:20:09.

It only looks dated look, doesn't it, but it is a little bit longer

:20:10.:20:17.

than it looks. Just left of centre. A bit of pace, Sergio. Keep your

:20:18.:20:20.

head still. Try to keep your head still. Slowly back, and well done.

:20:21.:20:30.

And onto the 72nd hole level. One hole to go.

:20:31.:20:44.

Will it be won with a three, a mistake by somebody, or will it be a

:20:45.:20:54.

play-off? The bunkers are in play here at 18.

:20:55.:21:17.

We have seen several players drive it in today. Just under 300 yards to

:21:18.:21:25.

the first one both of these players have the power. Sergio, the bunkers

:21:26.:21:35.

are in play with the driver. He likes to hit that slider. You have

:21:36.:21:39.

to believe this is the biggest tee shot of his long, fairly illustrious

:21:40.:21:49.

career. He's had a terrific career. He needs a major Championship to cap

:21:50.:21:54.

it off. Maybe if you get one, you can get more. You can see him taking

:21:55.:22:00.

a deep breath here. He gets to apply the pressure first. I like the idea

:22:01.:22:05.

that he is going with driver because he forces Justin Rose's hand if he

:22:06.:22:08.

hits a good one. I fancy he is going to aim at the

:22:09.:22:23.

bunker on the left and slide it left to right if he can. I'm sure that's

:22:24.:22:25.

the thought going through his mind. And they love it. He loves it. And

:22:26.:22:41.

that's why, that's a rip-off. -- rip-off.

:22:42.:22:45.

That is probably the hardest he has swung all day. What a clutch shot.

:22:46.:22:56.

Now it's all on Justin Rose. -- that's a ripper.

:22:57.:23:22.

It's good. Two wonderful drives settle down there. That's fine. Two

:23:23.:23:35.

beautiful drives under all that pressure. Yeah, they don't come much

:23:36.:23:39.

better than those two. The excitement, they say it starts

:23:40.:23:52.

on a Sunday afternoon, the final nine. They are right. It was getting

:23:53.:23:55.

dull until that point, then it suddenly came alive. It's become one

:23:56.:24:07.

of the great Masters jewel. This is the spectators watching the

:24:08.:24:16.

leaderboard change. There we are. No doubt that Sergio Garcia's the

:24:17.:24:17.

sentimental favourite at the moment. I fancy there will be a wonderful

:24:18.:24:30.

ovation when they come up onto the green.

:24:31.:24:37.

HAZEL IRVINE: We might have several because we might have a play-off

:24:38.:24:41.

situation. If it is, it is the 18th and tenth recurring until we get a

:24:42.:24:45.

champion. Just as this is coming to a dramatic conclusion, let's reflect

:24:46.:24:49.

on the round played by Charles Warsaw, lying in third at the

:24:50.:24:53.

moment. A 68, a best finish since he left out of the pack since closing

:24:54.:24:57.

birdies to win in 2011. Let's hear from him.

:24:58.:25:01.

Your best effort at Augusta since you won did. Some up your week. It

:25:02.:25:11.

was a great week. I have come back every time, not finding my feet

:25:12.:25:20.

quite after that one. This week has been eighth tough first two days, I

:25:21.:25:23.

battled through that and did well at the weekend.

:25:24.:25:26.

You know what it is like to come down the stretch with a sniff of

:25:27.:25:30.

winning, can you give us any idea of what Justin and Sergio are going

:25:31.:25:33.

through now? All the bodies are standing up on

:25:34.:25:39.

16, I am sure about it. There is no golf course we plate where there's a

:25:40.:25:44.

war on 16, it's loud and it's exciting. They will have a great

:25:45.:25:52.

time. Thank you for your time this week. Thanks.

:25:53.:25:57.

COMMENTATOR: Thanks indeed. South Africa are well off in good players.

:25:58.:26:08.

A whole crop of them coming up. I wonder who is to play first. Could

:26:09.:26:16.

be Justin. I don't know, nip and tuck.

:26:17.:26:21.

The flag is in the favourite position for us. The final day. But

:26:22.:26:29.

you can play one a bit wide here on the 18th and end up very close to

:26:30.:26:34.

the pin. If you go over the top and too far, you can go 6-7 yards or

:26:35.:26:39.

more passed the hole if you get the right sort of pitch, it will come

:26:40.:26:42.

back to the hole. One with a bit of right to left, coming up the greens

:26:43.:26:45.

can turn towards the flag. What do you think they will be

:26:46.:27:02.

hitting from here, Paul? It is going to be a middle iron, I think, for

:27:03.:27:07.

Justin Rose. Maybe a six or seven up the hill, possibly and eight. It is

:27:08.:27:13.

advantage to Sergio Right now. It looks like Sergio is holding a

:27:14.:27:24.

witch, so Justin Rose probably just a couple clubs longer than that, may

:27:25.:27:32.

be an 8-iron. -- holding a wedge. The biggest mistake would be to head

:27:33.:27:37.

left. Especially if you are Rose. He has the advantage of going first and

:27:38.:27:42.

applying pressure to Sergio. But Sergio has a wedge, and no matter

:27:43.:27:49.

what, he is going right at the flag. Justin can put some pressure here on

:27:50.:27:53.

Sergio. He has picked out a round ended club, so they start at eights

:27:54.:28:00.

and nines, so it's a pretty short club he's got here. He can mosey up

:28:01.:28:07.

into the second bunker which is miles off the tee will stop maybe a

:28:08.:28:11.

9-iron or a wedge for Justin as well. He cannot miss left.

:28:12.:28:29.

The crowd will tell us where it is. Softly, softly...

:28:30.:28:39.

That's a fortunate bounce. Exactly as we said. That wasn't a very good

:28:40.:28:45.

shot, but a hell of a good result. The patrons left no doubt that

:28:46.:29:01.

that's close. Takes a steady and walking off it.

:29:02.:29:34.

Garcia again inside Rose! Blow for blow!

:29:35.:29:43.

Now, the same situation they were in on 16. Rose will go first. It has

:29:44.:29:55.

developed into one of the great finishes at the Masters.

:29:56.:30:01.

Rose went first, and in all truth, it didn't hit a great shot. Well

:30:02.:30:10.

wide of the target. Hits the corner of the bunker and ends up 10-12 feet

:30:11.:30:20.

away. And everyone goes bananas. And then along comes Sergio. Kate on the

:30:21.:30:28.

right, wife. Look at that, look at that... He's mine. There we go. And

:30:29.:30:35.

now Sergio thumps one up. And just wait for the raw. CHEERING

:30:36.:31:02.

Won't be too long when somebody will be ecstatically happy... Justin Rose

:31:03.:31:32.

first. This is the same situation as we had

:31:33.:31:51.

on 16. Rose with a little bit easier putt than Sergio. Justin gets to go

:31:52.:31:53.

first. This is it. Justin is reading this one on his

:31:54.:32:32.

own. It is his particular method. His wife looks on. A silent prayer,

:32:33.:32:46.

come on, hubby, you can do it. Here we go.

:32:47.:33:04.

I thought it was in all the way. Bob Blade, Justin.

:33:05.:33:30.

Rather like Carnoustie, he had a putt perhaps a little longer than

:33:31.:33:59.

this to win the Championship at Carnoustie and in the end, victory

:34:00.:34:03.

went to Padraig Harrington. He needs to strike one more good putt. This

:34:04.:34:15.

is wiggly. Pace is important. It can wander off. Here we go.

:34:16.:34:23.

No. No, no. That was always down the right.

:34:24.:34:41.

If this goes in, they will have to do more work.

:34:42.:34:56.

It is a bit of an anti-climax after those two spectacular second shots.

:34:57.:35:11.

So, a play-off. Sudden death. Over the 18th and the tenth, recurring

:35:12.:35:16.

until we have a winner, or until the light runs out. ANDREW COTTER: A

:35:17.:35:31.

shake of the head from Garcia. He will replay that putt in his head in

:35:32.:35:39.

years to come. Rose is. A reminder that we will be slightly delayed at

:35:40.:35:43.

Augusta, but I am sure you are enjoying it. Going up to sign their

:35:44.:35:50.

scores before heading down to the 18th. It is sudden death here, the

:35:51.:35:54.

only major that remains sudden death. His fiancee, encouraging

:35:55.:36:05.

Garcia. You mentioned the putt at Carnoustie that he had to win, that

:36:06.:36:09.

was a more convincing strike them that one, because that was never...

:36:10.:36:16.

He hardly took the putter back. I thought it was in. Absolutely in the

:36:17.:36:18.

middle and somehow he missed. Watch this, he hardly takes it back.

:36:19.:36:39.

Always down the right, never running at the hole. More work to be done.

:36:40.:36:51.

They stayed the play-off format in 2004 and the first time it came into

:36:52.:36:58.

play was 2005, when it was Tiger Woods and Chris DiMarco. Nick Faldo

:36:59.:37:07.

won on the 11th. They kept going from the tenth. I do not know why. I

:37:08.:37:12.

think they wanted to try to finish in front of the galleries on the

:37:13.:37:16.

18th. They used to head off down the tenth and finish, as Fowler did, on

:37:17.:37:19.

the 11th. With Floyd. -- Faldo. A reminder of some of the play-offs

:37:20.:37:41.

in recent Masters memory. Mike Weir, winning on the old tenth. Tiger

:37:42.:37:46.

Woods beat Chris DiMarco in the new format. Cabrera, 2009. That play-off

:37:47.:37:57.

went on longer. Bubba Watson. He beat Louis Oosthuizen on the tenth

:37:58.:38:05.

in 2012. And Scott and Cabrera involved, but Scott the winner, this

:38:06.:38:10.

time. HAZEL IRVINE: We have seen amazing

:38:11.:38:17.

golf today, some of the most sensational and supreme

:38:18.:38:22.

sportsmanship on display and after 72 holes deregulation both of them

:38:23.:38:29.

in effect had a putt for it. And we will have to do this again, the 18th

:38:30.:38:33.

and the tenth recurring until we have a winner. Will it be Rose? Will

:38:34.:38:40.

it be Garcia? And the fiance and Justin's wife, Kate. That is Angela,

:38:41.:38:49.

Sergio's fiance. We understand they are marrying later this year. She

:38:50.:38:54.

has been with him since last year and is something of a talisman

:38:55.:39:00.

winning his first PGA event in four years and first in Europe for three

:39:01.:39:05.

years, as well, with Angela by his side. She is something of a good

:39:06.:39:13.

luck charm. The crowd, all of us, way past midnight now and I am sure

:39:14.:39:17.

you are as enthralled by events here as we are. Ken Brown is with you. We

:39:18.:39:26.

saw last year at Troon, a final day we thought would never be beaten but

:39:27.:39:31.

this is alongside that. It is marvellous in sport when you see two

:39:32.:39:34.

of the best players go head-to-head at the top of their games. It was

:39:35.:39:43.

set up perfectly for exciting golf, the course. Still more to come.

:39:44.:39:48.

Play-offs are not satisfactory because somebody goes away with the

:39:49.:39:54.

glory, and the person tied, can just drift into the byways of golf. A

:39:55.:40:00.

massive moment. Probably less pressure on Justin. We can see the

:40:01.:40:10.

putts at the 18th. Justin had the longer of the two. Just squeezes by.

:40:11.:40:15.

One of those that we have seen many times. He turns from right to left.

:40:16.:40:23.

Everything says it on the green. Like a Sandy Lyle putt. Similar

:40:24.:40:29.

angle. Difficult to read. I do not know if he convinced himself he knew

:40:30.:40:33.

the line. It was tough. I vividly remember the ten footer he had at

:40:34.:40:39.

Carnoustie in 2007, having started the day with a three shot lead.

:40:40.:40:49.

Sergio have the putt at the end and did not make it. Ten years later, he

:40:50.:40:54.

is still waiting. He has been competing in Majors 21 years. This

:40:55.:41:02.

is his 74th. You sense there is a real feeling for Sergio among the

:41:03.:41:05.

crowd. They believe it could be his day and many would love it to be his

:41:06.:41:11.

day. He has certainly done his time. This is his 74th major. I go back to

:41:12.:41:18.

the PGA Championship in 99 when he had a chance to win. He was still in

:41:19.:41:27.

his teens. He was 19. Harrington at Carnoustie, the man raking the

:41:28.:41:30.

bunker took longer and slightly put him off his approach to the 18th and

:41:31.:41:34.

he took three more from where he was. He deserves a major. Golf in

:41:35.:41:40.

sport does not work like that. He has to earn it now and focus. He is

:41:41.:41:46.

hitting the ball slightly better but not making the putts. Justin, he has

:41:47.:41:53.

holed the vital putts. He has had a good day on the greens. Who will

:41:54.:41:58.

come out on top? They both shunted it out to the right on the tenth

:41:59.:42:06.

last time. Not a hole they feel comfortable with. Sergio was three

:42:07.:42:11.

shots ahead and then found himself two behind. Trouble with the trees.

:42:12.:42:17.

Weathering the storm around Amen Corner and this out the 15.

:42:18.:42:23.

Extraordinary from him. He had not made an eagle for more than six

:42:24.:42:29.

years. A huge tee shot. Still a demanding shot. This was unlucky in

:42:30.:42:35.

some ways. The natural thing, it would be closer. Many times people

:42:36.:42:40.

have gone into the flagstick and he could have come back into the water.

:42:41.:42:44.

Up the slope you have the perfect angle. Seve said, getting there. He

:42:45.:42:52.

blew it in from the heavens. Two putts. Justin unlucky with the

:42:53.:42:58.

second. When left. More often than not you scoot over the green. This

:42:59.:43:06.

is a beautiful shot. The tricky thing he had, he left himself the

:43:07.:43:11.

downhill left to right. They are always tricky. Rose, a brilliant

:43:12.:43:20.

reply, but very lucky. The pitch a foot further left, it probably

:43:21.:43:24.

finishes in the water. Watch his reaction. He knows he was lucky.

:43:25.:43:36.

Justin, of course, would make the putt to go 10-under. We began to see

:43:37.:43:43.

the putting frailty that has been a feature of Sergio's play in Majors.

:43:44.:43:51.

He was one behind. At the 17th, Rose, he had gone into a bunker and

:43:52.:43:56.

dropped a shot. Suddenly, all square, because it was pure Match

:43:57.:44:02.

Play by this point. The bunker shot is easy at 17. Wherever you putt

:44:03.:44:10.

from it is tricky. Cracking drives. Absolutely ideal. Rose had fortune.

:44:11.:44:15.

Danny Willett landed his second there and it kicked across the

:44:16.:44:22.

green. This he hit exactly. He knows it is a pin seeker. That was a

:44:23.:44:28.

beauty. Unlucky it did not stop quicker. Thumbs up from Justin. Here

:44:29.:44:39.

we are again. Justin. Did not go in. As we know, Sergio had a similar

:44:40.:44:44.

putt from the other side. This is tricky to read. He was trying to dab

:44:45.:44:52.

it. Sandy Lyle had that putt and it went dead straight. Unlucky on 16

:44:53.:45:01.

and 17, leaving himself with horrible putts. We are getting set

:45:02.:45:08.

for the first ever Masters play-off between two European players and the

:45:09.:45:13.

11th since we went to sudden death in 1979. We have had some drama. The

:45:14.:45:24.

last one was 2013. Bubba Watson. Louis Oosthuizen. We have had four

:45:25.:45:31.

years to wait for similar drama and it is Match Play situation and we

:45:32.:45:35.

have two of the best Ryder Cup players we have seen in that

:45:36.:45:44.

situation. They are going to a tough par four. Interesting to see their

:45:45.:45:49.

strategy of the tee. The sun is setting but it is brighter. We have

:45:50.:45:54.

probably got 40 minutes of playable right and left. We have seen that

:45:55.:46:01.

the Tempest will follow this programme but there is a tempest

:46:02.:46:07.

here. A competitive storm brewing. I'm sure you will stay with us. I

:46:08.:46:12.

know you have worked in the morning, but, come on, this is history in the

:46:13.:46:17.

making. Will it be Danny Willett who passes the green jacket to a fellow

:46:18.:46:22.

English man? Will it be the first Spanish victory since Olazabal in

:46:23.:46:32.

1999. I know he's sent Sergio a note, an inspirational note, I am

:46:33.:46:41.

told, giving him a fillip. He is one of the most inspirational people I

:46:42.:46:48.

know. And what better fillip what would have been the birthday of

:46:49.:46:54.

Ballesteros? They were inspired by the memory of Seve Ballesteros. I

:46:55.:47:00.

remember him speaking to Justin Rose and pointing to his sleeve with

:47:01.:47:07.

Seve's logo on it, saying we are doing it for him. The standards set

:47:08.:47:17.

by Seve. Everyone's hero, coming through. The Spanish players,

:47:18.:47:28.

European players. Justin is trying to become a multiple major winner.

:47:29.:47:33.

And says if he can become winner of two Majors. He is a US Open champion

:47:34.:47:40.

and gold medallists, it would cement his legacy. Sergio Garcia trying to

:47:41.:47:44.

make a breakthrough after all these years in Majors. Always useful to

:47:45.:47:47.

have the honour of the first. They were just roaring lots. I'm sure

:47:48.:47:55.

they aren't ready for some more action.

:47:56.:47:57.

ANDREW COTTER: Rose first. He played this hole in regulation play so

:47:58.:48:10.

beautifully. The shoe is on the other foot because Justin Rose gets

:48:11.:48:16.

to go first. 45 minutes of light left to decide this. The

:48:17.:48:27.

all-important tee shot. Both bunkers in play.

:48:28.:48:45.

Silence. Fading into the middle of the trees. Drops out and tries to

:48:46.:48:54.

get back. A stroke of good fortune. He has some sort of shot. He has no

:48:55.:48:56.

idea where that is. Looks like a long jumper getting

:48:57.:49:19.

ready to take off. Rather muted. That is a crackerjack.

:49:20.:49:41.

A super drive. Rolls down in the pine needles. He

:49:42.:50:11.

will have to move that a lot from left to right. Up at the green they

:50:12.:50:31.

wait. All the drama of Augusta. Late on a Sunday evening.

:50:32.:50:58.

It all depends on a number of things as far as Rose is concerned. The

:50:59.:51:06.

lie. He will have to cut it around the trees that there is a way of

:51:07.:51:10.

getting the job done if he has a decent slip macro. Down there on the

:51:11.:51:15.

corner where the tree stick out, the smaller pines. There are no phones

:51:16.:51:31.

inside Augusta, you have no access to monitors. We will see Garcia

:51:32.:51:33.

appearing eventually on the fairway. It has nestled. There it is. He has

:51:34.:52:09.

to squirted out with a long chip and run with a two iron. He might take a

:52:10.:52:13.

3-wood and scuttle it along the ground. You do not have to get the

:52:14.:52:23.

ball in the air. Not a bad shot for a chip with a driver.

:52:24.:52:38.

Justin has to decide what to do here and where to put it. No trouble

:52:39.:52:43.

getting it under the tree and reaching the green. It is where do

:52:44.:52:46.

you want to have it end up? He could get it on the green from

:52:47.:53:05.

here. Actually, it looks more blocked out now.

:53:06.:53:16.

Oh, he half shanked it. He would have done better with a wooden club.

:53:17.:53:24.

A fairway club. It is rather old-fashioned to use those shots.

:53:25.:53:29.

They just don't see them these days. Lee Trevino would have taken a

:53:30.:53:34.

driver, down the shaft, and played a slicer. Never got the ball off the

:53:35.:53:43.

ground. Sergio, just alongside you for two. Find the green. One good

:53:44.:53:51.

clean straight iron. It looks good. CHEERING.

:53:52.:54:15.

It is a beautiful shot. Sergio's fiance is eagerly clapping

:54:16.:54:42.

her chap, and why not? He is very much in the driving seat.

:54:43.:54:57.

He needs something special. Garcia among the millions watching.

:54:58.:55:12.

He needs a big bounce off the edge. Not too bad. Not as bad as he

:55:13.:55:20.

thought. He has a chance, still. A similar putt to the one he had a

:55:21.:55:26.

regulation play, just a little bit longer. But he is still alive.

:55:27.:55:40.

The noise will slowly grow for these two.

:55:41.:56:34.

Justin will be the first putt if he misses, Sergio.

:56:35.:57:06.

Justin had a putt on almost the identical line, about 15 minutes

:57:07.:57:15.

ago. He knows now that it does not go left. I would be surprised if he

:57:16.:57:25.

did not hit a great putt. Sergio better be bracing himself that this

:57:26.:57:33.

does not go in. Almost the putt Mark O'Meara had when he won a

:57:34.:57:38.

tournament. He made 20, 20 five foot putt. Justin closer but on the same

:57:39.:57:42.

line. Look at the Galleries. Nobody has

:57:43.:57:56.

gone home yet. Justin's mother and wife. Hoping and

:57:57.:58:28.

praying. That this little white ball is going to disappear.

:58:29.:58:37.

It looks like a knobbly knees competition. Perhaps not. Here we

:58:38.:58:44.

go. Two for it, Sergio. Great effort,

:58:45.:59:20.

Justin. It was not to be. When Sergio hit that while tee shot at

:59:21.:59:26.

the 13th it looked all over. Now he has two putts and what, 18 feet. Two

:59:27.:59:31.

putts. For his first major. Saying don't do anything stupid.

:59:32.:59:55.

When you have two for it, just tickle it down the right-hand side.

:59:56.:00:03.

Well, one will do. Well done, Sergio. You have done it at last.

:00:04.:00:18.

They are great pals. On and off the course. Well done. Great stuff. On

:00:19.:00:31.

Seve's birthday. What a day to do it.

:00:32.:00:44.

He has waited a long, long time. And now it is finally happening. Finest

:00:45.:00:49.

hour. There will be some fun in the old

:00:50.:01:03.

town tonight. Come on! 74 Majors. And, finally, he is the

:01:04.:01:42.

nearly man no more. A smile I have not seen too often in major

:01:43.:01:45.

champions at the end. Commiserations to that man. He has had his moments.

:01:46.:01:50.

The US Open and the Olympic medal. Rafael Cabrera-Bello waiting to

:01:51.:02:15.

offer his congratulations. He will be quickly ushered to the cabin for

:02:16.:02:22.

that famous presentation, which he will have creamed off. -- creamed

:02:23.:02:26.

off. Dreamed of.. It sounds as popular a

:02:27.:02:43.

win we have seen. He has been challenged so hard. He is the PGA

:02:44.:02:48.

champion. The players champion a fuel years ago. He has won big

:02:49.:02:55.

events here. He has had ups and downs and a few crazy things. Today

:02:56.:03:02.

it has come to fruition. He has won one of the four Majors and done it

:03:03.:03:09.

in some style. Justin Rose contributed, playing magnificent

:03:10.:03:16.

golf today. Sergio earned this. It was not handed to him. And he

:03:17.:03:21.

deserved it. A lot of hard work finally pays off. He had two, but to

:03:22.:03:39.

do it in one. He won it. That is how it should be. Up they come and in

:03:40.:03:52.

she goes. Whoopee. Great stuff. Emotion, pure joy.

:03:53.:04:04.

So many others thought this day would not come. Garcia always seem

:04:05.:04:32.

to be... It seemed like he would never win a major. Some many great

:04:33.:04:36.

players have never won a major. All around the world. And other quite

:04:37.:04:42.

modest players who have done it. It is one of those weird and wonderful

:04:43.:04:51.

things. I am not sure we have seen displays of emotion as overt as

:04:52.:04:58.

that. A release of tension over all the years.

:04:59.:05:12.

What a Championship, what a champion we have in Sergio Garcia. He joins

:05:13.:05:20.

our famous trio of Spanish champions here.

:05:21.:05:28.

COMMENTATOR: And there it is. Seve Ballesteros.

:05:29.:05:45.

CHEERING. Yes, well done. HAZEL IRVINE: Seve, Jose Maria and Sergio.

:05:46.:06:19.

74th time lucky. At last. Finally, joyously, the stars have aligned. I

:06:20.:06:27.

think one of the most popular wins we have ever seen here. So many

:06:28.:06:32.

people willing him on. Even Rory McIlroy on Twitter said, let him

:06:33.:06:42.

have one. Vamos! Well said. You have to feel for Justin Rose. Runner-up a

:06:43.:06:47.

second time as he greets his wife Kate. It was a sterling effort. He

:06:48.:06:53.

will be back. He has never missed a cut here. Runner-up twice in 12

:06:54.:06:59.

appearances. He loves this place. I am sure not even Justin would

:07:00.:07:04.

begrudge Sergio his victory today. The two of them great friends. A

:07:05.:07:09.

wonderful evening will stop I am sure you are with us at 1:40am. I'd

:07:10.:07:15.

known it is a weekday but I am sure you have enjoyed it. How would you

:07:16.:07:21.

describe the last hours here? It has been electrifying. It was a

:07:22.:07:24.

ding-dong battle. Justin Rose getting a couple ahead and then it

:07:25.:07:29.

got close around the turn and Sergio, a couple of loose tea shots.

:07:30.:07:34.

You thought perhaps his day is not going to be there. A brilliant tee

:07:35.:07:40.

shot at the 15th. It has been a duel of the highest quality. Top

:07:41.:07:46.

sportsmanship. I think the golfing world thinks that Justin already has

:07:47.:07:51.

a major and it is nice for Sergio to have one. He deserves it. He has

:07:52.:07:57.

been in the top 20 in the world virtually 20 years. At last, at

:07:58.:08:06.

last, look. It wriggles in. He had two for it. Get in there, baby. 12

:08:07.:08:14.

top fives, four runners up in Majors. At the time of his first

:08:15.:08:26.

major victory, 22 top tens. He alternates caddies but that will

:08:27.:08:30.

have been a marvellous moment. Seve, looking down today. Happy birthday.

:08:31.:08:40.

And Oli, one of the great champions. Congratulations to him. He has been

:08:41.:08:45.

a beautiful striker of the ball and sometimes vulnerable on the greens,

:08:46.:08:49.

but at last. And the expectation of Spain, having to follow these

:08:50.:08:55.

amazing champions from Spain. From a very young age he was going to be

:08:56.:09:00.

the next Seve, the next Oli and, at last, he has got what he deserves.

:09:01.:09:06.

What will Justin Rose take? It will be it a disappointment but the

:09:07.:09:09.

quality of his play will stay longer in the memory. He will be thinking,

:09:10.:09:15.

what more can I have done? I have played a lovely round of golf. He is

:09:16.:09:20.

a champion professional golfer, the way he handles himself, the way he

:09:21.:09:28.

plays. Exquisite. Today he came up against a slightly better man. If

:09:29.:09:32.

you give your best shot and get beaten, you put your hand out and

:09:33.:09:36.

say well done. This is truly one of the greatest stages in sport. It

:09:37.:09:41.

does this every time. Today they set the course up, particularly the back

:09:42.:09:47.

nine, to give the fellows a chance. Most of them took their chances. It

:09:48.:09:52.

can give and take away just as brutally if you miss a shot

:09:53.:09:57.

marginally. From the European standpoint we had Danny Willett last

:09:58.:10:01.

year and Sergio this time. You look back to the period from 1980, when

:10:02.:10:06.

Seve was the first European to win here. The 11 wins in a 20 year

:10:07.:10:12.

period. A golden age. Are we returning to that status, European

:10:13.:10:17.

golf? Thomas Pieters is a fantastic player. Matt Fitzpatrick has a good

:10:18.:10:25.

game. We have a lot of good youngsters, as America have. A

:10:26.:10:30.

slight changing of the guard. Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth. There will be

:10:31.:10:33.

a battle between the young guns who have fought in the Ryder Cup

:10:34.:10:43.

matches. Sergio has been a Ryder Cup stalwart. We have talked about the

:10:44.:10:47.

spirit and those qualities brought to bear. When you are playing

:10:48.:10:55.

against... If you play in a European Ryder Cup team you have 12 friends

:10:56.:10:59.

for life. It would have been quite difficult to take. Ultimately you

:11:00.:11:04.

have to get out there and do what is best for you. Sergio was absolutely

:11:05.:11:10.

amazing today. There were plenty of Craxi could have fallen through. His

:11:11.:11:15.

window of opportunity may have been broken but he's stuck in and credit

:11:16.:11:20.

to him. Danny Willett knew he would present the green jacket to one have

:11:21.:11:24.

his Ryder Cup colleagues, he just did not know which one. Amazing that

:11:25.:11:30.

five years after Sergio Garcia said in this very place, I cannot win a

:11:31.:11:36.

major, I will always only be playing for second and third. I wonder what

:11:37.:11:44.

has turned his mindset around. I would say his relationship with his

:11:45.:11:48.

girlfriend has been enormous. He has had different girlfriends and never

:11:49.:11:52.

really got settled but this time he is at peace with himself. OK, time

:11:53.:12:00.

to present the green jacket at last. Jim, another exciting job. It was a

:12:01.:12:07.

great tournament. Jim and I will soon repeat the tradition of the

:12:08.:12:12.

award of the Masters green jacket. I would like to take this opportunity

:12:13.:12:17.

to thank TV viewers across America and in over 200 countries around the

:12:18.:12:21.

world for your long-term and loyal support of the Masters. And now

:12:22.:12:27.

welcomed three special gentleman. This year's amateur, Stewart

:12:28.:12:34.

Hagestad. Last year's champion, Danny Willett. Danny,

:12:35.:12:41.

congratulations, I am very proud of you. And our 2017 champion, Sergio

:12:42.:12:51.

Garcia. Sergio, very very proud. Thank you very much. Please have a

:12:52.:12:58.

seat. Jim has a few questions. The amateur participation here is a part

:12:59.:13:05.

of their heritage. To be below amateur, I saw you before the

:13:06.:13:09.

tournament and we had a discussion that you would be here on Sunday. I

:13:10.:13:13.

got the feeling you were going to be. As we discussed, we will talk

:13:14.:13:19.

about that on Sunday, but it is a blessing to represent amateurs

:13:20.:13:22.

around the country and be sitting here with a worthy champion and last

:13:23.:13:27.

year's champion and yourselves is a dream come true. How did you play

:13:28.:13:33.

such good golf? I played within myself, I made committed golf

:13:34.:13:39.

swings. I didn't make a double all week. That was critical to keeping

:13:40.:13:44.

me in it. Bogeys will not kill you, but doubles will. I stuck to my game

:13:45.:13:49.

plan and played great. You made a lot of folks at USC proud. Now you

:13:50.:13:56.

are a financial analyst in New York will stop will this change the

:13:57.:14:00.

course of your life? I will have to think about a lot of things but I

:14:01.:14:06.

have no plans to turn pro. And to test my game against the world's

:14:07.:14:11.

best, that was the goal this week. I know where I stand and these guys

:14:12.:14:16.

are awfully good. I think I will continue doing what I am doing but

:14:17.:14:22.

it was a dream come true this week. Congratulations. Sergio, this is the

:14:23.:14:30.

moment you have waited for. I'm sorry, I don't know how... It has

:14:31.:14:37.

been such a long time coming. I thought I had it on 18. I hit the

:14:38.:14:43.

putt where I wanted and had practised that putt. It breaks left

:14:44.:14:47.

and for some reason it didn't. I knew I was playing well. I felt

:14:48.:14:55.

today the calmest I have never felt on a major Sunday. Even after making

:14:56.:15:03.

a couple of bogeys, I was still very positive. I still believed that

:15:04.:15:09.

there were a lot of holes I could get to. I hit really good shots

:15:10.:15:18.

coming in. I am sorry. And you've got reminded of it so many times,

:15:19.:15:24.

for this moment of a lifetime to happen on Seve's birthday. It is

:15:25.:15:31.

amazing. To do it on his 60th birthday and to join him and

:15:32.:15:36.

Olazabal, my idols in golf, my whole life. It is something amazing. Jose

:15:37.:15:46.

sent me a text on Wednesday telling me how much he believed in me and

:15:47.:15:53.

what I needed to do. I pretty much believed in myself. Being calm, not

:15:54.:15:59.

letting things get to me I have done in the past. Everybody has been

:16:00.:16:07.

great. The whole family, my fiancee, my parents, her parents, all the

:16:08.:16:11.

friends here, such great support. You had a couple of moments. The par

:16:12.:16:19.

at 13. The par of a lifetime because at that point you are in danger of

:16:20.:16:24.

falling perhaps four behind Justin and somehow you faced the adversity

:16:25.:16:30.

and made par. I did not feel I hit a bad drive. Unfortunately I did not

:16:31.:16:36.

cut it enough and hit the tree. It went on playable. Hit a good third

:16:37.:16:41.

and fourth shot. I knew I needed to make the putt to stay with it. I

:16:42.:16:46.

knew I could do what I did on 14 and 15. I knew I was playing well enough

:16:47.:16:57.

to make something happen. That part turned the clock a little bit for me

:16:58.:17:05.

-- that putt. It got me more confident. I was able to make two

:17:06.:17:11.

great holes. The last player to eagle the 15th in the final round on

:17:12.:17:18.

his way to winning was Jose. I probably hit one of the best eight

:17:19.:17:26.

irons I have ever hit. From the fairway we did not know if it hit

:17:27.:17:32.

the hole all the flag. I think it bounced and ricocheted off the flag

:17:33.:17:38.

and went to probably about 12 feet. I hit probably one of the best putts

:17:39.:17:45.

I have hit all week. I will comment about the back and forth with you

:17:46.:17:52.

and Justin. Showing sportsmanship out there when it was so intense. At

:17:53.:17:56.

the end of the day, we are all trying to win. But we are all

:17:57.:18:04.

people. We have to represent our game and raise the way we should. We

:18:05.:18:13.

are good friends, so we were very respectful to one another. We were

:18:14.:18:20.

cheering each other on. We wanted to beat the other guy, not the guy to

:18:21.:18:26.

lose it. How long has this moment played in your head? This time to be

:18:27.:18:33.

a major champion? It is funny, I have seen it several times. When I

:18:34.:18:40.

came here in 99 as an amateur. I felt like this course was probably

:18:41.:18:47.

going to give be at one Major. I am not going to live, that thought

:18:48.:18:52.

changed over the years because I started feeling uncomfortable on the

:18:53.:19:00.

course. I only came at peace with it. I accepted what Augusta gives

:19:01.:19:07.

and takes. Because of that I am able to be here today. Like Seve and Jose

:19:08.:19:15.

Maria, you have a green jacket. Are you ready to put it on? Danny,

:19:16.:19:25.

please do the honour. Wonderful. Congratulations, Sergio. Thanks so

:19:26.:19:32.

much. It is a pleasure. APPLAUSE

:19:33.:19:37.

. HAZEL IRVINE: He has been

:19:38.:19:42.

made-to-measure for that jacket such a long time. Watched by his fiancee

:19:43.:19:49.

Angela at the back of the green. The reaction the same. Syncing to their

:19:50.:19:59.

knees. Sergio a major winner. Rory tweeted two unbelievable players and

:20:00.:20:05.

two great friends. He says to Sergio, you deserve it, amigo. A

:20:06.:20:20.

wonderful victory. And, Ken Brown, summing up, where does Sergio go

:20:21.:20:25.

from here? Is this the start for him, or will he be happy to settle

:20:26.:20:30.

as a Masters champion here the rest of his life? He will be happy to

:20:31.:20:35.

have a green jacket and will return for the champions dinner every year.

:20:36.:20:40.

When you look at his play from the 15th to the 18th, he did not miss a

:20:41.:20:46.

shot. He missed a couple of putts but the tee to green game was

:20:47.:20:52.

imperious. That is what got him to victory. Justin Rose found himself

:20:53.:20:58.

three shots behind. And then two in front. Showed composure and mental

:20:59.:21:03.

strength. Touch and control all day. That could have won it for him and

:21:04.:21:09.

it didn't. He came back in the play-off. Again at the 18th. The

:21:10.:21:14.

mistake of the tee. He was under pressure. Eadie did this and it slip

:21:15.:21:21.

by. We can get Justin's thoughts. An amazing day of golf. What is going

:21:22.:21:25.

through your mind right now? You know, disappointed. I do not know

:21:26.:21:32.

how I feel about it at the moment. It happens fast when you lose the

:21:33.:21:36.

play-off. Sudden death. You are in it and suddenly it is over. It was a

:21:37.:21:45.

great day, it really was. Sergio and I separated ourselves from the field

:21:46.:21:50.

and he had a great comeback. From the 13th. That was the turning point

:21:51.:21:56.

for him. At that point I felt in control and continue to be in

:21:57.:22:01.

control till the end. Sometimes it is the rub of the green for you and

:22:02.:22:07.

sometimes not. I hit a good putt on 18 of regulation. I think I under

:22:08.:22:13.

read my second one in the play-off and because of that it goes low. You

:22:14.:22:18.

cannot second-guess yourself. I felt in control all day. I am happy for

:22:19.:22:24.

Sergio. I would love to be wearing the green jacket, but it was not me,

:22:25.:22:30.

then for him. Did you stay calm? Did the butterflies kicking? I am

:22:31.:22:36.

surprised how cool I was. I did feel in control till the end. I think

:22:37.:22:43.

that is a sign of me maturing as a player. I feel it is a tournament I

:22:44.:22:48.

will do well in in the future. As Fred Couples and many have proved if

:22:49.:22:53.

it is of course you get to know you can be relevant and competitive here

:22:54.:22:57.

a long time. I see many more chances to come. You talked about the merit

:22:58.:23:02.

of Sergio's win, what about the, Raja read between you in the intense

:23:03.:23:07.

heat of battle? We have been friends a long time and being playing golf

:23:08.:23:13.

against each other since we were 14. Our careers will go on. He will be

:23:14.:23:19.

happy for a month and then golf will take over. I will be disappointed a

:23:20.:23:24.

month and then golf will take over and we will carry on. There are more

:23:25.:23:33.

goals and objectives. I look forward to the US Open and Birkdale. I was

:23:34.:23:38.

disappointed to come so close that the year is only getting going now.

:23:39.:23:42.

I have enjoyed watching you play all week. Great effort. Tank you very

:23:43.:23:48.

much. He is such an impressive man and golfer, Justin Rose. He will be

:23:49.:23:53.

back, he will have other chances. But Sergio Garcia has taken his, as

:23:54.:23:59.

indeed he took his chance winning as amateur. Seve, the first ever

:24:00.:24:07.

European champion. He played a practice round here the first time

:24:08.:24:13.

with Seve. In his first major in 1976 at Royal Lytham. He has been in

:24:14.:24:18.

the shadow of these great men such a long time. Seve and Jose Maria, but

:24:19.:24:26.

no longer. It goes to prove that good things come to those who wait

:24:27.:24:33.

and wait and wait. He has bridged an 18 year gap back to the last Spanish

:24:34.:24:39.

success. That was the putt that did it. Ah!. And what a pleasure to be

:24:40.:24:54.

part of it. Such a delight to see him. So happy and all the history of

:24:55.:25:00.

Sergio Garcia, a young prodigy and he has come through and won his

:25:01.:25:05.

masters. A terrific week of golf. I am hoping everybody enjoyed it at

:25:06.:25:10.

home as we enjoyed it bringing to you. On Wednesday it is the world

And more heart thumping, slow burning drama to come over the next

:25:21.:25:26.

17 days at the Crucible when the World Snooker Championship gets

:25:27.:25:30.

under way next Saturday. I am looking forward to being there. It

:25:31.:25:34.

has been another amazing night at the Masters. One of the very best I

:25:35.:25:40.

think we have ever seen. Thank you for sharing it with us and thank you

:25:41.:25:44.

for allowing me to share this with you. Over the last 25 years we have

:25:45.:25:49.

seen fantastic golf together. Wonderful to be with you and thank

:25:50.:25:54.

you to the team for putting up with me the last 25 years. It has been a

:25:55.:26:00.

joy. On behalf of the team I would like to say thank you very much and

:26:01.:26:05.

on behalf of the viewers, I am sure everybody has enjoyed Hazel the

:26:06.:26:10.

golf. Have memories and friends to last a lifetime. The last word is

:26:11.:26:16.

with Sergio Garcia. He is no longer Spain's nearly man. He is the master

:26:17.:26:19.

at last. Goodbye.

Hazel Irvine presents live and uninterrupted coverage of the final day's play at the Masters at Augusta, where the world's best golfers are battling it out to claim the coveted green jacket.

The winner follows in the footsteps of some of the most illustrious names in golf - including legendary figures such as Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. While 59 of the previous 80 Masters titles have been won by golfers from the USA, there have been plenty of overseas winners in recent years, such as Australian Adam Scott in 2013 and Englishman Danny Willett in 2016.
