Aussies Masters dream

Monday, April 14, 2014

AUGUSTA, Georgia - Australia's odds of keeping the green jacket have lengthened but the dream isn't quite over after Adam Scott and John Senden battled hard during the third round of the Masters.

With the famous greens getting harder and faster by the second at Augusta National, the Australian duo dropped down the leaderboard but remain in the mix if they can find some Sunday magic.

Senden fired a three-over-par 75 to drop to one-under-par for the week, falling from second outright to a tie for 10th, but just four shots off the lead.

Defending champion Scott struggled royally to a four-over 76, dropping him from a tie for third into a share of 16th at one-over.

Young American phenom Jordan Spieth, in his first Masters at just 20 years of age, signed for a two-under 70 to take the lead at five-under.

The Texan is looking to become the first debut winner since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979 and the youngest ever winner of the green jacket, besting Tiger Woods' effort as a 21-year-old in 1997.

Overnight leading American and 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson joined Spieth at the top, dropping back into a tie after a 74.

American Matt Kuchar (68) and Swede Jonas Blixt (71) will attempt to capture their first major title from a shot back at four-under, tied third.

Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez produced the round of the tournament with a 66 to move into a tie for fifth with American Ricky Fowler (67).

"I just kind of compounded my mistakes early with a couple three-putts and got me off on the wrong foot," Scott said.
