Masters tee times moved up Sunday due to weather

Francesco Molinari surged two shots clear at the top of the Masters leaderboard on Saturday to set up another final round showdown with Tiger Woods for a major title.

On the same hole, Woods made a conventional birdie-4 to take the outright lead for the first time.

All of Woods' 14 major victories have come from at least a share of the 54-hole lead and the 43-year-old admitted there was pressure trying to win one from behind. He's at 13 under par and two strokes ahead of Woods.

Finau equalled the all-time Masters scoring record on the first nine, helped by a magnificent 2nd shot at the par five eighth that left him with a tap-in eagle, leaving him in a tie with Woods for second.

Sporting a red mock turtleneck in a nod to his last win at Augusta in 2005, and chewing gum throughout, Woods maintained his cushion to edge world No.2 Dustin Johnson, three-time major champion Brooks Koepka and another American Xander Schauffele.

Finau, aiming to become the fifth straight player to make the Masters his first major title, opened with three straight birdies.

A severe weather forecast for Sunday afternoon has prompted Masters officials to move up the tee times for the final round at Augusta National. The leaders - Francesco Molinari, Tony Finau and Tiger Woods - are scheduled to tee off at 9:20 a.m. In 2017 at the Masters Woods wasn't in the field and was telling people he thought his playing career was over due to the back issues that plagued him for years.

Italian Molinari carded an error-free 67 for his best round in eight Masters that put the British Open champion in contention for a Green Jacket to go along with the Claret Jug he hoisted a year ago.

Tiger Woods only one back as five share halfway lead at Augusta
After a flawless opening round, Koepka had two bogeys and a double in his first six holes on Friday but the twice U.S. Rose, Garcia and Willett, at four-over-par 148, missed by one stroke, while Schwartzel was two shots over the line.

The inaugural Women's Amateur championship marked another major breakthrough at Augusta National, with its long-standing reputation as a haven for rich, white, well-connected men.

He methodically rolled in putts of six, eight and nine feet to birdie the next three - and maintained his two-shot edge by getting up and down for par from a bunker at 18.

"I just need a decent, solid round tomorrow [Saturday]". He started the day at 2-over par and tied for 50th.

"I got some good numbers into greens and felt like I'd swung well all day but I didn't see too many pins I could attack out there", Scott said.

Woods, who entered the week an incredible 156 under on the par 5s for his career (he's a cumulative 68 over on the other holes), has had to spread his efforts around. Only the Players' Championship and U.S. Open will pay out more to their respective winners during the 2019 PGA Tour season.

"I know I can play this golf course, just this week I have not played it well enough".

"I made sure that I had those type of looks, and if I gave myself those looks the way that I'm hitting my lines, I'm going to be all right".
