Playing in front of Mickelson, Hanson said he could hear the roars. But he didn’t fold. He made four birdies over the last five holes to take the lead. He has never been closer than seven shots of the leaders in his previous 17 majors.

The winner at the Masters has come from the final group in 19 of the last 21 years.

Hanson knows controlling his shots will clearly be key. But the 34-year-old Swede also knows there’s more to it than that.

“Emotions, of course,” he said. “That’s going to be the biggest thing. This is kind of a new situation to me, being in the spotlight like this, and playing the last group. So it’s going to be about controlling my emotions and trying to be in the present and trying to play the same kind of golf that I’ve been doing today.”
