SPLASH, SPLASH

Just like that, we have a new leader at the Masters.

Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera, playing in the final group, knocked back-to-back shots into the creek at No. 13.

The miscue was particularly damaging to Cabrera, who was leading the tournament by a stroke. About the time he was hitting his fourth shot from the drop area, Jason Day rolled in a birdie putt at the 14th. When Cabrera made bogey, Day claimed the lead at 8 under.

Cabrera and Adam Scott are one shot behind, and keep an eye on Tiger Woods. He’s making a late charge.

THUNDERBEAR

There are some great nicknames on display at the Masters.

The leader, Angel Cabrera, is known as “El Pato” (The Duck). Then there’s Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, whose name translates to “Thunderbear.”

Olesen’s first name is Jacob but he switched to using one of his middle names because it’s more unique. He’s creating quite a bit of noise in the final round at Augusta National, 5 under on the day with one hole to play.

It might not be quite enough. Olesen is three strokes behind Cabrera.

THE DUCK

There’s been a steady rain since the leaders teed off at the Masters.
