MASTERS WATCH: Tiger drought
Jason Day is three holes away from becoming the first Australian to win the green jacket.
With a tap-in birdie at the 15th hole, Day stretched his lead at the Masters to two strokes.
The Aussies even have a couple of backup plans should Day falter.
Adam Scott is two strokes behind, Marc Leishman is three back.
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.
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.
