AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A brief look at the third round of the Masters on Saturday (all times EDT):

LEADING: Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth, at 5-under 211

JUST BEHIND: Matt Kuchar and Jonas Blixt, a shot back at 212.

ROOKIES RISE: Spieth and Blixt have a chance to become the first rookie to win the Masters since Fuzzy Zoeller won in 1979.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Kuchar’s chip from behind the green on No. 15 that settled a few feet from the hole for a birdie.

KEY STATISTIC: Fifteen players are within five shots of the lead.
