Saturday morning in Augusta, Georgia, can only mean one thing: It’s time for moving day at the Masters.

As the GOLF gang headed to “the National” for round 3, the gang still had lots of questions about the leaderboard. Our team started their morning at the Waffle House, where executive editor Alan Bastable sat down with amateur Neal Shipley earlier in the week.

Shipley is the only amateur to survive the 36-hole cut this week, meaning he will be in Butler Cabin Sunday evening as the Masters low amateur. Are we saying his breakfast with Bastable led to it? No, but you are thinking it.

He’ll finish his week with a final-round pairing with Tiger Woods.

One thing Dylan Dethier wondered about is the conditions for the third round. With high winds on the tail end of the front that moved through Wednesday night and Thursday morning, many players have said Augusta is playing as difficult as ever. Sean Zak said with lighter winds Saturday, the pressure could be on to score.

As the round got underway, it became apparent Woods’ Masters would not end in a sixth green jacket. He shot a Masters career-high 82.

“He’s only played 72 holes in a major once in the last four years,” Dethier said. “So it toggles really quickly from, ‘Oh man, nice birdie for Tiger at 5. I wonder if he can top-20, top-10?’

“Then he goes bogey-double-double, and you’re like, ‘Hope he can walk four rounds.'”

As we get to the leaders of the tournament, third-round co-leader Bryson DeChambeau seemed to be fading fast on the back nine before he “redeemed” himself, according to James Colgan, by holing out from the fairway for birdie at 18.

“Just figured it was easier than putting,” DeChambeau joked after the round.

Ludvig Aberg is impressing in his first ever major. He’ll start the final round four-under, three back of the lead.

Max Homa is two back, despite not making any birdies.

“I came here with the gratitude and appreciation that I get to do it,” Homa said. “I’m happy I get to do it tomorrow. I’m going to remind myself I’m a dog and I’m ready for this moment.”

Dethier was convinced Collin Morikawa was “not in form” coming into the day. Then he birdied his first three holes and stayed at six under to go into the final round one back.

But everyone is chasing World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. The 2022 Masters winner rebounded from making double bogey on 10 and bogey on 11 with an eagle on 13.

“He enters the 54-hole leader anyway,” Colgan said. “And the scary part is it feels like he hasn’t had his best stuff this week.”

The final round is upon us, folks: Let’s go! To catch up on all the GOLF team’s activities in Augusta, check out the full video above — and stay tuned for more Seen & Heard throughout the week.
