Garcia, who once complained the golf gods conspired against him when he lost a playoff in the 2012 British Open, had the gods on his side Saturday in Amen Corner. We will have the final pairing of Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia tied atop the leaderboard at -6. Not since a storm-struck Masters 44 years ago ended in a Monday finish had so many people shared the midway lead.
LEADING Justin Rose (67) and Sergio Garcia (70) were at 6-under 210. The 18th played the most hard in round three with Justin Rose making one of just five birdies, with 16 bogeys and two doubles leading to an average of 4.283. He's been in the top four entering the final day of the Masters four consecutive years, which is unprecedented.
SHOT OF THE DAY Spieth hit a 5-iron off the pine straw and over the tributary of Rae's Creek on the par-5 13th to 30 feet.
Jordan Spieth is playing in his fourth Masters and never has finished worse than second place.
World No.6 and 2015 Masters victor Jordan Spieth suffered a bogey on his opening hole and has dropped another to slump to two under.
Next is Spieth, who opened with 75. I was on the cut line after the first round, I knew that. Here's what to know about the top seven, and remember, Sunday's coverage on CBS begins at 1 p.m. ET. Spieth could punch out and lay up, leaving a wedge shot that he'd have to execute perfectly to secure a birdie.
"New experience for me coming from behind on Sunday at the Masters, which is kind of fun to say", Spieth said. You still have to play smart when you have to.
He believes it will be a thinking-man's game Sunday, particularly on the back nine.
He didn't do anything special except to birdie all the par 5s to offset a few miscues in his round of 71. Moments later, he realised the ball bounced softly enough off the side of the bank to stop halfway down. "You can make birdies, eagles, bogeys". "Because it gives you the possibility of getting a break like that".
Garcia and Rose will play in the final group.

The site where the "mother of all bombs" was dropped on an ISIS complex in Afghanistan. The GPS-guided explosive was dropped via an Lockheed MC-130 transport plane.
Fowler was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the third round started Saturday. Fowler and Spieth in the penultimate group.
"I think it's going to be a long, hard-fought day", Fowler said. "I don't think anyone will put themselves too far out in front where they can cruise in".
If Spieth wins after trailing by 10 after 18 holes, it would be the best 54-hole victory fightback in Masters history. He almost holed a wedge from the fairway on the 15th for another birdie and wound up with a 68. He had a two-shot lead with 11 holes to play in his debut in 2014 before Bubba Watson overtook him.
"Waking up and you have a chance to win your favorite tournament that you've dreamt of winning and competing in since you were a kid, and to be able to have your fourth opportunity now". I needed to get into the red. He's tied with Ryan Moore and Charley Hoffman, who led after the first round and shared the lead after two. Spieth remained at even par through two holes. He played 1 under the rest of the way, though he still was 10 shots worse than his score on Thursday.
Adam Scott of Australia, the 2013 champion, posted a second straight 69 and is three back in solo seventh, one shot ahead of 2011 Masters champ Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, who had a 68.
"Obviously I would like to be deep in the red, but one under is pretty good", said Westwood, who finished tied second with Spieth previous year.
Northern Irishman McIlroy, a four-time major champion trying to complete a career grand slam by winning the Masters, close with a bogey to shoot 73 Friday.
Lee Westwood (68) moved to one under while Rory McIlroy (71) is level par. He was six shots behind.
The former will be ruing a double bogey on the 16th hole, after finding water, which prevented him from ending the day with a share of the lead.
