Jamie Squire Getty Images Patrick Reed chips in for an eagle on the 15th green during the third round of the Masters
Woods bogeyed the first hole.
Spieth was happy to be near the top after the way he started - a tee shot into the trees on the right and a three putts for a double bogey, and then a drive to the left and three more putts for a bogey.
Woods said he's "just kind of gradually working on it, gradually building", adding, "I'm getting there".
Reed's wife, Justine, who used to caddie for her husband, had always told Reed to hit 3-wood on that hole. How far can emotion carry Reed?
Reed (14-under) responded with little more than a shrug. On Friday, Reed misplayed a shot, which led to an audible curse word being shouted for all live television viewers to hear.
He went from being linked to Tiger Woods, who was just a whisker younger when he won his first Masters as a 21-year-old in 1997, to being paired forever with Norman, who infamously blew a six-shot lead on Sunday with a final-round 78 in 1996, arguably the biggest choke job in golf history.
So it wasn't easy out there. "Just came out and tried to play some golf".
"All the pressure is on him tomorrow, " McIlroy said. Woods played exactly like someone who hadn't played at the Masters because of injury since 2015.
With three streaks of three consecutive birdies, Reed dazzled windy, crusty Augusta National with a 6-under-par 66 and took a two-stroke lead at the halfway point of the Masters. He cooled until the end of his round, when a pair of birdies over the last two holes gave him a 65 and left him five shots behind. Spieth settled for a quadruple-bogey 7 and lost his lead to Danny Willett. "You know, trying to not allow the moment to take over me", Reed said to media after round three. "He's got a lot of support here, and I'm hoping to come in and spoil the party".
But not everyone started so strong.
Instead, the novelty of being without a constantly-updating phone heightened the experience.Sure, there were roars attached to birdies and eagles that I never saw, but that was made up for by the excitement of scoreboard watching. 13 and 15, and posted a 74 to remain in the hunt.
And as you start hitting solid shot after solid shot, your confidence grows and grows, just like it did for Reed, McIlroy, Fowler and Rahm.
"Patrick is going for his first", McIlroy said, pausing for effect, "and I'm going for something else". And then being a little lucky like with the chip-in on eight, and hitting the flag stick on 13 (after going in the water). "I can go out and sort of free wheel, which is a great position". McIlroy needs a win at the Masters to be the sixth person ever to complete the career grand slam.
T6. Tommy Fleetwood (-6): After a four-birdie, four-bogey, even-par 72 on Thursday followed by a three-birdie, three-bogey even-par 72 on Friday, Fleetwood caught fire coming down the second nine.
As Reed made his move, the discourse on Twitter only grew worse. Bubba Watson fired a 69 to move to 2 under.
"Probably traffic last night".
Reed finished runner-up to Thomas at Quail Hollow a year ago.
Sunday's setting will be much different than the context of global Cup competition in which Reed has excelled.
While Woods, searching for a first major triumph since 2008, continues to shake off years of competitive rust, his "where there's will, there's a way to win" attitude remains intact. He said he has to shoot two rounds in the mid-60's, while a bunch of really good golfers fall apart. Only it was during the winter months and a completely different golf course than it is in early April.
"Apparently my iron play", said Fleetwood, whose proximity to the hole with his approach shots Saturday improved by 16 feet from the previous round. "Fairways were softer, so the ball wasn't running". "I remember having to hit a hybrid club into the green on No. 11".
Rusty's Forecast - Record cold on the way tonight!
The storm will be well east of any interstate heading back to MI from the favorite spring break areas by Sunday morning. The system we have been monitoring is moving across the state and is carrying with it a lot of Pacific moisture.
Talking Points From Day 2 Of The Masters
Left-hander Mickelson was only one off the lead when his drive found the pine straw under the trees at the uphill par-four ninth. Reed is not going to fall apart, but it is unlikely that he will be able to match the 66 he shot on Friday.
