Joining him in the last group will be Woods, who also paired with the Italian in the final round at Carnoustie, after the American electrified Augusta National with a five-under 67 that put him on the brink of ending a 11-year majors drought.

All 14 of Woods' major victories have come with at least a share of the 54-hole lead, but that stat discounts the fact that several times, he trailed in a final round before rallying.

As he contemplates the last day of battle, and the chance to win at the age of 43, a decade since he won major number 14, Woods can do no better than follow the example of his great rival for the notional title as the best player of them all. He gave one shot back with a bogey at No. 9 to finish with at 1-under par for the front nine. After a flawless opening round, Koepka had two bogeys and a double in his first six holes on Friday but the twice U.S. Open champion was able to regain his composure, steadying himself with six straight pars from the ninth.

"I just kind of had a talk with myself going back to seven tee thinking about all my bad shots this week have been just some poor thinking and not being really committed to what I chose to do", said Simpson. His worst putt of the day, ironically, led to a birdie.

But he missed a 5-footer for par at the fifth; three-putted the eighth to bogey a par-5; had it to 5 feet after an excellent approach at the par-3 12th and failed to convert.

"I just did everything, " he said.

138: Dustin Johnson (USA) 68, 70, Justin Harding (RSA) 69, 69, Xander Schauffele (USA) 73, 65, Tiger Woods (USA) 70, 68. Maybe he needed Augusta National's elders to shock the world and turn this event on its head.

Italy's Francesco Molinari (-13) held a two-short lead after the third round Saturday.

Two minutes before walking from the putting green to the first tee for the Masters on Thursday, Jason Day attempted an athletic move that apparently surpassed a recommended degree of difficulty for even a well-conditioned athlete. Until now, Finau was best known at Augusta for dislocating his ankle a year ago while celebrating an ace in the par-3 tournament that precedes the Masters.

Because of the possibility of inclement weather, the Masters has announced that the final round has been moved up and will start at 9 a.m. Sunday on CBS.

Scott, tied for the lead with Day and three other players at 7-under heading into the round, briefly took the outright lead after birdieing the first hole.

Woods' birdie at the 11th - the only one there all day - seemed to spark him, as he then hit his tee shot stiff at the 12th, only to have the horn blow stopping play due to a unsafe weather situation.
