Masters Final-round Live Blog

UPDATE No. 55 (7:15 p.m. ET): Whether he wins or loses, remember this putt from Sergio.

UPDATE No. 54 (6:57 p.m. ET): Oh boy.

UPDATE No. 53 (6:55 p.m. ET): Par for Garcia, Bogey for Rose. We are tied at 9 under heading to the 72nd.

UPDATE No. 52 (6:46 p.m. ET): We could be heading back to a tie going to the 72nd hole.

UPDATE No. 51 (6:35 p.m. ET): Wow. Justin Rose hits it to 8 feet at 16, and Garcia responds by knocking it to 6. Rose makes, Garcia misses and Rose leads by one at 10 under.

UPDATE No. 50 (6:30 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia eagles No. 15 after he nearly holed his 2nd shot using an 8-iron. His 15-foot putt left him at 9-under. Justin Rose, meanwhile, made his birdie putt to tie Garcia.

UPDATE No. 49 (6:28 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia eagles No. 15 after he nearly holed in on his 2nd shot using an 8-iron. His 15-foot putt left him at 9-under. Justin Rose, meanwhile, made his birdie putt to tie Garcia.

UPDATE No. 48 (6:21 p.m. ET):  It appears Justin Rose may be  dealing with some sort of a back issue on No. 15. He has had back problems in the past.

UPDATE No. 47 (6:19 p.m. ET):  Good question.

UPDATE No. 46 (6:16 p.m. ET):  Sergio Garcia cuts Justin Rose’s lead to one shot after his birdie on No. 14.

UPDATE No. 45 (6:12 p.m. ET):  Thomas Pieters closes No. 18 with par, missing a chance to earn a tie for second place. He is done for the day at five under for the tournament.

UPDATE No. 44 (6:00 p.m. ET):  Justin Rose misses out on a chance to go up three shots after going left from about four feet out on No. 13. Meanwhile, Sergio Garcia had a monstrous par save. Rose remains two shots up at 8-under as the leaders tee off on No. 14.

UPDATE No. 43 (5:59 p.m. ET):  Rory McIlroy finishes at 3 under and will not win the Masters this time, either.

UPDATE No. 42 (5:53 p.m. ET):  Major swing on No. 13. Sergio Garcia had to take a drop and trails by two, taking his fourth shot, after holding a three-shot lead on No. 5.

UPDATE No. 41 (5:48 p.m. ET):  Matt Kuchar pars No. 18 to finish at five-under after being even on No. 11. He is sticking around just in case.

UPDATE No. 40 (5:31 p.m. ET): Rose is now two ahead of Garcia (who bogeys No. 11) and … Thomas Pieters, who just birdied 15 for four straight to move within two.

UPDATE No. 39 (5:24 p.m. ET): Thomas Pieters is now just three back, too, after rolling in his third straight birdie. He’s now 5 under and just three back now. Schwartzel is, too!

UPDATE No. 38 (5:20 p.m. ET): Matt Kuchar hole-in-one at 16! What a moment! He’s just three back now at 5 under.

UPDATE No. 37 (5:13 p.m. ET): Garcia bogeys No. 10 and Rose moves into a one-shot lead at 8 under.

UPDATE No. 36 (5:12 p.m. ET): Wow. Jordan Spieth returns to No. 12 in a final round and dumps his ball in the water. Oof. He makes double bogey and his demons there continue. He’s now 1 over and nine back.

UPDATE No. 35 (5:10 p.m. ET): Thomas Pieters misses a mid-range eagle putt, but makes a significant comebacker at 13 to go birdie-birdie to move to 4 under. He’s only four back…

UPDATE No. 34 (5:00 p.m. ET): Pars for both at No. 9 and we start the back nine dead even. Garcia and Rose are both 8 under.

UPDATE No. 33 (4:40 p.m. ET): This is stunning. Justin Rose birdies three straight, rolling in a slippery 15-footer down the hill at No. 8 to move to 8 under. Garcia can’t get a 7-footer to drop for birdie, and three holes after Garcia led by three, we are tied.

UPDATE No. 32 (4:22 p.m. ET): Well this has turned quickly. Two holes ago, Justin Rose was three back, now he’s within one. Rose goes birdie-birdie at Nos. 6 and 7 and moves to 7 under. Garcia just gets his par putt at the seventh to fall in to stay in the solo lead. The pair are separating from the pack, third place is 4 under.

UPDATE No. 31 (4:11 p.m. ET): Justin Rose birdies No. 6 and that moves him to 6 under and within two.

UPDATE No. 30 (4:05 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth bogeys No. 6, and he’s now six back at 2 under.

UPDATE No. 29 (4:01 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia makes a simple par, two-putting from 43 feet, at No. 5. And now he’s three shots ahead as Justin Rose three-putts from 69 feet to fall to 5 under. That green jacket is in sight for Sergio.

UPDATE No. 28 (3:53 p.m. ET): Yeah Stew!

UPDATE No. 27 (3:50 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth has hit the edge of the hole on Nos. 3 and 5, but both putts have dropped. He’s hanging in there five back at 3 under.

UPDATE No. 26 (3:40 p.m. ET): Garcia pars No. 4 and he’s looking steady.

UPDATE No. 25 (3:30 p.m. ET): Fowler bogeys No. 4 and he goes from one to three back within about 10 minutes.

UPDATE No. 24 (3:26 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia is looking REALLY GOOD now. He comes right back from that short miss by birdieing the third. That moves him to 8 under and two ahead.

UPDATE No. 23 (3:21 p.m. ET): As soon as we say that, Fowler birdies No. 3 to move to 6 under. He’s within one.

UPDATE No. 22 (3:20 p.m. ET): All the lead groups are struggling. Spieth bogeys No. 3 to fall back to 3 under. Once again four behind.

UPDATE No. 21 (3:16 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia misses a 5-footer for birdie at the second and it would’ve moved him two ahead, as Rose missed an even shorter birdie putt. Garcia (-7) and Rose (-6) still. Some early nerves.

UPDATE No. 20 (3:10 p.m. ET): Martin Kaymer birdies Nos. 9-13 to move to 5 under for the day. That’s five straight birdies. He’s now 1 under overall and six back, but he likely doesn’t have enough holes left to have a chance.

UPDATE No. 19 (3:05 p.m. ET): Good on ya, Jordan. Spieth birdies No. 2 with a magnificent sandy, and he’s back to 4 under and within three.

UPDATE No. 18 (3:01 p.m. ET): Couples is hanging right in there. Freddie birdies the eighth to move to 3 under for the day and 2 under overall. Five back and T-8.

UPDATE No. 17 (2:58 p.m. ET): Sergio Garcia looks GOOD. Beautiful drive at the first and he stuffs his approach from 133 yards to 5 feet. He drains that putt for birdie to move to 7 under and one ahead. Justin Rose needed to hole a clutch 6-foot par putt to stay within one, but he did.

UPDATE No. 16 (2:50 p.m. ET): Not the start Spieth’s looking for. A drive in the right bunker, a miss short and a 5-footer that doesn’t drop. Bogey to start pushes him back to 3 under and three back.

UPDATE No. 15 (2:44 p.m. ET): McIlroy bogeys the par-3 fourth and falls back to even par, that’s six back.

UPDATE No. 14 (2:37 p.m. ET): McIlroy pars No. 3 and he’s still 1 under. Not a bad spot, but he can’t delay birdies too much longer.

UPDATE No. 13 (2:25 p.m. ET): Russell Henley, ladies and gentlemen. He’s now even par for the tournament after birdieing the seventh as well.

UPDATE No. 12 (2:12 p.m. ET): McIlroy follows up that drive with a solid second into the middle front of the green. He lags from long range to within a foot and that’s a birdie to move to 1 under.

UPDATE No. 11 (2:09 p.m. ET): McIlroy pars No. 1 and then launches a drive 387 yards right own the fairway at the par-5 second. Wow.

UPDATE No. 10 (2:06 p.m. ET): Couples bogeyed the third, but he followed up with a birdie on No. 4 to move back to 1 under. Boom Boom is not backing down.

UPDATE No. 9 (1:38 p.m. ET): Freddie Couples has started birdie-birdie in the final round. Oh, man. That puts him 1 under and five back.

UPDATE No. 8 (1:29 p.m. ET): Marc Leishman makes it a second eagle hole-out in two days at No. 7.  He’s now 2 under on his round through 15 holes and 7 over for the tournament.

UPDATE No. 7 (1:25 p.m. ET): Well that was short-lived. Mickelson double bogeys the third for the second straight day, and he’s back to 2 over.

UPDATE No. 6 (1:08 p.m. ET): Phil! Mickelson eagles the second after rolling in an 11-footer to move back to even par. Hey, Lefty’s just six back now.

UPDATE No. 5 (12:50 p.m. ET): Steele birdies the seventh, and he’s now 4 under on his round and 2 over for the tournament. That’s a nice little roll right there. He’s now T-21. If he keeps on this pace, Steele could sneak into the top 10.

UPDATE No. 4 (12:07 p.m. ET): Some early starts of note. Brendan Steele and Matt Fitzpatrick both birdie their first three holes to move to 3 over. Both are now nine back and T-27.

UPDATE No. 3 (11:37 a.m. ET): You should watch this Tiger video.

UPDATE No. 2 (11:08 a.m. ET): Louis Oosthuizen birdies the second hole to move to 7 over. That’s not an albatross, but still. No early moves of note thus far, but nobody in contention has teed off yet.

UPDATE No. 1 (9:51 a.m. ET): Pin positions for Sunday.
