Molinari won’t look back as he takes on Tiger for Masters crown

Scott, the 2013 victor, shot even-par 72 to finish six shots behind Molinari while Day's 73 left him a shot further back. Eastern and CBS's TV coverage will begin at 9 a.m.

The 14-time major champion is now a 15-time major champion, winning the 2019 Masters by one stroke.

Friday's second round featured all the drama long associated with golf's undisputed superstar - whose four-under par 68 put him on six-under 138 and one shot behind a remarkable bunch of five current and former major champions sharing the lead on seven-under 137.

Woods is the most chiseled golfer at Augusta National and Finau is tall and powerful, leading the tournament in driving distance.

"I think 18 is a whole lot closer than people think", Koepka said.

"The only two bad putts I hit today were all on the same hole, over on eight, I three-putted".

Spieth and Jonas Blixt finished three shots off the pace in second as Watson completed a 69 to secure his second victory at Augusta in three years. Three players flirted with the course tournament record of 63 and came up a shot short.

Molinari was at 13-under 203. It was the double bogeys that cost him, and the Italian was gracious as ever in defeat.

Leaders at the conclusion of the 72nd hole will start on the 18th hole. "Great playing by @TigerWoods (at the) @TheMasters".

"But it's not like I can only worry about him".

"I was in front of a TV, for sure", Molinari said after building a two-shot lead. "But then again, the last two majors count for something. And now I'm the dad with two kids there".

What's more, another outbreak is ongoing in the New York county of Rockland, which is north of New York City. New Yorkers should call 311 to access a list of facilities that can provide MMR at low or no cost.

Molinari knows what kind of atmosphere Woods brings to a major.

Finau, aiming to become the fifth straight player to make the Masters his first major title, opened with three straight birdies.

Augusta National might sound different than a tough links along the North Sea of Scotland.

One of those occasions was at Augusta National, when Mickelson wore Masters green, alligator skin shoes with a matching belt. He was particularly happy to finish, especially after storms moved into the area and stopped play right after his tee shot into 5 feet on the unsafe par-3 12th.

"He (Woods) obviously loves this place and he's playing great golf", said Molinari.

He joined the chasing pack on a day when going neutral meant losing ground. The field combined to shoot 80-under on Saturday, the lowest in tournament history.

"Constantino has been a huge role model and a huge motivation", Molinari said. "But I holed some really good putts at 4 and 5 to save par". I just couldn't be more happy and more excited.

"Look, tomorrow is a very important day because there's no doubt someone in the top 15, or a few of them, are going to play very well", Scott said. He still managed to tie for 10th in his first Masters. All three days Woods has hit driver, starting off at the bunkers and trying to fade it into the fairway. "I like that it's going to be windy and tricky". Day also shot a 67. He was two-under on his day going to the par-three 12th, where he almost made a hole-in-one and tapped in from five inches for a birdie.

The crowd favors Woods.

Italian Molinari carded an error-free 67 for his best round in eight Masters that put the British Open champion in contention for a Green Jacket to go along with the Claret Jug he hoisted previous year. Molinari sees it another way.
