Masters 2017: Leaderboard day 3

Charley Hoffman’s overnight advantage was wiped out as Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler and Thomas Pieters pegged him back for a four-way tie at the halfway stage of the Masters at Augusta.

Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose lead the way after three rounds at the Masters.

Rose’s 67 was the best of a day in which the Augusta National remained tough, despite the glorious weather. Five birdies in his last seven holes, and two in the last two, took Rose to six-under and handed the world No 14 a share of the 54-hole lead with Ryder Cup team-mate Sergio Garcia, who shot a 70.

Garcia, meanwhile, began the day in the leading group on four under and, despite struggling to find his rhythm for much of the round, ended with a 70 and six under alongside Rose.

Rickie Fowler is just behind on five under after carding a 71 on Saturday, while three players sit two shots behind the front two.

They include former leader Charley Hoffman, Ryan Moore and Jordan Spieth.

Spieth flew around Augusta, hitting an almost flawless 68. Other contenders under par include Adam Scott on three under and former champion Charl Schwartzel on two under.
