His worst finish is a tie for 11th in 2017.

Tony Finau is also in the mix among the leaders at the Masters. 1 and 10) starting at 7:30 a.m. ET.

"There's nothing better than having a chance going into the weekend at the Masters", Mickelson said.

Now comes the weekend, and it certainly has the potential to be a classic Masters finish.

But back at the 14th hole, Molinari made an 8-foot putt for his third straight birdie, pushing his score to 12 under, and Woods into a tie for second with players still on the course.

Woods, apparently, was not seriously hurt - he drained that aforementioned putt to move to 5 under for the tournament which, at the time, was just two shots off the lead.

Woods hopped out of the way, winced and repeatedly flexed his ankle, and then poured in another putt.

Four More U.S. Storms to Close Out April
Brainerd had 15 inches of snow April 10, 2008; 6.3 inches of snow April 11, 2013; and 3.5 inches of snow April 12, 1983. Another storm is expected to move into the region Friday, but the path of the storm is uncertain, Sanders said .


His five putts made from beyond 20 feet over two days are two more than any rival.

The 43-year-old American superstar fired a dramatic four-under par 68 to share sixth place on six-under 138 through 36 holes, one stroke behind a record Masters lead logjam of five co-leaders - all of them major winners - on seven-under 137.

Any other time, a hobbled Day might have might have been the story after getting up off the deck to shoot five-under 67.

Four-time victor Woods rolled in a 7-foot birdie putt at the 16th, sending roars cascading across Augusta National as he moved to 11-under for the tournament.

In the latest weather forecast issued by the tournament, a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms - with potential for heavy rain and strong winds - is expected to reach the Augusta area at approximately 4 p.m. before pushing East by 7 p.m. Winds will increase ahead of the storms, with gusts expected to reach 25-30 miles per hour later in the day.

He sent his tee shot on No. 2 way to the right and into the trees, setting off a tough chain of shots that eventually resulted in a double bogey.He recovered with a birdie on No. 3, but the inconsistent play has kept him away from the top of the leaderboard.
