Adam Scott takes a risk and it pays off with Masters lead

Tiger Woods has his left ankle clipped after a Masters security guard lost his footing on wet grass at Augusta National

Tiger Woods briefly claimed a share of the Master lead, only to have Francesco Molinari grab it all to himself a few minutes later.

The 43-year-old Woods, who won his last Masters in 2005, turned back the clock with four birdies in his final 10 holes on Friday, thrilling the Augusta National crowds with a handful of big putts and some vintage fist pumps.

BUNCHED UP: Molinari is the reigning British Open champion, and there are four major champions within five shots of the lead.

Wise got hot on the back nine, posting birdies on par-3 12th, par-5 13th and par-4 14th holes and then on the par-3 16th to put him a 3-under par for his round.

World number 12 Woods has never won a major when he was not at least sharing the lead entering the final round.

Ryder Cup team-mate Tyrrell Hatton reacts to Francesco Molinari's unbelievable record of just one bogey in 54 holes with a video of a shocked audience member from Australia's Got Talent and three applause emojis.

"After three knee surgeries and four back surgeries, I'm great", Woods said.

With bad weather rolling towards Augusta on Sunday afternoon, the US Masters leaders will now begin their final round tomorrow at 2.20pm Irish time.

He almost holed a 4-iron on the par-5 eighth on his way to a record-tying 30 on the front nine that sent him to his 64.

"I do think that's nice not waiting around till 3 o'clock to tee off, kind of twiddling your thumbs", Finau said.

With birdies flying all over the place, Tiger Woods has been passed up.

Molinari is trying to win his second major in two years after winning the 2018 British Open.

In golf, Saturday is known as Moving Day. Play begins at 7:30 a.m. ET with the televised broadcast window beginning at 9 a.m. and the 54-hole leaders taking the course shortly thereafter.

Chinese star Li did not play his best, but still managed to advance into next round after scoring a 146 after two rounds. "So just need to go out there and hopefully they can see something on the board where it'll make them a little nervous".

Koepka, who does not have a top-10 finish in three previous starts at the Masters and missed the event in 2018 due to a wrist injury, was chugging along at one-under on the day when he stepped up to the par-five 15th and gave his Green Jacket hopes a boost.

With storms forecast, tee times for the final round were moved up almost six hours and players will go off in threesomes off the first and 10th tees.

Day also shot a 67.

"I thought if I just get the speed a little bit better than I did yesterday, they're going to start going in".

Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau started Friday with a one-shot lead.
