Augusta, GA (Sports Network) - Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera posted matching rounds of 3-under 69 on Saturday to grab a share of the lead after three rounds of the 77th Masters.
Snedeker claimed his seventh PGA Tour win earlier this year at Pebble Beach. Cabrera owns two PGA Tour victories, the 2009 Masters and 2007 U.S. Open Championship. The duo stands atop the leaderboard at 7-under-par 209.
Adam Scott, who bogeyed the last four holes to lose the British Open last summer, is alone in third place at minus-6. The Australian also shot a 69 in round three.
Jason Day, the second-round leader, bogeyed the final two holes to slide into a share of fourth place at 5-under 211. He stands alongside fellow Australian Marc Leishman, who posted an even-par 72 on Saturday at Augusta National.
There are three Australians in the top five. They are hoping to break the streak of no Australian winner of this tournament.
Matt Kuchar posted a 3-under 69 to move into sixth place at minus-4.
Tiger Woods overcame a 2-stroke penalty before his round to card a 2-under 70. That moved him to 3-under 213. Without the penalty, Woods would be tied for fourth at minus-5.
As it stands, Woods shares seventh place with Tim Clark, whose 67 was the low round of the day Saturday.
Defending champion Bubba Watson, playing alone in the first group, carded a 2- under 70 to get to 2-over 218 through 54 holes.
Phil Mickelson stumbled to a 5-over 77 to slide to plus-8 for the tournament and Keegan Bradley struggled to a 10-over 82 and fell to 12-over 228 overall.
