The Masters leader board was scrambled on Saturday, and when the third round concluded Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia shared the lead with Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, among others, in close pursuit.

Rose, the 36-year-old Englishman, shares the 54-hole lead at the Masters for the first time.

Garcia and Rose will play in the final group.

Garcia, 37, couldn't stop smiling during his winners speech after finally claiming his first major title at Augusta today.

There are wonderful story lines in a major championship.

Rose, who is looking to land his second major after winning the 2013 US Open, carded five birdies on the back nine in a round of 67, to stand on six under. A top-12 finish will earn him a spot in the Masters next year. Now, he's going for the green jacket. "I didn't know going into my first one if I would have five chances in my life", Spieth said.

"I was able to the hit some irons around the hole which gave me some opportunities and made a couple of putts when I needed to, a couple of breaks, par savers in there, and a couple of nice birdies". No player in the sport has been as good for as long as Garcia and not won a major, but he's still looking for his first. Rose is playing in the final group at the Masters for the second time in three years. Right ahead of them will be Fowler and Spieth, who are also good friends. Kuchar, who fired a five-under par 67 to finish tied for fourth at five-under 283, was celebrating the ace when he noticed a boy wearing a hat styled like that of PGA Tour-record 82-time victor Sam Snead, a button proclaiming he was a member of Arnie's Army in memory of the late Arnold Palmer, and a loud bright orange outfit matching the style of USA star Rickie Fowler.

"I tried to get cute with a bunker shot", McIlroy said. "It's fun when playing with one of your good buddies".

Ahmadinejad's firebrand style could prove appealing for hard-liners seeking a tough-talking candidate who can stand up to U.S. The council normally does not approve dissidents or women for the formal candidate list.

Jordan Spieth is in title contention for a fourth consecutive year at the Masters. He said he is not about to go down quietly.

"Yesterday I felt great coming off the round", Spieth said. "Yeah, I don't think I helped him whatsoever on the round". It's play aggressive or go home.

"Finishing fifth versus 10th doesn't mean much to me, so that frees me up a bit tomorrow".

On Saturday night a reporter reminded Garcia that Garcia's idol, the late Seve Ballesteros, would have turned 60 on Sunday.

Rickie Fowler is one back at -5. Garcia stretched the margin to two strokes with another birdie at the third, driving the ball just short to the green, pulling off a delicate chip and knocking in an 8-footer.

"This is a place I dearly love and would dearly love to be part of the history here". "Today I just kind of made some good par saves to keep the round going".

"At the end of the day, it comes down to myself", Garcia said. Spieth was 10 shots off the lead after the first round, but he backed up his 69 on Friday with a 68 on Saturday, which included five birdies and only one bogey.

But a bogey at 14 was followed by a tee shot that found water at the par-three 16th, where he eventually recorded a double bogey, and the American is level with Spieth and Ryan Moore (69) on four under.
