Security worker almost takes out Tiger Woods at Masters”

It's the first time three players have shot 64 or better in a single round of the Masters.The tournament record is 63.

Woods' third straight birdie came on a two-putt from 13 feet.

The third-round conditions were almost flawless with plenty of sunshine, very little wind and forgiving greens thanks to recent rain.

Cantlay, who began the day nine shots off the lead, moved to within a shot of a group of leaders who had yet to tee off when he finished.

Two holes after that, Woods got up and down for birdie at the par-5 15th, and then stuck his tee shot to 7 feet at the par-3 16th, which he also birdied.

The expected fireworks started early as one of the USA hopes Finau provided the main plot twist, racing to the top of leaderboard with a sparkling six-under 30 front nine featuring four birdies and an eagle. He moved up 43 spots on the leaderboard after beginning the day in a tie for 50th.

"The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount", said Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley in a press bulletin released Saturday afternoon.

After starting the day four strokes behind the five co-leaders, he jumped to 11 under par for the tournament.

Patrick Cantlay was one of the big movers so far during the third round.

Those good feelings didn't last long. He lined up his shot through trees and ended up on the green with a great shot.

Francisco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen all share the lead at seven under.

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.

Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Justin Harding and Xander Schauffele are all one shot back.
