Masters Final Round Live Blog: 5-way tie for lead features Woods, D.J., Koepka


Francesco Molinari enters the final day of the 2019 Masters at 13-under and alone the lead.

In any other circumstance, the fact that the defending British Open champion is two shots up on the rest of the field would be lead storyline at Augusta National on Sunday.

But these are not “normal” circumstances. Not for the Masters, anyway. For one, play was pushed up several hours Sunday because of stormy weather forecast for the afternoon.

The golfers are going out in threesomes from holes No. 1 and No. 10 starting at 7:30 a.m. ET. The national CBS telecast begins at 9 a.m. (And that means no CBS Sunday Morning).

Even the traditional green jacket ceremony was affected, as it now will not take place on the terrace putting green.

Oh, and that guy Tiger Woods? He is one of the two golfers tied for second place two shots back of Molinari and has turned back the clock about 15 years.

So, get your coffee and chow down on an order of hash browns scattered, smothered, covered and chunked. And then and settle in for a great Sunday of golf.

You will have plenty of company.

And with Brady, you get to keep the hash browns all to yourself.

Updates

1:28 p.m.: Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka moves into a five-way tie for the lead at 12-under. They join Tiger Woods, Francesco Molinari and  Xander Schauffele.

1:04 p.m.: Tiger Woods and Francesco Molinari are back into a share the lead – this time time with Xander Schauffele – at 12-under. Both Woods and Molinari birdied the 13th.

12:57 p.m.: We have two new leaders — Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele. After making the cut at +2, Cantlay rampaged through the third round with a 64 and now leads by one after an eagle on No. 15. He was put in that position thanks to Francesco Molinari, who rinsed his tee shot at No. 12 and took a double-bogey at that hole.

12:11 p.m.: Francesco Molinari extends his lead back to two shots after Tiger Woods posts his third bogey of the final round. Molinari (-13) saved par at 10, while Woods (-11) bogeyed after having to punch out from the pine straw after his ball was lodged just beneath a Magnolia tree. Brook Koepka is also at 11-under.

11:59 a.m.: Francesco Molinari leads Tiger Woods by one shot after nine holes. It is just before noon on the East Coast. Woods rolled a 70-foot birdie putt to 12 inches shy of the hole and took a par save on No. 9. He went out in 35 and is 12-under overall. Meanwhile, Molinari pars the ninth to stay at 13-under.

11:37 a.m.: And just like that, Francesco Molinari extends his lead back to two shots with a birdie on No. 8. For about 90 seconds. Then Woods keeps pace with a birdie of his own. Molinary by one.

11:23 a.m.: In another “major” development, Brooks Koepka is just one shot back of Francesco Molinari through eight holes and tied with Tiger Woods in second place. Koepka is aiming for his fourth major championship in the past 22 months (2017 U.S. Open, 2018 U.S. Open, 2018 PGA Championship). Koepka held off Woods at Bellerive on Sunday for that third major last August.

11:18 a.m.: Tiger Woods (-11) cuts it to one with a birdie on No. 7 as Francesco Molinari (-12) falls back one after his first birdie in 50 holes at Augusta.

11:14 a.m.: Here kitty, kitty …

11:09 a.m.: Is this even allowed?

10:59 a.m.: Tiger Woods rolls a birdie attempt to the left on the par-3, No. 6, leaving a shot on the board and failing to pick up a gimme on Molinari.

10:47 a.m.: Francesco Molinari has played even par through five, but his playing partners Tony Finau and Tiger Woods have each lost a stroke. So the defending British Open champion is up by three.

10:15 a.m.: Lefty nabs three birdies in four holes and just misses a fifth on No. 6. He’s 8-under overall.

9:52 a.m.: It can only get better from here, right?

9:45 a.m.: Bryson dials it in. And Lefty being Lefty on Masters Sunday.

7:32 a.m.: We’re off. Hope y’all got plenty of coffee and biscuits.

7:14 a.m.: There will be no outdoors Green Jacket Ceremony on the terrace putting green today in order to expedite gate closures as the End of Days Storm approaches.

7 a.m.: Good morning, golf world.

It’s Sunday morning at the Masters. An historic day awaits.

In the meantime, break down these pin locations.
