Masters two thousand sixteen: Jordan Spieth leads despite sorry finish to third circular

Jordan Spieth won his personal duel with Rory McIlroy but a sorry finish to his third circular Saturday left the eightieth U. S. Masters wide open.

Spieth'south one-over par seventy-three for three-under two hundred thirteen easily bettered playing partner McIlroy, who struggled to a five-over seventy-seven without a birdie on his card for the first time in eightieth rounds at majors.

Unless he can produce a very special final round, McIlroy will have to wait to win the career grand slam, while 22-year-old Spieth is still well-placed to win his third major, leading by a shot despite finishing bogey-double bogey.

"It wasn't ideal having climbed back nicely to obtain to two-under for the day, I just got really wayward," Spieth admitted.

His closest rival is 24-year-old fellow American Smylie Kaufman, who produced a best-of-the-day sixty-nine for two-under 214.

Only a bogey five on the final hole prevented Langer from being tied for second and the chance to play with the boss in the final pairing.

"It can happen in the game of golf. There aren't many other sports it could happen, but in this sport a lot of things are possible," he told BBC Sport.

Langer was later joined on one-under by Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, who might've taken closer order but for successive three putts to destroy his challenge.

Three men, world no one Jason Day, who was paired on day three with Langer, American big-hitter Dustin Johnson and England'south Danny Willett are bracketed on level par, three back.

Spieth'south late slump would've given them all hope that he can be overhauled, having reached six-under with a birdie on the fifteenth.

His driving from the tee had been wayward all day, but, in contrast to McIlroy, the Texan scrambled superbly and holed crucial putts.

But his luck ran out on the seventeenth, where he could only play out from the trees and couldn't obtain down in two from brief of the green.

Worse was to chase on the tough final hole, driving into trouble on the right.

A excellent recovery left him the chance to retrieve the situation, but his approach left him in three-putt territory and he eventually pulled a 12-foot par putt wide.

McIlroy missed one final chance to create a birdie after a fine approach to the eighteenth, closing on two-over 218.

A double bogey after finding the water on the eleventh was the low point of his circular and he failed to create birdies on the par-five thirteenth and fifteenth holes.

Spieth also double bogeyed the eleventh, but hit back with birdies on the twelfth, thirteenth and 15th until his late slump.
