Day three has come and gone for the Masters tournament, but here our latest notes on the event. Get excited because Sunday should be an interesting finish.
Rory McIlory: stayed consistent by posting two under par and will be the 54-hole leader heading into Sunday.
Tiger Woods: Went two-over par and remains seven shots behind McIlroy.
Phil Mickelson: Did not shoot a low score, but still trails McIlroy. He remains behind the struggling Tiger Woods.
Jason Day: He bogeyed four holes and birdied an additional four holes en route to an even par 72 for the day.
K.J Choi: Played a solid round and remains four shots back.
Angel Cabrera: The former Masters Champion went five-under par and put himself four shots behind McIlroy.

Tiger Woods: Fist pumps were flying on Friday, as Tiger shot a 66 and stumbled his way to a par-35 during the first nine holes. He birdied on every par-five, which was a good sign. Tiger remains three strokes behind Rory McIlroy and one behind Jason Day. Tiger will be playing with K.J Choi on Saturday.
Rory McIlroy: Rory has remained consistent during the first two rounds. McIlroy only slipped once with his first bogey of the tournament during his back nine on Friday, but continues to remain an active member of the pack.
Jason Day: He shot an even par round of 72 on Thursday and played very well on Friday, shooting at 64. Day remains one stroke ahead of Tiger and two strokes behind Rory.
K.J Choi: K.J had another solid round by going two under par and did leave a few putts on the course. For example, Choi needed three putts to get down from five feet on the 18th hole, but luckily, he finished his round with a bogey.
Martin Kaymer: With Tiger somewhat behind and lagging at times, Kaymer could fall down if Woods walks away the winner. Kaymer is yet to make a cut at Augusta, so don’t expect much from him on Saturday.
Phil Mickelson: Phil did not make too much noise on Friday, as he finished the day evenly and finished the first two days, two-under par.

After the first round of The Masters, there are indeed a few players who really stood out from the rest, but also, there are those who didn’t perform quite well on Thursday.
* Rory McIlroy posted a seven-under and was one of the more impressive golfers on the day, but it will be interesting to see if he can stay at this current pace, especially since he has been a 17-hole leader before. During the British Open 2010, McIlroy carded the lowest score during the first round and then finished in the 80′s after his second go around.
* Alvaro Quiros who won the Dubai Desert Classic this year, also carded a 65 and certainly is a name to possibly remember.
* Another player that struck out was Martin Kaymer. Kaymer is yet to make the cut at Augusta since he shot a six-over.
* Two players who will always be in the hunt are Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Tiger shot one-under par with a few clutch putts. He has won the Masters four times and has a first round scoring average of above par.
* Phil Mickelson is the reigning Masters champion and he shot two-under par on Thursday. Expect another impressive day from him on Friday.
