Scottie Scheffler takes third-round lead at Masters after late charge  

Augusta, Ga. He's back. Scottie Scheffler leads. Major championship. At Masters. Scheffler, the world's top golfer and 2022 Masters champion, leads the final round by one stroke at Augusta National in his quest for a second green jacket in three years.  

Scheffler is 7-under after a Saturday 1-under-par 71. Two-time major champion Collin Moriwaka is one shot off the lead at 6-under par after shooting 69 on Saturday, one of just two 60s in the third round.  

The last 27 Masters champions entered the last round within four strokes. Max Homa is two strokes behind at 5-under par for his maiden major title.  

Ludvig Aberg, a Swedish rookie in his maiden major competition, is 4-under par, three strokes down. The contentious can't-take-your-eyes-off-him Bryson DeChambeau, who entered the day with a share of the lead at 6-under par,  

was four strokes down at 3-under par after a rollercoaster day that saw him essentially play his way out of the tournament with a tough back nine. Until he birdied the 18th hole on his third shot from 80 yards away.  

After pushing his tee shot into the right trees and punching out, DeChambeau appeared distraught after losing his chances before his third shot.  

When he jarred it, lightning surged around the 18th green. He suddenly has a chance. Tiger Woods shot an 82, his best Masters score in 99 rounds, on a day when Taylor Swift was rumored to be there but never seen.  

The last round of drama on Sunday will have interesting tales. Scheffler's win would confirm his domination in the game, unmatched since Woods' prime. Morikawa could become the sixth player to complete a career Grand Slam with all four major titles if he wins at Pinehurst in June.  

Homa's win would be one of the sport's most famous. If DeChambeau wins, LIV Golf and the 2020 U.S. Open champion win big.
