Masters Leaderboard: Phil Mickelson Making Move, Co-Leads With Matt Kuchar, Louis Oosthuizen

Phil Mickelson is making a charge on the second nine at Augusta National, taking advantage of opportunities at Amen Corner. He birdied the intimidating par-3 12th hole and then converted a beautiful eagle on the par-5 13th hole to move to 6-under with Louis Oosthuizen and Matt Kuchar. Mickelson is 4-under through the first four holes on the second nine, with another likely birdie opportunity ahead of him at No. 15. Video of Phil's eagle putt at No. 13:

Former British Open Champion Oosthuizen reeled off three straight birdies and went out in 34 to tie Kuchar at 6-under atop the leaderboard. Oosthuizen's not a bomber, but his steady tee-to-green play has him right there heading to his final nine holes of the third round.


More Masters: Tiger’s Game Slips Further South

Rory McIlroy fell off the face of the earth on his first nine, going out in 42. McIlroy is now 2-over and 8 shots off the lead. Irishman Padraig Harrington birdied five of the final six holes and moved within two shots of the lead with a blistering 68 in his third round. Paddy has struggled to find his game since re-making his swing, but he certainly found some magic coming down the stretch on Saturday.
