Masters leaderboard 2013: Jason Day, Angel Cabrera hold lead at 6-under

Andrew Redington

Jason Day is now even with Angel Cabrera after the Argentinian dropped a shot on No. 12.

Angel Cabrera has dropped a shot on Amen Corner, falling back to 6-under with a bogey on No. 12, pulling him even with Jason Day. Cabrera is the 2009 Masters winner, and he's not been heard from much since that victory. But he often manages to creep up leaderboards at the majors, playing his best when it matters most. And he quietly went to the top of the leaderboard again in the third round, draining a long putt on No. 10 to get to 7-under. He was lucky to finish with bogey on No. 12, however, as a blast out of the famous bunker in front of the green nearly came back down the shaved hill and into Rae's Creek. The Argentinian instead got down in two from the right side, walking off with just a bogey to at least stay in a share of the lead.

The Australian duo of Marc Leishman and Jason Day are the primary chasers at this point, attempting to end the curse of no Aussie ever winning the Masters (despite several close calls). Leishman rinsed his approach shot by going left at No. 11, a inexcusable mistake that was mildly redeemed when he drained a long putt to "save" bogey. He's 1 shot back at 5-under, while Day heads to the easier par-5 13th hole in a tie for the lead at 6-under. The midpoint leader will have an excellent opportunity to jump into sole possession of the lead again on No. 13.

A quartet of players are currently two shots back, including Americans Fred Couples, Brandt Snedeker, and Matt Kuchar. A third Aussie inside the top 10, Adam Scott, joins them as a moving day contender.

Here is a snapshot of where the leaders and a few notables stand:
