The Masters 2024 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest updates as Scottie Scheffler leads and Tiger Woods on track in final round
Rory McIlroy laments slow play on 'tough day' at Masters

Scottie Scheffler has a one-point lead going into Sunday at The Masters, with Collin Morikawa, Max Homme and Ludwig Aberg all eager to chase the green jacket at Augusta National.

It's shaping up to be a great final day of action, with the likes of Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele not completely out of the running either, despite needing a strong performance with no room for mistakes. Aberg in particular hopes to advance his case to be the first ever Masters winner, following his exploits in the Ryder Cup.

However, it is Scheffler, after a third-round 71 that put him seven under par, who leads the way and who will be the man to follow as he seeks his second Masters title. Rory McIlroy was unable to regain his place among the contenders on Saturday, while Tiger Woods made a record 24th consecutive cut in the tournament, but then endured a hot day yesterday, recording a 10th round.

Does Scotty have the right to lose?

1935: Scottie Scheffler (-7), Collin Morikawa (-6)

Meanwhile, Morikawa snuck out of nowhere to be in this final pairing. The two-time major champion has endured a quiet season but after three subpar rounds, he is just one step away from the top spot. Thanks in large part to his resurgence, the American now has a chance to move up to the Grand Slam to win a Grand Slam.

A scary start for McIlroy

McIlroy +4 (1), Niemann +4 (1)

It wasn't a start yet for either of these two. McIlroy to the left of the green, Nyman to the right – both unable to get up and down to save par.

They will hope to bounce back in 5 seconds.

Chip in Willett

Well, this is one way to get your tour up and running. Like Schaeffler, yesterday, the 2016 champion came up from the left at the start to birdie his round.

It is worth noting that this is the Englishman's first tournament since September last year due to shoulder surgery. Pretty impressive comeback considering that and the circumstances he faced this week.

Huma is playing the patient game

1925: Max Homa (-5), Ludwig Aberg (-4)

Max Homa may not have been able to make a birdie in 32 holes but the American is still just two shots off the lead. This tells you everything you need to know about the conditions at Augusta but also his resilience and consistency over the first three rounds.

Meanwhile, Aberg is here for his big debut but shows no signs of being intimidated by emotion. The Swede had another strong outing yesterday and will be hoping to use his elite ball to put himself in the record books.

Up and down start for Ram

A beautiful sand putt on three gave Rahm his second birdie of the day after a bogey on the par-5 5. Can he run together and climb into the top 10?

Rory McIlroy admits patience was tested during a disappointing Masters tournament

Rory McIlroy will start his final round in around 15 minutes as he looks to mount an attack on the final day to end his tournament on a positive note.

McIlroy did not lose hope in competing for the green jacket, despite scoring 77 points in very difficult conditions on Friday, which left him 10 shots away from the lead.

The world number two pointed out that he won the Dubai Desert Classic in January from the same position – although he acknowledged the stature of the events was different – but could only make it back to the third round with a 71 on Saturday to remain three points over par. .

This is what he said after Saturday's round:

Masters 2024

Could we be in for an eventful Sunday? Former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley certainly thinks so…

Can DeChambeau build on Saturday's magical finish?

1915: Bryson DeChambeau (-3), Xander Schauffele (-2)

Bryson had fallen off the top after a disastrous shot at the backline yesterday, including a terrible ball in the 15th over. But the American gave a shot of adrenaline to his championship hopes after an incredible hole-in-one from the fairway for birdie on the 18th hole. He's back but don't count out “Mad World” yet.

Xander Schauffele did a great job yesterday with a par-16 and two birdies. His superior consistency has kept him in the chase but he will need dynamite on Sunday to chase down Schaeffler.

What a day for amateur Neil Shipley

Jungle +15 (11), Shipley +10 (11)

The 23-year-old has already claimed the low amateur award after being the only one to make it to the weekend. The American struggled in the third round but has a dream pairing with Tiger Woods today and is making the most of it.

Birdies at 7 and 8 put him under par for his round as the pair heads to the 12th tee.
