"I thought it was 60 and ties and Michael told me - because I've never been anywhere near it - so Michael told me on 15 or 16, " Spieth said. "I tried to grind it out there".

Woods has already vastly improved on his performance at The Masters a year ago, where he was three-over par at after two rounds.

Woods returned from spinal fusion surgery last year and contended at the British Open and PGA Championship then snapped a five-year US PGA Tour win drought at the Tour Championship and stretched his comeback story again Friday with no health issues after great play on one of golf's biggest stages. "This is now three straight majors that I've been in the mix and so it's good stuff". "All of a sudden I'm here at the Masters".

One hole earlier, a pinpoint chip to set up birdie had drawn with one shot.

The 29-year-old was eight shots off the lead as he signed his card, but low scores were the order of the day and the four-time major victor was certain to be too far back to mount a challenge on Sunday.

At 14, Woods escaped trees left of the fairway, put his approach to 28 feet and holed the testy putt to reach five-under.

Tony Finau of the US looks up the 4th hole before hitting during third round play.

"It is what it is", Woods said. "Accidents happen and move on".

Rob Westcott, senior propulsion engineer at Nammo, said: "We've never used an engine in this kind of application before". But the landing was the riskiest part of the mission.

In fact, Woods would birdie the next two holes to pull within a stroke of the lead. He failed to make the birdie putt after play resumed.

Oosthuizen made seven birdies in shooting a 66. Cantlay, who began the day nine shots off the lead, moved to within a shot of a group of leaders who had yet to tee off when he finished. The Italian played a bogey-free round, finishing with a 67.

It worked wonders as he appeared to be in considerably less pain while putting together a round that was almost flawless, although Day said his wife Ellie deserved just as much credit for his remarkable recovery. The leaders will tee off at 9 a.m., about six hours earlier than a typical Sunday at Augusta National.Assuming there are no delays, the final round should end about 2:30 p.m.CBS Sports will broadcast the final round starting at 9 a.m.Club chairman Fred Ridley says an early start gives the tournament the best chance to avoid rain and end on Sunday.

"It's a bunched leader board ... if someone decides to break away on the weekend I'm in a good spot to run with them".

Woods had three birdies on each nine, with a bogey 5 on the fifth his only blight.

"Didn't exactly feel comfortable so it was nice to get one at 18 to finish it", he said.

Woods was tied with Dustin Johnson, another major champion and world No. 1, along with Xander Schauffele and Masters newcomer Justin Harding of South Africa.

United States left-hander Phil Mickelson, who at 48 would become the oldest major champion in golf history with a win, shot 73 in his 100th career Masters round to stand three off the lead. Sergio Garcia also missed the weekend. He still was within four shots, along with Justin Thomas, who had a 68.

Another former victor, Chrarl Schwartzel, did not make the cut while amateur Jovan Rebula, Ernie Els' nephew, also missed the cut. Former victor Trevol Immelman finished at two over while Branden Grace was at three over for the day.
