Mickelson has fallen back to -7 with a bogey at 6.

3:43

Westwood is pulling away. He’s two shots clear of Poulter and three shots out of Woods and Mickelson.

Phil makes a lengthy par shot at 7. His stroke looks very good right now.

3:56

Tiger just bogeyed the Par 3 Fourth. His initial putt was ugly, blowing way past the hole.

4:22
Tiger has bogeyed 6 and 7, falling to -5. It’ll be interesting to see how he handles this emotionally.

Mickelson at -8 is all alone in second.

5:00

Kenny Perry has eagled the 13th and 15th to move into a tie for tenth.

Tiger is struggling. He’s +1 on the day and doesn’t look very happy.

Couples is still in the mix, at -5, but Westwood still is three shots clear of his next competitor, Poulter.

5:10

Phil just Eagled 13 to go to nine under, alone in 2nd and just two behind Westwood.

Woody, in the meantime, has four bogeys on his card.

5:10

Mickelson just Eagled the 14th, holing it from 139. The ball hit right, then spun into the hole. Amazing. He’s on a roll. Now just one back of Westwood at -10.

5:34
Couples just Eagled 15th to go to eight under, in third all by his lonesome.

Holy Cow!! What a weekend!!

5:39

Unbelievable. Phil came within an inch of eagling his third in a row.

5:42

Phil birdies to take the lead at -12.

Meanwhile, 60-year-old Tom Watson is +1 for the day. Not too bad for a guy who said he could no longer contend with the length at Augusta. He’s amazing.

6:06

Tiger has clawed his way back into a tie for third.

6:10

Phil with a three putt bogey. The magic is gone. Falls into a tie for first.

6:50
