Francesco Molinari net worth: Predicted wealth of Masters 2019 contender

It was hard to imagine we'd ever get this Tiger Woods back at the Masters

In a final round that was played in threesomes off both tees to stay ahead of approaching thunderstorms, Woods grabbed the outright lead for the first time with a two-putt birdie at No. 15.

Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka finished tied second at 12-under.

Woods, a four-time Masters champion seeking his first green jacket since 2005, stood with fellow American Tony Finau on 11-under 205 after 54 holes at the year's first major tournament.

At the end of season Tour Championship in 2018 Woods won his 80th PGA Tour event and his first win since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.

Through five holes of Saturday's third round at the Masters, Tiger Woods was one-over and watching as the rest of the field was taking advantage of the easy scoring conditions.

On 14, Woods found himself in the pine straw to the left of the fairway, but put his shot on the dance floor and then holed a attractive putt. Woods became the second-oldest to win the Masters, again behind Nicklaus who was 46 when he won in 1986.

Woods owns five green jackets to Nicklaus' six.

Tiger Woods is in position to claim his first major title in 11 years, after a record-breaking third round of the Masters. "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by".

It's been an incredible road back to major contention for Woods. It's working so well that Molinari goes into the final round having gone 43 consecutive holes without a bogey.

"The front nine is harder to score on, so I don't think that's totally out of the ordinary, " Spieth said.

The British Open champion, who rarely looked like dropping a shot all day, had to survive a nervy finish when he hit a poor drive then landed his second in the bunker at the 18th. His strategy doesn't change in any environment - try to hit the ball squarely, play smart, avoid bogeys.

Even United States President Donald Trump, who has golfed with Woods at his Mar-a-Lago resort, said on Twitter he was looking forward to Sunday's final round.

Reigning Open champion Francesco Molinari, last year's US Open and PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka, Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott and South African Louis Oosthuizen all shared the midway lead.

Jordan Spieth to a rules official: "I need to know if and when I can back into this bush".

"I was very patient, just kind of hung in there, kind of kept grinding and trying to make a birdie here and there when I could and if I had a green light situation really attack". "It wasn't about chasing, it wasn't about doing anything, it was just about going out there and executing the shots that I needed to".

He shot rounds of 75 and 73.
