A glance at Saturday's third round of the Masters at the 7,435-yard, par-72 Augusta National Golf Club.

Leading: Brandt Snedeker and 2009 champion Angel Cabrera are tied at 7-under 209.

Pursuing: Adam Scott is a stroke back, followed by Marc Leishman and second-round leader Jason Day two strokes behind.

Where's Tiger?: Tied for seventh, four strokes back, after 70. Nearly disqualified for an illegal drop during Friday's round, Woods was hit with a two-stroke penalty before the third round began.

Shot of the day: Snedeker's mid-iron into the 16th bounded on the green and rolled out to within 3 feet of the flag. The birdie putt gained him a tie for the lead with Day, and Snedeker never relinquished it.

Key stat: Snedeker made 12 straight pars out of the gate, then birdied three of his final six holes.

Noteworthy: Three of the top five slots on the leaderboard are occupied by Australians, giving them a solid chance to end that nation's 0-for-the-Masters drought.

Quoteworthy: "If it was done a year or two ago, whatever, I wouldn't have the opportunity to play. But the rules have changed, and under the rules of golf I was able to play." Tiger Woods on his near-disqualification.

Television: CBS, 2-7 p.m. EDT
