It looks like another day for going low at Augusta National.
On a cloudy Sunday, with temperatures expected to peak out in the upper 70s, there are plenty of red numbers on the board among the early starters.
Keegan Bradley is 4-under par through 10 holes. Jimmy Walker is 3 under through 12. Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed and Henrik Stenson are 2 under after playing just a few holes.
Essentially, there are two tournaments at this point.
Jordan Spieth hold a four-stroke lead over Justin Rose after setting a 54-hole scoring record with a 16-under 200. Phil Mickelson is five shots back and already warming up on the practice range, looking to rally for his fourth Masters championship. Charley Hoffman, at six off the pace, is the only other player with a single-digit deficit.
Spieth and Rose tee off in the final group at 2:50 p.m. EDT.
Leading the B-flight, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are among those 10 shots off the pace; they'll be playing together in the third group from the end.
Also at 210 are Kevin Streelman, winner of the Par 3 Contest, Kevin Na and Dustin Johnson.
Only one player, Paul Lawrie at the 1999 British Open, has ever rallied from 10 shots down on the final day to win a major championship.
That was the year that Jean van de Velde collapsed on the 72nd hole and lost in a playoff.
