Recap: Summary of first three rounds of the Masters

Thursday: Charlotte-born Bill Haas puts together a 4-under round that features six birdies and two bogeys. His 68 is one shot better than three tied for second – defending champion Adam Scott, 2012 winner Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen.

Friday: Haas fades quickly, leaving the door open for Watson, who takes a three-stroke lead by shooting 68. Key to his round are five consecutive birdies on No. 12 through 16. Australia’s John Senden is in second, with four players – Thomas Bjorn, Jonas Blixt, Fred Couples and Jimmy Walker – a stroke behind him.

Saturday: Youngster Jordan Spieth sets the stage for a final pairing Sunday by shooting a 2-under 70, good enough to tie Watson for the lead after three rounds. Watson, shaky at times, spectacular at others, shoots a 74. Matt Kuchar and Blixt are one back. David Scott
