• Brandt Snedeker, coming into the Masters with a big question mark following some health issues, posted his third straight round under par at Augusta National to find himself in the final group. Snedeker's 3-under 69 was bogey-free, and the current FedEx Cup champion will be searching for his first major win on Sunday at the Masters.

• The Australians are trying to buck the trend of never winning a green jacket, with Adam Scott, Jason Day and Marc Leishman all right behind leaders Snedeker and Angel Cabrera heading to Sunday.

Tiger Woods stole the headlines early on Saturday with the news that he would receive a two-shot penalty for an illegal drop on Friday. It was a huge debate at Augusta National, with some thinking Woods should be disqualified and not just deducted shots, but the ruling bodies decided against forcing him to leave early.

• It was a solid start to the round for Tiger Woods with a birdie on the first, a hole that has haunted him in the past, but it took him getting to the back nine before he could really get on a roll. Tiger made three birdies over his final seven holes to post a round of 2-under 70, leaving him four back of the leaders.

• One of the best rounds of the week came on Moving Day, when Tim Clark went out early and shot a solid round of 5-under 67. Clark was 2-over heading into Saturday but made five birdies over his first seven holes to jump a ton of players and get himself into contentions at Augusta National.

Matt Kuchar opened the 2013 Masters with a tidy 68, but his Friday 75 dropped him off the front page of the leaderboard. No worries, as Kuchar shot a sweet 69 on Saturday to jump into the top-10.

• Nick Watney opened his Masters with a 78, but consecutive rounds in the 60s has him back in the conversation. Watney shot a third round 68 to get into red figures and with an outside shot at his first major championship.

• Phil Mickelson's bid for a fourth green jacket is all but over after his second straight tough day at the Masters. Mickelson's 77 on Saturday included three water balls on his trip around Amen Corner and consecutive double-bogeys on Nos. 11 and 12.

• Rory McIlroy was hopeful heading into Augusta National after a solid showing in San Antonio, but his game disappeared as he shot a third round 79 that included just one birdie.

• Fred Couples did it to us again at the Masters, grabbing a share of the lead before giving it back during his third round at Augusta National. The 1992 winner couldn't keep the dream run going, shooting a third round 77 to drop all the way in a tie for 18th.

"Absolutely, I made a mistake. Under the rules of golf I took an improper drop and I got the penalty." -- Tiger Woods, on his drop on No. 15 from the second round

Well, here we are, one round left of the 2013 Masters. It's always bittersweet when the first major of the year is almost over, but the good news is we have absolutely no idea who is going to win it.

If Brandt Snedeker wins it will mean that he is truly one of the most dominant golfers on the planet. Angel Cabrera snagging a third major and a second Masters would mean that the guy with no regular PGA Tour victory is definitely a Hall of Famer.

Tiger Woods has a chance to make a run and snag his first major from behind, Jason Day and Adam Scott could be the first Australians to win a green jacket and Matt Kuchar could show us that his play as an amateur in 1998 was not a fluke if he took home the jacket that he's always dreamed of having.

Basically Sunday is going to be awesome, and we can't wait. Oh, and an added bonus? No controversy to deal with!

Don't miss a thing this Masters weekend!
