“I try to feed off the energy from the crowd a little bit,” Scheffler said. “It’s nice walking onto these tee boxes and getting a nice ovation. I think No. 12 is one of those for me (Saturday). I double 10 and bogey 11, and then we were walking up that tee on 12 and everybody kind of stands up behind the tee and starts cheering me on. It’s a really nice feeling to have the crowd behind you. I try to embrace that as much as possible out there.”

One behind Scheffler entering Sunday’s final round is Morikawa (-6), trying to win his first green jacket in his fifth Masters appearance.

“(Sunday), anything could happen,” Morikawa said. “There’s still a lot of guys right beneath us. We don’t know what conditions are going to be like. The greens are getting firmer than I’ve ever seen out here. So it’s going to play a lot different from kind of what we’ve seen the first two rounds.

You know, at the end of the day, I know where my head is at. I know what I need to focus on, and I know what needs to be done if I want to close it off (Sunday).”

Two shots off of the lead sits Max Homa (-5), seeking his first major championship.

“I came here with the gratitude and appreciation that I get to do it,” Homa said. “I’m happy I get to do it (Sunday). I’m going to remind myself I’m a dog and I’m ready for this moment.”

Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg (-4), making his Masters debut, will try to become the first to win at Augusta in their first try since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979.

“I’m okay thinking about it,” Aberg said. “Obviously I’m a competitor and I want to win tournaments. I feel very fortunate to be in this position and to be here playing golf.

Yes, I don’t think you should shy away from it. I don’t think you should try to push it away. I try to embrace it, and I try to be okay with all that comes with it, I guess.”
