"I'm pretty comfortable being up there on the leaderboard in a major come Sunday", Koepka said.

It's certainly working for Woods so far. "After Woods set himself up to possibly win a fifth green jacket on Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter to share why he thinks Sunday could be a 'big day, '" Sports Illustrated reported.

Because of the change in starting times, Finau gets to play alongside Woods - his golfing hero - not only at the last group in a major, but at the Masters.

That's not just in the court of public opinion - major-less players like Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler all were favored over Koepka in Vegas to start the week.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The sliding, perhaps overzealous, security guard meant well, but for a few fleeting, scary moments on Friday afternoon, the scene appeared ominous for Tiger Woods, who was clipped in the right knee and was left hobbling to the 14th green at Augusta National.

Augusta National might sound different than a tough links along the North Sea of Scotland. Bernhard Langer. He's 61 years old and under par for the tournament. You heard CBS broadcaster Verne Lundquist, who made the forever Nicklaus call in '86, ask the question of the week ("Anybody enjoying this?") before his partner Nick Faldo repeated Lundquist's '86 call of, "Yes, sirrrrrr".

Woods, who last slipped on the Green Jacket in 2005, will start Sunday's final round with Molinari and Tony Finau.

Fans welcomed the re-appearance of Lando Calrissian, played by Billy Dee Williams , who is seen piloting the Millennium Falcon. When asked what it was like playing the character again after so much time had passed, Williams remarked that it was easy.

The 43-year-old got off to his common slow start Saturday, carding four straight pars before stumbling to his lone bogey on the hard par-4 fifth.

"History always tells us the guys that play the par 5s well are the ones that go on to win the tournament and that go on to be in contention", Finau said.

The lessons learned that day should serve him well on Sunday.

"I feel like I played my own way back into the tournament", Woods said. "I've won with a totally different body than I have dealt with in the past".

Asked if he felt discounted as a legit favorite entering yet another major due to all the noise, Koepka again fired back at the media attention.

The 43-year-old, who was second in the US PGA last year and briefly led the Open in his comeback season from spine fusion surgery, played in a manner reminiscent of his pomp, with fierce driving, pin-point iron play, some impressive recovery shots and several key putts.

It was impossible to get a spot up close to Tiger Woods' post-round media session Saturday at the Masters. "But as soon as I take to this course my back bothers me". Breakfast with Tiger might end up being the best meal this game has ever served.
