CBS Getting Criticized For Early Masters Coverage On Saturday

On a day when Augusta National, which had been softened by rain earlier in the week, was yielding low scores Koepka could only muster a three-under-par 69 that left him alone in fourth place and three shots back of leader Francesco Molinari.

The 43-year-old Woods, who won his last Masters in 2005, turned back the clock with four birdies in his final 10 holes on Friday, thrilling the Augusta National crowds with a handful of big putts and some vintage fist pumps.

Molinari played with Woods on the final day at Carnoustie last summer and outplayed the 14-time major champion amid a crowded leaderboard to win the British Open.

Woods overcame the injury scare, a balky putter - at least on the short ones - a weather delay and the pressure that comes with contending in a major championship to shoot a 4-under-par 68 and put himself firmly in the hunt for a fifth green jacket.

McIlroy needs only the Masters green jacket to complete a career Grand Slam, an every-major win feat managed only by Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen and Ben Hogan. He gave one shot back with a bogey at No. 9 to finish with at 1-under par for the front nine.

When he saved par from a bunker on the 18th hole, it was his 43rd consecutive hole without a bogey - something no person has achieved at Augusta in over 25 years.

Then at the par-5 15th, Woods knocked his second shot just over the green from 218 yards, hitting another nice pitch to set up birdie.

"Well, I know it's a little different than being 23", he said.

Woods finished tied for sixth at The Open, where Molinari won, and was second at the PGA Championship, where Koepka won his third major.

Plenty of birdies were anticipated on Saturday and Patrick Cantlay - one of the morning starters - was showing what was possible, playing his first 11 holes in five under to move within four of the lead.

With storms forecast, tee times for the final round were moved up almost six hours and players will go off in threesomes off the first and 10th tees.

That he would go on to birdie the hole was but one aspect of a wild second round at the Masters. The leaders will tee off at 9:20 a.m'. Koepka's 71 helped him keep a share of the lead at 137, 7 under.

"I can't control anything that they're doing with -- whatever they're going to do, they're going to do", said Koepka.

It was a day of records at Augusta, with three players shooting rounds of 64 for the first time ever.

A thrilling day was in prospect, with Woods one of four men a solitary shot off the pace at six under.
