AUGUSTA, GEORGIA - APRIL 13: Jena Sims, wife of Brooks Koepka of the United States (not pictured), walks through the course during the third round of the 2024 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club on April 13, 2024 in Augusta, Georgia.

If you’re a fan of pretty golf, Round 3 of the 2024 Masters wasn’t for you.

If you’re a fan of low scoring, Round 3 of the 2024 Masters wasn’t for you.

If you’re a fan of Tiger Woods battling in contention, Round 3 of the 2024 Masters wasn’t for you.

Saturday was about as ugly a weekend round as you can have of golf at Augusta National Golf Club, but we’ve made it through.

It looked early on like we’d get some lower scoring today, but that didn’t last, as the wind that plagued Friday’s play came right back. And with no more rain in the area to soften the greens, all we had was a bunch of professional golfers doing their best just to hold on.

Round 3 of the 2024 Masters

Some held on way better than others. Scottie Scheffler ended up right where we expected him to: on top of the leaderboard. Sure, his round featured a double bogey, and an eagle, but hey, he managed. He finished with a 1-under, 71 on his round, and is 7-under overall.

Tiger Woods, on the other hand, did not manage. He started the day at 1-over, and proceeded to have his worst-ever round at Augusta National, finishing with an 82, and he’s now at 11-over.

Lots of names nibbled with moments on top of the leaderboard, including Bryson DeChambeau, Collin Morikawa, Max Homa, Ludvig Aberg, and Nicolai Hojgaard. But as Augusta National tends to do, it bit back at nearly all of them.

Morikawa was about the only golfer near the top that didn’t look like he was afraid of the course. He did have a bogey on 6, but otherwise managed to hold things together nicely, and gained three shots to put himself in the final group on Sunday with a 69.

DeChambeau went the opposite direction, giving back three shots, and falling to 3-under. He did hit a BEAUTIFUL third shot into the hole on the Par 4 18th to help salvage a frustrating day.

Max Homa quietly chugged along, showing calm through the wildness of the day. He had 17 pars. On a day like Saturday, that’s about as good as it gets.

Sunday should prove to be interesting, even if Scheffler does seem a slight bit inevitable for his second Green Jacket. The wind isn’t expected to be an issue, so it’s already looking great.

Here’s a look at some of our favorite images from a wild third round of the 2024 Masters.
