Sand save for Homa

Max Homa with a great up and down for par on the 18th to finish the day at -5.

That wraps up the day's action.

Outrageous finish from DeChambeau

What a shot!

Bryson DeChambeau holes out with an outrageous approach shot on the 18th for a birdie.

What a way to finish.



Birdie finish for Scheffler

After an imperious approach shot, Scheffler knocks in his birdie putt on 18 to take the lead at -7.

A solid one-under 71 from the world No.1 today.

He'll certainly be dreaming of another green jacket as he drifts off to sleep tonight.

Fantastic touch from Morikawa

A beautiful chip shot on 18 left Morikawa with a simple tap in par, which he duly knocked in to finish his round.

The two-time major champion currently has a share of the lead with Scottie Scheffler at -6.

A painful finish for Fox

Ryan Fox had a finish to forget today, making a triple bogey on the 17th before dropping another shot on 18. 

The New Zealander finished the day +4 with a third-round 77.

Disaster for DeChambeau

It's a hole to forget for Bryson DeChambeau as he makes a double bogey on the 15th.

After hitting it in the patrons with his second shot, he then proceeded to completely chunk his chip shot into the water.

From there it was damage limitation, and he did well to only drop two shots. 

He's now dropped back to -3.

Scheffler takes the outright lead

We've read this script before.

Despite dropping shots on the 10th and 11th, Scheffler has worked his way back up to the top of the leaderboard, thanks to an eagle on 13 and a birdie on 15.

He now has the solo lead at -7.

The 2022 Masters champion is showing real grit on this back nine. 

Homa can't buy a birdie

The popular American has had several good looks today, but he still hasn't registered his first birdie.

He narrowly slides another one by on the 15th hole, before tidying up well for his par to remain at -5.

Hojgaard sinking like a stone

The young Dane managed three birdies in a row as he made the turn but saw his fortune turn on the back with four bogeys on the bounce. 

He was leading for a split second but now sits fourth on the leaderboard.

Nicolai Hojgaard

A golden eagle for Scheffler

Scottie Scheffler reclaims his spot at the top of the leaderboard thanks to a fantastic eagle putt on the 13th hole.

You just can't keep him down for long.

Meanwhile, Hojgaard makes a bogey, having found the water with his second shot. 

Another three-shot swing.

Lots of dropped shots at the top

Aberg, DeChambeau, Homa and Hojgaard all drop shots in the space of five minutes. 

As a result, Morikawa has the solo lead at -6.

Scheffler has a great look at eagle on 13; you would expect him to pick up at least one shot from his position on the green.

Hojgaard -5 (12)

Another dropped shot for Scheffler

Well, we didn't see that coming.

Scheffler bogeys the 11th hole to drop another shot.

He's now -4 for the week and sat third on the leaderboard.

It's been a while since we've seen the world No.1 drop shots on consecutive holes. 

Hojgaard's stint as the leader was also short, with the Dane also bogeying the treacherous 11th.

Three-shot swing

After nearly holing a monster putt for par, Scottie Scheffler misses a simple little two-footer to drop two shots on the 10th hole.

Meanwhile, his playing partner Nicolai Hojgaard holes a lengthy birdie putt to take the outright lead at -7.

A three-shot swing!

Scheffler in trouble

With 180 yards left for his second shot, Scottie Scheffler has airmailed the green, leaving himself in a very tricky spot.

There's work to do for the 2022 Masters Champion if he's to retain his one-shot lead.

The chasing pack has grown

Both DeChambeau and Hojgaard make birdies to expand the group in second place to four, along with Collin Morikawa and Max Homa.

Aberg looking right at home

You would never have guessed this is Ludvig Aberg's first major appearance by the way he's playing.

The young Swede just birdied the 9th hole to move into third place alongside Cameron Davis and Bryson DeChambeau.

I don't want to get too smug too early, but he was my pick for the week.

He's just so cool and calm on the big occasion.

Morikawa gets within one

Collin Morikawa holes a tricky little birdie putt on the 8th hole to move one shot back from Scottie Scheffler.

A fantastic opening eight holes from the two-time major champion.
