Sunday’s final round will once again see reigning Open champion Molinari and five-time Masters winner Woods go head-to-head. The duo played the final round at The Open last year and have also had previous battles in Ryder Cups.
Thunderstorm warnings mean that the tee times for Sunday’s final round have been brought forward. The opening group will start at 12.30pm (BST) and Molinari, Finau and Woods begin at 2.20pm (BST).
Molinari said: “My plan is to go out and do the same but I think there’s going to be a few guys trying to mess up with my plan. He [Woods] obviously loves this place and he’s playing great golf so I’m aware that it’s not going to be easy. I can just do my best but it’s not like I can only worry about him.”
Woods is a 14-time major winner and his last victory at Augusta was in 2005. The 43-year-old, who is aiming for his fifth Green Jacket, said: “It’s been a while since I’ve been in contention here. But then again, the last two majors counts for something. I’ve been in the mix with a chance to win major championships in the last two years and so that helps. I’m just thankful to be able to come back here and play again.”
