Masters day three photos

Rain threatens play on day three of the Masters

As play gets under way on day three of the Masters, light rain forces up a few brollies from the patrons

Miguel Angel Jimenez is the first out on the course

But it takes more than rain to deter Miguel Angel Jimenez, who is out first playing his third round alone - he starts birdie, birdie

Sandy Lyle

Sandy Lyle ponders the distinctly Scottish conditions from under his umbrella as he slips down the Masters leaderboard

Zach Johnson approaches the first hole at Augusta

Despite the rain, defending champion Zach Johnson - and his divot - are heading in the right direction on Saturday. 68 is his score

Justin Rose takes cover

When it rains it pours. First round co-leader Justin Rose slips further off the pace - this has become a frustrating tournament for him

Rain stops play at Augusta

At about 1300 local time, the rain gets the better of things and a lengthy suspension is called at Augusta

Adam Scott plays out of the sand

From water to sand... play resumes but Adam Scott gets his clubs dirty as he slides further out of contention

Tiger Woods on day three

Tiger Woods is out on the course and you get the feeling it's make-or-break time for him - he answers with a birdie

Retief Goosen is a former major winner

Retief Goosen is one of the sharpest movers on "moving day" - two quick birdies propel him nicely and, later, an eagle at the 13th

Paul Casey

Paul Casey gets in on the act, taking up where he left off on Friday with a trio of birdies to climb to seven under

Lee Westwood throws his ball

And Lee Westwood is hanging around - in fact he is one of the hottest players on the course as the leaderboard closes up

Ian Poulter eyes up a putt

Sporting another natty pair of trousers, Ian Poulter keeps his focus for a while but then shanks shots on two successive holes

Brandt Snedeker takes the lead from Trevo Immelman

Be honest, how many of you tipped Brandt Snedeker to lead the Masters midway through round three? But lead it he does...

Trevor Immelman salutes the Augusta patrons

And what of Trevor Immelman, leader after rounds one and two? He is going along very steadily at level par just one shot back

Phil Mickelson struggles on day three

Phil Mickelson starts the day as bookies' favourite but he won't end it like that - too many shots get away from the man they call "Lefty"

Steve Flesch

The quiet man of the tournament has been Steve Flesch and what do you know, the American takes a share of the lead

Tiger Woods smiles

Meanwhile, a much happier Woods plays his way to a share of the lead back in the clubhouse. At five under he is right in the hunt

Paul Casey holds aloft his ball

Casey hits the turn at four under for his round but drops a shot to finish on seven under, well placed for a Sunday assault on the title

Brandt Snedeker

The only men in front of him are Flesch, Snedeker (pictured), who flirts with fortune a little bit on his back nine at Augusta National...

Trevor Immelman putts while Brandt Snedeker watches on

And Snedeker's playing partner Immelman, who leads on 11 under and will bid to be the first wire-to-wire winner since Ray Floyd in 1976
