McIlroy rues cruel ricochet that leaves him five back

How to watch The Masters Golf live stream

The swaying trees should stand still. The man who has finished second in his two other Masters appearances and had at least a share of the third-round lead each of the last three years has a chance to make more history with a win on Sunday.

Fowler, who shot an 80 in the opening round past year to miss the cut, made the biggest move Friday with a 5-under 67. The easy 65 gave way to a hard 75.

"It's going to be a fun weekend", Fowler said.

"There are other times I've shot bad weekends and went the other way". Rickie Fowler was another shot behind while Jordan Spieth, Thomas Pieters and William McGirt were tied three strokes behind Hoffman.

Co-leader Sergio Garcia, playing his 72nd consecutive major tournament and 74th overall, is still seeking his first major title.

"Anybody who makes the cut can win, " said Ernie Els.

He last won a PGA Tour event in 2003 at the Houston Open and before that had not celebrated a victory since 1998. Aside from that, it is on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom with the red button offering you a chance to sit and watch Amen Corner all day, if you'd like, and there is an option to stream online via WatchESPN but that depends on what country you are in. "Put it all together, you have an unbelievable place".

And one that has never been a favorite of Sergio Garcia.

After falling down 14-0 to the visiting Detroit Lions in the Wild Card round in 2014, Romo led the Cowboys on a furious comeback. Dallas raced out to an early lead, and then Brees went to work in the second quarter leading the Saints to 21 straight points.

Spanish stalwart Garcia has four runner-ups among 22 top-10s in his major championship career, without winning a big one.

"Everybody was talking about how great that round was yesterday, but it was pretty easy to me - making putts, hitting good, solid golf shots", Hoffman said. "I probably didn't accept things as well as I should have".

The order of play is a little more logical too as the highest scoring players to have made the cut, which doesn't including defending champion Danny Willett, going off first and the leaders in the very latest tee-times. Could it really come here? Garcia, 37, whose younger self would have been fazed by the scoring error, said he wasn't anxious: "I knew where I stood". "I've shown myself many times after that I can contend and I truly feel I cannot only win one (major) but more than one".

Hoffman, who had a 7-under-par 65 on Thursday in the first round, stumbled to a 75 on Friday.

Spieth was tied with Ryan Moore (69) and Charley Hoffman, who led for much of the day until he put his tee shot into the water on the par-3 16th and made double bogey.

But Fitzpatrick was unable to copy his playing partner as he bogeyed at the same hole to move back to five-over-par.

Rickie Fowler was third at 5 under while Jordan Spieth, the 2015 Masters victor, headed a group of three who were two strokes back. Mickelson admitted fatigue set in on a tough day.

Day said his wife, Ellie, "was kind of ready to slap me in the face because I was so negative with myself". It was obvious there in the end. Two holes later, he almost holed a wedge from the 15th fairway. "I'm in a good spot heading into the weekend, just feel I should be a few more ahead". His willingness to take risks to create birdie chances is what makes him so unsafe at Augusta, but it also gets him into trouble, like it did late Friday.
