It’s essentially a two-horse race at Augusta National now. Scottie Scheffler is still the favorite to win the Masters on Sunday, but first-round favorite Cameron Smith cut into Scheffler’s lead on Saturday. Scheffler is sitting at -9 and Smith is sitting at -6, and the only other player within seven shots of Scheffler is Sungjae Im at -4.

Scottie Scheffler had a chance to really run away with the tournament on Saturday. He was -3 through the front nine and five shots ahead of the field. However, he stumbled on the back nine with four bogeys in his last seven holes. It was a disappointing finish after he shot -4 on the back nine in the second round, and that gives the field hope they can run down Scheffler.
It's been an up-and-down Masters for Cameron Smith. He has gone 68-74-68 through the first three rounds, and he now has 16 birdies through 54 holes. Double bogeys on the 1st hole and 18th hole kept him from leading after the first round, but he has the best chance to catch Scheffler on Sunday. Smith is looking for his first major win, and he finished T2 at the November Masters in 2020.
The only other golfer that doesn’t have astronomical odds to win the Masters is Sungjae Im. He finished T2 at the November Masters as well, and he finished strong on the back nine in the third round. Im was sitting at even par but birdied four of his last nine holes to sit within five shots of the lead.
Only seven golfers are currently under par at the Masters. Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa both fell off after strong starts on Saturday as the conditions have become very difficult due to the wind. Fortunately, the weather won’t be as much of a factor on Sunday as the forecast calls for temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s in the afternoon with a max wind speed of 8 MPH.
