Keeping score


Number of times that someone has shot four consecutive rounds in the 60s at the Masters. Third-round leader Patrick Reed would be the first today with a round of 3-under 69 or better at Augusta National Golf Club. Reed shot 5-under 67 on Saturday for a 14-under 202 total and three-stroke lead (scores). Reed, 27, who played a key role in Augusta State’s 2010 and 2011 NCAA championships, is a five-time Tour winner who is seeking his first major championship. Rory McIlroy, 28, of Northern Ireland, a four-time major champion, shot 65 and stands at 11-under 205. Reed and McIlroy will be paired in today’s final round in a rematch of an epic singles match at the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National in which Reed prevailed, 1 up. McIlroy lacks only the Masters title for the career Grand Slam (tee times).


Number of times that Masters leader Patrick Reed has held the 54-hole lead in a PGA Tour event. He won three of them (2013 Wyndham Championship, 2014 CareerBuilder Challenge and 2014 WGC Mexico Championship), but in his two most recent 54-hole leads (2014 The National and 2017 Wells Fargo Championship), he finished T-11 and T-12, respectively.
