Mickelson Electrifies Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Lee Westwood is the leader going to the final round of the Masters after shooting a 4-under 68. That leaves him one stroke ahead of Phil Mickelson.

Lefty caused the biggest stir Saturday by becoming only the third golfer in Augusta National history to make back-to-back eagles. He missed an unprecedented third straight by just 6 inches. Mickelson shot a 67 to earn a spot in the final pairing with Westwood on Sunday.

Tiger Woods had an inconsistent round, but rallied for his second straight 70. He is only four strokes off Westwood's pace, a 12-under 204. K.J. Choi is also at 208, with 50-year-old Fred Couples another stroke behind.
