The Latest: Umbrellas out as Woods begins his 3rd round

By The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The Latest on Saturday's third round at the Masters (all times local):

10:45 a.m.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have begun their third rounds at the Masters and the umbrellas are out at Augusta National.

They were playing in a light rain and the forecast calls for steady showers all day.

Mickelson triple-bogeyed the first hole, his second triple of the tournament. Mickelson, who was playing the third round with Tyrrell Hatton, tripled No. 9 on Friday.

Woods bogeyed the first hole.

Patrick Reed leads the tournament at 6 under and is scheduled to tee off at 2:30.

4:35 p.m.

Patrick Reed is halfway home to his first major championship.

He got there by mostly staying out of trouble at daunting Augusta National and mastering the four par 5s.

Reed shot a 6-under 66 in the second round Friday and moved to 9-under 135 for the tournament. He takes a two-shot lead over Marc Leishman into Saturday's third round, which could be affected by rain.

Forecasts call for steady showers all day, the kind of weather that should soften up what had become a hard and fast test.

The way Reed has played, it's doubtful even Mother Nature can slow him down.

"I believe if I play the golf I know how to play, I can win majors," said Reed, a 27-year-old Texan who ended his college career 3 miles down the road at Augusta State. "I need to stick to my game plan."

Reed and Leishman will be the final pairing Saturday, scheduled to tee off at 2:30 p.m.
