The Masters 2024 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest updates with Scottie Scheffler in the lead ahead of Sunday's final round

Rory McIlroy laments slow play on 'tough day' at Masters

Scottie Scheffler has a one-point lead going into Sunday at The Masters, with Collin Morikawa, Max Homme and Ludwig Aberg all eager to chase the green jacket at Augusta National.

It's shaping up to be a great final day of action, with the likes of Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele not completely out of the running either, despite needing a strong performance with no room for mistakes. Aberg in particular hopes to advance his case to be the first ever Masters winner, following his exploits in the Ryder Cup.

However, it is Scheffler, after a third-round 71 that put him seven under par, who leads the way and who will be the man to follow as he seeks his second Masters title. Rory McIlroy was unable to regain his place among the contenders on Saturday, while Tiger Woods made a record 24th consecutive cut in the tournament, but then endured a hot day yesterday, recording a 10th round.

Tiger Woods suffers an unwanted third-round Masters breakthrough

Woods insisted he was capable of competing for a 16th major title after playing 23 holes on Friday for a record 24th straight, but dropped to the 82-hole third round instead.

Woods followed a bogey on the fourth with a great birdie on the difficult fifth, but then bogeyed the sixth and ran a double bogey on the seventh.

The 15-time major champion also made a double bogey on the eighth for the first time in his career and dropped another shot on the ninth on the front nine of 42.

Masters match times: 4th round groups and schedule

We've reached the final day of the Masters, and world number one and current leader Scottie Scheffler will be paired with Collin Morikawa when they head out on Sunday night for one final round.

Rory McIlroy was one of those to suffer disappointment heading into the weekend and was unable to put himself back among the contenders after one round on Saturday left him in the T21 bracket, while Tiger Woods made a record 24th straight cut in the tournament, only to struggle after… That's from a hot day yesterday, where I scored the 10th round.

Woods will be with amateur Neil Shipley in Sunday's final round, while Cameron Davis and Nicolai Hoggard will also be in attendance on the final day.

Scottie Scheffler leads by one shot in the final round of the Masters

Trying to win his second Masters title in three years, Schaeffler carded a third round of 71 to finish seven under par, a shot behind fellow American Collin Morikawa, whose 69 was one of only two under 70 scores on Saturday.

Max Homa is two shots behind the lead after a 73 that included 17 balls and one bogey, with Sweden's Ludwig Aberg another shot behind, the 24-year-old having only turned professional 10 months ago.

Both Aberg and Ryder Cup teammate Nicolai Hojgaard have a chance to become the first player since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979 to win in their Masters debut, with Hojgaard briefly holding the lead after a hat-trick of birdies from the eighth.

But Hojgaard then bogeyed the next five holes and would start the final round five shots off the pace.
