AUGUSTA, GA. - The final round of the 79th Masters tournament is under way.
The skies are overcast and there is a threat of rain late. There's some wind, and the pins dot Augusta National's famous greens in their traditional Sunday placements.
The big headline: Jordan Spieth. Can put any pressure on the 21-year old from Texas, who tries to become the first Southerner since Ben Crenshaw 20 years ago to win the Masters? He starts the day with a four-stroke lead over 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, five strokes over three-time Masters winner Phil Mickelson and six over Charley Hoffman.
If Mickelson could rally to win, at 44, it would be one of the most remarkable stories here ever. He would tie Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer for second-most green jackets behind only Jack Nicklaus with six.
Former University High golfer Patrick Reed is already on the course, and defending and two-time champion Bubba Watson goes off at 11:30 a.m. CDT with Lafayette native Ted Scott on the bag.
Here are today's final five parings (tee times CDT):
1:10 p.m.: Dustin Johnson (-6) and Hideki Matsuyama (-5)
1:20 p.m.: Kevin Streelman (-6) and Kevin Na (-6)
1:30 p.m.: Rory McIlroy (-6) and Tiger Woods (-6)
1:40 p.m.: Phil Mickelson (-11) and Charley Hoffman (-10)
1:50 p.m.: Jordan Spieth (-16) and Justin Rose (-12)
The final round will be televised by CBS (for the 60th consecutive year) starting at 1 p.m. Coverage is under way at Masters.com.
