2009 Masters Day 3 - Return of the Perry!

Not many players made a significant move on moving day at Augusta National. One player who did was former US Open champion Angel Cabrera, who hit his third consecutive round in the sixties. The big hitting Argentinian joined Kenny Perry at the top of the pile after a solid 69. Joint second round leader Chad Campbell had a poor finish to fall two shots behind the leaders in third place.

Neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson made inroads into their deficits, both finishing at -4, seven shots off the pace. Interestingly, they will be paired together for the final round, where hopefully sparks will fly! Padraig Harrington took himself out of contention with a disastrous nine on the par 5 second hole. The Irish man finished at -1 and was quite philosophical afterwards about a tournament that seemed destined not to be his. More information on the day's play (including real time coverage) is available on the Golf Predictor Twitter feed (see panel on the right) and you can see highlights here:
