2012 Masters Leaderboard: Peter Hanson, Phil Mickelson In Sunday's Final Pairing

Tiger Woods will enter Sunday's final round at Augusta National Golf Club not in the hunt, but there's no doubt that the 2012 Masters is going to have one thrilling finish. That's because Phil Mickelson, who carded a 6-under par, 66, Saturday, moved to 7-under par overall will play with round-three leader Peter Hanson (8-under par) in the final group of the final day of the Masters.

Though, Mickelson's back-nine finish of 6-under was impressive, the overall play of Hanson, 7-under on the day, was maybe the biggest story of the day. Hanson will start the final round one shot ahead of Mickelson and two better than South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Bubba Watson will be three strokes back of Hanson, while Matt Kuchar is four behind.

Northern Ireland's Padraig Harrington, USA's Hunter Mahan, Sweden's Henrik Stenson and England's Lee Westwood will all be five strokes worse than the leader.

For those looking for any Woods magic on Sunday, well, its probably not going to happen has he's at 3-over par. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlory is 1-over par.

2012 Masters Leaderboard: Keegan Bradley Finishes Round 3 At 1-Over Par

Starting Saturday's third round at the Masters, Keegan Bradley need to make a day-three charge up the leaderboard to have a shot at his second consecutive major championship. Unfortunately, Augusta National Golf Club wasn't cooperative and the charge never came for Bradley, who finished his third round at 1-over par on the day and is now 5-over overall.

Bradley, a native of Woodstock, VT, will have little to no chance of making a Sunday's comeback, as more than 50-plus golfers will be standing in his way. Two of those are leaders Fred Couples and Jason Dufner, who have yet to start their third rounds. Both Couples, who's 52-years-old, and Dufner is at 5-under par.

Currently, one of the golfer making a climb up the leaderboard is England's Justin Rose, who's 3-under thru eight holes and sits at 3-under overall, two shots back.

As for Tiger Woods, there was hasn't been any magic on Saturday. Right now, Tiger is even-par for the day is sits at 3-over par overall, eight strokes behind the leaders.
