Tommy Fleetwood shot the round of the day on the Saturday at the Masters to throw his hat into the ring for a Sunday challenge.
With ‘moving day’ the talk of the afternoon on a leaderboard filled with star names, the Englishman made the most of his first Saturday afternoon at Augusta National and fired off seven birdies.
He three-putted the last for a 66 and said the soft conditions made the course there for the taking.
“The course was playing a lot easier. The greens were soft. If you’re going to shoot a good score, todays the day,” said Fleetwood, who had five birdies on the spin from 11.

“It weird walking off disappointed shooting a 66. I didn’t hole anything on the front but it was night to get something going.
“Today was about doing the best I could. It’s my first weekend ever at Augusta but I wasn’t thinking about the lead. It was nice playing the last few holes with a bit of adrenaline.”
