Tim Clark missed the cut in three of the past four years at Augusta National Golf Club.
But he’s right in the hunt at this year’s Masters after a 5-under-par 67 on Saturday. That marks Clark’s best ever round in the tournament. His best previous round was 69 when he finished second in 2006.
“This surprises me,” Clark said. “I thought I'd shot better rounds than that out there, but it was gettable for me (Saturday) being firmer, the fairways being firmer anyway, and going off early, the front nine, the greens are somewhat receptive, so I was able to get some birdies early and sort of try and hang on.”
Clark ended the day at 3 under after rounds of 70-76-67.
“I don't think I'm going to be that far back to be honest,” Clark said. “Obviously it all depends what the other guys do. But it is firming up out there. There's a little bit of wind swirling around. I feel like I'll be in pretty good shape.”
