Masters 2020 live standings, scores and updates

Follow all of the action as The Masters draws to an exciting conclusion Sunday at Augusta National. Dustin Johnson apparently has a hand on the green jacket after a stunning 65 inning yesterday that propelled him to a four-stroke lead on the field. However, the world No.1 wasted a 54-hole lead in the majors on four occasions, which will certainly give hope to a horde of challengers chasing him.

Mexican Abraham Ancer and South Korean Sungjae Im are both debutants in Augusta, but they still share a tie for second with Australia’s Cameron Smith heading into today’s final round. Just behind them are Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm, both of whom will be bitterly disappointed after botched mistakes on Saturday that saw them lose ground on the leader.

For Rory McIlroy, it is apparently already too late to clinch his Grand Slam career, with an opening lap of 75 still weighing on his chances despite a brilliant 66 and 67 in response which saw the Northern Irishman climb into the top 10. Defending champion Tiger Woods has already reluctantly accepted he’s out of range, with some 11 shots separating him from Johnson. Watch all the live action from Augusta below:

THE MASTERS 2020: MCILROY DOES BIRDIE AT 8 YEARS OLD

A nice putt weight in the eighth for McIlroy, who found the green in two and it’s nothing more than a kick-in birdie. He’s three under par for his turn so far and drops to -11, just four shots behind the leader.

THE MASTERS 2020: JOHNSON MEETS 6 YEARS OLD

It’s much better on Johnson’s sixth. A ball in the par-3 stops just past the pin and he’ll have a good birdie look. A rare mistake from Im too, which makes his bullet fly in the back. There is trouble for Smith in the seventh. He pushes his drive horribly and will be very lucky to have a line in the green through the trees.

THE MASTERS 2020: JOHNSON’S MISSES BY PUTT!

It’s becoming a miniature crisis for Johnson, and it’s nothing we’ve never seen before. He hits a fantastic approach in the fifth to give himself a big chance of an unlikely high and low. The putt isn’t convincing, however, and it slips to the low side. The advance is reduced to one!

THE MASTERS 2020: JOHNSON FINDS BUNKER AT 5 AS SMITH BOGEYS

Problem for the leading pack in the fifth. Smith’s approach flies over the back of the green, he can’t kill a delicate chip near the hole and it’s a bogey for the Aussie. It falls back to -13. Johnson is in all kinds of trouble, however. His drive finds the bunker and he can only launch into the fairway. He’ll be very lucky to escape without another scarecrow here.

THE 2020 MASTERS: JOHNSON BOGEYS THE FOURTH

Things are getting really interesting now. Johnson’s putt veers to the low side of the hole and catches the lip. It’s going too fast to fall and it’s a scarecrow for the leader. I can’t sink the birdie putt, but nonetheless Johnson’s lead was halved in the span of four holes. Ancer’s misery continues and he drops another blow.

THE MASTERS 2020: UN SPOT OF BOTHER POUR JOHNSON AT 4

Johnson chooses to putter from the four-way bangs but his ball takes a horrible bump and it kills the pace completely. He will have a nervous putt to save normal.

THE MASTERS 2020: MCILROY drops to -10

Very well from McIlroy to the sixth par 3. His tee shot finds the green safe and he rolls into the 19-foot birdie putt. That brings it to -10 and a tie for the sixth.

THE MASTERS 2020: IM STRAIGHT ON 4

Im brilliant, who walks straight off the fourth tee and steals a long iron within birdie range. It also improves as you descend the slope towards the flag. Johnson’s effort is just short on the fringe at the front of the green, but he should have some trouble up and down from there. No more problems for Ancer, however, who finds the sand.

THE MASTERS 2020: JOHNSON RESPONDS WITH A BIRD

It’s a huge putt from Johnson. It has always been doable, but it will do wonders for his nerves. He only had one chip on the third green but he goes a good 12 feet past the flag. He takes a long time to study it and manages the break perfectly. It’s his first birdie of the day after what looked like a slight wobble on the second. Im no respite, however, who also birdies. The South Korean rookie joined Smith at -14.

THE MASTERS 2020: NO NERVES FOR SMITH

Smith finds himself with a first test of his nerves in the fourth, where his tee shot found the bunker on the greenside. However, he takes on the challenge with flying colors, using the slope to his advantage as the ball passes within gimme range. He certainly seems the most likely to catch Johnson at the moment. Meanwhile, Ancer unleashes a shot on the third after finding the bunker with his tee shot.
