Garcia, Rose Share Masters LeadSergio Garcia overcame his third-round woes at the Masters to take a share of the 54-hole lead with Justin Rose. Garcia had a few slip-ups (two bogeys), but three birdies kept him on pace. Sometimes you just want to find footing amid the chaos of moving day, and Garcia did that. Rare is the spot that Sergio finds himself atop the leaderboard in a major championship heading into Saturday and Sunday, but that’s what we have here. A great final pairing with Rose is on deck for Sunday. Garcia’s an old 37, having been a known golfer in the public eye almost half his life. He’s chasing down that elusive first major. Rose had a brilliant finish. Rose was looking just-OK through the first nine at even par — and then the charge came. Rose went off with birdies on 12, 13 and 15, then consecutive birdies to close out his round on 17 and 18. It was a roar of a day to finish with a 67 and get to the top of the leaderboard. Rose has never won the Masters, coming closest in 2015 when he tied for second. His only major win came in 2013 at the U.S. Open.
