Final round should be good, looking like a battle between Woods and Molinari, Woods putting was superb yesterday and Molinari hasn't dropped a shot since Thursday. Can't rule out Finau or Koepka. Early start today as bad weather is expected later, leaders tee off at 2.20 pm BST

Molinari would win me 284 so I'm fully expecting an implosion today!

It's been a brilliant masters so far. Lots of great players still in with a chance. If you are within 4 shots going down the back nine on masters sunday then you have a chance.

If Moli can't get over the line, then I would love to see Poulter don the green jacket. Would be thoroughly deserved personal glory after years of Ryder Cup brilliance.

Looking like Tiger has it in the bag now. Played well and has taken advantage of some outrageous luck at times today.

Molinari decides to completely choke for the 1st time in years. Only fucking player over par amongst anyone with even an iota of a chance going into the final round. Someone has obviously informed him about my bet.

Not a huge fan of Tiger Woods but simply have to respect this achievement.

I did always think he'd come back and win one more major, he came close last year a few times. Doubt he'll beat the Nicklaus record though.

Great effort from him. Played the big moments brilliantly, took advantage of his good fortune and utilised the crowd perfectly. Bet he thought he would have to shoot lower than 70 to win today. Bigger picture, to get back from where he was a few years ago, to being able to compete in and win majors against a field far stronger than in his heyday is a remarkable achievement.

Molinari blew it on the 12th hole, as many have on Masters Sunday. With a 2 shot lead, the line of shot he chose was pure insanity. He never recovered mentally from that shot.

Why he didn't just play the simple shot to the middle of the green and take his 2 putt is beyond me. Would have been extremely difficult for the field to catch him from there.

Well done Tiger one of the great sporting comebacks, interesting to see now how he will perform in the rest of the majors this year. His target has always been to beat Nicklaus' record of 18 majors, he's on 15 now, as long as he can stay fit, must have a pretty good chance of doing it.

Great. We're never going to hear the end of this. Even when he was playing shite, Sky would always cover him as if he was the only golf player in the world...that will now be ramped up a few hundred times. Oh well...he's allegedly done some bad things, been through loads of personal shite throughout his lifetimes, fought threw injury after injury...and now he's won the Masters again. I suppose some would call that redemption.

I'd say he has got a chance.

What I would say, is that the overall standard of the field now is infinitely better than it was in Woods pomp, so he'll need to probably keep improving (as daft as that may sound)

The beauty of golf at the moment is there is Atleast a dozen players capable of winning these tournaments. Most have won majors now too. To have Tiger back winning is a brilliant sporting and life story.

I don't understand. Tiger Woods chucks his career away by nobbing other women than his own wife, crashing cars whilst pissed and off his tits on drugs but he's a hero because he doesn't do that any more?

Joey Barton for Bells manager of the month anyone?
