2012 Masters Update: Jason Dufner Moves To 6-Under, Fred Couples Sliding

Fred Couples stay at the top of the leaderboard was short lived on Saturday after putting up a bogey on the opening two holes of the third round. Couples playing partner Jason Dufner recorded a par on the opening hole and a birdie on the 2nd to take sole possession of first place at 6-under for the tournament.

Lee Westwood birdied the second hole to also move to 5-under for the tournament and is currently alone in second place. Westwood led for most of Friday before a double bogey on the 18th hole dropped him to 4-under.

Three players are all four under including Henrik Stenson who is 2-under on Saturday and Georgia Tech alum Matt Kuchar who is 1-under. Louis Oosthuizen is also 4-under and even par for his round on Saturday.
