2012 Masters Update: Matt Kuchar Slides Back With Double Bogey

Matt Kuchar wrapped up the front nine with a double bogey at the par-4 ninth to fall four shots back at 5-under. Kuchar birdied No. 3 and No. 7 to get to 7-under for the tournament and within two shots of the lead.

Kuchar's approach shot into the ninth left him a tricky putt back down the hill which he missed to the left. His par putt up the hill lipped out leaving him with a three-putt and a disappointing six on the scorecard.

Kuchar currently is tied for fifth with both Ian Poulter who is 3-under in the fourth round and Padraig Harrington who is 1-under on Sunday. On Saturday Kuchar briefly held the lead on Saturday before falling back.
