    And that, my friends, is where we part ways. After a topsy-turvy day at Augusta, we have two real heavyweights at the top of the leaderboard.

    Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy will be the last out of the traps on Saturday. Before then, no fewer than 32 men are within six shots of the lead.

    Moving day could see some big moves. Join us then.

  2. 'Spieth will never be as big as Woods or Mickelson'

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    USA Today's Christine Brennan has been telling BBC Radio 5 live sports extra that Jordan Spieth's profile in his home country will never eclipse that of fellow Americans Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson.

    Brennan does not think the Texan, 22, seeks the limelight in the same way as Woods, a four-time Augusta champion.

    “I would say he doesn’t care about public attention – that’s kind of the allure of Jordan Spieth.”

    Adam Scott has birdied the last. The former champ will sleep on four over. Brooks Koepka is three shots better off. This time, we really have finished.

    "You just never know what to expect when you come here. It looked like yesterday. It looked like 68 would be scored but has been nowhere near that."

  6. Post update

    Woah, woah, woah. I've totally gone too early. There's still one group out there. My apologies to Adam Scott, Kevin Kisner and Brooks Koepka. Although, to be honest, only Koepka is making an impression. He's one over.

    "I think anybody within six shots has a chance. It is only Saturday."

  9. Post update

    Daniel Berger, who was as high as second yesterday, ends the 36th hole at level overall. Very much in the mixer. Wales' Jamie Donaldson, forever known as the man who sealed the Ryder Cup, is two over, the same score as Justin Rose.

    That, my friends, is how they will all sleep tonight.

  10. Post update

    They are finishing off on the long evening, the last three men doing the last dance in the fading light. Rose, for par, sees a big move from left to right and sends it by. That'll be a drop on the 18th.

  11. Post update

    Rose looks to have had a little more luck than DeChambeau. He chips out. I'm not sure if there was a drop in there or not. There wasn't. If he can get up and down, he'll make par.

  12. Post update

    Not again? Justin Rose is on the 18th. He's in what can only be described as Bryson DeChambeau country.

  14. Post update

    Phil Mickelson will not be here for the weekend. The three-time champ gives his birdie putt a good chance but it scoots by on the the right of the hole. The birdie needed goes begging, it's par for a total score of seven over. He'll miss the cut by one.

  16. Post update

    Two-time champion Tom Watson, who bowed out of his final Masters with a 78 to finish eight over: "Playing the Masters has always been the rites of spring. I played the Tour and won the tournament. It was always exciting to prepare and play in the tournament.

    "Today was my 43rd time playing and it was a pity I didn't totally stink up the joint! I was disappointed I didn't make the weekend but it is not a bad way to go out.

    "The fans were really very generous with their applause, it was a pleasure. To finish playing at Augusta with my friends and family watching - that's the way to go out."

    Mickelson, all grey with a white cap, in shadow and aiming towards a green bathed in warm evening sunshine. He wants it to go left, it goes left, but too far. It's a monster from there to make the cut.

    Amateur Bryson DeChambeau, who finished on level par: "I just hit a couple of bad drives. I had been driving good and unfortunately messed up but that’s golf, I won't worry about it, I am looking forward to the weekend.

    "It was awesome. I enjoyed Jordan's company out there, I learned a lot out there it was quite fun.

    "It is impossible to know how much this experience will help. I think going forward it will, I just don’t know how much. I am looking forward to the weekend, it is something I can't wait to do."

  20. Post update

    Phil Mickelson has just played his tee shot on the 18th. He needs a birdie to make the cut. Behind him, the final group is playing the 17th.
