Going into Saturday's action, Hideki Matsuyama had been cruising along with back-to-back 4-under 68s at Augusta National. His second round effort on Friday was bogey free. The same cannot be said of his third round.

Matsuyama made four bogeys, all of them on par-4 holes (Nos. 5, 9, 10 and 17). These errors nullified his four birdies, leaving him tied for 10th with an even-par 72.

"Yeah, today I really didn't play my best golf," Matsuyama said. "I wasn't in control of my game. But hopefully that'll turn around tomorrow and I'll do my best."

The 28-year-old finds himself in big-name company on the leaderboard, as he is tied with Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood.
