AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Playing in the day's penultimate group, Angel Cabrera just birdied the 10th hole at Augusta National to grab sole possession of the Masters lead at 7 under.
Cabrera, who vaulted into contention when he birdied five of his last six holes in the second round, now leads Aussies Jason Day and Marc Leishman by one stroke. Day has just made the turn after grinding out nine pars while Leishman, who is playing with Cabrera, is 1 under for the day.
Matt Kuchar, who won the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in February and will defend his PLAYERS title next month, is the leader in the clubhouse at 4 under after Saturday's 69. The round was his second in the 60s this week.
Also at 4 under are Steve Stricker, who has one hole remaining, and reigning FedExCup champ Brandt Snedeker. Snedeker has made 11 pars on Saturday.
Tim Clark posted an early round of 67 to get to 3 under. Also on the course at that number are Adam Scott and Jim Furyk, who have played 11 holes, and Fred Couples, who just made the turn with Day.
