Bubba Watson has roared back into a tie for the lead at the 2012 Masters with an incredible back-nine performance. At six-under after a bogey on the par-3 12th hole, Watson then birdied 13, 14, 15, 16 in succession to tie his group partner Louis Oosthuizen at ten-under. Oosthuizen has put up two crucial birdies to also stay at ten-under. Both got into trouble at 17 with their tee shots, but managed to rally and save pars (Watson nearly knocking in a birdie attempt to take the outright lead). Then both put in pars on 18 to finish their rounds at -10.
Matt Kuchar was briefly in the lead after his eagle on the par-5 15th, but a poor tee shot on 16 took a stroke away and he finished at -8. Lee Westwood did finish at -8 as well thanks to a solid four-under back nine, and Phil Mickelson has just made up all the strokes he lost from his early triple bogey on the 4th hole, and would need a miraculous rally to get into the playoff.
