Masters Golf Tournament 2012 Leaderboard: Louis Oosthuizen's Double Eagle Helps Snag Lead

For those to have a chance at earning a green jacket on Sunday, one must start their final round at Augusta National Golf Club strong. That's just what South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen has done, using a double eagle on the par-5, Hole No. 2 to take a two stroke lead on Phil Mickelson and Peter Hanson.

Oosthuizen's improbable feat pushed his score from 7-under par to 10-under in just one swing, and now Mickelson and third-round leader Hanson are playing catch up. There's still a lot of holes to play, as Oosthuizen is thru three holes, and Mickelson and Hanson are thru two.

Meanwhile, Westchester, Pa. native Jim Furyk has complete his first nine holes in the final round at one-over par. Furyk is currently even for the championship.

Masters 2012 Tee Times And Pairings: Phil Mickelson, Peter Hanson Last Group In Tight Sunday Field

After three days of amazing golf, the 2012 Masters comes to a conclusion Sunday and there's no reason to believe that at Augusta National Golf Club there will not be roars finding its way onto the course. One of the reasons is because fan favorite Phil Mickelson will be teeing off in the final group with championship leader, Sweden's Peter Hanson, who on Saturday carded a 7-under par, 65, to take a one stroke lead (8-under par overall) over Lefty.

The pair will tee off 2:40 p.m. ET and will follow South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson, who each will begin at 2:30 p.m. Behind those four players are five more who're within five shots of the lead, a margin that isn't too much to make a charge at.

Meanwhile, Westchester, PA resident, Sean O'Hair is currently at 2-under par, seven strokes off the lead, and will tee off at 1:40, while Westchester native, Jim Furyk, is at 1-under par, eight strokes back, and will begin at 12:50 p.m.

Masters Golf Tournament 2012: Peter Hanson, Phil Mickelson Finish Round 3 A Top Leaderboard

Sunday's final pairing at Augusta National Golf Club will not be Tiger Woods against Rory McIlroy, but it will feature Phil Mickelson. The one they call "lefty" carded a 6-under par, 66, Saturday, and to move to 7-under par overall, which was good enough to place him in the final tee time with round-three leader Peter Hanson (8-under par). The pair were the two biggest movers on day three, and will be rewarded with a solid shot to win the coveted green jacket.

Though, Mickelson's back-nine finish of 6-under was impressive, the overall play of Hanson, 7-under on the day, was maybe the biggest story of the day. Hanson will start the final round one shot ahead of Mickelson and two better than South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Bubba Watson will be three strokes back of Hanson, while Matt Kuchar is four behind.

Northern Ireland's Padraig Harrington, Hunter Mahan, Sweden's Henrik Stenson and England's Lee Westwood will all be five strokes worse than the leader.

For those looking for any Woods magic on Sunday, well, its probably not going to happen has he's at 3-over par. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlory is 1-over par.
