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.
