Tim Clark hits a 67 on the third round at the Masters to move up the leaderboard into joint-ninth.

South African Tim Clark has hit a 67 at the third round of the Masters in Augusta, a score of six-under for the day.

Clark's second-round 76 left him struggling tied for 37th but a fine round has moved him right up the leaderboard and he is now tied for ninth with three-under overall.

His day started superbly as he birdied five of the first seven holes and would have equalled the lowest round with 66 but a bogey on the last was an unfortunate end to the session for him.

American Nick Watney also performed remarkably well on his round, especially on the back nine.

He eagled the 15th to go with his birdies on the 11th, 13th, 14th and 16th to move up 28 places into 20th on one-under.
