Lee Westwood and Tiger Woods are both still in contention at the Masters despite different fortunes on day three.

Lee Westwood is still in contention at the Masters after round three, despite shooting a one over par 73.

Westwood, who is the leading British player, is currently five shots off the lead at Augusta.

He was disappointed that he could finish with a better score in the end after hitting the ball pretty well throughout Saturday.

"It was hard work out there," Westwood told BBC Sport. "It was tricky.

"The greens are firmer, as they always are on the weekend. I could've shot under par though.

"I was hitting the ball well, eight and 13, and right down the middle on 15 but still couldn't make birdie. I rolled a 70 into a 73 but I've still got a good chance."

Someone else who still has a good chance is Tiger Woods. The world number one put his two-shot penalty behind him to shoot 70 and leave himself within four of the current lead.
