Tiger Woods poised to strike as Francesco Molinari leads Masters

(CNN)If Saturday at the Masters was electric, Sunday could be supercharged.

The threat of severe thunderstorms has forced Augusta National officials to instigate a two-tee start in groups of three, with the leading trio of Francesco Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau off at 09:20 a.m. ET instead of in pairs mid afternoon.
The hope is to get the fireworks wrapped up on the course before they come down from the sky.
In Saturday's third round, if you weren't surging forwards you were going backwards.
    Four-time champion Woods parred his first four holes and was disappearing in the leaders' rear view mirror, but when he finally engaged gear at the seventh, he, too, roared up the leaderboard. A fifth birdie at the 16th sparked a tumultuous roar as he tied for the lead.
    By the end of a sun-drenched, dazzling day of golf, Italy's British Open champion Molinari held a two-shot lead at 13 under over Woods and Finau going into the final round.

    'Great test'

    Woods, of course, is trying to pull off a fairytale comeback with a fifth Green Jacket 14 years after his last, and a 15th major 11 years after his previous triumph. Inspired by his comeback season last year from spine fusion surgery, including second at the US PGA and culminating in a first victory for five years at the Tour Championship, Woods is rekindling memories of his heyday.
    The 43-year-old has now been in white-hot contention in his last three majors and retains the steely focus of the old warrior.
    "This is a chance to win a major championship so I'm ready," he told BBC Sport, talking of Sunday's early start. Woods also said he was embracing the idea of adding to his major tally.
    "That's part of the deal," he said. "I'm playing for my fifth but I'm trying to win a golf tournament at the end of the day. I've just got to go out and execute. It's going to be a great test for all of us."
