5 things to watch Sunday at the Masters

Posted:
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -

The final round of the Masters is Sunday and here are five things you should keep an eye on:
   --------
   THE BACK 9
   The saying is the Masters doesn't begin until Sunday on the back 9, and often it's true. Tiger Woods believes anyone within six strokes on the back 9 can win, and with 17 players within six shots after the third round it could be a wild finish.
   --------
   RATING TIGER
   Love him or hate him, you can't stop watching him, as girlfriend Lindsey Vonn does. Ratings for the Masters would have plummeted had Woods been disqualified for his bad drop. Now he's in the mix on Sunday, just four shots back, and the cameras will have no trouble finding him.
   ------
   GUAN'S FINISH
   Guan Tianlang has made a lot of news this week, not all of it good. The 14-year-old from China is the youngest player ever in the Masters, and the youngest to make the cut. He speeded his game up Saturday after being penalized for slow play and it cost him with a 5-over 77.
   --------
   CABRERA'S MASTERS
   Every other year, Angel Cabrera  has a Masters to remember. He won in the final group in 2009, played in the final group in 2011, and will be in the final group Sunday with Brandt Snedeker. Can the Argentine win a second green jacket? Stay tuned.
   ----------
   A BIG DAY
   Jason Day parred his first 12 holes Saturday and was in the lead after 16 holes before finishing with his only two bogeys of the day. For Day to win his first major title he'll have to be even steadier under the pressure of Sunday at the Masters. No Australian has ever won the Masters, Greg Norman famously included.
