AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The Latest on the third round of the Masters (all times local):

12:55 p.m.

Jordan Spieth had an encouraging start to his third round after a birdie on No. 1.

Those good feelings didn't last long. He sent his tee shot on No. 2 way to the right and into the trees, setting off a tough chain of shots that eventually resulted in a double bogey.

He recovered with a birdie on No. 3, but the inconsistent play has kept him away from the top of the leaderboard.

Spieth, the 2015 Masters Champion, is at even-par for the tournament, seven shots behind the leaders.

Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen are in a five-way tie for the lead. They are all scheduled to tee off Friday between 2:25 and 2:45 p.m.

Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Justin Harding and Xander Schauffele are all one shot back.
