Masters Golf Tournament 2012 Leaderboard: Peter Hanson, Phil Mickelson Will Be Sunday's Final Pairing

Come Sunday, Tiger Woods will not be in the final pairing at Augusta National Golf Club, but the 2012 Masters will get the next best thing -- Phil Mickelson. The one they call "lefty" carded a 6-under par, 66, Saturday to move to 7-under par overall and will have the final tee time with round-three leader Peter Hanson (8-under par). The pair were the two biggest movers on day three, and will be rewarded with a solid shot to win the coveted green jacket.

Though, Mickelson's back-nine finish of 6-under was impressive, the overall play of Hanson, 7-under on the day, was maybe the biggest story of Saturday. Hanson will start the final round one shot ahead of Mickelson and two better than South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Bubba Watson will be three strokes back of Hanson, while Matt Kuchar is four behind.

Northern Ireland's Padraig Harrington, Hunter Mahan, Sweden's Henrik Stenson and England's Lee Westwood will all be five strokes worse than the leader.

For those looking for any Woods magic on Sunday, well, its probably not going to happen has he's at 3-over par. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlory is 1-over par.
