Xander Schauffele of the United States and Keegan Bradley of the United States talk with a rules official as greenskeeper remove water from the 12th green during the third round of the 2023 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club on April 08, 2023 in Augusta, Georgia.

The third round of The Masters has been suspended for the day, after weather and course conditions worsened severely at Augusta National Golf Club.

Masters officials said the third round will resume Sunday at 8:30 a.m., with live coverage on CBS. Final round play is expected to begin at 12:30 p.m., with players playing in pairings instead of groupings, but still a shotgun start on hole 1 and 10, to expedite play.

Saturday started with the completion of the second round, and the third round began at 11:30 a.m., with players playing in groups of three, and starting on the first and ninth holes.

Almost four hours of play was completed, with the earliest starters completing 13 holes before play was suspended.

Brooks Koepka holds the lead at 13-under through 6 holes. Jon Rahm is four shots back at 9-under through 6. Sam Bennett is 6-under through 6.
