AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Bubba Watson would've preferred to play better, of course.

He's not complaining too much, though. Not when he has a share of the lead heading to the final round of the Masters.

Watson struggled to a 2-over 74 Saturday after two straight rounds in the 60s, his card marred by four bogeys on the front side and some ugly three-putt pars.

On moving day, he headed in the wrong direction, renewing the hopes of his closest challengers. But Watson played just good enough to keep his spot in the final group with 20-year-old Jason Spieth, the two of them tied at 5-under 211 after a warm, sunny day at Augusta National.

Watson says he's not down on himself. He's still confident about his chances of claiming a second green jacket.
