Some of the best images from the third round of the 2014 Masters at Augusta National in Georgia

The Masters Tournament moved into full swing during an enthralling third day at Augusta National.

After the windy conditions and tough pin placements in the first and second rounds, more lenient positioning and more placid conditions facilitated a host of birdies and a number of brilliant performances.

Perhaps the most impressive came from 20-year-old Masters debutant Jordan Spieth, who carded a two-under-par 70 to reach five-under-par and enter the final round tied for the lead with Bubba Watson (74).

Jonas Blixt and Matt Kuchar sit one back, with Rickie Fowler and Miguel Angel Jimenez two adrift on three-under-par.

Lee Westwood (-2) and Justin Rose (-1) are still in the hunt following solid rounds on Saturday.
