It’s Moving Day at Augusta National Golf Club and at 6-under par, Tiger Woods is already in contention.

The 14-time major champion is in pursuit of his fifth green jacket at the 2019 Masters and enters the third round just one shot off five-way leaders Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen.

Tiger tees off alongside Ian Poulter at 2:05 p.m. ET. Follow his Saturday round below with shot-by-shot analysis:

Hole 17: Par 4, 440 yards

OFF THE TEE: Baba booey! Mashed Potatoes! Tiger smokes this one down the fairway. He’s feelin’ it.

Hole 16: Par 3, 160 yards

OFF THE TEE: 9-iron here from Tiger and he’s all over it. He lands this one just beyond the hole, coming to rest within 10 feet. That birdie putt could give Tiger a share of the lead.

ON THE GREEN: (Insert Tiger roar here). Tiger walked this one in and climbs to the top of the leaderboard.

Hole 15: Par 5, 530 yards

OFF THE TEE: Boom goes the dynamite. He cranks this one down the left side of the fairway.

APPROACH SHOT: Tiger caught all of this one, and he goes off the back side of the green. That’ll leave a testy chip onto the dance floor with water on the opposite side.

AROUND THE GREEN: Incredible chip there from Tiger was rolling right at the cup before checking up two feet short.

ON THE GREEN: Taps it in for birdie, one shot back. Here we go.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 4-under thru 15 (10-under overall)

Hole 14: Par 4, 440 yards

OFF THE TEE: Smart shot as Tiger lays off this one, finding the fairway with a 3-wood.

APPROACH SHOT: Tiger finds the green, but he’s well away from the cup. He’ll need to hammer this one uphill, but hey, it’s a birdie putt.

ON THE GREEN: Plenty of pace but not the right line here, missing just left.

Hole 13: Par 5, 510 yards

OFF THE TEE: Oh boy. Tiger played this one aggressive, and it looks like he’s going to pay for that one after finding the right trees.

SECOND SHOT: Sike. He got a friendly kick and he’s just in the rough. Lucky break. He bends this one around the corner, laying up in the middle of the fairway. It won’t be easy, but he can still get up-and-down for birdie from there.

APPROACH SHOT: From 69 yards out Tiger hits this a few feet to the right of the flagstick, puts on the brakes and it checks up just beyond the hole outside five feet.

ON THE GREEN: Jar. Tiger converts the birdie putt and climbs into second place, two shots off the lead.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2-under thru 13 (9-under overall)
