Tommy Fleetwood was pleased with his display at the Masters on Saturday as he shot a 66 to move into contention for the Green Jacket.

The world number 12 is joint sixth after 54 holes, eight strokes behind leader Patrick Reed, who carded a 67 on Saturday to finish the third day three shots clear of Rory McIlroy in second.

Rickie Fowler is third on nine-under, with Jon Rahm one shot further back after a seven-under-65.

Henrik Stenson is on seven-under with 18 holes left to play, while Bubba Watson and Marc Leishman join Fleetwood on six-under.

"It's nice to be talked about as one of the guys that is doing well, whether it's from England or Europe or wherever," said Fleetwood, who is competing in his second Masters.

"It's nice to have your game going in a good direction. I'm just happy that I shot that score today and put myself into some kind of spot on the leaderboard.

"Majors are the toughest tests, and that's where your game gets found out most of the time. That's ultimately where you want to be - and to win them, which is what everybody's dreams and aspirations are."

Fleetwood can be backed at 4000/1 to win the Masters, while McIlroy is available at 4000/1, Watson at 3000/1 and Reed at 1/12.
