Brandt Snedeker hits on the 12th hole during the third round of the Masters golf tournament, Apr. 13, 2013, in Augusta, Ga.

Two golfers are entering Sunday's final round of the Masters tied for the lead while top ranked Tiger Woods avoided disqualification and is just four strokes back.

Argentina's Angel Cabrera, the 2009 Masters champion, is tied for the lead with the United States' Brandt Snedeker. Both shot a 69 in Saturday's third round in Augusta, Georgia, finishing the day seven-under par.

Australia's Adam Scott is just one stroke behind the leaders, followed by two other Australians -- Marc Leishman and Jason Day.

Before Saturday's round got under way, Tiger Woods, who is favored to win this year's Masters, was given a two-shot penalty for incorrectly placing his ball back on the 15th hole after hitting it into the water Friday. Woods could have been disqualified. But even with the damaging penalty, he enters Sunday's final round tied for seventh place, just four strokes behind the co-leaders.

Fourteen-year-old Chinese golf sensation Guan Tianlang, the youngest player ever to compete in the Masters, goes into Sunday in 59th place.
