Jordan Spieth was set to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the 80th Masters on Sunday with all signs pointing to lower scoring than the first three days.

Only one player managed to break 70 in Saturday's windy third round at Augusta National, but already French amateur Romain Langasque was in with a 68 -- 15 strokes better off than his third-round effort --- to end his first Masters at 10-over.

First man out Kevin Na, meanwhile, took just 32 on the front nine, but handed back all those shots coming in to stay at 15-over.

England's Ian Poulter had a 71 for 12-over, while Justin Thomas of the United States had the same 1-under score to end at 10-over.

Defending champion Spieth was one clear of fellow American and playing partner Smylie Kaufman with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and German veteran Bernhard langer in the penultimate pairing a further shot back.
