“I lucked out with the draw, for sure. We played 11 on without any wind. When I got out of position, I got the most out of it.”

The American has played in eight majors since turning pro in 2018 and has finished in the top-10 four times, including a second place behind Hideki Matsuyama in the 2021 Masters.

“When I took the sole lead on 12, I told my caddie, ‘Let’s enjoy this,’” said Zalatoris. “In my first Masters, I was runner-up and I wanted to enjoy it. I’ll take that same attitude.”

Chile’s Mito Pereira carded a 64 to move into second place at 8-under.

American Justin Thomas, playing in the very windy morning, closed with a 67 that featured a single bogey to move into third place at 6-under.

Compatriot Bubba Watson, who had never before scored better than 68 in his previous 49 rounds in this event, shot a 63 to tie the lowest round in the event’s history and put himself in contention in fourth place at 5-under.

Overnight leader Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland failed to capitalise on the lack of wind in the afternoon and produced two bogeys and a single birdie for a 71. He slips down into a share of fifth place at 4-under alongside Mexico’s Abraham Ancer (69) and Davis Riley (68) of the USA.

Tiger Woods appeared likely to miss the cut after a double bogey at the par-3 11th but recovered with birdies at the 13th and 16th and closed with a 69. He is T53 at 3-over.
