AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Jordan Spieth has holed out from a bunker and pushed himself to a two-shot lead in the final round of the Masters.

Spieth put his tee shot in the sand right of the green at the par-3 fourth hole Sunday. He knocked the next one in for an unlikely birdie that took his score to 7 under.

The 20-year-old Spieth is trying to become the youngest major champion since 1931 and youngest Masters winner ever. He pulled ahead of Bubba Watson in the final group with a 12-foot birdie putt at the second.

Watson, the 2012 Masters champion, lost more ground with a bogey at the third. He rebounded to make a birdie at the fourth, leaving him at 5 under.

Matt Kuchar and Jonas Blixt are three shots behind.
