Ancer and Fleetwood looking for something special

Abraham Ancer and Tommy Fleetwood are both hoping they can have a "special" Sunday as they look to claim a maiden Major Championship at the 2020 Masters Tournament.

World Number One Dustin Johnson will take a four shot lead into the final round at Augusta National Golf Club and after going 65-70-65 to match the lowest 54 hole score in Masters history at 16 under, it may well take something remarkable to deny him a first Green Jacket.

Ancer heads into Sunday in Georgia in a share of second and while he knows he faces an uphill challenge, he is determined to be ready to capitalise on any chance he may get.

"He's in a spot that he's been there before multiple times, and Number One in the world," he said of Johnson.

"I think he's right where he wants to be. We know that we have to go low and that's it. It's very simple. We have to just make a lot of birdies.

"If DJ goes out there and plays really solid like today, it's going to be pretty much impossible to catch him.  

"The task is easy. You know what to do. It's not going to be easy but, you know, whatever has to be done out there has to be pretty special."

Fleetwood would have to overturn an eight shot deficit if he were to claim Major glory after two second places, but the Englishman is most certainly still in it to win it.

"Looking at the leaderboard, I have no control over what anybody else does," he said. "DJ or Abraham or Justin (Thomas) or any of them. All I can do is play my game and see where I end up at the end of the weekend.

Special days happen. It could be anybody's really. So maybe it will be mine - Tommy Fleetwood

"Generally, if you've made a good account of yourself and you've felt like you played your part, you sort of walk away with your head held high and move on to the next one.

"I think every day you go out, you have to sort of believe that it can be the best day it can possibly be or the best day you've had, and you take it from there.  

"It's not like I'm level par, I'm eight under. I've shot under par for three rounds, which I'm really, really pleased about. I feel like that's a good achievement in itself.  

"And who knows? Special days happen. It could be anybody's really. So maybe it will be mine."
