Woods goes nowhere, Couples on course at Masters

EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Published:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Fred Couples has started his third round at the Masters with a bogey after failing to get up and down from the right side of the first green.

Jason Dufner made par to start his day and is in the lead at 5-under par, tied with Lee Westwood, who birdied the second hole.

The 52-year-old Couples is trying to win at Augusta National on the 20th anniversary of his title here. He striped his first tee shot down the fairway but blocked the approach. After chipping to about 8 feet, his putt lipped out, leaving him tied for second with Matt Kuchar and Louis Oosthuizen.

Tiger Woods shot even-par 72 and remains at 3 over for the tournament, eight shots out of the lead.
