Cameron Smith and his mullet in contention again

With his mullet flapping in the Georgia breeze, Cameron Smith made sure Scottie Scheffler didn’t run away from everyone else at the Masters.

Thanks to Smith, the leader will have to work for that green jacket.

The 28-year-old Aussie turned in a third round that didn’t seem possible at Augusta National with the unseasonably cold temperatures and strong gusts on Saturday.

Smith shot a 4-under 68 — the only score in the 60s — to pull within three shots of Scheffler and join him in the final group Sunday.

“It was really tough out there,” Smith said. “I think I did a good job of just staying within myself, staying patient with the course. Just hitting lots of quality iron shots, and the putts went in as well.”

This is not an unusual position for Smith.

In five previous Masters appearances, he has three top-10 finishes — including a tie for the runner-up spot behind Dustin Johnson in 2020.
