Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia start the final round of The Masters as one-shot leaders.

The duo lead the packed field, with Rickie Fowler in third place. Overall, there are eight players within five shots of the lead.

The greatest Masters 54-hole comeback came in 1956, when Jack Burke Jr. defeated Ken Venturi by a shot, despite starting the final round eight-shots back. Venturi shot an 80, while Burke went around Augusta in 71, to win by a shot on +1.

As recently as 1996, Nick Faldo overcame a five-shot deficit going into the final round, to defeat Greg Norman. Such was Norman's implosion, Faldo won by five strokes.

Ahead of Sunday's final round, every player that is under-par can claim to have a chance of winning the season's opening major.
