Hunter Mahan is even par through the front nine of Sunday's final round of the 2012 Masters. Mahan began his round with a bogey on the opening hole but was able to get that stroke back with a birdie on No. 3.
Throughout the tournament, Mahan has typically made his move on the back nine. On Friday and Saturday he recorded birdies on No. 12, 13 and 15. He will need a repeat of that performance to close the gap between himself and current leader Louis Oosthuizen. Mahan shot opening rounds of 72 on both Thursday and Friday before firing a 4-under 68 on Saturday.
Mahan is currently tied for eighth place five strokes behind Oosthuizen and three strokes back of second place Bubba Watson and Peter Hanson.
