The 2015 Masters may have belonged to Jordan Spieth so far but on Sunday evening the eyes of the world won’t be fixed on the 21-year-old Texan but the pairing two holes ahead.

The former king, Tiger Woods, and the man who now wears his crown, Rory McIlroy, tee off at 7.30pm (2.30pm local time) in what promises to be the most absorbing match up of the tournament.

The pair arrived at Augusta with decidedly different expectations - Rory looking to emulate Tiger and complete a Major Grand Slam, Woods just trying to prove he’s not completely shot.

Yet the two have matched each other over the first three days and both sit six under par, eight shots off a lead which looks insurmountable.

Spieth may seem uncatchable, but if Tiger and Rory get on a roll - well, who knows?
