For being a Masters without Tiger Woods, the 2014 Masters has been pretty awesome. A player did shoot 30 on his front nine today. That is incredible considering that score tied the front-nine record at the Masters. Well, there is just one day of golf left to be played, so let’s take a look at the five biggest storylines going into the final round.

Bubba Watson is a pretty big name in golf and he is tied for the lead. I am not talking about Mr. Watson, though. I am talking about players like Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy. McIlroy has a lot of work to do if he plans on winning his first Masters and Scott isn’t too far ahead of him.

Still, it will be interesting to see if some of the more popular golfers can make some noise.

Back to Bubba. He didn’t have the greatest round in the world today -- shot 74 -- but he is still tied for the lead. Watson has the advantage of being here before. He already has one green jacket. Will he bring home another one on Sunday?

Jordan Spieth is tied for the lead going into the final round of the 2014 Masters. He is only 20 years old. Spieth will certainly make a bunch of headlines if he can come away with the victory.

Rickie Fowler got back into this tournament by firing a 67 today. Fowler now sits in fifth place at minus-3. I am sure Fowler will eventually win a major tournament. Eventually could be as soon as Sunday.

Yes, Bubba Watson is at the top of the leaderboard, but things can change in a hurry. One hole can make or break a player’s tournament. That is especially true in the final round. There are 13 players who are in the negatives and every single one could come away with the victory.

Woods may not be in this tournament, but that has completely opened the door for everyone else.
