Former UNLV golfer Charley Hoffman had a two-shot lead at the 13th hole during the third round of the Masters this afternoon; however, a shot in the water and double bogey on 16 dropped him to 4 under.

Hoffman is tied for fourth with former Rebel Ryan Moore as they trail leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia by 2 shots heading into Sunday’s final round. Former Rebel and 2013 champion Adam Scott is also within 3 shots of the lead at 2 under par.

The inaugural Pro Football Arm Wrestling Championship concludes in Las Vegas tonight but not without controversy. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says all the players involved could face suspensions for violating the league’s casino policy.
