It's the penultimate day's play at this year's first Major, taking place at the spectacular Augusta National course in Georgia USA.
Financial considerations will be of secondary importance to those professionals seeking to join the tournament's youngest winner, Tiger Woods , and its oldest Jack Nicklaus , as members of the elite band of players entitled to wear the coveted Green Jacket presented to the champion.
When play finished at this stage last year
Phil Mickelson , who had never won a Major, was tied for the lead with Chris DiMarco , also Majorless. DiMarco shot a four-under-par 68, and Mickelson carded 69 to bring them to a six-under 210 for 54 holes. They were being chased by Masters rookie Paul Casey of England, two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer , three-time Major champion Ernie Els and KJ Choi.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
