AFTER conceding he was out of contention Marc Leishman is preparing a last round assault to salvage a result at The Masters.
The 35-year-old, who is tied for 31st after firing a two-under 70 on Sunday morning, can book his spot for next year's Masters if he can finish in the top 12 at Augusta National.
It would save Leishman, and fellow Australian Cameron Smith, from having to qualify for the prestigious annual event in 2020.
The Warrnambool export has made a habit of salvaging results in his rise to be the world No.20 and he said it would not change in Monday's finale.
"Oh yeah, there is still a lot to play for; a lot of world ranking points, FedEx Cup points and you can get yourself into next year's event," Leishman said.
"It's a go-for-broke day, really. I'm tied for 30th at the moment and we don't come to Augusta to finish 30th.
"So I will try shoot a really low one and see what happens."
Leishman fired four birdies and an eagle across his 18 holes but four bogeys saw him only pull back two shots on the leader Italy's Francesco Molinari, who is 13 under after three rounds.
The eagle was a result of a 47-foot putt on the par-5 15th, which put him at two under.
Smith is one shot ahead of Leishman in 25th, while countrymen Jason Day and Adam Scott are four and five shots ahead respectively.
