Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera share the 54-hole lead at the 2013 Masters tournament, but plenty of big names aren't far behind in their respective bids to snag the green jacket.
The final round traditionally features several flip-flops atop the leaderboard, especially when the contenders come down Amen Corner. Mistakes made in the first three holes of that stretch can be remedied at its conclusion on the par-five 13th, but greedily attacking the green in two can be costly.
Below is a list of the tee times for the final day of Sunday's action at Augusta National, as well as several predictions as to what prospective developments will make the biggest headlines.

Predicting Top Storylines
Australia Comes up Empty
Marc Leishman shared the lead after Round 1, and compatriot Jason Day slept on the 36-hole advantage on Friday evening.
Which Australian would you pick to win on Masters Sunday?
It's been surprising to see how resilient Leishman has been in just his second Masters appearance, especially after how poorly he played entering the year's maiden major.
This is the time where the 2009 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year will finally fade, though.
Scott and Day came in a tie for second in the 2011 Masters, but Day has only won once on the PGA Tour. That doesn't exactly bode well for his chances coming down the stretch.
With Stevie Williams on the bag, the former No. 3-ranked Scott has a golden opportunity and a wealth of knowledge to draw from as he tries to win his first major. It's about time that Scott breaks through, but his putting won't be good enough to get it done in the end.
Tiger's Tribulations Continue
Although he has won four times at Augusta, the recent history on Tiger Woods has seen him consistently come up short.
Woods finished in a tie for 40th last year and wasn't a factor, but had posted top-six finishes on every other occasion since his last Masters triumph in a playoff over Chris DiMarco in 2005.
ESPN Stats & Info highlights another valuable nugget about Woods' track record:
Tiger Woods: has never won major when trailing after 54 holes— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) April 13, 2013
A two-stroke penalty is going to be the big storyline outside of who wins the event (h/t New York Post), as it will be just enough to keep him off the winning pace. Despite his lackluster final-round scoring average in 2013, this is a different situation than Woods is used to.
With the luxury of playing a few groups ahead of the leaders, Woods has the chance to reassert the intimidation factor he used to instill in opponents with some early birdies.
A two-under 70 has Woods four off the lead, but that aforementioned penalty will be too much for the living legend to ultimately overcome.
Snedeker Finds Redemption
It's going to be beaten to a pulp with frequent mentions during tomorrow's telecast, but yes, Snedeker did encounter some significant difficulties the last time he was in the final pairing.
In 2008, Snedeker faded with a final-round 77 playing alongside eventual champion Trevor Immelman, and was extremely emotional afterwards—unable to mask the disappointment.
That will make a first major victory even sweeter when Snedeker makes the trek to Butler Cabin on Sunday night as the Masters champion.
Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman can't help but pulling for it to happen herself:
What's not to love about Brandt Snedeker's story? Great guy who wore his heart on his sleeve when he lost. Now a 2nd chance 5 yrs later— Kelly Tilghman (@KellyTilghmanGC) April 13, 2013
On every other big stage in golf—most notably the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup—Snedeker has proven that his phenomenal putting can hold up under pressure. That will be of optimal importance to those hoping to win on Sunday, and other than Woods, no one is as consistently dangerous with the flatstick as the fifth-ranked player in the world.
