By Steve Keating AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters) – Nightmare winds and a dream pairing had golf fans buzzing as defending champion Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy prepared for a wild third round at a windswept Augusta National on Saturday. Two of golf’s young guns and most charismatic players, Spieth and McIlroy will take on each other and hellish gusting winds in one of the most anticipated final pairings ever featured at the year’s first major. Spieth heads into the third round with a one-shot advantage, having held the outright Masters lead after a record six consecutive rounds, while McIlroy chased down his American rival with a late charge on Friday to put his major grand slam bid back on track.
