AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Dustin Johnson is in the record book and one round away from a green jacket. The world’s No. 1 player raced away from a crowded pack with a 7-under 65 and built a four-shot lead in the Masters.

The third round began with 10 players separated by one shot.

Johnson had an eagle and two birdies at the start to seize control. With a par on the final hole, he finished 54 holes at 16-under 200. That ties the Masters record set by Jordan Spieth in 2015.

Johnson will be going for his second major championship.
