Bubba Watson shot a 3-under 33 on the front nine at Augusta National, giving him a two-shot lead over 20-year-old Jordan Spieth midway through the final round of the Masters. Watson was down by two strokes as the final group headed to No. 8 on Sunday. Then, suddenly, Spieth stumbled and the 2012 Masters champion seized control with back-to-birdies. Spieth struck an ugly pitch at the par-5 eighth and wound up making bogey, giving up the lead when Watson rapped in a short birdie putt.

Prince William suffered a crushing defeat as he lost to Kate Middleton not once, but twice, during a yachting race on Friday.

The fun-spirited match, coached by the competitive couple, was held at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand on Sunday. The two enthusiastic teams of youngsters featured children who won through to the final of a day-long tag rugby tournament for five to seven-year-olds.
Context Liverpool entered the match leading the Premier League, two points ahead of Chelsea and four points up on Manchester City but City having played two games fewer. Liverpool has never won the Premier League since its formation in 1992 and their last title win came in 1990. The game also marked the 25
th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, when 96 Liverpool supporters died while attending a FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest. The emotion of the occasion was undoubtedly a challenge for both teams, but particularly Liverpool.
