Brandt Snedeker: Best finish so far at Augusta was a share of third back in 2008

Angel Cabrera and Brandt Snedeker are both hoping their previous experiences at Augusta will help them secure the Green Jacket on Sunday.

The duo share the lead at seven under par going into the final round at the Masters after both signed for three-under scores of 69, leaving them one shot clear of Australian Adam Scott.

"I'm not here to get a good finish. I'm not here to finish top five. I'm here to win and that's all I'm going to be focused on tomorrow."

Snedeker was also a serious contender at the tournament back in 2008 but eventually ended up in a share for third place, with Trevor Immelman taking home the title that year.

"I had no clue what I was doing in 2008. I had no game plan, no idea of when to be aggressive, when not to be aggressive, how to play this golf course the way you're supposed to play it," he said after his bogey-free round.

"I have a completely clear focus of what I need to do tomorrow, clear set of goals that I need to hit. If I do that, I have a chance to win this golf tournament.

"I'm not here to get a good finish. I'm not here to finish top five. I'm here to win and that's all I'm going to be focused on tomorrow."

Former champion

Cabrera, meanwhile, knows what it takes to win it all in Georgia. The Argentine was Masters champion in 2009 when he was part of the final group to go out on the course.

"That helps you to be more calm and have that experience," the former champion - who finished in a share for seventh in 2011 having gone out last alongside Rory McIlroy - said.

"It all adds up and helps. In 2009, I was nervous, anxious. But now I'm very comfortable. I know what I've got to do tomorrow to be able to get the win.

"I think it's important that you know where to miss (on this course). And when you've played so many times or many years this tournament, it really helps just the fact that you know where you can miss a shot."
