The third round of the 2019 Masters at Augusta National in Georgia are fully underway. Most of the field has already teed off, with the leaders set to get underway after 2 p.m. E.T.

Dustin Johnson is among those leaders. The 34-year-old star golfer is teeing off at 2:25 p.m. E.T. He's -6 through two rounds, one back of the leaders at -7.

The South Carolina native is a one-time major champion. He won the U.S. Open in 2016. His best finish at The Masters came in 2016 when he finished tied for fourth place.

Johnson's fiancee, Paulina Gretzky, is enjoying the weekend.

Gretzky posted the following photo on Instagram:

CBS Sports summed up how good of a chance Johnson has this weekend:

There are numerous ways to measure how close somebody is to winning a golf tournament, but by pretty much all of them, this is D.J.'s best opportunity to win a green jacket. He's obviously had great rounds here -- seven of them in the 60s in his career -- but never has he put himself in a spot where a strong D.J.-like weekend could mean lapping the leaders as is the case this weekend. His career here has been curious. On a course that he can often play to a par of 68 or 69 because of his length, he's only ever shot two rounds in the 60s one time (in 2015) during the same tournament.

His best score after 36 holes was 137, but that was also in 2015 and he was 200 strokes back of leader Jordan Spieth (approximately). In 2016, he was just four back at the midway mark, but he had 13 golfers either tied with him or in front of him. This year, he was one back of the clubhouse lead at the time he finished after a two-day score of 138. He'll have a late afternoon tee time Saturday on a course can flex on. And he'll have a lot at stake.

The third round of The Masters will be televised on CBS. TV coverage begins at 2 p.m. E.T.
