British Open Championship: Day Three Round-Up

Darren Clarke takes a one-shot lead into the final round of the Open at Royal St George’s on Sunday.

The 42-year-old survived a morning weather onslaught to shoot a one-under 69 to edge to five under on a tough day’s golf.

Dustin Johnson lies second having shared best round of the day, 68, with compatriot Rickie Fowler.

Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez slipped to a two-over 72 to end one under alongside joint overnight leader Lucas Glover (73) of America.

World number six Phil Mickelson headlined a group at level par comprising fellow American Anthony Kim (70), US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love (72), Germany’s world number three Martin Kaymer, Dane Anders Hansen (72) and South African George Coetzee (72).

US Open champion Rory McIlroy struggled to a round of 74, which included a double-bogey seven after going out of bounds at the 14th, to end on four over.

Just three players negotiated Royal St George’s under par on Saturday and only six are under par for the tournament going into the final round.
