Event of the day

Our event of the day...

is the final round of the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. Saturday saw a high scoring day on the course with South African Brendan Grace recording a 62 to break the long-standing men's major championship record for a round. The scoring average for the field on the day was a very low 69.03. Scoring is expected to be tougher today for the final round.

Jordan Spieth holds a commanding 3 short lead sitting on 11 under for the tournament, Matt Kuchar lies in second on 8 under and in a tie for third Brooks Koepka and Canadian Austin Connelly are on 5 under. Can anybody catch Spieth? Tune in tomorrow to catch an exciting finish to the Open and see the lifting of the Claret Jug.
