The Open third round - Live

posted Jul 21, 2007

Great round from Sergio! We need a European winner and he has been amazing today! Great chip from the rough at 17.

Oh...and best wishes to the lady and the cameraman who were on the receiving end of both TW and SG golf balls today.

It would be nice for garcia to get a first major after all that youthful promise - he has never done better thanh 3rd ina major - 5th last two years in the Open.

My fingers are crossed that he wins and not another Yank.

Fairplay, how can you say Tiger woods is getting the coverage because of the colour of his skin.
I think its more to do with the fact he's the best player in the last 10 years by a mile. Because of the modern game, with so much sponsorship involved, he is always going to get the most coverage.
By your reasoning Choi would also get top coverage,after all, he has yellow skin.

-2 should be enough for Sergio tomorrow. Cannot see Stricker shooting really low again.

Did Choi look yellow to you? He looked brown to me. Maybe the cloudy conditions!

Woods: "Bring me the head of Sergio Garcia!"

Have you noticed the Garcia squeezes (or milks) the club a certain number of times before his stroke? Does he have a superstition of counting numbers in his mind? Does the club need to released at the count of certain number like 6, for example, and if he misses releasing at 6, he has to count to a multiple of six....12?

8 non Major winners in the first 9 places on the leaderboard.

2007 is becoming the year for first time Major winners.

Tiger is having a year off.

Once again I was appalled at the lack of shout to the poor chap hit by Garcia's ball on 17 - what is wrong with these people?

Garcia to blow it - Big Ernie to win by 1 shot.

I apprecaite your comments but I want to watch the best players on the day not someone spraying it about. Let's face it very few of the shots are actually live so come on BBC it's not the Tiger show.

Stricker needs only a par-round to win the jug if Garcia scores a 75. I doubt that Els and others six strokes behind stand a good chance.

I would love to see Sergio win his first major, he is a great player and was brilliant in the ryder cup.
That said it if far from over.Bring it on.

I would'nt count tiger out yet if he gets within 3-4 shots he is a very intimidating figure

Has Tiger ever won a tournament when trailing by 8 shots on the final day? In majors, he never won when trailing by even one shot.

Morning all, it's alright, Sam, you're not the only man up this early on a grey, grey Sunday, England's Jon Bevan has already started his assault on the leaderboard.

He qualified for the Open from the same local qualifying tournament that Paul Lawrie emerged from eight years ago....but he's going to have to go some to replicate Lawrie's last-day charge. Not that the Weymouth-based pro should be too disappointed with his display here. He came dead last at Hoylake last year so while he is bringing up the rear again this weekend at least he is looking at a 9,500 cheque.

The big chat in town last night concerned Sergio's last-day wardrobe. Would he go for the Spanish-themed colour scheme of Saturday, Real Madrid white or shamelessly play to the galleries in blue and white with tartan tam o' shanter and ginger fright wig? Any of those would be preferable to last year's "I'm a lemon" ensemble. And others wondered how many spectators the players could knock over today.

The smaller chat was that Sergio really should win this now, shouldn't he? After all, the reasoning went, he's got a six-shot lead over his nearest genuine challengers. Hmmm, Steve Stricker might sound like a cartoon character but he has been knocking on the door for a win as loudly as anybody else in the States this year - four top-fives already this year to follow his seven top-10s last year.

The real key will be what happens if somebody can get something going early on and get within a couple of Sergio by the time he starts...then we'll see if he has the stomach for the fight with his new belly putter.

Jean Van de Velde did not play this year at Carnoustie yet I've seen about as much of him as I have of the 'in-your-face' Tiger Woods. Poor Jean, had he rights to the film of his 1999 meltdown he would be an extremely wealthy, and happy, little Frenchman.

Year of the Argentinians? I am guessing it will be Romero. If he falters, I am backing Harrington. Sergio is fast fading.

Now, we are sure to have a European winning the Open. Harrington or Garcia. That's the only question.
