2009 British Open - Round 3

Only seven players remain under par after the third round of the British Open Championship. After another strong finish, the old master Tom Watson still leads the young guns. The five time former champion is one shot clear of the field at four under par after again finishing with two birdies in his last three holes. On another breezy day in western Scotland, some notable players became croppers. Chief among them were the two time defending champion Padraig Harrington whose recent woes continued. Harrington birdied the first but it was all downhill from there and he ended up with a 76 for a +9 total. Joint second round leader Steve Marino also struggled to a 76 after a topsy turvy round. The field remains bunched with 26 players within six shots of the lead. It should make for an interesting final day's play!
