British Open 2017 weather forecast: Final round weather, could it rain?

The last time a Georgia Tech golfer won The Open was the legendary Bobby Jones in 1930.

Kuchar looked in complete control of his round and was just one shot behind Spieth standing on the 16th tee, but unfortunately for Kuchar, he made a disgusting double bogey six and Spieth extended his lead to three shots by the end of the third round. And he's clearly not spooked by the big stage at Royal Birkdale. Pettersen and Norris shook hands and put their arms around each other's shoulders as they walked the 18th fairway, and the 38-year-old Pettersen tapped in for bogey for what he thought was a round of 5 over.

Spieth said: "Matt keeps things light. I promise you", Grace told reporters. "And it will be a matter of time". Connelly, who plays under the Canadian flag, was six shots behind at 5-under 205, tied with U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who had a 68.

Koepka also struggled to find birdies for the Round 2.

"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey but when I knocked in the two-footer or three-footer (for par) Zack came up and said "You're in the history books" and I was like 'What are you talking about?'" - Grace reveals it was his caddie who pointed out the significance of his round. I've had the heights", said the 2015 Masters and US Open champion, "and I've had the humblings. "My goal had been to score a 66 today and I bettered that by one shot".

Sean Zak: All day Saturday I watched, hemming and hawing about whether it was a story of "Jordan is flat-out not screwing up" or "Well, Kuch is just waiting for him to screw up". "It was really nice to capitalise on it", he said. Finishing in the top 15 gets back into the British Open next year. Can Kuchar play his best round of golf in his life to win the Claret Jug in upset fashion?

Sure, it's nice to be a multiple victor again for a young player who already has collected 10 PGA Tour titles at age 23, joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods in getting there before 24 (which he'll turn July 27). "And I'll be feeling it this weekend a bit", he said. "That would scare a lot of people off".

Weather conditions were far more favorable Saturday than the opening two days, and only two players inside the top 40 failed to break par. None of his family were in the house but he lost some valuables and all his clothes. His third round was a faultless 65.

Net Neutrality 'Day of Action' Fizzles into Big Yawn
Vimeo released their own video on Wednesday, explaining the basics of net neutrality and how to fight to ensure it remains intact. If we don't win this particular battle, legal action could potentially derail Pai's plans before they officially take effect.

"I've always been good when I get off to fast starts being able to keep it going, and I didn't today".

A hooked tee shot and a duffed chip from thick rough led to a bogey on the par-3 seventh hole.

He also liked that British golf fans remember what he did a year ago. I've been in some good form.

Pettersen, a club professional of 15 years at Birkdale, got a call at around 9.50 p.m. local time on Friday that he'd be the marker in the first group of the third round, alongside Shaun Norris of South Africa.

On the most favorable day for major scoring in recent memory, a day that saw a record 62, Jordan Spieth saw the onrushing horde of would-be challengers for the Open Championship and merely threw down a bogey-free 65, capped with an 18th-hole birdie, that left no doubt about who's in charge this week. All of the responses were brief, and two were interspersed with curse words. "Disappointed with my performance today". The Superbook is giving Kuchar the second best odds to win at 5/1, after he shot a four-under 66 on Saturday.

FAMILIAR FACE, DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERE: Chan Kim knew he had come a long way when he played the third round of the British Open with Ernie Els. He led by four at the Masters two years ago and won by that margin.

"I'll be playing with Jordan again, but I won't be focused on him".
