Good afternoon. Welcome to one of the best days in sport - the fourth

:01:03.:01:07.

and final round of the Open. This is the 140 of the Championship,

:01:07.:01:12.

being played in Kent, and that is the leader, coming into the final

:01:12.:01:16.

day - Darren Clarke has a one-shot Mac advantage as he makes his way

:01:16.:01:21.

to the clubhouse and begins preparations for his tee time at

:01:21.:01:25.

ten past two. In the mix to clean the Claret Jug, a fascinating,

:01:25.:01:31.

interesting combination of young blood and old heads. We will be

:01:31.:01:37.

here on BBC One and on BBC One HB, until seven o'clock, to seek who

:01:37.:01:40.

wins the Claret Jug this time though stop it has been a long time

:01:40.:01:44.

since Darren Clarke found himself in the final pairing of a Major,

:01:44.:01:50.

some 14 years, and he aims to claim a remarkable triple of Major titles

:01:50.:01:53.

for Northern Ireland after the successes of Graeme McDowell and

:01:53.:01:57.

Rory McIlroy in the past the team once. So much to look forward to,

:01:57.:02:07.
:02:07.:02:09.

but let's see who is playing in Lucas Glover joins Miguel Angel

:02:09.:02:15.

Jiminez on the tee at ten-two. Two o'clock is the call time for Thomas

:02:15.:02:20.

Bjorn and Rickie Fowler, Rickie Fowler aiming to been the youngest

:02:20.:02:26.

Open champion since Seve Ballesteros in 1979. He, too, was

:02:26.:02:32.

22, then. Then it is Dustin Johnson and Darren Clarke - 14 years since

:02:32.:02:35.

Darren Clarke was in the final pairing in a Major. This is the

:02:35.:02:41.

situation as we head into the last day. No one making an impression

:02:41.:02:48.

yet. Conditions making things difficult with the wind gusting.

:02:48.:02:52.

One or two golf balls or so leading on the greens. That is potentially

:02:52.:02:57.

problematic. Let us hope that the wind has not get up too much and

:02:57.:03:02.

that there is a poor pass for everyone today. One of the men who

:03:02.:03:08.

has been going well so far, Sergio Garcia, 2-under after four, out in

:03:08.:03:15.

the company or Rory McIlroy, but still some seven shots back. Just

:03:15.:03:21.

to remind you, BBC One, and BBC H D, as we go through to the conclusion

:03:21.:03:27.

of this Championship. Rory McIlroy, it would appear that is jammed --

:03:27.:03:30.

challenge of winning the Claret Jug might be at an end, because he has

:03:30.:03:36.

not made the greatest of starts, 1- over after four. 5-over for the

:03:36.:03:41.

Championship, but think of Paul Lawrie ensures back in 1991. You

:03:41.:03:45.

would not have believed he would be the winner of the Open Championship

:03:45.:03:51.

then. So much drama and excitement to look of what do. And there is

:03:51.:03:56.

Darren Clarke, proudly on top of the leaderboard, will he be there

:03:56.:04:00.

innocuous time? We have been watching golf on BBC Two. Dr

:04:00.:04:04.

getting straight back out there and the company of Andrew Cotter and

:04:04.:04:14.
:04:14.:04:28.

Yesterday he said he putted well but he's still left a couple out

:04:28.:04:38.
:04:38.:04:38.

there. McIlroy with his second shot to five. I think for Rory McIlroy,

:04:38.:04:41.

all the expiation -- all the expectation was on them this week

:04:41.:04:46.

but he has come to the realisation that he is not going to be the Open

:04:46.:04:52.

champion of 2011. You can see it in his body language. He is slightly

:04:52.:04:55.

depleted. This is the first time he has played since his US Open

:04:55.:05:04.

victory. I think he might be more comfortable, once he gets on to the

:05:04.:05:09.

US PGA in Atlanta or. This week came a little bit too early, and

:05:09.:05:16.

perhaps a little bit too much pressure upon him. Not really has

:05:16.:05:21.

conditions. Others can perhaps cope with it slightly better a bus-stop

:05:21.:05:30.

Sergio Garcia playing alongside, for example, a marvellous shot! Oh,

:05:30.:05:40.
:05:40.:05:41.

dear. So, Garcia, a bright start he has made, compared to McIlroy.

:05:41.:05:48.

Second birdie on the fourth. A birdie coming on five. We talked

:05:48.:05:53.

about someone who could make a move from far back. Difficult today, but

:05:53.:06:00.

this will be the third birdie for Sergio Garcia. There is the leader,

:06:00.:06:04.

Darren Clarke up chubby Chandler, former player and now it manager,

:06:04.:06:10.

giving him some putting advice. Lewis Martin has more deer on the

:06:10.:06:17.

side there. He's using one of the stretch sticks that is becoming

:06:17.:06:21.

popular with the players. We will see Darren going through some

:06:21.:06:26.

stretching routines with that later. This is something Phil Mickelson

:06:26.:06:31.

used to do, practice putting first, then go to the range, rather than

:06:31.:06:35.

the more conventional way. He might be back here on the green after he

:06:35.:06:40.

has hit a few shots those top we can go back down to the practice

:06:40.:06:48.

ground where Davis Love is talking Lots of people in the reckoning

:06:48.:06:53.

here. Yes, you never know with golf, you never know with the weather. We

:06:54.:06:57.

might get more rain today so you just have to go out there and

:06:57.:07:03.

survive. See what happens. Do you have a number in mind given that

:07:03.:07:07.

Darren Clarke has something of a lead? The best thing is not to look

:07:07.:07:11.

at the leaderboard and just shoot as well as you can. I don't know if

:07:11.:07:15.

that is possible. Just go out and play golf and enjoy the Open

:07:15.:07:25.
:07:25.:07:42.

Championship and if things work out, eight green. -- eighth. Tom Lewis,

:07:42.:07:48.

good for distance. Flying along, an eagle -- an eagle on seventh,

:07:48.:07:53.

taking him back to 3-over. Was he wearing open-toed sandals

:07:53.:08:01.

yesterday? Yes, he has been winning them for a long, long time. Hard to

:08:01.:08:07.

change old habits. At some point we have to start to consider

:08:07.:08:17.
:08:17.:08:18.

:09:12.:09:16.

Bubba Watson, down the hill, it should break a touch from left to

celebrating winning the French Open by jumping into the lake beside the

:10:57.:11:03.

18th green, I am sorry that you are not here, everyone misses you. That

:11:03.:11:13.
:11:13.:11:18.

is a good drive there from Raphael Jaquelin. A brief shower. Simon

:11:28.:11:32.

Dyson remains me off -- of the Energiser bunny. Has some very fast

:11:32.:11:36.

mannerisms and gets excited. Yes, he is good to watch, just a pace

:11:36.:11:42.

that he plays up. He probably has to work on slowing himself down,

:11:42.:11:47.

and keeping an even pace, and walking off the first tee, take

:11:47.:11:53.

long, slow strides and swing the arms, purposefully. Just to try and

:11:53.:11:59.

slow everything down. There is Charl Schwartzel, second, to the

:11:59.:12:09.
:12:09.:12:19.

that, for his par, good birdie at the first. I don't know if they

:12:19.:12:24.

have just got the umbrellas up just to keep the wind off but they are

:12:24.:12:34.
:12:34.:12:35.

shivering out there. Palmer into the wind, good recovery! -- Turn it

:13:16.:13:26.
:13:26.:13:28.

for par, on it. -- eight. I thought that was the longest tee shot of

:13:28.:13:37.

the day, but that was for par. That was when this is caused when pulled

:13:37.:13:43.

his driver out and put it on the table. Let me just check on Peter

:13:43.:13:50.

Uihlein. Take over at the moment. It would be fitting if Tom Lewis

:13:50.:13:56.

was to win that silver medal. Back to Sergio Garcia on the sixth hole.

:14:06.:14:32.

into the breeze, left to right, to hold it up into the breeze, but he

just overdid it. You can see the plane flattering there on the right

birdie, one bogey -- McIlroy. have been very much entertained by

:15:24.:15:30.

the antics and the golf of Miguel Angel Jimenez this week. Let's hear

:15:30.:15:33.

from him now. Have you been for a run this

:15:33.:15:39.

morning to get ready for today? course. I have been to run along

:15:39.:15:48.

the sea coast, beautiful. It would be very, very special with so many

:15:48.:15:52.

pictures of Seve Ballesteros for you to win today. That would be

:15:52.:16:02.
:16:02.:16:06.

great, you know. Whatever is coming is coming. That is it, you know.

:16:06.:16:11.

wish you the very best. ANDREW COTTER: his attitude stands

:16:11.:16:21.
:16:21.:16:37.

him in good stead for the final day South Africans with a beautiful

:16:37.:16:47.
:16:47.:16:50.

same order, isn't it? Routines normally are, and he does it all

:16:50.:17:00.
:17:00.:17:08.

soon. He looks like a sumo wrestler when he goes down on his haunches.

:17:08.:17:18.
:17:18.:17:18.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:17:18.:18:09.

round the six as ever, a natural beat next week, although you have

:18:09.:18:19.
:18:19.:18:19.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:18:19.:20:22.

watching, that is what you need to describes these as the most

:20:22.:20:32.
:20:32.:20:32.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:20:32.:21:28.

difficult greens on the Open the right side there. A great tee

:21:28.:21:38.
:21:38.:21:57.

Playing to the galleries. The Jimenez shuffle. This is the

:21:57.:22:02.

interesting one. If you can do all of the other stuff, just bend down

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:51.

whether it has gone into one of the bunkers. At least it is the Open so

:22:51.:22:54.

there are a lot of people around and do have a chance of finding it.

:22:54.:22:57.

Imagine doing that playing on your own, you would be walking around

:22:57.:23:07.
:23:07.:23:33.

who does not wear a hat or cap. Never used to wear a glove either

:23:33.:23:39.

but suddenly took to it. I didn't wear a glove until I won my first

:23:39.:23:42.

tournament, then they started giving them to me. And you thought,

:23:42.:23:52.
:23:52.:24:26.

why not? I could not afford them crowds than St George's. I know a

:24:26.:24:36.
:24:36.:24:49.

lot of them have had a hard time Open after more than 15 attempts.

:24:49.:24:53.

This is Darren Clarke's 20th tilt at the Claret Jug. Can perseverance

:24:53.:24:58.

paid? Good things come to those who wait, as they say in parts of

:24:58.:25:03.

Ireland. Let's get a word with him on the practice range.

:25:03.:25:07.

There is the applause for you, a lot at stake today. Are you looking

:25:07.:25:12.

forward to the challenge? Yes, it will be a tough day with the wind,

:25:12.:25:17.

but it will be fun, I will do my best and see how we get on. If you

:25:17.:25:21.

strike the ball like yesterday it will give you a good opportunity.

:25:21.:25:26.

hope I do, I will hit the ball the same way as yesterday and hopefully

:25:26.:25:31.

give myself some chances. Well the key be to stay with it when you do

:25:31.:25:37.

not get a break here and there? his golf, you get some good breaks

:25:37.:25:41.

and bad breaks, on a links course it gets windy, so you have to

:25:41.:25:44.

accept it and move on and make the best of whatever position you are

:25:44.:25:54.
:25:54.:26:03.

in. We wish you the best. ANDREW COTTER: Wishing him well.

:26:04.:26:08.

Everybody, it seems, supporting Darren Clarke today. Mark James is

:26:08.:26:18.
:26:18.:26:29.

guys making birdies. Plenty of stellar groups yet to go out.

:26:29.:26:35.

you like that? He borrowed that from Ken Brown, I have seen it in

:26:35.:26:45.
:26:45.:26:51.

week, I think he is top 10 in greens in regulation so far this

:26:51.:27:01.
:27:01.:27:19.

an extreme bounce left, but not too bad there. Rory McIlroy is on the

:27:19.:27:29.
:27:29.:27:57.

would set him in the right could not quite make it out. Andrew

:27:57.:28:07.
:28:07.:28:25.

Cotter has headed off, Jim Nance is playing companion Sergio is on a

:28:25.:28:35.
:28:35.:29:11.

right now. Here is a chance to it high, get over that ridge.

:29:11.:29:21.
:29:21.:29:21.

Confidence mounting for Sergio Garcia. Got that putt just inside

:29:21.:29:25.

20 feet. 5-under for the round, into red figures for the

:29:25.:29:35.
:29:35.:30:14.

Championship. That would leapfrog programme. Mark Pougatch is talking

:30:14.:30:21.

You have played well despite having the worst of the weather all week.

:30:21.:30:25.

That must give you confidence going into this afternoon. Yes, I am in a

:30:26.:30:31.

good position coming into Sunday, so I am looking forward to enjoying

:30:31.:30:35.

a walk around St Georges and just to go out there and see what we can

:30:35.:30:40.

do. Can you enjoy it? There is a huge amount at stake, an Open

:30:40.:30:46.

Championship at the end of it. there is a lot of pressure and they

:30:46.:30:49.

have to make sure that I keep having fun out there and play

:30:49.:30:59.
:30:59.:31:05.

grandfather was Japanese and it was him that got him started in the

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:15.

game of golf. His middle name is Ukata. He has a great chance to put

:31:15.:31:18.

ounce on his first Major Championship if he can perform like

:31:18.:31:28.
:31:28.:31:40.

a round without changing position. If it was to change position after

:31:40.:31:44.

the put the putter down behind it, it is a one-shot penalty and he

:31:44.:31:49.

would have to replace the ball. He has grown the that, and it hasn't

:31:49.:31:59.

moved. Getting. -- get in. Sometimes you concentrate on the

:31:59.:32:09.
:32:09.:32:39.

line so much, you forget about the Garcia some idea about the line,

:32:39.:32:45.

but it came up so short, and not sure that it helped at all. Raphael

:32:45.:32:54.

Jaquelin, the Frenchman. Second shot onto the second green, he

:32:54.:32:59.

birdied the first, that, for another one. Crucial putt on the

:32:59.:33:09.
:33:09.:33:11.

way for Sergio Garcia. Climbing up the leaderboard for an eagle! Oh!

:33:11.:33:15.

Couldn't have been much closer. A tap-in birdie, his fourth of the

:33:15.:33:25.
:33:25.:33:27.

round. He wanted more. That was certainly a good enough strike.

:33:27.:33:35.

That putt could have gone. Had he seen a little bit more of the

:33:35.:33:45.
:33:45.:33:58.

He grounded his putter and the ball appeared to move. If he has

:33:58.:34:02.

grounded the putter and taking his stance and the ball has moved, it

:34:02.:34:06.

is a one-stroke penalty, then he needs to replace the ball where it

:34:06.:34:16.
:34:16.:34:24.

putter behind the ball, he has taken his stance. Moved about four

:34:24.:34:29.

or five inches. That is rotten luck. He is at that point where reality

:34:29.:34:35.

hits, and it is final, it is not your week. You're absolutely right.

:34:35.:34:41.

Sometimes it is not your week. At Congressional, it was his week.

:34:41.:34:45.

This week, he has not played that badly but brings just have not

:34:45.:34:55.

happen for him. You are putting for a five. And a one-shot penalty. He

:34:55.:34:59.

could expect nothing more than another lapse of concentration over

:34:59.:35:09.
:35:09.:35:15.

that want. That is a six for Championship, but of bounds at 14

:35:15.:35:20.

yesterday, unplayable at three today and that ball after moving it,

:35:20.:35:30.
:35:30.:35:38.

addressing and grounding the putter, done! -- in the hole. We have not

:35:38.:35:45.

seen much of him this week, but level for the round, plus four for

:35:45.:35:55.
:35:55.:36:08.

the Championship. It was a ever. He knew it, too. -- a weak

:36:08.:36:14.

effort. After a fine round yesterday. And he had to play in

:36:14.:36:24.
:36:24.:36:25.

some of the real significance staff. --significant stuff. All eyes on

:36:25.:36:30.

the 42-year-old from Dungannon. He's using the stretching Paul. We

:36:30.:36:34.

saw that in Lucas Glover's Bank Elliot in the week. These old

:36:34.:36:37.

fellows are still pretty supple and pretty mobile and still very much

:36:38.:36:46.

in this Championship. And the man who has been managing Darren Clarke

:36:46.:36:51.

is Andrew Chandler. He has been out there today. A real fondness for

:36:51.:36:55.

one of his oldest lies. And he is there again talking to Mark

:36:55.:37:03.

Pougatch. -- one of his oldest In an interview you give to a

:37:03.:37:07.

newspaper this week when pushed about which one of your stable you

:37:07.:37:10.

would like to win, you said it would be great if Darren Clarke won

:37:10.:37:16.

the Open. I knew that he sort of crude. There have been a couple of

:37:16.:37:21.

close. He said to me a few weeks ago, I want to play and prepare

:37:21.:37:24.

properly because I am not going to have many more chances, so he came

:37:24.:37:30.

here knowing that he had a good chance. The weather is helping him,

:37:30.:37:34.

and the draw is helping him. He's really relax. What have you said to

:37:34.:37:39.

him? Nothing much. We talked normally at breakfast. I will have

:37:39.:37:42.

a couple of things to say to him before he tees off but he knows

:37:42.:37:47.

what he is doing. You just reminding him of things, not giving

:37:47.:37:52.

him advice. Is it because he is in a better place? Everyone knows what

:37:52.:37:55.

has happened in his private life - is the reason he is playing better

:37:55.:38:01.

because he is a better place, mentally? He has come back into

:38:01.:38:05.

play, his fiancee is here, his mum and dad are you, the kids are

:38:05.:38:10.

watching on TV. But things are better for him. He had a long spell

:38:10.:38:17.

were things were not right. He gets weeks like this. He just suddenly

:38:17.:38:21.

will relax for a whole week. And he is the same this week. He has just

:38:21.:38:26.

got to stay with it when things do not go his way. A pervert there was

:38:26.:38:30.

an observation in the past is that he would get down with him self and

:38:30.:38:34.

lose it for three or four holes. People like you keep telling him

:38:34.:38:38.

that he has got to do it. He knows that it is going to be a battle.

:38:38.:38:43.

But yesterday, his ball striking was so good, if he can repeat that

:38:43.:38:53.
:38:53.:39:07.

he is going to have another good McIlroy. We thought he had made six

yielded a third birdie of the day. And he was a whisker away from

picking up two. That was for eagle at the long par five seventh,

Sergio Garcia is running up the leaderboard, 4-under for the round,

five shots off the lead, and in a tie for seventh place right now.

is always upbeat. He has had one top 10 finish in his career at the

Open, a third place finish. If somehow it was to fall his way at

proud that we fall into. We place so much pressure and expectation on

these young players. As soon as they start to show some signs of

good play, all of a sudden they are the next coming. But that is a

great tee shot from Anthony Kim. Another good two-ball is falling

great player. When you consider that Rory McIlroy has only one,

three times in his career. Ryan Palmer is down on the second. He

has gone left. Not a bad line into this Ben, back right, today. --

:07:00.:07:10.

:09:17.:09:22.

What has he got left? Phil Mickelson has got a pretty good lie

out of the left rough. Much more accessible flag for an opening hole

its worst, Phil Mickelson said that he challenged - relished the

:10:00.:10:07.

challenge of the tough conditions. And he did handle it quite well.

:10:07.:10:14.

Let's see if he is up for the challenge today. You saw the wind

direction there, behind, and from the right. It looks like he is

about to take off. As we head down the first, you can see the wind

direction coming over the shoulders of this left-hander. He has just

putting green, to first tee is Big Both men 1-under. Anthony Kim is

just ten yards closer than Phil Mickelson. 146. Just making its way

Clarke tees off, and then who can forget the ovation he got at the K

:12:49.:12:55.

well. A very smart, you have got to say that. Looking forward to the

:12:55.:12:59.

challenge of the links, I am sure. Ready to go. And the outright

:12:59.:13:05.

leader, Darren Clarke, getting his final instructions. The most

:13:05.:13:08.

important thing in his game, going out there with the right attitude.

:13:08.:13:12.

I spoke to him at the start of the week and he said he was playing

brilliantly on the putting green, all I need to do is keep my head on.

:13:17.:13:22.

Just getting the final instructions of how to take these elements on.

:13:22.:13:29.

So, what the final Gladiators get a good touch. I am sure that Darren

Clarke is going to get an ovation like we have never had before. Back

here years ago. Coming down, better and better, a three-putt bogey at

:13:52.:13:58.

the past, but a birdie coming his way. As Ken said, let your attitude

:13:58.:14:04.

determine your golf game, not the other way around. McIlroy, at ten,

:14:04.:14:14.

for par. We are all guilty, when we get on the golf course, of goes

:14:14.:14:22.

ahead, and on goes the pump. It is almost as difficult to putt, as it

this week, so he is right up there with the putting. He is the one

:14:41.:14:45.

that might determine -- the putter is the stick that might determine

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:15:13.

his outcome. On the tee, Lucas won't be a problem today. There is

hope the wind dies down. Secretly, all of these players don't want the

has led 15 times going into round four. He looks very much in control

:30:29.:30:39.
:30:39.:30:48.

goes into red figures. Thomas Bjorn, from light rough, out side of the

:30:48.:30:58.
:30:58.:30:58.

first hole, not easy to get close. It has filed away on him, I fancy.

:30:58.:31:05.

-- fired. Not quite as fiery as it might have been. I think he thought

:31:05.:31:10.

that might have been in the next parish. Maureen Madill is out there

:31:10.:31:15.

following this man. This is going to be very interesting. Rickie

:31:15.:31:19.

Fowler can engineers some shots, and this is one added and 31 yards,

:31:19.:31:29.
:31:29.:31:45.

and he is going down with a seven- You could see the force of the wind,

:31:45.:31:55.
:31:55.:32:10.

Jiminez, but the idea is still there. Here is a snippet of

:32:10.:32:20.

information - 100 years ago, Harry Vardon won the Championship, and

:32:20.:32:30.
:32:30.:32:34.

the runner-up was Arnaud Masset the Frenchman. One written -- 100 years

:32:34.:32:44.
:32:44.:32:51.

ago to this very day. That was quite well played by Peter Uihlein.

:32:51.:32:58.

The thought hole for full Mickelson. -- the third hole. Have you noticed

:32:58.:33:08.
:33:08.:33:09.

that he favours pin stripes? It's that is not enough. Not quite

:33:09.:33:18.

enough. That information about Harry Vardon came from Tommy Walton,

:33:18.:33:28.
:33:28.:33:29.

Jersey Tom. Did he play with him that you? I don't think so. Sorry,

:33:29.:33:39.
:33:39.:33:42.

Tom! Anthony Kim with a 4-iron, 220 out. We have seen Phil Mickelson's

:33:42.:33:52.
:33:52.:33:52.

ball get caught by the wind, with that tug to the left. The crowd are

:33:52.:34:02.
:34:02.:34:27.

applauding, we do not see it, it is becoming almost as famous as the

:34:27.:34:37.
:34:37.:34:38.

players -- Ivor Robson. He and his wife used to run the best hotel in

:34:38.:34:47.

Moffett, years ago. Take it away, Ivor. Ladies and gentlemen, this is

:34:47.:34:53.

the final game of the 140 Open Championship. From the USA, Dustin

:34:53.:35:03.
:35:03.:35:15.

first three rounds, averaging 334 yards. Interesting swing and follow

:35:15.:35:25.
:35:25.:35:29.

through. That is over than. Could be all right. -- over them. On the

:35:29.:35:39.
:35:39.:35:49.

tee, from Northern Ireland, Darren 69, another one would do the trick,

:35:49.:35:59.
:35:59.:36:09.

time again. That is in the thick stuff. Two slightly nervous opening

:36:09.:36:19.
:36:19.:36:23.

gambits, I fancy. It Dustin Johnson's simply had told the crowd.

:36:23.:36:32.

-- hurdled. An enthusiastic crowd, urging Darren Clarke on. It is nice

:36:32.:36:39.

to have good support as long as the mad do not get carried away. -- as

:36:39.:36:49.
:36:49.:37:27.

long as they do not get carried first. He doesn't hang about, this

:37:27.:37:37.
:37:37.:38:11.

important on the first green. Just Edward Bryce is a past captain of

:38:11.:38:20.

Royal St George's. He is Miguel Angel Jiminez at the second. --

:38:21.:38:30.
:38:31.:38:36.

here is. And that skips up nicely left. I think they are tangled up

:38:36.:38:42.

with that fencing. What happens there, Ian? If the ball was on the

:38:42.:38:48.

outside left of the fencing within four club lengths the player is

:38:48.:38:53.

entitled to a free drop on the inside of the fencing or he can

:38:53.:39:01.

play the ball, as it lies. If defence into a fears, he can take

:39:02.:39:11.
:39:12.:39:23.

out free drop, from there. -- into open -- draw this at the side of

:39:23.:39:30.

defence. He's obviously within two club lengths and he has got a fair

:39:30.:39:40.
:39:40.:39:47.

enough lie - he is not a million the stroke he dropped at the first.

:39:47.:39:57.
:39:57.:39:58.

This would be a good one to hit back with immediately. Good three.

:39:58.:40:08.
:40:08.:40:39.

Sliding by. A big bite. -- eight. He is four ahead of Peter Uihlein,

:40:39.:40:49.
:40:49.:40:51.

who only has one to play. Four-shot lead. Darren Clarke has left

:40:51.:41:01.
:41:01.:41:03.

himself 155 yards, strong wind from the right side. This is what height.

:41:03.:41:10.

-- with height. That is a good result from there. Good distance

:41:10.:41:16.

from the flag, but a not very good opening tee shot. But the pain will

:41:16.:41:26.
:41:26.:41:30.

go away. Up he has a good big job on his hands today. Excel II.

:41:30.:41:37.

Wonder what you -- what they about they're doing. Are you an expert on

:41:37.:41:45.

boats, Peter? Not quite sure about that. This is his third shot. It

:41:45.:41:52.

looks OK for a birdie. It's going to get some showers this afternoon,

:41:52.:42:01.

that is the forecast. The Dustin Johnson to go draw on the side of

:42:01.:42:11.
:42:11.:42:16.

defence -- took a drop. This is for Tom Watson's birdie, at ten. Couple

:42:16.:42:26.
:42:26.:42:27.

over for the Jo, so far, good line, but no pace. -- for the day.

do. It is a monstrous par three. -- today. He is hitting back into the

:43:04.:43:12.

wind and he only has got a wedge, and we see the wind speed there, 33

:43:12.:43:21.

miles an hour. That was a wonderful shot. Very well played. From the

:43:21.:43:31.
:43:31.:43:31.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:43:31.:44:16.

Coming round a little bit and club. That is well short. You can

:44:16.:44:26.
:44:26.:44:27.

hear the wind and the cameras. -- on the cameras. Rickie Fowler, at

:44:27.:44:34.

the second. Just keeping to the right side of the flag. He managed

:44:34.:44:43.

to get some bite on that. Trying its hardest to get back, not bad. I

:44:43.:44:53.
:44:53.:44:54.

thought he had fired that right over the green. Simon Dyson, now.

:44:54.:45:00.

Seventh hole, a couple over today. That was a good bounce. Go on,

:45:00.:45:10.
:45:10.:45:10.

hustle, come on, Ben round! That was a magical result. Never

:45:10.:45:18.

complain until the ball stopped rolling! And Darren Clarke has a

:45:18.:45:25.

monstrously long putt, here. This is not the kind of putt you want on

:45:25.:45:30.

that first hole. There is a nasty ridge 20 feet short of the hole,

:45:30.:45:34.

have to gawp over it, then down the other side, it is very fast, so it

:45:34.:45:39.

is difficult to get the right pace on that. Once it goes down the

:45:39.:45:44.

other side, it is a little left to right. And when it was left to

:45:44.:45:47.

right it will be going almost straight downwind, and that will

:45:47.:45:57.
:45:57.:46:36.

he could knock that one in. -- what Rickie Fowler. He played absolutely

brilliantly yesterday. Dyson at the 7th for an eagle after that

:46:53.:47:18.

the pressure on Darren Clarke. very nervous one there. He has a

:47:18.:47:21.

reputation for being a very good putter. Obviously thought by the

:47:21.:47:31.
:47:31.:48:05.

wind or the slope or something. -- conditions this week and I know we

:48:06.:48:10.

do not have rain right now, but I don't think the wind has been any

:48:10.:48:20.
:48:20.:48:43.

stronger than it is at this present that was really travelling, too.

:48:43.:48:53.
:48:53.:48:54.

That really is a settler. That was a great putt. That will make Darren

right hand side, our friends from ESPN, ABC, the BBC equipment, all

:50:50.:51:03.

there to show you this picture, on the course. Second shot, trying

:51:03.:51:06.

to draw it to the right, and has made a pretty good job of that.

:51:06.:51:12.

What a wonderful shot. He deserved a bit better, beautifully played.

:51:22.:51:59.

Mickelson showing he has got all of shot yesterday, the final pair,

:51:59.:52:04.

Darren Clarke was one of them. A different partner yesterday, but I

:52:04.:52:14.
:52:14.:52:22.

hope they will not be held up too tournament on a three, but he

:52:22.:52:30.

hasn't. A big weight to see what club Dustin Johnson would hit off

:52:40.:53:20.

there, but he is down, he his round, be a problem for Darren Clarke. I

:53:20.:53:30.
:53:30.:53:53.

think the ground is a bit softer needs the best 4-iron he has ever

:53:53.:54:03.
:54:03.:54:10.

hit in his life. Dragged it away down there. Three-quarter 3-iron I

:54:10.:54:20.
:54:20.:54:48.

fancy with this shot today. Rickie had a pretty good week but may not

:54:48.:54:58.

get the medal. A round of 75 today, a total of 292. Great clouds

:54:58.:55:03.

sweeping across the course. We have a huge amount of people today,

:55:03.:55:07.

massive car traffic coming in. Many of you will know that Alex Hay

very good, this fella. I am a bit mixed on this final day. I would

:59:14.:59:19.

love to see Darren Clarke win, I would love to see Thomas Bjorn win.

I would love to see Rickie Fowler for another young brigade. So many

Dyson. -- birdie on 8. Two-over-par, 1-under for his round. And this is

another story here, Dustin Johnson. He was in the lead, had a chance to

Lucas Glover who won the US Open in 2009, trying to win a second

quite well. A couple under-par. Two in front. Johnson with a typically

:02:34.:02:46.

a few of those through the day, aren't you? And with the wind

:02:46.:02:54.

blowing so hard, you have to be very careful, even on those little

:02:54.:03:04.
:03:04.:03:05.

tap-ins. HAZEL IRVINE: That birdie has taken

:03:05.:03:12.

Darren Clarke two shots clear of Dustin Johnson. Chad Campbell is

:03:12.:03:22.

making progress, 2-under for his round. Anthony Kim is going well,

:03:22.:03:30.

but a dropped shot at the 4th means he is level. Simon Dyson is the top

:03:40.:03:50.

place Englishman. He is 1-under after that lovely birdie, eagle run.

:03:50.:03:55.

Anders Hansen is 3-over today. A disappointing run from him. He had

:03:55.:03:59.

been hoping to join Thomas Bjorn at the top of the leaderboard. At the

:03:59.:04:03.

moment, it is Darren Clarke making the running. He is the man they are

up from problems -- I had a few they are contemplating changing. I

ALLISS: He needs a big one to reach They are all a club short. The

:05:24.:05:33.

danger is going too far. He has left himself a long putt. The wind

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:46.

is coming right across. I think today we're going to see some of

:05:46.:05:52.

this immense power that Dustin Johnson has. Incredible potential.

:05:52.:06:02.
:06:02.:06:16.

This guy has as much potential as more difficult the shot becomes.

:06:16.:06:22.

Dustin Johnson is probably the best athlete in the field. He has

:06:22.:06:32.
:06:32.:06:33.

consistent ball speed of over 200 mph at all the testing centres.

:06:34.:06:40.

Magnificently judged. 9.5 out of 10. He has trimmed his beard, hasn't

he? I think it suits him. Johnson. He has to use a sand wedge and

pitch it over the fringe. Another tricky one for him. He has had
