This is what they are playing for on the final day of the Ricoh British

:00:28.:00:33.

women's Championship at Woburn. We have been coming to this club since

:00:34.:00:39.

1984 for the Championship, on and off. But it is the first time it has

:00:40.:00:44.

returned as one of the five Majors in the women's game. It is a big

:00:45.:00:52.

deal here. It has a happy habit of producing famous champions. Seve

:00:53.:00:55.

Ballesteros, Dame Laura Davies, Lee Trevino and Sir Nick Faldo. And this

:00:56.:01:03.

lady, 26 years ago and she hasn't changed a bit. There she is, one of

:01:04.:01:15.

the nine previous Woburn winners. Seven time major winner, Karrie

:01:16.:01:21.

Webb. Bidding to become the tenth Woburn winner of its Catriona

:01:22.:01:35.

Matthew. At 46 she became the oldest champion in history. Mo Martin would

:01:36.:01:39.

love to hold the trophy again after her stunning run at Royal Birkdale

:01:40.:01:48.

two years ago. But today could also be a major breakthrough for Mirim

:01:49.:01:56.

Lee, aiming to follow compatriots as the 50 winner from South Korea. Or

:01:57.:02:11.

will it be Thailand's date and that of Ariya Jutanugarn. I know how to

:02:12.:02:21.

play under pressure. I know what is and isn't under my control. Yes,

:02:22.:02:33.

Jutanugarn slept on that lead after that beautiful 66 yesterday. Mirim

:02:34.:02:43.

Lee, could be a major winner in waiting as well. Mo Martin just

:02:44.:02:49.

behind, Catriona Matthew, left herself with something to do. Heady

:02:50.:02:55.

times for Leona Maguire. 26 years ago, it was Helen's day in

:02:56.:03:13.

the sun at Woburn. Who's do you think it will be today? I think it

:03:14.:03:24.

will be Jutanugarn or Mirim Lee. I have been very impressed with Ariya

:03:25.:03:35.

Jutanugarn. Armed with this two lion in the bag, which she has hit so

:03:36.:03:40.

beautifully from the tee, let's reflect on the power and position

:03:41.:03:44.

she has managed. She has faltered in a major Championship earlier in the

:03:45.:03:49.

season, what gives you confidence it won't happen today? First of all,

:03:50.:03:55.

they are so young and in it for the first time. The motion, the body

:03:56.:04:00.

reacts completely different. Sometimes you don't even recognise

:04:01.:04:04.

this body you are in and how your thoughts go. They are not equipped

:04:05.:04:09.

to understand it. She went on to win three in a row. Obviously learned

:04:10.:04:15.

some things, trying to stay relaxed, thinking about what is in your

:04:16.:04:22.

control. Three in a row as you say in regular Tour events, and the

:04:23.:04:25.

relaxation was in evidence yesterday. She has put a smile in as

:04:26.:04:32.

part of her pre-shot routine. Not a care in the world, Ariya Jutanugarn.

:04:33.:04:42.

It is so important. It was the iron play, she said it wasn't as crisp as

:04:43.:04:46.

she would like, but how impressed were you? I don't know how to say

:04:47.:04:52.

it, just the way she hits it. The interview, she said she wasn't happy

:04:53.:04:59.

with it, I thought it was excellent. Not a lot of things look like it is

:05:00.:05:05.

wrong, her putting has a very strong stroke. Gets to the hole, which we

:05:06.:05:12.

saw a lot of players not do. It is her to lose it rather than anyone

:05:13.:05:19.

gain it. She looks solid. This is at the 8th, in she goes. With this kind

:05:20.:05:24.

of power play, M the Championship record of 19-under par be in danger?

:05:25.:05:30.

I think so, the course is playing so nicely. Not a breath of wind and the

:05:31.:05:37.

greens are so receptive. The pins aren't very difficult. Maybe the

:05:38.:05:41.

last few holes could be a determining factor. With her, not

:05:42.:05:50.

having a lot of par fives out here, she has the chance of three or four

:05:51.:05:55.

birdies. Let's look at who is out with whom. We have got 15 players

:05:56.:06:02.

within ten shots of Jutanugarn's lead. Brilliant playing from the

:06:03.:06:13.

Irish amateur, Leona Maguire. She is out with Shanshan Feng. Karrie Webb

:06:14.:06:21.

is still in the picture, 21 years after winning her first event at

:06:22.:06:29.

Woburn. It is a major, all-American affair with Lexi Thompson and Stacy

:06:30.:06:35.

Lewis. Catriona Matthew and Mo Martin underway at two o'clock. Will

:06:36.:06:41.

the champion come from this final pairing? Will it be Mirim Lee or

:06:42.:06:46.

Ariya Jutanugarn. Ken Brown will be watching their every move. He was

:06:47.:06:56.

out early on with the man who designed this Marquis course many

:06:57.:07:03.

years Peter Alice. These wonderful trees, all sorts of oak, beech and

:07:04.:07:08.

elm. I can see Clive Clarke now, blazing his way through with a

:07:09.:07:14.

machete in his hand. Clive Clarke did 90% of this course on his own. I

:07:15.:07:20.

trail behind saying a few romantic words occasionally. It is a bit

:07:21.:07:25.

magic out here this morning, Peter. This was one of the few parts of the

:07:26.:07:31.

property that were wet. Hence we have a stream and the marquis, bless

:07:32.:07:38.

him, he wanted a water feature. So we manage, much against the run of

:07:39.:07:43.

play to carve this out. Depending on which TU play-off, it is one of the

:07:44.:07:50.

nicest holes on the cause. You have a big decision to make of the tee.

:07:51.:07:56.

They lay up in the middle. I don't want them to do it all the time

:07:57.:08:00.

because you get too many divots in the same place. Have a good day,

:08:01.:08:09.

ladies. Don't you want a cup of Coffey? No, we are not allowed. See

:08:10.:08:18.

how it goes through the woods. Beautiful, it really is. This is the

:08:19.:08:23.

last par-5. During the war, they dumped ammunition here. We had to

:08:24.:08:30.

call in the bomb disposal people. They virtually closed down the work

:08:31.:08:35.

meant for a couple of days. But we didn't blow anything up, but it was

:08:36.:08:41.

a worry getting rid of the bombs, added to the excitement. You see how

:08:42.:08:45.

wide the fairways are. This was meant to be enjoyed by the members

:08:46.:08:50.

and guests, it was never meant to be the most severe test in the world. I

:08:51.:08:55.

don't see the point in trying to create a course like that. Good

:08:56.:09:03.

hole, the 15th. This is a good little amphitheatre. Pass the

:09:04.:09:10.

studio. Thank you, it was a great adventure and we are on the 18th

:09:11.:09:18.

now? There is quite a big ripple and roll through this green. Don't be

:09:19.:09:24.

surprised if you see one, two or three putts today. You must be very

:09:25.:09:32.

proud. Very proud. You like this marquis course? It is absolutely

:09:33.:09:41.

stunning. Every hole has its character. Unfortunately I don't get

:09:42.:09:45.

to play it. I just hear good things from the girls about it. Helen, you

:09:46.:09:53.

would burn it up. Charley Hull, had it going 7-under until a double

:09:54.:09:58.

bogey at the 13th and then bogeys at the 14th and 16th. But the one

:09:59.:10:05.

running making progress is the former US Open champion, So Yeon

:10:06.:10:16.

Ryu. In this 40th anniversary of the Ricoh British women's open, let's

:10:17.:10:21.

enjoy the final day. Just about to get underway is Jutanugarn. Let's

:10:22.:10:29.

hand you over to our commentary team.

:10:30.:10:39.

The final round of the 2016 Ricoh women's open competition. Game

:10:40.:10:48.

number 38. On the tee, from career, Mirim Lee.

:10:49.:10:55.

COMMENTATOR: You have got to enjoy watching this girl play. She is very

:10:56.:11:00.

impressive. So many players here this week that really make the heart

:11:01.:11:10.

race a bit. Just watch this swing, very sturdy, compact and powerful.

:11:11.:11:19.

Great follow-through. May have pushed it a whisker. I think she has

:11:20.:11:28.

missed... From Thailand, Ariya Jutanugarn. COMMENTATOR: She is a

:11:29.:11:38.

crackerjack as well. A good battle in progress between these two. There

:11:39.:11:49.

is the smile. That is to kid herself she's not nervous. I'm going to

:11:50.:11:55.

enjoy this. That little trophy is coming my way. Maybe? Super. Just

:11:56.:12:16.

six inches wide. OK. You can tell why she was a little bit anxious,

:12:17.:12:22.

staring after that one. Close to the bunker but the 2-iron will get some

:12:23.:12:27.

work today. She does hit it a long way. Going to Mo Martin, up ahead on

:12:28.:12:36.

the green. Totally different player, Mo Martin. Not very long off the

:12:37.:12:42.

tee. Straight and true. A good thinker around the course. That is a

:12:43.:12:48.

wonderful judge of pace and line. I don't think she will make many

:12:49.:12:54.

mistakes. Not a flamboyant player, but if the ones who are more

:12:55.:12:58.

powerful make mistakes, you just nibble away. She is playing

:12:59.:13:06.

alongside Catriona Matthew. They have both opened with pars. On the

:13:07.:13:14.

final hole, Charley Hull. What a great round she did have going at

:13:15.:13:20.

one point. She was out in 31. Another couple of birdies, but

:13:21.:13:24.

hasn't been all that brilliant the last half a dozen holes. There is

:13:25.:13:31.

the abbey. It just shows you the estate. There is the golf course.

:13:32.:13:44.

It's not all that far away. The bottom, middle left is the

:13:45.:13:51.

television compound. On the second, we find Catriona Matthew.

:13:52.:14:02.

She was looking down the left-hand side, a little bit anxiously. Come

:14:03.:14:12.

out, come out, come out. Par-5. Needs to make a few birdies today

:14:13.:14:16.

and hopes Jutanugarn comes back a little bit. Stacy Lewis. 9-under.

:14:17.:14:25.

Just off the green, as you can see. Little chip. Just tiptoed on another

:14:26.:14:39.

four feet more than she'd hoped. 9-under, in fifth place at the

:14:40.:14:45.

moment. It just shows you how good Charley Hull's round was. She did

:14:46.:14:53.

get 29-under at one point. Jutanugarn, close to the bunker.

:14:54.:14:58.

Settled in the rough a little bit, but not a bad line coming into that

:14:59.:15:04.

right-hand pin position. Little ridge in the middle of the green.

:15:05.:15:24.

Ken Brown, following this game. I'm sure he will have much to report on

:15:25.:15:31.

the two wings and throwing is and the conferences on every shot. I am

:15:32.:15:37.

certainly looking forward to it. Bit cloudy all of a sudden, but no rain.

:15:38.:15:43.

133 yards, the pain is seven paces over. She has got a pitch and wedge.

:15:44.:15:52.

I don't know how softly that ball can be made to land. Look at that,

:15:53.:16:00.

stopped stone dead almost. To get to this flag, you really have got to

:16:01.:16:07.

come off the fairway. You can have a go at it, but you have got to come

:16:08.:16:14.

from the back of the green. Same for her playing partner, Mirim Lee. It

:16:15.:16:18.

will probably come out of there and run on a little bit. If it trickles

:16:19.:16:31.

67 yards past it, it will trickle off the back of the green. She too

:16:32.:16:41.

has one of her wedges. It looks like she is eyeing the flag. Not a lot of

:16:42.:16:50.

room? No, but if she can get it up she will have to rely on the

:16:51.:16:53.

trajectory rather than the spin to stop it. She is left of the flag. It

:16:54.:17:01.

took a bounce. The other one stopped within six or seven feet and that

:17:02.:17:08.

one just rolls off the back. Slight struggle for pars at the 1st. Slight

:17:09.:17:14.

struggle for Stacy Lewis on the par-5. Slight struggle, she had an

:17:15.:17:20.

eagle chance, but run it past. Still this for a birdie. Looks a bit

:17:21.:17:30.

perplexed. She knows she needs to get something going and a couple of

:17:31.:17:36.

pars to start with. A missed opportunity on the par-5 2nd. It

:17:37.:17:48.

could be a good one. By such margins. Championships are won and

:17:49.:17:52.

lost. Former US Open champion back in

:17:53.:18:13.

2011. The yardage books get bigger and bigger. They used to be little

:18:14.:18:19.

pocket diaries, but now they are bigger than the old Testament.

:18:20.:18:26.

Catriona Matthew, the shape of the tree sticking out. Crafty of them to

:18:27.:18:34.

leave those couple of trees in, wasn't it? Makes it an entirely

:18:35.:18:38.

different shot. New have to try and shape it around, right-to-left.

:18:39.:18:45.

Looks a good line, if it just turns. Excellent shot.

:18:46.:18:56.

Just got away from her yesterday. Started well, three birdies in the

:18:57.:19:05.

first four holes. Back to the first, Mirim Lee. She has left herself the

:19:06.:19:13.

best part of 40 feet and not easy to get the pace all the line right. You

:19:14.:19:19.

don't want to leave yourself a nasty three and a half foot. Got to take a

:19:20.:19:26.

very good touch to lay this stone dead. The surface of the greens,

:19:27.:19:33.

absolutely stunning. I don't think I've seen better. Come along. Just

:19:34.:19:46.

as the ball loses pace, the big swing at the end. That is eight out

:19:47.:19:56.

of ten. Mo Martin, second on the par-5. Very few par fives have been

:19:57.:19:58.

reached in two. Getting a bit of advice from her

:19:59.:20:41.

caddy, Peter. He has been a kingpin at reading the greens this week. He

:20:42.:20:49.

has been very involved, every time. It is tricky.

:20:50.:20:58.

Up the hill and a little down the other side. Over the ridge and down

:20:59.:21:16.

she comes. Slowing up. Oh dear. Charley Hull on the final green.

:21:17.:21:33.

For dropped strokes. Looking absolutely flying, looks as if she

:21:34.:21:38.

will finish in the top three or four. You never know, it may do if

:21:39.:21:44.

the others have golfing catastrophes. This will be about 69,

:21:45.:21:57.

68, 69. Might have been so much better. 69 it is. 13, 14, 15 is

:21:58.:22:10.

where she slipped up. Get ready for Rio now, Charley Hull. She will be

:22:11.:22:15.

playing alongside this woman the Great Britain. Eagle attempt for

:22:16.:22:21.

Catriona Matthew. Not too shabby. Brilliant. I don't think she will be

:22:22.:22:30.

to cross about that, getting down in two from such a long range. It just

:22:31.:22:37.

misses the flag and spins out. A whisker left, that would have gone

:22:38.:22:44.

in. In it goes further birdie. One of the shots she has two pick-up has

:22:45.:22:51.

been collected at the 2nd. Creeping closer to Jutanugarn. She would have

:22:52.:23:00.

expected that on a short par-5. Par putt at the 1st four Mirim Lee.

:23:01.:23:08.

Right in the middle. That is impressive. Very impressive. Leona

:23:09.:23:22.

Maguire, who is on the 4th hole. All pars so far. This is to save par,

:23:23.:23:35.

here. Well done! The 21-year-old, who is clear in the race for leading

:23:36.:23:47.

amateur. Mo Martin, for a birdie. No. Just slid across. That is a nice

:23:48.:23:59.

par. Funny sort of day. And there is a little bit of chill in the air. We

:24:00.:24:05.

have seen very little sunshine. There is a bit of wind blowing

:24:06.:24:10.

around the trees. A few sweaters and anoraks on today. This is one to

:24:11.:24:17.

test the putting on the first four Jutanugarn. The test has been

:24:18.:24:23.

passed. Might be an interesting dual between these two, Jutanugarn and

:24:24.:24:34.

Mirim Lee. Career against Thailand. A fascinating. In the last stroke

:24:35.:24:39.

play event in Ohio this month, Mirim Lee and Jutanugarn and Lydia Ko,

:24:40.:24:48.

fought out a play-off for the title. Eventually it was Lydia Ko who won

:24:49.:24:53.

it. These players have been in this pressure situation together very

:24:54.:24:56.

recently. It be interesting to who can handle the nerves better.

:24:57.:25:04.

Charley Hull, really did have it going. I'm sure the big crowd here

:25:05.:25:09.

at Woburn, this is where she grew up and learned her golf. She has given

:25:10.:25:16.

them a lot to smile about today. To the second tee and Mirim Lee. Watch

:25:17.:25:25.

this follow-through here. That would hurt those of less supple

:25:26.:25:32.

disposition. That is a great line now. Long Way down as well. Always

:25:33.:25:44.

chatting and smiling. Always busy. In no time to be sombre. Here comes

:25:45.:25:53.

the big piece of furniture. Or, her biggest piece of furniture. Only

:25:54.:26:01.

carries this 3-wood, which is like a shallow faced driver with a bit of

:26:02.:26:07.

loft on. She smacks that away Henrik Stenson style. And down it goes.

:26:08.:26:17.

There they are, almost side-by-side. Mirim Lee did give it a good shoot

:26:18.:26:24.

forward with the driver but Jude can you time is very long with the

:26:25.:26:40.

3-wood. -- Jutanugarn. Nearly whipped herself in the face with her

:26:41.:26:46.

ponytail fair. Matthew at the 3rd. Sweet swing.

:26:47.:26:57.

Can you put your cameras away while they are playing, please? Mo Martin,

:26:58.:27:09.

this should be a low trajectory. Doesn't get the ball tremendously

:27:10.:27:20.

airborne, but deadly accurate. That might just tiptoe of the fairway.

:27:21.:27:43.

Jutanugarn and Mirim Lee, both safely gathering.

:27:44.:27:55.

Look at where the tee shots are on the second. This par-5, sweeping

:27:56.:28:05.

round the corner to the left. Both are big hits, 3-wood for Jutanugarn.

:28:06.:28:10.

In prime position to have a pop at this par-5 in two. Not a huge amount

:28:11.:28:18.

going on on the green, just feed a little bit from the right-hand side.

:28:19.:28:30.

Amazingly, these big tall pines are in between them and the flag. She

:28:31.:28:47.

has 195 yards left. Shallow green. Pain is tucked over the bunker as

:28:48.:28:59.

well. -- pin. The scoring is more difficult today. Looking down our

:29:00.:29:03.

computers. There are a few better than par, but not all that many.

:29:04.:29:09.

Charley Hull got it going but the greens are a little firmer. Pins

:29:10.:29:15.

like this one are tucked over the big trap. You have got to be very

:29:16.:29:21.

accurate to get close to the flags. Remember, this is a par-5, so why

:29:22.:29:25.

should you have every blast at it and make it simple to get near the

:29:26.:29:33.

hole. She has got a 6-iron, Peter. It is not a par-5 then, is it. Too

:29:34.:29:41.

short. Cracks it down the right and it may not come back. Strained at

:29:42.:29:47.

that one little bit. Probably trying to drag it round. Might have done

:29:48.:29:54.

better with a five and play it more softly, more gently. This one is a

:29:55.:30:03.

different shot altogether. 188. Pops it up in the air. Similar line, it

:30:04.:30:12.

is going a bit quick. On the edge of the bunker, I think. Depends on the

:30:13.:30:17.

lie. Par-5 of the front line, Ryu.

:30:18.:30:36.

Beautifully done. Couple of birdies in the first two holes and the

:30:37.:30:37.

chance of a third here. Martin and Matthew both off the

:30:38.:30:54.

fairway. Bunker short on the right-hand side. Plenty of room.

:30:55.:31:04.

When Martin lines up this shot, she is only a small, very petite women.

:31:05.:31:13.

Look at her stamps and how big, how long the club appears to be. Don't

:31:14.:31:18.

know if you will get a good view this time, but sometimes it looks

:31:19.:31:21.

like she's using clubs which are two or three inches too long for her.

:31:22.:31:31.

Looks like a huge, long club. She only five foot one, five foot two.

:31:32.:31:38.

Swinger, not a hater. Timing all-important for her again slid it

:31:39.:31:54.

in beautifully. One hop and it was there she has to play an entirely

:31:55.:31:58.

different course to Jutanugam, coming from different distances with

:31:59.:32:07.

different clubs. Entirely different set of shotmaking, that is one of

:32:08.:32:11.

the fascinating aspects of the game. She moves to 9-under par. There are

:32:12.:32:22.

some birdies out there. Alongside Stacy Lewis in a tie for fifth. Back

:32:23.:32:28.

to the par-5. Catriona Matthew. 82 appearances in major

:32:29.:32:47.

Championships. Just need to carry three or four yards onto the green.

:32:48.:32:57.

Always going right. Always to the right.

:32:58.:33:14.

Just missed the sand but a hard lie where the tree roots are. Tricky to

:33:15.:33:29.

get this right. I way it goes. Suddenly this very birdie able par-5

:33:30.:33:38.

become something very different for Mirim Lee.

:33:39.:33:49.

Maguire, the amateur from Ireland. What a good player she is. Well

:33:50.:33:55.

ahead in the race for the amateur prize. And she has done another one.

:33:56.:34:02.

You may soon have some competition. A much more friendly lie, upslope,

:34:03.:34:29.

sitting quite nicely, better angle to the green. Just have to get the

:34:30.:34:32.

first bounce or it will kick to the left. Over the little hill. Just

:34:33.:34:42.

sounded a little bit fluffy. But that for birdie.

:34:43.:34:56.

9-under. Birdie, par, bogey on this hole, so need the hall and one for

:34:57.:35:05.

the full set! -- the hole-in-one. Just got about a yard of fringe to

:35:06.:35:31.

putt over, but it is the crispest looking fringe you will find. Can

:35:32.:35:36.

get the ball running off it quite easily, from this angle also putting

:35:37.:35:43.

a little up the hill. Didn't waste much time lining this one up.

:35:44.:36:04.

Making hard work of arrests after a very good tee shot. -- of this.

:36:05.:36:17.

Possible six are looming. See what Catriona Matthew can make of this,

:36:18.:36:18.

by head, this is very awkward. What a good shot there, that was

:36:19.:36:38.

very delicate Andrew, very tricky. Very well done. Good touch.

:36:39.:36:53.

Birdie putt. Might be,, could be a two shot swing here.

:36:54.:37:15.

How about that one? Very neat and tidy.

:37:16.:37:35.

Mo Martin with a long birdie attempt on the third.

:37:36.:37:44.

Has judge did very well indeed, oh! That is a bonus, a double bonus, you

:37:45.:37:56.

don't really expect to hole those. When you do it's a lovely feeling.

:37:57.:38:05.

Well done. The chase is on, Jutanugam clear, Mirim Lee trying to

:38:06.:38:09.

limit the damage here. Always left, it is a two shot swing

:38:10.:38:33.

on her playing partner. Mirim Lee slipping back. Just shows you how

:38:34.:38:41.

quickly things can change. Certainly might be a three shot swing, get a

:38:42.:38:48.

bit cross, hit it too hard and catch the edge. I'm not anticipating that,

:38:49.:38:54.

but this is for six after a perfect tee shot.

:38:55.:39:06.

Six it is. Much to ponder on the way to the third tee. Catriona Matthew

:39:07.:39:22.

just to finish out here on the third. Just catches the right edge,

:39:23.:39:33.

very good up and down, par, birdie, par start, six behind again.

:39:34.:39:37.

STUDIO: Confirmation that Jutanugam of Thailand has a real breathing

:39:38.:39:53.

space, a four shot lead. Mo Martin making progress as is Catriona

:39:54.:39:58.

Matthew, but this young 20-year-old keeps going on. Charley Hull, we saw

:39:59.:40:04.

her finishing off early, heading for a top 20 finish, let's can form what

:40:05.:40:09.

was a wonderful round, really had it going through 12 holes, 7-under

:40:10.:40:14.

before rather untidy finish, let's get for reflection. Did your whole

:40:15.:40:22.

major on your home golf course live up to expectations? It was great

:40:23.:40:27.

fun, I've enjoyed the whole week. Didn't play quake as well as I

:40:28.:40:32.

wanted to yesterday, I played well, today I played great apart from the

:40:33.:40:37.

last six holes, 9-under par for the tournament but I finished on

:40:38.:40:45.

5-under. You were 7-under for the day at one point, with the leaders

:40:46.:40:50.

going out there are only three players within six shots of the

:40:51.:40:54.

leader so how far back is too far back? I don't think, there is no far

:40:55.:41:03.

back, you can easily shoot a low one or a high one, if it happens the

:41:04.:41:09.

tables turn. What's next in the season? I am playing Rio then I have

:41:10.:41:14.

two weeks in Canada for the Canadian Open and another event over there

:41:15.:41:21.

then the Asian swing. Just a little bit more golf to be played, best of

:41:22.:41:26.

luck, particularly in the Olympics, I am glad you enjoyed your home

:41:27.:41:27.

Open. Thank you very much. Jessica Ennis-Hill is back on top of

:41:28.:41:49.

the world! Adam Peaty wins the gold. Nicola Adams has just made history!

:41:50.:42:00.

Goldberg Kenya! His 18th Olympic Gold Medal. They are world champions

:42:01.:42:15.

again! Bradley Wiggins is the Olympic champion! Laura Trott

:42:16.:42:21.

crosses the line as the world champion. Mo Farah streaking away!

:42:22.:42:33.

There could be gold coming for Great Britain's athletes and golf

:42:34.:42:38.

returning to the games after 112 years, Charley Hull, Catriona

:42:39.:42:41.

Matthew, Danny Willett, Justin Rose, three major winners and one in

:42:42.:42:49.

waiting you could say for Charley Hull, playing for Team GB.

:42:50.:42:55.

COMMENTATOR: It will be enjoyable. Jutanugam year with the iron again

:42:56.:43:03.

generates such clubhead speed. IS nationalities represented in the

:43:04.:43:43.

last seven groups out today, impressive array of global talent --

:43:44.:43:46.

ten nationalities represented. The mutterings of Tom Watson. I

:43:47.:44:25.

think the caddy for Jutanugam was his caddy a couple of times. Anyway,

:44:26.:44:32.

Catriona Matthew. I might have just imagined that, I have a vivid

:44:33.:44:37.

imagination. Nice drive-by Catriona Matthew, big crowds you can see,

:44:38.:44:45.

need to control the camera work. We are joining Leona Maguire just at

:44:46.:44:49.

one of the very few bad shots she has played all week. Been a

:44:50.:44:53.

magnificent performance by the young amateur.

:44:54.:45:16.

Being attacked by some sort of flying beastie.

:45:17.:45:49.

Go, she said. Was hitting with the 8-iron but needed a bit more. But

:45:50.:46:01.

good start by Martin, third place on her own at the moment.

:46:02.:46:18.

Cooler conditions now, just a hint of a smidgen of rain in the air.

:46:19.:46:34.

Another fine iron by Catriona but could be swept into a hollow. Just

:46:35.:46:46.

hanging on. Tomorrow max the 22nd anniversary of her turning

:46:47.:46:48.

professional, and what a career it has been. The tee shots of the final

:46:49.:46:56.

group on the third, Jutanugam getting around the corner. Lee

:46:57.:46:58.

first. Both with a good line to attack this

:46:59.:47:08.

flag. Which Mirim Lee does superbly. She picked up a birdie at the last

:47:09.:47:47.

but is giving it back straightaway. Long way clear of the second

:47:48.:47:54.

amateur, she was two over par. Will be eight shots clear or so after

:47:55.:48:03.

less. Jutanugam, 158. From that distance, not her best. She said

:48:04.:48:08.

yesterday Andrew that she hit a lot of poor iron shots but that was the

:48:09.:48:14.

distance her bad ones went to so she is still able to put together a

:48:15.:48:19.

really good score. This is a bit of a tester for Leona, normally solid

:48:20.:48:25.

on these. Then she goes. Backward she started the day on 7-under.

:48:26.:48:32.

Jutanugam is actually a year younger than Leona Maguire, some go to the

:48:33.:48:37.

professional ranks much younger, especially in the women's game.

:48:38.:48:41.

Jutanugam four shots clear bidding for her first major title. You have

:48:42.:48:54.

to 8-under and 7-under his too far back now.

:48:55.:49:06.

If it carried another two or three yards it would have kicked off the

:49:07.:49:12.

slope but it landed on the flat part sorry slightly longer putt than she

:49:13.:49:14.

anticipated. A bit of something left there. Has

:49:15.:49:37.

holed out so well. Both look a little nervous on the green this

:49:38.:49:40.

morning so far, haven't quite had the authority, certainly on his

:49:41.:49:47.

first couple of holes. Just a little bit lacking in pace in one or two of

:49:48.:49:58.

the putts. Mirim Lee won twice in America in 2014, but had a bit of a

:49:59.:50:04.

hand injury problem which held her back last year.

:50:05.:50:14.

Little did slope, this one. -- downslope.

:50:15.:50:28.

The Rose led on the whole, that was for sure. Looked good the hallway.

:50:29.:50:38.

Mo Martin with a lengthy birdie putt. She holed one longer than this

:50:39.:50:48.

at the last for her birdie. This one needs to do something rather

:50:49.:50:56.

drastic. A few players coming up short today, the greens a little bit

:50:57.:51:03.

damp, heavier air. Something is upsetting the players on the greens.

:51:04.:51:07.

She's gone short a couple times as well. This will either turn out to

:51:08.:51:12.

be a nerve settlor or a nerve jangling. It settles her nerves, if

:51:13.:51:20.

indeed it was needed. Big putt. Big putt, she said.

:51:21.:51:37.

Catriona Matthew, can she get to 12-under? Coming round, coming round

:51:38.:51:47.

and dropping! Catriona Matthew, two birdies in her first four, great

:51:48.:51:51.

start yesterday and another one today. Just five behind and a long

:51:52.:51:53.

way still to go. Lexi Thompson, world number four.

:51:54.:52:13.

Father on the bag. Lots of family caddy is out here this week. Very

:52:14.:52:20.

good shot, generates enough speed through the ball to gather a bit of

:52:21.:52:29.

spin on landing. Mo Martin making herself worked very hard for par

:52:30.:52:38.

here. The short, punchy stroke and on that occasion it was well

:52:39.:52:49.

off-line. Perfect tee shot, a bit of cut spin. Ideal.

:52:50.:53:01.

Always awkward when the hole turns from left to right and the fairway

:53:02.:53:07.

slopes the other way, awkward to find it sometimes. You need to shape

:53:08.:53:11.

it a little bit, in this case a little bit from left-to-right.

:53:12.:53:26.

Again, the different options, iron for Jutanugam, driver for Mirim Lee.

:53:27.:53:32.

That one just nestles down. The all-American pairing of Stacy

:53:33.:53:59.

Lewis and Lexi Thompson. Up on the fifth. Stacys first

:54:00.:54:09.

professional win was a major, and won this Championship at St Andrews.

:54:10.:54:30.

Very well holed indeed. Amazingly hasn't won an individual title for

:54:31.:54:33.

the last couple of years but feels her form is getting back to that

:54:34.:54:39.

stage. Catriona Matthew moving in the right direction, 3-wood in her

:54:40.:54:42.

hands here. Another dogleg right to left. Just

:54:43.:55:00.

pulled at a fraction. It was tight to the left but now near enough

:55:01.:55:05.

ideal. Thompson. Well done. Two nice birdies for the American

:55:06.:55:26.

pair. Identical start from the two of them, they might pull each other

:55:27.:55:34.

along quite well today. Out with the driver, Mo Martin. As we have said,

:55:35.:55:44.

not the longest player but always up near the top of the statistics for

:55:45.:55:51.

straightness of the tee. That is bounding on. You really have to find

:55:52.:55:59.

a rough down the left first of all to finish on the fairway as Mo

:56:00.:56:04.

Martin dead. The tee shot from Mirim Lee and Jutanugam on the fourth.

:56:05.:56:30.

The ball a little bit above her feet. Unusual green, the slope faces

:56:31.:56:42.

you for the first half of the green and the second half it tumbles away

:56:43.:56:45.

which is where the flag mac is cut today. You need to landed about 14

:56:46.:56:56.

for I would say. -- you need to landed about 1404I would say.

:56:57.:57:03.

Grand shot, just needs to grab. That looks to be an awkward one up

:57:04.:57:12.

against the collar. If you carry it on to the downslope, it can skid

:57:13.:57:19.

over the back, it's very steep, most unusual. Mirim Lee coming out of the

:57:20.:57:26.

rough. Needs to favour the right side a little, this is bound to come

:57:27.:57:28.

out with a bit of skip and run. I think she knew when she hit that

:57:29.:57:45.

it was going to be too hot. Might be a slightly easier chip than for

:57:46.:58:00.

Jutanugam. Very square in the takeaway, she was saying earlier in

:58:01.:58:04.

the week through an interpreter I may say that she sometimes gets the

:58:05.:58:11.

club shut going back. One of the things I have noticed about all of

:58:12.:58:15.

these players is how stable they are, how good their balance is

:58:16.:58:22.

through the hit. She's got a very low, rounded finish.

:58:23.:58:40.

After the sixth. Playing 165, the first par-3 today, Lexi Thompson.

:58:41.:58:51.

She has had a couple of struggles, bogey, bogey, par on this hole. It's

:58:52.:58:58.

an awkward looking swing through the hit, that of Lexi Thompson. But it

:58:59.:59:05.

works time and time again. Her feet dance a little bit and she seems to

:59:06.:59:12.

come out of it a little bit. Yes, it's normally only her putting which

:59:13.:59:17.

seems to give her any problems. She is a long, strong hitter. Matthew

:59:18.:59:25.

and Martin two of the most accurate players in the game today. The flag

:59:26.:59:29.

only eight gone. -- on. Good shot. Stacy Lewis playing alongside Lexi

:59:30.:59:54.

Thompson on the sixth. Thompson hopped on a little bit and

:59:55.:00:13.

Stacy Lewis' comes to a grinding halt. Mirim Lee, from the back of

:00:14.:00:28.

the fourth. Little steamy. A trifle heavy-handed, but it is difficult to

:00:29.:00:32.

judge how it is going to come out of that grass. 94 yards for Mo Martin.

:00:33.:00:46.

Be good. She says that so often. That is stunning from Mo Martin. She

:00:47.:00:57.

doesn't have the distance like Jutanugarn, but there are few as

:00:58.:01:11.

accurate. Pretty good line. What is the feeling, I wonder, if there are

:01:12.:01:18.

any nerves on show? Trying to get over the line for her first major.

:01:19.:01:24.

It will be very interesting. If she were to drop one shot, just to see

:01:25.:01:29.

how she handles that. She is scrambling a little bit for her pars

:01:30.:01:35.

just now. Beautiful technique through an awkward shot. HANS

:01:36.:01:39.

staying ahead of the blade and just hoped it forward. -- hands. The one

:01:40.:01:48.

thing Mirim Lee didn't want to do was not get past the flag. She is in

:01:49.:01:55.

the face of the Eiger here, this is quick. This will test your touch and

:01:56.:02:00.

your nerve, this one. It seemed to be travelling so

:02:01.:02:17.

slowly, that it must surely drop. One thing in Jutanugarn's favour,

:02:18.:02:24.

she is not being put under pressure by her playing partner. Mirim Lee

:02:25.:02:37.

now back to 12-under par. Alongside Catriona Matthew. Can she get to 13?

:02:38.:02:49.

A tie for second place at the moment the Katrina Matty. Five behind. A

:02:50.:03:01.

couple of good putts she has hold on the last couple of greens. The

:03:02.:03:05.

chasing pack have to keep chasing, they have to give the reader an

:03:06.:03:16.

opportunity to wobble. -- leader. This should be a formality for Mo

:03:17.:03:18.

Martin. That was very short indeed. I know

:03:19.:03:48.

she does hole a lot of putts with that putting stroke but it is a

:03:49.:03:54.

short, jabbing affair. Oh dear, after that wonderful shot in. Lexi

:03:55.:04:02.

Thompson, on the par-3. On the par-5, Leona Maguire. Little

:04:03.:04:36.

right to left on this putt. Just not borrowing quite enough. Was ranked

:04:37.:04:42.

number one in the amateur world for almost a year. Very much a

:04:43.:04:55.

positional tee shot this one. To the corner of the dogleg. 240 yards.

:04:56.:05:08.

Just looking at the top of those beech trees, they are hardly moving

:05:09.:05:20.

at all. Perfect for golf. This is a tee shot you cannot bully. You just

:05:21.:05:24.

have to play the percentage which is about 240 yards.

:05:25.:05:36.

Well, got away with that. That was sailing into the upper canopy, has

:05:37.:05:44.

come down. We can see what line she has from there, but it is lying well

:05:45.:05:53.

out in the clearing. Stacy Lewis. Trying to get something going here.

:05:54.:06:04.

That's the way to do it. That moves her to 11-under, back-to-back

:06:05.:06:10.

birdies. Six behind the leader at the moment, but only one out of

:06:11.:06:16.

second spot. There are four, five, six players just waiting for and

:06:17.:06:22.

needing a slip from Ariya Jutanugarn. No sign of that at the

:06:23.:06:24.

moment. Leona Maguire will be the leading

:06:25.:06:42.

amateur. But she will be looking for a top-10 finish.

:06:43.:06:54.

Tremendous rhythm to Matthew's swing. It is brisk without being

:06:55.:07:09.

hurried, if that's not a contradiction in terms? She has just

:07:10.:07:14.

leaked a couple out to the right with her irons so far today,

:07:15.:07:21.

Maureen. It is one of those greens that throws the ball of the putting

:07:22.:07:28.

surface. It seems to be favour of the designer, that was? Evil man.

:07:29.:07:34.

No, Clive Clarke. Discussions are ongoing. Mo Martin, coming off the

:07:35.:07:51.

back of that very short list putt. -- missed.

:07:52.:08:07.

Very good swing indeed, as the caddy was saying. Both these players,

:08:08.:08:17.

owners of one major title, both having won this very one. As we look

:08:18.:08:25.

down on the final group on the 5th hole. Mirim Lee, just getting away

:08:26.:08:31.

with that tee shot. Rattled into the trees. News of her to come, but

:08:32.:08:37.

Jutanugarn, first of all. The course is looking lovely. Those high shots,

:08:38.:08:43.

it looks superb. She has left her sub 138, the pin is six yards to the

:08:44.:08:52.

right. This requires a high, soft landing shot. With her power, she

:08:53.:08:59.

can do that. Exactly what she did. This is a better angle to the flag.

:09:00.:09:19.

Only 117 left and a reasonable line. Mirim Lee went through the trees and

:09:20.:09:25.

didn't hit a single branch. It doesn't work very often like that,

:09:26.:09:32.

does it? Lovely shot. Beautiful shot from Jutanugarn. Taking advantage

:09:33.:09:42.

from her good fortune. Well done, Mirim Lee. Jutanugarn has a slightly

:09:43.:09:51.

longer birdie putt. Now, the split Fairway par-5. Stacy Lewis, going

:09:52.:09:58.

down the right. Maybe going to Central? Cutting back. Yes, nice,

:09:59.:10:04.

friendly bounce. Onto the launch pad. She will have about 240 yards

:10:05.:10:16.

or so, from there to the green. Matthew, just below the level of the

:10:17.:10:25.

green here. See how she plays this. Picking her landing spot.

:10:26.:10:36.

Bit of bother on the par 34 Catriona Matthew.

:10:37.:10:51.

-- par-3, four Catriona Matthew. Lexi Thompson, 3-wood here. That

:10:52.:11:01.

looks like it is heading into the central area. That can't be good. It

:11:02.:11:11.

is subterranean. Catriona Matthew had a very similar

:11:12.:11:34.

putt to this one. Left it out to the right. It should turn a little from

:11:35.:11:45.

the right. That is pretty much work Catriona Matthew hit it. It is not

:11:46.:11:50.

exactly the same putt, but I think Katrina Matty was a bit perplexed by

:11:51.:11:57.

it. It is in kind of a little valley. It may not turn as much as

:11:58.:12:02.

it looks. It appears to be somewhat right.

:12:03.:12:17.

Exactly the same. It is confusing us all. Mo Martin's birdie putt. The

:12:18.:12:34.

one thing is, she won't want to leave herself the length of putt she

:12:35.:12:43.

missed at the last. So... Very good effort.

:12:44.:12:51.

Mirim Lee, see if she can get one shot back. Gave that the race.

:12:52.:13:10.

Straight over Jutanugarn's marker. Lots of moving of markers.

:13:11.:13:26.

Jutanugarn, aiming to become the first player from Thailand to win a

:13:27.:13:32.

major. Mirim Lee trying to follow in a long line of South Koreans who

:13:33.:13:34.

have won Majors. Always amazed at the number of South

:13:35.:13:55.

Koreans who have popped up, had won two good seasons and seem as though

:13:56.:13:58.

they will dominate the game and then fade back into the pack and little

:13:59.:14:11.

bit. Yes, Hyo Joo Kim, she is now back on the LPGA. Sometimes I think

:14:12.:14:16.

they need a bit of a break and recuperate. Jutanugarn, still five

:14:17.:14:26.

clear. Five holes played. This would be a great par said of Matthew's. --

:14:27.:14:37.

save. Well, not to be. That drops her back to 11-under, six

:14:38.:14:49.

behind. Stacy Lewis, from the end of the

:14:50.:15:08.

right half of the fairway here on the seventh. Playing alongside Lexi

:15:09.:15:19.

Thompson who has just had to pitch out after finding the trees in the

:15:20.:15:23.

middle. Stacy Lewis into the sand. Or thereabouts.

:15:24.:15:29.

There has been plenty of movements beneath the serene Ariya Jutanugarn

:15:30.:15:38.

at the top. Mirim Lee, five shots behind and Catriona Matthew, who had

:15:39.:15:42.

made some form of the Mantom has been brought to a halt by the bogey

:15:43.:15:48.

at the 6th. Stacy Lewis in a tie for third. This is the last eventual

:15:49.:15:54.

play as a single woman. Get married next week and then goes on honeymoon

:15:55.:15:58.

to Rio, where she will compete in the goal. So Yeon Ryu, has been a

:15:59.:16:08.

11th and fourth and tenth so far and is heading for a very good finish

:16:09.:16:15.

once again. And me YE Yang Lee is our leader in the clubhouse. That is

:16:16.:16:25.

how it stands. Do we have some drama to come over the next few holes?

:16:26.:16:35.

COMMENTATOR: Only time will tell. Mo Martin, cracking one way at the 7th.

:16:36.:16:40.

Birdie, birdie, birdie. It has been very kind to her this hole. It looks

:16:41.:16:43.

another good one. The pin is cut over the little

:16:44.:17:25.

hollow. Just over at four yards. 8-iron out. Hardly anything of a

:17:26.:17:33.

breeze. If anything, just a bit of movement from behind. The question

:17:34.:17:40.

is, where to land it. If you land it sure, it is going to get gathered up

:17:41.:17:42.

by the hollow. Just one bounce too many. But very

:17:43.:17:59.

nice shot. Very impressive, Ken? Last time we saw Lexi Thompson's

:18:00.:18:07.

ball, it was at the base of a tree. She has chipped out to here.

:18:08.:18:13.

Pitching up and into the steep upslope on the front portion of this

:18:14.:18:20.

green. The spin she generates, taking it back of the putting

:18:21.:18:30.

surface. Mirim Lee, one more 7-iron. She has the same problem, if it

:18:31.:18:35.

takes one more bounce, it will grind to a halt. Same shot.

:18:36.:18:59.

Matthew, going down the right on seven. Pretty much the line of

:19:00.:19:14.

Thomson's. It seemed to scamper through a lot. Not sure where that

:19:15.:19:21.

leaves her. On the edge of the thick stuff. I think she got away with

:19:22.:19:28.

that one. Stacey is in a lot of trouble. Big bunker on the seventh.

:19:29.:19:40.

Par-5. That was a strange sound. But it didn't come out too badly.

:19:41.:19:55.

A five shot lead now. We hoped it wasn't going to be a stroll in the

:19:56.:20:07.

park, because we wanted a bit of drama. But you have got to admire

:20:08.:20:12.

the way our leader has kept playing, flawless golf. But the scoring

:20:13.:20:17.

hasn't been as good today. Whether it is a slight change in temperature

:20:18.:20:24.

or the flag position, whatever. Thompson, for a long birdie attempt

:20:25.:20:34.

at the 7th. APPLAUSE

:20:35.:20:42.

Good weight. When you are chasing and you have the power of Lexi

:20:43.:20:48.

Thompson, you want to eat up the par fives. Back to the short hole. Both

:20:49.:20:54.

players through the green. The last pair out on the course. I think the

:20:55.:21:03.

greens are just that little bit firmer. Getting to these flags is

:21:04.:21:06.

trickier. I think that's the difference between now and earlier

:21:07.:21:12.

in the week. They are big targets, the greens are very generous. But

:21:13.:21:17.

there are some long rolls on this. Certainly not flat. You have got to

:21:18.:21:21.

think what you are doing on the greens. You could hit a good shot

:21:22.:21:29.

and then end up with a putting macro -- putt like this. They have a

:21:30.:21:38.

consistent bounce? Yes, they are very smooth, level and true. If they

:21:39.:21:44.

where any faster, they would be very tricky. Marginally down the hill,

:21:45.:21:51.

will see how it runs out. She has got the flag out. This is all of 12,

:21:52.:22:07.

13 paces. Steady, steady, steady. That is the spirit of youth.

:22:08.:22:20.

Knocking five, six feet past. Now, Stacy Lewis, birdied five, birdied

:22:21.:22:29.

six. Just a little bit short of pace. Only a par on seven. That will

:22:30.:22:40.

keep her at 11-under. Six behind. Just a marginal debate as to whether

:22:41.:23:01.

this was on the green or not. But any part of the ball touching the

:23:02.:23:08.

green, is classed as it is so she can market and claim it. She did

:23:09.:23:13.

learn something about the line. A very quick learner, this lady. She

:23:14.:23:21.

is tiptoeing up on the record score for this Championship which is

:23:22.:23:25.

currently held by Karen Stupples. 19-under, Karen was in 2004 at

:23:26.:23:33.

Sunningdale. I was there, I remember it well. I will never forget the

:23:34.:23:40.

start she had. It was an eagle, albatross, whatever it was,

:23:41.:23:46.

something ridiculous. What a stress and strain on Mirim Lee. Up to it.

:23:47.:23:56.

It keeps her arrival in view. But only just in view. She is just round

:23:57.:24:03.

the bend, up ahead. Creeping away now, Matthew. Played a perfect

:24:04.:24:08.

layup. As Ken was saying, the firmness of

:24:09.:24:26.

the bounce taking that on past. She drove almost into the thick stuff.

:24:27.:24:34.

Had to chunk it forward. Leona Maguire has done the same number

:24:35.:24:39.

nine. You see her following her swing down the hill. That is player

:24:40.:24:46.

walk. Yes, the old master would be pleased with that.

:24:47.:24:58.

It is the Lady's competition in Conway, North Wales. More about that

:24:59.:25:07.

in a moment. They do take big divots. Stop, stop, stop. The ladies

:25:08.:25:13.

and girls home internationals in North Wales, is an exciting time for

:25:14.:25:21.

the club. Never been done before. The ladies and the girls

:25:22.:25:25.

internationals, played at the same time, same place. Stacy Lewis.

:25:26.:25:35.

Stoked a little bit. Working its way back behind the flag. Here is the

:25:36.:25:48.

leader. What happened there? That little mosquito or fly will never

:25:49.:25:58.

know how close they came... Doesn't it look nice, the trees in the

:25:59.:26:04.

middle of the fairway. Most players go down the right, it is a bit wider

:26:05.:26:08.

down there and it does give you a better angle if you are trying to

:26:09.:26:14.

reach the two. She has put that in the woods. Mike hit one of the trees

:26:15.:26:21.

and stop. Might be OK. Got away with it. They are lucky, these women. You

:26:22.:26:37.

have to be good to be lucky. Driver. The fairways are also trying out.

:26:38.:26:42.

She doesn't want to go down the right. If she really clatters one,

:26:43.:26:52.

she could go too far. 282 go at the end. Close to the edge of the woods.

:26:53.:27:00.

Bounding down. Got away with it. Jolly combination. Catriona Matthew

:27:01.:27:34.

with a birdie putt at the 7th. Not quite the legs.

:27:35.:27:44.

Leona Maguire, Irish amateur. She is rattling in a few long one. That

:27:45.:27:55.

would have gone in if it had a little more beef behind it. Out in

:27:56.:28:09.

par, one bogey, one birdie. 7-under, nice golf.

:28:10.:28:20.

Mo Martin. Her chance the birdie now on seven. Might have had a bit of

:28:21.:28:37.

help from Catriona Matthew's. It is a good line. Good putt. She has done

:28:38.:28:42.

a couple of those. Only seven holes gone. She looks as if she meant it,

:28:43.:28:48.

too. Both these players in possession of

:28:49.:29:09.

one major. Both of them former winners of this title. Catriona

:29:10.:29:19.

Matthew is giving this a lot of looks. It's one of those funny

:29:20.:29:25.

distances. As you look down at the ball, you can see the whole out of

:29:26.:29:30.

the corner of your eye. It can be a distraction if you are a little bit

:29:31.:29:35.

twitchy. That's a good view. Let's see how it goes. Right in the

:29:36.:29:36.

middle. Jutanugarn is enjoying a six shot

:29:37.:29:58.

lead at the moment. This is her third British Open Championship.

:29:59.:30:03.

This time last year, Sheila Turnberry, having missed her tenth

:30:04.:30:08.

consecutive cut and she was in pieces. -- she left. Did know what

:30:09.:30:13.

she was going to do. Started working with Gary Gilchrist, head coach and

:30:14.:30:24.

then she had this little pre-shot smile, helped calm her down. And

:30:25.:30:29.

here we are. Nothing else, the total ingredient. How fortunes can change

:30:30.:30:37.

in a year. Confidence. You have got to have skill, you need certain

:30:38.:30:42.

ingredients to be a great champion. Playing with desire but not enough

:30:43.:30:47.

nerve. Plenty of skill but no desire. It is a mixed bag. You

:30:48.:30:53.

wouldn't fancy a shot through there. Exit down the left at the bottom of

:30:54.:31:02.

the trees. It looked like she was eyeing up a Guinness book of record

:31:03.:31:03.

shot through the trees. But no. 206 yards, not a bad lie, could be

:31:04.:31:17.

better. If she flies it at the flag it is liable to scoot to the back of

:31:18.:31:22.

the green so difficult to get close. Try to get it close but that's not

:31:23.:31:26.

easy either as there is a big bank at the front of the green. Looked

:31:27.:31:35.

like a nice shot, is it online? Just pushed a bit right, bunker.

:31:36.:31:52.

She gave that a real rattle, cannot believe how far past it's gone.

:31:53.:32:14.

Difficult when you are in the chasing bunch, pressing, pressing.

:32:15.:32:19.

STUDIO: And they will have to keep pressing because look at this, six

:32:20.:32:29.

shots the difference. A long way back here, she is ensuring, is

:32:30.:32:37.

Jutanugam, towards a record score in a women's major. You mention

:32:38.:32:40.

19-under which was achieved by Karrie Webb earlier in this

:32:41.:32:49.

Championships history, 19 is the record low, it's been achieved a few

:32:50.:32:56.

times before. She is getting ever closer. We might have some history

:32:57.:33:03.

here. COMMENTATOR: It is worthy of a bit of history. An amazing complex.

:33:04.:33:13.

That little bit of aggression, trying to force something out of the

:33:14.:33:20.

golf course, you kick yourself when you walk off with a dropped shot.

:33:21.:33:28.

Didn't she make that looks simple? Just a little easy swing up, 12, 14

:33:29.:33:53.

foot for birdie. I have really enjoyed watching her, it's the first

:33:54.:33:57.

time I have seen her in the flesh, I walked a few holes with her in the

:33:58.:34:01.

practice round and had a chat. So impressive. This lady is impressive

:34:02.:34:11.

as well, Martin. At the 8th. She has outgunned all the way, got a series

:34:12.:34:16.

of whiplike wooden headed clubs, all sorts of magic little tools. She is

:34:17.:34:23.

playing superbly. She is using what ammunition she has two the fullest

:34:24.:34:31.

advantage, very impressive. They have seen it all before you know. I

:34:32.:34:37.

remember seeing Lee Trevino here, oh boy could he play!

:34:38.:34:48.

163 yards. All the par-3s in slightly different directions so you

:34:49.:35:06.

get slightly different winds that is very unlike Catriona. I fancy she's

:35:07.:35:15.

in the bunker. Here is another one in the bunker. Nice lie, bit of

:35:16.:35:23.

green to land the ball on. Should be manageable. Played it nicely, will

:35:24.:35:28.

it run up? It's doing pretty well. The girl has been very impressive

:35:29.:35:41.

hasn't she? Look at this bunker shot. The edge of the bunker, like

:35:42.:35:51.

the kerbstone. She is all five foot below the green so you have two hit

:35:52.:35:54.

it hard enough but make sure you follow through. The sand throws the

:35:55.:35:58.

ball up and out. Chance for birdie. Looks like more bunker play coming

:35:59.:36:08.

up. That was off the tee, her tee shot

:36:09.:36:27.

there. That's OK. Pretty well advanced, quite a deep bunker. She

:36:28.:36:35.

is very impressive. Yes, her twin is her caddy, Lisa. Two fine players.

:36:36.:36:43.

Ireland have produced some wonderful players, men and women. Thank you

:36:44.:36:48.

Peter! I go back a long time, I remember them with a great deal of

:36:49.:36:54.

fondness. We are very lucky, and we have Padraig Harrington to thank for

:36:55.:36:57.

starting the waterfall of major Championship winners. He played well

:36:58.:37:03.

yesterday out in America as well. Putt for birdie. This isn't easy to

:37:04.:37:10.

see the line. The green tilts to the front which is to her right. Slight

:37:11.:37:16.

right-to-left movement which isn't easy to see. But no need to do

:37:17.:37:22.

anything silly, just play nicely, with the lead she has. Just going to

:37:23.:37:34.

stay right. No sweat at all. Very simple par on a dangerous hole. Been

:37:35.:37:41.

a couple of eights on this whole this week. First major this year she

:37:42.:37:53.

had eight two shot lead and blew it. Memories, memories. Not quite

:37:54.:37:59.

running out for her. She has her a couple of very awkward

:38:00.:38:13.

shots from just around the green. Back to the seventh. She needs to

:38:14.:38:23.

pop this one in. Give her a bit of a boost.

:38:24.:38:31.

No. The lead stays the same. Nothing is happening for her. She is

:38:32.:38:39.

beginning to look just a shade discouraged. Just a shade. You could

:38:40.:38:45.

tell by the way, all sorts of things.

:38:46.:38:54.

The poppy putting stroke and a little bit of momentum building for

:38:55.:39:01.

Mo Martin. Birdie on seven and eight. She moves into second place

:39:02.:39:07.

on her own at 13-under. They are long putts as well. Not to dollars.

:39:08.:39:12.

Yes and she did miss peddler earlier. Catriona. She had a couple

:39:13.:39:28.

of shorter putts, but this is ten, 12 feet? That sort of thing, maybe a

:39:29.:39:35.

bit more. She has been putting superbly this week. She has a

:39:36.:39:42.

comfortable style. If you look, it's almost textbook, simple

:39:43.:39:56.

Up ahead on the ninth. Lewis. Just tipped over the end of the fairway.

:39:57.:40:25.

Should sweep around a little bit to be slightly more helpful. That was a

:40:26.:40:31.

nice little kick and spin. The pre-shot smile. There we go. I

:40:32.:40:48.

find that fascinating. I am enjoying it, I like it. 7-iron from 163, I

:40:49.:40:55.

hope she is enjoying it because it is enjoyable to watch. Up you go.

:40:56.:41:03.

Very safe. Very professional. Just got a moment, would like to

:41:04.:41:20.

remember Sir Richard George who died this year, the Weetabix man who

:41:21.:41:23.

sponsored this tournament for 20 years. He had real faith in the

:41:24.:41:27.

ladies game and would be delighted to see what is going on here, the

:41:28.:41:33.

ladies game has come so far. Great supporter, he and his company. It

:41:34.:41:37.

was his brother who was so interested in Leicester Cricket

:41:38.:41:40.

club, Leicester football club I should say who have done so

:41:41.:41:44.

brilliantly. Nice when you get the sort of connections. Sit down. Nice

:41:45.:41:47.

shot. Here is one of the few players who

:41:48.:42:06.

is making any inroads. You see what I mean about the club looking huge

:42:07.:42:10.

question mark looks as if it's six inches too long for her. It's

:42:11.:42:14.

amazing how she swings it round, times it beautifully. It's going to

:42:15.:42:22.

go out, just going to reach the rough. Steady on.

:42:23.:42:32.

3-wood for Catriona. Good shot they cried. It. Virtually stone dead. A

:42:33.:43:09.

banana, oh. Little chip from the front of the green. The amateur out

:43:10.:43:16.

of the bunker, hit the tee shot into the bunker, good shot out to hear.

:43:17.:43:24.

Chip and run, looks good. A touch unfortunate, I thought that was

:43:25.:43:29.

going to run right to the whole. -- hole. Philomena Garvey, there is a

:43:30.:43:41.

name from the past. Yes, great Irish player. Lexi Thompson, down quite

:43:42.:43:50.

ridge. Not coming left to right as she expected. Came a little bit a

:43:51.:44:04.

little later. Leona Maguire. She has parted quite beautifully thus far.

:44:05.:44:12.

-- putted. She is looking to become the third Irish winner, it was won

:44:13.:44:22.

in 1996 and 1984. She would join our list of illustrious names.

:44:23.:44:33.

Bit like Bernie the ball is in Peter? CHUCKLES

:44:34.:44:42.

Up a bit, did a bit, left a bit, right a bit, fire. Oh, you have

:44:43.:44:44.

missed it. If she takes that line she's got to

:44:45.:44:56.

hit it quite slowly otherwise I think it might just stay on the high

:44:57.:44:58.

side. Two putts will do. Just slowed up. No sweat is it?

:44:59.:45:19.

Everything is coming nice and easy. It's great to watch, in complete

:45:20.:45:24.

command of her game. And the sun has come out, so that's nice. Look at

:45:25.:45:31.

this contact, watch the ball, doesn't roll at all. Still skidding,

:45:32.:45:39.

then it starts to turn. Like a car wheels that always appear to be

:45:40.:45:47.

going backwards. She has may written on the golf ball, that is her family

:45:48.:45:56.

nickname. Did you have a nickname? I was called that so by my family for

:45:57.:45:59.

years. You wouldn't be allowed to do it these days but then nobody

:46:00.:46:04.

bothered, it never bothered me. -- I was called fatso by my family for

:46:05.:46:09.

years. Good line but no beef. Holes are

:46:10.:46:13.

running out. From the shadow on the ninth, Stacy

:46:14.:46:55.

Lewis cleaning up. Out in 35, 1-under. Got herself into double

:46:56.:47:03.

figures. Nice looking card but she seems to have wasted or dropped

:47:04.:47:07.

quite a few shots. Could be going very well. Jutanugam is just not

:47:08.:47:15.

giving any encouragement. They will be watching the scoreboard closely,

:47:16.:47:18.

trying to detect if there is any weakness. I remember first time,

:47:19.:47:25.

early pictures of Jack Nicklaus, he seemed to have an inevitability

:47:26.:47:29.

about him and she seems to have the same. Matthew, she need something to

:47:30.:47:34.

happen. You need a touch of magic, a bit of luck, a bit of something.

:47:35.:47:40.

That might have stopped, might have spun back, might have done this or

:47:41.:47:45.

that. It was fired right at the flag, she hasn't really got what she

:47:46.:47:48.

deserved from the strike of the shot. No. No. It's a game of, such a

:47:49.:48:02.

fine game, all games are fine. I like to follow the darts and I think

:48:03.:48:07.

they are quite magical the way they can, the consistency of score. Got

:48:08.:48:16.

the trousers off now! Ready to crack one onto the ninth. Downhill, bit of

:48:17.:48:25.

a fluffy lie. This surely can't stop, if she lacks it properly it

:48:26.:48:29.

will go to the back of the green. -- if she hits it properly.

:48:30.:48:38.

Sounded a bit clumpy. One big leap through the back. It's a bit of a

:48:39.:48:49.

tactical error to run out of fairway they are and not becoming of the

:48:50.:48:52.

short stuff, especially with that flag position today. Behind them,

:48:53.:49:11.

waiting to drive, the final pair. I was talking about Blairgowrie, I was

:49:12.:49:19.

up there last week, the majesty of this place, Blairgowrie has got it.

:49:20.:49:26.

A touch of class about it. Jesse Valentine country. Lovely park

:49:27.:49:36.

there. Rosemount. The 40th anniversary of the Lansdowne course

:49:37.:49:41.

which has come on in leaps and bounds. You can see from the

:49:42.:49:49.

scoreboard how the lead has been stretched. Something serious has to

:49:50.:49:57.

happen to catch this lady. She is playing well, this is up the par

:49:58.:50:02.

four, very generous wide fairway that runs away from you.

:50:03.:50:17.

Jack Nicklaus used to play this sort of game. You felt somehow when they

:50:18.:50:24.

were in full swing they were like a giant tank that was just going to

:50:25.:50:31.

swish through everything. 20 years of age or whatever she is, she has

:50:32.:50:35.

got a great time ahead. As we look at Mirim. Not a fairway you to miss,

:50:36.:50:50.

this one. Did it stay on? Yes, going down the left, it's all right, tell

:50:51.:50:56.

me, do you have the kernel with you? We sure do, he's walking down the

:50:57.:51:03.

right of the night. 14 years with us giving us information from the

:51:04.:51:07.

fairway, how far they are from the green, it's his final day, we might

:51:08.:51:12.

get a shot of him. You cannot miss him. He's like the tortoise done

:51:13.:51:17.

their here, he is everywhere but he never seems to move. He has been

:51:18.:51:24.

with me many rounds and we've had a lot of laughs. They've done a

:51:25.:51:31.

tremendous, taking their lead from the Army to come and support the

:51:32.:51:38.

golf. I shall miss them. There he is. Death is a post, but look at

:51:39.:51:44.

him, only goes. -- death is Mo Martin really needs to get down

:51:45.:52:11.

into mac here, just to keep this little bit of momentum that she has

:52:12.:52:18.

going -- in two here. We have seen a few shots from this side and they

:52:19.:52:22.

get to the hole and then it speeds up, if she gets this within three

:52:23.:52:30.

feet it will be a nice touch. That short, quick putting stroke, needs

:52:31.:52:38.

to go a bit. She's done it. That is sweet, that is very sweet indeed.

:52:39.:52:50.

You are saying about this girl three years she played on the second

:52:51.:52:57.

later, five years or more? Her career has been a bit of a slow burn

:52:58.:53:03.

compared to some players, she has been out on the LPGA Tour, this is

:53:04.:53:09.

her fifth year. The high point so far was winning the British. As we

:53:10.:53:16.

go back to another former champion. Long birdie attempt and that's a

:53:17.:53:20.

very good putt as well. A wonderful professional, Catriona

:53:21.:53:38.

Matthew. Not mercurial but has made a good living. When I started the

:53:39.:53:43.

game you went into it to make a living and hopefully you ended up a

:53:44.:53:48.

professional add a nice club and you were OK. Now of course they all want

:53:49.:53:53.

to be number one in the world, the life of a club professional is about

:53:54.:53:59.

forgotten. She is tiptoeing up this year to passing $10 million in

:54:00.:54:05.

career earnings so it has served her very nicely. You have got to be

:54:06.:54:09.

taxed or don't you, that takes and a blight of it. -- takes and the ball

:54:10.:54:17.

out of it. This is just as important as the big long ones she has holed.

:54:18.:54:29.

She is doing very, very nicely, thank you. Just the one dropped shot

:54:30.:54:34.

at the 4th. The final pair. Both in good shape.

:54:35.:54:52.

Lovely golf hole, this. The green sits way below the players for the

:54:53.:54:57.

second shot. This is a bit awkward, with the tree and the wind of the

:54:58.:55:05.

left. 165 yards, dangerous pin to go at. Ideally you have two land to the

:55:06.:55:11.

left of it, anything right is a mistake. She groaned. Clipped the

:55:12.:55:17.

tree and virtually dropped dead. A danger. Just nudged it, but enough

:55:18.:55:27.

to take everything out of it. The strike seemed to be OK. Crisp, up

:55:28.:55:38.

she goes. I don't know if our cameraman are so brilliant, it just

:55:39.:55:42.

went out of you. You are better position. This won't be going... Too

:55:43.:56:01.

far off the pin. A rare error. Slightly pushed, one bounce and into

:56:02.:56:11.

trouble. No way she was aiming at that pin, are trying to take it on.

:56:12.:56:18.

Far too tactically aware to do that. Just a little bit of a pushed shot.

:56:19.:56:25.

Missed three greens yesterday and got up and down every time. Stacy

:56:26.:56:35.

Lewis. 10-under. Out in 35, one dropped shot, two birdies. Good

:56:36.:56:37.

shot. Bowled, unlucky. -- oh, unlucky.

:56:38.:57:18.

Catriona Matthew. Not using the driver by the look of things. Club

:57:19.:57:23.

with a little bit of loft on for position. One of the many holes here

:57:24.:57:33.

where if you can get a bit of sheep, a bit dogleg left to right right to

:57:34.:57:37.

left, ordered tree on the corner which can influence you. Seems happy

:57:38.:57:45.

enough yes. This is an awfully difficult shot,

:57:46.:58:01.

green above you, nothing to land it on. She will do well to keep this on

:58:02.:58:14.

the green. Just as you said, Ken. She was on a hiding to nothing. Once

:58:15.:58:28.

she clipped the tree. Just made the mistake at the wrong time, really.

:58:29.:58:39.

Unlucky to clip the branch. It's like when you're playing in hot

:58:40.:58:46.

countries and you just touch a Palm, you think you can get through, it

:58:47.:58:52.

just touches it and it drops stone dead. That ball fell out of the sky.

:58:53.:58:58.

Looking for pitch marks but I think the green is to step mac. How is it

:58:59.:59:06.

down in the bunker. This select is 12 feet high. She had to say to

:59:07.:59:13.

herself I am going to give myself 25, 30 five feet four par. Don't be

:59:14.:59:27.

greedy. That's pretty good. Better than pretty good. We talk about her

:59:28.:59:38.

long game but her short game skills this week have been exceptional as

:59:39.:59:39.

well. Mo Martin. Long chip and run. It's not over,

:59:40.:00:20.

not over for Harriet. Easy to take three from here. -- for her yet.

:00:21.:00:26.

After a really good tee shot, six would be horrid. Nice lie, just a

:00:27.:00:33.

basic back foot pitching wedge, shunt it forward. Sounded a little

:00:34.:00:42.

scruffy. It's doing well, Ken. Good judge of pace.

:00:43.:00:53.

Don't you just love these slow motion, I love them. Up she goes.

:00:54.:01:07.

Ken, I don't know if you've managed to get a look at this putt, but it's

:01:08.:01:15.

so difficult to read. I have seen some putts miss from the right, some

:01:16.:01:20.

from the left. They just wander off in both directions. Let's have a

:01:21.:01:26.

really good look. These seem to be, as it was coming down the slope,

:01:27.:01:32.

drifting towards the right. Let's see where the Caddy points. He has

:01:33.:01:38.

his green reading book out. And a compass. Here he goes. Here he goes.

:01:39.:01:47.

And a weedy board and everything. Doing a fantastic job, Peter.

:01:48.:01:54.

Everything he says, she is convinced he is right. If you have got that

:01:55.:01:59.

trust, it is a terrific settler but the mind. Is he a regular, he sounds

:02:00.:02:07.

like a south London boy. I will find out where he's from. Yes, find out,

:02:08.:02:14.

he might be one of us. This would be amazing. The pace was perfect. Good

:02:15.:02:25.

shout, Maureen. Pace and speed. You could have a dozen putts, like the

:02:26.:02:32.

final putt Sandy Lyle hold at the Masters. You could have it a hundred

:02:33.:02:37.

times and it would go a different way. Sometimes they go left,

:02:38.:02:45.

sometimes they go right. She marches of. Don't forget your partner. Or

:02:46.:02:54.

you're playing companion of the day. I think it might be a comfort stop.

:02:55.:03:04.

Tidied away by Mirim Lee. But it is an untidy front nine of 39. The

:03:05.:03:20.

first signs of some frailty by Jutanugarn. Stacy Lewis! Running

:03:21.:03:27.

back to her. Really good hole location. Sarcasm is the first

:03:28.:03:34.

refuge for frustrated golfers. But she is running out of chances, seven

:03:35.:03:47.

behind. Tee-shots and the difference between Catriona Matthew and Mo

:03:48.:03:54.

Martin. Martin was 210 off the tee. Coming in from 134, or so. She is so

:03:55.:04:00.

accurate, usually. Once again, I have given her the big build-up.

:04:01.:04:13.

Good swing again. She doesn't disappoint, but that hops on a

:04:14.:04:20.

little bit. Only four behind now. You know, you think about the putt

:04:21.:04:27.

of about a foot or so she missed earlier. I know, he is Leona Maguire

:04:28.:04:33.

and I see a lot of similarity in Mo Martin and Leona Maguire's games.

:04:34.:04:38.

Similar build. A little unlucky there from Leona Maguire. Very good

:04:39.:04:50.

shot. Twin sister, Lisa. Catriona Matthew, can she get her round going

:04:51.:05:03.

again? 113 yards to the pin. Get down.

:05:04.:05:15.

Stacy Lewis. The long hitters can just about get home here in two. But

:05:16.:05:28.

that is going into the trees. Oh, it has done all right. That will be a

:05:29.:05:34.

bit of a chess moves down the fairway.

:05:35.:05:40.

Straight par this one. 344 yards. Hello, it's not going right, is it?

:05:41.:05:58.

It is. There is a bunker down there, but 230 off the tee. It did bounce

:05:59.:06:08.

twice before it disappeared. Slightly errant shot. One at the

:06:09.:06:15.

8th. Just a few signs, an inkling all is not quite right with cucumber

:06:16.:06:16.

gone. -- Jutanugarn. Can see Telus of Alice doing a

:06:17.:06:43.

promotional video- Milton Keynes, my kind of town?

:06:44.:06:47.

I have been staying in Milton Keynes and I have enjoyed it. What a lovely

:06:48.:06:58.

place. There is the situation. Ariya Jutanugarn will be going to Rio in a

:06:59.:07:04.

couple of weeks. 41 out of the 60 in the field, who will be competing in

:07:05.:07:09.

Rio where here this week at Welburn. Incidentally, Andrew will appreciate

:07:10.:07:15.

this, if Jutanugarn were to win the Gold Medal, she would be the first

:07:16.:07:20.

female Olympic champion for Thailand since 2008. The last one was a

:07:21.:07:34.

weightlifter, and you will remember, Andrew because you are commentating?

:07:35.:07:46.

Yes, it was tricky, her name. It was phonetically spelled-out. Catriona

:07:47.:08:10.

Matthew, now. Very good. Does nobody remember the promotional videos for

:08:11.:08:11.

Birmingham. Leona Maguire, Lisa just shaking her

:08:12.:08:20.

head at her. Nothing to do with me, that putt. Mo Martin, second place

:08:21.:08:26.

at the moment. Can she put the squeeze on even more? Needs to keep

:08:27.:08:37.

going. That was wonderfully judged. Look at it. I think that's the hole

:08:38.:08:43.

location that Stacy Lewis was talking about. It is obviously on a

:08:44.:08:49.

pretty severe slope. Doesn't look like it there but Catriona Matthew's

:08:50.:08:57.

ball ran on and Mo Martin's ball didn't look like it was going to get

:08:58.:09:04.

there. There is an extra pace or so in the greens now that we didn't see

:09:05.:09:08.

earlier in the week. The greens are so segmented, you can have some

:09:09.:09:11.

really, really testing flag positions. Looking at the 10th hole,

:09:12.:09:18.

which in distance, isn't huge. 344 yards. But certainly averaging over

:09:19.:09:28.

par. Lots of bogeys. Par putt here for Catriona Matthew.

:09:29.:09:43.

That was very well done. That took some nerve. If these players are not

:09:44.:09:50.

to catch the leader, all these shots now, as they vie for a high finish,

:09:51.:09:59.

worth a great deal of money. Graham was talking about it there, Catriona

:10:00.:10:06.

Matthew's Husband saying how quickly the ball went away as it went past

:10:07.:10:15.

the hole. Mo Martin, has looked like it was going to come up short, but

:10:16.:10:18.

kept on going. The Caddy is discussing that flag as

:10:19.:10:37.

well as they left the green. There we can see Jutanugarn, first missed

:10:38.:10:41.

fairway in some considerable time. You have plenty of space up there.

:10:42.:11:02.

The left edge of the tower. Commit to it. 149 yards. Fortunately she

:11:03.:11:13.

has gone far enough in the bunker to be flat. Shouldn't be anything but a

:11:14.:11:29.

lovely lie. From one patch of sand to another. But it all depends on

:11:30.:11:36.

the lie. If it is clean, it shouldn't be too much problem to

:11:37.:11:44.

her. Little wind just puffing up into the face. 132 the Mirim Lee.

:11:45.:11:57.

Wonderful golf shot by Mirim Lee. Searching for her first birdie of

:11:58.:12:02.

the afternoon. Mo Martin, the par-5. This approach

:12:03.:12:29.

has worked by her, birdieing it a couple of times so far. Get a good

:12:30.:12:36.

look at this. APPLAUSE

:12:37.:12:45.

She knows it is a full three shots. Played it as such.

:12:46.:13:20.

APPLAUSE Straight over the bunker 's Catriona

:13:21.:13:24.

Matthew. Then get a big shoot forward. It is a big, big drive. She

:13:25.:13:31.

is not known for that, but it is well within striking distance. She

:13:32.:13:41.

can be sneaky long. She doesn't look like a player who can hit it too

:13:42.:13:45.

far, until you start walking out of it. -- after it. The good view of

:13:46.:13:53.

what is facing Stacy Lewis. Normally dynamite with these wedges. Just a

:13:54.:14:01.

little upslope to the flag. That was a better shot than the result has

:14:02.:14:11.

indicated. The ability to whip the club under the ball to get them to

:14:12.:14:15.

stop a little quicker, if you wanted them to.

:14:16.:14:19.

APPLAUSE Lovely shot. Great shot from

:14:20.:14:25.

Jutanugarn. Big shot, trying to avoid back-to-back bogeys and will

:14:26.:14:30.

do with that escape. Hasn't played the hole well, or hadn't until this

:14:31.:14:36.

shot. Was lying nicely, fairly straightforward, but still had to be

:14:37.:14:43.

done. The board just exploded in a cushion of sand. -- the ball.

:14:44.:14:50.

Particularly with such a tricky green.

:14:51.:15:02.

We can have a look at this flag, I can see why it is difficult. A

:15:03.:15:10.

little ridge that runs where the flag is cut. Stacy Lewis was

:15:11.:15:20.

expressing her displeasure. That was after a massive horseshoe, so you

:15:21.:15:24.

would feel that way. But from the side, it can run a long way past the

:15:25.:15:29.

hole. Mirim Lee is close enough, but it is tricky. Just enough movement

:15:30.:15:39.

from the left, you have two guide it in.

:15:40.:15:51.

Little singer of the knees with relief as it drops. Mirim Lee, picks

:15:52.:16:02.

one up. First birdie of the day. Five behind her playing partner. And

:16:03.:16:09.

you might have seen from the graphic, Helen has joined us again.

:16:10.:16:15.

Is ready to give us some expertise. Yes, try to. Here is this American

:16:16.:16:24.

group, trying to push each other along. Lexi Thompson has stalled

:16:25.:16:32.

with a couple of drop shots. You would think that Stacy Lewis was

:16:33.:16:39.

getting her game in decent shape. We have seen some big shaving of the

:16:40.:16:48.

holes, she hasn't got a lot of putts going her way. Looking a little

:16:49.:16:59.

grumpy. Nothing new. Frustration for her. Looking to get something going,

:17:00.:17:07.

hoping Jutanugarn will come back slightly. One dropped shot on the

:17:08.:17:13.

night. Sometimes the frustrating thing is, when you feel you are

:17:14.:17:17.

striking the ball better, the putting is better but the numbers

:17:18.:17:22.

don't show it. 1-under par, Lydia Ko. 74 the her. Frustrating for the

:17:23.:17:35.

world number one. Stacy Lewis, then. None of them is giving Jutanugarn a

:17:36.:17:45.

run for her money. Not putting any pressure on her. Karrie Webb, second

:17:46.:18:04.

to the 12th is par for, into a semi island. If you can have a semi

:18:05.:18:10.

island. Then poke it to the back like that. Beautiful shot from

:18:11.:18:16.

Karrie Webb. One of the best ball strikers I have ever seen in this

:18:17.:18:22.

game, during my time. Lexi Thompson, just to finish off for a part here.

:18:23.:18:30.

-- par. You would think this golf course would suit her very nicely

:18:31.:18:35.

with the way she hits her shots. Be able to get to these pins. Catriona

:18:36.:18:47.

Matthew, 280 yards. Got a huge amount of run. That is possibly 242.

:18:48.:18:54.

Possibly with the shape, get this one home. It started out right. If

:18:55.:19:09.

she can get a good bounce. Would be great if she could get a few birdies

:19:10.:19:14.

here and on the back nine. This is where the tournament starts. Started

:19:15.:19:19.

off so well, Catriona Matthew, two birdies in the first four holes.

:19:20.:19:28.

Then tailed off since. Karrie Webb, she was in pretty close as well.

:19:29.:19:37.

Ha-Na Jang is already in. Karrie Webb for a birdie. That ends that

:19:38.:19:56.

Faldo looking run of pars. We are talking Thailand weightlifters. Are

:19:57.:20:04.

you changing sport here? Absolutely. Mirim Lee on the tracer. Maybe

:20:05.:20:14.

straight over the bunkers, Ken? It is virtually straight into them of

:20:15.:20:24.

the left. She got a hold of that one. The frustration, maybe it could

:20:25.:20:32.

turn into a little bit of anger. One of the few times, a club with the

:20:33.:20:41.

head cover. It is best where she uses an iron. Going down the left,

:20:42.:20:51.

it is not the widest angle, the trees do hangover. She gives the

:20:52.:21:01.

impression she has come off a little bit. It is down the middle, slightly

:21:02.:21:13.

low in the face strike. Safe enough. I think for hitting it so long and

:21:14.:21:18.

with so much power, she is very straight. Granted, she's not using

:21:19.:21:25.

her driver, but he is Mo Martin, going extremely nicely. She just

:21:26.:21:39.

took a 3-wood, Mo Martin. She knows she can't get there in two. Play

:21:40.:21:45.

your way down to the hole and hopefully find a putt. Stacy Lewis

:21:46.:21:58.

on the 12th. Just clearing the water. The pin is nicely on the left

:21:59.:22:07.

side. More accessible as we just saw Karrie Webb hit a very nice shot.

:22:08.:22:20.

Studio-macro reminder of the situation. It is Ariya Jutanugarn,

:22:21.:22:28.

leading this with a four shot advantage. When you think of all the

:22:29.:22:37.

golfers from Thailand before her. The men's golf Majors have carried

:22:38.:22:43.

their hopes, but nobody has managed to land one of these big events in

:22:44.:22:48.

goal. Kvist 20-year-old from Bangkok be the person to do it for her

:22:49.:22:56.

country? Wonderful views we are having from the aeroplane circling

:22:57.:23:03.

above will burn. Catriona Matthew and the par-5. Up and down for a

:23:04.:23:13.

birdie. She would love to have a birdie. Little short. She thought it

:23:14.:23:22.

was going to run off a little bit more. But it has stalled. The greens

:23:23.:23:31.

have dried up quite a bit. Find it very interesting. The top players,

:23:32.:23:42.

one is the longest and one is the shortest. There is no right way to

:23:43.:23:49.

play this game. We were saying earlier, it is an entirely different

:23:50.:23:52.

course Mo Martin is having to play, coming from a lot further back.

:23:53.:23:59.

Deadly accurate. Although putting earlier, she missed that very, very

:24:00.:24:06.

sure putt. It was on the 5th hole. Her putting has not felt as

:24:07.:24:13.

comfortable. She is stabbing it a little bit. But who is to say that

:24:14.:24:20.

when she is lying second in the British Open here. Obviously she is

:24:21.:24:27.

doing something very right. She looks very comfortable in the longer

:24:28.:24:38.

putts. Has wonderful pace. She looks more comfortable today than she did

:24:39.:24:42.

yesterday. She was a bit edgy and hitting shots that were not like

:24:43.:24:47.

her. But today she has really been like a laser.

:24:48.:25:07.

Just need to get it there. Little bit of a misread. Great distance.

:25:08.:25:38.

It wasn't the tidiest tee shot from Stacy Lewis, but can almost get away

:25:39.:25:46.

with it with the pin back left. Muttering away there. That was a

:25:47.:25:52.

very nice shot. She couldn't have hit it any better. It is a tough

:25:53.:25:58.

shot into this rough that has now dried off and it is easy to get a

:25:59.:26:07.

flyer. The 12th hole at the top of your picture. Just beside it,

:26:08.:26:16.

Catriona Matthew. That was a misread and Miss/ as well. Something went

:26:17.:26:20.

entirely wrong. Not going to happen for Catriona Matthew today. She has

:26:21.:26:34.

been aiming a little bit to far right and trying to pull it back in.

:26:35.:26:46.

Karrie Webb who has broken her endless run of pars with a birdie on

:26:47.:26:58.

the 12th. Such a tidy looking swing. Has been thrown off course. That is

:26:59.:27:05.

a little bit strange from her. Quite short, even though she knows it is

:27:06.:27:10.

very bouncy. She needed a few more yards. Otherwise from Matt Green it

:27:11.:27:15.

will bounce left on her, leaving her with a very tough putt. This has

:27:16.:27:24.

caused a little bit of a problem for Mo Martin, earlier today. Let's hope

:27:25.:27:38.

she is all over that. She got it in. Still lying second on 13-under. Four

:27:39.:27:46.

shots off the lead. Off they go to the short par 12. Wander through the

:27:47.:27:51.

trees. Waiting for another slip from

:27:52.:28:08.

Jutanugarn. Mo Martin, her closest pursuer. Mirim Lee, let's fly. But

:28:09.:28:23.

where is it of two. Very tricky chip, up over the bunker. Not the

:28:24.:28:33.

ideal place. Jutanugarn, little bit short, but good position. Look at

:28:34.:28:46.

this swing for us, Helen. Great extension. Very nice, follow the

:28:47.:28:57.

path. Her big problem sometimes is that she gets a little quick with

:28:58.:29:03.

the hips. Coming off a little bit, hanging back. And then getting the

:29:04.:29:08.

arms around her body. Her left arm stays straight. When she hits good

:29:09.:29:16.

shots, she tends to get her left arm closer to her body. It is the shot

:29:17.:29:26.

we see every time she is missing. Ken Brown's hat just floating out of

:29:27.:29:33.

shot. He made it himself. Then that is very impressive. Mo Martin.

:29:34.:29:48.

Telling it to sit. She is getting a little bit to the right. Compared

:29:49.:29:56.

with previous days. That would have been the toughest light, but now the

:29:57.:30:07.

pin is left. That semi island is firm and fast, that would be very

:30:08.:30:12.

tricky. Low running shots. You can almost run out of ground. She has to

:30:13.:30:19.

be concerned over the first water. That is the problem when you are not

:30:20.:30:30.

as long. Catriona Matthew, 3-wood. This really came of that one. One of

:30:31.:30:36.

those shots she gets sometimes. We seen it a couple of times yesterday.

:30:37.:30:41.

A little bit lucky. Always nice when you can see it.

:30:42.:30:49.

Up ahead on the green, Stacy Lewis. She was down the right-hand side,

:30:50.:31:02.

beautiful shot to hear. Another one. You can also hear her frustration.

:31:03.:31:08.

Giving herself so a lot of chances but not being able to capitalise on

:31:09.:31:10.

them. Europe to take a chance to get it

:31:11.:31:42.

close. Very nicely played. As good as I

:31:43.:32:03.

could imagine someone could hit it, you have to get it over the green,

:32:04.:32:08.

over the bunker and then stop it quickly. Very nicely done. Could not

:32:09.:32:16.

have laid this up in a better spot. She went with the 3-wood. She knew

:32:17.:32:23.

she could reach. Interesting little chip she has got, little ballet to

:32:24.:32:28.

go through, it will turn quite hard to the right. -- little valley.

:32:29.:32:35.

Always looks like she stands quite a long way from the ball for these

:32:36.:32:45.

little chips. It sounded a little thin, Ken. But still left herself a

:32:46.:32:51.

pretty nice birdie opportunity there.

:32:52.:32:59.

Karrie Webb, long putt. Outside chance of birdie. Outside chance or

:33:00.:33:17.

not, it drops, Karrie Webb with back-to-back threes, back-to-back

:33:18.:33:28.

birdies, moves to 10-under. That is why you can never give up in this

:33:29.:33:32.

game, you never know when they are going to show up. Nice long putt,

:33:33.:33:38.

chippe in, a bunker shot, get the throttle on.

:33:39.:34:00.

I think she's quite desperate to make something happen. Here on the

:34:01.:34:11.

back nine. Just to get a little bit of confidence back. Would be very

:34:12.:34:16.

nice if she could make this. Got a bit of movement from the right-hand

:34:17.:34:21.

side, not many easy pin positions. Not easy to make birdies coming in

:34:22.:34:26.

without very high-quality iron shots.

:34:27.:34:38.

There we are. Back-to-back birdies for Mirim Lee. And for the moment,

:34:39.:34:48.

and might just be a moment, within four of her playing partner. That's

:34:49.:34:56.

a virtual look down on the 12th, Catriona Matthew just getting away

:34:57.:35:00.

with the loose tee shot. Mo Martin with a perfectly up.

:35:01.:35:21.

Heart would have been in her mouth, very good now. Really flirted with

:35:22.:35:31.

the water, didn't know exactly how far it was over that. Got away with

:35:32.:35:39.

it. Deep breath for Jutanugam. The smile and off you go.

:35:40.:35:51.

That's an opportunity missed. Mirim Lee gets one closer. She and Mo

:35:52.:36:05.

Martin within four. And a par-5 with her distance, it will feel like half

:36:06.:36:14.

shot gone. A four shot lead over seven holes is not enormous. It is

:36:15.:36:22.

two bogeys and two birdies, it sounds a lot, but with the way Ariya

:36:23.:36:29.

plays it is maybe a lot but a couple of mistakes and somebody makes

:36:30.:36:36.

birdie, I never felt it was enough. When you are looking for your first

:36:37.:36:41.

major as well, the heart will be fluttering now. Can Mo Martin could

:36:42.:36:51.

even more pressure on? Just a little jab, it was a nice jab. Didn't look

:36:52.:36:59.

too pretty, 52 yards, I think she would get up and down one out of

:37:00.:37:05.

three times. Karrie Webb on her many birdie run.

:37:06.:37:12.

I think this hole is very intimidating. Splendid iron play,

:37:13.:37:25.

putting it in the perfect spot. She will still be believing she is

:37:26.:37:30.

within second spot and you never know what's going to happen to the

:37:31.:37:37.

leader. Stacy Lewis on that mark as well. We have seen that in history,

:37:38.:37:39.

it is not over until it is over. We saw Karrie Webb also coming up a

:37:40.:37:56.

little short. I think they need to be over that first part otherwise

:37:57.:38:01.

it's going to kick dead left. It's going to end up being short, it's a

:38:02.:38:07.

tough pin to get close to. Some good runs, not only made

:38:08.:38:26.

anything here on the back. Hasn't made anything on the back. Mirim

:38:27.:38:37.

Lee. Trying to find the ideal position back on the 12th tee.

:38:38.:38:50.

Very nice layup, should give her a nice shot into the pin. The fairway

:38:51.:39:04.

runs out at 260 yards. Big moment here for Mo Martin.

:39:05.:39:17.

Not the greatest effort. Would have been nice to make that. Able to put

:39:18.:39:26.

a little bit of pressure. Not far over the water but I suppose

:39:27.:39:55.

that for her will be something like perhaps a four iron, 5-iron? STUDIO:

:39:56.:40:06.

There has been some movement behind Jutanugam this afternoon, Mirim Lee

:40:07.:40:09.

with back-to-back birdies at ten and 11, Karrie Webb up there as well at

:40:10.:40:15.

12 and 13. Recent history in the women's Majors suggest there are

:40:16.:40:18.

still some questions to answer for Jutanugam, she was two shots in

:40:19.:40:23.

front with three to play in the first of the years Majors and had an

:40:24.:40:28.

Adam Scott moment if you remember that, bogey on the last three holes.

:40:29.:40:35.

Since then she has won three events back-to-back in May when she held

:40:36.:40:39.

the 54 hole lead so she has proven her medal in that regard but funny

:40:40.:40:44.

things can happen in last few holes as I'm sure you know. Charley Hull,

:40:45.:40:53.

she had a fighting finish until coming unstuck with a double bogey

:40:54.:40:57.

in the home stretch. But the good finish for the local girl. Mo Martin

:40:58.:41:03.

knows how to win this. COMMENTATOR: Outwith the driver.

:41:04.:41:47.

Matthew. Sweeps it away. There you see how tightly Martin took it down

:41:48.:41:59.

the left-hand side to find the fairway. Matthew just slipping into

:42:00.:42:08.

the rough. As we have seen it's a very tough hole to get to the pin

:42:09.:42:15.

today. Here is number 12. The pin is quite nice today.

:42:16.:42:28.

Just heard her caddy seeing the pin is on 79, two or three yards to the

:42:29.:42:37.

right is the spot. Plenty of landing area, the most accessible pin on the

:42:38.:42:39.

green. 79 yards is good yardage. Pretty much what she would have

:42:40.:42:55.

expected there, looking to get within 15 feet from that distance.

:42:56.:43:03.

She got a lot of help from her caddy, he is very on the ball,

:43:04.:43:08.

reminding her to stay focused. I think sometimes we forget that.

:43:09.:43:20.

Slightly higher flight, this looks rather nice. It certainly is. The

:43:21.:43:31.

pressure might come from playing partner, Mirim Lee in close,

:43:32.:43:35.

Jutanugam will feel the need to roll hers in. Just that one to pop in to

:43:36.:43:44.

make it three in a row from Mirim Lee and after a front nine which was

:43:45.:43:48.

an impressive she is getting it going. Stacy Lewis.

:43:49.:43:57.

It is surely not her day, she has been very, very close. Thank you to

:43:58.:44:09.

Helen, former winner here at Woburn who is off, but thank you for your

:44:10.:44:12.

wise words over the four days. Karrie Webb. She thought she had

:44:13.:44:17.

another one, I think we all did. Second to the final hole for So Yeon

:44:18.:44:29.

Ryu. Back to the lily pond and the

:44:30.:45:05.

prettiness of the 12. Up we go, two lovely second shots into this very

:45:06.:45:10.

attractive green. Bit of putting to be done. This one a little bone

:45:11.:45:17.

Hill, a bit of movement from the right. I think this is a big putt --

:45:18.:45:24.

downhill. Mirim Lee, when she gets a bit of a run going is not frightened

:45:25.:45:28.

to make four or five birdies in a row. We were reminded that she was

:45:29.:45:39.

ahead with only handful of hole 's left to play. This would not be the

:45:40.:45:49.

end of the world, but it would be a good way to settle her nerves if she

:45:50.:45:54.

could get this in. Four strokes ahead, everyone thinks you're going

:45:55.:45:56.

to win but you don't. No, that was a bit twitchy. Don't

:45:57.:46:06.

tell me they are human? Four, that's all right. Still a

:46:07.:46:30.

little putting to do for the other one. Suddenly a little bit more

:46:31.:46:36.

serious. Our well, not for long. This isn't so far is it? Beautiful

:46:37.:46:53.

shot into this green. It's going to be a little tap in 43. -- for free.

:46:54.:47:12.

So the gap narrows. It was eight to shot gap at the beginning of the day

:47:13.:47:16.

but now only three. It was six at one stage. -- it was a two shot gap.

:47:17.:47:30.

Short walk through the woods. There you have it. Trees on the corner.

:47:31.:47:37.

Martin and Matthew, Matthew missing the fairway again, has not been

:47:38.:47:41.

quite as accurate from the tee as she is on most occasions. Just a

:47:42.:47:50.

little bit awkward. Stance and lie. She likes it. If it sits, it didn't.

:47:51.:48:02.

Galloping away. Good indication of how segmented these greens are, if

:48:03.:48:07.

you get it in the right portion you can have very reasonable birdie

:48:08.:48:11.

opportunities. But easy to be taken away into 3-part range as we go to

:48:12.:48:20.

14 and look at Stacy Lewis -- 3-putt range.

:48:21.:48:33.

She will have our work cut out there to get down in two. She knows it.

:48:34.:48:48.

Martin, second to the 13th. Looks simple enough doesn't it? Straight

:48:49.:48:54.

at the flag, good, clean, straight hit. Up, up she cries. Drifting

:48:55.:49:03.

away. Not bad. Quite the slope from right-to-left when you come into

:49:04.:49:05.

this green. So Yeon Ryu has reached the 18th.

:49:06.:49:26.

Former US Open champion. In fact that was her first win on the LPGA.

:49:27.:49:32.

Another player to make her first big victory very victory. -- her first

:49:33.:49:47.

big victory a very big victory. Quite a roly-poly green, slow, long

:49:48.:49:58.

curves on this 18th green. Needs to turn quickly. Doing its best. Pretty

:49:59.:50:06.

good effort from such long-range. Let it go, crying for it to set.

:50:07.:50:31.

Crash bang wallop what the picture. It's in the roots and the bits of

:50:32.:50:39.

twigs and all sorts of stuff. She doesn't realise she's got away with

:50:40.:50:45.

it, how much I don't know. Huge birdie attempt here from Matthew on

:50:46.:50:46.

13. She gave that right box. Done very

:50:47.:51:04.

well indeed, very well judged. She has displayed a silky touch this

:51:05.:51:13.

week. Are a leader at the 13th with the favourite driving iron of

:51:14.:51:19.

horrors. Blimey, she had that. There is no need to get cross, it's only a

:51:20.:51:25.

game! We've all had a drink! Lucky, Lucky, Lucky, lucky. She has a three

:51:26.:51:34.

shot lead but what we are watching is a player who is learning to cope

:51:35.:51:39.

with the most severe pressure. She is new into her career, although won

:51:40.:51:44.

this year for the first time and let a couple slip. We are watching the

:51:45.:51:50.

morning of her mental skills here. -- the

:51:51.:51:55.

He's got the basics but the rest is knackered. CHUCKLES

:51:56.:52:26.

I think he's just testing if she will have room for a swing. So Yeon

:52:27.:52:34.

Ryu, finishing off with 70. She always looks in a hurry, bustling

:52:35.:52:40.

and busy, she goes, got a bus to catch. Love to talk but I've got to

:52:41.:52:47.

go. Matthew after that very good effort from such long-range. Testing

:52:48.:52:59.

one for par. We'll still see plenty of drama over the spinal have a

:53:00.:53:07.

dozen or so holes. -- over these final half a dozen or so holes.

:53:08.:53:15.

That's not the sort of drama the locals want to see. The same thing

:53:16.:53:20.

happened yesterday, going along beautifully until she got to about

:53:21.:53:26.

12, 13, 14, dropped two or three shots. Similar pattern today.

:53:27.:53:43.

Stacy Lewis has left yourself a bit of a conundrum, eyeing this up down

:53:44.:54:13.

the left-hand lane, the green should sweep the ball from left to right.

:54:14.:54:17.

Just have to make the crest of the hill. Didn't pitch it quite far

:54:18.:54:22.

enough. Didn't keep it enough left. Marten finishing off, to stay at

:54:23.:54:38.

13-under and four behind. One left, one right. The leader may

:54:39.:55:17.

be hampered by that big tree. She is just all right, just, she's got a

:55:18.:55:21.

swing, but a little tree in front of her that will make this very

:55:22.:55:22.

awkward. That looks all right. She has to

:55:23.:55:42.

launch it to the right of the tree, right of the green and if it stays

:55:43.:55:49.

right... Maybe she will go underneath it? That'll be the thing

:55:50.:55:54.

to do, punch it down, keep it eight foot off the ground, no more, let it

:55:55.:55:58.

run 40, 50 yards, like that, that could be good. Little scuttle to the

:55:59.:56:05.

back of the green. Steady, it is racing on. Over the back she goes.

:56:06.:56:17.

It's a steep bank, not much grass on it. You tend to hit those too hard.

:56:18.:56:25.

Mirim Lee has been lucky with position but it's sitting on a

:56:26.:56:29.

stick. When she's coming into the ball she will hit the step before

:56:30.:56:34.

she hit the ball. We might get a deflection here, might. This is

:56:35.:56:42.

tough, not sure what contact you're going to get. Where the flag is,

:56:43.:56:49.

very awkward. Yes, good view of it now. It's almost running with her,

:56:50.:56:54.

if you are a bit unlucky this good squirt over the body on the right

:56:55.:57:01.

somewhere. Needs a bit of luck, bit of hit and hope here. Long chip and

:57:02.:57:17.

run. That is a more gentle pace. Maybe an escape is looming. This

:57:18.:57:26.

would be a spectacular up and down for Lewis to get this one home. No.

:57:27.:57:32.

She knew the minute she hit it. Shot gone. Karrie Webb at the 15th.

:57:33.:57:45.

10-under. Only had a couple of birdies, the rest pars. Umpteen

:57:46.:57:55.

putts just scraping the edge of the hole. What a good player she has

:57:56.:58:04.

been, 20 odd years. Looks like the 5-wood for Mo Martin.

:58:05.:58:13.

Down the 15th, coming back, the long par-5. Catriona Matthew, nothing

:58:14.:58:52.

really happened, got away to a good start again, a few of them have done

:58:53.:58:59.

that. More difficult day to day, a couple of scores. A lot of 71s.

:59:00.:59:22.

Very good from Catriona, using the big bank on the left-hand side, so

:59:23.:59:29.

many of the players have been coming up short on this hole all week. A

:59:30.:59:39.

bit of a long chip, or will she pitch it? Or will she go between? I

:59:40.:59:48.

think a bit between. Steady, steady, steady. You lucky girl. By such

:59:49.:59:56.

happenings fortunes can change. That was gone.

:59:57.:00:03.

What I turn up for the book that was. You should be ashamed, hang

:00:04.:00:14.

your head young lady. Move away and pretend not to smirk.

:00:15.:00:27.

A body blow for your opponents who is facing less. -- this. It's

:00:28.:00:38.

odds-on she loses one here. Decent lie. Oh my goodness. No! Kenneth, I

:00:39.:00:50.

cannot bear to watch. It is very fast were she has left it. Tricky

:00:51.:01:00.

Dicky. This is the moment, very good point made about the mental side of

:01:01.:01:05.

it, now her brains the moment, not quite scrambled eggs but she hits

:01:06.:01:11.

this, all my good god she is thinking, squirts off the clubhead,

:01:12.:01:18.

racist past the flag -- races past the flag. Thinking of her opponent

:01:19.:01:22.

hitting the flag and how lucky she was. Taking the glove off. Try to

:01:23.:01:32.

keep calm. This is the stay in the moment, she needs to stay in the

:01:33.:01:36.

moment whilst her opponents are trying to batter the door down and

:01:37.:01:45.

get close to her. That just moved away at the last second. She has had

:01:46.:01:51.

opting of those today. Still a very fine player. -- umpteen of those.

:01:52.:02:01.

Not quite Martina Navratilova, but she still plays good tennis. I

:02:02.:02:13.

watched her at Wimbledon playing the doubles. Interesting technique. That

:02:14.:02:26.

is fast. Look at that go. Look at it go! Another two feet and it was 40

:02:27.:02:37.

feet away. This is where the caddy comes into play. He cannot do much,

:02:38.:02:42.

can only quietly encourage. Meanwhile... I can report, Peter,

:02:43.:02:59.

the caddy, Peter is from Slough. Nearly a south London boy. How long

:03:00.:03:04.

has he been with her? I will have to ask him. If you are going to be a

:03:05.:03:10.

detective, you will have to sniff about. I would leave it for five

:03:11.:03:18.

minutes, Kenneth. No, now is a perfect time. He can see his bonus

:03:19.:03:30.

getting less, and less. I don't want you to miss any more. Pop this one

:03:31.:03:37.

in. Bit of a crunch time now for Jutanugarn. As quick as it was from

:03:38.:03:47.

one side, this is slow. It is easy to see there is a bit of left to

:03:48.:03:51.

right. Going to have to keep the pace on the ball.

:03:52.:04:02.

I thought she had got it for a moment.

:04:03.:04:31.

She needs this to maintain her lead. You get a bit lost for words. It is

:04:32.:04:40.

all very well trying to be informative and jolly, whatever, but

:04:41.:04:44.

this is like missing penalties are letting a ball go in, dropping a

:04:45.:04:50.

catch, whatever sport. You have got it in the palm of your hand,

:04:51.:04:56.

victory. You can feel it slipping away. That was ugly. That was ugly.

:04:57.:05:14.

And then the lead was one. Just a handful of holes left. Have been

:05:15.:05:27.

four or five people in the equation. Karrie Webb, she has holed a few

:05:28.:05:34.

putts. Mo Martin, she can get down in two, she is still with it. Up the

:05:35.:05:43.

hill. Very good. Well judged. Beautiful touch. She's got her

:05:44.:05:55.

three. She is in the game ahead. Karrie Webb, up on 16, unaware of

:05:56.:06:03.

the drama unfolding behind her. Short flag today. Only nine on.

:06:04.:06:14.

Just a little slight misjudgement again. Matthew at the 14th. Good tee

:06:15.:06:24.

shot. This is left to right. And pace. Pace is very important. That

:06:25.:06:32.

looks to be too straight. No, it is a beauty. Beautiful putt. That was a

:06:33.:06:36.

corker. There will be a few deep breaths

:06:37.:06:51.

being taken on this tee at the moment. 181, pin tucked away and it

:06:52.:07:07.

is impossible to get at it. 5-iron. Good swing. Good rhythm. Only way to

:07:08.:07:20.

play the hole. Middle of the green, it will dribble away to the right.

:07:21.:07:25.

Get near the hole. We saw Catriona Matthew's ball moved six or seven

:07:26.:07:31.

yards, closer to the flag. If you land it over the bunker, you've got

:07:32.:07:35.

the downslope. Needs to gather herself together. This is a big test

:07:36.:07:44.

for this young girl. Big, big, big test.

:07:45.:07:53.

Watch her. She doesn't mind it. That is a cracker. That is a settler.

:07:54.:08:11.

Absolute settler. Brilliant, brilliant shot after the happenings

:08:12.:08:19.

on the last hole. Impassive. Come on! I can do this.

:08:20.:08:26.

Ken is getting his information look. You've got another one of those

:08:27.:08:34.

hats. Oh good god. I had to Catriona Matthew. -- ahead.

:08:35.:08:44.

That looked like a very good swing. She looked like she put a bit more

:08:45.:08:53.

beef into that one? The scores are changing around the course. The

:08:54.:08:57.

other players who felt they had been getting nothing, no help from the

:08:58.:09:04.

leader had just had a little over the last few holes. Stacy Lewis, I

:09:05.:09:11.

don't know if she is in sand or just missed the bunker. In the sand.

:09:12.:09:15.

Nasty place to be, that is a mistake. Shouldn't be in there for

:09:16.:09:22.

two. An impossible third. Now activity. -- back to the tee.

:09:23.:09:34.

That's OK. Gentle nudge back to the centre of the fairway. She was

:09:35.:09:53.

18-under. She looked completely in control. But in the last few

:09:54.:09:58.

moments, it's all change. Ariya Jutanugarn with a lot of thinking to

:09:59.:10:02.

do and a lot of composure to regain. Although that was an elegant tee.

:10:03.:10:12.

Mirim Lee is in contention again. Lovely chip to the 13th green that

:10:13.:10:18.

just caressed the pin and stock. Mo Martin, also within striking

:10:19.:10:24.

distance and this last day has suddenly got very, very interesting.

:10:25.:10:38.

COMMENTATOR: There is the scene, the galleries marching round. It is all

:10:39.:10:51.

the holes marshalled by different golf clubs. This one is marshalled

:10:52.:10:59.

by my home club. They can abandon the team now, the last group are

:11:00.:11:05.

through. This is not easy. Uphill. Just where the caddy is, there is a

:11:06.:11:10.

cape that runs into the green. She has to go over that and down the

:11:11.:11:17.

other side. The line isn't easy to pick and pace is tricky. Over the

:11:18.:11:22.

top of the hill and then let it release out.

:11:23.:11:40.

Great effort. Almost as good as Mo Martin's was from a similar place a

:11:41.:12:00.

few moments ago. Stacey Webb. This day see! Karrie Webb, it is. Having

:12:01.:12:05.

a struggle up this 15th hole. It was a really classy tee shot of

:12:06.:12:31.

Jutanugarn's after the bogey. Big moment if this could go in. It would

:12:32.:12:37.

steady a lot of nerves. Not only has, but also her supporters'. Just

:12:38.:12:44.

on the left edge. It is a nice three. The other one's not in yet.

:12:45.:12:52.

It is a dangerous hole safely out of the way.

:12:53.:13:10.

This is where you find out if all the work you've done has paid off.

:13:11.:13:18.

Got to go through those setup routines you have worked on. Just go

:13:19.:13:27.

through them and trust your stroke. A clear head. You have done it.

:13:28.:13:32.

Smooth stroke, line it up. Don't twitch it. Good stroke. Another have

:13:33.:13:43.

entered the final few. Looking at the scoring system. Sarah Jane

:13:44.:13:54.

Smith, birdied two of the last three. Much can happen over the last

:13:55.:14:14.

few holes. Well holed from Lewis. Karrie Webb at the 17th. Last of the

:14:15.:14:16.

short holes. Bit angry with that, but it could be

:14:17.:14:32.

a lot worse. Mo Martin, just factoring in any

:14:33.:14:53.

adrenaline with her caddy. Little and large. Tiny tot and a big

:14:54.:15:06.

monster. Good team though. Terrific. Flight it and just sit it. It is

:15:07.:15:13.

perfect. Commit to the shot. Commit to the shot and all the other mumbo

:15:14.:15:15.

jumbo. Good swing. Good strike. She gets a

:15:16.:15:42.

bit of zip through the ball because it sits down very obligingly. She

:15:43.:15:47.

obviously likes our Championship. Those finishing shots she played at

:15:48.:16:00.

Birkdale, classic efforts. Mirim Lee, out with the driver. Not much

:16:01.:16:15.

run. Jutanugarn, cannot get out with the driver because she isn't

:16:16.:16:22.

carrying it. A bit down the fairway, I have taken a short cut, is it a

:16:23.:16:29.

3-wood? She is out with the 3-wood. She can reach, just about. But she

:16:30.:16:32.

brings the left-hand bunkers into play off the tee. Here she goes.

:16:33.:16:43.

Boom! Looks to be a little bit, a little bit off-line, yes but bounces

:16:44.:16:50.

up and onto the fairway. Not a bad side to be.

:16:51.:17:01.

Still got a smile. Catriona Matthew, pitcher. Good one, Maureen. Dig the

:17:02.:17:11.

toes in. In Gee Chun, another former winner

:17:12.:17:34.

of the US Open. She finishes on 8-under par.

:17:35.:17:44.

Karrie Webb. Not a great tee shot at the 17th. But that looks very gentle

:17:45.:18:00.

and very tidy, but speeds by. They do generate pace when they get to

:18:01.:18:02.

the hole on so many of these greens. Lovely view of the 15th green.

:18:03.:18:22.

Matthew and Martin would be patrolling it. And that's a long

:18:23.:18:30.

putt Matthew hold on 14 might just provide a bit of impetus for her. --

:18:31.:18:37.

holed. Gentle little tap. Keeping going...

:18:38.:19:17.

It won't reach. APPLAUSE

:19:18.:19:27.

This is Hannah Django. -- Hannah Django.

:19:28.:19:40.

That is looking very good. Similar to Matthew's. A dead online, shy.

:19:41.:19:51.

Hole in one at the par-4. Up to the 18th. The bunker. Leona Maguire, the

:19:52.:20:01.

amateur, in the bunker. Two shots dropped, doesn't want to drop

:20:02.:20:08.

another. Years ago, there was a player called John Hudson and had

:20:09.:20:14.

two consecutive holes in one. In the old martini tournament. Martin.

:20:15.:20:26.

It is a par on 15. Off they go to the 16th tee. Seven pars in a row.

:20:27.:20:49.

No fireworks. Just steady play. Good finish. It's been done already by

:20:50.:20:54.

three players who had a wonderful finish over these closing holes.

:20:55.:21:07.

Mirim Lee is having a crack. 291 yards to the flag. She is going with

:21:08.:21:13.

the wood to get a bit tighter. Which is fine today with the pin at the

:21:14.:21:22.

back of the green. Oh. Check and balance, that is OK. That was

:21:23.:21:27.

heading for the sand. I thought that was sand bound. Be awful to find one

:21:28.:21:33.

of those bunkers at 60, 70 yards back because they are deep.

:21:34.:21:41.

Jutanugarn can park it, 60, 70 yards. With the flag at the back,

:21:42.:21:42.

you have some landing area. Grand National winner there, jumping

:21:43.:22:02.

over the corner of the bunker. That is a very big stroke of luck. She is

:22:03.:22:16.

starting to look a little bit edgy. Karrie Webb to stay par.

:22:17.:22:25.

First drop shot of the David Karrie Webb, when she knocks this in. Leona

:22:26.:22:35.

Maguire on the final green. What a week she's had. This for a closing

:22:36.:22:46.

74. Well, not to be. She is a comfortable winner of the award

:22:47.:22:54.

given to the low amateur. We'll have to make a bit more space in her

:22:55.:22:59.

bulging trophy cabinet. She finishes at 4-under par and it is a very

:23:00.:23:06.

well-deserved round of applause. She will be cross with that finish, but

:23:07.:23:10.

when she gets a moment to reflect on it, it is a great finish. Dan Brown

:23:11.:23:17.

won the English amateur. Andrew Burgess of Royal Aberdeen. Big

:23:18.:23:22.

George Duncan in the final Anzac Gallagher won the Welsh amateur

:23:23.:23:26.

Championship. They all finish around the same time as the women's British

:23:27.:23:36.

Open. -- Zach Gallagher. There is the mark from Charley Hull. She got

:23:37.:23:41.

to 9-under par at one stage. When you think about where that is at

:23:42.:23:45.

9-under, it is a tie for fifth place. Many others will have such

:23:46.:23:47.

stories. Good, straight one from Catriona

:23:48.:23:59.

Matthew. This green is always a little firm.

:24:00.:24:36.

The wind is blocking it up. John, the caddy, giving the instructions.

:24:37.:24:44.

He has been on Mirim Lee's bagged a couple of months and he has helped

:24:45.:24:51.

turn her game around. Not easy to turn this around, I'd be a bit

:24:52.:24:55.

scared of going over the back. Control the flight.

:24:56.:25:04.

It grabs and even backs up a little bit. Over to you, says Mirim Lee, to

:25:05.:25:10.

her partner. Huge, huge break. She caught the

:25:11.:25:29.

3-wood a bit thin and it came up a bit lower than usual. Peter, heading

:25:30.:25:35.

up to the green to get the precise yardage. Not a bad spot. In the

:25:36.:25:42.

rough, sitting OK and the ball is below her feet but she doesn't have

:25:43.:25:47.

to come over the bunker. Maybe a little more time, but back he goes.

:25:48.:25:53.

Coming out the rough, Andrew, will eliminate the fact she has got too

:25:54.:26:00.

much spin on it. She can play a low shot, which she can release out.

:26:01.:26:05.

Mirim Lee, take some applause for her shot. 65 yards. Going to run a

:26:06.:26:24.

little right to left. If this was 45 yards, it would be a tricky shot

:26:25.:26:30.

from this position. But 65, you can open the club face and get a decent

:26:31.:26:32.

swing at it. Stacy Lewis. Hole hi, great distance

:26:33.:27:10.

control. And it looks beautifully read and executed putt. Results,

:27:11.:27:11.

Birdie. 10-under for Stacy Lewis. Stacy Lewis moving up to 10-under

:27:12.:27:29.

par. Five behind. Possibly a little bit too late but it is hotting up

:27:30.:27:34.

with a double bogey from Jutanugarn on the 13th. We find the names of

:27:35.:27:40.

Charley Hull, finished a long time ago. Had it going but stumbled on

:27:41.:27:45.

the back nine. And then Leona Maguire, going to win leading

:27:46.:27:50.

amateur. 75, a better placed earlier on. Slightly slow finish, but she

:27:51.:27:57.

should be very proud. She is talking now to Hazel Irvin.

:27:58.:28:02.

You have one at the Smith salver by six shots, I wonder in your already

:28:03.:28:09.

long list of achievements, where does this set? It is definitely up

:28:10.:28:13.

there, I have had a great week. I would have liked to have played

:28:14.:28:17.

better today, but the goal was to have fun and play as best as I

:28:18.:28:22.

could. How much fun has it been taking on these professionals in

:28:23.:28:25.

this major Championship and featuring so strongly on the

:28:26.:28:29.

leaderboard? It's been great, I've had a lot of fun, it has been great

:28:30.:28:35.

having Lisa on the bag. You and your twin have made quite the double act

:28:36.:28:38.

and we look forward to seeing you next year. Thanks a lot. At Duke

:28:39.:28:48.

University, North Carolina. Go back to Mirim Lee. Can she put the

:28:49.:28:50.

squeeze on? Not one of her finest putts. Just

:28:51.:29:08.

eases the pressure a little bit on Jutanugarn. Just the par-5 from

:29:09.:29:10.

Mirim Lee. Matthew, attacking this short flag

:29:11.:29:24.

on 16. A little light. Should have learned a little from

:29:25.:29:52.

her playing partner. It's uphill and it's pretty slow.

:29:53.:30:02.

No, no. That was to give her two shot lead with three holes to play.

:30:03.:30:11.

But it is still just one. She had a two shot lead with three to play.

:30:12.:30:17.

First major of the year. Let it slip. Can she hold on? One clear.

:30:18.:30:31.

Lewis and the rest of them have to go flag hunting. Running out of

:30:32.:30:32.

holes. Very good. That flag's not very far

:30:33.:30:57.

from yesterday's pin position. A few players behind her, going to have to

:30:58.:31:04.

take some chances if they want to threaten Jutanugarn at the top of

:31:05.:31:06.

the board. Head bowed, ball heading left, needs

:31:07.:32:12.

to get lucky, that's a long way in, all sorts of trouble down there.

:32:13.:32:22.

That is caused by the shot clubface she was talking about on the start

:32:23.:32:25.

of her takeaway. Just rearing its ugly head at the wrong time for her.

:32:26.:32:42.

Jutanugarn has hit two iron's. Cannot get out there about 250,

:32:43.:32:50.

comfortably. -- can knock it out there. After Mirim Lee finds trouble

:32:51.:33:00.

Jutanugarn pounds it down the middle. Mirim Lee just giving

:33:01.:33:10.

Jutanugarn a bit of breathing space but what can Mo Martin do? Just two

:33:11.:33:13.

off the lead to remember. Not a huge amount happened in her

:33:14.:33:56.

round until the back nine, a couple of birdies, then a dropped shot on

:33:57.:34:03.

the 17, a round of 71 for Karrie Webb. She will finish inside the top

:34:04.:34:08.

ten. Just not quite enough juice, the

:34:09.:34:32.

ball bobbled about as it left the blade which normally means it will

:34:33.:34:45.

come up a trifle short. If there is to be any chance at all for Stacy

:34:46.:34:52.

Lewis this one has to drop. Even then it's just the slenderest of

:34:53.:34:53.

hopes. Is it going to get there? No. Write

:34:54.:35:19.

online as well. Catriona. Well, that will irritate

:35:20.:35:49.

her no end. Down to a three horse race now I would say. Jutanugarn,

:35:50.:35:55.

Mirim Lee and Mo Martin. This 470. Mo Martin, big putt for par. Gets

:35:56.:36:28.

it. All pars on the back nine so far for Mo Martin. She is just hanging

:36:29.:36:33.

around hoping others will slipped back.

:36:34.:36:49.

In some brambles but we'll get to that. Pin six, seven yards,

:36:50.:37:10.

safely aboard the green. That could be quite a psychological blow if her

:37:11.:37:18.

opponent has found a really nasty spot in the bushes. It is

:37:19.:37:26.

unplayable, I think. This is long grass, brambles weaved into it, they

:37:27.:37:31.

are so tough, even the strongest of the strong. What do you think? If

:37:32.:37:43.

she takes a hit at this it's a big risk. That is the way they are

:37:44.:37:52.

talking, Ken. If she drops it two club links there are still trees in

:37:53.:37:55.

the way, she thinks she can squirt it out but oh my goodness. If it was

:37:56.:38:06.

Paul Casey with his four iron he might be able to thrash it out

:38:07.:38:12.

but... Coming away and taking some practice swings on some loose

:38:13.:38:16.

chippings isn't going to replicate it. It's a 9-iron they said. It's if

:38:17.:38:23.

the club shaft gets tangled up before she gets to it. All my

:38:24.:38:24.

goodness. This could be the end of her

:38:25.:38:32.

challenge. I am getting nervous, I don't know

:38:33.:38:51.

about you. She has done well to get it out. Settle down there. Through

:38:52.:38:55.

the fairway but that's done pretty well. She set up a pretty good angle

:38:56.:39:04.

for herself into the flag, it's over on the left. That was really, really

:39:05.:39:14.

well done. Well might she smile. If you look at the replay you can see

:39:15.:39:18.

Ken backing off a couple of paces before she hits it and you can

:39:19.:39:22.

understand why, has to be strong just to dig your way through, you

:39:23.:39:26.

don't know what it's going to do coming out of that, I think they had

:39:27.:39:30.

a good look at the brambles behind the ball and decided they were just

:39:31.:39:33.

about flimsy enough to rip the way through. Martin trying to get it

:39:34.:39:42.

onto this little iron in board of a ledge where the flag is today. --

:39:43.:39:44.

wiring bounce, she says and bounds it does.

:39:45.:39:57.

What a shot from Mo Martin. I haven't seen anybody closer than

:39:58.:40:07.

that all day. She might be the major threat to Jutanugarn. She thinks it

:40:08.:40:14.

comes from closer to her, from Mirim Lee, but Mirim Lee is just faltering

:40:15.:40:24.

year. -- here. She hasn't found the greatest lie, coming across the edge

:40:25.:40:31.

of the bunker, you would like to bits purchase on the ball but she

:40:32.:40:35.

would be able to do that, to get this close it's got to be absolutely

:40:36.:40:40.

perfect. Skirt the edge of the bunker and judge how much it's going

:40:41.:40:51.

to run out. That is just a shot, that is incredible, what a wonderful

:40:52.:40:57.

shot from Mirim Lee. Just crept over the trouble, may well save par and

:40:58.:41:05.

keep the pressure on. No matter where you look this is compelling

:41:06.:41:09.

stuff now, it seemed almost pedestrian at one point have another

:41:10.:41:21.

look at that she literally had a pocket handkerchief on which to

:41:22.:41:24.

bounce that golf ball and she did it.

:41:25.:41:52.

It's coming down to three players, the two in this group and Mo Martin

:41:53.:41:57.

up ahead. Jutanugarn certainly not being

:41:58.:42:16.

rushed, looking for her first major Championship, has come close this

:42:17.:42:25.

year, not only fourth in the ANA but third at the PGA will, women's PGA

:42:26.:42:26.

Championship as well. A reminder of the state of affairs,

:42:27.:42:49.

Mo Martin very close on the 17th. Birdie putt here, there is the

:42:50.:43:12.

smile. Then remembers the seriousness of it all.

:43:13.:43:22.

Dowling two from here would be good. Just wondered on a little bit again.

:43:23.:43:47.

Good aggressive putt. Matthew, the home crowd is delighted with that

:43:48.:44:01.

one. Level par for a two-day, a sprinkling of birdies and bogeys.

:44:02.:44:09.

Lexi Thompson has reached the final hole.

:44:10.:44:20.

Not too shabby. That is the four of the Championship, deep in the bushes

:44:21.:44:38.

off the tee, very risky second, delightful third and a finely

:44:39.:44:43.

executed putt. The scorecard doesn't paint a picture, but my goodness

:44:44.:44:52.

what a hole. Jutanugarn will have been watching all of that, seeing

:44:53.:44:56.

her troubles and thinking I could have gone one further clear and

:44:57.:45:01.

suddenly she has this one to retain the lead. This is one to test the

:45:02.:45:05.

nerves. Go through the smile again. Well done, very well holed. Both of

:45:06.:45:28.

them were nervous there but that's what's it all about, just a couple

:45:29.:45:35.

of holes left, all to play for. Can Mo Martin roll this in and move

:45:36.:45:50.

within one? By a fraction! That could have made a difference Andrew.

:45:51.:45:55.

Really could have made a difference. She has played terrific stuff I

:45:56.:46:04.

think. Go back to that very early putt that she missed from about a

:46:05.:46:12.

foot or so. Anyway, Stacy Lewis on the final hole.

:46:13.:46:24.

Good shot, good short indeed. That will give the Spectator something to

:46:25.:46:41.

cheer. Cracking shot wasn't it? The 17th, par-3, the

:46:42.:46:55.

final group. Gorgeous par-3, one that someone might paint. Circled by

:46:56.:47:07.

mature oaks. The pin on the back little ledge, a bit easier because

:47:08.:47:11.

it's a fraction further left but still tricky. Lots of

:47:12.:47:23.

decision-making, Ken. Looking at the sky to see if there is any breeze

:47:24.:47:28.

but down here it's nonexistent. The flag is not moving at all. Mo Martin

:47:29.:47:37.

has played the best tee shot so far, getting within about 12 feet. Very

:47:38.:47:50.

difficult to get it really tight. If you're going to try and fly it all

:47:51.:47:57.

the way you how to pitch it about a yard on the ledge. If you do that

:47:58.:48:03.

it's liable to dig in and come back to you. One shot.

:48:04.:48:17.

Sounded good, but left. Left an awkward putt.

:48:18.:48:37.

That has given some comfort to the leader because you can afford a

:48:38.:48:47.

breath, not carelessly but one nice clean shot, get inside her. She is

:48:48.:48:57.

capable of carrying it on the ledge, she's got enough power and clubhead

:48:58.:49:02.

speed to spin it. Perfect club for the distance. Make-up on the left

:49:03.:49:09.

shoulder, it shows how she swishes through the ball. The powder. That

:49:10.:49:19.

sounded nice, looks online. How about that? Steady. It dribbles

:49:20.:49:28.

away, but still a very good shot but still tricky part also. Not much

:49:29.:49:38.

easier than the other one. Lexi Thompson on the final green.

:49:39.:49:49.

Quite a bit of movement in that putting stroke. In for par, level

:49:50.:50:01.

par 72 for her round. That will be a tie for eighth.

:50:02.:50:20.

Mo cracks one of the 18th. I think she needs Birdie, Peter. Definitely

:50:21.:50:31.

but you have to admire her play, totally outgunned, it's like a

:50:32.:50:34.

middleweight taking on a heavyweight. She was also denied a

:50:35.:50:40.

high five by that child. Has time that even when challenging the

:50:41.:50:47.

major. Stacy Lewis, this was a superb second shot in. Round of 70,

:50:48.:50:58.

11-under total. She has for the moment set the total in the

:50:59.:51:05.

clubhouse. Finally a smile from Stacy Lewis, just not quite to be

:51:06.:51:11.

this week you suspect. Just a handful of players out on the course

:51:12.:51:18.

now. Can the finish as Caroline Masson dead with four birdies?

:51:19.:51:31.

They just happen, you cannot make them happen, you do your best and

:51:32.:51:36.

then the ball disappears and you have got a birdie or whatever. But

:51:37.:51:40.

you cannot make it happen. You do your best. Sometimes it works and

:51:41.:51:51.

sometimes it doesn't. But this has been a great four days. Back here

:51:52.:51:55.

again in four weeks, the European senior Tour. I recommend you come

:51:56.:52:04.

and have a look. Slightly different from this one. Monster putt, Ken. It

:52:05.:52:19.

is a monster, bed of a switchback putt as well. Just got gathered up

:52:20.:52:23.

on the slope and she is on the lower level, the hole cut almost a yard

:52:24.:52:28.

higher than she is so it's steep uphill. Probably the slowest putt

:52:29.:52:30.

she has had all day. Good speed. Cracking effort.

:52:31.:52:42.

First-class effort. Solid three. Recovered from that very shaky

:52:43.:53:16.

start. Mo Martin into the final green. Looking for birdie.

:53:17.:53:27.

Come on, come on, come on. She has a chance.

:53:28.:53:49.

This is quite a bit left-to-right. Speed important, if you are a bit

:53:50.:53:57.

too anxious you can knock this easily four feet past.

:53:58.:54:08.

Here she comes. How about that? What a moment to hole putt. I did my best

:54:09.:54:29.

and it went in. That might well be that. A lot can still happen but a

:54:30.:54:34.

two shot lead is a whole lot healthier than one to take to the

:54:35.:54:38.

final hole. Look at this, beautifully judged. Two feet outside

:54:39.:54:42.

the left, in, beautiful. Apart from the six at the 13th she

:54:43.:55:04.

has played very, very nice golf indeed. It will be the two iron at

:55:05.:55:18.

the last, it must be? Yes. Mirim Lee hoping for a two shot swing, we have

:55:19.:55:24.

seen plenty of those before. If it is at high they will go off and play

:55:25.:55:29.

a few holes sudden death, see who wins and takes all home the first

:55:30.:55:35.

prize of just over ?310,000. This price is ?90,000. -- fifth prize is

:55:36.:55:53.

?90,000. Really buzzing crowd trying to find position at the edge of this

:55:54.:56:04.

hole. I am trying to find a as well. Outwith the old blade. The old

:56:05.:56:09.

1-iron, up she goes. Don't see many of those these days. She has made

:56:10.:56:17.

this look easy all week, can she crunch another one down the middle?

:56:18.:56:25.

Tense moments. She hit it hard and I think she's got away with it.

:56:26.:56:51.

Little draughty, down the right. No run, safe enough.

:56:52.:57:29.

Mo Martin, this has to drop. To have any chance...

:57:30.:57:48.

The champion of two years ago at Birkdale, unless something

:57:49.:57:56.

miraculous happens to the spinal group, is not going to repeat the

:57:57.:58:02.

feat here at Woburn. She will be very proud and so she should be, she

:58:03.:58:05.

has played very well this week, Mo Martin. Been a very enjoyable time

:58:06.:58:15.

for everyone. The senior Tour here in four weeks' time. Some big boys

:58:16.:58:25.

will be here. Catriona Matthew. For a closing par. That's a shame. She

:58:26.:58:34.

knew it was poor, up and out of it underway.

:58:35.:58:41.

73 for Catriona Matthew. Still a great effort, tied for fifth will be

:58:42.:58:48.

the end result. A little touch anxious but what a

:58:49.:59:06.

good four days work. Excellent playing. Mo Martin, very good

:59:07.:59:18.

scoring indeed. Lovely playing. The final pair approached their tee

:59:19.:59:22.

shots. Jutanugarn has a two shot lead and

:59:23.:59:36.

she's OK. What sort of club do you think Ken?

:59:37.:00:03.

168, between an eight and 7-iron I think.

:00:04.:00:09.

She has to carry at 157. Over the little red chair in the green. Must

:00:10.:00:22.

be seven, be sure. Got to be. Maybe not. I will tell you any second.

:00:23.:00:44.

A 7-iron, Peter, you are wrong! Seven! Deep breath! One more nice,

:00:45.:00:57.

straight, beautifully timed shot. Right into the heart of the green,

:00:58.:00:59.

come on! That is a bit weak. There will be

:01:00.:01:06.

greater applause now. Cracking shot. The 100 club... That deserved

:01:07.:01:28.

better, under pressure, a very good shot. She said she would aim at the

:01:29.:01:35.

oh behind the flag like the caddy suggested and that is where she

:01:36.:01:46.

landed it. And she has got 164, Mirim Lee. We have seen them hold.

:01:47.:01:51.

The great photographer slipping past. The speed of a greyhound! This

:01:52.:02:02.

looks like a mix. As much as that? Really? A 6-iron! I am not sure.

:02:03.:02:22.

Sighs of relief. Whatever happens. Whatever happens, I think this young

:02:23.:02:28.

lady... Do not start counting the money yet, but I will have ?10 on

:02:29.:02:30.

her. And I am not a gambling man. Alistair Scott, our starter, former

:02:31.:02:50.

BBC, announcing them home. Nice little touches. APPLAUSE.

:02:51.:03:13.

Champagne in waiting. Can almost start to enjoy it now, that close

:03:14.:03:25.

with 80 macro shot lead. -- 82 shot lead.

:03:26.:03:30.

Mirim Lee has given her a good race. Just a little short. The lone figure

:03:31.:03:54.

of ten in front of the green! Totally oblivious to what is going

:03:55.:04:01.

on. -- Kenneth. No, it is not. He is on the ball now. No play-off, thank

:04:02.:04:11.

goodness, old friend! No play-off. At least, I don't think so,

:04:12.:04:15.

something weird would have to happen for there to be a play-off. I think

:04:16.:04:22.

again, potentially, this is a Serena Williams. She has the capability and

:04:23.:04:25.

power to completely dominate the game. Interesting. And at her young

:04:26.:04:35.

age, she appears to enjoy it. This will do her, if it ends in her

:04:36.:04:39.

favour, it will do a tremendous amount to boost her confidence. A

:04:40.:04:44.

couple of near misses but for a player so young, huge talent. Power,

:04:45.:04:53.

controlled touch. Mirim Lee has got the hole this, it is the most

:04:54.:04:58.

unlikely. Greece lightning, turning violently to the right as it slows

:04:59.:05:03.

down. If she does, her opponent has three more putts to still take the

:05:04.:05:09.

title. What a scene, Peter, beautiful. Lovely. That is maybe her

:05:10.:05:20.

mother standing at the back. Yes, her mother travels everywhere with

:05:21.:05:29.

her. You know all these things! Now, this is tricky. Along the top, over

:05:30.:05:34.

the ridge. Across the green, and is low. A good 17, 18 yards. Goodspeed,

:05:35.:05:48.

turning right. Good effort. And she has got the hole flat. Remember Mo

:05:49.:05:58.

Martin and 13-under. It of 17 -- 70, from her.

:05:59.:06:13.

I hope the caddy will get a good bonus, Peter! I think he will do.

:06:14.:06:23.

What a job he has done. Fantastic. They always say 10% for a win. If

:06:24.:06:29.

that is true... That is ?30,000. That is her mother. That is more

:06:30.:06:34.

than might old caddy, Liverpool sit, got. Mr alongside, Maria, alongside

:06:35.:06:44.

her mother. -- her sister alongside. She played well this week. But the

:06:45.:06:49.

younger sister has it all laid out before her.

:06:50.:07:06.

A little bit edgy! A little bit edgy. I think she will still have a

:07:07.:07:25.

couple more from there. I love it! The first time she has got cross

:07:26.:07:33.

with herself all week. Yes. This has got to go in. Otherwise, she will be

:07:34.:07:49.

tied with Kim. -- with Mo Martin. Oh! I don't like it, I don't like to

:07:50.:07:58.

see that. What a pity. Untidy beginning and an

:07:59.:08:15.

untidy end. A round of 73, 13-under, tied the second. Still her best

:08:16.:08:23.

finish at a Major, opening with that 60 to entertain everybody. It cost

:08:24.:08:32.

about ?25,000, ?30,000, that putt. Not like your Saturday morning roll

:08:33.:08:39.

up. You are all right, mum! She will be all right.

:08:40.:08:58.

Well done! The winner! And how well she has played. Here they come! Is

:08:59.:09:11.

that the real stuff? Is it water? Highland Spring, sparkling. Poor old

:09:12.:09:19.

mum and sister! DMA! The entire family. -- dear me. Very well

:09:20.:09:38.

played. A gallant opponent. Thank you, Slough.

:09:39.:09:47.

APPLAUSE. He done good.

:09:48.:09:56.

Away they go to the huts to check their cards and the prize-winning

:09:57.:09:59.

presentation. Study that card carefully into the

:10:00.:10:19.

corridors. A first Major title. In the end, it was a handsome victory.

:10:20.:10:25.

But it was very close on that back nine. At one stage in the final

:10:26.:10:31.

round, Jutanugarn had a 1-shot lead, ending with a three shot victory.

:10:32.:10:35.

With the double-bogey on the 13th, it was close. Mo Martin finishing

:10:36.:10:40.

tied for second place with Mirim Lee and the American who won this title

:10:41.:10:45.

at Birkdale, got short but very commendable effort.

:10:46.:10:51.

Talking to us now. What is it about the English air that makes you just

:10:52.:10:56.

love the British Open? I do love it. I have done a little bit of research

:10:57.:11:03.

into my past winnings and I have -- Mike Harris lineage and I have got

:11:04.:11:07.

English teams so maybe I have ancestors looking out at me and it

:11:08.:11:12.

has been nice. The weather has been great, the fans, they are great. I

:11:13.:11:15.

appreciate playing here, the fans are spectacular. He seems such an

:11:16.:11:20.

engaging personality so that is something to do with it. How did the

:11:21.:11:27.

course play today? -- you seem. Similar, a similar wind the entire

:11:28.:11:32.

week. They moved the tee boxes around a little bit, left and right,

:11:33.:11:38.

with the par-3 and that brought the trees and play or did not so that

:11:39.:11:43.

changed. But very similar. When you won this Championship in 2014, you

:11:44.:11:47.

suffered with your rest and you have that struck top. You have only

:11:48.:11:54.

missed one cut this year so what do you put your form down to, getting

:11:55.:11:59.

over that injury? That is part of it, it an injury is scary and you

:12:00.:12:04.

can't push it or you compensate in other players -- other places and

:12:05.:12:08.

your game can go downhill. With an injury, it you never know when you

:12:09.:12:12.

will get better. But I found the right therapist, Mo Herman. She was

:12:13.:12:18.

fantastic and she built this point and I changed my splint and got back

:12:19.:12:23.

in form and I started working with a new caddy who has been a great

:12:24.:12:28.

addition. I have a great team around me and everything is flowing now.

:12:29.:12:32.

Great ball striking and my putting is coming around so it is fun to be

:12:33.:12:37.

in contention. You make it all sounds so easy! Well done on yet

:12:38.:12:41.

another fantastic Major. Thanks, we work really hard to make it look

:12:42.:12:47.

easy! Catriona Matthew, we thought she

:12:48.:12:53.

would be in contention, but there were 57 macro. A mixed bag today. 73

:12:54.:13:00.

eventually, 9-under for fifth place, her thoughts five bogeys.

:13:01.:13:06.

Another good start today but difficult to keep it going, why? I

:13:07.:13:15.

don't know, I had a couple of shots on the two to the front holes and it

:13:16.:13:23.

was a struggle. A couple of terrible three putts and a birdie on 17 so

:13:24.:13:28.

not bad. Quite disappointed but not too bad. Some of the players said

:13:29.:13:33.

they felt the pins were more tucked and there was more bounce on the

:13:34.:13:38.

course. Yes, the greens were firmer today. The pins were tacked --

:13:39.:13:42.

topped the list two days and the greens were firmer which made it

:13:43.:13:46.

tougher to get close. How special to have husband Graeme on your back

:13:47.:13:51.

hunting down Majors? You have shed a lot of great experiences. Very

:13:52.:13:56.

special. It is great on when he can caddy now, he does not get to do it

:13:57.:14:03.

much. Just great fun. I am busy disappointed but great play in front

:14:04.:14:06.

of the crowd and be in front. Another top-flight finish and that

:14:07.:14:10.

is to be a good thing as you prepare the Rio Olympics? Yes, it just need

:14:11.:14:15.

to move up about three places! When you set up? I go down on Friday the

:14:16.:14:24.

12th. Watch at the weekend and we start on Wednesday. And Graeme is on

:14:25.:14:28.

your back? He is coming, yes. Good luck, have a great week.

:14:29.:14:33.

Thank you very much. Just outside the medals for Catriona Matthew

:14:34.:14:39.

here, finishing tied for fifth place. Seven shots behind the

:14:40.:14:46.

winner. The Gold Medallist. Time to hand over silverware to the

:14:47.:14:50.

champion. Time to hand over this beautiful

:14:51.:14:53.

silver pitcher to our champion in the company of our hesitation party,

:14:54.:15:01.

Trish Wilson and the Deputy President of Ricoh limited Would you

:15:02.:15:08.

please do the honours? Thank you. Congratulations. He makes history as

:15:09.:15:16.

the first time winner of a Major, Ariya Jutanugarn. And very

:15:17.:15:20.

well-deserved. I will as you questions about what must be a very

:15:21.:15:27.

hard effort indeed. How much harder with the last holes then you

:15:28.:15:30.

anticipated? It is very hard because after I have six, I feel I want to

:15:31.:15:37.

make birdie because I missed a lot of putts today. The 34th a turning

:15:38.:15:41.

point with a double-bogey, how much attention at that point? I felt

:15:42.:15:47.

nervous but after that hole, I felt like I could make every shot. You

:15:48.:15:54.

committed and there was a beautiful show at the 17th, described that

:15:55.:15:59.

putt and the relief in getting that putt at the 17th. I feel I wanted to

:16:00.:16:04.

make myself happy because I missed a lot of putts, just make one. He

:16:05.:16:08.

smiled all the way and the biggest smile for your mother. A very

:16:09.:16:13.

special moment at the end, what was that like and what did she say? She

:16:14.:16:22.

cried I think! She did not, when I40 macro my first tournament, she said

:16:23.:16:26.

thank you and that made my day. -- when I won. The first ever tied

:16:27.:16:33.

golfer to win a Major! It is important for me and Thai golf

:16:34.:16:36.

because my goal was to win a Major and I did. I hope I can inspire

:16:37.:16:42.

players in Thailand. You have a beautiful silver trophy and next you

:16:43.:16:46.

go for Gold at Rio Olympics. We and everybody else wishes you the best.

:16:47.:16:52.

You are a wonderful champion. Ariya smiles better and she has done all

:16:53.:16:56.

week, thank you very much. And show me the trophy.

:16:57.:17:05.

Ariya Jutanugarn, Major champion of 2016, the women's British Open

:17:06.:17:10.

champion. And this was the putt that sealed the win, a three shot

:17:11.:17:14.

victory. A first Major and a dousing in champagne. There will be more,

:17:15.:17:23.

you suspect, from this big hitting, big talent.

:17:24.:17:32.

The final story of the Championship at Woburn. Jutanugarn three shots

:17:33.:17:38.

clear of Mo Martin and Mirim Lee. Karrie Webb in a tie for fifth place

:17:39.:17:43.

after her 71. We will get the thoughts now of the former champion.

:17:44.:17:49.

Looking like a very strong top-10 finish once again here. 21 years

:17:50.:17:53.

after your first victory. How would you assess your week back at Woburn?

:17:54.:17:59.

It has been a long time since I have been in contention since the

:18:00.:18:02.

Australian Open at the beginning of the year so Woburn brought a bit of

:18:03.:18:06.

magic back to my game this week. I played solidly. The putter was a bit

:18:07.:18:11.

cold today but overall, my putting was a lot better this week. That is

:18:12.:18:16.

what I had been waiting for, I had been swinging it quite nicely and it

:18:17.:18:20.

has been good to see some shots go in. I would have liked to see more

:18:21.:18:24.

but happy with the week. This is a top ten in a Major and you have

:18:25.:18:28.

seven big titles already. Does this give you heart there will be more in

:18:29.:18:32.

the lock down the track? I still believe that. When you do not play

:18:33.:18:37.

great, it is hard to see it but deep down I know I still have chances to

:18:38.:18:44.

win Majors. It is getting myself a chance. We look forward to you

:18:45.:18:50.

coming back as long as you want! You will have to tell them that!

:18:51.:19:48.

Rio 2016, the Olympic Games starts on August five the BBC.

:19:49.:19:55.

Five days and counting, not just for the BBC, but also for Ariya

:19:56.:20:00.

Jutanugarn because after that performance, she will have a crack

:20:01.:20:05.

at the Gold Medal. She certainly has, that was riveting viewing. We

:20:06.:20:09.

are sitting back not bothered, nice and easy. Sunday afternoon. And

:20:10.:20:14.

suddenly, like this, what is going to happen? That was a privilege to

:20:15.:20:19.

watch. This has been her breakthrough year. What we witnessed

:20:20.:20:25.

was a player who learns to play under extreme pressure. Trying to

:20:26.:20:28.

get across the line for her first Major, it was great stuff.

:20:29.:20:32.

Especially given what we were talking about, the first Major of

:20:33.:20:38.

the year, two shot ahead, bogeyed the last three. That incident stays

:20:39.:20:43.

in your mind and is hard to shift. I think I said in commentary, this

:20:44.:20:48.

time last year, she left temporary after missing the cut. Her tenth

:20:49.:20:52.

consecutive missed court. She was in bits and did not know what to do

:20:53.:20:56.

with her game and how to turn it around. She could not keep a driver

:20:57.:21:01.

on the fairway. She started working with Gary Gilchrist in the spring

:21:02.:21:05.

and he said she did not need anything technical doing, it was up

:21:06.:21:10.

here. She goes to the best there is. They came up with this, I call it

:21:11.:21:17.

the pre-shot smile. We will see that next week on golf courses around the

:21:18.:21:23.

country. The little smile. It is a calming thing. They told her she got

:21:24.:21:27.

too fast under pressure. This helps to calm her down and slow her down,

:21:28.:21:32.

slow down the heart rate. I watched her very closely after that

:21:33.:21:35.

double-bogey because under that sort of pressure, that is the time these

:21:36.:21:39.

routines go out the window. But she carried it through to the end and

:21:40.:21:44.

recovered. The amazing thing is, it is leading the way in terms of the

:21:45.:21:49.

spread of the game. Thailand, we have had Chinese Taipei, South

:21:50.:21:55.

Korea, and also from mainland China breaking new ground, Shanshan Feng.

:21:56.:21:59.

It is happening in the women's game and will surely have a huge impact

:22:00.:22:04.

spreading it further? No doubt, in four years' time in Korea, can you

:22:05.:22:09.

imagine? It will be immense. It is Tokyo in 2020 for the Olympics and

:22:10.:22:12.

it will be fascinating to see the spread of the game. Thank you,

:22:13.:22:18.

Maureen. Plenty of fascinating Dutch plenty of fascinating listening on

:22:19.:22:21.

the radio, because the fourth round in New Jersey has been impacted by

:22:22.:22:29.

the weather. Jason Day and Jimmy Walker and Henrik Stenson with

:22:30.:22:33.

answers. Radio 5 Live is on air tonight from 8:30pm with live

Live and uninterrupted final-round coverage of the 40th British Women's Open from Woburn, which is hosting the event for the first time since 1999.

South Korea's Inbee Park produced a devastating seven-under-par round on the final day at Turnberry 12 months ago to claim the seventh major title of her career. Her stunning round of 65, which included seven birdies and an eagle, equalled the course record and saw the then-world number one comprehensively move clear of the field. The 27-year-old ultimately finished three shots clear of joint overnight leader and compatriot Ko Jin-young and with it completed a career grand slam.

Hazel Irvine introduces the action, with Peter Alliss, Ken Brown, Maureen Madill and Andrew Cotter providing the commentary.
