The Open 2017, fourth round at Royal Birkdale

"If that continues and I feel that way as we get in our warm-up and then early in the round tomorrow, then I can play more conservatively off the tee and take a lot of those bunkers out of play and that's obviously very important".

Kuchar said: "I played well today. It was a fun walk".

Entering Sunday, Spieth had a solid three stroke lead over Matt Kuchar and looked to be in a comfortable position to wrap up the third major of his career, and put himself on the brink of completing a career Grand Slam at just 23. He moved to 8-under par for the round with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 17th, and then wrapped up the record with a lovely lag from behind the 18th green to 2 feet.

All wound up on the list beneath a 29-year-old who has played 21 majors and has shown strong results in recent years: four top-five finishes, all at the 2015 and 2016 U.S. Opens and PGA Championships. In case Saturday got away from you, the South African sank eight birdies en route to becoming the first to ever shoot a 62 or better during a major championship round.

Four Players are eight strokes behind Spieth, they are: Chan Kim, Rafael Cabrera Bello, Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson.

But this looks like a two-man race Sunday.

For the second time in three rounds, Jordan Spieth stayed bogey free on his way to shooting 5-under-par 65 during The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England.

"Tomorrow will be a day that will be emotionally draining and hard to stay very neutral in the head, but that's probably the most important thing for me to do". I missed a couple of short ones but made a couple of nice ones to make up for it. Connelly is the 524th-ranked player in the world, and he doesn't yet have a World Golf Ranking-qualified win to his name. He had a 10-foot birdie putt for 62 in the second round of the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill that he left short.

The 29-year-old started with a birdie on the first hole before four more birdies to turn in 29 on the par 34 outward loop.

After dropping three shots during a nervy front nine as Kuchar drew level, worse was to come for Spieth.

Sunday's forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of showers and northwest winds that could approach 20 miles per hour in the afternoon. It was a battle with both of us pushing each other.

"It was a special day".

"So tomorrow will be a day that will be emotionally draining, and hard to stay neutral in the head".

"It's not quite where I need it to be to win the biggest golf tournaments in the world", McIlroy said.

"You nearly kind of see the finish line, and you control your own destiny".

I wrote about how Kuchar and Spieth are basically running that Henrik Stenson-Phil Mickelson duel back from past year, but here are nine other thoughts on Round 3 from Birkdale.

The golfers had the benefit of good weather and a course that had been softened by heavy rains the day before, allowing them to better hold the greens with their approach shots.
