53-year-old Greg Norman sensationally leads the Open going into the final round as he kept his head whilst all around him lost theirs. Norman carded a 72 to be the clubhouse leader on +2, two shots ahead of nearest challengers, KJ Choi and defending champ Padraig Harrington.
But the bookies still refuse to make the ‘The Great White Shark’ their favourite. He’s best priced at 4/1 (Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Sportingbet, Totesport), just behind Harrington who is the bookies pick at 13/5 (Bet365). Choi appears to be the only other one in contention at 9/2 (Sportingbet)) and it’s 20/1 bar.
Englishman Simon Wakefield was one of just 4 players to record a par round of 70 and that sees him alone in fourth place on +5. He’s 25/1 (Totesport, vcbet) to lift the claret jug tomorrow.
Some of the tournament’s bigger names played themsleves out of contention on a difficult day for golfing. Ian Poulter finds himself in a group of 7 players on +8 and he’s 35/1 (VCBet). Retief Goosen and Sergio Garcia are both 7 shots off the lead and are 33/1 and 35/1 to win respectively.
