When did Butch Harmon die? Looks like he's been dug up and had a cheap suit put on him.

Talking in terms of position on the leaderboard.

What wave was Patrick Reed in?

GPB I think Reed was a few groups ahead of McIlroy, certainly out in some of the worst conditions.

If the wind stays strong today well then let's say -8! If it calms down I'd say -13

Doesn't the forecast suggest the wind might ease off a little later this afternoon/evening?
In which case the leaders could really string the field out.

Unfortunately, Porteous is +5 on the 18th hole; imagine there'll be lots of stats like that this week.

Isn't it just about time Danny Willett snapped out of his post-Augusta hangover?

Nice round too from Snedeker, and he needs it to keep pace on the us Ryder Cup points list.

Interesting stat on the ET web-site:
Over his last TEN Major rounds, Spieth hasn't broken par: +18.

Jason Day trying hard to reel in the leaders - will he keep this up?

Nick Dougherty just got his players mixed up and we had a boxer putting for birdie. Ricky Fowler + Tyrell Hatton = Ricky Hatton.

How does Rory fix his putting? I assume he realises just how bad he is compared to the other top players.

Matsuyama got a penalty for slow play during the 2013 open but somehow Stenson has avoided the same fate today. Penalize the Japanese but not the Ryder cupper?

Come on Henrik!

Lots to play for on Sunday, including Top Ten exemption for Birkdale - that'll be big for guys like Beef, Bradley, Kjeldsen, Stricker, Finau, Hatton, Herman etc.

Top four go to Augusta.

Mickelson/Stenson finished in about 4 hours/

Sneds and Spieth, in one of the early tee times finished in 3 hrs 25 minutes

I sure get the feeling that FIGJAM is on borrowed time, so Stenson the clear favorite. Let's hope he can cope with the pressure.

But Mickelson/Stenson lost more than a hole to the group in front (soren's group), which is the usual measure of whether you are playing slowly or not.

On the PGATour, if you're within "Time Par" you are not put on the clock.

I don't know what the R&A procedures are.

I usually notice when one of the last groups is out of position but it was not apparent to me today that it happened.

I have the telecast on my DVR if you could point out the hole where you think Stenson/Mickelson were out of position.

How fast will Monty play as a one-some tomorrow? I guess it depends on what is on the brunch buffet!

Not sure, but almost certain that the group in front were on the 14th green while stenson/Phil were teeing off on 13.

Question is, though, which of the chasing posse would you fancy to take advantage of stumbles by the leaders?
I don't fancy Billy Haas or Beef, so the rest are seven strokes behind Phil.

Since #14 is a par 3, that is probably less than 10 minutes out of position.

Mcilroy with another final round charge in a major when he is out of contention, it seems to be the case the last 2 years....Everyone always goes on about his putting being his major weakness, but for me his short games is just as poor

If you are within the standard, IMO, there is not a problem

FWIW...Henrik and Phil played the front nine in less than 2 hours. Rory and Emiliano just completed their round in 3 hrs 40 minutes.

Humdinger of a final round between Stenson and Mickelson. They are a huge distance from the rest of the field. They have both played brilliantly across all four rounds.
