Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jordan Spieth is just like us? Hits approach into third green and promptly says, "I have no idea where that is..."

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Red is good when the weather at The Open is perfect as it is right now. Not a good sign when the last six groups on the course have NO red numbers on the board early.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

Silver medal winner Alfie Plant gives his brother a hug and enjoys the loud applause of the crowd as his Royal Birkdale adventure comes to an end. Few amateurs can have had more fun at The Open.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jordan Spieth turns 24 in a few days. Grizzled veteran compared with Haotong Li (21) and Austin Connelly (20), each T-3 right now.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Today marks the 10th time since the 2015 Masters that Jordan Spieth has held or shared a 54-hole tournament lead. On those previous nine occasions, he's converted eight times for the victory. The lone outlier? Last year's Masters, when he famously lost on the back-nine. He enters today's final round of The Open with a three-stroke advantage.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

It's been a long few days at Royal Birkdale! This guy might have a great view of the 15th green but his eyes are closed and he's missing all the action. Hopefully he'll wake up in time to see leader Jordan Spieth later on.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Here's the R&A's full explanation of how Royal Birkdale has been set up for the final round of The Open. Sunday it will play longer than any of the three previous rounds.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

Alfie's Army, made up of family and friends supporting British amateur Alfie Plant, has dwindled to something more like a specialist fan unit as he gets closer to claiming the silver medal, but they are still having fun and making themselves heard.

Bob Harig @BobHarig

R&A announced that Open at Birkdale most attended of any outside of St. Andrews, surpassing 235,000. Record 239,000 at St. Andrews in 2000

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Sunday is PAYDAY in golf. Wanna win The Open Championship? Well here's all the hole locations for the final round.

Steven Saunders ESPN UK 

Another superb morning for Open scoring at Birkdale, and Australia's Aaron Baddeley takes full advantage. Playing in the second match of the day, he signs for 6-under 64, finishing at +1 for the tournament.
