    Royal Birkdale,
    England
    Greg Norman goes into the final round with a 2 shot lead over last years winner Padraig Harrington, and Korea's KJ Choi. Not bad for a 53 year old who only plays the occasional tournament these days. He plays tennis wife his new wife, Chris Evert, more often these days. I think he is as gobsmacked as the rest of us. The conditions have been horrendous for the first 3 rounds, but today it looks as if they will be quite favourable.
    I would like to see him complete the fairytale, but given that he has been known to choke when leading, my money is on Padraig to do the double.

    Norman drops 3 shots after the first 3 holes. Harrington with a 1 shot lead going to the 4th.

    After 10 holes, Norman and Harrington are tied for the lead at +7.
    The wind is causing havoc on the golf course. Norman is +5 for the round so far, Harrington is +3. Suddenly, there are 7 players on +8, +9 and +10 who are all in with a shout.
    Typical scouse weather.:D

    Congratulations to Padraig.:D Back to back Opens. No mean feat.
    Final scores http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/golf/live_scores/7510391.stm.
    Hard luck to Greg Norman, he couldn't quite hold it together. Never mind. Walking away with his arm around a very fit looking Chris Evert,;) and with a mulit-million dollar buisness empire, I'm sure he'll get over it!!
