The 18th green being watered for a very big Sunday!

Britain’s Lee Westwood is your Open Championship 54-hole leader as he attempts to win his first major title. Many consider him to be the best active player without a major victory, a list Hunter Mahan is quickly rising up on and Mahan will join Westwood in the final group on Sunday. Hunter also played in the final pairing on Sunday at the U.S. Open, but struggled.

But the most interesting pairing (maybe EVER in a major?) will be Tiger Woods and Adam Scott who’s caddie Steve Williams used to carry the bag for Tiger until their bitter breakup a few years back.

This won’t be the first time Woods has been paired with his former caddie and Scott. They were in a group together for the first two rounds of the U.S. Open. Tiger will begin the day in a tie for second place at 1-under, two strokes behind Westwood. And one very intriguing stat to watch is Tiger being 14-1 in his career when opening the final round of a major with at least a share of the lead, but is 0-47 when he doesn’t.

The following are your post round interviews to listen to…and thanks for checking in here…
