The final round of the 150th British Open Championship promises to be one of the most exciting for years as a host of top European stars attempt to hunt down Louis Oosthuzen the runaway leader .
The South African who won the Andalucian Open earlier this year finished his third round yesterday in sensational style with a solid par at the road hole sandwiched in between birdies at the 16th and 18th .
Oosthuizen started nervously yesterday but held his nerve supremely well after three putting the 1st hole and now sits four shots clear of Englishman Paul Casey who shot a brilliant 67 yesterday .
The leading pair will tee off at 2.05pm and the weather is expected to be very similar to that of Saturday with blustery winds and the occasional shower . Paddy Power make Oosthuzen 9/4 to win this final 2 ball which is surely very generous given the South African’s form to-date .
Henrik Stenson and Martin Kaymer represent solid chances for Europe and are the second last group out at 1.45pm .However Kaymer in third place is seven shots off the pace and faces an uphill task to make up the deficit .
Britains Lee Westwood playing alongside young Spaniard Alejandro Canizares start their rounds at 1.45pm on 7 under par and realistically know that they will have to rely on Oostthuizen to drop shots today if they are to have any chance of picking up the coveted Claret Jug .
Other notable tee times are 1.15pm for Rory McIlroy who returned to form yesterday with a 69 and 12.20 for Tiger Woods who is surely out of contention after struggling to a one over par 73 .
