      All the action was in those last few holes on the third day.  Looked like Mickelson was going to claw his way back.  Speith made a couple of mistakes on the last two holes - going to be under huge pressure today but then wouldn't you be at 21!

      Should be a good night.  Be interesting to see if Tiger Woods can finish ahead of McIllroy or not as well.

      Really looking forward to tonight.

      I think Tiger will finish ahead of Rory.

      Still think Mickleson is the most likely contender to push Spieth.

      Agree.  That chip from off the green by Rose is the reason he is in the final pairing.  Can't see him putting pressure on the young lad on his own.

      I think if Phil was going out with Spieth it would have put even more pressure on him.

      A strong start from Mickleson will make things interesting although if you were betting Jordan still looks a strong favourite.

      Spieth is a pretty cool customer. I think he'll have it put away before he starts the back nine.

      Speith could break a record in the next couple holes. No player has ever gotten to -19 during a round.

      Looking like he is going to do the -19.

      I usually hope for a comeback from one of the pack as the leader crumbles when I watch The Masters. I like this kid though and it would be sad to see him lose it now.

      Let's see how he fairs on Amen Corner now.

      Just played a hell of a shot out of trouble, if he saves par here he will have dodged a bullet. I bet he leaves his driver in the bag for the rest of the day.

      Nice to see Tiger improving from his recent form.

      Can't see Spieth throwing this away now. Fantastic little player he is and especially for his age.

      Big week in my hometown, well I've since moved a few miles away but where I grew up, as the Irish Open come to Newcastle County Down and to one of the greatest golf courses in the world.



      http://www.irishopen.ie/

      The field is amazing and possible one of the best on the tour this year and it will be fantastic to see so many great golfers so close to home and the first time I'll see them live.

      I'm off to the Pro Am tomorrow and have tickets for the final day on Sunday and the buzz around the town and local area is huge and I cannot wait.

      It is a stunning backdrop mate and although I'm biased it reall is one of the best in the world in terms of golf and the course itself is regularly rated in the top 2/3 or so in the world.

      We had a great day today at the Pro Am even though it pissed down for about 3 hours in the afternoon. Got to see the three local lads, Rory, Darren Clarke and G Mac, play a few holes and also seen the likes of Sergio, Ernie, Rickie Fowler, Westwood and many more play the course.

      Tony McCoy was out with Rickie and his tee shot on 11th was as long as the pro and he actually made par there. Great golf from him. Missed Shane Warne as we were wacthing Clarke hit his second on the 11th following a wild hooked tee shot so the others by passed us in that group. Jimmy Nesbitt and Paddy Wallace, Irish Rubgy player, were out with Ernie and we seen a good few holes with them along with getting a chat and picture with Paddy after the 18th which was a nice surprise.

      As I said a great day out and nice and relaxed in preparation for us going to the final day on Sunday.

      I have a passing interest in golf and I've never heard of or seen that course before, but I will remember it now.

      Attending a Pro Am seems to be a great day out with a relaxed atmosphere that you wouldn't get during a tournament. It certainly sounds like you had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed it.

      Sunday will a different altogether and I hope it's a dramatic finish, rather than someone running away with it.

      Nice gesture from Rory - donating his winnings to his charity. I read about it on the BBC Sport website.

      Never heard of Royal County Down? Shame on you.

      It was a great day and like you said nice and relaxed but looking forward to the competition proper.

      Apparently the weather made the course a right bi*ch this morning with Rory having a nightmare +9 80 round.

      My handicap was heading down into low single figures at one time.
      My swing has gone to sh*t since the hip replacement operation, and losing a bit of muscle to infection around the incision hasn't helped.

      It's a cracking course, and one I just have to play at some point, even if I go round over 100  :laugh:

      I know, it's shocking that I hadn't heard of Royal County Down before.  :angel:

      I have only ever played 3 full rounds of golf and one of those was in horrible weather, so I know what that's like.
