The Open live! Leaderboard and latest updates from Royal Birkdale with Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and more in action

Back-to-back pars for both Spieth and Kuchar at the seventh and eighth holes.

 

Spieth remains in the lead by two shots.

Henrik Stenson‘s final round at last year’s Open was memorable. This year, less so.

 

He’s three over par for the day after ten holes, putting him at level par for the tournament.

 

The Swede won’t be lifting the Claret Jug this year.

 

 

Current standings

-9: Spieth (thru 7)

-7: Kuchar (7)

-6: Li (F)

-4: Cabrera-Bello (10), Southgate (F), Leishman (F), Koepka (8), McIlroy (11), Noren (13)

Is McIlroy about go on the charge? He moves to two under for the day and four under for the tournament with a birdie at the 11th! 

 

Just five shots separate the Northern Irishman and leader Jordan Spieth.

 

 

Brooks Koepka started the day in third but he’s largely struggled in his final round.

 

Bogeys at the first and seventh saw him fall to three under par but a birdie at the eighth a short while ago has moved him back to four under.

Spieth gets a couple of lucky breaks on his way to a par at the sixth. 

 

Kuchar gets no such luck, though, as he is forced to settle for a bogey which sees him fall two shots behind his countryman.

Spieth regains the lead with a birdie at the fifth as Kuchar only manages to par the hole.

A birdie from McIlroy at the ninth – his first birdie of the day – sees him move to within five shots of the lead.

Well, this wasn’t in the script.

 

Spieth produces another unwanted bogey – his third in four holes – to drop to eight under par. 

 

Kuchar, meanwhile, pars the fourth and he is now level with his fellow American at the top of the leaderboard,

 

 

Rory McIlroy‘s chances of lifting the Claret Jug are all but over. 

 

Jordan Spieth may be faltering but the Northern Irishman isn’t taking advantage.

 

He’s level par for the day and remains seven shots off the lead after eight holes.

Bogeys at the third for both Spieth and Kuchar as the American duo fall to nine and eight under par respectively.
