UPDATE NO. 3 (8:50 a.m. ET): Rory McIlory is off at No. 1 and makes par. He’s 2 under and nine back. Unless he posts a score we’ve never seen in a major, this won’t be a win for McIlroy. He can still post a high finish, though!
UPDATE NO. 2 (8:25 a.m. ET): Another record at Royal Birkdale: 235,000 have turned out to watch this year’s Open, the biggest crowd ever outside St. Andrew’s.
UPDATE NO. 1 (7:32 a.m. ET): We already have a Sunday 64! Aaron Baddeley birdies Nos. 15-17 to fire a 6-under closing round and finish the week at 1 over. He’s jumped 40 spots on the leaderboard to a tie for 35th. Well done, Badds!
