Paul Dunne carded the lowest third round by an amateur and the lowest 54-hole total by an amateur Thankfully for the field it was the final pairing of Danny Willett and Dustin Johnson which failed to really join the party and ensured a three-way tie at the top between Irish amateur Paul Dunne, Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen.

But it was a day where so many potential winners played themselves into contention.

Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Adam Scott to name just three.

On Sunday 12 of the 18 holes were playing under par compared to eight in round two and 10 in round one.

There were also a total of 343 birdies and four eagles.

Special mention must go to Dunne who carded the lowest third round by an amateur and the lowest 54-hole total by an amateur.

He will play in the final pairing with Oosthuizen in what promises to be a memorable Monday on the Old Course.
