Rough, rough, rough

That describes the tee shots of Paul Casey, Rory McIlroy and Gary Woodland on the 17th, who have all erred right of the fairway. Woodland’s faded very wide, McIlroy and Casey’s hopes will hang very much on their lies.

Rickie Fowler into the mix

He holes his fourth birdie of the day at the 15th to move to three-under,  just five off the lead. He’s in the game.

Rory's done it!

Woodland doesn’t put enough on his birdie putt, and looks disappointed as he settles for par. Rory’s turn now, and it’ s actually only about 10 feet to the hole. Can he do it… he can!! That’s his fifth birdie on the back nine – just one more will give him his ticket into the weekend.

McIlroy gives himself a chance at 16

He takes a five-iron at the par-three and hits well off the tee. It’s a longish birdie opportunity, but what matters is that it’s an opportunity. Gary Woodland has also given himself a good chance with his tee shot – the US Open champion is just one shot away from the cut.
