The Open | Final Round | Notebook
Sunday marks exactly 11 years since Louis Oosthuizen’s win at The Open in 2010, his lone PGA TOUR title. Oosthuizen holds the seventh 54-hole lead/co-lead of his PGA TOUR career, fourth in a major and third at The Open (1-for-7 to date).
2020 PGA Championship winner Collin Morikawa is making his tournament debut at The Open. No pro golfer has ever won two different majors in their first attempts.
Three-time major champion and 2017 Open Championship winner Jordan Spieth played the final two holes in 2-over and enters the final round trailing by three strokes (3rd place (-9). Spieth has two come-from-behind wins on Tour (2013 John Deere Classic, 2015 Valspar Championship).
Defending Open champion Shane Lowry stands T-12 after a third-round (69) as he attempts to become the first player to successfully defend his title at The Open since Padraig Harrington in 2008.
