• The Open: Round 3 tee times

    Ernie Els at The Open
    Ready to move

    Erik van Rooyen will join World Cup of Golf teammate Dylan Frittelli for round three at Royal Portrush as The Open moves into the business end.

    Van Rooyen, though, will start one stroke behind Frittelli who will be looking to make up the three shots he lost in his final two holes late on Friday.

    The pair are off at 16:00 SA time some 30 minutes before Justin Harding, who heads up the SA charge after rounds of 71 and 65. Australian Cameron Smith provides company in a potential all-Presidents Cup two-ball.

    The Internationals captain, Ernie Els, though will not be able to keep a close eye as he has his own playing commitments at 14:25 alongside England’s Matt Fitzpatrick.

    Nearly an hour before that Branden Grace and Sergio Garcia will look to close the seven-shot gap between themselves and co-leaders JB Holmes and Shane Lowry.

    At 12:40, there is another potential Presidents Cup teammates pairing as Louis Oosthuizen (E) is joined by Shubhankar Sharma.
