2015 British Open Round 3: Recap with results, highlights from Sunday
The 2015 British Open has been bumped into a Monday finish because of some extreme weather earlier this week. As a result, Round 3 was played on Sunday … and boy, was it exciting.
We were here all day updating you with the latest news, notes, tweets, GIFs and other fun stuff. We hope you enjoyed!
The Open 2015 Round 3 Highlights Leaderboard Scores
Here was Jordan Spieth shooting six under and finding himself just a stroke behind the leaders as he seeks to win his third straight major. There was Jason Day, tied for first place and seeking his first major, and amateur Paul Dunne joining him at 12 under (along with Louis Oosthuizen). There was Dustin Johnson, playing poorly and dropping down the leaderboard, a particularly difficult afternoon considering his inability to close at the U.S. Open.
And, of course, there was the remarkable fact that 14 players found themselves within three strokes of one another at the top of the leaderboard after a day of perfect conditions at St. Andrews led to a slew of excellent scores.

That sets up a final pairing of Dunne and Oosthuizen, while Day and Spieth will tee off just before them. It’s hard to beat a final four that includes an amateur, one of the best players on the PGA Tour without a major championship in Day and the game’s budding young superstar looking to make history in Spieth.
Johnson was expected to be in one of the final groups after coming into the day in the lead, but he fell apart Sunday, shooting a shocking three-over 75 and finding himself five strokes off the lead, almost assuredly out of contention for the Claret Jug. It was heartbreaking for the player who was a putt away from winning the U.S. Open but couldn’t seal the deal.
Johnson’s rough day was really the outlier Sunday, as the pristine conditions allowed for low scores throughout the field after inclement weather was such a major factor earlier in the tournament. That, in turn, led to some amazing shots, such as Andy Sullivan’s eagle on No. 14, per The Open.
First Round Highlights
We last saw Dustin Johnson making a mess on the 18th green at Chambers Bay. The giveaway there did not seem to have any impact on DJ, who is playing some of the best golf of his life right now. When he’s at his best, there is probably no one in this field, including Jordan Spieth, who can beat him. St. Andrews sets up perfectly for a long hitter, and no one bombs them farther than Dustin. He repeatedly put his tee ball right around the green on par-4s and holds sole possession of the lead at 7-under. Other highlights from the fist day at the Old Course:
Tiger Woods was supposed to have all that momentum from his last encouraging start. So he began his Open by … hitting it in the water.
Tiger’s entire round was a disaster and maybe a new low in a season of dark moments on the course.
The Road Hole may have been the real winner and destroyer of dreams on Thursday
Matt Kuchar embarrassingly duffed this simple 61-yard wedge shot.
John Daly, sporting his usual glorious pants, charged up the board early.
Miguel Angel Jimenez delivered a breakfast treat with this behind-the-scenes photo.
You won’t believe this but it rained in Scotland on Friday. Rain and wind are usually preferred for the organizers of the British Open, but the water came too fast in the morning and the course was overwhelmed. A three hour and 14 minute delay made the conclusion of 36 holes by Friday night impossible, even in Scotland where it stays light until 10 p.m. this time of year. The day finished with winds whipping Dustin Johnson around but the bomber was still on top of the leaderboard despite unfavorable conditions. He’s got five more holes to finish. Here are some other highlights from Friday at St. Andrews:
Tom Watson made an emotional farewell, starting with a standing ovation on the first tee and finishing in the darkness of a poignant scene around the 18th green.

GOLF CROW tried to fly off with Henrik Stenson’s ball.
John Daly practiced by hitting cigarette butts on the driving range.
Nick Faldo broke out his ugly throwback sweater from his 1987 win for his last Open walk up the 18th at St. Andrews.
The day ended with confusion and surreal scenes as players fumbled around and finished up in the darkness.
Saturday (second round continued) highlights
This was almost a completely lost day at the Open Championship. But after a 10 hour and 28 minute wind delay, Dustin Johnson got his one-shot lead back with a birdie on his last hole. Johnson is playing beautiful golf and taking advantage of a course that rewards his outrageous distance off the tee. He leads Danny Willett and a loaded crop of chasers with 36 more holes to play. Here are some more highlights from a day that did not feature much golf at St. Andrews:
Resuming the 2nd round at 7 a.m. in those winds was a mistake the R&A tried to defend.
The players were furious and Louis Oosthuizen caught maybe the most unfair break of the mess.
DJ also got a raw deal too when his ball was blown off the green before he could mark it.
Trying to pour water in a cup was a comically futile task, as illustrated in this incredible Vine.
During the delay, Jordan Spieth took a nap on his bag while John Daly took questions from fans.
And wind or no wind, Tiger was going home early again and setting the wrong kind of career mark.
Third Round highlights
The weather issues from Friday and Saturday were a distant memory on Sunday. Players were greeted by a soft golf course and perfect scoring conditions. Most took advantage and carded rounds in the mid-60s. . Jordan Spieth’s putter got hot and he charged up the leaderboard as he continues his quest for the grand slam. Amateur Paul Dunne was just as impressive, shooting a 66 to become the first amateur since 1927 to at least share the 54-hole lead. Here are some more highlights from a Sunday moving day at The Open:
Eddie Pepperell found himself in the lead then proceeded to rocket his tee shot on No. 17 INTO the hotel.
Marc Leishman threatened the major championship scoring record before settling for a 64
Fans greeted Jordan Spieth on No. 18 by singing ‘Eyes of Texas’ for the former Longhorn.
Paul Dunne would miss out on $1.8 million if he wins The Open.
Spieth relaxed post round by playing golf basketball on the driving range.
The tee time draw is more important at The Open than any event in golf. The fickle changes in the weather make the challenge completely different depending on the time of day you’re out on the course. The best players in the world can be eliminated by the simple misfortune of where they fell on the tee sheet — this happens every year at The Open and is just a part of links championships. Tiger Woods’ shot at winning the first three majors of 2002 was swept away when he had to go out in what may be the worst weather conditions in the history of the Open. He shot an 81, the worst of his career at the time, in a squall that ended his shot at the Grand Slam.
That weather hit, and in a big way, in a second round that took two full days to complete. Following a three-hour rain delay on Friday morning, Saturday was nearly wiped out completely thanks to a 10 hour and 28 minute wind delay. The entire sequence was a mess for the R&A. High winds forced the second delay at 7:32 a.m. Balls were being blown off greens and players were furious. Many, including Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth, questioned why they even went out there in the first place. Johnson caught a tough break when he had his ball blown off the green and down a hill. The second round finally came to merciful conclusion around 8 p.m. Saturday night in Scotland.
Prior to that finish, however, the R&A made an early announcement that they were not even going to attempt to play 36 holes, or even start the fourth round on Sunday. So they sent tee times on Sunday out in a normal schedule and in twosomes off the 1st tee. Monday will be more of the same with a targeted finish around 1:30 or 2 p.m. ET (7 p.m. in Scotland). Here are the marquee tee times for Monday’s final round:
The Open 2015 Leaderboard / Results
|Place||Player||Score||1st Round||2nd Round||3rd Round|
|T45||Rafael Cabrera Bello||-4||71||73||68|
Several players made runs up the leaderboard with Jason Day, Louis Oosthuizen and amateur Paul Dunne holding a share of the 54-hole lead. Dunne is the first amateur to at least share the 54-hole lead at The Open since 1927. Jordan Spieth is just a shot back following a 66. Dustin Johnson dropped from the 36-hole lead to five off the pace after struggling and carding a 75.
