THERE should be a thrilling finish to The Open with 10 players within three shots of the lead held by Lee Westwood.
The Englishman has performed well all week, boosted by coaching sessions from Ian Baker-Finch and Sean Foley, and is in prime position to land his first Major title.
Westwood's been there before of course but looks in control this time with his putter working well. If he can get his mental state right he should be there or thereabouts at the finish.
He leads by two from American duo Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods and it's the latter who'll be expected to push Westie all the way.
Woods, however, has never come from behind to win a Major on the final day and I can see Westwood holding on. Mahan can't be written off but the biggest challenge may come from Adam Scott who was pipped at the post by Ernie Els last year.
Aussie Scott lies two back on level par and a good start could see him pile pressure on the top three.
It's a star-studded leaderboard with former US Open and Masters champions Angel Cabrera on one over with Zach Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Ryan Moore.
And a shot further back is my pre-tournament tip Phil Mickelson and Fernando Molinari.
Westwood is now a best 2-1 at Coral to win with Woods second favourite at 5-2 with Paddy Power. Both are too short for my liking, especially when you consider Mahan is 15-2 at Coral and might be worth an each-way punt as he's genuinely world class.
Scott will be backed at 7-1 (various) but Stenson, 22-1 (various) missed too many short putts for my liking on Saturday including one for par at the last. Cabrera and Zach Johnson are both 33-1 and Mickelson is 28-1 at Coral.
I've got a couple of each-way bets still running on Zach Johnson and Mickelson and maybe even Els who is six off the pace and could nab a top-eight finish.
Going into the final day I'm adding another runner in American Moore who is 40-1 at Ladbrokes despite sitting joint fourth. So he only needs to climb one place to provide an each-way return and although he's not as well known as some of his compatriots he is a PGA Tour winner and has been in the world's top 50 for the best part of four years.
Both my twoball tips won on Saturday thanks to Brandt Snedeker and Thomas Bjorn. Snedeker's been pretty solid the whole tournament and as he eyes a good finish I'm backing him again v veteran Stewart Cink at 8-11 with Betfred.
Scots star Martin Laird suffered more than most on Saturday. He stumbled to a nine on the third then later picked a penalty when it was claimed he'd touched his ball to identify it in the rough without telling his playing partner or rules official. It all added up to a sad 81 for a player in title contention at the start of the day and I can only see Laird's score going south on Sunday.
He faces American veteran Mark O'Meara who knows his way round a links course and I'm on him at 21-10 at boylesports.
For a third single take Els to finish well by beating Richard Sterne. Els will be eyeing a repeat of last year when he caught Scott and is 5-6 at Coral to outscore the South African.
Snedeker to beat Cink (11.40am)
O'Meara to beat Laird (8.55am)
Els to beat Sterne (12.35pm)
