IT'S a four-way tie at the top going into the final day of the US Open and expect more fireworks at Chambers Bay tonight.

Players have been critical of the course and sub-standard greens but it's made for a thrilling spectacle with plenty of birdies, bogeys and double bogeys.

It's unlikely anyone will run away with this tournament and it could all the way to the final putt on an 18th green which will be played as a par five after player pressure forced organisers to change it from an unpopular par four.

Masters champion Jordan Spieth is 11-5 favourite with boylesports and while he started superbly yesterday and reached seven under he struggled as the ground hardened and finished with a 71 for four under.

That total was matched by long-hitting Dustin Johnson who's been eating up some of the toughest holes, South African Brendan Grace who I tipped at 14-1 ew at halfway and Aussie Jason Day who is battling a tough track as well as vertigo.

For me it's now between Spieth and Johnson who is 3-1 at BetVictor. Grace is 13-2 at Skybet and I hope he stays involved while Day would be an amazing winner considering he collapsed on the course on Friday and stunned everyone by teeing it up on Saturday. Day is a best 9-2 at Coral.

Another amazing winner would be Louis Oosthuizen who is three back but 10 under for his last 34 holes after being nine over at one stage while playing with Tiger Woods. He is the only long shot I'd consider at 22-1 ew with bet365.

Next in the betting is Ireland's Shane Lowry and America's JB Holmes who are both 33-1 at Coral.

For some match bets I like Sergio Garcia to beat young Scot Jimmy Gunn, Geoff Ogilvy to outscore a tiring Colin Montgomerie and Rory McIlroy to beat John Senden. McIlroy played superbly yesterday but couldn't hole any putts.

Match betting treble

Ogilvy to beat Montgomerie (6.40pm)
Garcia to beat Gunn (7.36pm)
McIlroy to beat Senden (8.24pm)
(3-1, Skybet)

    When speith went 3 shots clear I thought I was ready to collect my winnings thought this guy really is special holding back to back 25 footers but the 3 putts on following holes showed her is human. Hoping speith can bring home the bacon have had fiver on jb Holmes at 33/1 the only annoying thing is not being able stay up to watch it as surviving on couple hours sleep before work ain’t going happen

      tam, it was gubbed.

  3. tam 7 years ago

    Ha, typical!
    I’ve left a message on the competition thread looking for an update on how many left and scores to this point. Think it’ll be possible before the big guns start tonight?

    • Scott Allot 7 years ago

      tam, no chance I’m afraid, I don’t have the time. Feel free to add them up and post the scores as a comment if you like though

  4. tam 7 years ago

    Hmmm, I’ve counted my own and ruled out those who I had big names who missed the cut but I don’t really have time either. Also I’d open myself up to those who live for people making mistakes on here!!

  5. tam 7 years ago

    Just posted on comp thread – 32 left in I think – May bea handful off having missed ssomeone who made the cut somewhere. A good number of those 32 are as good as out with mickelson’s final score.
    It’s probably between a dozen or so

  6. DK 7 years ago

    Had a couple of quid ew on louis the south african at 22/1 and a couple on lowry 28/1 ew. Hoping for a dramatic night.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      DK, unbelievable by Rory – in touching distance of the leaders now. And my treble is an almost certain winner too. Only 7-1 now.

  7. DK 7 years ago

    Rory 12/1 ew – 2 points… CHARGE

  8. HullShaker 7 years ago

    Great stuff Mr F…Rory on fire – was dawdling like a dick at 20/1…by the time I’d put it on he’d birdied and was 9/1…doh.

  9. HullShaker 7 years ago

    …and bogeys the 14th!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      HullShaker, the charge is over but what a charge it was. Johnson looks the man now but a long way to go.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      HullShaker, Rory back to 100-1 – it’s amazing what one missed putt can do. Good shape for The Open though.

  10. mlac 7 years ago

    groth looks worth a shout in the morning just under evens to beat a 400 ranked russian.

  11. malkster 7 years ago

    JORDAN SPEITH again..what a player..Mr Johnson what a Bottler..have Jordan on bets for all 4 majors..2 up..2 to go..

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      malkster, I can’t see Spieth winning all 4 but if he picks up The Open you’ll be able to cover or cash out. It’s Rory at St Andrews for me. What price did you get on all four?

  12. malkster 7 years ago

    No bet him individually all 4..cant see him doing GS either…between 33s n 50s..each start of year…KACHING..covered johnson on Saturday. .serious doubts about him in majors..oosty for me at St Andrews..Mr F..

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      malkster, Oosthuizen must be considered but I’ll look at it nearer the time and after watching most of the players at Gullane the week before. Going over there and to St Andrews and looking forward to them.

  13. malkster 7 years ago

    Going to Gullane with my Brother on Friday of Tournament. .looks a Great field..Enjoy Mr F..

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      malkster, I’ll go Thursday or Friday – think it will be mayhem at the weekend.
