The skies have cleared at the 2011 British Open, and the leaders who teed off late in Saturday's third round are reaping the rewards. None is doing so better than Dustin Johnson.
Johnson, who began the day at 2-under, is now 3-under for his round and tied for the lead at 5-under with Darren Clarke. Johnson's had an up-and-down third round, with six birdies and three bogeys through 16 holes, but if he can play his final two in even par, he will have the lowest third round of the 2011 British Open yet, and might well have a share of the lead or better heading into Sunday's final round.
Just three players are under par for Saturday's third round: Johnson; Rickie Fowler, in the clubhouse with a 2-under 68; and Clarke, 1-under through 13 holes.
