Rose entered the day having shot an even par on each of his first two rounds on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, however, he is off to a rollicking start, with birdies on holes six, seven and eight to put him at 3-under, just two strokes off the pace of leaders Fred Couples and Jason Dufner, who have yet to tee off on Saturday.

Other golfers at 3-under include Nick Watney and Paul Lawrie.
