Then a big group on +5.  Looking good for Westwood and McDowell, but the way the course has been playing (or people playing it) it's clearly very easy to drop a large number of shots very quickly.  It will come down to whoever can hold their nerve, and sink their putts. 

It seems rather odd to me however, that going into the final round of a major, that there should be only 2 players under par - yes the majors should be difficult but this is the sort of scorecard you normally associate with the Open where you get four rounds of torrential rain and driving wind.  It's like they looked at McIllroy annihilate the field last year and have gone completely the other way - make the course so difficult that the world number 1 (even though he didn't play great) shoots +7 for his first round.  Bit too extreme for me
