He heads into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in third place on 11 under par after a round of 70 yesterday.

However he is seven shots behind runaway leader Tyrrell Hatton after he hit a brilliant 65.

Shane Lowry is next best of the Irish on seven under, one ahead of Graeme McDowell.

Rory McIlroy and Gavin Moynihan are four under par, while Padraig Harrington missed the cut.
