It's an early Saturday morning start for those golfers who couldn't finish their second rounds on Friday as the sun begins to rise through the clouds over St Andrews
Steven Tiley's nightmare second round continues as he plays out of a bunker on the 16th. The Englishman, who lists UK garage as his favourite genre of music, impressed with a six-under 66 on day one
The conditions are a lot more favourable in the early-morning hours than they were on Friday as Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke cards his second score of 70 to move to four under on the leaderboard
But just as the players start to enjoy the sunshine, the evil clouds slowly begin to loom back into view, as Scott Verplank finds out at the sixth tee
Luke Donald starts his third round in promising fashion by moving to two-under and under par for the tournament. He doesn't look impressed when the rain turns up though...and who can blame him?
He sported a garish pair of purple and yellow slacks on Friday but come Saturday, John Daly pulls out the big guns by wearing his red and black 'cherry bomb' trousers.
England's Robert Rock is the first player to find form on Saturday. The 33-year-old gets to the turn in 31 after an eagle at the seventh and holds on well for an impressive 67 - the joint best score of the day
Sweden's Henrik Stenson surges up the leaderboard on "moving day" after holing four birdies on the front nine before a superb eagle on the 14th
With several players beginning a third-round charge, the excitement is captivating every single fan at St Andrews. Well, maybe not quite every single fan...
It all goes wrong for former champion Mark Calcavecchia relatively quickly. The veteran bogeys the first three holes and takes a quadruple-bogey on the fifth having lost his ball
Sergio Garcia, another one of Europe's top golfers never to have won a major, holes an eagle on the par-five fifth which propels him towards the top of the leaderboard
It's another relatively quiet day for world number one Tiger Woods though. He reaches 11 at one-over for the day and three under overall. Plenty of time for the famour 'Tiger charge' however
Paul Casey helps Saturday at the Open live up to its 'moving day' nickname. The Englishman starts like a train, picking up four shots on the first seven holes to move to 10 under, just one shot behind leader Louis Oosthuizen
Stenson also continues his tremendous round, with yet another birdie at 18 securing a 67 that moves him right into contention ahead of an exciting final day
Martin Kaymer is another golfer to climb the leaderboard on Saturday afternoon. The German hits a superb 68 to move into third place overall on eight under
Shot of the day has to go to Miguel Angel Jimenez. The canny Spaniard finds himself trapped for room on the 17th but hammers into the old wall, with the ball looping onto the green
The day belongs to Oosthuizen once again though. The South African looks in complete control throughout, hitting only one bogey in a 69 that leaves him four shots clear going into the final day
