SOUTHPORT, England -- A 23-year-old Jordan Spieth heads into the final round of the 146th Open holding a 3-shot lead, which is nothing new. The Texan has sat atop the leaderboard an astonishing 14 different times after a round in his young career. If he can make it 15 on Sunday, he'll grab the third leg of the career Grand Slam. So will he pull it off? We asked our panel of writers on the ground at Royal Birkdale to weigh in. No chance. When he's "on" like this, no one can catch him. What's scary is the rest of the field knows it, too. His 2015 wasn't that long ago. When he went to a place where when he got into contention, he won.

Peter Alliss risked being branded as sexist again in referring to Sergio Garcia’s fiancee’s “lovely legs” and saying her skirt didn’t belong on a golf course. The legendary BBC commentator was criticized at April’s Masters for an off-mic remark in which he said Angela Akins was wearing “the shortest skirt on the campus.” And now he has refused to back down from his comments in a column for a magazine. Alliss writes in Atlantic Golf & Lifestyle that Akins’ skirt was more suited to ice skating than a golf course. She was seen at Royal Birkdale this week wearing a skirt similar to the one that initially caught Alliss’ attention at Augusta. Garcia will marry American Akins – a former Golf Channel

At the Ryder Cup last year the Golf Channel introduced a new feature which can only be described as a game changer. Rather than miss one second of play, when it's time for an ad break, Golf Channel simply runs the ad in a double screen alongside the coverage.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer Close Senior writer/video talent for Worked for several players as PGA Tour caddie Former stand-up comedian SOUTHPORT, England -- High winds and cooler temperatures meant bogeys were slapping guys' scorecards like the waves slap the beach ... often.

The new dress code which came into effect at the Marathon Classic has caused a social media storm but the players themselves think the fuss is a case of much ado about nothing. "If a fan tunes into the LPGA this week, they will not see a noticeable difference from what players have been and are currently wearing," Heather Daly-Donofrio, the LPGA's chief communications officer, said in an email to Reuters.
