Paul Dunne has incredibly put himself in contention to win The Open with the amateur in amongst the biggest names in golf after three rounds.

The 22-year-old hit an opening round of 69 on Thursday, keeping him in touching distance of the leaders at St Andrews.

With most expecting the Irishman to fall away, on Friday he managed another 69 to put him -6 overall - well inside the cut.

During the third-round on Sunday, it just got even better with Dunne carding a 66 to leave him on -12 placing him in joint-lead.

The question now is can Dunne handle the pressure in the final round and go all the way?
