Inbee Park bid for glory blown off course by cruel winds at British Open

It will take a humungous heave to pull in the field from here, the kind of feat that is commonplace in Inbee Park's season of unprecedented riches. No one needs convincing of Park's status as the world's best female golfer. A fourth major victory on the spin to keep her grand slam ambitions alive would add lustre to her name but hardly substance.

Els has high hopes with good Grace

Ernie Els has tipped fellow South African Branden Grace to achieve major success ahead of the final round of the Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews. Grace takes a four-stroke advantage over Dane Thorbjorn Olesen into the closing 18 holes after a three-under-par 69 at Carnoustie – the toughest of the three courses used for the celebrity pro-am – lifted him to 20 under. "He's good enough to win an Open – he's that good," Els, the current Claret Jug holder, said of the 24-year-old.
