Turnberry bit back Saturday, but J.B. Holmes remained in the hunt.
Typical British Open conditions blew the field closer and closer to even par, taking Holmes, a former UK golfer with it. After back-to-back strong rounds to open the tournament, Holmes shot a 5-under 75 on Saturday, seven shots back of 59-year-old Tom Watson, who leads the tournament at 4-under. (What a story by the way, if Watson can pull it off.)
