JUSTIN Rose is 10 shots behind leader Henrik Stenson going into the final round of the Open today.

The former Robert May’s School pupil is tied in 34th place at two over after three rounds at Royal Troon.

Rose opened with a three under 68, thanks to birdies at four, nine, 15 and 16 and one bogey on seven.

However, the fine weather of Thursday disappeared on Friday as the 35year-old had to fight the elements and hence carded a 77.

He got off to the worst possible start with a dropped shot at the first and then a double bogey at four.

He dropped another shot at nine and then after hitting eight pars on the trot suffered another double bogey at the last.

His third round on Saturday saw him card a one under 70 and it would have been a lot better had he not dropped two shots on the 16th.

This was after Rose hit a run of three birdies through holes five to seven, but then dropped a shot on eight, before picking up a lone birdie on the back nine on hole 13.
