SATURDAY SLAM

The return to Muirfield is sure to bring back memories of Saturday in 2002, when a black cloud from the east brought cold air, 40 mph wind and a driving rain for just over two hours. Among those caught in the storm was Tiger Woods, whose bid for a Grand Slam ended with an 81, his highest score as a pro. Colin Montgomerie shot 84, 20 shots higher than his second round.

SIR NICK'S FAREWELL

Nick Faldo returns to play his last British Open at Muirfield, where he won two of his three claret jugs. Faldo won his first major in the 1987 British Open by making 18 pars in the final round. He won at Muirfield in 1992 by blowing a four-shot lead at the turn and finishing birdie-par for a one-shot victory.
