Golf:Justin Rose was the big mover amongst the morning starters in the third round of the USPGA at Kiawah Island as five birdies in his first 11 holes saw the English golfer move to one under for the tournament.

Rose made par at the opening three holes before picking up his first birdie at the par-four fourth.

He made a three at the short fifth before reeling off three straight birdies from the sixth. A par on the ninth saw him turn in 32 and he dipped under par with a further gain on the 10th.

Fellow Englishman David Lynn birdied three of his first five holes to move to level par, while two birdies in his opening four holes saw Australia’s Geoff Ogilvy also get back to level.

Darren Clarke is level par through 15 holes of his third round and remains on five over, while Pádraig Harrington made a par on the first as his third round got underway and remains on two over.

Graeme McDowell gets his third round underway at 7.10pm alongside Phil Mickelson, with both players on level par, while Rory McIlroy is off at 7.40pm alongside Irish Open winner Jamie Donaldson of Wales. They lie two shots off the lead on two under.
