All eyes will be on Greystones amateur Paul Dunne today.

The former Blackrock College pupil has shocked the golfing world by taking a share of the lead into the final round of The Open Championship.

He is on 12-under par, alongside Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day.

Dunne is the only player in the field with three rounds in the 60s.

He tees off at 2.30pm this afternoon, alongside playing partner Oosthuizen.

Dunne says he will only take it one hole at a time today:

Harrington feels Dunne deserves all the praise for his performance over the weekend:

Rathfarnham-man Harrington is aiming to win his third Claret Jug today.

He won The Open in 2007 and 2008.

And he feels he can use that experience to his advantage today:
