Heavy rain did not deter spectators from turning out in force to watch an historic third day of the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.
With an amber weather warning in place for heavier rain and potential thunderstorms the R&A made the unprecedented decision to operate a two-tee start for the first time in the tournament's long and illustrious history.
It meant all 72 players were on the course by 11.01am with Rory McIlroy, currently leading on 12 under. Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler are both currently 9 under.
The Open Championship has instigated a two-tee start for the first time in its history because of the risk of thunderstorms.
Players are using both the first and 10th tee, with the field split into groups of three rather than two.
