British Open 2019: How to View Sunday’s Live Leaderboard Scores, Updates

CLick here To Watch Live STream

There’s still time for some major shakeups at The Open championship.

While Shane Lowry owned a four-stroke lead as he entered Sunday’s final round of this year’s British Open at 16 under par, there were numerous other golfers not far behind. Tommy Fleetwood entered at 12 under par, JB Holmes was 10 under and 14 golfers were separated by only three strokes behind Holmes at the start of play.

Of the top seven golfers on the leaderboard entering the final round, only two were former majors champions—Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose.

With action underway at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland, live updates can be seen on the leaderboard at TheOpen.com.

Need proof that Lowry’s lead may not be safe on Sunday? Look no further than the last time the Irishman was in this exact same scenario.

At the 2016 U.S. Open, Lowry owned a four-stroke lead entering the final round, but he then shot a six-over 76 and lost to Dustin Johnson by three strokes. Perhaps that prior experience could help Lowry prevent another collapse from happening this weekend.

“It probably doesn’t mean as much to me as it did then, which is going to make it a little bit easier,” Lowry said, according to Golf Digest‘s Ryan Herrington. “I feel like I’m a different person. I don’t think I’m a much different golfer, but I feel like I’m a different person now. I think that’s what will help me.”

Lowry and Fleetwood were the final duo scheduled to tee off on Sunday as they are set to begin at 8:47 a.m. ET/1:47 p.m. BST.

In the pairing that starts 10 minutes before Lowry and Fleetwood are Koepka and Holmes, who will be another interesting duo to watch in the final round. Koepka has won four major tournaments since the start of 2017 and Holmes was tied for the lead with Lowry before the start of the third round.

Although Koepka entered the final round tied for fourth, seven strokes behind Lowry, he may have the best chance of the top contenders to get hot, start performing better on his putts and making a run for his first career win at The Open championship.

Koepka is a former winner at the PGA Championship and U.S. Open, but he has never finished higher than sixth in the British Open.

Another factor that could help Koepka close the gap between him and the golfers ahead of him? The less-than-ideal weather conditions on Sunday.

“I need it,” Koepka said, according to Golfweek’s Dan Kilbridge. “Here you need some wind, you need some rain. You need anything that can kind of go your way. … I’ve struck it so good. If it’s going to be windy, you need to be able to strike it good, control your flight and figure out where you want the ball to end up. If it’s going to blow 30 [mph], it can get out of control very quickly.”

With that being said, it could be any of the top golfers on the leaderboard who will best handle those conditions to emerge victorious with the Claret Jug. And while it’s possible Lowry continues to pull away and quickly thwarts the hopes of those behind him, it’s more likely that things are just going to get interesting and competitive in this final round.

Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman

Pacquiao vs Thurman fight time: Live stream, watch online, Fox PPV price, date, recordLAS VEGAS — Living legend and boxing’s only eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao will look to turn back the clock once again when the 40-year-old steps into the ring with the powerful and unbeaten Keith “One Time” Thurman for Thurman’s WBA (Super) welterweight title under the bright lights of the MGM Grand Garden Arena on pay per view.

Incredible welterweight boxing action returns this weekend as two of the best in the division will clash at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Former eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao will return to the ring, this time squaring off with maybe the most formidable foe that’s stood across from him since his “Fight of the Century” with Floyd Mayweather in WBA titleholder Keith Thurman.

Pacquiao vs Thurman Live Stream Free Signup Tv

Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs), the secondary WBA champ, has shown a bit of a career resurgence as he’s claimed two consecutive victories after his controversial loss to Jeff Horn in 2017. The 40-year-old is once again being considered among the elite in the welterweight division, and a win over Thurman would further cement his status as not only one of the all-time greatest, but the best to still be in action. Thurman, meanwhile, (29-0, 22 KOs) is consistently mentioned within pound-for-pound conversations, and taking down one of the more accomplished fighters of this generation would send a stern message to the rest of the stacked welterweight division.

Also on this card are a pair of the top super middleweights in the world when IBF champion Caleb Plant meets up with Mike Lee in the final prelim fight before moving to PPV. Plant will be looking to make his first defense of the168-pound title he won in January while facing off with another unbeaten challenger in Lee.

For starters, the Filipino (61-7-2, 39 KOs) is a legend of the sport, a world champion in an unprecedented eight divisions who has beaten some of the best boxers of his generation.

Also, thanks to boxing’s patchwork quilt of sanctioning organizations and championship hierarchies, Pacquiao is technically a welterweight world champion going into Saturday night’s pay-per-view fight against Keith “One Time” Thurman.

The undefeated Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) is the “super” champion. He earned that status when he beat Danny Garcia in March 2017. Injuries kept him out of the ring for nearly two years, so the WBA kept the world title chase alive in his absence with the “regular” title.

So Pac Man is a champion, and so is Thurman. The latter has never lost, though, which makes him the man to beat when the two enter the ring Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Thurman’s advantages going into Saturday’s bout are obvious. He’s 10 years younger than Pacquiao, taller with a thicker frame and he has a two-inch reach advantage, (69″ to 67″, per BoxRec). When he’s at his peak, combining a strong jab with thunderous power shots and deft footwork, he can make proceedings lopsided.

But it’s possible we won’t see his peak Saturday. In his return to the ring in January, he spent the first few rounds beating up on a game Josesito Lopez, even scoring a knockdown in the second round.

The fight took a turn in the latter half, with Lopez wobbling Thurman in the seventh and generally making life difficult for him every round after that. In what was supposed to be a tune-up bout, the champion had to settle for a majority decision.

Instead of another tune-up, Thurman jumped at the opportunity to face Pacquiao. He’s made it his mission to get under his skin, saying he will “crucify” the Filipino and referencing his political career, per CBS Sports’ Brian Campbell:

“The more Thurman talks, the more it will help me,” the veteran said, per ESPN’s Dan Rafael. “His words are motivating me and encouraging me to work even harder day after day.”

It’s hardly lightning-rod stuff, but that’s how Pacquiao tends to operate in the twilight of his career. Working with longtime trainer Freddie Roach, he needs to find a way to hit whatever counts for his peak to win Saturday. It’s hard to tell exactly where that is these days, considering Matthysse and his most recent opponent, Adrien Broner, didn’t offer him much resistance.

Pacquiao is a tricky southpaw who can counter a jab better than most and string together combinations. He’s looking to use his speed to create problems against his bigger opponent.

“Better for me, especially if you are going for the body,” Pacquiao said, per the Los Angeles Times‘ Norm Frauenheim.

If Pacquiao can find the vulnerabilities lurking in Thurman’s game the same way Lopez did, he has a good chance at pulling off the victory. He will have to be cautious as he goes about his business, though.

The Filipino has hit the canvas before, and Thurman is going to load up on the big punches if he feels himself falling behind.

However, there’s so much for Thurman to lose Saturday. A defeat will confirm the suspicions of those who believe he lost a step during his injury layoff or that his killer instinct is gone. It will take him out of the lucrative championship circuit, where potential megafights against Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr. and Shawn Porter await (the latter two are booked to fight in September, per The Athletic’s Lance Pugmire).

A win, however, and Thurman gets to tout a victory over a boxing legend as he makes his next move. Pacquiao might hang it up with another loss, but he’s showing few, if any, signs he wants to leave the sport behind. He didn’t do it after his undeserved loss to Jeff Horn in July 2017.

Beating Thurman would give him a chance for a big showdown with the aforementioned titleholders. Pacquiao might just keep fighting until someone in the sport forces him out.
