The third day of the 2013 British Open is in the books, but there's still much to be decided at Muirfield before a champion can be crowned.
At this stage, it looks to be a three-man race for the title, as Lee Westwood sits just ahead of Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods, but there's a group of five other golfers nipping at their heels close behind.
So far, the course has been unpredictably fast at times, and has made for some rather low scores through the first three rounds. Regardless, Westwood has managed to string together an impressive three-round run, and sits comfortably in the lead at three under.
Here's an updated look at the leaderboard, as well as analysis on the exciting day of golf in Scotland.

On Saturday, Lee Westwood continued to perform exceptionally well at Muirfield, and managed to put some space between himself and the rest of the pack.
Woods started well, bagging a birdie on No. 2, but Westwood upped the ante not long after. That's when the Brit notched an eagle on the fifth hole, thus giving him sole position of the lead, but Tiger wasn't done.
After watching Westwood hold the lead for much of the afternoon, Tiger clawed back and earned a share at two under, but things didn't fall into place for the World No. 1 down the stretch, as he picked up a bogey on No. 17.
Now, with Tiger, Westwood and the surging Hunter Mahan all within arm's reach of one another, Sunday will present us with a compelling finish to what has been a very unpredictable major.
Not far behind are Henrik Stenson, Ryan Moore, Adam Scott and Round 1 leader Zach Johnson, who bounced back slightly after a rough outing on Friday.
Regardless of who wins, there will be some big names in the hunt for the Open Championship on Sunday, as 40-year-old Lee Westwood hopes to hold off the competition in hopes of winning his first major.
