The last time Greg Norman won the British Open was back in 1993. Fifteen years later, he's on the verge of winning it once again.
Norman shot a +2 over in the third round at Royal Birkdale and is +2 over for the tournament. He has a two shot lead over K.J. Choi and defending champion Padraig Harrington heading into Sunday's final round. Simon Wakefield is also in the hunt at +5 and four others are tied at +7.
Should he hold on to win on Sunday, the 53-year-old Norman would become the oldest player ever to win a major championship.
