Brian Harman survives shaky start, leads Open Championship by 5

HOYLAKE, England -- American Brian Harman's lead didn't get any bigger -- but it didn't get any smaller, either -- after the third round of the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Harman, who is seeking his first major championship victory, leads by 5 strokes over Cameron Young and 6 over Masters champion Jon Rahm heading into the final 18 holes after he recovered from a couple of early mistakes to card a 2-under 69 on Saturday.

Harman, who is 12 under after 54 holes, will attempt to become only the third left-handed player to win a Claret Jug, joining Bob Charles (1963) and Phil Mickelson (2013).
