Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, Amazing Grace. October 06 2012

Branden Grace  (Getty Images) Branden Grace/getty images Branden Grace unsurprisingly will have a four shot lead when he stands on the first tee for the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Branden has been dominant in this tournament since the first round, on Saturday had a -3 under par round at Carnoustie, giving him a tournament total of -20 under par. Branden referred to the name Carnasty, a name that arose during the 1999 Open when the rough was some of the thickest ever seen and a  then 19-year-old Sergio Garcia finished last on +30 over par; "I didn't play particularly well. There were loose shots here and there, but this course mentally does it to you. I kept fighting, got it around and finishing with a birdie is a bonus. Everybody calls it " Carnasty"  and it showed you still have to hit good shots. I've dreamt of picking any trophy up on that bridge on the 18th at St Andrews, so maybe this time tomorrow it happens." Another South African, Major winner Ernie Els is full of praise for his countryman Branden; "He's good enough to win an Open, he's that good. I remember winning the 2007 South African Open and he was top amateur, he's always been a quality player and he's a world contender now. His game is so suited for links golf,  he hits those low bullet drives and he can really putt." The ever-present Thorbjorn Olesen is four shots adrift of the leader after his third round of -4 under par 68 at the Kingsbarns course and has a mountain to climb if he wants to lift this trophy. The final round on Sunday will be played at St Andrews, the home of golf, and I can not see anyone but Branden Grace achieving his dream and lifting that trophy on the Swilcan Burn Bridge.
