The Open 2011: Darren Clarke adds sparkle on a gloomy Sandwich

Darren Clarke overcomes the early downcast conditions at Royal St George's to take a one-shot lead into the final round on Sunday.

The 42-year-old escaped some brutal morning weather and fired a one-under 69 to move to five under.

American Dustin Johnson finished the day second second after sharing the joint best round of the day, a 68, with countryman Rickie Fowler.
