McDowell, who opened with a 68 before struggling to a 77 on Friday, goes into Sunday's final round on four under.

He lies 11 shots behind tournament leader Adam Scott who is 15 under par and holds a three-stroke advantage.

American Keegan Bradley is second on 12 under par.

McDowell is in a share of 19th place while his fellow Northern Irishman Darren Clarke missed the cut by seven shots after a second-round 78 left him nine over.
