  1. Goodbye

    Thanks for sticking with us. That third round was pretty dramatic wasn't it?

    You can read our report on all that here.

    We can't wait for the final round now. Will it be a duel between the final pairing, Gary Woodland and Justin Rose, or will some of the other big hitters like Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka come in to play?

    We'll be back here with coverage of the final round at 22:00 BST.

    So you can follow it with us and our friends at BBC Radio 5 Live, from that time. Until then.

  3. 'I played better than my score '

    Woodland -11

    Leader Gary Woodland: "I'm very pleased, I played probably better than my score but I'm happy with where I'm at. Justin Rose is playing great, we had a lot of fun out there together.

    On his escape at the 12th: I didn't hit a perfect shot off the tee and I shanked it actually and from there I was just trying to get it out and give myself a chance at bogey. I got lucky"

    On leading: "You are at a major and leading after three days, so I'm excited with where my game is at and I'm looking forward to Sunday's round. I'm very comfortable with my game and here at Pebble Beach."

  4. 'If I need to be more aggressive, I will be'

    McIlroy -6 (F)

    Rory McIlroy speaking to Sky Sports after finishing the third round six under par, five shots off the lead: "I played well. I did what I wanted to. I hit a lot of fairways, a lot of greens and gave myself a lot of chances.

    "The pins were definitely in trickier positions today. You’re trying to hit in at dead speed to them.

    "For the quality of golf I played I don’t feel I got out of it as much as I should but I’m still in there.I played the par-five holes much better today finding the fairways and when you do that you get chances. I did that today and two of my birdies were on the par fives."

    On what it will take for him to win:

    "Basically need to go out there and not miss a shot and maybe get some momentum early.

    "You can play the first seven holes in three or four under it is possible and I need to just get going from there. I don;t think you can chase too much. So the strategy will be the same but if I need to be more aggressive on the back nine I will do that."

  5. 'I haven't had my A game this week'

    Rose -10 (F)

    Justin Rose, who sits one shot off the lead: "The harder the shot the better I played. I stepped up on certain occassions. A couple of misjudgments with the wind and spin, decent looks at birdie and ending up coming in pars. Five birdies is always great, you can have a mistake out there if you have five birdies on the scorecard.

    "It is probably more of a mental one. I haven't had my A game all week, might not have it tomorrow, and it might be that kind of day where you have to be as mentally strong as you can.

    "No one went super low today but the pins might be a bit tougher tomorrow."

  6. Post update

    It's been a brilliant duel between these two. Rose has outscored Woodland by one shot today but it's the American who leads by one heading into the final round.

  7. Birdie for Rose

    Rose -10, Woodland -11 (18)

    Great finish from Justin Rose. Who sinks a 10-footer right into the heart of the cup. He'll enjoy his tea after seeing that disappear.

    Gary Woodland makes sure with his par putt. It'll be these two out together again on Sunday.

  8. Post update

    Craig Connelly

    PGA & European Tour caddie for BBC Radio 5 live

    I think Rose will knock this putt in, and with some conviction.

  9. Post update

    Rose -9, Woodland -11 (17)

    Gary Woodland hasn't birdied the 18th this week. And he still hasn't as he lips out to a huge gasp from the gallery.

    A slight misread there perhaps?

    Justin Rose splashes out of the bunker to about 10 feet from the cup. Big birdie chance.

  10. Post update

    Rose -9, Woodland -11 (17)

    Talk about risk and reward...

    Justin Rose avoids the branches of the cypress tree in front of him but his fade drifts into the sand trap at the front of the green. If anything that's a decent miss, he should be able to lob on from there.

    Gary Woodland goes safety first, laying up before playing a wispy wedge in to around 10 feet from the pin.

  11. 'I enjoy the pressure'

    Koepka -7 (F)

    World number one Brooks Koepka: "Other than 15 it wasn't a stressful round. If I can avoid stressful rounds then that's the goal every day. I made two birdies from divots so I guess I should keep hitting them in divots.

    "To have it sneak in (for par at 15) felt like a birdie.

    "I enjoy the pressure, enjoy the feelings you have on the golf course. That's fun for me and hopefully I can have that tomorrow.

    "I have got a chance tomorrow."

  12. Post update

    Rose -9, Woodland -11 (17)

    One of the striking things about the 18th hole which is widely recognised as one of the best finishing holes in golf, is a tree slap bang in the middle of the fairway.

    The one that Justin Rose and Gary Woodland will now have to avoid after trickling close to it.

  13. Post update

    Rose -9, Woodland -11 (17)

    It's advantage to Justin Rose on the par-three 203-yard 17th as he lands a six-iron in birdie range. Nothing doing for the 2013 champion though, who has to settle for a par.

    Gary Woodland is on as well, but he's in a different parish, in comparison. Still he gets the same result. He's looking pretty comfortable out there at the moment.

  14. Oosthuizen finishes with par

    Oosthuizen -7 Wise +3 (F)

    Nearly done. Louis Oosthuizen is out with a wedge for his final approach shot of the day.

    It's his third to the par-five 18th green and it clears the bunker guarding the flag to give him a look at a fourth successive birdie. Nope. Staying up. A simple par though and he's just four back as it stands.

    His playing partner is Aaron Wise.

    You may recall the American opened the tournament with a five-under-par 66. No such luck today. He had a quadruple-bogey eight at the par-four ninth and a double bogey on the 15th. It's a par to finish but that's an eight-over 79. Ouch.

  15. Good omen for Rose?

    Rose -9, Woodland -11 (16)

    A possible good omen for Justin Rose or Gary Woodland?

    All five previous US Open champions at Pebble Beach were in either first or second place after 54 holes.

    Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods led, Tom Watson co-led, Graeme McDowell was in second and Tom Kite was tied for second.

  16. Birdie finish for Rory

    McIlroy -6, Reavie -7 (F)

    It's Rory McIlroy to putt first. A touch over 17 feet from the hole but he doesn't get it started on the right line and his ball wanders off to the left.

    A tap-in birdie though and he will sign for a one-under-par 70 that sees him finish on six under par.

    Chez Reavie can't hole out in one either so he closes with a par, but that's a three-under 68 for the American.

  17. Post update

    Rose -9, G Woodland -11 (16)

    With deer now firmly out of shot, presumably not keen to socialise with the crowd following this pairing, Justin Rose nudges his chip on to within a few feet before nailing the sort of slidey putt that most club players have nightmares over.

    Gary Woodland's attempt at birdie is a tad shy of pace, but he tidies up for par.
