Underdog Greg Norman atop British Open leaderboard

Underdog Greg Norman atop British Open leaderboard Greg Norman, 53, remains atop of the leaderboard as the final round of the 2008 British Open begins. Norman, who is shooting to become the oldest golfer to win a major championship, finished Day 3 of the British open with two over par and has climbed from 500/1 underdog to 9/4 favorite with the online bookmaker BodogSports.

 Greg Norman has won the British Open twice - in 1986 and 1993 and on Sunday will battle high winds for a possible third victory at the Open. It's also interesting to note that the Australian golfer came to the Royal Birkdale on an extended honeymoon, after marrying tennis star Chris Evert three weeks ago. Norman also claims he now plays more tennis than golf, but his position on the British Open leaderboard proves Norman "still got it". Competition will be Padraig Harrington, who is tied for second place with South Korea's K.J. Choi, holding odds to win the 2008 British Open at 3/1 and 4/1 respectively.
