Early birds catch a few worms this morning, greedy Lee grabs an eagle too.

The leaders were back out early this morning at the Belfry to finish off their third round before the final round of the British Masters. The likes of Westwood had eight holes left, the defending champion starting with a putt on the 2nd green. He made his par then but continued the great little burst of form he showed in his last few holes last night. On the next hole for him, the Par Five 3rd, he recorded his second eagle of the round. Two birdies on 5&6 followed to take him from 3 under after bogeying 1,2 and 3 yesterday afternoon to 10 under going into the final round.

Kiwi Michael Campbell, who has recently gone away from getting his swing analysed to destruction and is now just relying on his own feel for his swing and is reaping the rewards, had four left to play. Lying 7 under overnight, co-leader Campbell birdied 15, 16 and 17 to join Westwood at ten under after three rounds.

This pair are three clear of Gonzalo Fernandez Castano and Jeev Milka Singh. It's gone from being a very open tournament before the morning started to looking like a shoot-out between Westwood and Campbell, both looking very good today. But as Charl Schwartzel showed yesterday with his amazing front nine 29 it's possible to go very low at the Belfry, so it's not beyond the realms of possibility that someone could post a great target for the leaders to chase.

Due to the delays caused by fog all week, they'll be going round in three's today but it will still be a late finish no matter what happens.
