Golf The Open: Brit of a disaster forFaldo and Co.

BRITISH hopes of an Open winner melted in the St Andrew's sun as Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie crashed out of contention yesterday.

Both men trudged off the famous Old Course after a disastrous third day even though conditions were perfect. Faldo dumped his second shot of the day into the Swilken Burn and eventually slumped to a three-over par 75.

That left him way behind the leaders on level par overall and he moaned: "It was a demoralising start and after that I steadied down into mediocrity."

Monty fared little better after a double bogey put him out of contention at three under. His round wasn't helped by a male streaker who performed a double somersault in front of him - and he snapped: "I've got to work out my putting. If I could not see a way out of it, I'd give up, and I'm not giving up."

Lee Westwood ended up on level par - miles away from the leaders.
