Former Open champion Darren Clarke’s new fitness regime meant he marked his best round of the week with a gym session and a couple of glasses of wine.

In the past the Northern Irishman would probably have washed down his 67 with plenty of Guinness, although not nearly as much as when he won the Claret Jug at Sandwich in 2011.

Instead the newly slimmed-down 45-year-old left Royal Liverpool and headed for the gym to reflect on his five-under total which, although being highly unlikely to allow him to win tomorrow, could propel him towards his highest major finish since his victory in 2011.
