Creamer holds on to three-shot lead

But Creamer's win is anything but finalized. There are 16 other players who have a legitimate chance of winning the Open this afternoon, most notably Ward (+2), Suzann Pettersen (+3), Natalie Gulbis (+3), In Kyung Kim (+5), Sophie Gustafson (+5) and Cristie Kerr (+5).

With only one 69 all week (Brittany Lang) and a few rounds of 70, the winning score will still likely be over par. So the key for Creamer, who is currently one under par, is to play conservatively (ie, consistently drive it in the fairway, hit greens and two putt for par). Listen to what she had to say just after she walked off the 18th green (and just before she began tuning up for the final round).
