Golf: Benson and Hedges International Open from St Mellion.
Nick Faldo, who made a disappointing attempt at winning his third US Masters title in Augusta last month, has returned to European Tour action in this tournament. The world No 1 was only one shot off the play-off which decided last year's event, when Australian Peter Senior beat Zimbabwe's Tony Johnstone. Faldo topped the Order of Merit last season and has already been victorious on the European Tour this year, winning the Johnnie Walker Classic in Singapore in February.
Other 1993 Tour winners hoping to be in contention in today's third round are Mark James, David Gilford, Sam Torrance and Frenchman Jean Van de Velde. Previous winners of this tournament, Sandy Lyle and Jose Maria Olazabal, are also expected to mount a serious challenge.
Commentary by Peter Alliss, Bruce Critchley, Alex Hay, Clive Clark, Mike Hughesdon and Dougie Donnelly.
