Graeme McDowell, @Graeme_McDowell: "Not sure I love Peter Alliss commentary on golf these days. When its goes "off-piste" to other stuff he's very funny but his golf stuff...."

McDowell: "Problem with commentators in any sport is they are paid to be opinionated. I guess as a player you won't always love the opinion you hear."

Ian Poulter, @IanJamesPoulter: "Alarm was set for 10am, tee time 1.55, late breakfast was had, watched some early morning coverage. White watch tartan, #WearTheTrousers"

Poulter: "The crowds have been fantastic this week at @The_Open so respectful & truly amazing to play in front of. Love this tournament it's a grind."

Poulter: "Played really nice again today a couple of bogey's at 16 & 18 were a real shame. Still have a chance tomorrow. Never say never. #TheOpen"

Jason Dufner, @JasonDufner: "This guy is playing bad cop at the Open Championship this week. Nobody getting by Simon this week."

Paul Lawrie, @PaulLawriegolf: ' “@Alsayedmojo: @PaulLawriegolf you oright paul, any chance of changing your putter !!” Why? Had the most single putts of anyone this week'

Lawrie: - On the range yesterday morning working on smoother changeover

Zach Johnson, @ZachJohnsonPGA: "Eternal perspective. #JesusExample RT @lolojones: I don't have a "Haters list" I have a forgiveness one.
