University of Virginia graduate Steve Marino started the day Saturday with a share of the lead in the British Open, and then in his words “Bam! I'm like 8 over on the round."

Marion would right the ship and birdie the final two holes winding up with a 6-over-par 76 Saturday. He’s now +1, five shots back of Tom Watson.

But it is the manner in which Marino got to that point -- stumbling badly on the front nine, righting himself, stumbling even more dramatically on the 15th and 16th holes, and then coming back again -- that will make Saturday such a memorable experience for the ACC golfer of the day.

"I'm really proud of the way I responded," Marino said. "That could have gotten real ugly, real quick."
