very surprised. 0ne the cut. if you doesn't i would be very surprised. one person who is going to be there is this man, thorbjorn 0lesen. it warmed up a lot and that made the ball go longer and you have a little one on the fairway now — you didn't get that the last couple of days, so that made it a little bit easier. and then the greens got a lot firmer also, so all of a sudden the past threes played really tough, i thought, because you come in with long irons and it is very difficult to get it close to the hole —— par threes. it wasn't a great day for the dutch golfer, joost louten, who carded a five over round. but it was a good day for him on one hole. the fourth, to be precise, as he scored a hole in one with this six iron. iam i am still trying to do that. arsene wenger has revealed the uncertainty over his coaching future towards the end of last season caused his arsenal dressing room to become unsettled.

but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello there. thursday was a fine day for most of us. and the weekend isn't looking too bad either. we just have friday to get through first. because things will be turning increasingly cloudy. we'll see some outbreaks of rain. in fact, already, some wet weather already in north—western areas. an area of low pressure sliding across the north of the british isles. tightly squeezed isobars — notice the white lines quite tightly packed. that shows us that the winds will be strong. gales at times, with areas of rain working from west to east. gales at times across areas of scotland, with areas of rain working from west to east. but for the midlands,
eastern england, in the south and the south—east, it'll start off dry and bright, and will stay that way for good parts of the day. cloud only very slowly increasing from the west. so even by 4pm in the afternoon, for east anglia, down to the south—east, there should be some sunshine around. 22—23 degrees is possible. mainly fine for the channel islands. just a bit of patchy rain creeping in here. that patchy rain continuing to work across the south—west of england. most of it quite light and patchy. perhaps some heavier bursts for coasts and hills. similar story there across wales. 16 degrees in cardiff for the middle of the afternoon. for northern ireland, even though the main area of rain will have cleared away by this stage, there's like to be some cloud left behind, some drizzle. so was true for much of scotland. but to the north, the murray firth, aberdeenshire, they can see some brightness holding on. if that happens, temperatures could get to about 20 degrees. rather cloudy and a little damp across much of northern england. as we go through friday night into the early hours of saturday, the heaviest bursts of rain will have cleared away. but there's still gonna be cloud, mist, murk and drizzle around. not a chilly night by any means, 13—16 degrees.
and for some, it is going to be a struggle to clear the cloud away during saturday morning. the frontal systems really dragging their heels, particularly across the south of the british isles. generally speaking, high pressure takes charge of the scene for the weekend, which means it will be largely dry, with some spells of sunshine. as you can see, though, quite a cloudy start for saturday. that cloud struggling to break up too much in southern areas. there'll be the odd spot of drizzle around. but northern england, northern ireland, and scotland, the skies will brighten. we'll see some spells of sunshine and perhaps a shower for scotland, north—east england. temperatures nothing to write home about, but in the sunshine it won't feel too bad. and with high pressure right on top of the country on sunday, it should be mainly fine day. good spells of sunshine, and you would be unlucky to get a shower, 16—22 degrees. so, quieter through the weekend, but things will turn unsettled again into the start of next week, with rain at times, particularly in the north—west. welcome to bbc news,
