Spieth cards 65 to share lead with Schauffele and Kisner

Tiger Woods in the hunt and loving it at The Open

A charging Tiger Woods was breathing down the necks of the leaders early in his final round of an absorbing British Open at Carnoustie on Sunday. He started his move with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, followed with short birdie putts on the next two holes and with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 14th, he put his name atop the leaderboard.

The tone was set when Spieth drove the first green on the 380-yard par four and holed from 12 feet for eagle on his way to a bogey-free 65 to finish nine under par, a total matched by compatriots Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner.

It lasted only two holes but there was no mistaking the roars and whoops from the packed galleries, as Tiger Woods briefly held a share of The Open Championship lead yesterday.

On a day when Woods electrified the gallery with a 66 that pulled the 14-major victor within four strokes of the lead, Spieth, with three majors already, showed again that he is the man to beat of the next generation.

Asked about becoming the first Englishman to win a British Open in 26 years, Fleetwood said, "It would be very special. I need to go get it", Woods said.

Spieth, who started the day in a three-way share of the lead with Kisner and Shauffele, crashed with a 76 to wind up equal ninth a further stroke back with USA countrymen Tony Finau (71) and last year's runner-up Matt Kuchar (72).

"I felt like it kept me in the fight", Woods said. His first two holes were steady, if nothing else, with Woods at par through three.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland - Justin Rose went all of Friday without making a birdie, finally getting one to fall on the 18th hole to make the 36-hole cut on the number at The Open.

He won the last of his 14 majors a decade ago since when he has been written off after a battle with injuries and personal problems.




Molinari emerged from a six-way tie for the lead, when all the players were either on the back nine or in the clubhouse, to lift the Claret Jug.

"I'm right there. I've got a chance at this, which is great".

Frenchman Jean van der Velde began the day five shots clear of the field and still led by three as he walked onto the 18th.

"I got a couple of good breaks but I wouldn't say I drew on anything except the adjustments I've made during the week in my game to feel more comfortable over the ball".

"I think I played it out at Augusta in my head".

Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy was another to struggle, dropping two shots in his opening seven holes to drop back to three-under, six off the leaders.

"I'm playing golf for me now".

After shooting 71 on Saturday to start the final round eight strokes off the lead, Pepperell said he was "so frustrated" and had "too much to drink last night". He shot his best round in a Major and matched the lowest score in Carnoustie's Open history, a flawless seven-under 64 that rocketed him up the leaderboard on 209.
