He won the last of his 14 Majors at the 2008 US Open and has been beset by injuries and personal strife since.

A two-time European Ryder Cup player, he has been in fine form this season with a victory apiece on the European and PGA Tours.

It left him just five shots behind first-round leader Kevin Kisner but considering he tackled a dry-roasted Carnoustie course when it was playing as tough as it had all day it was a serious statement of intent.

So, too, is Rory McIlroy, who shot a second consecutive 2-under-par 69 to stand at 4-under par entering the weekend.

Fellow Englishman Justin Rose failed to make a run on his front nine and dropped a shot at the fifth to slip to three under at the turn.

McIlroy and other players on the leaderboard are keeping an eye on the notoriously fickle Scottish weather going into the final round. Schauffele has two holes remaining. The 42-year-old American is bidding to win his first major for a decade.

Why is Tiger Woods wearing KT tape?

Jordan Spieth has a share of the lead in the British Open and a big edge in experience.

"I played well today", Woods said.

American Zach Johnson described the last four as "nasty good" on Friday while Colin Montgomerie says the finish is the "most demanding" on the Open rosta, if not anywhere.

Pepperell teed off at 11.40 a.m. local time with Phil Mickelson. He might have to swing for the fences after the way he finished Saturday at the British Open.

What followed was a horror show as Van der Velde's second shot ricocheted off a grandstand into rough and his third ended up in Barry Burn.

Adam Scott chips onto the green on the 15th.

He shot 77 and missed the cut by one shot. He made three more bogeys, including on the 18th, and that offset the eagle he made on the par-5 14th.

Woods' clubhouse lead lasted only a few minutes before Italian Francesco Molinari, the hottest player in the game recently, carded 65 for six-under.

Tiger Woods surged into contention on the third day of The Open, shooting his lowest round at a major since 2011. Paired with Woods throughout his final round at Carnoustie, Molinari parred his first 13 holes before making a birdie at the par-5 14th hole.

One of those runners-up finishes came after blowing a five-shot lead with nine holes to play in defence of his Masters title, while the fourth place came when he finished a shot outside a three-man play-off for the 2015 Open at St Andrews in pursuit of the third leg of an unprecedented calendar grand slam.

The 37-year-old said: "Momentum wise, birdieing the final hole picking up where I left off last night got me into the round early".
