Former Champion Leads the Way at Carnoustie

Then, on the short par-four 11th, Woods struck a attractive tee shot and got up-and-down from just left of the green, using the putter twice.

On Sunday, Tiger Woods will contend for his 15th major golf championship after a remarkable performance on day three at the British Open. He had spent a third round in placid conditions by the North Sea making a steep, brisk climb.

The Englishman's seven-under-par round was capped with birdies at the 17th and 18th, the latter after a stunning approach, as he equalled the lowest round in an Open on the Scottish links.

At the British Open in Carnoustie, Scotland, today, the golfer proved that he's still got life left in him with one of his best performances in the past decade - putting himself in position to pick up his first major victory since 2008.

By then, it looked like the big thing was just bragging.

"Like Russell Knox said, it's like playing with a mythical creature". I still feel like I'm not playing badly, but I guess my game just didn't show up this week. At the moment, he's two shots off the lead, which belongs to Kevin Kisner.

Locke, a protege of 1999 Open champion Paul Lawrie, shot a two-over-par 73 in his second round to make it just inside the cut on three-over.

Woods shoots 66, Simpson in contention with -4 round
Like he'd never been sidelined by an endless collection of injuries and eventually sought relief under the surgeon's knife. From Wood to Woods: Tiger Woods is on the practice range at the moment hitting a few.

Jacklin, who together with Shelby Yastrow has written a fictional book entitled Bad Lies, which is available on Amazon, said the victor would be decided by who best handles the treacherous four closing holes at the fearsome par-71 Carnoustie layout, on the east coast of Scotland.

When Woods finished, he stood at 5 under through three rounds, the leader in the clubhouse and two shots behind the in-progress scores set by the rising Americans Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner, and one shot behind a cluster that included Spieth and kept changing shape and size.

Nine players are within four strokes of the lead, and even that might not be enough of a cushion for the leaders.

It was there for only 20 minutes. "I would imagine it's going to be more of a grind all day", he said of the final round.

"I didn't know if I carried it or not, if it was in the hazard or rough". "It won't be too far out of reach". He's not out of contention by any means, but even matching his best score of the week (67) would require Spieth and Schauffele to give strokes back in order to hoist the Claret Jug for the second time.

"He hits more greens and fairways than most of the others". 6 and 14) on Saturday. 4, 9 (with a 30-foot putt), 10, 11 (with a stress-free two-putt from 95 feet) and 14 (with another stress-free two-putt). It was a very strong round of golf, and I hit a lot of good golf shots. Woods' iron off the tee looked near ideal but just barely caught the slope to the right of the green and fell into a collection area.

"It certainly is possible", Woods said. If I can get on a run or get off to a fast start in the next couple of days, I definitely see something like a 66 or a 65. That was above my normal level, and then you sort of - you go back down, and then you build yourself back up again.
