Jordan Spieth Bounces Back From Tough Finish, Shoots 67 at The Open

  • Kevin Kisner hits a bunker shot on the 18th hole at the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Club

Fleetwood, the top player on the European Tour a year ago, put together the best round of the week at Carnoustie with a 65.

He was three shots behind the leaders, who had yet to tee off in the afternoon at Carnoustie.

The way golf has been going, it would be reasonable to see the name "Johnson" atop the leaderboard and assume it belonged to the top-ranked player.

Late starter Tiger Woods, who shot even-par 71, was among those who had to deal with a breeze that finally freshened long after most players were safely tucking into their evening fish and chips.

Woods will be at Carnoustie for the weekend, though, with the cut projected at 2 over.

The light rain from overnight never let up.

Johnson overcame a bogey on the opening hole with birdies on the third and fourth holes, and he never put himself under too much pressure the rest of the way.

As for that other Johnson?

The Englishman scraped into the weekend when he holed a testing 12-foot putt at the last for his only birdie of the second round to make the cut with nothing to spare, after the only two players ahead of him in the world rankings, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, had both crashed out.

Instead, it floated out of the yellow grass to the right, bounced off the base of the rock wall that frames the winding stream and led to a double bogey.

Zach Johnson (67) surged through the field in cold, wet conditions at Carnoustie to share top spot on six-under with fellow American Kevin Kisner, while Dustin Johnson was packing his bags after missing the cut on 148, six over. That hasn't kept the casual fan from occasionally calling Zach by the wrong name.

"But in the air, I knew it was on a line that was going to be on the green and most likely a par, which is all I was looking for".

"Everyone acts like this is the first time I've been bandaged up".

Zach Johnson, Kisner, Spieth and Fowler are sharing a house down the street from the course with a private chef cooking them meals and massage therapists on duty. In the power era of golf, he is more of a pistol than a cannon. Tommy Fleetwood fires a 65, putting the Carnoustie course record holder (63) just one back at 5 under.

Tiger Woods still has work to do after a rugged start, good recovery and then a mix of birdies and bogeys that left him stuck in neutral on a better day for scoring.

As well as the two 25-foot putts he rolled in, he was also happy with only dropping one shot in the closing four holes - a grueling stretch he describes as a "slog".

"Under those conditions, I would have taken that score today going out", McIlroy said. "I've been doing this for years...braces and bandages, just that this time it's actually visible". "So a lot more irons off tees and a lot more conservative, but ended up being the same score".

Spieth began the day one one-over after dropping four shots in his last four holes on Thursday, but started heading up the leaderboard with a stroke of magic on the third - chipping in from off the green for a birdie.
