Tiger roars up leaderboard as 3 tie for lead at Open Championship

22 July, 2018, 04:52 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

But not necessarily at the British Open.

Zach Johnson - not Dustin - already has his name on the claret jug.

Tiger Woods started Round 3 six shots back of the lead, tied for 29th place at the British Open at Carnoustie.

Bad weather and Rory McIlroy have not made easy bedfellows in the past, but the Northern Irishman was stoic under the deluge to lay down a serious marker at Carnoustie.

Johnson was at 6-under 136 and had to wait to see if it would hold up.

Kisner is a newcomer to what amounts to an American fraternity house at golf's oldest championship the last three years.

Tiger Woods is making a move on moving day.

On Friday, he looked to the failed birdie at the par-5 sixth, a missed 7-footer at the 18th and 32 putts total.

Woods will be at Carnoustie for the weekend, though, with the cut projected at 2 over. The steady, light rain made them a little slower and a lot more predictable.

The only time he was under par for his round was after a 5-iron easily cleared the Spectacle bunkers on the par-5 14th and rolled onto the green to a front pin, leaving him an 18-foot eagle putt.

Low scores are gettable today at The Open Championship.

As for that other Johnson?

But the three-time Open champion did endure some tricky final holes.

The U.S. Open champion started the third round five shots off the lead but is 4 over for the day after three bogeys on the front nine and a double-bogey at the par-4 12th.

Finau is tied for 13th and five shots off the lead heading into the major's final round Sunday. That hasn't kept the casual fan from occasionally calling Zach by the wrong name. "Even when you think you've got it, it'll come up and bite you". "I've been called Dustin many times". One golfer has ever accomplished that in the modern era, and he's now four back of Spieth at this event.

Pep Guardiola has picked Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood as his favourites to win The Open this weekend along with a having a watchful eye on Rafael Cabrera-Bello.

Fleetwood, ranked No 10 in the world, has a knack of producing his best form on the course regarded as one of the toughest in links golf - last October he broke the course record here with a 63 during the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. They were last together three weeks ago when Woods presented him the trophy at the Quicken Loans National after Molinari shot 62 for an eight-shot victory. His approach shot was within 12 feet of the hole, but he left his par putt an inch short.

"Under those conditions, I would have taken that score today going out", McIlroy said.

Dustin Johnson wasn't alone in his struggle.

Sunday at Carnoustie is setting up to be a properly scrummy affair, as 19 largely capable players sit within five shots of the trio of leaders that includes the defending champion.

Saturday was one of the gentlest days in recent British Open history, and the result was a birdie-fest that let players charge from deep in the field toward the top of the leaderboard.
