Francesco Molinari became the first Italian to win a major, holding off a pack of star names to claim The Open Championship at Carnoustie. Throwing caution aside after starting the day six strokes behind, Woods wielded his driver aggressively and was rewarded with six birdies in the first 14 holes.
Jordan Spieth plays his shot from the 18th tee during the third round of The Open Championship golf tournament at Carnoustie Golf Links.
A victory would complete a most remarkable comeback for Woods, who has had four back surgeries, a marital scandal and a DUI arrest since his last major. "Hopefully, I can go out and play well again (Saturday), and then that will be a big chance going into Sunday". "I've had a career's worth in a few years", said Spieth, who admitted he found it "difficult" to hand over the Claret Jug when he arrived in Carnoustie on Monday. Woods went from 7 under and leading to 4 under and not leading in a hurry.
Tiger Woods moved to within one stroke of The Open lead following a fine start to his final round.
"I'm right there", he said. His first two holes were steady, if nothing else, with Woods at par through three.
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. In a previous life, back-nine leads at majors always ended with Tiger hoisting some sort of trophy.
In Carnoustie conditions that were flawless for low scoring until a brisk breeze sprang up just as Spieth was finishing, the 24-year-old Texan drove the first green and sank a 12-footer before adding four birdies for a six-under-par 65.
The PGA champion took three to get out of a pot bunker from the fairway on the par-5 sixth hole, making the first of three straight double bogeys.
Rose had needed a birdie on the final hole on Friday night to even make the cut, but he produced seven birdies and no bogeys on his way to a stunning 64, lifting him to 4-under-par, five off the pace.
"I feel like I've been improving each day (but) I know as well as anyone that anything can happen at an Open on Sunday".
A bogey on the 10th slowed his charge and although he responded with a long birdie on 11 he lipped-out a three-footer for par on the 13th and surrendered another shot at the 15th after another visit to a sand trap.
"But I made that eagle on 14 and played the last four really solid, parred the last four, so it was a good bad round, I guess". "I was very, very fortunate that it got far enough down there where I had a full wedge into the green".
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. It was his lowest score at the British Open by two shots, and at the end of the day, Rose was in a tie for 13th.
