Zach Johnson, Kevin Kisner share lead at British Open

They share the lead in the British Open.

Woods has been plagued by knee and back injuries and dealt with personal problems including a marriage breakup since winning the last of his 14 majors a decade ago.

Woods and Fleetwood are among a gaggle of players who are four shots behind joint-leaders Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner and it is the 27-year-old Englishman that Jacklin fancies to pick up the trophy. "It's kind of a dream come true just to have the opportunity".

Woods feels the same way.

But the Salt Lake City native will return to the British Open for more golf on Saturday, having safely made the cut in another major championship.

He didn't have the best score.

"A four-shot deficit will be nothing tomorrow, especially if the wind blows".


McIlroy was particularly perturbed by his meek display in the final round of the Masters in April, which he started three shots off the lead and was only one back after two holes.

"I've shown that I've been there close enough with a chance to win this year", Woods said.

From Wood to Woods: Tiger Woods is on the practice range at the moment hitting a few. I didn't know if that would ever happen again, but here I am with a chance in a major. "It's going to be fun". It sounded like a Woods victory march as he strode to the green to complete a memorable round, and who knows what Sunday has in store when the winds are supposed to blow.

However, Guardiola has been unable to attend the Open this year at Carnoustie due to pre-season commitments with the Premier League champions.

With the leaders still on the course, Woods' deficit will stretch, but he will be in contention come Sunday. He sent it bouncing and rolling along the firm turf, down a hill and onto the green to about 10 feet away for an eagle.

Late Friday, Justin Rose stood over a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole needing to sink it to make the cut. A par on the 18th would have given him a two-stroke lead over Zach Johnson, already in the clubhouse.

"It's absolutely insane to think so many people can follow a person", Norris said. For three magical hours the three-time Open champion played like he'd never drifted into the dark competitive hole that's defined his last few years. Even American playing partner Shaun Norris got swept along by Woods-mania. The man catching the eye the most is beyond a doubt Chris Wood: the man from Bristol has had six birdies today already and he's only just played the tenth. He started his move with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, followed with short birdie putts on the next two holes and with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 14th, he put his name atop the leaderboard.
