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

The 24-year-old Californian burst on to the scene by winning twice in 2017, at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia and at the lucrative, season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Already a two-time major champion with titles at St. Andrews and Augusta National, the 42-year-old from Iowa now has made the cut 12 straight times in the British Open, a streak that began at Carnoustie in 2007.

Kisner, who led after the first round and was a co-leader after the second round, parred his last four holes for a 68. "He is obviously making me more efficient hitting it but more efficient mentally, and understanding who I am". It's been a tough fight-there's only one victor, unfortunately, in golf.

"I played well today, I really really did", he said, via the Guardian.

Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose each made a run with eagles on the par-5 14th hole, McIlroy with a 50-foot putt, Rose with a second shot that bounced off the base of the pin. "No one was yelling at me so I kind of enjoy just hanging back and relaxing".

The No. 72-ranked English golfer hadn't been hopeful ahead of Sunday's round, saying "today was, really, I wouldn't say a write-off, but I didn't feel I was in the golf tournament".

Woods briefly took the lead after putting together two birdies and no bogeys on the front nine on Sunday but, in the end, it was Francesco Molinari's day as Woods finished even on the day and 5-under for the event.

The two players missed chances to take the lead for good but missed short putts on the 17th and 16th holes, respectively, before the Italian grabbed a one-shot advantage with a seven-foot birdie putt on the closing hole.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland There is nothing flashy about Francesco Molinari except for the players he keeps beating. "He hit a lot of attractive little pitches up there to basically kick-ins". He didn't make a bogey on the normally tough Carnoustie links. I figured looking at the board isn't going to do me any good and I was just happy to claw my way back in a little bit.

Woods was at 7 under, in control of his game and hitting shots that only he can. "Incredible to go bogey-free on a course like this".

And yet there he was in the final round, with major champions in front of him and behind him and the biggest one of them all - Woods next to him in a final round so wild that seven players had a share of the lead at various times, and six players were tied on the back nine.

When Schauffele followed Spieth's poor example and carded a double-bogey six at the next hole, the seventh, Woods had the outright lead. It's been five years since Woods' last win and a decade since he won a major. The wind is supposed to pick up a little bit. There were three guys at 9.

McIlroy eagled the 14th from 40 feet as he finished 6-under-par, but it was Molinari who stayed solid, stayed calm and got the job done.

Schauffele, who seemed to be unravelling completely when he went 5-6-6 to drop four strokes in three holes from fifth, rallied impressively with birdies at the tenth and 14th. Rose birdied the 18th all four rounds.

"It's not going to be a day to be aggressive", he said on Saturday night.

"Momentum-wise, birdieing the very first hole, picking up where I left off, got me well into the round". I know he made a couple of putts here and there for par, but to get it to where it was basically kick-in from some of the spots he put himself, that was impressive.
