Chris Wood closing in on leaders with hot round

Defending champion Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Kevin Chappell are three shots back at 3-under.

McIlroy produced a couple of stunning approaches on his way to a two-under 69 at Carnoustie, while Woods drained a long-range birdie and Spieth nailed a string of impressive putts to move up the leaderboard.

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

Asked what he has learned from the likes of Johnson, who won the 2015 British Open, or Spieth, who owns three major championships, while at the house, Kisner said: "I learned that everybody's going through the same stuff and trying to shoot the lowest score possible, and everybody puts their trousers on the same way I do. He hit some incredible shots and just picked his way around the course well".

Player contested a record 46 consecutive Opens, lifting the Claret Jug in the 50s, 60s and 70s, but Lyle, who also won the Masters in 1988, famously finding the green from a fairway bunker on the 18th - which is known in the British Isles as the "Sandy Lyle bunker" - and making birdie, hinted that he may even try to get into a future Open field through regional qualifying. With his wrist injury long-forgotten and second U.S. Open crown on the shelf, that's hardly the case this week.

"Hopefully, I'll have another chance to prove that I can do it here, " Kisner said.

He said: "This is a young kid who's still one of the best players in the world".

'The more you do that, the more experience you gain, and from there it's only a matter of time'. "How many tournaments has he won, 20?" "It's a pretty safe assumption".

Zach Johnson has more than held his own. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson each will begin Saturday's round six shots back after shooting even par over the first two days.

It was a spirited effort in some less-than-spirited weather, with an annoying steady rain falling throughout the morning session.

On a British Open leader board with big names - Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson, the considerably rising Tommy Fleetwood - the biggest name in the game had an uneven trip to even par and remained in the leader-board suburbs.

Fleetwood shot a brilliant 63 in the final round of the US Open last month to finish runner-up behind Brooks Koepka and McIlroy believes he is now ready to take the next step. "But to be a part of history was really cool".

"You're only going to ever get to play the first time with him once, and that was mine", Knox said. "You're on the toughest test in golf".

The betting favorite to win the British Open? "I've never been anywhere near [winning it] before".

"If I win next week, then I'll be back again", Lyle added.
