Kisner first round leader in benign Open conditions

Jordan Spieth at The Open

Woods made three straight birdies from the 9th-11th holes and now sits just one off the lead.

SHOT OF THE DAY: How about this magic from Spieth?

The last of his 14 majors came at the U.S. Open in 2008. He missed an 8-footer on No. 5 for the outright lead.

Rose finished almost three hours before the leaders teed off, and was at 4 under for the tournament, two shots off the lead held by Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner.

He was tied for 29th, six strokes behind leaders Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner.

Zach Johnson, whose name already is on the claret jug from his playoff victory at St. Andrews three years ago, played in the morning under an umbrella and finished with a 30-foot birdie putt for a 67.

Fleetwood holds the course record at Carnoustie after shooting a 63 here past year, and Friday's effort is the best ever for the second round of a British Open on the notoriously tough Scottish links. The group of 39 includes a Xander (Schauffele) and a Zander (Lombard), the latter a 23-year-old South African with one previous major participation in his life, yet who briefly held a share of the lead in the second round before two bogeys, and said: "Yeah, it was pretty cool".

Woods said he felt good on the practice range prior to his round in the afternoon and remarked that he couldn't really blame the neck problem for his play, except with his swing from time to time.

Novichok victim Charlie Rowley leaves hospital
Wilkinson said that while Rowley had been discharged, it was a "day tinged with sadness for everyone" as they remembered Sturgess. Investigators said last week that they had identified the small bottle found in Rowley's home as the source of the poison.

Carnoustie is still waiting on the one element that defines a strong test at the British Open: the wind.

However, Woods was far from downbeat about his chances with the sunny weather due to take a turn for the worse and with his innate ability to play links golf better than many of his rivals.

Tiger went one-under on the back nine to get back to even par. He made another bogey on the next hole, and just like that he was on the cut line.

It wasn't easy on everyone. 1 ranked player in the world, and Justin Thomas, ranked No. 2, missed the cut.

It took a chunk out of Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, the Nos. He was nine shots behind Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner, who shared the lead at Carnoustie on 6-under 136.

The way golf has been going the last few years, it would be reasonable to see the name "Johnson" atop the leaderboard and assume it belonged to the No. 1 player in the world. If he could prop up Woods and Mickelson, and increase the odds of a Rory vs. Rickie vs. Jordan final-round showdown by dropping one into Barry Burn, hey, by all means - burn, baby, burn.

Rose began by smashing driver into the left rough, although he was able to hit wedge to 6 feet for birdie.
