Jordan Spieth takes share of lead into final day the Open

Tiger Woods, British Open

"My hair had gotten a little long and I needed to get a haircut, so I did this morning", Spieth explained in his postround press conference. With no less than 15 players within two shots of the current lead, midway through third round, the battle for the Claret Jug promises to be tight and tense and Woods is in the thick of it. Spieth, who finished tied for the lead at 9 under.

"It's no course record, but it will do for today".

"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".

However, in an event he has won three times, most recently in 2006, the old fire returned on the Scottish links to reward the packed gallery of spectators following him. "I've never been anywhere near before, but for two rounds I'm up there on the leaderboard".

The world number three capped off a flawless performance with birdies at the final two holes, running in a 12-footer at the last for the lowest round of the championship. Fleetwood shares third place with Pat Perez and Xander Schauffele. When he arrived for the second round to be greeted by constant rain he changed that philosophy. "I didn't feel fully confident in my swing".

It was every bit of that on Saturday, a rare day when Carnoustie had little defense.

"There were a few shots I hit poorly out there". We may go back looking at this round and this week as the spot where Simpson locked up his position on the Ryder Cup. There were times when the 42-year-old was playing as he had in his peak, back when it was his sport and everyone else was there just to make up the numbers. The last two Opens at Carnoustie have ended with the victor coming from down 10 strokes (Paul Lawrie, 1999) and six strokes (Padraig Harrington, 2007) down entering the final day. It's like playing with a mythical creature.

Offshoring has hurt workers and begun to erode the technological advantage that the US has long enjoyed, the union wrote. The probe covers imports of automobiles, including SUVs, vans and light trucks, as well as auto parts.

McIlroy also feels there is also room for improvement in terms of the quality of his play.

"He said earlier this week the British Open was probably his best chance to win a major again, the way the course is set up, but if the wind starts to blow as hard as it is forecast, it will make all the players think a lot more".

"I don't think so", Spieth said.

Is it Jordan Spieth? I felt like it was a typical setup for a moving day today.

Having carved a shot into a bank of rough he attempted a raking hook with the ball above his feet at nearly waist height but it came out low and hard and skirted inches away from the packed gallery he had only just asked to move back a couple of yards.

Schauffele birdied five, six and seven on his way to a 67, bouncing back from a bogey at the 17th with a birdie at the last to take a share of the lead going into the final day.

However, the pair were quickly usurped by 2015 champion golfer of the year Johnson, who moved to six under for the tournament with a 67 which included a vital birdie on the last. A bogey-less round would follow, stringing birdies while much of the people at Carnoustie were paying attention to Tiger Woods vaulting up the leaderboard.
