Woods creates buzz at Carnoustie with 66 at British Open

The Open Why Tiger Woods is battling HISTORY to win at Carnoustie

Woods made a solid par at 17 before flirting with disaster at 18. He is four shots off the lead. "You're in a scenario nearly like the U.S. Open this year at Shinnecock, like that Saturday at the U.S. Open-type scenario".

When the cards settled, Spieth took up his familiar position at the head of the Open, 12 months after that remarkable victory - sparked by an unlikely escape via the practice ground - at Royal Birkdale.

Tiger Woods was level for the day - and overall - through 11 holes, after three birdies and three bogeys, but former world No. 1 Dustin Johnson is nearly certain to miss the cut after finishing six-over.

McIlroy did show his frustration on the 16th after a photographer took a picture as he played a shot but he later insisted that was not a big issue. When he joined the leaders after another birdie at 14, he was tipping his hat to the crowds like it was 2004. He is even par overall.

"Most of the good scores yesterday were in the morning, and they had no wind, and they have very little wind this afternoon with a softer golf course", Woods said.

Then three holes later, Woods two-putted for birdie at No. 14 and there he was, right at the top of the giant yellow leaderboards dotted all around Carnoustie, tied for the lead with five players at 6 under.

"Like Russell Knox said, it's like playing with a mythical creature". He missed an 8-footer on No. 5 for the outright lead.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland Tiger Woods didn't entirely hurt his chances in the British Open.

"I've made a lot of progress over the year that's been kind of an off year, a building year", said Spieth, who came third at the Masters in April but then missed the cut at the US Open.

The Open Why Tiger Woods is battling HISTORY to win at Carnoustie
GETTY The Open Tiger Woods shot a round of 66 on Saturday

There is a possibility of rain Sunday morning, followed by 20-25 miles per hour winds in the afternoon. There already was a 64 on the board by Justin Rose and a 65 by Yusaku Miyazato.

The charge began at the fourth where a brilliant wedge shot set up a birdie, and he picked up another shot at the sixth.

It is also the first time he has led at any point of a major since 2012, when he shared the 36-hole lead at the PGA Championship.

Zach Johnson and Dustin Johnson, one of golf's most powerful players, share nothing in common but a surname.

NOTEWORTHY: The last two British Open champions at Carnoustie rallied from 10 shots (Paul Lawrie) and six shots (Padraig Harrington) on the final day.

Making his own mark, Woods drained a long birdie putt on the ninth and made a tap-in birdie on 10 to rocket onto the giant yellow leaderboards around the course for the first time. He didn't make a bogey on the normally tough Carnoustie links. "I may not play well, but I'm going to go out and fight", said Johnson, who is sharing a house with first-round leader Kevin Kisner as well as defending champion Jordan Spieth and a handful of other young Americans in Carnoustie.

Unhappy with his swing during the first two days, the 24-year-old found a slight adjustment did the trick, and the first hole provided a massive jolt of confidence.

"Even this week, there's 156 guys in the field, and there's probably over half of them that have a realistic chance of winning this golf tournament, " he said.
