Spieth cards 65 to share lead with Schauffele and Kisner

Tiger Woods in the hunt and loving it at The Open

Throwing caution aside after starting the day six strokes behind, Woods wielded his driver aggressively and was rewarded with six birdies in the first 14 holes.

After two rounds Spieth is tied for 11th, three shots behind house mates Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner.

But he could get the battle with Tiger Woods he has always pictured in his head with the 14-time major victor lurking ominously among the chasing pack after a thrilling day of low scoring at a defenceless Carnoustie.

Woods will always be cautious to avoid aggravating his previous injuries that has seen him undergo four surgeries to aid his long history of back problems.

Tiger Woods, who teed off in the morning and finished in the afternoon, kept himself in contention with a second consecutive even-par 71 to stand six shots out of the lead when he walked off the course. He said: "Playing the last four holes, I was pushing myself to make a couple more".

Asked about becoming the first Englishman to win a British Open in 26 years, Fleetwood said, "It would be very special".

In his first Open appearance since 2015, the 42-year-old showed glimpses of the magic that won him 14 majors, the sort of sparkling form that has eluded him since his last win at a major in 2008.

But just when one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time seemed on the cards, Woods failed to pull off a risky flop shot to get out of trouble on 11.

Tiger Woods still has work to do after a rugged start, good recovery and then a mix of birdies and bogeys that left him stuck in neutral on a better day for scoring.

"I was on cloud nine walking down the 18th", he said. His first two holes were steady, if nothing else, with Woods at par through three.

Woods still walked away Friday realising he made it a little tougher on the weekend at Carnoustie if he wants to end a decade without winning a major.

Francesco Molinari escapes a classic Carnoustie bunker. With all the spectators struggling to watch Woods, "she couldn't get close enough to the ropes to watch me".

At 5 under overall, Woods was two shots off the lead.

Woods only returned to competitive golf in November, but has recorded three top-five finishes on the PGA Tour this season. "I'd certainly rather play boring golf, but missing in the right places, I kind of take a pride in".

"I didn't feel like I really made a bad swing until 18", he said.

Rose, who finished fourth in the Open as a 17-year-old amateur 20 years ago, birdied the 18th hole on Friday evening to make the halfway cut with nothing to spare on three over par.

After shooting 71 on Saturday to start the final round eight strokes off the lead, Pepperell said he was "so frustrated" and had "too much to drink last night".

"It can improve a little bit, but all aspects of the game got better today".
