Sizzling 66 puts charging Tiger in the mix

Tiger Woods, British Open

Woods, who opened the day at even par after two rounds of even par, is now officially in contention for the championship.

Woods and Fleetwood are among a gaggle of players who are four shots behind joint-leaders Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner and it is the 27-year-old Englishman that Jacklin fancies to pick up the trophy. "He didn't quite get it together today but he still came back strongly with three birdies in the last five holes".

Rose's round progressed nicely until the turn, which he made at one over and got back to level at the 10th before holing a 20-footer at the short 13th to go into the red numbers for the first time since day one, just after his serenity was shattered by an errant photographer when he stood over a tiddler at the 5th to get to two under.

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.

Since Woods' last major triumph in 2008, the world has searched for his successor.

Rory McIlroy briefly had the joint lead in The Open but, for the second round running, the finishing stretch at Carnoustie saw him grudgingly give shots back that he had fought so hard to earn.

The par-four 12th played as the toughest hole for the second day running with a scoring average of 4.506. I didn't know if that would ever happen again, but here I am with a chance in a major.

"I think yesterday was probably tied with today, in my mind, to get back into a golf tournament from being out of it, and then today to springboard that into pole position", he said. He's gotten married, become rich and has four major championship trophies on his fireplace mantle. He's also finished no worse than fifth in his last three Opens, including his win at Liverpool.

This is the Tiger Woods the world has been waiting for
He predicted the lead number might get to 10-under before day's end and he seemed fine with that. Jordan Spieth is also in the mix in his bid to take the claret jug back home to Texas.

But Spieth is not focused on history.

After personal problems and fitness issued have slowed Woods' career, the 42-year-old has a chance at adding a 15th major win, and he could end at five under par overall. I felt good about the range session'. It's like playing with a mythical creature. "Michael said, 'No, you lay it up, and it's still a wedge to the front pin.' But walking to the tee, I was walking with Cameron [McCormick, his swing coach], and I thought, 'How about I just send it on No. 1?"

"I've always wanted to battle it out with Tiger in a major - who hasn't?" "It's been a few years since I felt like this". "But I'm right there". "I had to stay within reach", Woods continued.

He got a lucky break at the last, where his pulled tee shot came within inches of landing in the Barry Burn.

Asked whether he was coming in under the radar the American said: "I don't know who is managing the radar".

"It certainly is possible", Woods said.

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.

"If I can get on a run or off to a fast start on one of the next two days, I don't see a ridiculously low score out there but I do see something like what Tommy shot out there today - a 66 or a 65".
