Tiger Woods moves into share of lead at British Open

Tiger Woods moves into share of lead at British Open

There was some conspiracy-theory speculation that one of his housemates - including Kisner and Johnson - might have pulled a frat-house prank on him. Instead, his 8-iron floated out of the rough, bounced in front of Barry Burn and caromed off the rock wall that lines the stream.

He still made bogey. I don't quite understand it.

Both golfers are at 6-under after the 2nd round. Right behind them are Tommy Fleetwood, Pat Perez and Xander Schauffle at -5, three would-be-first-time major winners. It wasn't enough to turn the grass from brown to green, just enough to be a nuisance playing in rain gear, with towels hanging from the inside of umbrellas to stay dry and putting surfaces that were slightly slower. Chappell finished on seven under and will be in the penultimate pairing with Kisner. Perez was tied for the lead until he hit into a bunker on the 18th hole and took bogey.

The Texan's tee-shot at the 2nd could not have been more different, however, and he saw it finish halfway up the grassy bank on the right-hand side of the fairway.

Canada's Adam Hadwin surveys his options on the sixth hole. "So far for two rounds, I'm up there on the leaderboard".

Daniel Berger is the third well-known member of the '11 class - he had a strong college resume and went back-to-back at the PGA Tour's St. Jude Classic in '16 and '17 - but is No. 40 in the world rankings, 16 places lower than Schauffele.

He's got his silver medal from 11 years ago, and he's also got his name on the claret jug for his wire-to-wire win at Royal Liverpool in 2014. He goes into the weekend just three shots back.

"It was a dream start for the day, " Spieth said. A tap-in at the par-five 14th lifted him to the top of a Major championship leaderboard for the first time since the second round at the 2013 Masters.

The Red Devils will play San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday before facing AC Milan, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Mourinho's men failed to defend the League Cup they'd won the year before and lost 1-0 to Chelsea in the Fa Cup Final.

Spieth began with an eagle two at the first and added four more birdies to get to 9-under-par.

"I'm right there", he said. The greens held shots a little better.

"There's a difference between being 3 over on Friday and way off the lead and 3 over and way off the lead on Saturday morning, " Rose said.

"Hit the same club as the approach", Kisner said. Kevin Kisner, the 18-hole leader, was among the late starters. Woods' clubhouse lead lasted only a few minutes before Italian Francesco Molinari, the hottest player in the game recently, carded 65 for six-under. "He's really starting to roll the ball well". I'm playing golf for me now. As for talking shop?

"That was good, that was good", he said, with just a touch of relief.

Thomas will have one of the horror stories.

But he was fortunate to make a bogey at the second after a awful drive well right of the fairway, and he failed to birdie the par-5 sixth after another wayward drive that meant he could not advance the ball very close to the green. Joining them was Tommy Fleetwood, who dropped three shots in two holes on the back nine on his way to a 71. He shot 77 and missed the cut by one shot. Others who won't be around for the weekend include Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Sergio Garcia, Bubba Watson and Matthew Fitzpatrick.
