The Open 2018: Justin Rose shoots 64 at Carnoustie

Woods began his round at even-par for the tournament after two rounds of 71, six shots behind co-leaders Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner, with a few dozen golfers in front of him.

Woods capped his front-nine 33 with the birdie atop the story, which can also be seen here.

On the very next hole, Woods hit a brilliant drive miles down the fairway, then stuck his approach shot to within a foot of a hole for an easy tap-in birdie.

"I felt like it was a lovely morning to play golf, and it was an opportunity to score well out there", said the world No 3, whose tie for fourth as a 17-year-old amateur in 1998 remains his best finish in The Open.

The crowd got involved too, and roared encouragement from the greenside stands with those at the shared 4th and 14th green getting a double dose of delight as Rose stalked his eagle putt while a few yards away An Byeong-hun of South Korea chipped in from just off the green and tight to the cup and much to the delight of Kevin Na, his American playing partner.

Nor should he. Zach Johnson, victor of a Masters and that British Open, has put himself in fantastic position to have his name engraved on the cherished Claret Jug for a second time. He didn't make a bogey on the normally tough Carnoustie links. He was grafting, struggling, not holing putts or even looking like he was going to make one before one finally dropped on the 18th.

Two holes later, he found a pot bunker right of the par-3 16th and made bogey. Woods and the rest of the early starters faced an entire round of light rain, while it cleared out for the afternoon. Masters champion Patrick Reed ran off three straight birdies starting at No. 5 and has made the turn at 3 under. Woods asked the gallery to move back because he would have to start it to the right with the golf ball well above his feet.

Justin Rose has started his third round of the British Open much earlier than he would have liked.

Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, Nos.

Johnson and Kisner were at 6-under 136, one shot ahead of Tommy Fleetwood (65), Pat Perez (68) and Xander Schauffele (66).

Despite their wretched luck, seven Australians made the halfway cut, led by major winners Adam Scott and Jason Day and fearless rookies Lucas Herbert and Cameron Davis, to give themselves a fighting chance of Open glory. Nearly anyone in the field can win it, and no one - not even the best players in the world - is immune to flaming out. If he could prop up Woods and Mickelson, and increase the odds of a Rory vs. Rickie vs. Jordan final-round showdown by dropping one into Barry Burn, hey, by all means - burn, baby, burn.
