This is the Tiger Woods the world has been waiting for

Tiger Woods almost caused an injury to fans at Carnoustie Tiger Woods almost caused an injury to fans at Carnoustie

Fleetwood holds the course record at Carnoustie after shooting a 63 here previous year, and Friday's effort is the best ever for the second round of a British Open on the notoriously tough Scottish links.

When he closed with a crowd-pleasing, 5-under-par 66, it marked his lowest number in a major tournament since the 2011 Masters (60 major rounds ago), and his lowest on a weekend since the 2010 US Open (29 such rounds ago).

As melancholy as Spieth was about giving back the claret jug, and make no mistake, he wasn't happy, not even his status among the leading contenders with a lap remaining was enough for him to ignore the sleeping giant.

"I love where my putter is and love my position going into the weekend", Kisner said.

'It kept me in the fight, ' Woods added.

"It would be better on Sunday, but I'm right there".

"I just need to get off to a fast start tomorrow".

Friday was not easy, but Woods said the rain actually helped soften the course a bit and helped the greens. "It's going to be fun". He's won 14 total - four back of Jack Nicklaus.

"I would imagine it's going to be more of a grind all day", he said of the final round. It's like playing with a mythical creature.

After a missed birdie putt on the 15th denied him the outright lead, he dropped from the leading pack after missing the green on the par-three 16th to record the only blemish on his card.

When a 25-foot birdie putt trundled across the ninth green and into the cup things to get very interesting.

"You're the man, Tiger, and everyone knows it", yelled a fan standing next to another in an orange and black tiger costume. So when he rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, stiffed an approach inside two feet for birdie at No. 10, and almost drove onto the green to set up a tap-in birdie at No. 11, there was a feeling something special was happening.

It could have been even better. Woods dropped his putter in disbelief when a birdie attempt refused to drop on 13, but he made birdie at the par-five 14th to put his name at the top of the leaderboard - a development that had seasoned golf hacks snapping photos of the huge media scoreboard.

He did not stay there long.

Kisner, Spieth's housemate this week on Angus coast, has led or shared the lead after each round this week and hasn't shown any signs of fading like he did at last year's PGA Championship, when he started the final round with a one-stroke lead only to close with a 74 to tie for seventh place.

He laid up, then speared a majestic 150-yard wedge to within three feet. The wind is supposed to pick up a little bit.

"That was big for me, just to not finish on two bogeys in the last three holes, [after] playing as well as I did", he said. "I didn't want to be too far back if the guys got to 10 [under] today".
