Justin Rose matched the lowest score in Carnoustie's British Open history, a flawless seven-under-par 64 in the third round at the British Open on Saturday.

The 22-year-old, who was tied 52nd after the first two rounds, took his three-day total to two-over par. Right there with him are Xander Schauffele, the 2017 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, and Kevin Kisner, who's held the lead or a share every day of the tournament. He started his move with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, followed with short birdie putts on the next two holes and with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 14th, he put his name atop the leaderboard.

Norris, ranked 125th in the world, played with the American 14-time major champion for the first time and predicted his rise back to the top of world golf was imminent.

Schauffele birdied the last for a 67, while Kisner shot 68 as the two Americans joined Spieth at nine-under 204.

Francesco Molinari had a 66 and will play in the third-to-last group with Woods.

Tiger Woods turned back the clock and briefly tied for the lead en route to a five-under-par 66 as players plundered Carnoustie in ideal conditions in the third round of the British Open on Saturday. On Saturday, Sharma had a birdie on second after missing a chance on first, but gave away that gain on ninth, which he bogeyed for the second day running and then gave away another shot on 10th. For three magical hours the three-time Open champion played like he'd never drifted into the dark competitive hole that's defined his last few years.

"I felt like I really had control of the golf ball and I hit so many quality golf shots".

With him, the imaginations went off on a run, as when one reporter asked what a 15th major title might mean given all the strain and hubbub and surgery since the 14th, which was the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego. His presence creeping up the leaderboard nearly overshadowed the fact Spieth has positioned himself to become the first player to defend his Open Championship title since Padraig Harrington did it in 2007-08.

The current transfer record for an outgoing MLS star belongs to Jozy Altidore, who was once sold to Villarreal for $10 million. Davies, a midfielder, has three goals and eight assists in 20 games with Vancouver this season.

"I can't lie, if I could pick one tournament in my life to win, it would be the Open", he said.

"I've always said that my performances in the majors at that point, that wasn't the norm", McIlroy said. The birdie on 18 last night freed me up and I'm just very happy to be (here).

It's called Moving Day for a reason.

"I'm right there. I've got a chance at this, which is great. I had to stay within reach", Woods continued.

"I didn't know if I carried it or not, if it was in the hazard or rough. That was one of them", Woods said. "There were some opportunities that slipped by on 2, 3, 4, 5, I felt, but the 6th was the first birdie I've made on a par five all week".

"He was a bit tentative early in the final round but after he hit that errant tee shot at the 13th hole he came back strong, and once he gets the bit between his teeth, he is tough".

"Under those conditions, I would have taken that score today going out", McIlroy said.
