Jul 22, 2018; Carnoustie, Angus, SCT; Tiger Woods on the first tee during the final round of The Open Championship golf tournament at Carnoustie Golf Links.

While Spieth went for a very traditional look with his makeover, his fellow American Rickie Fowler, with whom he is sharing a house this week, opted for something a whole lot more notable for Sunday's final round. Spieth, who finished tied for the lead at 9 under.

"It's been a few years since I've felt like this", Woods said in comments that might seem somewhat ominous for his rivals.

Moments later, Woods began his charge to get into contention at a major for the first time in five years.

"The wind is supposed to pick up, so that might be a helping hand", said Fleetwood, who holds the course record at Carnoustie with a 63 at the Dunhill Championship past year and also shot 63 on the final day of the US Open last month to finish second behind Brooks Koepka.

"However, if the bad weather doesn't come in, then we know we're going to have to shoot eight under par on Sunday". "But here I am with a chance Sunday in a major championship".

Rose's effort equalled the lowest round in an Open on the Scottish links, although it was not quite good enough to trouble Fleetwood's overall course record of 63, set past year. "At least I know that I will be there with a chance", he surmised.

It never stopped. Seven players had a share of the lead at one point.

Iran's top leader rejects talks with USA to solve problems
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday warned the USA against taking aggressive action that could lead to war with Iran . The US has provided a list of 12 demands that says Tehran needs to accept if it seeks relief from Washington's threats.

They were at 9-under 204.

Woods is box office for this sport and throughout his third round it was clear to see why. "But I'm right there".

A bogey on the 16th and a par save from short of the Barry Burn on the 18th gave him a 66. "The grass grabbed the shaft on both of them", Woods told NBC after his round.

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.

An hour in and Spieth and Schauffele were doing that but only by their fingertips.

Large crowds are following the 42-year-old Woods, who has yet to win in his latest comeback.

Tiger Woods, who holds the lowest third round scoring average (68.44) on the PGA Tour this season, has made five birdies through his first 11 holes today.

Wedged 'twixt the swarms following Tiger in front and Spieth behind, Kisner keeps his head down, his putter hot and rides the from-nowhere heater that he's been on this week all the way to the top. It looked nice.JORDAN SPIETH: No, my hair got a little long, and I needed to get a haircut, so I did this morning.
