Tiger Woods on the prowl in the third round of Open Championship

America's Jordan Spieth after he finished on the 18th green on the third day of the 2018 Open Golf championships in Carnoustie Scotland

It's a 9 a.m start for U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and Cameron Davis (both +3), with a potential Ryder Cup pairing in Henrik Stenson and Paul Casey set for 9.20.

"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.

Woods made a solid par at 17 before flirting with disaster at 18.

They were at 9-under 204.

Spieth will have four major titles before his 25th birthday if he wins on Sunday.

Woods will be in the third-to-last pairing, with Francesco Molinari.

Woods claimed not to have noticed he had spent about 20 minutes atop the board. But it was there.

England's Justin Rose is a shot behind Woods and McIlroy after earlier equalling the lowest score in an Open at Carnoustie with a brilliant 64, a day after needing a birdie on the last just to make the cut.

Spieth had started the round on three under and three shots off the lead, but the eagle took him within one of the pace-setters at the time. "But I'm right there".

"Hopefully I can get some nice weather tomorrow".

Start digging, there could be a quadrillion tons of diamonds underground
But what is a "cratonic root"? Seismic data can also be used to effectively see inside Earth, similar to an ultrasound scan. A new study conducted by researchers revealed a quadrillion tons of diamonds lying deep below the surface of our planet.

"I've always wanted to battle it out in a major with Tiger". In more hard conditions, his 65 felt just as good, especially the birdie on the 18th that put him atop the leaderboard until Johnson finished.

Kevin Chappell (67) is two shots back at 7-under.

Woods has not won a major since 2008 after personal problems and serious injury interrupted his career, but played himself into contention at Carnoustie with a five-under 66 on Saturday.

Twelve players were separated by four shots, a group that includes Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Zach Johnson.

Followed around the Scottish links by huge crowds and a circus of journalists and photographers, the 14-time major victor was at one point in a share of the lead after claiming a sixth birdie of the day at the 14th hole.

"Just like the ones I've practiced in my backyard", he said, adding, "That was big for me just to not finish with two bogeys on the last three holes, playing as well as I did".

Johnson, staying in the same house as Kisner, Spieth and four other Americans, hooked his approach on No. 12 and three-putted for a double bogey. The stellar round gives Woods a shot at winning his 15th major on Sunday.

Not since Woods in 2006 has the defending champion gone into the final round with at least a share of the lead.

With trickier, windy conditions expected for the last round, Kisner feels it could be an unpredictable day, and a harder one.

Zander Lombard dropped two shots on the 17th hole when he pulled it into a ditch, took a drop, hit into a bunker and missed the cut.
