Gary Woodland struggled out of the gate but stormed the back nine en route to a 3-under-par 39-28=67 during the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, throwing his name inside the top 15 on the live leaderboard on 6-under 134.

The Kansas Jayhawk looked lost with three bogeys and a double over his first eight holes. He snapped out of the funk quickly with back-to-back birdies but the best was still to come. Coming into the clubhouse, Woodland circled six birdies in his closing eight holes (8 of his last 10, in total). Highlights included 21'6" and 35'4" splashes at the par-4 14th and par-4 15th, respectively. Woodland ended the day with +3.015 strokes gained putting next to his name. After striking it well on Thursday but not getting any putts to fall, he did the opposite today. He has now posted 13 straight rounds in the 60s here at Waialae Country Club.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Kisner maintained a share of the lead with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the third round of The 147th Open, joining co-leaders Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele on 9-under 204.

Kisner continued to add to his recipe of success here at Carnoustie. Taking advantage of the long holes, he added two more par-5 birdies today to reach 6-under on the week (4 birdies and an eagle in 6 par 5s played). Kisner has landed just 61.1 percent of greens this week but leads the field in the number of total scrambles (17-of-21). You would like to see a bit better ball-striking from a contender but it's hard to argue with that level of short-game success. This will go in the books as his fifth career 54-hole lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR. He's finished runner-up in two of those, won one (2015-16 RSM Classic), and finished T7 in the other (2017 PGA Championship). That remains as his lone top 10 in a major championship but he has a great chance to improve on that tomorrow evening.

Xander Schauffele steadied a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round three of The 147th Open, climbing to 9-under 204 to join Jordan Spieth in the clubhouse as the current co-leaders.

Schauffele went birdie-free in R1 on his outward nine. He circled two birdies there during his second round and today he picked up three birdies to erase a bogey at the par-4 second hole. The four-hole closing stretch is where the field is really struggling at Carnoustie but Schauffele is 2-under-par on the week when it comes to playing holes 15 thru 18 (3 birdies, 1 bogey). That included a walk-off birdie from just off the back of the green at the par-4 18th today. This will be his first career 54-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR as he entered his 2017 Greenbrier win in a share of third and was T2 thru 54 holes when winning the 2017 TOUR Championship. The San Diego State product entered with three top 20s in four major championship starts, continuing to establish his reputation as a big-game hunter.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth started hot and kicked again on the back nine to complete a superb bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 and jump into top spot in round three of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie on 9-under 204.

Spieth's week got off to a modest beginning when he handed in a 1-over 72 but he's played the middle two rounds in 10-under after following up Friday's 67 with today's 65, a score he shot in round three last year when winning at Royal Birkdale. Saturday's round got off to a dramatic start when the American drove the first green and holed from 10ft for eagle. He added another birdie at 4 but had to wait a while before his next. It came at 11 (the third straight day he's birdied it) before he ticked 14 and 16 to put himself in great position for a successful defense. Right now, he's T1 with compatriots Xander Schuaffele and Kevin Kisner, who are still to complete. Spieth came to Carnoustie with some ugly putting stats hanging over him but he's T4 in Putts Per Round so far this week, taking 29 today. His long game is in good shape too after pelting 15 greens in regulation on day three.

Francesco Molinari twirled a 6-under-par bogey-free 33-32=65 in round three of the 147th Open Championship, posting the new clubhouse lead of 6-under 207 and rising 24 spots up the live leaderboard to T5.

Right now, that's two back from final two-ball Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson, who have 10 holes still to complete. This is vindication for #TeamCurrentForm so far as Molinari came to Carnoustie as one of the hottest players in the game following a pair of wins (BMW PGA Championship and Quicken Loans National) and two second places from his last six starts. That's not to say his Open record is poor as he's made five of his last six cuts and has a T9 at Muirfield in 2013 and two other top 15s. He made his move today with three birdies on each nine (1, 6, 7, 10, 14 and 16), his final red number after holing a slow uphill putt from off the green. Traditionally his weakness, the flatstick has been a key weapon for the Italian so far and he ranks fifth in the live Putting Average stats with exactly 27. A runner-up at last summer's PGA Championship, he'll be chasing a first major victory in tomorrow's closer and those recent wins will definitely give him added belief.

Tiger Woods thrilled the Carnoustie galleries on Moving Day by piecing together a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in round three of the 147th Open Championship, good enough for the new clubhouse lead of 5-under 208 and T5 on the live board after a rise of 24 spots.

This felt great to watch. At one point on Saturday afternoon after making birdie at 14, Woods went 6-under for the day and topped the leaderboard, sparking a flood of screen grabs. It felt like 2006 all over again, the last time he won an Open. He'd reached there after plotting his way around the par 71 and picking off birdies at 4, 6, 9, 10, 11 and the back nine's only par 5. He did drop a shot at 16 for the second day running and looked as if he could leak a little more oil at the last but Woods wedged it up and down from 100 yards to save par. Now he'll have to wait and see how far back he'll be by day's close. Right now, he's two behind leaders Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner. Woods had great control today, hitting 80% of the fairways, 14 greens in regulation and taking 29 putts.

After sneaking into the weekend with a birdie at 18 yesterday, Justin Rose came out firing in round three of The Open at Carnoustie, thrashing a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-30=64 to leap 58 spots up the live leaderboard to T7.

That's just two back from halfway pacesetters Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner, who are still over two-and-a-half hours from heading out. It's been a struggle for Rose the first two days but he showed his class in Saturday's favorable scoring conditions after staying patient early. He birdied the opening hole but managed just one more red number, at the par-5 6th, on his front nine. Rose kicked on with a circle at 10 before sprinting to the line with birdies at 13, 14, 17 and 18. Not surprisingly, he had his best stats of the week in all departments, piping 10 (of 15) fairways, pelting 14 greens and taking just 25 swishes with the putter. Is he back in the tournament? He'd need the weather to turn in the afternoon to stop the leading groups pulling away but with his lowest ever round in an Open the Englishman has at least given himself some sort of chance.

The second round of the Barbasol Championship has been called for the day due to inclement weather still in the area. Play is scheduled to resume at 7:30 AM ET on Saturday. UPDATE: With R2 completed on Saturday, Merritt leads Billy Horschel and Cameron Percy by two.

Just 41 players (of 127) where able to get their respective laps in the books. The calling of play came after a delay that had already exceeded two hours with no end in sight. Overnight leader and World No. 327 Troy Merritt was fortunate to get around Keene Trace GC before the suspension, chasing his opening 62 with a seven-birdie, two-bogey 67 to post the clubhouse lead on 15-under 129. With preferred lies in effect, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.558 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. If the lead holds up, it'll be the 32-year-old's second 36-hole lead/co-lead in 178 events, first since the 2015 RBC Heritage where he eventually finished solo 3rd.

Tony Finau had some early-morning injury concerns but recovered nicely to record an even-par 35-36=71 during round two of The 147th Open, sharing a piece of sixth place on 4-under 138 after 36 holes.

The big hitter was striking it well today but couldn't get the putts to drop. With his stellar striking, it was surprising to hear about the following, "I did a workout this morning. I had a weird back spasm as soon as I finished my workout about three hours before my round. So I couldn't barely bend over." In the end, he was able to play despite the back troubles. Finau peppered 13 greens in regulation. After 36 holes, Finau ranks 1st in the field with 11 total birdies, ahead of Brooks Koepka who is the only other golfer in double digits. Finau has now been inside the top 10 thru 36 holes in five of his 10 major championship appearances.

Jon Rahm ballooned to a 7-over-par 41-37=78 during round two of The 147th Open, plummetting down the leaderboard to miss the cut by two strokes at 5-over 147.

A total of 78 pros and one amateur made the cut at Carnoustie Golf Links. Sam Locke was the amateur who secured low am of the week already. Jon Rahm was a surprise MC this week, especially when you consider he was inside the top 10 after R1. The Spaniard had some bad luck in bunkers today and never got back on track (going triple bogey-boggey-double bogey at holes 7 thru 9). Rahm is now 6-for-10 in majors with just one top 20. Other notables to miss the cut include: 146- World No. 2 Justin Thomas, Sergio Garcia, Hideki Matsuyama; 147- Brian Harman; 148- World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson; 150- Past Carnoustie champ Padraig Harrington; 154- Ian Poulter.

Jordan Spieth styled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of The 147th Open, climbing 39 spots on the leaderboard to sit in a share of 11th place (3-under 139) at halftime.

Spieth circled birdies at 3, 5, 10, 11, and to climb inside the top 10. He dropped a shot on the difficult closing stretch but it was a three-shot improvement on the final stretch, compared to R1. Spieth is now 8-under par on Holes 1 thru 14 and 5-over on holes 15 thru 18. The Texan split just seven (of 15) fairways but gave himself plenty of short approaches from the fescue. "I'd certainly rather play boring golf, but missing in the right places, I kind of take pride in, okay, I miss that, but the hole opens up for me here, and it makes it not too bad." He entered without a top 20 since the Masters but he's got himself right back in the thick of things now, entering the weekend just three of the pace of co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson.

Due to inclement weather, the second round of the Barbasol Championship was suspended at 3:25 PM ET with players being removed from the course.

Davis Love III, 54 years young, got his lap completed before the stoppage, authoring a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 (preferred lies) to back up a five-birdie, one-bogey 68 in the opener. He reached the midpoint on 8-under 136, up 15 spots on the day to T13, seven shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Troy Merritt, who was also the first-round pacesetter. This is Love III's second Barbasol after a T67 last year at the former venue (RTJ Trail). The suspension was the first of the day, though the start of R2 was delayed by 2 hours, 30 minutes due to inclement weather. That after having moved tee times ahead by 1 hour, 20 minutes the day before.
