Reigning U.S. Open champ and World No. 11 Brooks Koepka made an albatross (video link below) on the par-5 16th en route to a course- and week-tying-low, 9-under-par 32-31=63 and a four-day tally of 11-under 277 (70-70-74-63). UPDATE: With play completed, Koepka finished T11 and was one of only two players with two bogey-free rounds (R1/R4) on the week (Jason Day).

Koepka did the deed with 6-iron from 208 yards out. He's all the way up to T3 after beginning T63 on 2-under, 17 shots adrift of leader Webb Simpson. The 28-year-old is still eight back -- Simpson tees off in 1 hr, 15 mins -- and may not even card the day's low round with Kiradech Aphibarnrat 8-under thru 14 holes (and a few others going low). He was almost a no-go in the tourney at all, re-injuring his wrist at a range incident involving a cart on Wednesday. This is the Floridian's season low in 15 rounds, previously 64/R1 CIMB (finished T2), and his best by three at TPC Sawgrass, brushing aside 66/R1 in 2016. Making his fourth appearance, it looks like he'll keep the streak of progressively better finishes intact: CUT/2015; T35/2016 and T16 last year. His R4 stats: 12 (of 14) fairways; 17 greens in regulation; albatross and six birdies; NO bogeys; SG: Total: 6.551.

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.
Jul 20 - 3:42 PM

Xander Schauffele made a big move up the leaderboard in round two of The Open Championship, tossing together a 5-under-par 35-31=66, jumping more than 25 spots on the live leaderboard into a share of third place (5-under 137), just one off the co-leaders.

It took Schauffele 10 holes to pick off his first birdie this week. Over the next 27 holes, he's circled six birdies and an eagle to offset two bogeys (three bogeys total on the week). Today it was all about driving as he used his distance but also piped 10 (of 15) fairways. From there, his putter caught fire as he needed just 24 swipes with the flat stick by day's end. The highlight of the day came at the par-5 14th where he rolled in an eagle from around 20 feet. The San Diego State product continues to be a big-game hunter. He has eight career top 10s with four of those coming at the U.S. Open (x2), the TOUR Championship, and THE PLAYERS. This won't beat Tommy Fleetwood's 65 from this morning, but this will be the second-best round of the day.
Jul 20 - 3:15 PM

Pat Perez was blemish-free thru 17 holes before swallowing his lone bogey of the day, still managing a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to reach 5-under 137 at the midpoint of The 147th Open, currently one off the pacesetters at the top.

The ASU product split 10 (of 15) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation. Those aren't the stats that you'd expect from a one-bogey effort. It was his short game that did most of the talking, needing just 26 swipes with the putter today. Perez has traded 8 birdies with three bogeys through 36 holes at Carnoustie Golf Links. His previous best positioning through 36 holes of an Open Championship was T20 in 2007, which happens to be when Carnoustie last hosted this event. Perez would go on to finish T20 that week which is his only top 65 at The Open in four attempts. There is clearly something about the layout that he likes since he arrived on the heels of eight straight (individual) starts without a top 35.
Jul 20 - 2:01 PM

Overnight leader Kevin Kisner maintained his place at the front of the field after day two of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie but he's now tied for top spot with Zach Johnson on 6-under 136 following a double bogey at 18 in his 1-under-par 34-36=70.

Anyone who thought the American would just be Thursday's story looked to be badly mistaken as the World No. 33 cruised to the 18th tee with a two-shot lead after hitting 8-under. But after a loose drive, his second from rough found the Barry Burn in front of the green, forcing a double bogey-6. Prior to that sting in the tail, Kisner had outpaced bogeys at 8 and 10 with red circles at 5, 7, 9, 13 and 14. Back in August, Kisner had a piece of the lead after 18, 36 and 54 holes of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow before slipping to T7 so it's no surprise that he did plenty of good work today. Inevitably, his putter cooled after he took just 22 swishes in round one (29 on his second lap) while he hit more fairways (9 of 15) and greens (13) today. On the live board, there are two other players at 6-under, Pat Perez after 14 and Zander Lombard after 8, so Kisner may lose his T1 position by close of play.
