It could also lead to early players leapfrogging over the group of players - and there are seven in all - tied with Woods for sixth place and making it even more hard to move up the leaderboard.
Spieth believes there will be a much different golf course in front of players Sunday than there was in the third round, when the greens were holding, the wind was nonexistent and the temperature as warm as it gets this time of the year in Scotland. He had spent a third round in placid conditions by the North Sea making a steep, brisk climb.
The 2015 champion at St Andrews picked up four birdies, including one on the last, to move to six-under-par, one clear of overnight leader Kevin Kisner and Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, who shot up the leaderboard with a six-under-par 65. "And I've got an opportunity to make it a very memorable one with a round, but it's not necessary for me to prove anything".
There was some conspiracy-theory speculation that one of his housemates - including Kisner and Johnson - might have pulled a frat-house prank on him. But just try and keep doing the same things.
"I've made a lot of progress over the year that's been kind of an off year, a building year".
He has been fighting form and fitness in recent years, but showed glimpses of the game which has won him 14 majors.
Only at the par-3 16th hole, when Woods's fine tee shot met with some unsentimental luck and rolled unkindly over to the right and off the green, did he find his first bogey.
"The fact that I won previous year, I think helps sleep a little bit", Spieth said.
While he started the day behind the leading pack after a 72 in his first round, Fleetwood felt that his play had not been so bad and that there was room for immediate improvement.
Starting on level par, a birdie at the fourth put the American under par and another at the sixth was followed by three in five holes from the ninth to go 6-under, briefly into a share of the lead.
Former champion Zach Johnson and compatriot Kevin Kisner were setting the pace at eight under par midway through their rounds, with defending champion Jordan Spieth a shot behind. The course is scoring well and most of the leaders are still on the front nine.
It was there for only 20 minutes.
It took some of that scrapping from the 29-year-old to avoid a stinker of a start. He was hoping to not be too far back heading into the final round.
It was the first time Woods had topped a major leaderboard since the Masters in 2013.
But Woods made the most of his good fortune to make par and added: "It kept me in the fight". He is really hitting the ball well.
Fleetwood and Louis Oosthuizen have hit the most GIR (42 of 54). "I felt I really had control of the ball". Midway through the Friday round, holes 1-14 were playing a combined 257 strokes over par, while the final four holes were a combined 330 over par.
"It was a awful two-iron", Woods said. "Even when you think you've got it, it'll come up and bite you".
