Tommy Fleetwood, he of the shoulder length mop and blazing eyes, lit up Angus with the kind of golf that transforms landscapes.

Having barely registered on the tournament radar on Thursday with a one-over par 72, Fleetwood's surge yesterday morning took The Open by surprise but not the Merseysider himself, who was over the moon with his work in tricky conditions at Carnoustie. A lot of the shots, I was just looking up, and I was really happy that they were going straight.

That Fleetwood hadn't even considered shooting such a low score was, he says, "an indication of how good it was". Perhaps it's the fact that he couldn't obscure just how delighted he was with such an impressive round or maybe, hearing him talk about it, it's because he nearly struggles to process what he has just accomplished. I don't mind the rain, it was not too windy but it was playing long.

"And then with it being wet, with the ball being wet and the club face, the possibility of that getting wet, you know, the spin rate goes right on on the driver, and it could start to go either way. So to have the ability to do that is something, well, it's great really".

He said: "I feel like there is a low round in me".

Perfectionist Fleetwood said he would be on the range later making tweaks for what could be a seismic weekend.

The 27-year-old knows how big an achievement it would be if he becomes the first Englishman in over a quarter of a century to win The Open Championship tomorrow.

"Yeah, it would be... it would be very special".

"If I could pick one tournament in my life to win it would be The Open", he added.

"I was hitting it a lot better, but I still never felt fully comfortable out there".

"Every time I looked up at the leaderboard, there's four, five, six guys in the lead, and five, six guys one back". But just try and keep doing the same things.

Meanwhile, Justin Thomas was hovering around the cut line.

But for the 24-year-old American the damage was done from holes five through to seven, the latter seeing him taking two to get out of the rough and then hitting his approach to the green up against an out-of-bounds fence to finish with a double-bogey.

Still, a second consecutive 69 sent the four-time major champion into the weekend in good shape.

Last season's PGA Tour rookie of the year began the final day in the last group alongside defending champion Jordan Spieth on nine under, but a slump began at the fifth hole and he was unable to recover.
