  • Rose makes hay on moving day to threaten leaders at British Open

The winds have hardly blustered at Carnoustie this week but Justin Rose still needed a last-gasp birdie yesterday to avoid being beached on the Angus coast. "I was very excited last night not to be down the road, ruing another Open opportunity gone. Obviously, I had nothing to lose from that point of view".

It was not quite good enough to trouble Tommy Fleetwood's overall course record of 63, set previous year, but Rose is now four under par for the tournament and finds himself in the clubhouse just two shots adrift of overnight leaders Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner.

The men to catch are a trio of Johnson's compatriots - Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner - who share the lead at nine-under.

"It was a handsome morning to play golf", he said after Saturday's round, which featured only 25 putts. "I hadn't felt the energy of the crowd for a while in the Open". The greens were somewhat receptive, obviously, and the pins weren't as tough as maybe the first couple of days. "I felt like it was a typical set-up for a moving day today". Given a new lifeline as he chases his first Claret Jug, he got off to a quick start in the third round with a birdie at the first.

"Momentum-wise, birdying the very first hole, picking up where I left off last night, got me well into the round early", England's Rose told reporters after rocketing into title contention with a four-under aggregate of 209. Just doing the simple things better today. "Be out there fairly early tomorrow and certainly try to get into the red as soon as I can and try to make a run".

After missing the cut by one shot, Knox said it was back to normal.

As he hoped the clement weather conditions might change for when the leaders went out later, Rose said birdies at the final two holes had at least made his final round on Sunday more than a case of just going through the motions.

"You're only going to ever get to play the first time with him once, and that was mine", Knox said.

Rose's round matched the 64 shot by American Steve Stricker in the third round here in 2007, while Australian Richard Green shot the same score in the final round back when the Open most recently was played at Carnoustie. But then there's a difference between being three-over on Friday and way off the lead and three-over and way off the lead on Saturday morning.

He added a further bogey on the par-four 17th hole and looked to be in trouble on the last as he found himself putting next to the fence by the green.
