"He was working the ball around the greens, and that was cool to see".

"That was too close to the game of play", he said.

The former Masters champion rued a killer double-bogey on the par-four third after his lob wedge ballooned in the breeze back into the burn and he was unable to get it up and down for bogey. Pitching back to the fairway instead of going for the green? Playing a safe shot from behind the 11th green? "He's healthy. I wouldn't say we're anxious about him, but he's one of those guy that's always in with a shot". It added up to a 5-over 76 for Spieth, who shared the 54-hole lead with Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

He finished at 8-under 276, the lowest score in eight Opens at Carnoustie, the course where Jean Van de Velde threw away the British Open with a triple bogey on the last hole in 1999, where Padraig Harrington twice hit into Barry Burn on the last hole to make double bogey and still won.

The 42-year-old American legend - beset by personal problems and back issues for most of the last decade after once dominating the sport - threatened a shock victory at Carnoustie when, halfway through his final round, he led while most of his rivals were shedding shots.

Woods voiced his concern that a hospitality area was so near to the players.

In his prime, Woods could never be called the most endearing champion.

"The beginning of the year, if they'd have said, 'You're playing The Open Championship, ' I would have said I'd be very lucky to do that".

Fleetwood tames Carnoustie again with 65
Tommy Fleetwood , he of the shoulder length mop and blazing eyes, lit up Angus with the kind of golf that transforms landscapes. That Fleetwood hadn't even considered shooting such a low score was, he says, "an indication of how good it was".

He subsequently said on Twitter, "I wasn't THAT drunk last night!"

"Chaotic is probably the best way to put it", he said with a smile. She just had a baby and lost the Wimbledon finals. Just keep it in perspective, and the same thing with me.

"I know that it's going to sting for a little bit here, but given where I was to where I'm at now, blessed". It felt like old times at the British Open, as familiar as his Sunday red shirt and the swarm of fans that cheered his every shot.

Plenty of weekend golfers have hit the links while coping with a hangover, but a lot of them were not competing in the British Open at the time.

"Tiger himself was great today", said Molinari, who joked that he might make the headlines back in Italy given Ferrari did not win the German Grand Prix. But the closing holes are treacherous, and despite flinching on a tee shot at the 18th because of a spectator bellowing during his backswing, he managed to give himself a 5-footer for birdie that he missed.

As it turned out, that birdie would have just briefly brought him to within 1 stroke - as Molinari made his putt for birdie to seal the tournament.

"It didn't feel any different, " he insisted. "I was so frustrated yesterday, that today was really, I wouldn't say a write-off, but I didn't feel like I was in the golf tournament". I'm right there. I've got a chance at this, which is great. It was the first time since the 2007 U.S. Open that he trailed going into the final round of a major, had the lead and didn't win. But this being golf, all attention must turn to Woods. This is the a year ago the event will be played there, and Woods made it a goal to return.
