Chris Wood surges up Open leaderboard

"What a week", Molinari said after being handed the Claret Jug.

For the first time in five years, Tiger Woods was in position to win a major tournament today before collapsing in the final nine holes at The Open Championship (also known as the British Open) at Carnoustie in Scotland.

He closed with a 2-under 69, playing the final 37 holes on the toughest links in golf without a bogey.

The 14-time major champion is 6 under for his third round. Schauffele got back on track with a birdie at No. 14 to pull into a tie with eventual victor Francesco Molinari on the 16th tee, but he fell away by making bogey on the next hole. Schauffele chopped up the next hole for double bogey.

Molinari pocketed 1,625,387 euros ($1,907,183.59) for the win.

Not even Tiger Woods.

A disruptive fan was ejected from The Open after shouting during Tiger Woods' drive on the 18th hole at Carnoustie.

However, the 42-year-old 14-time major victor had his rivals rattled when he grabbed the lead thanks to two birdies on the front nine while they were dropping shots.

Woods shot 66 and is in a tie for sixth place with six more players, including Rory McIlroy (70) and Tommy Fleetwood (71).

Eddie Pepperell says he was a "little hung over" during his round of 4-under 67 that has left him one shot off the lead at the British Open.

"To me, it's just so special to have them aware because I've won a lot of golf tournaments in my career, but they don't remember any of them". He almost sent his tee shot into the burn, avoiding the hazard by a matter of inches. He nearly holed the eagle putt from across the green before making birdie.

Jordan Spieth admits his barber cut a little too close for his short back and sides on Saturday morning (Richard Sellers/PA).

The three-time Open champion was in total control for the first half of his round Sunday.

Naturally all the attention was focused on Tiger, and then when he made two bad mistakes on the 11th it fell on Jordan Spieth and Schauffele as they at first looked solid and then unravelled, and then on Kevin Kisner and Kevin Chappell before they faltered.

Defending champion Spieth failed to make a birdie, with a penalty drop from a gorse bush on the sixth leading to a double bogey in a final round of 76.

At 5 under overall, Woods was two shots off the lead. However, it proved to be a false dawn as three dropped shots in two holes saw him fall behind and in the end the 14-time major victor was being consoled by his two children. There was once a six-way tie for the lead.

At 14 major wins wins, Tiger Woods is second all-time behind Jack Nicklaus. He missed and made birdie.

The 42-year-old, who had five prescription drugs in his system, later pleaded guilty to reckless driving.

McIlroy had struggled to make any headway but when he eagled the 14th he rocketed to the top of the leaderboard.

Then it fell on Rose who almost had an albatross at 14 and finished at six-under, and then on Rory McIlroy as he roared back into view with a 30-foot putt for an eagle three on the 14th, a bomb that exploded in cheers all over the course and gave the Northern Irishman a share of the lead. He laid up, pitched to three feet, and made a par.

Spieth and Schauffele have parred their first two holes.

However, in a reflection of his final nine holes, the birdie putt did not drop while Molinari's did and it was the Italian who pumped his fist and Woods who patted his back in congratulations.

After pitching back on to the fairway Woods hit a superb third shot to two feet to crucially save par and finish a shot behind clubhouse leader Francesco Molinari, who carded a flawless 65.
