British Open at a glance

Now they just want to go play soccer with me.

But Spieth is a 24-year-old with three major titles and many years to get more. "I put good swings on it".

For someone whose self-belief has always seemed unshakeable, the 42-year-old genuinely seemed surprised when it dawned on him that he could have potentially been crowned champion on Sunday after his third-round 66. But as it happens, I shot 67. "I will go try and get my putter going later and then just relax and look forward to dinner tonight", he added.

Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May and was second in the Italian Open the following week, before following a tie for 25th in the US Open with an eight-shot victory in the Quicken Loans National and second place in the Travelers Championship. One day after a bogey-free round of 65 to share the lead, he had a birdie-free round at the worst time.

"Judging by the conditions and what's going to be going on, I would imagine it's going to be more of a grind all day", said Kisner, who has been sharing a house with Spieth and several other American stars in Scotland this week.

"It's one of my better rounds I've played". He hit what appeared to be a round-defining-or tournament-defining or comeback-defining-shot on 10 after hitting 3-wood into a fairway bunker.

And finally, Molinari overcame Carnoustie, which had been a 7,000-yard fescue-lined den of disaster for him - so much so that he conceded to not playing the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in recent years because he wanted no part of playing Carnoustie, which he called "a beast".

This was their chance to help bring Tiger Woods home.

Xander Schauffele, the last hope to keep alive the American streak of five straight majors, was one shot behind until he sent a long iron to the right of the 17th and failed to make a 15-foot putt for par.

Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note
Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby. Rarely has a foreign leader been so mocked on an official visit - London's mayor, a Muslim who has challenged Mr.

If it wasn't exactly Tigermania, it was close. I know that it's going to sting a little bit here, but given where I was" - untold injuries, 12 missed majors this decade, back surgery 15 months ago - "to where I'm at now? Kevin Kisner made his double bogey early.

"It would be, as you said, better on Sunday", Woods said in response to a question afterward. But I love every aspect of my game right now. "I had a chance starting that back nine to do something, and I didn't do it".

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., the lone Canadian in the field, finished at 1 over in a tie for 35th.

Another Englishman, Tommy Fleetwood, moved to six under with a birdie on the first, only to drop four shots in three holes before the turn and end up three under for the tournament with a two-over 73.

The perspective of golf's other top competitors has changed as well now that Woods is back in the picture. He said it had been "everything to make someone nervous" but that he "focused on my process and on hitting good shots and playing smart golf". I'm an imaginative putter, a feel putter. For Jordan Spieth not to make a birdie in a round is hard to believe.

Australian Adam Scott is also at four under after a 68 left him in the hunt.

Not many people imagined it would be the unassuming Molinari who would quietly assemble another brilliant round - no bogeys all weekend - to claim the British Open for his own.

"I'm a little ticked off at myself for sure", admitted Woods, who also bogeyed the 11th. I don't know how she does it.
