Tiger Woods finishes 5 under to fall just short at Open

Tiger Woods finishes 5 under to fall just short at Open”

"Tiger was great today", he said after pocketing the first prize of $1.89 million and becoming Italy's first major victor. "I just saw my ball go right".

The yellow grass of a dry summer in Scotland comes to life Sunday because of a red shirt at the British Open.

"Sometimes I have a few drinks", said Pepperell, who finished as Woods was in the lead.

However, his run of luck came to an abrupt end at the 11th - as did his lead - finding the rough then hitting a spectator before rolling behind a bush and resulting in a double bogey with him exiting the green grim-faced.

He fell to 5 under, a stroke behind four players - Jordan Spieth, Kevin Kisner, Kevin Chappell and Francesco Molinari - heading into the tough back nine at Carnoustie.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have explained their strategy for winning The Open on Sunday, insisting they will both need to get off to a fast start.

"I've played with him before in Ryder Cups and in big occasions, so I knew what was coming, and I was ready for it", added Molinari.

Schauffele was playing in the final pairing at a major for the first time. The 4-shot final-round deficit was his closest to the lead in a major since the 2013 Open at Muirfield, where he was 2 back but tied for sixth. I had to face a little bit of adversity early in the round, and I still gave myself a chance.

Tiger Woods is in contention for the claret jug again.

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. "But they played very well, and congratulations to them". "It was very, very hard", Scott said.

Ultimately, they were just three more players to be denied by the ice-cold Molinari. He shot 66 in the third round to make a move up the leaderboard.

"Making a double there".

Spieth shot a superb six-under-par 65 in benign conditions on Saturday to catapult himself up the leaderboard as he aims to follow in the footsteps of Padraig Harrington, the last player to retain the Claret Jug a decade ago. Pitching back to the fairway instead of going for the green? Not for English golf, which remains without an Open victor since Nick Faldo in 1992, but for Justin Rose, a man who for so long has been dogged by consistent disappointment at British golf's showpiece event.

Australian Open champion Cameron Davis closed with an impressive 1-under 70 to finish in the top 40 on his major championship debut.

Leaders are on the range at the British Open, where they will be greeted by warm breezes in the final round at Carnoustie.

The 24-year-old American needed to eagle the last hole to force a play-off, but his approach landed short, allowing Molinari to celebrate with his caddie and wife. And that immediate reaction was justified: In the stiffest winds of the week, he played his last eight holes in 2 over, missed low on a 6-footer on the final green and wound up in a tie for sixth, three shots behind his playing partner, Francesco Molinari.
