    Rose's Saturday 64 matches Carnoustie Open record

    By Ryan LavnerJuly 21, 2018, 1:03 pm

    CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Justin Rose needed to sink a 14-foot putt on the final hole Friday just to make the cut on the number at The Open.

    Freewheeling when he came to the course Saturday, Rose tied the lowest score ever recorded in an Open at Carnoustie.

    Entering the weekend nine shots off the lead, the world No. 3 carded a bogey-free, 7-under 64 to at least make things interesting. It won’t be known for several hours how many shots Rose will be behind, but his back-nine 30 gives him an opportunity, if the wind blows 25 mph Sunday as forecast, to challenge the leaders.

    After all, Paul Lawrie was 10 shots back entering the final round here in 1999.

    “I think the birdie on 18 last night freed me up, and I’m just very happy to be out on this golf course and not down the road somewhere else this morning,” said Rose, who is at 4-under 209. “So that might have been part of the shift in mindset today. I had nothing to lose from that point of view.”

    Rose’s 64 matched Steve Stricker and Richard Green’s record score at Carnoustie (2007).

    It also was Rose’s career-low round in a major.
