Rory McIlroy turns 23 today. His swing has apparently not changed much.

@McIlroyRory Turned 23 today… Check out this video of me on my 3rd Birthday – Not much has changed in 20 years! http://t.co/tG2gU2Nr


Soccer legend Wayne Rooney is apparently very good at golf ... in video games. Graeme McDowell took notice.

@Graeme_McDowell RT @WayneRooney Playing tiger woods13 head to head and got beat on 26 under after 18, guy who beat me was -30 >> hope your playing as Gmac


Tiger Woods did an interview this week from his couch. Brittany Lincicome picked a better spot to do one.

@Brittany1golf This is how I'm going to start doing all my interviews :-). Don't think the guy believed me. Haha http://t.co/gpm51JG6


Rookie Russell Knox had some unwanted time in the water yesterday.

@rooknox I wonder why my golf ball wanted to go in water 3 times today?? My conclusion : it was 92degrees out and it wanted to cool off. #yuk


Meanwhile, Steve Wheatcroft had a very good day.

@wheatiePGA Can't get back on the course fast enough. By far my favorite course and tournament of the year. Ready for a great round tomorrow #red#'s


And, finally, Kris Blanks found a gift for fellow pro Rickie Fowler to use when he deals with his Twitter detractors.

@KrisBlanks Hey @RickieFowlerPGA I found some hats for you!! http://t.co/cGelgL2F

Watch: All of Tiger's Rd. 3 birdies at The Open

By Golf Channel DigitalJuly 21, 2018, 2:44 pm

Tiger Woods started the third round of The Open at even par, having made seven birdies and seven bogeys over the first 36 holes at Carnoustie.

Following three pars to start on Saturday, Woods went on a birdie binge.

No. 1 came with this putt at the par-4 fourth.


No. 2 with this two-putt at the par-5 sixth.


No. 3 thanks to this 30-footer at the par-4 ninth.


No. 4 after nearly jarring his approach shot on the par-4 10th.


And No. 5 when he almost drove the green at the par-4 11th and two-putted, from just off the green, from 95 feet.


At 5 under for the day, and 5 under for the championship, he was one off the lead at this point.

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.
