Poor finish costs Kuchar in British Open

Pammachio Corsino | 23 Luglio, 2017, 03:06

He shot an even-par 70 and is three under, three off the lead.

"I'm an early riser so I followed the guys going off really early and the first hole looked like to be playing about a par six".

"Not on the good end of the draw, but we seem to have grinded it out", Spieth said.

The former Masters and U.S. Open champion was in form coming into the tournament, after winning the Travelers Championship in his last outing.

On a day when Branden Grace carded the first 62 in a major, McIlroy was unable to make any inroads into Jordan Spieth's lead after failing to build on a good start. After 39 players broke par in the first round, only eight reached red numbers on Friday. This course has a lot of crosswinds, so it's tough to judge how far the ball is going to fly depending on what shot you play.

They will see each other again tomorrow, and they put some distance from everyone else.

Spieth's round was another master class in ball control, the second time this week he has recorded five birdies and no bogeys in 18 holes round Birkdale's hard links.

Rory McIlroy's swagger returned with a superb 68 in brutal conditions to move to one under par and stay firmly in contention to win his fifth major title. He hit another tee shot, this one into a bunker on the left.


"I definitely feel like today was an opportunity lost to get right in the mix going into tomorrow", McIlroy said. "And I needed to - that's the disappointing thing". Ian Poulter said tricky. He had just 43 percent accuracy off the tee and he didn't hole enough putts on the back nine.

Kuchar recovered with a birdie on 17 and a near-birdie on 18 that just slid past the hole. But after being "happily shocked" his ball cleared a bunker and found the edge of the green, Spieth converted his birdie putt while Kuchar lipped out his. Suddenly, Spieth was three shots in front.

"Typically, when I'm walking up to greens, I take out my notes and know where I've been", Spieth said. "Certainly, I'm not out of it".

"It was some of the best golf I have played this year and I am just loving being out there", the 34-year-old from Aberdeen said.

Connelly is a good friend of Spieth, with whom he shares a coach [Cameron McCormick] and management company.

This will be Spieth's third time taking the lead into the final round of a major.

Spieth has a chance to join Jack Nicklaus as the only players to capture three different majors at age 23.

Unlike some American players who grow used to the manicured layouts on which the majority of U.S. Tour events are played, Koepka is a big fan of links courses and the tougher weather conditions often experienced at the British Open. Can Kuchar spoil Spieth's championship run with a great 18 holes on Sunday to win his first major?
