    Kevin Kisner

  5. 'My game feels good'

    J Spieth -9 (F)

    Jordan Spieth

    Jordan Spieth, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "Starting from the first tee driving the green was a bonus.

    "I really only had one hole on 12 when I had difficulty and had a par save.

    "They were really nice conditions, as benign as Carnoustie can be.

    "My game feels good. The course does not suit my game, but I have been able to make do and play it into the right spots.

    "Anyone within four or five shots of the lead with the forecast you don't want to be going into the last holes trying to force anything or come from behind. I will just try and play the course the best as I can."

    BBC Sport at Carnoustie

    Jordan Spieth admits that there were two things he did on Saturday morning prior to going out and shooting the six-under-par 65 that earned him a share of the third round lead at The Open.

    He learned a lot from watching the early performers on TV, then he walked into Carnoustie to get his hair cut. So how did it go? “He went a bit high and tight,” smiled Spieth. “A classic £9 British hair cut. Cost me £20.”

  7. 'I have felt good all week'

    Xander Schauffele, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "It is always nice to shoot some red numbers during an Open Championship.

    "I do get nervous, but I remind myself that it is not crazy and I go through my process and I hit a lot of good shots.

    "I felt good warming up and I have felt good all week and I hope to keep that going tomorrow."

  8. 'A frustrating finish'

    R McIlroy -5 (F)

    Rory McIlroy

    Rory McIlroy, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "It was a frustrating finish. I felt walking onto 16 at three under that was good. I am disappointed to drop a couple in the last three holes and I will try and make up for it tomorrow and try and catch the leaders.

    "I would love to be two behind going into the last day instead of four, but there are a lot of guys in with a chance and the wind will be stronger tomorrow and that will give a lot of people hope."

    And that lead is held by three Americans - Kevin Kisner, Xander Schauffele and defending champion Jordan Spieth.

    Spieth was masterful. He hit an eagle and four birdies in his 65. He is bidding to become the first man since Padraig Harrington to win the Open back-to-back.

    Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy came into the day as the home nations' biggest hopes but they couldn't quite mount the charge they were after.

    McIlroy carded a one-under-par round while Fleetwood hit a level par 71.

    They'll both start tomorrow five shots behind the leaders.
