Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson share the 36-hole lead at Carnoustie, but there are plenty of storylines and challengers heading into the final two rounds.

By Andrew Both CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (Reuters) - Jon Rahm found a fairway with his drive at the seventh hole at the British Open on Friday. "That's out," Rahm cried while his drive was still in the air. "I hadn't missed a driver left all week, and with the wind left-to-right I never expected the ball to go that straight," Rahm told reporters.

A golf bag with President Trump’s name on it is about to be loaded on to Air Force One at Glasglow Prestwick Airport in Scotland on Sunday. (Jeff Mason/Reuters) President Trump did something unusual last weekend. It was not that he played golf on both days; he has done that on 31 of the 78 weekends he has been in office, by our count. It was he admitted he was playing golf. Trump was in Scotland, spending a few days at the Trump Organization property at Turnberry in between meetings with allies and adversaries from NATO and Russia. That trip, he said, would include a bit of golf, his “primary form of exercise.” Trump usually masks how much he plays golf. Then-press secretary Sean Spicer claimed Trump’s

If Rory McIlroy had any lingering doubts over the free-wheeling, all-or-nothing golf he had vowed to detonate on Carnoustie’s tees, they were all but erased on the third of 18 erratic but encouraging opening-round holes. Standing 350 yards from the green, McIlroy dipped into his bag and, to the sound of cheers, withdrew his driver as if he was unsheathing a sword of war. McIlroy was not to be cowed yesterday, by the course or by his critics.

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Brittany Lincicome has a huge hole to climb out of if she hopes to make golf history. Lincicome shot a 6-over 78 in the first round of the Barbasol Championship on Thursday, leaving the LPGA Tour pro's goal of making the cut likely out of reach. Lincicome was hoping to become the second woman to make the cut in a men's event and the first since Babe Zaharias in 1945. She's the first woman to get a PGA Tour start since Michelle Wie a decade ago. Troy Merritt surged to the first-round lead with a 10-under 62, equaling the course record on the Champion Trace course at Keene Trace Golf Club, which is hosting the event for the first time. However, much of Thursday's attention

Justin Rose blamed the clicking of cameras as both major winners and playing partners finished yesterday with one-over rounds of 72 and a nagging sense of what might have been. Defending champion Spieth looked well set having reached the 15th tee at three under without having dropped a shot, but a horror sequence of trips to the fescue, sand, rough and the Barry Burn resulted in a double bogey, bogey, par, bogey finish. In contrast, Rose ended on somewhat of a high with a superb birdie on the 18th, which at least put a smile on his face after a tetchy round.

Forgoing the driving range or the putting green following his round, Tiger Woods instead was headed for the gym late Friday afternoon. Although Woods appeared relatively content -- a second straight 71 gave him consecutive scores of par or better to open a major championship for the first time in five years -- surely there was some angst over a missed birdie putt at the last hole or the two early bogeys that put him in catch-up mode for most of a rainy day at The Open. Rory McIlroy has found a peaceful balance at The Open, comfortably oscillating between patience and risk-taking to get in position for another major title. Woods didn't say so, but getting the poor end of the starting time draw undoubtedly did not sit well, either, a rub-of-the-green scenario that did not favor him this time: the toughest conditions on Thursday and rain throughout his round on Friday.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) — Sandy Lyle of Scotland sent a mid-iron rolling along the crusty turf of Carnoustie to start the 147th playing of the British Open. Lyle was chosen to hit the opening tee shot Thursday morning under a gray sky off the North Sea. He won the Open in 1985. Also in the opening group was two-time major champion Martin Kaymer and Andy Sullivan. They faced a course that was more yellow than green because of the unusually dry summer in Scotland. Carnoustie has been called "Car-Nasty" in recent Opens because it is considered the toughest links in the Open rotation. This year's championship was more of a mystery going into the first round. Fast conditions are difficult, but being

(July 16) Trump looks to shift focus to economy with event, order on workforce After spending days responding to questions about his joint appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump will attempt to shift the White House message back to the economy on Thursday with an event and executive order focused on worker training. White House officials said they will announce commitments from private companies such as IBM and FedEx to create more than 500,000 jobs for

Sports Pulse: USA TODAY Sports' Steve DiMeglio discusses the upcoming tournament and why it will present many obstacles for the golfers. After a top-five finish earlier this month at the Quicken Loans National, Tiger Woods is back on the course this week looking for his first major championship victory since the 2008 U.S. Open. The 14-time major champion is competing in golf's third major, The Open Championship, this week at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland. Tiger last played The Open in 2015, missing the cut and finishing 137th. His career at Carnoustie includes a T47 at the 1995 Scottish Open, he missed the cut the following year, then finished T7 at the 1999 Open Championship and T12 at the
