Open Championship leaderboard 2018 LIVE: Latest golf scores as Jordan Spieth launches defence, Rory McIlroy challenging

The Open Championship often provides golf’s toughest test, and Carnoustie presents the sternest challenge of all courses on the rotation.

Housemates Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner set the pace as Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy headed the European bid to end American dominance of golf's majors.

Johnson, who is looking to become the first player in history to win major titles at Augusta, St Andrews and Carnoustie, added a 67 to his opening 69 to set the clubhouse target on six under par.

First-round leader Kisner looked set to surpass that with ease when he birdied the 13th and 14th to reach eight under, only to hit his second shot to the 18th into the Barry Burn and run up a double-bogey six.

That meant Fleetwood was just a shot off the lead after earlier defying miserable conditions to card the only bogey-free round of the day, his flawless 65 just two shots outside the course record he set in last year's Dunhill Links Championship.
