The Open tee times today: Day three groups and leaderboard

·2-min read

Former champion Louis Oosthuizen heads into the weekend with a two-shot lead after a record-breaking second round at the 149th Open.

One eagle and four birdies saw the South African score 129 over two rounds, eclipsing the previous best of 130 set by Sir Nick Faldo in 1992 and matched by Brandt Snedeker in 2012.

At 11 under par Oosthuizen was two shots clear of 2020 US PGA champion Collin Morikawa, with three-time major winner Jordan Spieth a stroke further back.

Defending champion Shane Lowry is four under after a superb 65, with Rory McIlroy level par and Bryson DeChambeau making the cut on the mark of one over.
