the next half an hour but let's get straight to the golf, it's moving day at the open, the third round at carnoustie and it is turning into a thriller, the top of the leaderboard could hardly be tighter. the benign conditions on the east coast of scotland have helped. justin rose, who just made the cut, set the tone with a blistering round of 64, but others have followed, including tiger woods who shot his lowest round at a major since 2011. let's cross live to carnoustie now and speak to live john watson. john? not almost perfect conditions. who has been making it today? perfect conditions as you say. an open championship which is proving too
close to call at this stage. a little bit of wind, no rain today, very different from those conditions we saw yesterday morning. it certainly helped some low scoring out there today, benefiting the players, and one in particular, the round of the day, justin rose, hugely impressive from him, when you consider he very nearly did not make the cut last night. he needed a birdie on the last to just the cut last night. he needed a birdie on the last tojust sneak in to the field today. producing a really impressive round of 64. the joint lowest open round here at carnoustie. the story of the day, it has been reserved for tiger woods. he isa has been reserved for tiger woods. he is a name familiar to many. he has been reserved for tiger woods. he is a name familiarto many. he is back on the leaderboard at five under. just a few shots off the lead and giving the spectators here a sense that he could produce something magical tomorrow. adam wilde can tell us. they called saturday the open moving day. now the real competition gets going. leading the way, justin rose, no one has ever done better
carnoustie. being bushmen commending the early attention until tiger can't attain. tiger woods three times a champion, reminding everyone what the game is has been missing. whilst he was moving up the leaderboard, others were following. an early eagle, an ominous sign. the open now wide open, this was tommy fleetwood taking a share of the lead. there were plenty of course to wrestle it away again. the american pairof wrestle it away again. the american pair of zachjohnson wrestle it away again. the american pair of zach johnson and wrestle it away again. the american pair of zachjohnson and kevin kisner remained amongst the players to catch and with competition is fierce, no one yet seems making themselves at home on moving day. adam wilde, bbc news. young let's take a look at the leaderboard. jordan spieth out in front, he got his round off superbly
at the start, eagle in the first, and then kevin kisnerjust one shot behind on eight under and then zach johnson and rory mcilroy a couple shot further back on six under, tommy fleetwood has dropped back to three under but then we can see tiger woods without really impressive round today. you just wonder what he could produce tomorrow. you do wonder. he blew hot and cold, tiger woods, across the first two his round rounds, really got the galleries going. justin rose, who almost makes the cut, he suddenly went on a charge as well. they have been real highlights. they have been. you just have to look at the crowds following tiger woods around here. when you consider he has missed the last two opens, hasn't he? the battles with form and fitness and the injury problems he has had, the surgery to fuse those
vertebrae on his back, nobody envisaged he would be where he is at five under par at this stage. justin rose as well, coming into this, he was saying he has been playing some of the best golf and fills in the best form of his career so far and here this weekend, he could move to world number one in his first open championship, remarkable to think thatjustin rose, championship, remarkable to think that justin rose, 20 championship, remarkable to think thatjustin rose, 20 years ago, ellis is best open finished and he was tied for fourth. he chipped in brilliantly as an amateur but that, tied for fourth place brilliantly as an amateur but that, tied forfourth place is his best finish today. you just wonder now what he can produce because he is a man reborn today after the disappointing showing yesterday when he narrowly speak the field, but really impressive with those seven birdies and you wonder what he can produce tomorrow depending on how far those leaders push away from it, let's hear it from the man at the moment, justin rose would that really impressive round. one bad
down, one poor tee shot, really impressive round. one bad down, one poortee shot, i concentrated well today, i felt a bit more in control, him again in my swing and to keep it clean on this course leads to good stuff. the british women's open champion is with me and you are following tiger woods. how close do you think he needs to be to those leaders to get the challenge. he had a fantastic opportunity today to put pressure on the leaders today and he finished at five under. i do not believe he is close enough. he only has two rounds of 65 or better on his whole playing career of 65 or better on his whole playing careerandl of 65 or better on his whole playing careerand i do of 65 or better on his whole playing career and i do believe that he needs to be a little bit more comfortable with going lower because if the conditions are as they are, tomorrow, i think that the scoring is going to be out there still. what will they do with the pin positions? as you know they could have the
option to toughen up the course. we have seen some low scores out there. do you think they will do that tomorrow? that were really clever today. they put the pens and some great locations for the players, just to go out there and attack. we have seen the scoring cause of it. tomorrow i think there will be a little tougher on them. it taught them a little bit. it will make it really ha rd them a little bit. it will make it really hard for somebody like justin rose or tiger woods to try and make up rose or tiger woods to try and make up ground tomorrow because it will bea up ground tomorrow because it will be a difficult golf course. it will play tougher because of where they placed those pants. they'll be tucked behind bunkers and is almost impossible to get within 15 or 20 feet of them. we will see it richer european topple? do you think they could turn around here? we have some really good options. rory mcilroy is still out on the course now. he is at five under par, and has a great opportunity, and one person to really look out for is francesco molinari. he was six under par for the tournament, he has had two wins and two second— place
the tournament, he has had two wins and two second—place finishes in his la st and two second—place finishes in his last five events. i think he is a player that is informed. he has got a great deal of confidence and he would dearly love to have his name on thatjob. would dearly love to have his name on that job. many thanks for that. we talked about toughening the course and of course we have a number of big names not here. dustin johnson, the world number one, justin thomas, it just johnson, the world number one, justin thomas, itjust goes to show how tough this course is. when they are not making the weekend but as far as this open championship goes, it isa far as this open championship goes, it is a very open open and it is really anybody‘s. it is a very open open and it is really anybody's. many thanks indeed. fourfor robbery, much four for robbery, much to delight of the home crowd. our deborah porter is that the circuit. last time out, lewis hamilton might have celebrated
pole position but when he came erase, and his contact sent him to the back of the field. it was another crushing blow in his champion should challenge. this weekend, things have not started much better. with a hydraulic failure for the champion. this was the moment lewis hamilton's hopes went up in a cloud of dust. hitting it damaged his mercedes to the point he could not continue in qualifying. loss of hydraulic. he tried to get back to the pits to fix it but was too far out. getting stranded on the track leads him down in 14th on the grid. it will make closing the gap to championship leader sebastian and almost impossible task. and to compound the problem, the circuits that usually favour mercedes are now being tamed by for robbery. hamilton's team—mate set the time to be but the celebrations were short—lived. he smashed a by two
tenths of a second, delighting his fa ns tenths of a second, delighting his fans with the fifth pole of the season. fans with the fifth pole of the season. the last time this race was held two years ago, hamilton led every lap. he will be confident of matching on saturday to win for the first time. lu ifell into matching on saturday to win for the first time. lu i fell into one of the car could do it. sometimes you just know. you still have to do it. it just kept just know. you still have to do it. itjust kept getting better and i knew that for the last lap i had a little bit in me and i was able to squeeze everything out so still a bit full of adrenaline. lewis hamilton after the sessions told me, when i asked him if it was the bumping violently on a curve that cause a hydraulic failure he said, no, but it's a book quickly turns out that mercedes have gone forward and saying that initial hit to the curb because the hydraulic failure and subsequent power steering and loss of it continued the rumbling on. whatever happens, it is one to bea on. whatever happens, it is one to be a very tough day in office for lewis hamilton as he clawed his way back from 14th on the grid. geraint thomas is still wearing
the leaders yellowjersey at the tour de france. he kept his rivals in sight during stage 14 including the reigning champion and team sky colleague chris froome. thomas' lead is still over a minute and a half. froome had liquid thrown at him during the stage as he and thomas finished 18 minutes behind today's stage winner. the spaniard omar fraile reeled in a breakway rider with a gutsy finish in the ardeche for his maiden win on the tour. tim hague reports. with thomas holding a 99 second lead over chris froome and only eight stages to go, he is now the favourite for the tour. there is no doubt the road to victory would not bea doubt the road to victory would not be a straight one. there is also no doubt that team sky are controlling this race. yet for mac continues to keep a watchful eye on his team—mate. but another hot day in the saddle, they walk the tightrope early. 13 men taking the plunge at over 150 come on mars in the end of only omar had a chance of winning
it, with a brute final climb. the former tired and the letter went passing. thomas and froome were nearly two minutes behind with a four—time winner again having to deal with provocation. water thrown at him this time, but the team—mates crossed the line together. it is as you work in the general classification and thomas still leads by 99 with seven stages to go. tim hague, bbc news. world cup fever has returned this weekend, as the women's hockey world cup got under way in london. ireland are taking on the united states right now but england began their bid for home glory earlier this afternoon against india at the lee valley stadium, from where we can talk to our reporterjo currie. jo, it was perhas not the result england wanted? just did not take the chances when they there to date? yes, that h
draw. that would have blown too many people away. i suspect the team will see it as a solid start of the tournament and a satisfactory result at best. there ranked tenth in the world and i suspect they were a little too nervous around the ailing team. let's take a look at how the day has unfolded. a home world cup only comes around once in a lifetime and when it rolls in to london, no one wants to miss out. the golden girls, the star attraction on the opening day. not even the sweltering heat stops 10,500 people coming to children on england. one world cup can women's england set it alight. they make a bid for the first time. with the atmosphere bubbling, in the push toward early on but again and again chances with begging. and then they were made to route those missed opportunities went in the assignments the stadium. goal given.
pride dented but still intact. a change of events brought a change of pace. you need a captain to lead from the front. she tried but could not find her way through. with time running out, in the went for broke, forfeiting matti, with almost insta nt forfeiting matti, with almost instant success. with this also touches, to make a big difference. the draw was rescued and fans had a new hero saw blew it was a really daunting experience to play in front of this many people, supporting us, you just want to do everything to make them proud and yes, i am very very emotional about it, how would people have come out to see us. it definitely put us out the last quarter and you feel like everyone is behind you and wishing you. not the dumbest portents everyone has expected, but very much intact. ireland in action against
the united states right now, their first world cup in 16 years. they'll be looking to make their mark. yum at that is the match that you can currently see, the players coming back out behind me. ireland leading to one. earlier today, they took 31 winners over south africa. you'll see tonight in pool d, it is going to be australia versus japan. plenty more hockey to come for queen elizabeth to park in london. that in work performance earlier today, we are joined work performance earlier today, we arejoined by former work performance earlier today, we are joined by former england and work performance earlier today, we arejoined by former england and l fielder, helen, afterall the arejoined by former england and l fielder, helen, after all the hype for him, she probably seen as a disappointment? i definitely think the team will be disappointed in the draw, obviously they wanted to get off toa draw, obviously they wanted to get off to a good start with three points on the board and with the world ranking suggesting it should be india but it did not happen today and that is why we lust for. you do
not know what is going to happen. i think there are some positive. england should take up again, they we re england should take up again, they were in control, and created so many more chances, just did not put them away. india had one chance and scored. that happens. they are going to go back, reviewed again, see what they can do better and hopefully come out on wednesday against usa in a much better frame come out on wednesday against usa in a much betterframe of mind. come out on wednesday against usa in a much better frame of mind. we talk about opportunity. they had sure quarter after short order. they're trying to improve that before the usa game. what can we expect that that's? the short corners is quite key in any tournament. if they are going to question tournament they are going to going to have to improve on that rate. the usa england game will be a feisty affair iam sure. england game will be a feisty affair i am sure. it will be a high tempo match. hopefully england will play a much higher tempo. ireland are giving the usa game right here now at the moment so we will see about that game on wednesday. we will do. usa getting slammed within it. you can usa getting slammed within it. you ca n follow usa getting slammed within it. you can follow the match on the bbc
