GOLF: Tiger Woods stays in contention at Open

Published:Friday | July 19, 2013 | 1:21 PM

Tiger Woods says he is looking forward to a "fun weekend" after shooting a second-round level-par 71 today at the Open in Scotland to stay in the hunt for his first major since 2008.

The world number one dropped shots at the fourth, eighth and 11th holes, but three birdies, including one at the last lifted the American's spirits.

The 14-time major winner began with two pars before holing an eight-footer to move to three under.

He then missed a short par-putt on the next before tapping in for another birdie on the par-five fifth.

However, Woods began to struggle with the conditions, dropping two more shots before playing more conservatively over the last seven holes.

Six pars were followed with a 10-foot birdie and a celebratory fist-pump at the 18th.

The 37-year-old is playing alongside 2010 US Open winner Graeme McDowell, who also shot 71 to remain on four over for the championship.

Angel Cabrera is leading the championship.
