Tommy Fleetwood faces the difficult task of not thinking about a rare English victory as the 149th Open Championship continues at Royal St George's on Friday.
A superb 67 in the tougher afternoon conditions left Fleetwood just three shots off the lead held by Louis Oosthuizen and dreaming of becoming the first English winner since Sir Nick Faldo in 1992.
"Growing up watching the Open it gives very, very special feelings whenever the event comes around," said Fleetwood, who was second to Shane Lowry at Royal Portrush in 2019.
A breezy and overcast start with breaks in the cloud possible by mid-late morning bringing sunny intervals. Any remaining cloud will clear leaving dry, sunny spells. Winds easing a little at 15-20mph.
