American Brandt Snedeker leads the 2012 Open Championship at 10-under par and one stroke clear of Australia’s Adam Scott.
But now looming large in the final round picture is 14-time Major winning, Tiger Woods.
Woods clawed his way up the board on day two adding a second straight 67 to move to six under par and capping his round by holing a brilliant bunker shot at the last.
A total of 83 players made the halfway cut on three over par including former Open Champions Paul Lawrie (four under par) and Ernie Els (three under par).
World No. 1 Luke Donald is at two under par and with 1989 Open winner, Mark Calcavechhia on one under par.
Biggest disappointment on day two was the effort of World No. 2 Rory McIlroy, who shot a 75 to fall back into a share of 51st place at two over par.
Misssing the cut were the likes of Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia who played alongside Woods for the first two rounds.
And former 1996 Lytham Open winnner, Tom Lehman also missed the cut as did 2001 winner at Royal Lytham, David Duval, and with both players finishing at five over par.
