Tiger Woods is hanging around on the leaderboard at The Open. He's currently two shots off the pace set by Francesco Molinari.

Woods was at the top of the table earlier in the day, but a brutal double-bogey on No. 11 dropped him back. He's still in contention though.

Woods just made a huge birdie putt on No. 14 to stay five-under. It was an absolute must-have.

He had to sink it from some distance as well.

Here's the shot.

Tiger has six guys ahead of him, including the current leader Molinari (-7). His odds of winning aren't great, but he's got a shot.

If Tiger wins today, it will be his first major championship in a decade. Tiger fans around the nation have been watching intently all day.
