Tiger Woods is on absolute fire.

Through 14 holes, Woods, who entered the day at even par, is six under on the day.

Woods shot 71s on Thursday and Friday, not great scores, but good enough to keep him hanging around. Today, he has birdies on 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, and most recently, 14.

That last birdie put him in a tie for the lead at -6. The top of the leaderboard is a strong one, with Jordan Spieth, Tommy Fleetwood, Kevin Chappell, Kevin Kinser, and Zach Johnson also at six-under.

Here is the shot that got Tiger Woods tied for the British Open lead.

He came pretty close to a long Eagle putt, setting up a tap in for that sixth birdie of the day.

This is the round that Tiger Woods fans have been waiting for for a long time. The moment that he hit that putt, Twitter erupted.

Woods' last PGA Tour win came in 2013. That year, he won five tournaments, but did not win a major.

The last time he finished with a lead on Saturday of a major tournament? The 2009 PGA Championship. In that tournament, he struggled on Sunday and finished in second place behind Yang Yong-eun.

His last major win came in 2008 at the U.S. Open in Torrey Pines. We don't want to get ahead of ourselves yet, but if Tiger is in contention, Sunday is going to be incredible.
