Tiger Woods is now tied for the lead in the final round of a major golf championship. The 14-time major champion is 7-under par at the British Open.

Woods began the day four strokes back of the leaders, but it only took him eight holes to get to the top of the leaderboard.

The 42-year-old golfer has made two birdies so far this round and had a big par save on Hole No. 8 after hitting his tee shot into the bunker.

Woods, who's benefiting from some bad shots by Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele, rose to the top of the leaderboard after the eighth hole.

People are excited.

The final round of the 2018 British Open is being televised on NBC. We think you're probably going to want to tune in for the final holes.
