Westwood, Woods tied for Open lead

The Open Championship’s penultimate pairing is tied for the lead as it heads to the back nine at Muirfield. Tiger Woods and Lee Westwood are both 2 under par for the tournament after making the turn in even-par 36. They’re one shot ahead of Hunter Mahan and Rafael Cabrera-Bello.

Westwood had a three-shot lead after a birdie on the par-3 seventh hole, but made bogeys on Nos. 8 and 9. He also made an eagle on the par-5 fifth hole after holing a putt from off the green.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, the 36-hole leader, two-putted from 15 feet for birdie on the par-5 ninth to shoot 3-over 39 and sit at even par for the championship.

The 2013 Masters champion and runner-up -- Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera -- are two shots off the lead, as are 2009 THE PLAYERS Championship winner Henrik Stenson and Jimenez.
