The stage is set for what should be a wild weekend at the 149th Open Championship. It starts with a top-shelf leader in Louis Oosthuizen, who is going to have to try and stave off some all-time champions behind him, including Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka. What could be more compelling than that?

There are great appetizers at Royal St. George's on Saturday, too. Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy, both of whom are too far back to truly contend for the Claret Jug, will go out early and set the tone for whatever is going to happen later on the day. Open weekends are normally quite dramatic, and this one has all the pieces to fit in nicely with the last decade's worth. One thing we can all hope for this weekend at Royal St. George's is breezier conditions after it got rolled over on Thursday and Friday.

Regardless, the last 36 of the last major of this season should be terrific. Oosthuizen trying to slam the door on his second major (11 years after his first!) and a whole host of multi-time major winners trying to keep him from doing just that.

Settle in for Moving Day at The Open. It's going to be a great one. CBS Sports will update this story with scores and highlights from The Open below. Check out the live scores at the top of this story, a more detailed leaderboard, Round 3 tee times and our complete viewer's guide.

First birdie of the day for Jordan Spieth at No. 2 as he moves to 9 under and within two of Oosthuizen's lead. Now to see if he can get right on the third, which he has bogeyed in each round this week.

Is this any good at all?

All smiles for Jon Rahm. After a slow start with a bogey on No. 1 he has birdied two of his last four. Dropped one in from about 20 feet on no. 6 to move to 6 under for the championship.

Koepka is fading. He's +3 thru 5 and pretty much out of it. I'm surprised but not stunned. He's been battling himself from the opening tee shot (which seems like it happened 23 days ago). He won't get major No. 5 this weekend, but could get his 18th top-15 finish in his last 22 starts at majors (which is wild).

Bogey for Koepka on the second. He follows it up by spraying his driver on the third right into the hay. That's how he started in Round 1 before rebounding with a 1-under 69. He needs to take advantage of some of these holes on the front, though, especially if the wind picks up and conditions worsen.

It's a big day for Scottie Scheffler and Dustin Johnson 🏌️‍♂️ Who's your pick to go lower? #TheOpen

I wrote about this on Friday night. Oosthuizen has closed out his only solo 36-hole lead.

Jon Rahm bogeys the first hole to drop back to -4 on the week, seven back of Oosthuizen with just under two rounds left. That's a lot of ground to make up in two days. He has the goods, but it'll take all kinds of luck, too.
