Rhys Enoch continued to go in the right direction in the British Open.

Enoch, a former All-American golfer at East Tennessee State, shot a one-under-par 70 at Carnoustie on Saturday, his first subpar round in a major championship.

A day after making the cut on the number, Enoch had seven birdies during the third round, including three in a row on the front nine just after making back-to-back bogeys. That was tempered by six bogeys, but he still managed to finish under par.

It left Enoch at two over par through 54 holes, good for a tie for 56th. He played with Masters champ Patrick Reed, who shot a 68 to move into a tie for 40th.

Jordan Spieth, Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele share the lead at nine under par heading into the final round.

Enoch, playing in his second major, is paired with Matthew Southgate of England in Sunday’s final round. They tee off at 10:05 a.m. BST (5:05 a.m. EDT).
