David Duval of the United States tees off on the 2nd hole during the third round of the 144th Open Championship at the Old Course on Sunday, July 19, 2015, in St Andrews, Scotland.

David Duval set the tone for going low in the third round of the British Open.

Duval took advantage of the soft greens and barely a hint of wind to shoot a 5-under 67 in the first group out Sunday. That's his best score in the Open since his closing round 67 to win at Lytham in 2001.

Duval had to birdie the 18th hole to make the cut on the number. He went out in 32 on Sunday and was 6-under through 15 holes. He bogeyed 16 but parred the last two.

At 5-under for the tournament, the 13-time PGA Tour champion is seven shots off the lead heading into Monday’s final round.
