British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Leading, Bubba Watson Four Shots Back

First round play at The Open Championship 2012 is underway and Adam Scott has jumped out to a big lead in the early going. Scott is currently 7-under through 16 holes and has a two shot lead over Zach Johnson.

Graeme McDowell, Paul Lawrie and Tiger Woods are all three shots back at 4-under. Bubba Watson is currently tied for sixth place at 3-under.

Watson was 3-under on the front nine after birdies at five, seven and eight. He got to 4-under with a birdie on the par-5 11th but his first bogey of the round at No. 13 dropped him back a stroke.

Matt Kuchar is currently tied for 12th place at 1-under. Kuchar saw his round get off to a tough start with back-to-back bogeys on the second and third holes. He has since responded with birdies at eight and then at 10 and 11 to get back under par for the round.
