2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Leads After 3 Rounds, Has 4-Stroke Lead

The third round of the 2012 British Open Championship is completed and Australian Adam Scott is once again atop the leaderboard. Scott shot a 3-under round of 68 which included three birdies with back-to-back on the seventh and eighth holes. He did have on bogey on the 13th hole which is a par four.

Scott's leads is four strokes and he is looking to be on his way to winning his first ever Major championship; his closest coming to win a Major came when he finished in a tie for second place at the 2011 Masters. Brandt Snedeker and Graeme McDowell are lurking behind Scott in second place and are four strokes back. In fourth place is Tiger Woods who is five strokes back.

Former Georgia Bulldog Bubba Watson rebounded from a very poor second round by shooting a 2-under par 68 for his third round, and that shot him back up to a tie for 10th place. Watson is still nine strokes back of Scott, and could have been even closer if not for two bogies and a double-bogie during Saturday's round.
