British Open 2012: Adam Scott Holds Lead Heading Into Sunday

Heading into the final round of the 2012 British Open, Adam Scott possesses a four-stroke lead over the rest of the field. Scott has long been considered one of the best young talents in golf, and after his play through the first three rounds, he looks set to break through with his first win in a major.

Scott, who sits at -11, is four strokes ahead of both Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker. McDowell closed out the third round with a 67, while Snedeker struggled and shot a 73. Tiger Woods sits at -6 and is five strokes off the lead. He will be paired with Snedeker on Sunday. Zach Johnson and Ernie Els are both six strokes behind Scott.

Luke Donald delivered another steady round, shooting +1, and is 10 strokes behind Scott. Steve Stricker struggled on Saturday and sits at +1 heading into the final round.
