2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Maintains Lead As Final Round Winds Down

Adam Scott hasn't been great on Sunday at the 2012 British Open, but he's been good enough to maintain a comfortable lead as the final round nears its end. Scott has shot 1-over on Sunday through 14 holes, bringing his score down to 10-under on the weekend, yet he still holds a four shot lead over the rest of the field.

Scott's closest competitor at the moment is Ernie Els, who has made a run at the title on Sunday. Els has shot 1-under in the final round, which is more impressive than it looks on a day that has seen a majority of the field shooting in the black. Els is through 16 holes at 6-under.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, hasn't shot well in the final round. Woods, who is in Scott's group, is through 14 holes at 3-over, bringing his total score to 3-under, tying him for third with Graeme McDowell.

If Scott can finish his round without a historic collapse, it would be the first major victory of his career. His best finish in a major came in 2011 when he tied for second at the Masters, and he's almost certainly at least guaranteed to top that.
