Adam Scott is the leader after three rounds of play at the 2012 British Open, and if Scott can hold onto his four stroke lead he will earn his first ever Major championship. Scott was able to take advantage of Brandt Snedeker's poor round to shoot back to the leaderboard. Snedeker shot a three-over par, round of 73 while Scott shot his worst round of the tournament by shooting a 2-under par, 68 in Saturday's round.
Scott now leads Snedeker and Graeme McDowell by four strokes, and his lead looks to be fairly safe. Tiger Woods is also in contention as he is only in fourth place and is a manageable five strokes back of Scott after shooting even par for his third round.
