2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Dominating, Tiger Woods In Second Place

The third round of the 2012 British Open has belong to Adam Scott all day. After entering the round at -9 overall in the tournament, Scott has shot -3 through 11 holes to take a solid five-stroke lead over the field.

He birdied seven, eight and eleven, and has not gone over par as of yet on any hole. Scott has putted well all day and is avoiding trouble on his drives, which is a recipe for success just about every time you take a golf course.

Tiger Woods sits in second place as of right now. After shooting a 67 on Thursday and Friday (-6 overall), he has improved to -7 after 12 holes. Tiger bogeyed two of his first three holes today, but he's come around nicely as he begins the back nine.

It appears the pressures of a major got to tournament leader Brandt Snedeker. Despite a -10 score through two rounds, Snedeker has five bogies on Saturday and is currently at +4 for the day after 11 holes. He is six strokes back of Scott.
