2012 British Open Leaderboard Update: Adam Scott Retakes Lead After Shooting A 68 In Third Round

Australian Adam Scott took back the lead at the 2012 British Open Championship after shooting a 2-under round of 68. Scott over took the lead from Brandt Snedeker who struggled in Saturday's round by shooting a 3-over round of 73 which included six bogies and three birdies.

Scott now has a four-stroke lead heading into Sunday's round, and if he can remain on top he will win his first ever Major Championship. The closest he came was when he tied for second place at the Masters in 2011.

Chasing Scott is Snedeker and Graeme McDowell who are both four strokes back of the lead. McDowell was able to pull back in contention after shooting 3-under par on Saturday.

Tiger Woods is also hanging around in fourth place after shooting even par in his third round, and he is five strokes back of Scott.
