2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott In A Dominant Position

With just one round of golf remaining in the 2012 British Open at Royal Lytham and St. Anne's, Adam Scott is completely in control.

The Australian shot a 68 on Saturday, putting Scott four strokes ahead of second place Brandt Snedeker with a score of 11-under. Tiger Woods continues to lurk in the distance, but still is somewhat distant at 6-under for the tournament.

It will be near impossible if Scott shoots an even round of 70 tomorrow for anyone else to catch him. Woods and Snedeker would have to be impeccable, but they remain viable to win the Open Championship. Ernie Els and Zach Johnson have a punchers chance, with both being tied for fifth place at 5-under.

The forecast in England calls for good weather, perhaps playing into underdog hopes with better opportunities for birdies.

Keegan Bradley, a native of Woodstock, VT shot a 68 in the third round and currently sits tied for 25th at 1-over.
