Scott eyes first major title at the British Open

Adam Scott will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, positioning himself to become the 16th different major winner in the last 16 major tournaments.

Scott, 11-under, shot a 68 in Round 3. Trailing him is Graeme McDowell, who shot a 67 on Saturday, and second-round leader Brandt Snedeker who struggled with a 73.

McDowell, with solid play tee to green, is again heading into the final round of a major in second place and will play in the final pairing with Scott. Snedeker will be paired with Tiger Woods, who shot 70 in the third round. Woods continued to play conservatively in Round 3, but exhibited some loose iron play. Woods was also less sharp with the putter on Saturday than he was earlier in the week.

Snedeker, who hadn’t made a bogey in his first 40 holes of the tournament, proceeded to drop six shots on the day.

Ernie Els and Zach Johnson both sit six shots back of Scott heading into the final round at 5-under.

Winds are projected to be 25 to 30 mph for Sunday, which will bring Lytham’s nightmarish rough and bottomless bunkers into play — expect ball striking to be at a premium. It could turn into a war of attrition as the players trailing Scott may have to play more aggressively in order to catch him.

    I hope Adam can get the job done. He’s been my favourite golfer for the last 10 years. All of Australia is pulling for him.

    He changed his preparation for the majors this year and it seems to be working well. He has a top 10 at the US Masters, top 15 at US Open and now most certainly at the worst a top 5 at the British.

    Good luck tomorrow Adam!
