2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Alone At Top, Tom Lehman Struggles Late In First Ronud

A triple-bogey on No. 18 was a rough finish to an otherwise decent first round for Austin, Minn., native Tom Lehman at The Open Championship.

The final hole resulted in a round of a 3-over 73 for Lehman, which has him tied for 99th place. Lehman was one-under after the front nine and recorded just one bogey on the back nine until No. 18.

Adam Scott is atop the leaderboard after shooting a 6-under 64. If he had birdied No. 18 instead of bogey it, he would have shot the lowest round in a major championship. Scott scored three birdies and one bogey on the front nine, with five birdies and the one bogey on the back nine. From holes 11-16, Scott birdied five of the six holes.

Zach Johnson, Nicholas Colsaerts and Paul Lawrie are one stroke behind Scott. Some notable names, including Tiger Woods, are tied for sixth after a 3-under 67. Here is the full leaderboard and below is the top 10.
