2012 British Open Leaderboard: Brandt Snedeker Concedes Lead To Adam Scott

Brandt Snedeker had a tough Saturday at the 2012 British Open, losing the top spot on the leaderboard to Adam Scott after hitting six bogeys and shooting a 3-over 73 on the day. At the end of Round 3, he sits in a tie for second place with Graeme McDowell at 7-under for the tournament.

Scott was solid, shooting a 2-under 68 to move to 11-under on the tournament and take sole possession of first place. Tiger Woods had a shaky start to the day, shooting bogeys on two of his first three holes, but soon settled down and ended the round with a par 70. Woods wrapped up his day in fourth place and five strokes behind Scott.

Zach Johnson was one of the big movers in the round, jumping 10 spots into a tie for fifth place with Ernie Els. Johnson shot a 4-under 66 to finish with a score of 5-under through 54 holes.
