2012 British Open: Final Round TV Coverage, Streaming, Live Updates And More

With a four-stroke advantage on the field, 54-hold leader Adam Scott will hope to pull off his first career major title on Sunday as the fourth and final round of the 2012 British Open gets underway from Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club.

Scott, who at 11-under par sits an impressive four shots ahead of contenders Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker, carded a 68 on Saturday for his third straight round in red figures. Looming large outside the final group is a trio of former major champions in Tiger Woods (6-under), Ernie Els (5-under) and Zach Johnson (5-under). If Scott is unable to handle the pressure that goes along with entering the final day of a major with an all-too-comfortable lead, then look for proven names like Woods and Els to remain in the hunt for the long haul.

Live television coverage of the final round, as always, can be seen on ESPN, and will begin at 5:00 a.m. CST and run until the tournament wraps up later in the afternoon. To watch the tournament online, you can utilize a live stream at either ESPN3 or, the British Open's official website. Although the final group will not officially tee off until 8:20 a.m., it will be interesting to see how the day's weather conditions affect some of the initial players on the course.
