British Open Round Three: Reaction from Scott, McDowell, Tiger


LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND – Adam Scott’s impressive week at Royal Lytham & St Annes continued Saturday as the Australian fired his third straight round in the 60s to take a four-shot lead into Sunday’s final round.

Scott’s 68 has him 11-under for the tournament, four strokes better than Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker. Snedeker, who started the day at -10, struggled all day but rallied for two birdies in the final three holes to get back to -7 overall.

Tiger Woods is one shot farther back at -6 after an even-par 70 on Saturday.
