In order to win any tournament, consistency over the course of 72-holes is essential. Through the first three rounds at the 2012 British Open, Adam Scott has been arguably the most consistent golfer, which is why he holds a four-stroke lead heading into the final round.
Scott has been outstanding throughout the tournament, having shot 68 or less in each of the first three rounds. With the course playing tougher than it did over the opening two rounds, Scott managed to shoot a 68 and is now sitting at -11. He will be paired with the local favorite Graeme McDowell, who shot a -3 on Saturday and sits four strokes behind Scott. McDowell is tied with Brandt Snedeker, who will be paired with Tiger Woods on Sunday.
Woods, who shot even par on Saturday, enters the final round five strokes behind Scott. Zach Johnson and Ernie Els both sit at -5.
