The Open Championship 2012 Results: Martin Laird Bottoms Out With Disastrous Third Round

Colorado State graduate Martin Laird shot a 69 in two rounds and a 70 in another round at the 2012 British Open, which could've put him in contention for a top-10 finish, if not the title outright. But in his third round this past Saturday, Laird shot a whopping 82, good for 12-over, which put him far away from the top-50.

Laird finished tied for 72nd place at 11-over for the weekend, which was the third highest score amongst players who made the cut. Laird's 82 on Saturday was tied for the highest score in any round amongst players who made the cut (83rd place finisher Andres Romero shot an 82 on Sunday), and the second highest round at the 2012 British Open outright (two golfers who missed the cut shot an 83 on Friday.)
