British Open 2012 Leaderboard: Where Tiger Woods and Top Contenders Sit

Pete Schauer@@Pete_SchauerCorrespondent IJuly 22, 2012

Adam Scott (-11) is one round away from winning his first career major championship at the 2012 British Open.

The Australian will tee off at 9:30 a.m. EST and holds a four-shot lead over second place American Brandt Snedeker (-7)—with a tee time of 9:20 a.m. EST— who shot a 73 on Saturday after posting back-to-back rounds of 66 and 64.

Scott has been brilliant during the first three days of the tournament, shooting 64, 67 and 68 in the quest of his first major.

In fact, if Scott is able finish -13 under par for the tournament, he would tie Greg Norman's record posted back in 1993 at St. George's, according to Dan Jenkins of Golf Digest.

And of course, we'll all be watching Tiger Woods today, who didn't strike as well on Saturday as he had the previous two days of the tournament.

Woods shot an even 70 on Saturday after firing back-to-back 67's and still finds himself in contention at six under par.

He'll tee off at 9:20 a.m. EST and will look to handle the back nine better than he did on Saturday.

Here's a look at the complete Top 10 leader board heading into the final day of the 2012 British Open.
