(LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England) — Adam Scott will finally get a chance to get that long awaited major championship on Sunday. Scott went 2-under 68 that gave him a four-shot lead entering the final round at Royal Lytham & St. Annes on Sunday.
“A four-shot lead doesn’t seem to be very much this year on any golf tournament that I’ve watched,” Scott said. “That doesn’t mean a lot. The good part is if I play a solid round of golf tomorrow, it will be very hard for the others to beat me, and that’s all I’m thinking about.”
As for Tiger Woods, he is five-shots behind Scott after his 70 on Saturday.
“Considering that I got off to such a bad start, I figured if I could get to 1-over par or even for the day through the turn, that would have been a positive going to the back nine,” Woods said. “I actually happened to turn at 1 under for the day, which was a bonus.”
Brandt Snedeker posted a 73 after shooting a 64 on Friday and sits in a tie with Graeme McDowell for second four-shots back of Scott.
“I still have a chance,” Snedeker said. “This course is not playing easy. I showed that today. If you don’t keep the ball in play, you’re going to struggle, and I did not do that today. So you never know what might happen.”
Zach Johnson and Ernie Els are both six-shots back sitting in fifth.
