Adam Scott Leads the Open Final Round by Four Shots

Adam Scott Leads the Open Final Round by Four Shots

 

The final round of the British Open will be led by Adam Scott with four strokes. This must be his best chance for the long awaited major championship.

Scott had two key par saves early in the game and another three birdies which allowed him to pull away further. He finished the game with a score of 2-under 68. He shared, “It was all pretty solid stuff, considering the circumstances and how much trouble there is on this golf course.”

Many players believe that the biggest challenge in the next game is the weather. Wind is forecasted to gust up to 40 kph. “It will be in Adam’s hands tomorrow if the conditions are as straightforward as they have been the last few days. Throw a bit of wind across this course like perhaps they are forecasting, he will have to go and work a lot harder and he will have to go win it,” said Graeme McDowell who will be playing against Scott in the final group.
Scott won his first major World Golf Championship at Firestones last year after switching to the long putter early of 2011. He played a beautiful opening shot from the back of a wet sand bunker at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes putting it to a par from a distance of 8 feet. He made another par putt on the third hole with the same distance.

“To make a nice putt like that on the first and make par is obviously very settling. And then to do the same thing on 3, that’s been a hole that I haven’t parred this week. From there on, I was very settled into the round and started hitting fairways and greens,” he said.
