Scott takes 4-shot lead into Open final

Posted:

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England (AP) -- Adam Scott will take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the British Open.

Seeking his first major title, Scott took control with his third straight round in the 60s on Saturday, giving himself some breathing room as he seeks to become the fifth Australian player to win golf's oldest major championship.

Scott had just one bogey on the way to a 2-under 68 that pushed his total score to 11-under 199. He'll play Sunday with Graeme McDowell, who got in contention at 203 with a 67. Brandt Snedeker, the 36-hole leader who didn't make a bogey over the first two days, had a half-dozen of them in the third round for a 73. He's even with McDowell, four shots back.

Tiger Woods is another stroke behind at 204.
