Saturday's Birdies And Bogeys

July 21, 2012
Who were the winners and losers on Saturday at the Open Championship? Let's take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.
Adam Scott

Birdie: Adam Scott

A "birdie" all three days thus far at the Open, Adam Scott is only one stroke off the 54-hole record set by Tom Lehman at Royal Lytham in 1996. Impressive all week, Scott played a meticulous third round, relying on crisp ball-striking and solid putting to go out in two-under 32 on the front before cruising in at even par on the back nine. His 199 through three rounds marks only the second time a golfer has been under 200 strokes heading into Sunday at the Open, and leaves him in his best position to capture his first major title.
