British Open Leaderboard 2012: Brandt Snedeker Slides, Adam Scott Holds Lead

Round 3 of the British Open has been a near-disaster for former leader Brandt Snedeker, who bogeyed six times through his first 16 holes. He's shooting 4-over on the day so far and has slid into a tie for third. Adam Scott has a firm grasp on the top spot, going 2-under through 16 holes and sitting at 11-under for the tournament.

Scott's closest competition is Graeme McDowell at 7-under, but Tiger Woods isn't far behind, tied for third place with Snedeker at 6-under. After a shaky start that featured two bogeys in his first three holes, Woods has settled down to shoot for par through 16 holes.

Cleveland-area golfer Jason Dufner had a tough day, shooting 3-over for a tournament score of 1-under and dropping 10 places into a tie for 15th.
