British Open 2012 Leaderboard: Cut Line Could Be 1-Over

Adam Scott's record-tying first round at the 2012 British Open was good enough to get him the lead after the first day at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. But he's not nearly clear of a pack that tore up the course on Thursday.

Scott's 6-under 64 in the first round has him just one shot ahead of Zach Johnson, Paul Lawrie and Nicolas Colsaerts, all of whom fired 5-under 65s. Brandt Snedeker is alone in fifth at 4-under, and then come eight players who got around in 3-under on Thursday, including former Open Championship winners Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson and U.S. Open champions Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.

That bodes ill for Scott: He has seven top-10s at majors but no wins, and has been cited as one of the better players on the PGA Tour to never claim a major championship.

Players who can't get into whispering distance of red numbers when Friday's second round may not see the weekend. The cut at the British Open includes the top 70 players and ties, and the projected cut line for the 2012 British Open is currently 1-over, where 41 players sit, tied for 54th.
