2012 British Open Leaderboard: Red Numbers Hard To Find In Final Round

As the leaders of the 2012 British Open make their turn towards the back nine, there's probably not a single player that's terribly happy with their play.

Of the current top ten players on the leaderboard, only Luke Donald, who is tied for seventh with two other golfers, is under par on his round today.

But he's only 1-under on the day and 2-under for the tournament. He's not even really in contention.

Whether it's Adam Scott unable to make putts, Brandt Snedeker unable to handle the pressure of the final day of a major championship, or Tiger Woods making enemies with Royal Lytham bunkers, no player in any of the final groups is stepping up their game through the first nine holes.

It's very common to see the leaders come back to the field on Sundays of major championships. The pin placements get tougher, the greens a bit faster, the pressure a bit more real; but at this point nobody is going to run away with this tournament, and the Claret Jug may be awarded to the player who either screws up the least, or finds a way to start putting together a string of birdies on the back nine.
