2012 British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott, Ernie Els Tied At 7-Under Through 17

Adam Scott entered the final day of the 2012 British Open with a four-stroke lead over Graeme McDowell. Like much of the field, he has fallen back on a windy day, however, and is now at 4-over through 17 holes, and 7-under overall. Ernie Els finished his day of regulation golf 2-under, and currently sits in the clubhouse tied with Scott atop the leaderboard.

Scott has shot bogey on his last three consecutive holes to set up a potential playoff assuming he can save par on No. 18 at Royal Lytham. That's hardly a given considering his current frazzled state.

Tiger Woods finished his day at 3-over and 2-under overall for the tournament. Brandt Snedeker tied Woods, shooting 4-over.
