The first round of the 2012 British Open is nearly at an end on Thursday in Lancashire, England. The current leader is Adam Scott, who closed out his opening round with a stellar 6-under; a score that would be even better were it not for a pair of bogeys on holes three and 18.
Close behind Scott are a trio of golfers tied at 5-under in Paul Lawrie, Zach Johnson and Nicholas Colsaerts. Lawrie and Johnson have wrapped up their rounds for the day, but Colsaerts is only through 17 holes and has an opportunity to tie Scott for the lead.
Tiger Woods finished his round at 3-under and is tied with seven other golfers for fifth place, including Ernie Els and Bubba Watson.
