Tiger Woods' British Open hopes may have gone up in smoke after he wound up in a deep greenside pot bunker on hole No. 6, leading to a triple-bogey and dropping him to 3-under par, six shots back of leader Adam Scott.
Scott, who began the day at 11-under, just bogeyed No. 6, dropping him to 9-under par. Graeme McDowell, Scott's playing partner, wound up in the aforementioned 'Tiger Bunker' on No. 6 leading to a bogey and dropping McDowell to 5-under par overall.
Despite Scott's bogey on the sixth hole, he owns a four-shot lead over Brandt Snedeker after the American posted a double-bogey on No. 7. Snedeker just yanked his drive on the par-4 eighth hole to the left rough, so he's in danger of dropping even further.
The 'pack' behind Scott has yet to make a move today, so the Australian can perhaps play conservatively with the knowledge that he doesn't need to go low today.
