The coveted Claret Jug is up for grabs as the final round of the 2012 British Open is set to begin early Sunday morning, as Australian Adam Scott will try to fend off competitors with a four-stroke lead entering the day.
Scott's third round 68 put him squarely atop a crowded leaderboard that includes a number of former major champions. Although the 32-year-old Scott has never won a major championship in his career, the talented Aussie has inched closer in recent years. With names like Graeme McDowell, Tiger Woods, Ernie Else and Zach Johnson sure to be right on his tail should he slip up even in the slightest bit, Scott knows that his play on Sunday will need to be near-flawless for him to walk away victorious.
Live television coverage of what should prove to be an extremely exciting final round will begin bright and early at 6:00 a.m. EDT on ESPN. The broadcast will then run until the conclusion of the tournament later in the afternoon, although the final group including Scott and McDowell is not scheduled to being until 9:30 a.m.. In addition to the TV coverage, a live online stream can also be accessed via ESPN's Watch ESPN application and through TheOpen.com, the British Open's official website.
