British Open Leaderboard: Adam Scott Might Win His First Major; Tiger Woods Probably Won't Rally to Victory

British Open important facts!

* This will probably be the 10th straight major that ends with a 1st-time winner. Adam Scott the leader by four shots, has never won a Major. Neither has Brandt Snedeker, who is tied for 2nd place.

* Graeme McDowell, who was terrific Saturday and is tied with Snedeker four shots back, has won a Major. The US Open in 2010.

* Tiger Woods is five shots back, but has never come-from-behind after 54 holes to win a major. His Major-less drought is likely to continue.

* For our South African readers who love Ernie Els … sure, I guess he could pull it off. He’s won the US Open twice and the British Open once (2002), but is six shots off the pace.
