British Open Leaderboard 2012: Adam Scott Still Leads

When you tie a course record, you're usually feeling pretty good about your standing on the leaderboard.

Adam Scott certainly should be in a great frame of mind after dominating in Round 1 of the 2012 British Open at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

The Australian shot a 6-under 64, giving him the outright lead and aforementioned course record. Scott is one stroke in front of Zach Johnson, Nicolas Colsaerts and Paul Lawrie, who are all finished with their opening 18 holes.

Tiger Woods played very well and looks to be a true force again in the Open Championship. He was able to negotiate the tricky course and ended up 3-under, tied for fifth overall and putting himself in nice position to make a run.

Phil Mickelson was a disappointment, ending Thursday afternoon 3-over. The American had a tough time putting, and ultimately it cost him. Rory McIlroy is right in the chase, only three strokes off the lead with a 3-under.

As for the local side of things, West Chester, PA native Jim Furyk kept himself in the hunt, seven shots off the pace with a 1-over 71.
