Brandt Snedeker was unable to hold onto his 36-hole lead as he faltered and Adam Scott battled back to regain the lead. 

Tiger Woods started the day four shots back and finished five back.  Graeme McDowell made a late run to get within four himself.

Adam Scott is looking to win his first major and become the 16th player in the last 16 majors to hoist a trophy.  He appears to be in the driver's seat the way he's played the first 54 holes.
