British Open TV Schedule 2012: When and Where to Catch The Open's Final Round
The final round of the 2012 British Open features Tiger Woods and some of the world's best golfers chasing Adam Scott, who leads the field by four strokes. You can catch all of the leaders on TV, as ESPN will be covering all the live action, starting at 6:00 a.m. ET.
Royal Lytham & St. Annes has proven to be a fair test of golf so far, as the multitude of pot bunkers and brutally thick rough have caused many a golfer to lose valuable strokes. But, when the guys can manage to keep their balls in the fairways and manage to hit greens, there are some low scores to be had.
Scott, with his four-shot lead, only needs to make pars tomorrow. If he stays out of trouble and plays a solid round of golf, he'll force the rest of the field to be aggressive on this high-risk, high-reward golf course, and he's likely to win his first career major championship.

Players Who Can Catch Scott
Will anyone beat Adam Scott?
There are three players within five shots of Scott's lead.
We've seen players shoot a 64 on this golf course already this week, so we know it can be done. Obviously, Sunday pins are traditionally the toughest of the tournament, but great players have the ability to rise to the occasion when the chips are down.
Here are the five golfers in position to challenge Scott on Sunday in Round 4.
You can't start a list like this without starting with Eldrick. He's so close to returning to the form that won him 14 major championships, and there's no doubt that he knows it better than any of us.
At six-under par heading into Sunday, Woods has a long ways to go. His best round of the week so far has been a three-under 67, which he carded twice. He'll need to do better than that to catch Scott, though, and I'll be surprised to see him win tomorrow.
McDowell—a Northern Irishman and local favorite—has a terrific chance to catch Scott, as he's only four shots back at seven-under par.
He's never come close to winning the Open Championship, though. In his eight career appearances, McDowell's best showing came in 2005 when he tied for 11th place. He'll be in the final group with Scott, and I can't wait to see the two of them duke it out all day long.
Snedeker was the Round 2 leader at 10-under par. He shot a 64 on Friday, and despite a woeful showing on Saturday that resulted in a three-over par round of 73, he's still in this thing.
He'll be paired with Woods in the second-to-last group, so the crowds that follow Tiger around could become an issue. That said, Snedeker looked so good during the first two rounds that I will be surprised if we don't see another terrific outing from him on Sunday to challenge Scott's lead.
