It's time for the grand finale at the Open Championship, and with Adam Scott leading the way, this ought to be another thriller.

Scott is currently at nine under par, with a four-shot lead. Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker are lurking close behind at five under par.

Here's a live update on some of the top stars at the Open Championship.


Tiger Woods (-4)

Tiger Woods has had a bit of a meltdown and has fallen all the way back to four under par. Woods made a triple-bogey on the sixth hole after finding the greenside bunker.

Woods birdied the par-five seventh to bounce back after the disastrous sixth. He is now a good five shots behind leader Adam Scott and has some catching up to do. 


Adam Scott (-9)

Adam Scott started the day at 11 under par and has dropped two shots since.

He may be feeling the Open Championship pressure, and with big names like Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell trailing him closely, he really needs to get his game together.


So far, Scott has been flawless, executing his game plan the first three days. Now, he needs to trust his game more than ever if he wants to win.


Luke Donald (-1)

It looks like Luke Donald's hopes at winning an Open title are now gone. The current world No. 1 is now at one under par. He's about to finish up his round, so if he can make a few birdies coming in, he can still finish strongly. 


Graeme McDowell (-5)

Graeme McDowell is now two over par for the day and five under overall. He made two bogeys through his first six holes and is now trailing Adam Scott by four shots.

He's wrapping up his front nine, so he'll have to be brilliant on the back if he wants to win.
