Biggest Movers of the Day

2 of 2

    The wind finally came to Royal Lytham & St. Anne's, and it has had a strong impact on the scoring today. Most of the players atop the leaderboard have fallen because of the rough conditions, which have steered clear of the course until the final round.

    Therefore, nearly every player has moved down, but none more so than Brandt Snedeker. The leader through 36 holes did sit atop the leaderboard at 10-under par, but he has shot eight-over par in the final two rounds, including five-over par today.

    Joining Snedeker is Zach Johnson and Graeme McDowell, each of whom is four-over par for the day.

    On the other side of the coin is Nicholas Colsaerts. The unknown player has shot up the leaderboard with a scorching round of five-under par and currently sits at one-under par for the championship.
