BLOG: Something Adam Scott can smile about

Through three of the 2012 Major championships, Australia's Adam Scott has the best aggregate score...

A total of 17 players who made the cut in both the Masters and the US Open, made the weekend at Royal Lytham.

They are the only players to have completed all 12 2012 Major rounds and can be considered among the most consistent on the planet.

Australia’s Adam Scott, who missed out on the Claret Jug thanks to four late bogeys at Royal Lytham, is leading the way with a cumulative total of four under.

His scores of 288 at the Masters, 280 at the US Open and 280 at the Open Championship, mean he has a two-shot cushion over Graeme McDowell, who has played in Sunday’s final group in both the US Open and Open Championship. He is the only other player in red figures.

Interestingly, not one of this year’s champions is on the list. That’s because Ernie Els did not play in the Masters (he didn’t qualify), Bubba Watson missed the cut at the US Open, and Webb Simpson skipped Royal Lytham to be with his newborn child.
