Scott leads McIlroy by 4 shots at Australian Open

SYDNEY — Adam Scott shot a 4-under 68 today to take a four-shot lead over Rory McIlroy heading into the final round of the Australian Open and move closer to a Australian triple crown.

Scott shot a course record 62 on the first day and followed with a second-round 70. Today's round of six birdies and two bogeys moved him to 16-under 200 for the tournament.
