Scottish Open Day 3 recap: Justin Rose and Marc Warren tied for lead

By Taylor Ellis ,

Justin Rose and Marc Warren are tied for the lead at the Scottish Open in Aberdeen at 10-under-par.

Rose shot a 5-under 66 on day three to move into a share of the lead. He posted the joint lowest round of the day and had the best back nine of the field, according to Fox Sports.

"Probably my second round at Congressional and this round are two of the best I've played all year. I felt like I got it close to the hole many times out there, which on a links course is hard to do,” said Rose.

Warren held a three-shot lead halfway through the third round. Warren, a native of Scotland, will face off against England’s Rose on Sunday.

"For a Scottish guy, it doesn't get much better than this. It's our fifth major. I've been in this situation before, so once the gun goes I'll be ready to do my job," said Warren.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson shot a round of 70, including bogeys at 16 and 18, according to Sky Sports.
