Scott leads McDowell by two shots in cumulative major score

Through three major championships in 2012, a total of 17 players have played all 12 rounds between the Masters, U.S. Open and Open Championship.

Despite his tragic collapse at Lytham on Sunday, Adam Scott leads the 17 as the lowest aggregate score in the three majors. With a total par of 848 (288 at the Masters, 280 at the U.S. Open and Open Championship), Scott is 4 under par.

Here's the full leaderboard.

1. -4 - Adam Scott
2. -2 - Graeme McDowell
3. E - Matt Kuchar
4. +3 - Lee Westwood
T-5. +4 - Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington
7. +6 - Ian Poulter
8. +7 - Jason Dufner
T-9. +9 - Hunter Mahan, Tiger Woods
11. +12 - Nick Watney
12. +13 - Fredrik Jacobson
T-13. +14 - Francesco Molinari, Zach Johnson
15. +15 - Steve Stricker
16. +16 - Rickie Fowler
17. +24 - Keegan Bradley

One thing to notice: none of the major champions are on the list. Webb Simpson didn't compete at the Open Championship, Bubba Watson missed the cut at the U.S. Open and Ernie Els failed to make the Masters.
