Els wins British Open as Scott collapses
A BIRDIE on his final hole proved to be the winning shot for Ernie Els in the 2012 British Open at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes. But it didn’t feel like one when he made it.
Adam Scott was in full control of the tournament at the time Els wrapped up his final round 68 and 7-under 273 total.
But Scott lost his focus, his once formidable lead, and his chance to win his first major in the last four holes.
Four shots ahead with four holes to play, Scott bogeyed them all to practically hand Els his second Claret Jug. Noli S. Cruz
