Ernie Els gives the Claret Jug a smooch after he clinches his second British Open championship, rallying from six shots down on Sunday. Els' last birdie drew him even with Adam Scott, who bogeyed his last four holes, and Els won when Scott missed a 10-foot par putt on No. 18.
Making it look Easy
Ernie Els locks up the fourth major title of his career with consecutive rounds of 68 — especially impressive in Sunday's difficult conditions.
The second of many golf entries on this list, Scott seemed to have his first major victory within reach at the 2012 British Open — until it blew up in his face. Four shots ahead with four holes to play, after eight straight holes with nothing worse than par, Scott bogeyed them all, allowing Ernie Els to steal a one-shot win, and had to fight back tears on the 18th green as the magnitude of his meltdown began to sink in.
Adam Scott was four shots ahead with just four holes remaining, but his long putter, which has been a source of controvery, failed him repeatedly
Despite striking the ball well, Adam Scott implodes on the back nine and ends up with a 5-over 75 in the final round. He still takes second place, but it isn't pretty.
Tiger Woods starts the tournament looking sharp, but he's not able to get over the hump and shoots a 3-over 73 in the final round, including a disastrous triple-bogey on the sixth hole.
Tiger Woods' triple-bogey on the sixth hole, which included two tough shots from the bunker, cripples his run at the title.
Good for a laugh
Tiger Woods is able to joke with Brandt Snedeker before teeing off, and Snedeker is able to smile after blowing his third-round lead.
Bubba Watson got off to a slow start Sunday and eventually finished tied for 23rd place.
There will be blood
Another McIlroy victim? No, just another golf nut ready for a British Open battle.
0 for 19
Lee Westwood makes it 0 for 19 at the British Open, finishing at 6 over with a 72.
Another British under his belt
Five-time Open champ Tom Watson finishes at 12 over with a 73.
Thanks for coming
K.J. Choi shoots his second straight 71 to finish at 5 over.
Who's your caddy?
Argentina and Manchester City soccer player Carlos Tevez caddies for Andres Romero of Argentina during the final round. Maybe not such a good idea, as Romero shot an 82 to finish dead last.
