The 2012 British Open was an instant classic that most folks wouldn't mind watching the highlights of for years to come. Except Adam Scott.
Ernie Els found a way to take home the hardware from Royal Lytham's and St. Anne's after playing great all weekend. Els navigated the challenges better than the rest, winning with a score of 7-under for the tournament. However, it was Australian Scott who lost a massive lead on the back nine.
Scott bogeyed his final four holes, including the 18th on a very hittable putt that sealed his fate.
Nobody else was close by days end, with Tiger Woods not being much of a factor. Woods made par on his first five holes before shooting a triple bogey on the sixth thanks to a notorious English bunker.
St. John's alum Keegan Bradley finished his weekend with a 73 on Sunday. The Vermont native wound up tied for 34th place when all was set and done.
