2012 British Open Results: Ernie Els Wins After Adam Scott Falls Apart

Although Adam Scott held a four stroke lead with just four holes to play, he could not make shots when it mattered most, allowing Ernie Els to capture his second career British Open title.

Scott bogeyed the last four holes of his round, which allowed Els to pick up the win after shooting an impressive round of two-under. Els was one of two golfers in the top-10 to shoot under par, which went a long way to the win.

Tiger Woods finished in a tie for third at three-under par with Brandt Snedeker. Woods struggled all day, posting a score of three-over that included a triple bogey on hole six which knocked him out of contention for the championship.
