Through 54 holes, Adam Scott appeared poised to win his first major. Through 70 holes it still appeared that way.
With Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell self-destructing, the legend, Ernie Els made an improbable comeback over the last few holes, capping it with a birdie at No. 18.
After Els finished his tournament at -7, Scott led by one shot with two remaining. He bogeyed both to give Els the Claret Jug. Here is the final leaderboard:
|1||ELS , E.||18||-7||273|
