British Open 2012: Analysis of Adam Scott's Disastrous Collapse

Going into the final round of the 2012 British Open no one could have predicted the kind of collapse that Adam Scott experienced.

There is no other word to describe it than disastrous.

At the start of the round, Scott held a four stroke lead over the rest of the contenders and seemed primed to continue his strong play en route to his first major win.

He was able to battle through a few early ups and downs, and finally on the 14th hole Scott was able to make birdie to once again extend his lead to four strokes.

A four stroke lead with only four holes to play. It seemed in the bag for Scott at this point—as long as he could keep playing decent golf.

What happened next will surely go down as one of the greatest monumental collapses ever.

In case you missed the downfall live, here is a play by play analysis of it—hole by hole—from the 15th to Scott's final collapse at the 18th.
