Following a birdie on hole No. 18 to finish his day and a four straight bogey collapse from leader Adam Scott, Ernie Els captured his second Claret Jug in a thrilling final round Sunday.

Els' run of accuracy and smart play were two keys to victory. While every other contender put together streaks of multiple bogies throughout the week, Els stayed steady. The Big Easy put together a tournament leading 79.2 greens in regulation percentage while never shooting an over-par round at Royal Lytham.

Scott's historic collapse, Tiger Woods' continued string of major disappointments, and Els' victory were all running narratives throughout the day. And as those narratives played themselves out, the masses took to Twitter to express their thoughts.  

What were some of the best tweets of the day? Follow along for a complete breakdown of the Twitter reaction to Ernie Els' capturing of the 141st British Open Championship.
