LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND -- Adam Scott collapsed on the final day of the Open Championship, handing the Claret Jug to late - comer Ernie Els. Scott held a multi - stroke lead for most of Sunday, but ended his weekend with four straight bogeys, closing with a 75 after Els shot a 2 - under par 68 and entered the clubhouse just one stroke behind Scott. Scott then missed a putt inside of 10 feet on 18 to seal the win for Els. Tiger Woods also struggled with a 73 and was four strokes off the pace.
