Adam Scott entered the final round of the British Open on Sunday with a score of 11-under, looking as if he was going to cruise to victory without much of a challenge. Scott's clubs had other plans, however, as Scott found ways to falter down the stretch and did the work of shortening the gap for the other golfers in the field.
Scott opened the day with a bogey, then picked up two more bogeys through the first six holes of the course. With Ernie Els on his heels, Scott picked up a birdie on No. 14, looking like he'd recover and pull away again, but wound up picking up bogeys on the next two holes as Els tied for the lead at 7-under. On hole No. 17, Scott was able to land a tough shot to keep himself in the hunt but couldn't hold on and finished up with his third bogey in a row.
Scott finished up the day shooting a 5-over with a 6-under overall, surrendering the lead to Els after leading through much of the week.
